ANNOUNCING AUTUMNVIRUS COSPLAY

kigacon picture copy.jpg

Raksmey Prak is a college graduate and has been a cosplayer since 2010; over 7 years now. Her first anime convention was Otakon 2010, and her first cosplay was Farah from the Prince of Persia: Two Thrones. Since then, she has loved designing, crafting, and making cosplays, and her love for attending conventions grew. She has, since then, set her alias name to AutumnVirus Cosplay. She has seen herself become more of an armor based cosplayer because she enjoys crafting, building props and armor. Not only is she a cosplayer, but she is also a model and a Twitch affiliate. Gaming is a big part of her life, and she is currently trying to make cosplay, modeling, and gaming/streaming a full time career. 

She has attended Creator Con Festival 2017 as a cosplay guest & judge and was awarded 3rd place in the cosplay contest. She was also a cosplay guest and cosplay judge for last year's Norfolk Anime Explosion in Norfolk, VA and Anime-Mid Atlantic in Norfolk, VA! She is currently sponsored by Waifuwear apparel, Arawelo Shop apparel, and Gymmonkee fitness apparel. 

She hopes to progress even further with her cosplays and her Twitch streaming in the near future. Cosplay and streaming aren't her hobby, they're her passion and dream. 

You’ll find AutumnVirus in the Vendors’ Room with Waifuwear and as a judge for our Cosplay Contest. Be sure to stop by the Vendors' Room and check our her awesome cosplays!

Dynamic Duchess Cosplay has been an avid cosplayer since 2016. While she's renowned for her RWBY cosplays, Dynamic Duchess is also notorious for her love of villains, psychopaths, and yanderes. You'll catch her as Neapolitan and Cinder Fall of RWBY, Jinx of League of Legends, and Gasai Yuno of Future Diary (Mirai Nikki).

Dynamic Duchess, also known as Lex, will be hosting an autograph session and panels during Kigacon 2018, and you'll find her booth in our Vendors' Room. Be on the lookout for Dynamic Duchess and her wicked cosplays!

Show Us Your Pokeballs (SUYP) is a traveling comedy troupe based out of Iowa wishing to spread their love of joke-telling and geek-culture to the masses. Billing themselves as "Comedy FOR Nerds, BY Nerds", SUYP originated as an R-rated stand up show in 2015.

The troupe has since evolved to offer stand up and improv comedy shows (both 18+ and family-friendly), as well as an assortment of workshops and hilarious panels! SUYP has had the honor of performing at a multitude of conventions, including Anime Central, Cedar Rapids Comic Con, Gen Con, Anime Milwaukee, and Anime Iowa.
