Gyakuten Saiban 2: Karuma Mei 02

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

It’s been a while since I last posted Shibata Ina’s picture. So here’s one of her cosplaying as Karuma Mei from Gyakuten Saiban 2!

gyakten saiban 2 / phoenix wright: ace attorney - justice for all cosplay - karuma mei / franziska von karma

Karuma Mei, commonly known as Franziska Von Karma, is a young prosecutor who regards Miles Edgeworth as her little brother, despite their ages. It’s of interesting note that she actually has an older sister who’s married and has a daughter, but the game hasn’t mentioned this just yet.

How did I get this info you ask? From the Court Records, of course.

Anyway, this is a really cute shot of Shibata Ina! I love her cosplays, and I hope she does more!

Final Fantasy VIII: Rinoa Heartilly

Monday, November 19th, 2007

final fantasy 8 cosplay - rinoa heartillyWhat can I say about this picture? Not much of the costume is shown but Shibata Ina makes such a good Rinoa she doesn’t even need a costume!

Outspoken and stubborn, Rinoa Heartilly is the main female character in Final Fantasy VIII. She is a popular icon for the Final Fantasy universe being the “cute girl-next-door” type instead of the usual “gorgeous” females of Final Fantasy. Because of this, and the simplicity of her costume, she is often cosplayed in Anime Conventions all over the world.

Honestly? I love Shibata Ina’s version… Being Rinoa suits Shiba so well! I hope she’ll do a whole lot more cosplays in the future.

Final Fantasy X: Yuna and Tidus

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

final fantasy x cosplay - yuna and tidusNow here is a scene recreation I am familiar with… I’ve never played Final Fantasy before, but I saw this scene in a game convention. The only difference between the game scene and this one is that in the game, Tidus and Yuna were in the water at night… Here, the picture was taken during the day… Probably because the water looks really, really cold right now, what more during the night?

I think Yuna’s crying more for the fact that her beautiful cosplay costume is now all wet, than the scene recreation itself. I would cry if my photographer were to tell me I needed to get my costume ruined for the sake of a shot. T_T But that is just me… And besides, this cosplay is great! Definitely one for the books!

EDIT: Thanks again to SoL for letting me know the Yuna in this picture is Shibata Ina aka “Shiba”!
