Ai-Kon is happy to announce 2 additions to our 2015 guest line up!
Posted by Katie on May 24, 2015
Please welcome back Greg Ayres and for the first time, VickyBunnyAngel Cosplay!
Returning for his 7th year to Ai-Kon, Greg Ayres continues to wow his audiences with amazing industry stories, fan favourite panels and leaves everyone breathless at the Saturday night rave!
A veteran nightclub DJ of many years, Greg has really enjoyed the opportunity of doing something else that he truly loves at conventions. From packed rooms at anime conventions, to the legendary stage of The Knitting Factory (NYC), Greg never misses an opportunity to share his love of music with anyone who will listen.
Vickybunnyangel is a Master level cosplayer hailing from the Great White North. Over the course of her 10+ year journey in the realm of cosplay she’s won numerous awards for her costumes, and her portfolio continues to be featured countless times in the media. She enjoys sharing her work progress on social media and also frequently teaches cosplay panels at local conventions. When it comes to cosplays, if it’s pretty, has armour, or presents a workmanship challenge, then Vicky will gravitate towards it.
When she’s not working on cosplay, Vicky also streams on Twitch.TV and mostly plays League of Legends with her fanbase.
