Bamzy Cosplay – Guest of Honour

With 12 years of conventions and 8 years of cosplaying under her belt, Bamzy is a face of the local community that many recognize. Bamzy has been captivated by anime and video games since she was small. Watching things like Sailor Moon, Card Captors, and more kickstarted her drive to be the strong, creative, and independent woman that she is today.

Entering the convention community in 2008, Bamzy was thrust into a world that she felt at home and truly accepted in all her “weirdness” that separated her from the normal interests of her peers. Seeing all the individuals running around dressed up as their favourite characters and heroes was instantly something she knew she wanted to be a part of.

Normally adorned in big armour builds or wielding a large prop or weapon, she is someone who is always friendly and loves to interact with new people as well as share her love and passions for crafting, anime, and video games.

Over the last 3 years, she has begun to teach workshops and panels for building, painting, and creating cosplay armour and props. Sharing her knowledge to help others craft and create has become her new love of the hobby.

You can find most of her work on her Instagram, Facebook page and Patreon.
