Chobits: Chii 05

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

chobits cosplay - chii 05 Time flies by so fast, and now it’s Christmas time again.

Who would have thought I’d be blogging about cosplays for about a year and a half now?

I should let you guys know that I’ll be taking a break from blogging until the first week of January to visit some family and friends during the holidays. I’ll be sure to come back quickly, don’t worry~

But I’m happy people like reading my blog. Thank you…

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you like this Chii cosplayer that I’ve decided to feature this special day. Now go and spend the day with your families, I know I will…

Fate/Stay Night: Rider

Wednesday, December 24th, 2008

fate/stay night cosplay - rider One of the servants of Fate/Stay Night, Rider is a vigilant servant who is very loyal to her master, Mato Shinji, despite being unable to provide her with mana like the other Masters. Her true identity is Medusa, the Gorgon from greek Mythology, although she does not posses Medusa’s trademark "snake-like" hair. She does, however, have very long hair and blindfolds herself to keep her Mystic Eyes, Cybele, from petrifying anyone within her range of vision.

Luty sent me this cosplay after I said I needed to find other cosplays of other character from the series, Fate/Stay Night. Thanks for sharing!

Sailor Moon S: Sailor Saturn 02

sailor moon s cosplay - sailor saturn 02

After being reborn thanks to the power of Sailor Moon, Sailor Saturn (aka Tomoe Hotaru) becomes adopted and cared for by Teno Haruka and Kaioh Michiru as well as Meioh Setsuna. As a toddler, Hotaru had a habit of calling Sailor Uranus, "Hakura-papa" even though she is actually female. Similarly, Hotaru called her other two guardians as "Michiru-mama" and "Setsuna-mama".

I love this image of Malro cosplaying Sailor Saturn! This was sent in by a frequent reader, Syaoyue via email. Thanks for the contribution!

Ragnarok Online: Huntress

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

unknown cosplay 023I had gone to Marikina to accompany my Aunt and Uncle a few months back and was surprised to see some cosplayers in SM.

This girl was one of the many cosplayers who were at the ASUS event. I have no idea what series she’s from, but she’s good friends with the Dark Magician Girl cosplayer behind her. A lot of people were taking her picture too.

Any idea where she’s from?

EDIT: Thanks to Animoni for commenting that this is a Huntress from Ragnarok Online!

Magic Knight Rayearth: Ryuuzaki Umi

Friday, December 19th, 2008

magic knight rayearth cosplay - ryuuzaki umi / marina santana The Magic Knight of Water, Ryuuzaki Umi is an only child who is quick-tempered and reluctant on fulfilling her role as one of the three Magic Knights of Cephiro.

During her journey to becoming a Magic Knight, she often wished to return home because of a fencing tournament she is participating in. It is this desire that prevented her from becoming a true Magic Knight, but she overcomes it eventually and revives her rune god before Hikaru or Fuu.

Beautiful cosplay! I believe she’s using her natural hair or some hair extensions, but I like this cosplay a lot even without the blue hair. Great work!

Ah! Megami-Sama!: Tatakau Tsubasa: Belldandy

ah! megami-sama!: tatakau tsubasa cosplay - belldandy

In the Ah! My Goddess! TV Special, Belldandy becomes temporarily evil when an angel eater captures Holy Bell and the child-form of the devil Hild implants a Tsukaima egg in her to see if she will turn from being a goddess to a devil like her.

This is quite a unique rendition of Belldandy. I really love her shoes, but it must be a pain to walk around in those. Nice job!

Lucky Star: Hiiragi Kagami

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

lucky star cosplay - hiiragi kagamiThe older twin sister of Tsuakasa, Kagami (who is sometimes referred as "Kagamin") is a friend of Konata’s and Miyuki’s who loves to read light novels and play shoot ‘em up games. She is in a different classroom than the other main characters of Lucky Star; much to her distress since she even chose the same course in her second year in hopes of being with them.

Kagami studies very hard and is somewhat egotistical. Konata often pesters Kagamin to allow her to copy her homework or tutor her when the exams and/or the due date for summer homework is just around the corner.

Cute cosplay. I found this when I was browsing through Photobucket. I wonder who the cosplayer is?
