Sailor Moon: Sailor Mars 04

Need another idea for our contest? Here’s one of the classics!

Deep within yourself
When suddenly a strange thirst builds up in you
Your heart becomes gentler
And you begin to love somebody

With no fear of danger
Don’t ever give up on yourself!
Shoot a burning arrow
A red flash fills the air!

FLAME SNIPER Seal away my fiery heart deep inside my arrow
FLAME SNIPER Choose the shot so the prey I seek has no chance of escape
FLAME SNIPER Take control of my burning heart; get a hold of myself
FLAME SNIPER Get ready! Hurry, make your choice, ‘cause my target now is you

“Flame Sniper”
Lyrics Translation by
Anime Lyrics

Doesn’t she such a pretty Sailor Mars? Hopefully, someone will recognize her so that I can give proper credit and such! Thanks to Seth for sending this in!

Gundam Seed: Lacus Clyne 04

Need another idea for our Giveaway?

gundam seed cosplay - lacus clyne by astellecia

Beneath the veil of starry sky
As cold as winter’s darkest night
It’s there you’ll sleep, silent and deep
You’re all alone

A single prayer’s soft melody
Across the lonely silent fields
A little light begins to shine, it shines on and on

I watched you as you so peacefully dreamed
You laughed like a child, happy and care free
It’s so familiar and yet so far
That’s the future is promised for you and me

One day on a green and shining morn
One day we will finally make through
Cause in this sky, so dark with winter
We still have to believe that it’s true
Fields of hope

“Fields of Hope” (English Dub)
Lyrics by Anime Lyrics

You might recognize the cosplayer for today’s feature! She is Astellecia, whose cosplay was featured for the 2011 Charity Cosplay Calendar! If you like her work, be sure to support her on Deviant Art! Thanks to Lara for sending this in!

D. Gray-man: Lenalee Lee 05

Here’s another character idea for you guys, and the anime is making a comeback too!

d. gray-man cosplay - lenalee lee by might

Lenalee’s anti-Akuma weapon, known as the Dark Boots, enable her to run at high speeds, jump great heights, walk on water, create whirlwinds, and use sound wares as footholds. At one point, Lenalee had an encounter with a Level 3 Akuma, which forced her to evoke more power than she could handle. With her life in danger, her Innocence became a crystal, protecting Lenalee from harm. This behavior was previously unheard of in Innocence.

Introducing Japanese cosplayer, Might (舞斗)! I love her action shot of Lenalee! It looks like she was caught mid air by a high speed camera!

Please support Might through her Archive page, and remember to join our Giveaway! Thanks to Arianna for sending this in!

Vampire Knight: Kiryuu Zero 11

vampire knight cosplay - kiryuu zero 11Just in case people are having a hard time deciding which character to use those purple contact lenses for, here is one suggestion!

Burning in red, in red, in red
Erasing everything, everything
An unfulfilled illusion begins to move
Strongly, strongly
Overcoming, overcoming, overcoming the fleeting night
逃れられない 罪に溺れても きっと
I certainly can't escape, even if I drown in my sins

“Futatsu no Kodou to Akai Tsumi”
Lyrics and Translation by Anime Lyrics

That’s right! Zero and his twin, Ichiru, both have purple eyes! But he is only one character of so many different possibilities! If you have a favorite purple eyed character, feel free to suggest in the comments below! Thanks to Maria Gabriella for sharing this!

Rurouni Kenshin: Shishio Makoto

rurouni kenshin movie (cosplay) - shishio makotoCan we all just please take a moment to appreciate Shishio’s reaction in this picture? Yes?

Alright, from what I understand in the description, this is not Fujiwara Tatsuya, who plays the role of Shishio in the film, but Takito Kenichi? I did find his profile in (Japanese) wiki, and he does play a role in Rurouni Kenshin, but I’m not exactly sure since my Japanese is not very good. And what’s with the photo in his kimono?

Anyhow, if anyone can clarify, that would be great! Thanks to Rae for sending this in!

xxxHolic: Ichihara Yuuko 05

xxxholic cosplay - ichihara yuuko by izumi 和泉

Although Yuuko has the ability to predict the future, she often visits a fortuneteller whom she lovingly refers to as “Oba-chan”. Once, when Watanuki accompanied her, Yuuko explained that one cannot predict their own future of else there will be chaos. Nevertheless, Oba-chan is one of Yuuko’s oldest friends and is the only one in the entire series to call Yuuko “Yuuko-chan”.

Isn’t IZUMI (和泉) absolutely gorgeous? I know I’m now a huge fan of hers since she cosplayed one of my favorite characters so perfectly! If you’d like to see more of her work, please support her though Archive, Cloud, Cure, and World Cosplay! Thanks to Jai for sending this in!

Inuyasha: Rin and Sesshoumaru 03

inuyasha cosplay - rin by chara and sesshoumaru by momoren“Diamond!”

Across the endless sky the clouds float playfully
Wandering eternally to get rid of a recurring dream

Until the moment the rain ends
I can sleep peacefully

So many times, yes, no matter how often

Lyrics and Translation by

Aren’t they cute? I really love Momoren’s cosplay of Sesshoumaru, and Chara looks really cute as Rin too! Don’t you just love how they posed for this photo?

Kin’iro no Corda II: Yunoki Azuma

kin'iro no corda / la corda d'oro cosplay - yunoki azuma by ayatouch

君が知りたいと願うなら 薔薇の下においで
If you wish to know, come under the roses
金の調べたどり行けたなら 迷わずに僕に逢えるから
If you can finally reach the golden melody you sought without losing your way,
you can meet me

Fake 長い回廊に Face 愁い囚われて
Fake… Within the long corridor… Face… Trapped within the gloom…
焦がれてた自由な日々 あきらめていた希望
I had given up hope on the days of freedom I’d longed for

叶えたい夢を見つけたら パンドラの箱を開こう
If I find a dream I want to come true, I’ll open Pandora’s box
何が遭っても どんな未来でも
No matter what happens, whatever the future holds,
そうさきっとそこに 君はいる
That’s right, surely you’ll be there

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso: Miyazono Kaori and Arima Kosei

shigatsu wa kimi no uso / your lie in april cosplay - miyazono kaori by ritsu and arima kosei by mikado

雨上がりの虹も 凛と咲いた花も 色づき溢れ出す
A rainbow after rain, and a flower that bloomed with the cold, are abundantly changing colors.
茜色の空 仰ぐ君に あの日 恋に落ちた
That day, I fell in love with you who looked up at the blazing red sky

That one instant in a scene of the dramatic film
消えないよ 心に刻むから
Won’t disappear, because it's etched into my heart

君だよ 君なんだよ 教えてくれた
It’s you, you who taught me.
暗闇も光るなら 星空になる
If the darkness shines too, then it’ll become a night of stars.
悲しみを笑顔に もう隠さないで
Don’t hide your sadness behind a laughing face anymore
煌めくどんな星も 君を照らすから
Because all the twinkling stars will shine on you

Another amazing cosplay by Mikado as Kosei along with Ritsu as Kaori! I heard a lot of good things about this series, and I’ve been seeing lots of fan art from it too! Maybe it’s about time I check this series out. Thanks to Kathy for sharing this!

Zootopia: Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde 02

zootopia cosplay - judy hopps by mon and nick wilde by stayxxxxAlthough she was assigning to parking duty by Chief Bogo, Judy abandoned her shift in order to arrest Duke Weaselton, a thief who stole what appeared to be onion bulbs. Because of this, Judy was once again reprimanded by Bogo.

Mrs. Otterton then arrived in Bogo’s office, pleading for someone to find her missing husband and Judy immediately volunteered! Bogo reluctantly agreed, giving Judy 48 hours on the condition that she resigns if she fails this assignment.

Hitori left me a comment saying that Stay cosplayed Nick Wilde. I actually found this photo some time ago, but well, Internet problems and all that, you know?

As always, please support stayxxxx and Mon夢 through their respective Facebook pages! Thanks again to Hitori for sending this in!
