Awards & Event Hosting

I travel to events globally to showcase my work, and have won a variety of awards for my craftsmanship and design skills. My most recent and notable award is first place at the Global Championships of Cosplay qualifier. I received this award at Birmingham MCM Comic Con for my replica costume of Rian (from hit Netflix series, "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance"). This costume featured a combination of advanced sewing methodology, high quality prop design with screen-accuracy and special FX make up: as well as this award, it also placed first at the 'Great Con-Junction' event held at Esltree Studios, the filming location for the Netflix series on which the costume was based. I have won "Best in Show" and "Best Costume" at multiple MCM Comic Con & independently run events. 

As well as gaining recognition for my work in competition, I have also been featured in articles by NEO, ScifiNow Magazine (issue 117 / March edition) and MCM Buzz. It was a joy to be interviewed and featured by them!

I have also worked with various event organizers and promotional sponsored projects, by being invited as a guest, to host events or by creating a costume for them. These have been wonderful experiences, and have provided me the opportunity to give back to the community. At events I can often be found helping aspiring artists with their costume or design work, hosting panels that give useful crafting tips, and running interactive workshops.

One of my favourite experiences was attending Insomnia Gaming Festival as a guest.

I was given the task of judging the costume contest, together with wonderful other craftsmen, as well as The Cosplay Championships event on the main stage. I had an incredible time, and got to see so many amazing pieces of art!

If you would like to work with me for either a commission or for promotional projects, host or guest at an upcoming event, contact me directly via email at: kishicreates@gmail.com, contact me here or send a message through my social media accounts, I would love to have a chat!
