Hunter x Hunter: Killua Zoldyck

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

hunter x hunter cosplay - killua zoldyckSeemingly nothing more than your typical, rich, spoiled boy, Killua is actually a ruthless killer who can be extremely violent and bloodthirsty. He was tortured since birth, conditioning his body to withstand poison, electricity, and pain. Despite the troublesome childhood, he can be cheeky and mischievous. And he loves his sweets.

There’s something odd about this picture. I think someone threw a yellow tint over the original image, but I’m not entirely certain. It’s a very nice cosplay though. Great work!

Hunter x Hunter: Feitan

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

hunter x hunter cosplay - feitan One of the original members of Ryuseigai “Phantom Troupe”, Feitan is a mysterious character who resembles a true thief. He became a member and temporary head of the Genei Ryodan, aka “Phantom Troupe”. He rarely speaks but when he does, there’s always a word or two missing. And since he is proficient in reading Chinese, then Chinese is probably his first language, not Japanese.

I love this cosplayer’s eyes. The red contacts are quite dramatic, and I love the hand-painted skull on his scarf. Beautiful and most impressive cosplay! Bravo!

Hunter x Hunter: Kuroro Lucifer

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

hunter x hunter cosplay - kuroro chrollo lucifer A character who’s charismatic and charming, with no past and real family, Kuroro Lucifer (in some translations, “Chrollo Lucifer”) is perhaps the ultimate villain for an epic phenomena known as Hunter x Hunter.

Kuroro is the leader of the Genei Ryodan. He came from Ryuseigai, or “Meteor City”, the city of outcasts where people with no official records live. This is where he began to form the Genei Ryodan with 6 residences from Ryusegai.

Beautiful, clean, and simple cosplay. I really like his earrings and the book! Plus, this guy looks really good in a suit. Definitely a favorite in my book!

Hunter x Hunter: Kurapika

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

hunter x hunter cosplay - kurapikaNo matter what anyone says, this cosplay is both impressive and scary to me.

Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter, is the last living member of the Kuruta tribe. The Genei Ryodan (aka Phantom Troupe) destroyed the Kuruta Tribe because of their rare “scarlet eyes”; eyes which would change to flaming red when they are angry or emotionally agitated and a priceless treasure among body-part collectors.

Revenge prompted Kurapika to enter the Hunter Exams in order to become a Blacklist Hunter and kill all the members of Genei Ryodan. In order to hide his eyes by wearing black contact lenses.

Stunning cosplay! Kurapika is one of my favorite anime characters! A bit memorable too. I remember one time, when I went to an anime convention, a Kurapika cosplayer on stage brought a heart shaped ballon to the stage. I was one of the many otaku photographers near the stage and for whatever odd reason, the cosplayer gave the balloon to me! Haha! It was so embarrassing! But flattering too!

Excellent cosplay! And I love the blood red eyes.
