Darling and Sylar, known together as Aicosu, believe that Cosplay should be cheap, easy, and accessible for everyone, and strive to make that a reality through their craft.

Aicosu (愛コス, aikosu) is a portmanteau of the japanese translation of Love (愛) Cosplay (コスプレ) or Lover’s Cosplay. Darling and Sylar formed Aicosu in 2009 after meeting at a convention. After 15 years cosplaying together they have attended over 100 conventions, made over 200 cosplays, Masters accolades, and a myriad of panels and workshops. You’re likely to see them on the Concourse, hosting Cosplay Masquerade, or stop by their table at Artist Alley and they are ready to answer any question!

FanimeCon is excited to have our favorite cosplay couple back again in 2023.
