Shingeki no Kyojin: Commander Dot Pixis

shingeki no kyojin cosplay commander dot pixis by master roshiThe highest ranking administrator of the Southern Region, Commander Dot Pixis has full authority over cities’ defenses. Known to be an eccentric man, he retains and calm, light-hearted demeanor even in the midst of a crisis. He is also an effective leader and an expert strategist, analyzing situations carefully and knowing when to take risks.

I cannot stop raving over how perfect this is, seeing the cosplayer is actually a 63-year-old Master Roshi! He must be the coolest grandpa ever! Thanks to Shuichi for sending his in!

Kagerou Project: Dark Konoha - Kuroha

kagerou project cosplay - dark konoha / kurohaMember Number 9 of Mekakushi Dan, Konoha is a boy who has the “awakening Eyes” ability. He was once known as Kokonose Haruka, a sickly boy who suffered from an illness which caused his body to have spasms and lose consciousness. He was later given the choice to live in his ideal body at the cost of his memories. An alternate personality known as Dark Konoha, often dubbed “Kuroha”, appears after trauma from “opening his eyes”.

Pretty spectacular looking cosplay! From what I’ve read on Wikipedia, Kagerou Daze is based on a Vocaloid song created by Jin, a.k.a. Shizen no Teki-P. It’s pretty awesome that one song could inspire such amazing characters. Thanks to Yaniv for sending this in!

Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club: Nanase Haruka 05

free! - iwatobi swim club cosplay nanase haruka by okageoA serious young man who never seems to show any kind of emotions, Nanase Haruka is a strong, quiet individual who loves water. In fact, he is so attracted to water that he will swim anywhere and in anything, including a fish tank! He apparently even wears his swimming jammers everywhere.

I’m beginning to wonder if I should even consider these to be cosplay when most cosplayers aren’t even wearing much costume to begin with! In any case, please do visit Okageo’s World Cosplay account for more of his photos. Thanks to Danica for sending this in!

Shingeki no Kyojin: Jean Kirstein

shingeki no kyojin cosplay jean kirschtein by reachOutspoken and honest, Jean Kirstein is unafraid to let others know what’s on his mind even if it may cause unnecessary conflict. He has strong leadership skills despite lacking strength as a soldier when compared to Levi, Mikasa, or Eren. However, Marco noted that this understanding of weakness allowed Jean to judge situations in the heat of the moment.

A rather handsome looking Korean cosplayer who goes by the nickname Reach on World Cosplay! The location is great for this shoot too! Thanks to Aerie for sending this in!

Kimi ni Todoke: Kurumizawa Ume and Miura Kento

kimi ni todoke cosplay kurumizawa ume and miura kentoBeautiful and popular, Kurumizawa Ume had the biggest crush on Kazehaya Shota and had stooped to petty tricks in order to win his heart. Although she appears to be extremely sweet and kind, she is only able to show her true self to Kuronuma Sawako. After getting an expected rejection from Shota, she began to accept Sawako as her rival, and no longer used unfair tactics as she had learned better. She once became angry at Miura Kento for saying unnecessary things to Sawako that caused a rift upon the developing relationship between Sawako and Shota.

Kento actually means well, but sometimes, I wish I could just slap the the guy. Kurumi, on the other hand, is one of those girls that I really can’t forgive and forget. Both are very unforgettable characters though, and I kinda wished Kento was in the movie too. Thanks to Jazz for sending this in!

Oboreru Knife: Mochizuki Natsume and Otomo Katsutoshi

I was actually hoping that someone somewhere would write a more detailed character profile for these two, but I’m been putting off this feature lone enough.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers. Please read at your own risk!

oboreru knife cosplay mochizuki natsume and otomo katsutoshi

After a certain stalking incident occurred due to her modeling work, Mochizuki Natsume stopped modeling all together and broke up her relationship with Hasegawa Kouichiro. Kouichiro’s childhood friend, Otomo Katsutoshi became close to her during this time and the two eventually started dating. Natsume later had enough courage to start her modeling work again.

This was submitted on Cosplay Holic’s Facebook Page earlier this year. I was planning to read this manga before I featured this but like I said, I’ve been putting it off long enough. Thanks to Salsa-chan for sharing this!

Vocaloid 2: Kagamine Len 15

vocaloid 2 cosplay kagamine lenこの地球に生まれてきて 数万年の歴史の中に
Ever since the dawn of mankind
What have they learned in the long history of the world?

時代の陰、陽共に 流れてきた膨大な時間の中に
Along with yin and yang, what terrified humankind?
What have they destroyed on the earth so far?

クーデター、テロ レジストーション レボリューション
Coups, terrorism, resistances and revolutions
The turbulent world full of complaints is not what they want
Why has nobody realized it yet?
Time to make a new world

“The New Millennium”
Lyrics and Translation by Vocalochu

A very cute Kagamine Len! And I have to agree with Dumpling, I don’t know if the cosplayer is a boy or a girl either. Thanks a lot for sharing this! And congratulations to Vocaloid 2 category for reaching more than 100 features in Cosplay Holic!

Inu x Boku SS: Roromiya Karuta

inu x boku ss cosplay roromiya karuta by shihomu

The SS agent assigned to Shokiin Kagero, Roromiya Karuta is actually a Gashadokuro, a large skeleton made for the bones of people who died from starvation. Her human form depicts her as normal, teenage girl who appears to be “zoned out” most of the time even though she is actually very clever and observant. She has special feelings for Watanuki Banri, her childhood friend, who decided to become strong because of Karuta.

She’s so cute! And yeah, she does look like she’s completely zoned out here. Thanks to Willy for sending this in! And please be sure to check out Shihomu’s World Cosplay account for more of her photos!

An extraordinary vortex,
Tortured by inferiority,

The way I want this
Momentary shots of fake scenes
Will it water down

Blinded past
What was it for me, take away
Without even saying goodbye

Shingeki no Kyojin: Levi 03

shingeki no kyojin cosplay levi 3Lance Corporal Levi has often been shown to be quite the sadistic person. When the Female Titan was captured in the forest of giant trees, he goes so far as to taunt her by saying he would cut off her human limbs in order to force her out of her titan body. He even admits that he was having fun watching her suffer, and that he believes they were a lot alike as they both slaughter their enemies ruthlessly.

Levi honestly scares me a little, but in the world of Shingeki no Kyojin, I would probably ask to be on his team too. Thanks to Wesley for sending this in!

Vocaloid 2: Hatsune Miku 47

vocaloid 2 cosplay hatsune miku

Now, as I head toward tomorrow with you,
Toward a tomorrow where we hold hands,
I’m hugged from behind,
As I hear countless voices

同時に泣き出す 君と僕
And then we burst into tears, you and me,
But showed each other warm smiles
So I say bye-bye,
To the old me, the “once upon a me”

“Once Upon a Me”

vampire knight cosplay kuran kaname by ryosakikaguya赤く赤く赤く揺れて
Shaking in red, in red, in red
To the edge of the dream, the dream
We can’t be separated

Already, everytime when I’m stifled to death after I give up again and again
My emotions that have no place to go wake me up
Your flawless smile knows it’s an existence
So distant that it’s cruel

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

A rather stunning looking Kaname by Ryosaki Kaguya from World Cosplay! If I remember correctly, Kaname wore this in one of the art inserts from the manga, and I like this look for his very much. Thanks to Icarus for sending this in!
