Starry Sky: Shiranui Kazuki (Aries)

starry sky cosplay - shiranui kazuki (aries) by umiya96The representation of Aries, Shiranui Kazuki is the arrogant Student Council President of Seigetsu who has the ability of foresight. Despite being hot-headed, he is extremely charismatic and is seen as the fatherly figure by the rest of the student council. Kazuki recruited Yahisa Tsukiko, Aozora Hayato, and Amaha Tsubasa as fellow student council member after foreseeing the happy future they would have together.

Hongkonger Umiya Kuro (海弥黒)’s cosplay of Kazuki is quite amazing, wouldn’t you agree? Please do give him your support through Facebook, Weibo, and World Cosplay! Thanks again to Florentine for sending this in!

Naruto: Yakushi Kabuto

naruto cosplay - yakushi kabuto by kimura tatsunari

A nukenin or “runaway shinobi”, Yakushi Kabuto was orphaned by war and taken in by an orphanage in Konohagakure. As he was suffering from amnesia, Kabuto is not his real name, but a nickname given to him by Yakushi Nono, the nun who found him. He was pressured into becoming a shinobi by Shimura Danzo, who demanded an orphan from Nono in exchange for funding. Kabuto thus became a spy for the village, assuming many identities which left him unsure of who he truly was.

Doesn’t Kimura Tatsumari look amazing as Kabuto? I’m beginning to wish I could see this stage play for myself, even though I’ve never read or watched Naruto before. Please check out the full cast on the official Naruto Stage website!

Card Captor Sakura: Li Syaoran 04

card captor sakura cosplay - li syaoran 4Li Syaoran was initially attracted to Tsukishiro Yukito, feelings which he mistakenly thought of to be love. It was later revealed that this infatuation was due to the high moon power inside Yukito, as he was actually the temporary form of Yue, the judge who was allowed to test the next Clow Card Master for his or her worthiness. After the Erase card’s capture however, Syaoran began to develop feelings for Sakura instead.

What a cute Syaoran! I wasn’t much of a CCS fan back when it was airing in local channels here, but I changed my mind right around the time I received a deck of Clow Cards of my own. Thanks to Michelle for sharing this!

Sword Art Online: Alfheim Online: Sinon 02

In Alfheim Online, Sinon’s cool and collected attitude has gained her a lot of female admirers in their party. She became good friends with Kirito, despite their constant bickering and teasing with one another. Sinon also appears to be one of the few girls Yui gets along with, even though she is close to Kirito.

This photo looks absolutely amazing! Sinon looks like she is a force to be reckoned with in this photo! Thanks to Williams BlackRay for sharing this!

Vocaloid 2: Kaito and Hatsune Miku 03

vocaloid 2 cosplay - kaito by kaname and hatsune miku by saya

もし あの頃と同じように
わたしが 空き地で泣いていたなら
If I cry on the empty lot like I used to
また あの時と同じように
あなたは 守ってくれるのかしら
Will you solace me like you used to?

あの頃は 何もあまり考えず
In those days I vaguely believed
あなたのお嫁さんになると 思ってた
I would be your bride

まだ これからも同じように
As usual, let me walk with you
歩いて ゆこうね
Holding each other’s hands
手をつないで どこまでも
To the end of the world

“Just Like We Used to Be”
Lyrics by Vocaloid Lyrics | Translation by Vocaloid English

I still can’t believe Saya is gone… it makes me sad whenever I remember this, but I’m very happy that there are still many photos of her around. Many thanks to Saya’s fans who maintain her Fan Site!

Diabolik Lovers: Sakamaki Ayato

diabolik lovers cosplay -sakamaki ayato by heyleydiaAn attention seeker and troublemaker, Sakamaki Ayato is the oldest of triplets, Shu and Reiji. He and Shu were brought up to always strive to be the best, but Ayato never received any form of love from his mother. In fact, he was abused by his mother and was told that he had to be the best or else she would not acknowledge him as her son. As a result, Ayato grew up self-centered, overconfident, and haughty.

A lovely, almost hypnotic cosplay by Heyleydia! I mean seriously, I know she’s a girl, but she can definitely pull off being a sexy vampire!

Please support her thru Facebook and World Cosplay! Thanks to Anime Plus for sharing this!

Starry Sky: Hoshizuki Kotarou (Libra)

starry sky cosplay - hoshizuki kotarou (libra) by NAO

The representation of Libra, Hoshizuki Kotarou is the klutzy school nurse who once had ambitions of becoming a doctor. He always appears to be very sleepy and somewhat irresponsible as he is often absent from the nurse’s office when he’s needed. Kotarou was raised alongside Mizushima Iku and his twin sister Yui, and they continue to maintain a strong, sibling-like bond.

Taiwanese cosplayer NAO (ナオ直) looks fantastic as Kotarou! Please be sure to give her your support through World Cosplay and Facebook. Thanks to Florentine for sending this in!

kuroshitsuji - ciel in wonderland cosplay - ciel phantomhive and sebastian michaelis

In a special OVA of Kuroshitsuji, Ciel Phantomhive stumbles into the world of Alice in Wonderland, a story written by Lewis Caroll. The OVA begins with Ciel doing paperwork in his mansion when he notices Sebastian having a white bunny tail and two rabbit ears. Ciel chased after Sebastian who, similar to the White Rabbit, held up his pocket watch stating that he was late. Ciel continued to follow Sebastian down the corridor until he came upon a room and fell into a colorful place filled with many doors.

Isn’t this just too adorable for words? Ciel’s Chibi cosplayer looks quite pleased with her butler! Thanks to Anime Sensei for sharing this!

Naruto: Inuzuka Kiba

naruto cosplay - inuzuka kiba by iiyama yuta

Impulsive, brash, and somewhat short-tempered, Inuzuka Kiba has a taste for combat even when he is facing opponents who are much stronger than him. This could also be considered as his handicap, however, as he is prone to making mistakes whenever he is agitated. Nevertheless, he is fiercely loyal and protective, and is an important team mate of Aburame Shino’s and Hyuga Hinata’s in Team Kurenai.

Iiyama Yuta makes an incredible Kiba, wouldn’t you agree? And it looks like he’s having a lot of fun with this character too! Thanks again to Kotaku for sharing this!

Gintama: Hijikata Toushirou 02

gintama cosplay - hijikata toushirou by xilou76

“I just wanted the woman I love to be happy, that’s all.”

- Gintama Wiki

The son of a rich farmer and his mistress, Toushirou had always been considered an outsider by his family, save for his brother, Hijikata Tamegoro, who welcomed Toushirou into his home with open arms. When he was only 11, the Hijikata household was attacked by bandits during a large village fire. Tamegoro protected his brother, but unfortunately, he ended up losing his eyes. Driven by rage, Toushirou unconsciously attacked the bandits, injuring their eyes the same way they did to Tamegoro. Toushirou’s other siblings witnessed the incident and ostracized Toushirou, calling him “Thorny Toshi”, forcing Toushirou to leave his home and become a ronin.

Cosplayer Xi Lou 76 makes quite an impressive Toushirou, wouldn’t you agree? Please visit his Facebook page for more of his work and support him! Thanks again to Aerie for sending this in!

Tokyo Ghoul: Kirishima Ayato

tokyo ghoul cosplay - kirishima ayato by haltAn arrogant teenager in his own right, Kirishima Ayato is the younger brother of Kirishima Touka, who goes by the alias “Black Rabbit”. He and his sister share many similarities, including their short tempers and their tendencies to use foul language which could often be considered as inappropriate. Ayato firmly believes in the notion that “the weak perish and the strong survive”, a survival instinct triggered by the death of his parents.

Japanese cosplayer Halt cosplays Ayato very well, wouldn’t you agree? I’ll be watching this series as soon as I finish my deadlines just so I can finally have an idea what people are raving about. As usual, please support the cosplayer by visiting her sites: Archive, Cure, Twitter, and World Cosplay! Thanks to Anime for sharing this!

大人はもう寝る時間よ
