Hosting and Judging

Mariam and Tabby have been both hosting and judging cosplay masquerades since 2022. Most frequently, this is as Guild of Nerds members at Megacons. 

Judging Skills

We have complimentary skill sets, with the vast majority of cosplay-relevant specialisms covered between us.

Organisation Experience

We were a part of the cosplay team responsible for putting together the Cosplay Championships and Masquerade at Comic Con Wales. The events were very well received, with shining feedback for our team. We collected feedback with an online form which we are happy to share upon request.

We both also have a wealth of non-cosplay related professional event management and organisation experience, CVs available on request.
