Rozen Maiden: Suiseiseki

rozen maiden cosplay - suiseiseki

Meet Jesuke, cosplayer extraordinaire. I found her in Deviant Art, and she makes the best costumes I’ve ever seen. She can portray both male and female characters beautifully, and makes sure every detail of her cosplay is just right.

This is one of my favorite pictures of hers. She’s cosplaying Suiseiseki of the Rozen Maiden series. Notice that one of her eyes is red, and the other is green. That’s because Suiseiseki has a twin named Souseiseki. They both have red and green eyes, and for whichever twin has the one color on the left, the other will have on the right.

Make sure you visit Jesuke’s Site in Deviant Art for more of her cosplay pictures!

Naruto: Haruno Sakura

naruto cosplay - haruno sakuraI’ve seen many people attempt to portray Haruno Sakura from Naruto. And in my *ehem* unfortunate experience, they either don’t get it right or they’re just trying to hard.

Sakura is a fun character to cosplay. She’s a headstrong, very intelligent, and if she doesn’t get her way, you better run.

How could Sasuke resist such a cute girl? Beauty and brains, and still he prefers revenge…

I love her dress and her hair… Her eyes look like they can pierce your soul… But I begin to wonder…

Why are her hails painted neon green..?

Image was first found on the Anime Illusions Forums.

Bleach: Ishida Uryuu

bleach cosplay - ishida uryuuI got this image from Rukia was the one who found this image and gave a nice article about it…

I quote from the review:

Some die-hard BLEACH fans say that the black detailing should be blue, while others argue that he/she probably based it off of the manga. I?ve even heard of people complaining about the hair color.

To me, give it a rest people!!! Unless you yourself can cosplay better than this, I suggest critiques should keep their mouths shut! This Ishida in his Quincy outfit is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s! So there! >:E

I have to agree with her… Also, I think this cosplayer is a girl. No confusion and/or arguments about it…

Air: Tono Minagi

air cosplay - tono minagiBeing an otaku means entering into a world of fantasy where anything can be achieved by anyone. This is a place where people sometimes become a fantasy themselves just for the heck of it…

Enter the world of cosplay.

The term “cosplay” is a merge of 2 words: costume and role-play. As the word suggests, people wear costumes of their anime character of choice then role-play the character, including his/her mannerisms and attitudes.

I have never actually cosplayed myself, though I do appreciate how people work hard to get their costumes and hairstyles to look just right. On the picture is an example. This girl is cosplaying Tono Minagi from the Anime Air. Otakus who are familiar with the anime will think she jumped right out of the game and into the real world.

Now this is what is known to be “real” cosplay…

More pictures to come…
