Uta no Prince-sama: Mikaze Ai (with the Doctor)

uta no prince-sama cosplay - mikaze ai and the doctor風は囁いた 耳元で
The wind whispered close to my ear,
“Live with love”
知らない感情と アツい何かが
Salvaged by an unknown emotion
And something hot

ピースがいつも 足りないような気がしていた
I’d felt as if there was always pieces missing心の欠片 何処にあるのだろう?
Where are the fragments of my heart?

翼が欲しかった 冷たいハートじゃなく
I’d wished for wings, not a frozen heart
そんなボクへと 君は羽根(うた)を…
You gave feathers of song to someone like me…

“Innocent Wind”
Lyrics and Translation by
☽ Moonlit Sanctuary ☾

Isn’t this beautiful? I think after the third season, UtaPri fans now know that Mikaze Ai is a robot, am I right? Still, I hope this cosplay didn’t spoil it for anyone out there! I wonder how they managed to stick the cables on?

Vampire Knight: Kuran Kaname and Kurosu Yuuki 04

vampire knight cosplay - kuran kaname by stayxxxx and kurosu yuuki by mon

While I was walking in the abyss of loneliness, I was saved
By realistic eyes that never change
But a shadow born as the light is bright
Deeply and pronouncedly creeps up to me
ふたつの鼓動 まるで合わせ鏡のように

The two heartbeats are exactly like two mirrors facing each other
The (pains) are similar (but) different and continue infinitely

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

I’m still a fan of this pairing even though we pretty much figured out that Kaname is practically Yuuki’s grandfather! I just feel like Kaname has been tortured enough as it is, why can’t he find the happiness he so desperately desires?

Oh well, I’m also very envious of Mon that she is able to cosplay with stayxxxx a lot! You guys remember their cosplay from Their Story? They looked amazing there too!

As usual, please support the cosplayers by visiting their Facebook pages, Mon夢 and stayxxxx! Thanks to Linda for sending this in!

I's: Yoshizuki Iori 04

i's cosplay - yoshizuki iori by kipiBorn on the 21st of March 1981, Yoshizuki Iori is a beautiful girl who is easy to like and get along with. She is prim, proper, and friendly who has a positive outlook on life. However, after a certain magazine published her swimsuit spread, Iori suddenly finds herself to be the center of unwanted attention. This makes it difficult for her to differentiate whether a person likes her for herself, or her beauty.

Another amazing cosplay by Kipi! In case you guys haven’t noticed yet, I’m a big fan of hers, and I’m sure many of you readers are too! I don’t know if she has official World Cosplay or Facebook accounts, but she does have a blog over at Lomo: http://still.kipi.lomo.jp/ Please continnue to support her! Thanks to X k for sharing this!

Kamigami no Asobi: Totsuka Tsukito 02

kamigami no asobi cosplay - totsuka tsukito by huayilis

Quiet and reserved Tsukito sees the ides of school as simply another task that he needs to do without having to be emotionally involved. He enjoys his time alone, and loves moon gazing as he is the god of the Moon. Nothing much is revealed about him except for the fact that he could calm his brother, Takeru’s rampage, and received a rabbit charm from him at some point.

Don’t you just love this cosplay of Chinese cosplayer, HUAYILIS (花伊LIS) as Tsukito? I’m not sure if that’s a real rabbit or not, but if you’d like to learn more about the cosplayer and support them, their sites include: Archive, Lofter, Plurk, Weibo, and World Cosplay! Thanks to Michelle for sending this in!

Unknown Cosplay #158

unknown cosplay (k project yatogami kuroh) by stayxxxx

After nearly a year, we now have another entry for the Unknown Section! Could it be a cause for a celebration, or maybe evidence of the admin’s laziness/incompetence?

This is undoubtedly stayxxx, but I don’t know who she is cosplaying as! I want to say it’s Yatogami Kuro from K Project, or maybe Saito Hajime from Hakuoki, but that gash on her forehead is making me doubt it’s one or the other! Perhaps you guys have a better idea who the character might be? Thanks to hoang hieu bang for sharing this!

DRAMAtical Murder: Seragaki Aoba

dramatical murder cosplay - seragaki aoba by ichihaSeragaki Aoba is a calm and caring individual who often smiles and helps others in any way that he can. Although he is kind, he does not allow others to take advantage of his kindness and knows when to stand up for himself. He is also unafraid of showing his true feelings even if he doesn’t know the other person very well. Aoba has strong leadership skills, often suggesting methods to their plans and asking questions as a precaution on whether something will succeed or not.

Japanese cosplayer Ichiha (イチハ) makes quite an impressive Aoba, doesn’t she? You guys might remember her as she also cosplayed Abe no Yasuaki from Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou! She has an amazing album of cosplays in her Archive, and a really charming blog too, so please be sure to support her! Thanks to Andrea for sending this in!

Samurai Shodown 3: Hisame Shizumaru

samurai shodown 3 cosplay - hisame shizumaru 2Hisame Shizumaru is a young, amnesiac boy who doesn’t remember his real name and thus chose to take on the name of his sword. He was labeled a “demon child” ever since he was born, so he chooses to live and survive on his own. He travels to find a “demon” in order to figure out for himself what it means to be one.

Initially believed to be modeled after Himura Kenshin of Rurouni Kenshin, the creators have stated that Shizumaru’s visual model was actually Kurama of Yu Yu Hakusho.

Belated Happy New Year everyone! Life is still throwing a couple of curve balls on my way, but I wanted to start the year right with one of my favorite characters! I actually thought he was Kenshin too when I first played Samurai Shodown, but then again, wasn’t Kenshin also modeled after Kurama? At least, that’s what I heard?

I hope everyone is having a wonderful new year! Let’s have even more fun together, shall we?
