Kamui aka Svetlana Quindt is a talented costume and prop designer from Germany. Since starting cosplaying in 2003 she focused her skills on armor making. She is widely known for her impressive armor projects from World of Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft, but moreover because of her passion for sharing her self-taught knowledge with the cosplay community all over the world.

With over 10 years of experience, Kamui already created tons of written step by step instructions, video tutorials and lately became the author of several cosplay crafting books like “The Book of Cosplay Armor Making” and “The Book of Prop Making.” Even before she turned her hobby into a full-time job she was already a popular guest and professional costume creation panelist as well as a well known face at conventions like Montreal ComicCon, Japan Expo, Blizzcon, DragonCon, MCMExpo or Gamescom.

Over the years Kamui also acted as a judge for several international costume contests like the World Cosplay Summit or the European Cosplay Gathering, while still winning awards herself, like the Grand Prize at Blizzcon 2013.
