Anne, “Annelune Cosplay”, attended her first cosplay convention in 2010. The community, cosplaying, crafting and the joy gave her such an amazing experience that she continued to cosplay for the years to come.
2015 was the first time she stepped on the big cosplay stage, and in 2016 she won her first international duo. After that she continued to participate in several international preliminaries earning several wins and the chance to represent Netherlands at international contests like the European Cosplay Gathering.
Anne also has been invited to judge several competitions both in her own country and at international conventions. Anne enjoys the challenge of bringing a character to life.
In 2016 she decided on following a tailor-made education, to attain the skills of being a seamstress. These skills now come in practice with every new costume she makes, although her costumes are mainly focused on sewing, she also loves making things outside of her comfort-zone and never strides away from a challenge.
Aside from the joy she gets from crafting, the biggest thrill she gets is bringing a character to life on stage. She loves how clothes and acting can make a certain character truly pop to life.
Next to being a cosplayer her free time is also well spent reading manga, watching Anime, and online gaming.
These days she works as a freelancer in theater and takes on commission work for cosplay and fashion. She loves traveling all around the world and meeting new people.
