Years of Experience
Hey there! We’re Svetlana and Benni!
Our costume adventure started in 2003 and we haven’t stopped creating since!
Together we spend most of our time building costumes and props from our favourite games, anime or movies. We love sharing our knowledge and crafting experience with the rest of the community through our books, videos, blog posts and tutorials.
Crafting is our life and we’re very thankful we can do this as our job.
What is Cosplay?
Cosplay is Love
For us, cosplay is the best way we can express our love for a fictional world or character.
Instead of just playing a game or watching a movie, we try to bring the character to life! And we’re not alone. Cosplay connects an huge worldwide community of passionate artists.
We don’t know gender, age, religion, skin color or body shape. It’s not about what separates us, but what we all have in common:
Dressing up and having fun!

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow! It not only has a really cool design, it also has LEDs – the perfect match to test my skills!
