Cosplay guest of honor: Nana Kuronoma from Austria

Hello everyone!

My Name is Nana Kuronoma and I´m a cosplayer since 200 who lives in Austria. At the beginning, my cosplays was terrible! I don´t know how to style wigs, what is a good quality of fabrics, where I can buy contect lenses, … But with the help of my friends, I grow up! I learned more and more about all the Cosplaystuff and now, I´m here and I have to say: My cosplays look much better 😀 I didn’t specialize in a Cosplaystyle, I like to do different types of Cosplay. I like the variety! Cosplay is a feeling for me, not only a Business. For me it´s important to have fun at the convention, spend time with my awesome followers and answear your questions about Cosplay. 

Some people say I´m a “famous/eliteCosplayer”, but the truth is, I´m just a normal Cosplayer like you, not more and not less. I don´t put myself on a pedestal, because I have some followers >.> My followers motivate me, supporting me and give me the power to work day by day for my new cosplays, so I have to put all of them on a pedestal! It´s also a very strange feeling when everyone is looking at you, your social medias and waiting for new photos. There are some days where I ask “Why they like my stuff so much? I´m just normal.” then my husband say “No, you don´t! And that’s the reason!”

After all this time, I want to give something back with Workshops, Tutorials, Prints, Merchandising, meet and greet, Motivation Posts on the internetand so much more! I try to show other cosplayers that we are like a little family and not like enemies. So, that´s what I am and what I do!

I really hope to see you at Spring MondoCon 2022 and take a photo with you in your wonderful cosplay!!
