Final Fantasy XIII-2: Lightning 03

final fantasy xiii-2 cosplay - lightning 03

In Final Fantasy XIII-2, it is revealed through the Arbiter of Time that this Lightning is only an exact copy of the actual Lightning that lacks a soul. She can learn all of the elemental spells just like her original counterpart, and has improved tiers in Thunder spells. One other significant difference is that this Lightning can cast Curasa and Curaja as a Medic, while the original Lightning could not.

Doesn’t she look beautiful? Just like the character herself! If anyone happens to know who the cosplayer is, please do let me know so that I can credit her! Thanks to Tricia for sending this in!

Sailor Moon: Tsukino Usagi 02


Most of you have probably seen this commercial already, but I thought I’d feature it anyway since Usagi is so cute here! Just look at that adorable grin!

I’m not really sure if she’s officially cosplaying Usagi or not though! The second person to drink the green tea also looks like Ryu from Street Fighter to me, but I’m even more uncertain about that!

Have a look at the Kit Kat Green Tea commercial and please let me know what you think!

Spirited Away: No-Face and Ogino Chihiro (Sen)

spirited away cats cosplay - no-face and ogino chihiro / senForced to work in the tyranical Yubaba’s bathhouse, Ogino Chihiro invited a silent, masked creature named No-Face inside the bathhouse, thinking he was a customer. Later that evening, while most of the staff were asleep, No-Face tempted a worker with gold. The greedy staff took the bait, only to be devoured by No-Face! He continued swallowing the other naive workers and began growing larger, causing massive damage to the bathhouse.

This photo reminded me of the time I featured a dog cosplaying Sesshoumaru! I guess cat owners are getting into it now too? I find the Chihiro cat to be particularly adorable with that kimono! Thanks to Casey for sending this in!

Fushigi Yuugi: Amiboshi

fushigi yuugi shu no shou cosplay - amiboshi by hattori tsubasaThe elder twin of Suboshi, Amiboshi is a Seiryuu Celestial warrior born under the star “Neck (亢)”. He is able to emit chi through his mouth and uses the flute to control others. Amiboshi holds the instrument to the left when he is using his powers, and to the right when he is simply playing.

Under Nakago’s orders, Amiboshi impersonated Chiriko and grew close to Miaka and the other Suzaku warriors. He almost succeeded in killing the Suzaku warriors during their attempt to summon Suzaku, but the real Chiriko appeared and saved everyone. Amiboshi tried to escape, but Miaka wanted to save him, claiming that anyone who plays such beautiful music cannot be evil. He later fell into the river and was presumed dead.

I thought I recognized this stage actor! He is Hattori Tsubasa, who played Shikimaru Nara in the Naruto Musical! He is still as handsome as ever, and definitely suits the role of Amiboshi!

For the fans who saw Shu no Shou, how was it? Was it loyal to the original manga? Did you have a favorite character?

Fate/Grand Order: Ruler 02

fate/grand order cosplay - ruler by rithRuler is a taciturn and cool while acting as a Servant, but is naturally a plain and quiet 16-year-old. She puts order first, but she is willing to wield a sword for the sake of the rules.

In Fate/Apocrypha, due to the irregularity of the Great Holy Grail War, and the continued existence of the previous Ruler from the Third Holy Grail War, Ruler was not given a spiritual body, and instead possessed a human girl named Laeticia. Because of her faith, Laeticia accepts Ruler completely, and thus, they do not share two personalities in one body, but rather, their personalities have merged into one.

Isn’t Rith absolutely beautiful? It looks like Ruler has a “Lily” version like Saber too! I actually like her original look better, but this is also very beautiful!
If you like this photo, please support the cosplayer and her photographer in Facebook! Thanks to Lee for sending this in!

The son of the Sagihara family, direct vassal of the Fushimi feudal clan in the Yamashiro Province. The Sagihara family is a descendant of Amakuni, a group of blacksmiths that was formed back in the Heian period. They were also guardians who protected the Five Heavenly Swords in the past. After his family was killed, he threw away his status and came to Edo. While he might look like an inexperienced young master, he knows how to get on in the world due to his vagabond journey.

Such a lovely photo! Zixell is quickly becoming one of my favorite cosplayers! Her expression looks so serene. I wonder if those “fireflies” were added after the photo was taken, or if they sprinkled silver dust during the photo shoot?

In any case, please do support Zixell via her Archive, Facebook, Twitter, and World Cosplay! Thanks again to Hitori for sending this in!

Final Fantasy XV: Prompto Argentum and Noctic Lucis Caelum

final fantasy xv cosplay - prompto argentum and noctis lucis caelum
The puckish playboy Prompto befriended Noctis in his school days. He wears a chip on his shoulder as an outsider to the royal circle, but remains eager to do all he can for the cause. A friend who has been a bad influence to Noctis since his school days. While he can get carried away easily, there's another side of him which is driven to help friends in need. 
I know they are probably models for the Roen clothing line, but wow, Prompto looks amazing! I think many of the fans are disappointed with Noctis’ hair being blue, but he looks fantastic as well! Hopefully, we’ll get better shots of these “cosplayers” soon? Thanks to Chia for sending this in!

Yu Yu Hakusho: Team Toguro

yu yu hakusho cosplay - karasu, toguro-otouto, toguro-ani, and bui

Team Toguro consists of the “human turned demon” Toguro siblings and two demons, Karasu and Bui. Karasu and Bui both lost to the Toguro brothers in battle and subsequently joined their team for the Dark Tournament. Toguro-otouto (Younger Toguro) is rated as a B-class, absolute strength demon, while is brother, Toguro-ani (Elder Toguro) is a demon shape shifter. As for Karasu, he is a “Governor-rank” demon who can create bombs using his aura undetectable by lower level demons. Last but not least, Bui is a demon warrior who has a battle aura so immense that we wears heavy armor to suppress it.

Nothing beats a classic, and this team of cosplayers definitely did a great job portraying the antagonists of this series! If anyone happens to know who the cosplayers are, please let me know so I can credit them! Thanks to Rey for sending this in!

World Canvas: Sera Asprec

world canvas cosplay - sera asprec by mayu ma cherieSera Asrec is an art student with heterochromia iridum, or different colored eyes. As a matter of fact, her left eyes gives her the ability to look into a person’s past and retrieve their darkest secrets by observing their artworks or their handwriting. This ability is very helpful for her brother’s work at the museum as Sera can give him unique information about deceased famous artists. However, this ability also made Sera distant from the people around her.

One day, she met child prodigy, Rhiannon Estrella, and realized that she could not read any information from her at all! It was the first time Sera’s ability failed to work, which made Sera even more curious to know who Rhiannon really was! What sort of secret could a young girl be guarding so securely?

Many of you might not be familiar with this character as World Canvas is a local manga published in the Philippines. Mayu Ma Cherie cosplayed Sera so well that I couldn’t resist featuring her!

If you’d like to see more of Mayu’s cosplays, please visit her on Facebook and support her! On the other hand, if you want to know more about the series, please visit the mangaka’s Facebook, Color-LES aka Godley Malabanan! Thanks again to Mayu for letting me feature this!

Dead or Alive: Ayane 05

dead or alive cosplay - ayane by rainer tachibanaAlthough she appears to be cruel, Ayane is not completely heartless. She has working relationships with a few people and even emotional attachments to Hayate and Genra. However, she might be a little too attached to them to the point that she regards them to be her only reason for living. When Genra passed away and Hayate became angry with her, she tried to commit suicide, evidence of Ayane’s emotional instability.

Do you guys recognize this cosplayer? I’ve featured her before cosplaying the same character in a differnt outfit. Her name is Rainer Tachibana and she now has a Facebook page, so please continue to support her as always! Thanks to Janice for sending this in!

Fate/Stay Night: Saber 18

fate/stay night cosplay - saber 18記憶の波間に浮かんでる横顔
The side of face, floating between the waves of memory, 伸ばした指からこぼれ
Spill through the extended fingers. 陽炎の向こう揺らめいた景色は
The scene seen through rising heat, wavering, 幻としても愛しいもの
is a illusious yet lovely thing.

涙の意味さえ解らずにいたこと
Understanding not even the meaning of tear 幸せと言えた不幸
Is a misfortune called “happiness”. 言葉にできない切なさのカケラが
The fragments of pain, which cannot be expressed in words, 瞳にあふれてく
Overflow in the eyes.

“My Dream”
Lyrics by Anime Lyrics
Translation by Mirror Moon

Isn’t she beautiful? I really love the pose, and the intensity in the cosplayer’s eyes! Although it looks like she’s in construction site? There are a lot of hollow blocks in the background!

Anyway, if anyone knows who the cosplayer is, please let me know! Thanks to Olivia for sending this in!
