Our fifth voice actor guest of honour, Sugar Lyn Beard, is as sweet as her name. Her iconic voice came to be practically inseparable from Rini/Sailor Minimoon and we are thrilled to have her appearing for the first time at the Toronto Sailor Moon Celebration.
Our fourth voice actor guest of honour is Susan Roman. Being part of the wacky, wonderful world of animation for most of her adult life has been a dream come true for Susan. Let’s be frank: some of her earlier efforts didn’t exactly light up the galaxy. But along the way, she worked on projects that have since become mainstream classics. She is probably best known as the voice of Sailor Jupiter in the original English dub of Sailor Moon.
Our third voice actor guest of honour, Jill Frappier, was the original voice of Luna for the entire run of the DiC and Cloverway dubs of Sailor Moon. She is an actor, storyteller, drama teacher “extraordinaire,” and has performed in well over 100 plays at major theatres in Toronto and across Canada, including the Shaw and Stratford Festivals. She also makes pottery, under the brand Jill’s Objets.
Our second voice actor guest of honour, Ron Rubin, is well known as the original voice of Artemis for the entire run of the DiC and Cloverway dubs of Sailor Moon. He is one of the busiest animation actors around and his voice can be heard on countless anime shows and cartoon series. For more about Ron, be sure to check out his website.
Our seventh cosplay guest of honour, GreyCosplay, is a Toronto based cosplayer who has been enjoying the art and the challenge of bringing his favourite characters to life for 4 years. From anime and manga to video games and comics, Grey has dabbled in it all.
Our sixth cosplay guest this year is Phil Mizuno, an up and coming Canadian-native cosplayer who followed his heart and is pursuing his passion to empower others through positivity and creativity. Phil has been cosplaying for just over 2 years, and currently lives and creates his cosplays in Toronto, Ontario.
