Ailyta

Ailyta is a cosplayer from Switzerland currently based in the UK. What started in 2015 as pure curiosity for costuming and crafting rapidly became a passion and led her to meet new people, travel and compete. She developed a large range of skills from crafting to photography and stage performance and thinks her work as a game artist is really helpful with shapes and specific programs like photoshop and illustrator. It indeed became really handy when she started representing Switzerland on multiple occasions in the international scene where she recently won best needlework during the tournament of champions 2023.

Faroni

Faroni’s cosplay journey started in 2014 when his friends introduced him to the world of cosplay.  For Faroni cosplay is a way to challenge himself as an artist, sharpen his problem-solving skills, and create art on stage, in photoshoots, and online. Cosplay also combines three of his passions: crafting, makeup, and performing on stage.  Every cosplay experience is unique and precious to him, but one of the most exciting and inspiring experiences was the Nordic Cosplay Championship (NCC) 2023 where he placed first place and also won the audience choice.  He saw so much passion, talent, and hard work while he was there and met many amazing fellow cosplayers. Faroni can’t wait to see YOUR passion and love for cosplay at DreamHack Summer!

Knightofwands

Kaj (knightofwandscosplay) has a burning passion for – as well as an university background in – art and textile history. Cosplay for him is a way to explore and research historical techniques in a casual and hands-on way. Plant dyeing from plants grown in his own garden, wet felting wool, fabric manipulation and weaving, and of course many hours of embroidery are all things he loves doing, and seeing others do in cosplay! Kaj strives towards a low-environment footprint in his craft, so he largely harvests and uses materials from various thrifting adventures: from curtains and bedsheets, to upcycled household materials, recently pepsi cans and broom handles. He has been cosplaying on and off for around ten years, but decided to get into competitions more recently, and has since competed in Cosplay-SM, and represented Sweden in the first ever Tournament of Champions, where he won Best Craftsmanship.  In his day life he is currently studying the craft of furniture upholstery and renovating a small hobbit house, as well as watching a lot of horror movies with his wife.
