Special Guests

Who are you going to meet?

Special Guests are like a box of chocolates: If you squeeze them, they break. Also like a box of chocolates, having a good selection makes everything soooo much better. Which is why we've worked hard to bring you the best selection possible. 

Special Guests: You want them, we got them.

Patrick Seitz who is an popular American voice actor will be joining us at Akumakon 2023

He is known for voice acting characters such as Jiren from Dragon Ball, Franky from One Piece, Dio from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Laxus Dreyar from Fairy Tail, Endeavor from My Hero Academia and many more!

Dallas Reid has been doing this for a bit. Longer than some, not as long as others. They don’t remember the exact figure.

Conventions are still new to them, so be nice if you see them out there walking around or
you come to one of their panels. Dallas is known primarily for their role in Black Clover as Asta, the loudest one. A badge of honor, of sorts, considering how loud many of the other characters also get.

Some of the other characters they've played include Yamatonokami Yasusada in Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru,Hideki/Rusian in And You Thought There is Never a Girl Online!?, Liqueur in Dragon Ball Super, and Person Who Definitely Isn't So Nervous They're About to Vomit in THIS VERY CONVENTION! They'll see you around the building.

Actress, writer, and fangirl turned industry professional Jill Harris has likely been in some of your favourite anime! And maybe some of your least favorite anime, too. And probably a whole bunch of anime you feel “meh” about.

Most notably, she’s voiced Noelle in Black Clover, Mandalay in My Hero Academia, Chiyo in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., and Hifumi in NEW GAME!.

Some other personal favorites include
Mayaka in Hyouka, Naho in Orange, Rikka in SSSS.Gridman, and Nino in The Quintessential Quintuplets.

Jill does things outside of anime, too! Like that time when she voiced Charlie in Hazbin Hotel or Alani in Battleborn. And then there was that time when she wrote “Corona Borealis”, a visual novel now available on Steam and Itch.io.

We are happy to announce that Hbomberguy will be a guest at Akumakon 2023!

He is a British video essay producer who makes videos on his YouTube channel on many different film, television, and video games, including things related to politics and social justice.

You may also recognize him from his twitch streams or his popular video essays on the likes of RWBY, Sherlock and various video-games. We can’t wait to have him join us!

This is Laura our Akumakon Alumni and she has been cosplaying since she was about 12 years old when she first attended a convention.

She prefers to make her cosplays all by hand from sewing, to armor, to even the jewellery.

She is super excited to be a guest at Akumakon! And we are just as excited to have her join us!

Bambi Lashes Design first made her own cosplay in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since!

She cosplays from video games, anime and film with a particular fondness for elaborate sewing projects. Her very favourite place to be is in front of her sewing machine but she also loves to experiment and expand her craft, and dabbles in wig work, corsetry and shoemaking.

She has both won and judged multiple international competitions, having most recently taken home Best in Show at the 2022 CRX Hime Cosplay Cup, and having represented Ireland in Eurocosplay 2019. She loves to share what she has learned by creating patterns and tutorials and she hopes to always keep on crafting!
