Bleach: Kuchiki Rukia 05

bleachWhen Rukia was forced to give her Soul Reaper abilities to Ichigo in order to save his family, she was left too weak to return to Soul Society. As such, she remained in the human world under Ichigo’s care until Byakuya and Renji were sent to find her. Unfortunately, Rukia was sentenced to death because of her actions and it’s up to Ichigo to save her.

Happy Halloween, everyone! I thought it would be appropriate to feature a shinigami for the occasion! I hope everyone has an awesome Halloween!

Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu: Sylvia

unknown cosplay 76 from comiket 2010 / fire emblem: seisen no keifu cosplay - sylviaNow this girl looks like someone who came out of Ragnarok Online. But I’ve never played the game before, so I can’t be sure, especially with all the character upgrades they’ve done over the years!

She does remind me of the Gypsy character though… I wonder if that’s an accurate guess? Please help me out, guys! Thanks again to Gundamu for the photo!

EDIT: Thanks to Anon for letting me know she's Sylvia from Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu!

Mayoi Neko Overrun!: Serizawa Fumino

unknown cosplay 75 from comiket 2010 - mayoi neko overrun! cosplay - serizawa fuminoWhen I first saw this in my inbox, it made me think of Toradora!’s Aisaka Taiga. She has blond hair, and the same tsundere attitude just like Taiga, but I don’t think they ever had uniforms like this in the series.

Does anyone have a better idea? Thanks to Bonamana for sending this!

EDIT: Thanks to kawainu for commenting she's Serizawa Fumino from Mayoi Neko Overrun!

The only female member of Shichibukai, Pirate Empress Boa Hancock is also known as the Snake Princess of Amazon Lily. Her beauty is said to be legendary, comparing her to the beauty of mermaids. She and her two younger Gorgon sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold are the current rulers of the Kuja Tribe.

Beautiful cosplay! And from what I’ve read, a very hard photo to find. Thanks to Aerie for taking the time to look for this and sending it to my email!

Naruto: Uchiha Itachi 02

naruto cosplay - uchiha itachi 02Because of the violence of war Itachi experienced during his early childhood, he longed for peace and wished to achieve it at any cost. This was the reason why he became a double agent when his clan planned a coup d'état against Konohagakure. He was given orders to assassinate all of the Uchiha, but could not bring himself to kill his younger brother, Sasuke. He made himself out as a villain and joined the criminal organization, Akatsuki, continuing his work as an agent of Konoha.

Beautiful cosplay! I’ve always liked this character despite being the villain in Naruto. Thanks to Trida for sending this!

EDIT: Thanks to anon for commenting the cosplayer is Jesuke!

Gyakuten Kenji: Konomichi Ichiru

gyakuten kenji / ace attorney investigations: miles edgeworth cosplay - konomichi ichiru (rhoda teneiro)Chief Flight Attendant Konomichi Ichiru (Rhoda Teneiro) is known for her polite and courteous nature towards her passengers. She takes her job seriously and has great pride in her work. Her main job aboard the plane is managing the gift shop, which carries her own designer line of suitcases. She serves as one of the witnesses in Gyakuten Kenji’s second case.

Pretty impressive, especially the hair! I’m still puzzled how she even got her hair to look that way. Thanks to Joof for emailing this!

She whistles a song known as “Philistine” which is the last thing her victims hear before their untimely death.

Final Fantasy X: Tidus 02

final fantasy x cosplay - tidus 02The main protagonist of Final Fantasy X, Tidus is a rising Blitzball star player from Zanarkand. He was transported to the world of Spira after Sin attacked Zanarkand. There, he met the young summoner, Yuna who was set on a pilgrimage in an attempt to put an end to the very creature that attacked his homeland. Tidus joined Yuna and her guardians hoping that he would one day find his way home.

That water looks so calm that it’s almost… fake. I’m hoping that’s not salt water or it might ruin the costume! Thanks again to Syaza for the contribution!

Vampire Knight: Kain Akatsuki

vampire knight cosplay - kain akatsukiAido Hanabusa's cousin, Kain Akatsuki is considered to be one of Kuran Kaname's Right Hand Men. Despite his “wild” appearance, he is actually quite mellow and laidback. Kain is known for his incredible perception and sensitivity, particularly to Aido’s and Ruka’s feelings.

Impressive Kain cosplay. I only wish we could see more of this cosplayer. Thanks to Imeru for sending this!

Unknown Entry 074

unknown cosplay 74 from comiket 2010

To be completely honest, I’m not even sure if she’s cosplaying at all. I mean, I think girls who wear kimonos are just as common in anime conventions as girls who were seifuku and French Maid uniforms.

So, other than Dragon Ball’s Super Saiyan Son Goku in the background, I have no idea… Thanks to Amelia for sending this in!

Hetalia: Axis Powers: Belarus

unknown cosplay 73 from comiket 2010 - hetalia: axis powers cosplay - belarusNow her I'm pretty sure I've seen somewhere before. I just can’t seem to figure out where exactly that is.

She looks like a character that stepped out of a vampire novel or even a fighting game. Black gloves seem to be fairly uncommon to go with a French Maid uniform after all, but the blue ribbon with the blond wig make me think of Alice.

Anyone have a better idea? Thanks again to Zero Haven for the contribution!

EDIT: Thanks to Kupkakes-Hime♥ for commenting this is Belarus from Hetalia: Axis Powers!

Touhou Project: Flandre Scarlet

touhou project cosplay - flandre scarlet from comiket 2010Younger sister of Mistress Remilia Scarlet, Flandre is the “dirty little secret” of the Scarlet Devil Mansion. She has incredible destructive powers but she has little to no self-control due to her unstable personality. Thus, Remilia has ordered her never to step out of the mansion and she has had no substantive contact with any humans other than Izayoi Sakuya for nearly 500 years.

So cute! And so scary at the same time. I love how she’s got the personality down with her awesome cosplay. Thanks again to Ophelia for the photo!

LovePlus: Kobayakawa Rinko and Anegasaki Nene

loveplus cosplay - kobayakawa rinko and anegasaki nene from comiket 2010Rinko is the youngest of the three girls featured in LovePlus. She is in her first year of high school and is usually alone reading or listening to punk music.

Nene, on the other hand, is the eldest, as she is on her third year, and the most mature. She is very reliable and her hobbies include watching horror films and doing housework.

They’re so cute, but I wish they had also posed with Manaka just to complete all three. Thanks to Niso-Niso for sending this!

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Mars, Sailor Chibi Moon, Sailor Moon, and Sailor Jupiter

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor mars, sailor chibi moon, sailor moon, and sailor jupiter from comiket 2010

The third installment of the Sailor Moon Saga, Sailor Moon S is considered to be one of the darkest story lines, partly due to the Death Busters’ ultimate goal of destroying all life and partly due to ethical themes of sacrifice. Chibiusa, Usagi’s daughter, returns with her own powers as Sailor Chibi Moon and fights along side her mother and the other Sailor Senshi.

Beautiful cosplays! I’m just wondering why there are only four senshi’s instead of the usual five or six, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Venus included. Maybe the rest were walking around Comiket at the time? Thanks to Misa for sending this!

HeartCatch PreCure!: Cure Blossom, Cure Sunshine, and Cure Marine

heartcatch precure! cosplay - cure blossom, cure sunshine, and cure marine from comiket 2010

"The flower spreading throughout the land, Cure Blossom!"

"The flower bathing in the sunlight, Cure Sunshine!"

"The flower fluttering by the ocean winds, Cure Marine!"

Aren't the the cutest trio you’ve ever laid eyes on? Too bad they don’t have Cure Moonlight with them to complete all four Pretty Cures. Thanks again to Edward for the contribution!

Vocaloid 2: Hatsune Miku 13

vocaloid 2 cosplay hatsune miku as kagamine rin from comiket 2010Isn’t this one of the most unique (if not confusing) cosplays you’ve ever seen?

I wasn’t sure whether I should label this as Hatsune Miku or Kagamine Rin. In the end, I had to decide she was Hatsune Miku cosplaying as Kagamine Rin.

A cosplayed character cosplaying as another character. Now that’s definitely something! Thanks again to Tanaka for the contribution!

Monster Hunter: Kirin

monster hunter cosplay - kirin from comiket 2010The Kirin resemble white unicorns and have the ability to summon lightning to strike attackers or the area surrounding it. It casts a white “shadow” underneath it at all times. Along with the White Fatalis, the Kirin’s mane will continue to “flow” after its death.

Beautiful cosplay! And I see a Hatsune Miku singing in the background! Thanks again to Lemi for sending this in!

Demonbane: Another Blood

unknown cosplay 72 from comiket 2010 - demonbane cosplay - another bloodI'm beginning to feel ashamed about my inability to distinguish the characters these cosplayers are role playing as…

Unless this is Megurine Luka from Vocaloid 2 wearing a red dress, then your guess is as good as mine. Please leave comments and hopefully, we’ll figure this out too!

Thanks again to Yula for the contribution!

EDIT: Thanks to anon and Afiqah for letting me know this is Another Blood from Demonbane!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!: Ayuzawa Misaki

unknown cosplay 71 from comiket 2010 - kaicho wa maid-sama! cosplay - ayuzawa misaki

I suppose getting Maid Cafes to promote their shops in a convention is common practice in Japan. But I still wish they had flyers or IDs with them so that we would know where to go too!

Then again, maybe she really is cosplaying from a series that I’m not familiar with. Please do leave a comment and let me know! Thanks to William for the photo!

EDIT: Thanks to everyone who commented saying she's Ayuzawa Misaki from Kaicho wa Maid-sama!

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Ayanami Rei 06

neon genesis evangelion cosplay - ayanami rei 06 from comiket 2010Although Rei is said to be an emotionless character, the latest film known as Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance reveals a more mature Rei with a developed personality. She once attempted to host a dinner party for her fellow pilots and she worked very hard in preparing the food. Her relationship with Ikari Shinji is also shown much more openly than the original series.

So daring! Wasn’t it already cold in Japan during Comiket 2010? And I see possible Takasugi Shinsuke in the background! Thanks again to Jamie for sending this!
