Hi! We are Liza and Sophie and together we are Team Paraluna. Thanks to cosplay we travel all over the world. Apart from being at the World Cosplay Summit finals in Japan, we’ve also represented the Netherlands at the European Cosplay Gathering finals in Paris, the EuroCosplay finals in London, the C4 finals in The Hague and at CICAF in China.

It’s quite a list of places, and every journey has brought us beautiful memories and fantastic new friends. We feel thankful and grateful for these experiences every day.

We make all our costumes completely from scratch and with each new project we aim to hone our skills. Our cosplays vary from elaborate dresses, that involve corsetry and embroidery, to full-body armors. We also love to work with special-effects makeup to bring even the less human-looking characters to life. Cosplay for us is a way to express our love for the character, but also a way to challenge ourselves to tackle a new, more difficult project each time. We love to invent new ways to make a costume work, but in the end, doing a photoshoot with the costumes is also very rewarding.
