Celia Sullivan is a cosplayer and singer based in Atlanta, Georgia (U.S.) She has wanted to be an elf since she was ten years old, and is having all sorts of fun being several of them now! However, her favorite and best-known cosplay is Nori from The Hobbit. It was Tolkien’s works that really inspired her to learn to sew, and she has since used those skills to pursue a career as a seamstress for tv and film. Additionally, she has been singing in choir her entire life, and has been a section leader and accompanist for Tolkien choir workshops at DragonCon and other U.S. events.

Rattle and Burn to Arthecon!

Rattle And Burn

We are happy to announce our next guest for Arthecon II!
Rattle and Burn or Vanya Yount is an American costume designer and a cosplayer. She will be hosting a costume panel and judging the cosplay competition alongside Avallone cosplay.

«I’ve been a fan of Tolkien’s work since a very young age, and later my interest in making costuming a profession came from being inspired by the LotR films. I’ve always had a specific image in mind of my favorite Silmarillion characters, and its been a passion project to bring them to life one by one.»

Vanya is a New York based designer, drafter, and costumer specializing in sewing and intricate needlework techniques. She has studied Fashion & Textile Technology at Buffalo State University, with a grand total of nineteen years of sewing experience.
