Au-Chan: Cosplay, Jewelry, and Accessories Designer
It was at Fanamanga where I met Aura, or, rather, Au-chan. A devoted Otaku, she now designs her own Cosplay clothing, jewelry and accessories..
Originally from Mexico, Au-chan created the Kawaru Wa Yo workshop here in Quebec. While she enjoys her new home, she regrets there isn’t a TV channel dedicated to anime.
Her adventure began in 2008 when her origami jewelry business’ success led her to assemble a team of two seamstresses, a community manager, and a doll clothing and accessories specialist to quench the thirst of Quebecois Otakus.
Au-chan is driven to supply tailor-made cosplay on demand Bring her your manga or video game character drawing/photo and get ready to feel like you’re at Nadeshicon or Otakuthon.
In addition to being talented, Au-chan has a big heart. Her business also designs cat-themed accessories which raises money for the Gimli cat shelter.
The adventure doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon, as she will soon add a collection of bath accessories, scarves, and sushi-shaped pillows. In short, there are many surprises to come.
She’s also currently organizing the first Geek market in Quebec which will be held the first weekend of November. Start saving for it now!
