Let's welcome back cosplayer Velours Requiem to A-Kon 28! She's going to be our Hall Cosplay Judge this year. Velours Requiem is a self taught Texas cosplayer who has created over 80 costumes and counting over the course of 11 years. Driven by her aspirations to become a professional designer, she uses her artistic background, cosplay and growing passion for the J-Fashion community as a medium to express her creativity and motivation. Her style focuses on her specialty of Crossplay combined with intensive detailing of existing designs or self created ones, and thus has acquired the nickname "King of Bling." Her specialties lie in beading, jewelry making, and finding ways to personify a character's personality or quirks through the use of detail work. Her work has landed her several awards, ranging from Best in Show to Judges Choice and even opportunities to work as a promotional model and a guest judge at various conventions. Destiny's personal philosophy in life is to never give up. Although the path may be difficult, with hard work and determination you can attain your dreams. #COSPLAY #AKON28
