Self introduction

Hello! My name is Aleksandra, or Shappi in the Internet realm , and I am cosplayer from Poland!

My adventure with cosplay had started on manga and anime conventions in 2009. For many years I have been improving my skill in costumes creating and gradually specializing in creating armors, wings and huge props.

I had the honor of representing my country in different international competitions, a few times coming home with awards for Poland! I love sharing my knowledge about costume creation techniques on my social media or YouTube channel, where you can find also videos with my current projects.

I'm so excited to visit Genki! Denmark have such an amazingly talented cosplayers, so I'm sure that the cosplay show will be a blast! Thank you so much for having me 🙂

Panel at Genki

Cosplayer in a Social Media World
Cosplayers put their hearts and souls into complicated costumes, huge props or breathtaking make ups. We spend so much time on our cosplays and we want to share it with the world and social media is the best way to do it.

In this panel I want to tell you how to successfully build your portfolio on social media as a cosplay artist through various platforms.
