Air: Kamio Misuzu and Kunisaki Yukito

air cosplay - kamio misuzu and kunisaki yukito When Yukito was down on his luck with his stringless puppeteering, a strange girl named Misuzu invited him to stay over at their place. He then finds out that Misuzu suffers from a mysterious illness that makes her cry uncontrollably when she thinks she’s about to make a friend.

The reason behind this illness was because Misuzu is actually the reincarnation of Kannabi no Mikoto, the last winged being Yukito’s family had been searching for a thousand years. As is her fate, Misuzu was destined to die young, for containing a cursed soul.

This is such a sad anime, but it is one of my favorites. After all, my first cosplay feature was Tono Miyagi from the same series. Nice job on this! I love the little puppet Yukito is holding too!

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…
