Pretenders Cosplay Panel Returns!

We are excited to announce that the Pretenders Cosplay Panel will return to TFNation 2018. This year we have a mixture of new and returning panellists ready to discuss the ins and outs of costume, prop and giant robot making and take questions from attendees.

TFNation’s very own experienced cosplayer crew members Isa and Tori return to host the panel. This year they will again be joined by three panellists who are avid Transformers cosplayers and TFNation Cosplay Contest winners.

A familiar face to those who attended 2017’s Cosplay Panel is Chaozrael. Chaozrael is an extremely prolific cosplayer, often specialising in making armour from thermoplastics, who won second place in the robot category last year with an imposing Tyrest cosplay. They will also be joined by two Cosplay Panel newcomers, but Transformers cosplay veterans, Axylh and kage7632. Axylh dazzled TFNation attendees last year with her Necrobot cosplay, taking first place in the robot category. Kage7632 is a longstanding Transformer cosplayer, who often takes on huge rig costumes, and won third place in the robot category with his Nova Prime in 2017.

The panel will take place at 12pm on Sunday in the Panel Room. Whether you’re a newbie to cosplay, a veteran, or someone simply interested in just how all those weird and wonderful costumes get made, we encourage you to check out the Pretenders Cosplay Panel to learn more about this extremely creative part of the Transformers fandom.
