Mu Cosplay schedule for Shamrokon

Cosplay: How to Start Workshop

Saturday 10:00 - 12:00, G. Room 6 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

An introductory workshop on cosplay giving some handy tips on what you can do without an industrial sewing machine and years of practice.
With Matty

Back To The Couture

Saturday 14:00 - 15:00, E. Room 1/2 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

A 30s silver capes and hotpants, Star Trek jumpsuits, or Jean-Paul Gaultier's orange-vested Fifth Element vision? Which future fashion would the panelists pick to wear on a daily basis? Or is everyone just going to chose Han Solo's comfy-looking jacket?

From Sequins to Rivets: A Look Into Cosplay

Sunday 14:00 - 15:00, E. Room 1/2 (Double Tree by Hilton Dublin Burlington Road)

Cosplay is beyond mainstream now with thousands of people turning up to cons around the world in the most amazing costumes. Why are people so passionate about it? What are the greatest costumes our panellists have worn or seen and what's their dream creation?


I will be cosplaying as Saber Lily (my cosplay from Eirtakon) and thinking of cosplaying as Ayanami Rei giving she is from a sci-fi genre and is striking.

Shamrokon is a Eurocon event and will be held in Dublin this weekend. Irish Tourism will be sponsoring it. Internationally known artist Jim Fitzpatrick will be a guest. I am looking forward to it. -

Cairdiuil's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
My name is Amy. I go by my cosplay name Cairdiúil.

I am a passionate, cosplayer and keen amateur model who expresses art in photos rather than drawing or painting. I love the modelling and acting part of cosplaying and love making photos interesting for the viewer.

I like photography, anime, exchanging Irish culture, Japan, travelling and anything creative. Motivation, drive and ambitions will get me to where I want to be! I have a postgraduate Diploma in Cultural Event Management and degree in Cultural Studies. I am an Events Organiser specialising in Japanese culture, anime, manga events here in Ireland and worked as a Conference Angel. As well as modelling I also done MC-ing for Dublin Comic Con and for Dublin International Comic Expo and annually for Experience Japan.

Personal Quote
"I am neither false nor fake, I am simply me. I become myself by the instrumentality of the links and relationships between myself and others. I am formed by interaction of others. They create me as I create them. Contact with people and the passage of time change the shape of my heart."
