Vampire Knight: Kuran Kaname 20

vampire knight musical cosplay - kuran kaname by akiraFemale fashion model AKIRA was born on the 15th of February in Chiba Prefecture. She is a female model who is often mistaken to be a man even among her Japanese fans as she often cross-dresses or wears boys-styled clothing. AKIRA appears regularly in the alternative fashion magazines KERA and KERA BOKU. She is also the leader of the Visual Kei rock band DISACODE as their singer and song-writer.

AKIRA played Kuran Kaname in the musical adaptation of Vampire Knight.

Oh wow, I suspected that AKIRA was a girl, but I didn’t know that she uses her androgynous appearance for work too! Wait, does that even make sense? I just didn’t know that there is a cross-dressing culture in Japan outside of cosplay!

I guess this is also one of the reasons why cosplay is so popular in Japan? Thanks again to Erica for sending this in!
