ALODIA Gosiengfiao shot to fame as a cosplayer, and so it feels like a full-circle moment to hear that Tier One Entertainment — the esports organization that she co-founded — has signed up three international cosplayers as their first talents for 2022.

“Having world-renowned cosplayers as colleagues means a lot to me, and is a big breakthrough for Tier One Entertainment,” said Gosiengfiao, who is also Tier One’s chief creative officer.

Their three new talents hail from all corners of the globe: Knite from Greece, Hakken from Malaysia, and Shunsuke from Switzerland.

“Some may wonder why we have chosen to suddenly pivot away from our usual gamer-centric signings. The long answer is that Knite, Shunsuke, and Hakken are professional models and cosplayers of the utmost quality,” said Tier One in a statement.
