Meet AMA-CON 2017 Special Cosplay Guest Dat Ashe Cosplay

Dat Ashe Cosplay is a Finnish-American cosplayer.  He has been cosplaying since 2010, but started taking it to the next level in 2013. With over 40+ costumes, Ashe is most known for his stunning makeup, wig, and stitchwork; but he also has a strong ability to “Frankenstein” his Cosplay creations.

He’s worked as a burlesque dancer for Texan Heat Nerdlesque, is currently working for both Delta H Con and on photo-sets for Cosplay Deviants, and works as a freelance makeup artist.

Ashe is looking forward to all of the amazing costumes over the weekend!

How awesome would it be to stay in a Godzilla-centered hotel?!  At the Hotel Gracery in Shinjuku, you can just that!  There are two suites – the Godzilla Room and the Godzilla View Room – that overlook the head of a giant Godzilla, perched atop the hotel, and are packed with all kinds of fun Godzilla-themed decor!

If you’re planning a trip to Japan anytime soon, you may want to add this to your itinerary.  (I know I am!) For more information, please visit
