Fantasy First

Bep has started early in making costumes and evening wear. As self thought she had done this as a hobby, but even then her hobby brought her success. There has been a collection of Bep, which was for sale in a large store chain in the Netherlands. Bep has been practising many creative hobby's and costume making was sometimes at the back of her mind. As a photographer she came in contact with the world of Elfia and since then the virus is completely back! Bep is busy at the moment to make her hobby her profession and already has assignments for Bepstyle. Because of her knowledge and enthusiasm we thought it was time to place her amongst the judges of the Costume Parade. Bep mainly wants to see creativity and fantasy in the designs.

She says:”It is a fantasyfair, so I think fantasy should be a top priority”.

Rhaya Cosplay

Greetings, Elfians! I am Suzan Gieles, better known in the costume community as Rhaya Cosplay. I make costumes and props, both for myself and as commissions. My specialization is armor, though I do spend quite a bit of time at my trusty sewing machine for most of my projects. I also teach workshops on making cosplays and on how to use different kinds of material like Worbla.

During the costume parade I am going to be on the lookout for creativity, but of course I’ll watch for detailing, finishing, and I’m hoping to see a lot of wonderful acts.
