Costume/modelling inspirations.


I know I haven't been updating cosplay news much online and seem inactive. I am currently looking for a job with more hours so I can travel to do shoots and cosplays, experience conventions abroad. My aims over the summer is to get driving lessons, get my full licence, find a good job with more hours to fund my cosplay projects, save and go travelling.

I have been still quite busy with the Japanese cultural events on the side which is wonderful! Myself and photographer Steve Dempsey have been talking about the Rei maid shoot and plan on doing it in June. We want a really nice location for the set to show what Ireland has to offer. ;p 

Thanks for all your amazing support.x :) Going to keep positive.

Maid Rei Preview by Cairdiuil
Maid Rei Preview
Really like this costume.

I think the white gloves are a nice touch kinda resembling the plugsuit. Still need to do a full make-up test.x

Have been discussing with a photographer on this shoot and we are looking at doing the photoshoot in June.
Over the last two weeks I took part in two Podcasts;

This one was with Irish Dublin based Anime, Manga convention Nom-Con. I would recommend you listen to it if you want to find out what the convention scene is like in Ireland -…

This was a lot fun taking part in Dublin based radio station Spin FM radio interview on the Experience Japan Festival -…

Hope they work in your region!

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

I am a passionate, cosplayer performer 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 very interested in Otaku/internet culture, anime and manga and like doing photoshoots on these topics.

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."

Rei Ayanami - Neon Genesis Evangelion
