We are thrilled to announce our next special guest, Mon! Hailing from Taiwan, Mon is one of the most well-known cosplayers on WorldCosplay, having a following of over 50,000 fans. Her most famous cosplays include characters from Vocaloid and Attack on Titan.
Mon is recognized not just for her incredible talent in hand-making costumes, but also the way she truly brings the characters to life through the details of the cosplay, including her own way of wig-styling and her unique sense for creating new makeup looks for every character. Behind the cosplay, Mon is known to have a fun and bubbly personality, and we can’t wait to meet her this summer!

We are incredibly excited to announce that cosplayer stayxxx will be joining us for Anirevo: Summer! Coming to us from Taiwan, stayxxx is hugely recognized for her stunning cosplays including Levi from Attack on Titan and Makoto from Free!

While having an eye for detail and dexterity for craftsmanship are important in forming cosplays, a key part of her process is selecting a character with whom she feels a deep connection with. Prior to choosing a character to cosplay, stayxxx enjoys watching or reading the work to gain an understanding of the character. Her vision for cosplay is one that is admired by many, and we can’t wait to learn more about her at this year’s con! 宇佐見 秋彥 / Usami Akihiko from shoujo manga Junjou Romantica: Pure Romance
