At home in her basement, Kelly fashions costumes of her favourite computer game heroes. This is called cosplay, and Kelly is a passionate cosplayer. She wants to live her dream, turn her passion into a career. With her first costume - the barbarian from the computer game Diablo 3 - she has made a name for herself in the scene. She’s the first Luxembourger to win the award for best costume at the Gamescon Convention in Cologne.
A new costume is in the making and, for the second time, Kelly stands in front of the international jury in Cologne. Her mum believes in her and supports her as best she can. But can Kelly convince a second time, and how will her dream of making it big continue?
