12:30h All about Cosplay: Cosplay Make-up Gwendolyn Stoffels (Shiokuro) Although it’s possible to put on a beautiful cosplay without make-up, there are characters for whom the use of make-up is necessary. As a novice, or even advanced cosplayer, it isn’t always easy to find out where or how to start, which make-up is suitable for which purpose, and so on. Gwendolyn, better known as Shiokuro, is here to tell you everything about the safe and responsible use of make-up, crossplay make-up and how you can develop your own style in time with a presentation and a live model. Questions are more than welcome!

13:30h All about Cosplay: Cosplay Photography Shaniva Werkman When you see gorgeous pictures of a cosplayer with the right lighting, the right colours, the right atmosphere, do you sometimes wonder ‘how can I do something like that?’. Then you’ve come to the right place! Shaniva Werkman, Cosplay Photographer, will tell you all her tips and tricks on simple ways to get great photos  by showing some of her own work, together with model Nadja van Ham. She’ll explain what you should look for when choosing a background or foreground, how you can create an atmosphere, what dynamic angles are, how you can add extra visual effects, etc. and do all this without the use of a expensive camera! 15:30h The World of Tolkien in Music Jeroen Bakker Tolkien has done more with his work than just ‘writing a few books’. Tolkien’s world is rich in mythology, has an extensive history and is a complex union of different cultures and peoples. Music has always been an integral part of that world. So, through this lecture, Jeroen invites everyone, fan or no fan (yet?), to take a musical journey through Middle-Earth. Listen to the music that was inspired by Tolkien’s work and join us on a quest that’ll take us from the mountains of heavy metal to the depths of the Silmarillion operas by Paul Corfield Godrey. (If you like the music it’s possible to buy (signed) CDs afterwards.)

10:30h Welcome to Dungeons & Dragons Ronald in 't Groen When playing a Roleplaying Game, either on PC/console or on a board, you’ll often come across the phrase ‘Based on (the rules of) Dungeons & Dragons’. But what exactly is that ‘Dungeons & Dragons’, other than a cartoon from the 80s? What does it mean to be a Dungeon Master, why is the manual so (mind-numbingly) extensive and how can YOU become an adventurer in this world? Saddle up your imagination, grab your sword and take your first step into the world of Dungeon & Dragons! 12:30h From Fanfiction to Publication Amanda Collins Do you like to write fanfiction or stories and would you like to do more than publish them on fansites? Boost your self-confidence and increase your chances at publication! During this lecture Amanda will give you examples, tips, tricks and advice to go from fan fiction to published fiction and explains how you too can become a published author. 16:30h All about Cosplay: Cosplay Boudoir Angielu Cosplay Cosplay Boudoir is a growing trend in the cosplay community. While boudoir photography is characterized by an intimate, romantic and sometimes erotic atmosphere with the model often posing in lingerie, cosplay mainly revolves around portraying or interpreting a character through a costume (and make-up)  that’s as accurate as possible. Is posing as a fictional character in lingerie still cosplay? Why do people want to do this? How has the community responded to this trend? I’ll answer all these questions based on personal experience. Are you curious to learn more or do you have any questions? Join me in this lecture about Cosplay Boudoir!
