Shadow Sionnach is a cosplayer from Galway, Ireland. Here is a lil message from her:
“Greetings! My name is Emma, and I go by Shadow Sionnach in this wonderful cosplay hobby! I’ve been cosplaying since 2012! After going to my first convention and witnessing the wonderful costumes there, I wanted to give it a try, and I’ve been hooked ever since! I’ve been a con-goer, committee member, cosplay coordinator and cosplay judge over the years! And I’ve loved every moment of it! I’ve represented Ireland as the EuroCosplay 2017 finalist at MCM London! I mainly cosplay from anime, Disney and video games, trying to bring my favourite characters to life! I love being creative and cosplay fits that perfectly for me! “
Chloe // Cos Chloo is a fantastic cosplayer from Galway, Ireland. She will be rocking the stage with Shadow Sionnach as the Irish cosplay guests for J Con 2018. A message from Chloe:
Hi there! I am Chloo, and I am a Cosplayer from the West of Ireland. I have been cosplaying since 2010. My first cosplay was a rushed Misa Amane (Death Note) cosplay, pulled from my wardrobe that morning. I thought cosplaying was a requirement for anime cons!
When I arrived to the con, I found myself in a place of colourful wigs, outlandish outfits, and Akatsuki cloaks. It felt so welcoming and inviting. It was the beginning of something very new for me. I cosplay for the love of the characters and the love of the craft. A new cosplay always offers a new and exciting challenge – a new sewing technique, a challenging wig, or a new persona to portray! I am always learning and striving to improve.
I’m excited to share my knowledge and experience with you all!”
