FanCon 2018 confirmed guests

More guest announcements will be made over the coming months

RIDDLE (Riki Lecotey) is an internationally recognised cosplayer and costume maker from Canada, now based in the USA, who has been involved in costuming for almost 20 years. She’s been invited to conventions around the world, to judge cosplay contests, host workshops and panels, and promote cosplay. She is renowned in the cosplay community for her ability to translate costumes and focus on craftmanship. Says Riki “ each costume presents its own set of challenges, requiring me to learn new skills like translation, sculpting, molding, casting and of course, sewing”. Riki was a main cast member on both seasons of Heroes of Cosplay, the SyFy reality show which aired in 2013-2014, creating memorable costumes and winning the most number of awards while there. She also works as a costumer and prop maker on Marvel movies, handling specialty costumes on set. Her credits include X-Men First Class, Captain America Civil War, Spider-Man Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and the upcoming Avengers Infinity War. Riki is the creator of Cosplay For A Cause, a charity project that makes cosplay calendars to raise funds for various causes, including the Japanese Red Cross, Filipino Red Cross, and the Wildlife Conservation Society. Her favourite act of charity, however, is rescuing and rehabilitating baby squirrels.
Riddle lives in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
