Cyprus Comic Con is proud to announce that our third Cosplay Special Guest is the talented Alex Reiss!
Alex (Alexandra Pankova) started cosplaying in 2010 and her first awards were for team stage plays. She enjoyed making costumes as well as acting on stage. Around 2013, she decided to concentrate on solo performances and on developing her crafting skills further. She learned a lot about working with various materials, starting from the simplest ones, such as plywood and papier-mache, to modern thermoplastics and advanced technologies like 3D print.
In 2014, her solo costumes started receiving recognition as well as awards and her biggest accomplishment so far is receiving 3rd place at MCM London ComicCon Eurocosplay in 2016 (which she says, won’t be the last!).
At the moment, she continues making new costumes, traveling around the world and sharing her experience and expertise with fellow cosplayers, through lectures and tutorials.
