My name is Ashley, also known as Ilunaneko,
I'm a Dutch cosplayer and Theater designer who started this hobby in 2010. When I started I had no idea how big this community was. I went to my first convention, Abunai, with my best friend and Cosplay partner Annelune. Ever since then I was hooked!
I started creating costumes, learning new techniques and making friends from all over the world.
In all those years of cosplay I had the honor of Judging a lot of competitions, hosting Workshops and Lectures about various topics, and I even had the chance to represent the Netherlands in multiple worldwide competitions!
Aside from Cosplaying, I have a degree in Theater Design. I'm very lucky my hobby connects to my workfield, as I can combine my everyday life with this amazing community!
I hope I will be able to share my experience and love for this hobby with all of you, and I wish you all the best in all your future plans!
