Bleach: Shiba Kukaku

bleach cosplay - shiba kukauAn ill-tempered woman, Shiba Kukaku is a fireworks expert who lives in the outskirts of Soul Society. Her family fell from the status of Nobility when her older brother, Shiba Kaien died in the hands of Kuchiki Rukia. This made Kukaku and her younger brother, Ganju, distrust the shinigami, until Rukia explained how Kaien died and apologized. She is also a friend of Shihoin Yoruichi and Urahara Kisuke.

Very impressive cosplay! Both the costume and the setting is perfect and I like how the cosplayer hid her right arm since Kukaku has a prosthetic. Thanks to Hellena for sending this in!


  1. Interesting fact: The prosthetic wasn't added until the anime. In the manga she doesn't have one.

  2. Very beath-taking cosplay. Everything looks perfect!
