Neon Genesis Evangelion: Ayanami Rei 05

neon genesis evangelion cosplay - ayanami rei 05Actually, I’m not sure whether this is intended to be a cosplay of Ayanami Rei or Ikari Yui.

You see, Rei is only a human vessel, something created in order to contain a soul. She was created by Gendo who had lots his wife during a test experiment on an Eva Unit. Yui disappeared, and it is said her soul resides in Eva.

With such a hair color, this cosplayer appears to be more like Yui than Rei, but I don’t recall Yui wearing a plug suit, so I think Rei would be more suitable. Beautiful cosplay!

    Cool plug suit!

    I think it’s Rei. Dunno if that blue part on her hair is some lighting effect or it was highlighted a bit.
