We are honored to announce that Shappi Workshop from Poland will be our guest of honor and special cosplay judge at the upcoming 2018 Summer MondoCon! She has attended several competitions in the past, where she was awarded for her amazing craft and performance skills. She came 1st in the European Cosplay Gathering 2013 and in the Cosplay World Masters Finals 2014. Another big milestone from her life is that she translated Kamui Cosplay’s cosplay book, which was recently released in her home country. She is known of her monumental cosplay builds and enthusiasm about experimenting with new materials.
This is how she describes herself: “Hello! My name is Aleksandra, but people call me Shappi. I am a cosplayer from Poland! I have been cosplaying and creating my own costumes from scratch since 2009. This hobby has changed my life for the better in countless ways and I am excited to share this happiness with you! […] Cosplay to me is a way of expressing myself, broadening my crafting skills and having fun! I’ve created over 70 costumes by now.”
Shappi will also have a panel about ‘Cosplayers and social media’ on sunday from 13:00.
