JD aka Arlek1 started cosplaying in July 2012. He likes all kinds of costumes but he has a soft spot for costumes which allow him to use a wide range of techniques and materials. Arlek1 loves this hobby especially because it allows him to meet new people and to share his passion with them. He also loves the fact this hobby allows him to have fun by “becoming” tons of different characters.
Alerk1 won the 3rd place during the European Cosplay Gathering finals in 2015. Props and armor making isn’t only a hobby for JD, as he is also a professionally trained props maker as well as the lead props maker on the French series « L’Incroyable Odyssée ». Arlek1 will judge the Saturday Cosplay Contest and will give a masterclass about armor making and molding on Sunday the 23rd from 11.30am to 12.30 in the Cosplay Workshops Room (Flex 1).
