Vocaloid 2: Kagamine Len 17

vocaloid 2 cosplay - kagamine len by lian jiang

Did you find my shoes there?
Did you find my letter there?

What I saw at the very last moment is
Cold concrete, the sky, and the clouds

“Heavy Wooden Box”
Lyrics and translation by Vocalochu

Isn’t Lian Jiang (连酱) so cute as Len? The background looks like a busy food court, but I love the star on the ceiling! It looks appropriate for Len! Thanks to Felicity for sharing this!

Rise of the Guardians | Frozen: Jack Frost and Elsa 03

rise of the guardians and frozen cosplay - jack frost and elsa by asuka and qing chunIt’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all
Up here in the cold thin air, I finally can breathe
I know I left a life behind, but I'm too relieved to grieve

“Let It Go” Lyrics from Disney Wiki

Quite possibly one of the prettiest crossovers I’ve seen today! I think a lot of fans would love to see a movie with these two, but seeing they’re from different studios, we can only dream. Thanks to Lara for sending this in!

how to get featured on cosplay holic

Please note that since there is only one person writing out all these blog features, and because she is busy trying to become a mangaka, not all messages will be replied to. The fastest way to get featured would be to post your photo on our Facebook Page, but I prefer emails overall.

Hope this clears things up! Thanks for your patience and support! Cosplay Holic would not have remained online for nearly 7 years without you, our loyal readers and fans, sending in requests and suggestions! Here’s to reaching year ten!

Fire Emblem: Souen no Kiseki: Reyson

Having stayed in Phoenicis for a prolonged period of time, Reyson is described to be quite similar to the Hawks, as he possesses a fiery temper and an iron will. This is almost completely opposite to the serene demeanor shown by his own brother, Rafiel. Reyson could be said to be more like a Hawk than a Heron, and he has expressed a desire to be more like Tibarn, the Hawk King of Phoenicis.

Those wings look absolutely amazing! After I saw this in my Deviant Art feed, I knew I hard to feature Berry here! Please do visit his dA and give him your support!

RWBY: Ruby Rose

rwby cosplay - ruby rose by adellexeThe main protagonist and leader of Team RWBY, Ruby’s weapon of choice us a High Caliber Sniper Scythe (HCSS) called Crescent Rose. She is quite intelligent as she designed and built Crescent Rose during her time at Signal. Ruby can be described as impulsive and naive, but she can be serious and dependable when needed.

I hope most of you are sitting down as you read this because this cosplayer happens to be a man.

I’m not joking. This is one very good crossplay.

When I first featured Adellexe here as Kirito, I thought he was a girl at first, but he corrected me on Deviant Art saying that he was, in fact, a man. Whether you believe it or not, this is still one very impressive cosplay! Thanks again to Michelle for sending this in!

Sailor Moon: Tsukino Usagi and Mizuno Ami

sailor moon cosplay - tsukino usagi and mizuno ami

Like Usagi, Mizuno Ami attended Azabu Juuban Junior High School. She is said to be a standoffish genius who prefers to eat her lunch alone on the rooftop so that she could study. When Usagi met Ami, she realized that Ami was merely shy, and not at all antisocial. Usagi eventually befriended Ami and helped her realize that she was more than just a bookworm.

Candise1992 makes an beautiful Ami and Milena Hime looks adorable as Usagi too! I love the additional use of confetti for this photo! It makes the mood look so happy and colorful! Thanks to Leila for sending this in!

Sleeping Beauty: Maleficent

maleficent cosplay by lindze a'la mode

Maleficent is the antagonist of the 1959 Walt Disney film, “Sleeping Beauty” and an official Disney Villain. She is the self-proclaimed “Mistress of All Evil” who cursed the then infant Princess Aurora to her death before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, all because Maleficent was not invited to the royal christening. In the 2014 live-action motion picture, Maleficent cursed Aurora as a form of revenge against King Stefan, who betrayed and violated her in order to ascend the throne.

There was a lot of love and a lot of hate for the film, but I enjoyed Angelina Jolie’s version overall. Lindze  A’la Mode makes a fantastic Maleficent too! And photographer, Benny Lee, certainly pulled out all the stops for this particular photo. Thanks to Gerald for suggesting this!

Uta no Prince-sama: Kurosaki Ranmaru and Kotobuki Reiji

Both Kurosaki Ranmaru and Kotobuki Reiji are part of the idol group, “Quartet Night” under Shinning Agency. Reiji can be a bit of a prankster and he enjoys playing tricks on Ranmaru, who is an easy target. Nevertheless, they have a good working relationship, as Reiji was the one who calmed Ranmaru down after Ren challenged Ranmaru’s authority.

I like how serene this photo looks, despite the light BL hints. I never thought they’d be paired together actually, but I guess fans of this franchise could have all sorts of pairings. Thanks to Clara for sending this in!

Anonymous asked:

Are you a Japanese mangaka?

I’m not Japanese, that’s for sure! But yes, I am a mangaka (Japanese-styled comics’ artist) by trade. Aside from my real names, I’m known as the artist “Kurohiko” here in the Philippines. I’m currently working on “KARMA” under Oh No! Manga, “Crystal Shadows” under Studio 4 Eyes, “A Day in the Life of Mei” under Pinoy Jokes + Manga Art, and “I Refuse Rue!” under Imaginarium among many other side projects/stories! You can view most of my work on my personal website, or in my Facebook Page.

Anyway, please do feel free to comment on who the cosplayer is and who she is cosplaying as! Thanks to Michelle for sending this in!

EDIT: Thanks to Lance for letting me know this is Mei Wai cosplaying a Sorcerer from Aion: The Tower of Eternity!

Cosplay Tutorial: Shingeki no Kyojin’s Female Titan Make Up

If you ever wanted to cosplay as the female titan from Shingeki no Kyojin, I think this make up tutorial may be quite useful for you guys.

I didn’t know you could use wig glue for getting those textures on your face. I don’t think I’d dare, but it’s an idea nonetheless. Thanks to fashion designer Kimura U for the awesome video!

Transformers: Optimus Prime (Kre-O)

transformers cosplay - optimus prime (kre-o) at the age of extinction megamall event 2014Always serious and responsible, Optimus Prime does not care for the hi-jinks of the other Kreons. He believes that it is their responsibility to ensure all brick-made beings are able to live in freedom. He likes sending Bumblebee on missions so that he can get some work done instead of worrying about whose bricks he’ll rearrange next.

Another Kre-O Transformer at the Age of Extinction event in Megamall last May 2014! Just look at how adorable this thing is! I need to convince my nephew to build one of this size, maybe for the Toy Museum?

Vocaloid 2: Hatsune Miku 52

vocaloid 2 cosplay - hatsune miku at anime japan 2014

The world you were with me in is still
Wandering in my heart

You’re far from me but still
Can you hear my voice?

Looking up to the sky of those days
I tried finding feelings that could connect to you

“You and the World”
Lyrics and Translation by Vocalochu

Another amazing Hatsune Miku from Anime Japan 2014! It must be pretty challenging to keep a long wig like that at an event from getting frizzy! She looks absolutely flawless! Thanks again to Mikasa for sending this in!

Mahou Shoujo Taisen: Aoba Naruko

mahou shoujo taisen cosplay - aoba naruko at anime japan 2014A media franchise created by the internet television variety show “2.5 Jigen Terebi”, Magica Wars consists several magical girl games on various platforms and an anime series by Gianax. The franchise personifies Japan’s 47 prefectures represented by a magical girl. Featured in this cosplay is the representative of Miyagi Prefecture, Aoba Naruko.

I keep wondering whether or not her hair accessories are as heavy as they look. It must be quite a challenge to wear that all day! This should be a pretty interesting anime, don’t you think? Thanks to Mikasa for sending this in!

The Dark Knight: The Joker

the dark knight cosplay - the jokerOne of the threats the Joker made during “The Dark Knight” was that he would bomb a hospital unless Coleman Reese, an accountant at Wayne Enterprises, is killed. Reese was planning to reveal Batman’s true identity, but later changed his mind when Bruce Wayne protected him. The Joker then visits Harvey Dent in the hospital wearing a nurse’s uniform and convinces Harvey to seek revenge for the death of Rachel Dawes.

This kinda scares me a little. I mean, he looks an awful lot like Heath Ledger, doesn’t he? It’s unfortunate that Ledger died of an accidental prescription drug overdose, I bet he’d have the time of his life laughing at people with his signature Joker laugh. Thanks to Lydia for sending this in!

Cosplay is…

I feel like this should be posted everywhere, so!

digimon cosplay - agumon and wargreymon

Cosplay is amazing because it can make people look at someone in awe and wonder at their hard work and skill.

But the best kind of cosplay is the kind that inspires people to be creative with new ideas.

Likewise the best cosplayers are the ones that don't get discouraged when they see someone doing an amazing cosplay, but instead become inspired to work that much harder for themselves!
