Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s AniMatsuri 2019 cosplay competition’s second guest judge, Pilerud’s Cosplay from Sweden!

Pilerud has been cosplaying since 2011 when he realized his childhood dream of becoming a Stormtrooper and joined the 501st Legion, a worldwide charity and cosplay organization. Since then he’s brought to life a number characters, such as Xenomorph from Alien, Space Marine from Warhammer 40,000, and Benny from The LEGO Movie. In his daily life, Pilerud is currently producing his very first feature length movie titled ‘Call of the Unseen’ that merges his cosplay hobby and professional film making.
