Mirror’s Edge: Faith Connors

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

mirror's edge cosplay - faith connors by miss fawn of deviant artA 24-year-old Eurasian girl who works as a “Runner” for a living, Faith Connors acts as a messenger for the revolutionary groups who avoid using telephone and email to contact each other. She opposes the totalitarian government regime the same way her parents did, and working as a Runner allowed her to work on her ideals.

Meet Miss Fawn, Deviant Artist, Fashion Designer, and Model. This is a rather impressive cosplay of Faith, and it gives you a pretty good idea as to how intense the game play can be. At least, I think so anyway. Thank you for sharing this!

D. Gray-man: Allen Walker, the Crowned Clown

Monday, March 30th, 2009

d. gray-man cosplay - allen walker, the crowned clown

A young exorcist with a quiet nature, Allen Walker was abandoned by his biological parents due to his paralysis and his supposed deformity of his left arm. It is later found out that he possessed a parasitic-type of anti-akuma weapon whose true form is known as the Crowned Clown.

Allenisya sent in her photos of her cosplays as Allen Walker via Cosplay Holic. This is one of my favorite shots of her as photographed by Hexlord. You may visit her blog in Allenisya’s D.Gray-Life to see how she created her costume and her future cosplay plans!

Thanks for your contribution, Allenisya!

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: Lelouch Lamperouge

Monday, February 16th, 2009

code geass cosplay - lelouch lamperouge / lelouch vi britanniaThe story of Code Geass revolves around the life of one man, Lelouch Lamperouge. His true identity is Lelouch vi Britannia, the 11th Prince of the Britannian Imperial Family.

Because of the assassination of his mother and the crippling of his sister, Nunally, Lelouch sought to create a better world for her. C.C. gives him the power of the Geass in order for him to command others to behave as he wishes. He also creates his alter-ego, Zero, to destroy Britannia and rebuild it.

You may recognize her as Omiya Lotus from Deviant Art… I’ve also features Omiya as Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji. Her cosplays are really amazing don’t you agree?

Ouran High School Host Club: Suou Tamaki and Ootori Kyouya 02

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

ouran high school host club cosplay - suou tamaki and ootori kyouya 02 by dees of deviantart

The “Father” and “Mother” of the Ouran Host Club, Tamaki and Kyouya have been friends since middle school, despite their differences. All of the club’s elaborate endeavors are taken cared of by Kyouya and the club usually favors Kyouya’s leadership over Tamaki’s, even though Tamaki is the Founder and Club President while Kyouya serves as vice-president.

You might recognize this cosplayer, since I featured her cosplaying as Nomiya from Honey and Clover… That’s right, she’s Dees, and this is from her Deviant Art Gallery. Great work as usual! Keep it up!

Final Fantasy X-2: Yuna 03

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - yuna 03The kind-hearted summoner changes for after the events in Final Fantasy X. Yuna still puts others’ needs before her own, but she becomes more open and direct, looking up to Rikku as a sort of role-model. She even picked up Rikku’s expressions such as “disasteriffic” and “oh, poopie!”; something the younger Yuna wouldn’t have dreamed of saying.

Yuna still seems to be one of the cosplayers’ favorite character to cosplay even though the game’s already somewhat old. I love seeing different versions of Yuna from different parts of the world.

EDIT: Thanks to Raiku for the Deviant Art Link!

I’m not sure if Koffel is the cosplayer or the photographer of this image since I found it in a random website, but if anyone would like to point me in the right direction where this is originally from, please do let me know!

Vampire Knight: Seiren

Friday, November 21st, 2008

image Little is known about Kuran Kaname’s unofficial bodyguard, Seiren. She is quiet, reserved, and obey Kaname’s orders absolutely. She is also the first to defend Kaname against any threat, barely restraining herself from killing Zero when he threatened Kaname with the Bloody Rose.

Beautiful cosplay! Loon captured Seiren’s expression perfectly. This was taken in Cosmania Philippines some time ago. Thanks also to Erving Go for the awesome photography! Great job!
