Don’t miss the free public lecture with renowned cosplayer, Takahiro (Goldy) Sakai, of the World Cosplay Summit on Monday 22 August from 10.30 am – 11.20 am at RMIT Brunswick.

We still have some tickets left – but the last seats are filling fast.

Goldy, a costume and prop‐making expert from Japan, is a mecha (robot anime) expert. His speciality is recreating the armour of characters from Japanese manga and anime.

Goldy is renowned in the cosplay community for his elaborate armour constructions, including Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, Gurren Lagann from Tengen Topppa Gurren Lagann, and the Strike Freedom Fighter from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny.

This is Goldy’s only appearance in Melbourne. If you are interested in costume design, prop making, Japanese subculture, cosplay and anime – don’t miss out!

Participants will see how cosplay has developed from a minor subculture into a new tool of cross‐cultural exchange worldwide and gain insight into Japan’s tradition of fine craftsmanship.
