Kelowna ComiCon welcomes international award-winning cosplayer, A.K. WIRRU to our Guest roster for 2022!
A.K. WIRRU has to be the biggest cosplay name to hit the Okanagan convention circuit yet!
Originally from Australia, A.K. WIRRU has made a name for himself not just as an award-winning cosplayer, but as a cosplay-builder as well.
When he is not modelling his latest works, he is building not just cosplay, but tutorials on how to achieve his affects. You can find over 50 mini-tutorials on A.K. WIRRU's website, but that is just a fraction of what you can learn from his many cosplay books and patterns!
With 70 competition awards to date, A.K. WIRRU is not just known for his ability, but is celebrated as well. Here are just some of the notable awards A.K. WIRRU has taken home:
- World Cosplay Summit Grand Champion 2019
- World Cosplay Summit Team Australia 2019
- C2e2 Global Crown Championships of Cosplay Runner Up 2018
- Global Crown Championships of Cosplay OzComic-Con Australian Champion 2017
A.K. WIRRU now travels the world as a cosplay competition judge and workshop presenting guest. And as far as we're concerned, any pop-culture event should feel lucky to have him.
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, here is another 6,000 words to describe this level of talent!
"I found cosplay through my first anime convention in 2004 when I participated as a fan artist. Since then I have fallen in love with creating visually interesting costumes and paying tributes to characters I love from scratch. I started entering competitions in 2006 and got hooked into it. In 2014 I decided to make tutorials and now I’m hooked on teaching others about my craft." - A.K. WIRRU
