Maker Faire Hannover: Where DIY YouTubers, Cosplayers, and Light Artists Meet


Maker Faire Hannover, now in its 8th year, has a long tradition of bringing together crazy projects from amazing makers. From elaborate art cars to disco balls that come together during the event for an amazing dance party, the event is synonymous with fun and creativityalongside some seriously technical projects that push the boundaries of innovation.

On September 10th and 11th, DIY YouTubers will meet again at the eighth Maker Faire  in the HCC and provide insights into their maker world. A number of cosplayers have also arranged to meet at the festival to present their colourful, elaborately made costumes there. The various light artists have brought luminous exhibits with them, with which they want to enchant the visitors of the Dark Gallery.

Maker Faire – that means touching, trying out, learning from one another and networking: the range of around 1000 exhibiting makers is also diverse in the eighth edition of the Maker Faire. 

YouTubers from the DIY/craft genre  are guests for the fourth time  . The well-known maker  Laura Kampf has announced that  she will take  part in the  panel talks on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and on Sunday at 12:10 p.m.  together with ” HABU ” ,  Felix Schelhasse ,  Franks Shed ,  Jonas Winkler and  Karoline Hinz. In addition, the YouTubers Pero Cetkovic aka  Der Compressor Screwdriver  and Marcel from  Bau Boom Bang  as well as Ellen Brilhuis-Meijer from  Crafts with Ellen  will be showing their works and offering hands-on activities.

They are called  Babyroods ,  Karamelori ,  Anxietea.exe  or  weeiiird.cos  and love to bring fictional characters into reality through their cosplays, presenting their  unusual costume ideas and to talk about  their role models from anime, manga or video games  .
