Gundam 00: Revive Revival

gundam 00 cosplay - revive revivalThe genetic twin of Anew Returner, Revive is an innovator who pilots the Gadessa. He joins the A-Laws and agrees to follow Kati Mannequin's battle strategies even though he was a special licence that allows him to act independently. He and Anew were suppose to steal the 00 Gundam and the 0 Raiser, but failed as Anew was in love with one of the Gundam Pilots, Lyle Dylandy.

Beautiful cosplay! The photgrapher behind this is Shiro Ang, and the model is Jingggg from Deviant Art! Thanks for sharing this!

Bleach: Lilynette Gingerback

The young, female fracción of the Primera Espada, Coyote Starrk, Lilynette Gingerback is depicted as short-tempered and vocal, often showing emotions that Coyote does not. Coyote is the Espada that represents “Loneliness” but prefers to be surrounded by friends, even going to the point of pretending to be weak as weak ones don’t have to fight by themselves. It was through this grief that Lilynette was born.

She is also the one who holds Coyote’s power instead of a zanpakuto like the rest of the Espada. When they combine into Los Lobos, Lilynette is one of the guns Coyote wields.

It would be difficult to cosplay Lilynette in an actual convention, that’s for sure. So I guess there will only be private photo shoots for this cosplay. Nice job!

Fate/Hollow Ataraxia: Caren Ortensia

fate/hollow ataraxia cosplay - caren ortensiaA member of the Church and Burial Agency, Caren is a kind-hearted priestess who believes her only purpose in life is to help others. When she is hurt, she does not blame the individual who hurt her, but places the blame on demons. When she is at fault, she apologizes to God and not to the person she was wronged.

Strangely enough, despite her projected kindness, she loves exploiting other people’s weaknesses, antagonizing them to the point of humiliating them. She also deliberately wears her priestess robes without the skirt to seduce men.

That is one scary priestess. And yes, I know she’s suppose to have white hair, but that has never stopped me from featuring cosplayers like her. Awesome job!

Bleach: Kusajishi Yachiru

bleach cosplay - kusajishi yachiruA young infant Zaraki Kenpachi found in the 79th District of Rukongai’s North Alley, “Kusajishi”, Yachiru is a cheerful, carefree girl who often clings to Kenpachi’s back for transport. She is child-like in both appearance and action, but is also very strong, earning the right to be the lieutenant of the 11th Division. Her name is said to be in memory of the only person Kenpachi ever admired.

Cute cosplay! She’s so adorable, just like Yachiru. I sometimes wonder which one is cuter, her or Nell? Anyway, great cosplaying!

Inuyasha: Sesshoumaru... 5.5?

inuyasha cosplay - sesshoumaruI know what you’re thinking, and no, I’m not kidding.

You have to admit, this is a pretty accurate cosplay of Sesshoumaru. Maybe he looks a bit friendlier than the real Sesshoumaru, but hey, he had to be trained somehow.

It makes me wish Rin was around to see this. Thanks to Godly for sharing this photo!

Shugo Chara!: Hinamori Amu

shugo chara! cosplay - hinamori amuA cool and spicy student of Seiyo Elementary and secretly the Guardian Joker, Amu is a shy and timid girl who made a wish to have the courage to show her true self. Her wish is granted in the form of three colorful eggs which hatched into Guardian Characters, Ran, Miki, and Su. These Guardians transform with Amu when she needs to purify X Eggs and X Characters; much to Amu’s embarrassment as they make her speak “totally out of character”.

I guess everyone has an image they want to keep up with. Although I also think it’s natural to act differently depending on the crowd you’re with. Too bad this picture is a little blurry, but I wanted to share it anyway. Awesome cosplay!

Tsubasa – Reservoir Chronicle: Syaoran and Sakura 02

tsubasa - reservoir chronicle cosplay - syaoran and sakuraWhen Sakura had a vision of a mysterious symbol Syaoran found in the ruins, she visits Syaoran the following day, unknowingly sealing her fate. The symbol in her visions pull her into a secret room, turning her soul into a pair of ghostly wings. Syaoran was able to rescue her at the cost of her wings and soon finds out from High Priest Yukito that they had to find a way to retrieve the feathers scattered through dimensions or Sakura will die.

Beautiful cosplay! I especially like the feather Sakura is holding. I wonder if she made it from scratch or cut and painted a real feather? Nice job though!

Naruto: Haruno Sakura 03

naruto cosplay - haruno sakura 04

Known to have deep feelings for Uchiha Sasuke, Sakura kept he hair long at the beginning of the series mainly because she heard Sasuke preferred girls with long hair. As she began to spend more time with him as a teammate, Sakura became concerened that Sasuke would abandon her and the rest of Konohagakure because of his lust for power. When her fears prove to be correct, she does everything she could to stop him from leaving, even confessing her love for him and offering to join him, to no avail.

Cute Sakura cosplayer! I do prefer her with long hair too. I'm not sure why she chopped her hair off, but I think it was because of one of their tests in becoming a ninja? Anyway, great cosplaying!

Bleach: Ichimaru Gin 02

bleach cosplay - ichimaru ginGraduating from the Soul Society’s Academy after only a year, Ichimaru Gin became captain of the 3rd Division after serving under Sosuke Aizen as the lieutenant of the 5th Division. He joins Aizen when he escapes to Hueco Mundo in order to fulfill Aizen’s plans to “change the world”. The only person he seems to truly care about is Mtsumoto Rangiku, a childhood friend and lieutenant of the 10th Division under Hitsugaya Toshiro.

I have no idea why he’s carrying Gin’s portrait. Maybe to show that the old Gin as a captain is dead and a new Gin, labeled a traitor, is born? It’s scary at how similar they look though. Nice cosplaying!

Yu Yu Hakusho: Kuwabara Kazuma

yu yu hakusho cosplay - kuwabara kazumaUrameshi Yusuke’s rival who became his loyal friend and companion as time passed by, Kuwabara was thought of as a normal human being with strong Reiki (spiritual) sensitivity. He was able to master his powers, manifesting a Rei Ken or “spirit sword” and by the end of the series, becomes the strongest human alive.

I didn’t like Kuwabara that much when the series came out. He’s a main character, but he was mostly there for comic relief. It was nice that he thought about his future in the final chapters though. Great cosplay!

Sailor Stars: Sailor Cosmos

sailor stars cosplay - sailor cosmosA character that only appeared in the manga, Sailor Cosmos is said to be the ultimate form of Sailor Moon. She comes from the future as an infant named “Chibi-Chibi” to encourage Usagi to defeat Chaos in the final battle. She initially wanted to destroy the Galaxy Cauldron altogether, but Sailor Moon protests when she realized no stars will be born if the Cauldron is destroyed. Sailor Moon’s sacrifice reminded her of the strength and courage she needed, returning to the future with renewed hope.

Beautiful cosplay! I always thought she was far more beautiful than Sailor Moon. Then again, she and Sailor Moon may be one and the same. What do you guys think?

Rozen Maiden: Suigintou and Shinku

rozen maiden cosplay - suigintou and shinkuThe main characters from Rozen Maiden, Shinku posses the appearance and powers of "Alice", the perfect girl. Their Creator himself acknowledges her, and shares to her a secret; a very important secret about the Alice game.

On the other hand, Suigintou is no where near perfect, as she is an incomplete doll. She does, however, posses the strongest desire and determination to be the chosen one.

Such a pretty pair! I love their costumes very much. Great work! And great photography too!

Kuroshitsuji: Sebastian Michaelis 03

kuroshitsuji cosplay by stay - sebastian michaelis

Oh, hello there.

I think people may have noticed I had to take down the shoutbox for a while. My site was getting a virus alert and I think someone may have left it there.

Also, I have noticed a lot of people are fighting in my comments lately, and saying unappropriate things. Which is sad when my shoutbox has a lot of good comments.

So for now, the shoutbox will be taken down until I can get rid of the virus. I hope everyone will continue to support Cosplay Holic! And for today, I will leave you with Stay's version of Kuroshitsuji's Sebastian Michaelis. わたしはあくまで執事ですから~!

Zone-00: Okino Miyoko

unknown cosplay 034 from japan comiket 2009 zone-00 cosplay - okino miyoko / majokoI have a sinking feeling I should know this character.

I recall seeing a game cover with a girl portrait on it, looking eerily similar to this cosplayer. However, I'm also pretty sure that game's model had more eye make-up on her.

Does anyone know which one I'm talking about? It's a fairly recent game I believe.

Anyway, if anyone knows who this cosplayer is, drop me a note? As well as any other unknown cosplay I might still have in this category. Thanks! I appreciate it very much!

EDIT: Thanks to anon who commented saying this is from the manga series, Zone-00!

Vampire Knight: Kuran Kaname 07

vampire knight cosplay - kuran kaname 07

Kuran Kaname is the first ancestor of the Kuran clan who was taken from eternal slumber and forced back into the land of the living by his own descendant, Rido Kuran. While Rido’s purpose in reviving Kaname was to make use of his powers, Kaname was able to kill his master by the use of a “white pawn stained black”, Kiryuu Zero.

Quite impressive that the cosplayer is able to capture Kaname’s look. I love the eyes and how they seem to look right through you. Wonderful job!

Clannad: Fujibayashi Kyou 02

clannad cosplay - fujibayashi kyou 02Kyou is the class representative and older twin of Ryou. The sisters have a mutual crush over one boy, Okazaki Tomoya, but because Kyou is older, she felt the need to let her younger sister try to win Tomoya’s feelings first. It wasn’t until Sunohara Youhei, Tomoya’s best friend, finds out that she decides to settle things out with Tomoya under Youhei’s advice.

Cute cosplay! I especially like that she has Kyou’s little pet boar “Button” with her. Nice work!

Pokemon Advanced: Haruka and Kasumi

pokemon advanced cosplay - may and misty / haruka and kasumiThe female protagonists of the Pokemon series, May is the 10-year-old daughter of Petalburg City Gym Leader, Norman. She has a younger brother named Masato who is a budding Pokemon leader but far too young to receive his own pokemon yet. May starts out as a girl who doesn't like pokemon but found interest in participating in Pokemon Contests. Quite a difference to Kasumi, who dreams of becoming the World's Greatest Water Pokemon Trainer.

Cute pair aren't they? I never got to follow the Pokemon series all the way. I may have stopped after I saw the movie with Mewtwo in it. But anyway, beautiful cosplay!
