Another: Misaki Mei 02

another cosplay - misaki mei 2

Initially non-sociable and solitary, Misaki Mei is a quiet girl who appears to dislike having students around her. She even told Sakakibara Kouichi to stay away from her, but as time passed, she became accustomed to his presence and eventually befriended him. She does warn him, however, to be careful since the “curse” may have already begun.

I still found the movie to be somewhat unsettling, but I would like to watch it again when I have time. Thanks to Jessie for sending this in!

Hakuoki ~Shinsengumi Kitan~: Hijikata Toshizo 03

hakuoki / hakuouki: shinsengumi kitan cosplay - hijikata toshizo by butterfly

Although feared for being a strict disciplinarian, Hijikata believes that it is his duty to rule with an iron fist as the shadow behind Kondou’s light. He is thoughtful, mature, and takes the Shinsengumi’s welfare to be his personal responsibility. Hijikata can also be described as prideful, as he dislikes accepting help from others believing it makes him appear weak. He does, however, place the survival of the Shinsengumi above honor.

Shingeki no Kyojin Live Action Trailer

What we have here is our first look at the 3D Maneuver Gear for the live action movie of Shingeki no Kyojin. I am cautiously optimistic? But at the same time, I’m not entirely sure that those effects will be convincing enough once it hits theaters.

I initially thought it was Eren kissing Mikasa in 1:28, but it looks like they’re the new characters that were created for this film! Good thing too, because I always viewed Eren and Mikasa as siblings!

Anyway, I’m holding off any and all judgment from this film until I actually see it in a month or two. I’m completely excited, and my Survey Corps jacket is ready and waiting!

Tokyo Ghoul: Kirishima Toka

tokyo ghoul cosplay - kirishima toka by felin firn

Kirishima Toka is an eighteen-year-old ghoul from the 20th ward who works as a part-time waitress in Anteiku. She blends in well enough with the human society to attend high school inconspicuously. She is the older sister of Ayato, who disagrees with her views on humanity and left her to join Aogiri.

Oh wow, those “wings” look amazing! I’ve always wondered about these Tokyo Ghoul cosplayers. I mean, do they use large contact lenses to make their eyes black, or is that edited later on?

Anyway, if you like Thai cosplayer, Felin Firn’s work, please do show her your support through her Facebook, Twitter, and World Cosplay accounts! Thanks to Charlie for sending this in!

Diabolik Lovers: Sakamaki Ayato 02

diabolik lovers cosplay - sakamaki ayato 2Although he is one of triplets, Ayato is well-known to be the troublemaker of the household. He is an attention-seeker who loves mischief, and he looks down upon others. He also loves to brag, referring to himself as Ore-sama (Yours Truly) and commanding everyone to call him Ayato-sama.

I bet a lot of fangirls would love to trade places with that rose, hehe! I wish I could look that intense in a photo. Thanks to Rianne for sending this in!

Vocaloid 2: Kagamine Len 28

vocaloid 2 cosplay - kagamine len by akupo君は王女 僕は召使
You’re the queen, I’m your servant.
運命分かつ 哀れな双子
We’re a pitiable pair of twins separated by our fate.
君を守る その為ならば
I’m willing to become evil for you,
僕は悪にだってなってやる
if only so that I could protect you.

期待の中僕らは生まれた
We were born into the world carrying others’ expectations,
祝福するは教会の鐘
and blessed by the sound of the church’s bells.
大人たちの勝手な都合で
By the adults’ own convenient arrangement,
僕らの未来は二つに裂けた
our future was split into two.

たとえ世界の全てが
Even if the entire world
君の敵になろうとも
should become your enemy,
僕が君を守るから
I will always protect you,
君はそこで笑っていて
so you just be yourself and smile.

“Servant of Evil”
“His Significance of Existence”
Lyrics and Translation by Vocaloid Lyrics

Shyo Akupo is glaring rather intensely, no? He is one of the few male cosplayers that I’ve seen to pull Kagamine Len off so flawlessly! Please do visit his Facebook, Twitter, and World Cosplay and give him your support! Thanks again to Shuichi for sending this in!

Suki-tte Ii na yo: Kurosawa Yamato and Tachibana Mei 02

sukitte ii na yo cosplay - kurosawa yamato and tachibana mei 2

When Mei was still a child, she tried her best to be sociable and friendly towards her classmates, but they still isolated her for some reason. When her class raised a rabbit together, Misa blamed Mei that she forced the rabbit to eat some strange grass, even though it was actually Misa’s fault that the rabbit had died. The teacher believed Misa and punished Mei for something she had nothing to do with. As a result, Mei began to believe that everyone was like Misa, and she began avoiding people all together.

“People betray each other all the time and at school, it’s just a bunch of idiots who need someone to bully. I don't want to hang out with that kind of people. So I don’t need friends.”

That's kind of sad, isn’t it? And for that to happen to a young child, Mei would definitely have emotional scars, but I hope Yamato would be able to help her overcome her fears. Thanks to Taylor for sending this in!

D. Gray-man: Allen Walker 08

d. gray-man cosplay - allen walker by kipi

Kind, generous, and very polite, Allen Walker has a tendency to sacrifice himself for the sake of others. More often than not, he is willing to let his body and emotions take devastating blows if it will help or save someone else. However, this trait has angered several of his comrades and friends, especially Kanda Yu and Lenalee Lee.

I haven’t seen a lot of Kipi cosplaying male characters before, so this one came as a pleasant surprise! I think most of her fans would prefer her cosplaying female characters, but I think this is a good side of her too! Thanks to Darren for sending this in!

Fisheye Placebo: Frey 02

fisheye placebo cosplay - frey by maiq en (shien7aries)

Frey is shown to be a rather intelligent individual. He appears to have a manipulative side to him shown when he toys with Vance during their internet chat when he pretended to be Robin, and again when he confronts Vance as an agent. Frey is cunning, observant, and appears to hold philosophical standpoints, shown during the conversation when he calls Vance a "Man in sheep's clothing."

Don’t you think this photo of Maiq En (shien7aries) is just absolutely breathtaking? I’m not sure if those lights are effects added in editing or actual running vehicles! Can you guess where she’s from based on the background? Thanks to Maika for sending this in!

Tokyo Ghoul: Yoshimura

tokyo ghoul cosplay - yoshimura by yomi

Yoshimura is the manager of Anteiku. He is a kind and reasonable ghoul who provides aid and food to ghouls who are incapable of hunting on their own. He took Kaneki in after he became a half-ghoul and taught him how he could blend in with humans by controlling his ghoul nature.

Wow, that is just amazing make up work right there! If you go to Yomi’s World Cosplay Gallery, you will notice that he’s not really as old as he looks here! Please do support him through his World Cosplay account! Thanks to Seth for suggesting this!

Sailor Stars: Seiya Kou

sailor stars cosplay - seiya kou by asukaThe leader of the Sailor Starlights, Seiya Kou is the lead vocalist of the pop star group, the Three Lights. Seiya tends to act arrogantly and appears to be confident in her own abilities. When she enters a local high school, Seiya becomes the school’s star athlete in American football, upsetting Tenoh Haruka as she was the previous star (in track and field). She developed feelings for Usagi, but eventually regarded them to be unrequited love.

You might remember Korean cosplayer Asuka from a previous post in 2014. Doesn’t she look amazing as Seiya? You might want to visit her websites on Tumblr, Twitter, and World Cosplay for more of her works! Thanks again to Lara for sending this in!
