Onegai My Melody: Kurumi Nui

Friday, October 31st, 2008

It’s someone’s birthday today in Sanrio, and I know just the present to send her.

onegai my melody cosplay - kuromi / kurumi nui

Kurumi Nui is actually Kuromi’s human form. It’s incredibly rare to find good cosplays of Kurumi/Kuromi, but this is my pick from the bunch. She even has Kuromi’s Notebook in the corner.

Happy birthday, Kuromi! I hope you’re not too mad at Hello Kitty anymore. At least there are a lot of people cosplaying you, right? You’re quite pretty as a human, no wonder Hiiragi Keiichi fell in love with you!

Lucky Star: Takara Miyuki

lucky star cosplay - takara miyukiThe well-mannered young lady of the Lucky Star group, Takara Miyuki was the class president for her grade level in her first year. She prefers glasses over contact lenses because she’s afraid of putting the lenses into her eyes. Konata often teases her for embodying a large number of moe archetypes.

She makes a cute Miyuki, don’t you think? It’s interesting to note that she even colored her eyebrows for this cosplay. Nice work! I love her choice in eye glass frames too.

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children: Cloud Strife 03

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

This is the third Cloud cosplayer I’ve seen that’s taken my breath away.

final fantasy vii 7 advent children cosplay - clous strife 03

It’s a simple shot, but very artistic. Cloud does have a tendency to go about by himself to think things through, and this is why I think this photo captures Cloud’s personality perfectly.

Nice work on this! I wonder if he used hair cement too?

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Neptune 02

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor neptuneThe “Miss Congeniality” of the Sailor Senshi, Kaioh Michiru, whom is commonly referred as Sailor Neptune is a polite, calm, and sophisticated person who is very intelligent and gifted in art and music. She is often seen along side Teno Haruka (Sailor Uranus) to which several controversies have sprung from.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen pretty Senshi cosplayers. I’ve only got to see a couple of episodes of Sailormoon S, but I heard it was the best of the series. Anyway, great work on this! I really like her wig and eyes. It’s quite perfect, don’t you think?

Oh! My Maid: Shuka

Monday, October 27th, 2008

unknown cosplay 015I realize that this image looks a little bit on the generic side like most Unknown Entries, so trying to figure out who this is will be a pain…

But I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful her wig looks that I had to share it with everyone.

Then again, she could be from a game I don’t know of again, since I’m more familiar with anime than games, right?

So, does anyone have any guesses?

EDIT: Thanks to No_name for commenting that this is Shuka from Oh! My Maid.

The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi: Suzumiya Haruhi 03

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

the melancholy of suzumiya haruhi cosplay - suzumiya haruhiI should remind myself to check my emails more often.

I received this picture from §oL some time ago, and it got buried under all the requests. I only got to feature this now, sadly.

Isn’t she such a cute Haruhi? She’s definitely among the Chibi Category, and a young professional I’d say.

Thanks for the email, §oL! You can find two other Haruhi cosplayers here and here. Enjoy!

Onegai My Melody: Yumeno Uta

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

When I first heard about My Melody having an anime, I was skeptical. I mean… why would Sanrio create an anime series? And how good would it be?

You’d be pretty surprised at Onegai My melody’s Story line. It’s very… non-Sanrio like.

onegai my melody cosplay - yumeno utaHere we have the main character of the series, Yumeno Uta. She is an energetic, cheerful girl who lead a normal life until a little bunny named Kuromi casts a spell on her, making her a victim to Kuromi’s Dark Magic (basically, her violin began playing on its own, off cue, during a performance!).

My Melody was able to save her using her own magic and they began to work together to keep Kuromi from succeeding in resurrecting the Spirit of Dark power. Uta also has the ability to power up the Melody Tact through her singing.

Cute cosplayer. I was able to find this thanks to Hiiragi Keiichi of Sanriotown! I have a few more pictures from the series I’d like to share, but I’ll post them some other time. I wouldn’t want to flood everyone with Onegai My Melody cosplays, even if we are in Sanriotown!
