Final Fantasy: Moogle

Thursday, April 29th, 2010


This is absolutely adorable! Awesome combination of kupo-ness and cuteness. XD

Moogles are a recurring race in the Final Fantasy series. They’re fluffy, have bat-like wings and sports a pom-pom on their heads. They have different roles on each game, like being a save point, a playable character, a summon, etc.

This cute cosplay was made by Khiorii. The Moogle character really suits the baby. Great combination of a cute costume and a cute model.

Kamen Rider Kuuga “Ultimate Form”

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

The tenth installment in the Kamen Rider series which was aired back in 2000, Kamen Rider Kuuga is the first in the series to air entirely in the Heisei Period (the current era of Japan which started on January 8, 1989, the first day after the death of Emperor Hirohito).

With his motif as the stag beetle, Kuuga is the only Kamen Rider appearing in the series, but he has many forms. His most dangerous form is known as the Ultimate Form which combines all the powers of the other forms.

This awesome Kamen Rider Kuuga Ultimate Form cosplay is by kuugadave. It looks like it came from the show itself!

Final Fantasy X: Yuna

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Yuna from final fantasy is being sexy while at the same time demure.  This cosplayer definitely caught those two opposing adjectives with her cosplay.  Amazing! I mean look at her.  She has that innocent smile in that pic while maintaining a very, very sexy package.  I wonder if she cosplays a lot…

Naruto: Hinata Hyuga

Thursday, April 8th, 2010


Among the caucasian cosplayers, this one here is one of the best I’ve seen.

Well it makes sense really, most anime characters are based on Asian traits so they rarely look good when cosplayed by another race. But this is a great cosplay of Hinata! Everything looks so natural it’s as if Hinata herself came out of the manga pages. I definitely give this cosplayer two thumbs up.
