Vocaloid 2: Kagamine Rin 28

vocaloid 2 cosplay - kagamine rin by onnies

街明かり 華やか
City lights bright and colorful
エーテル麻酔 の 冷たさ
The chill of ether anesthetics
眠れない 午前二時
Sleepless at 2:00 AM
全てが 急速に変わる
Everything rapidly changes

オイル切れのライター
A lighter out of oil
焼けつくような胃の中
The inside of a scorching stomach
全てがそう嘘なら
If everything was yes, a lie
本当に よかったのにね
How it would have been really nice

“Nuclear Meltdown”
Lyrics and Translation by Vocaloid Lyrics

Original: Wood Splitter Lee and “Willow”

This is not your usual cosplay feature, but this video might inspire many cosplayers out there! It’s a fantastic idea of bring creatures to life instead of the usual stuff toys we bring around! But please take a closer look, as this hand-made puppet’s eyes blink, giving it a variety of expressions!

Please support the artist, Wood Splitter Lee through her Deviant Art, Facebook, and Youtube! Thanks to Misha for sending this in!

Anyway, I apologize if I don’t have any more information on Yumi, but if you’d like, you can visit her official blog to know more about her! Thanks to Erica for sending this in!

Fruits Basket: Kuramae Mine

fruits basket cosplay - kuramae mine by tamaki okazakiMine (pronounced as “mee-neh”) is a seamstress who works in Sohma Ayame’s costume shop and lives in the apartment above it. She is a cheerful girl who is extremely passionate about costuming. She also appears to be determined to do anything for Ayame, and often takes care of the details he neglects in his enthusiasm. Ayame and Mine appear to be close to one another as he describes her to be someone he “can confide in”, leading Yuki to believe that she is aware of the zodiac curse.

I heard there will be a new Fruits Basket series soon. Whether it’s an anime or manga, I’m not completely sure, but I am extremely excited nonetheless!

Touken Ranbu: Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

touken ranbu cosplay - shokudaikiri mitsutada by mina maruI’m Shokudaikiri Mitsutada. I’m a katana that was once used by Lord Date Masamune.

I don’t harbor any bad feelings towards Lord Masamune, but my name comes from a time when I killed someone and happened to cut a candlestick that was nearby at the same time... Although it really was a bronze candlestick holder, it would’ve been cooler if it had been something a bit more durable.

Tokyo Ghoul: Suzuya Juuzou

tokyo ghoul cosplay - suzuya juuzou by hinaPreviously known as Suzuya Rei, Suzuya Juuzou is a Special Class Ghoul Investigator who feels no pain nor fear. His lack of emotional understanding and fearlessness allows him confront any opponent head on, no matter how dangerous they are. However, this results in reckless behavior, as he even confronted Yoshimura alone when cooperation was necessary in taking him out.

What do you guys think of Hina’s cosplay? I’m really impressed how she captured the crazy innocence of Suzuya in this photo! Please continue to support her through her Archive and Twitter! Thanks to Adam for sending this in!

Sailor Stars: Sailor Star Healer

sailor stars cosplay - sailor star healer by ha cainAlthough Yaten Kou is lonely at times, she does not like to socialize with humans as she believes they are untrustworthy. She prefers to focus on the mission to find Princess Kakyuu and leave the Earth as soon as possible. Perhaps it is because of this that she is blunt and sharp-tongued, even antagonizing Kaioh Michiru for her choice of lipstick.

Meet Korean cosplayer Ha Cain! Doesn’t she make a lovely Sailor Star Healer? If you like this photo, please do support her through her World Cosplay account! Thanks to Alan for sending this in!

Vocaloid 2: Utatane Piko

vocaloid 2 cosplay - utatane piko by towa大体 君は そうやって  逃げ回って どっか隠れて
Anyway, you run away and hide yourself somewhere like that
だから言うよ 素直な君の  リアルな感情 見せてくれないか
So, I’ll say it. Won't you be honest and show your real feelings?

誰かに 合わせてますか 人生観  迷彩な 笑顔は
Do you change your philosophy of life to go along with someone?
肝心なパーツが  欠けていた
The camouflage smile lacked the necessary part
黒にも成れない 白にも成れない
You can’t even be black, you can’t even be white
知ってたさ 怖がってた
I knew that. You were scared.

コトバガ アフレ
WORDS OVERFLOW
イマ ホンネヲ カイジョ
I’LL RELEASE THE TRUE FEELINGS
震える手を伸ばした先の心音を高めて
Make the sound of heartbeat at the place beyond the stretched shaking hand faster

“The First War Against Myself”
Lyrics and Translation by Vocaloid Lyrics

Tsubasa - Reservoir Chronicle: Syaoran and Sakura 04

tsubasa resevoir chronicle cosplay - syaoran by ghost shend and sakura by hu sebai

Far in the light, I can see it
In every scene of the night
A tiny feather of love

I gotta go
Destiny never finds the way for me, my love

Even in the night I see your face, in the dark
So I never lose my way to you
I never close my heart
The light is always there

Time goes by, we can never stay the same
Now we've come so far from love memory
Though your smile has gone, we will never be apart
In our hearts we are one, for love melody
The future arrives with your love

“Tsubasa”
Lyrics by Anime Lyrics

Ok, this series has officially confused me. There’s a clone Sakura, and there’s a real Sakura, just as there’s a clone Syaoran and a real Syaoran. How to tell if the cosplay is of one or the other? I have no idea, but I hope someone could tell me!

I do know this cosplay by Ghost Sheng (鬼笙) and Hu Sebai (狐色白) looks fantastic, am I right? So please continue to support them! Thanks to Omi for sending this in!
