Inuyasha: Sesshoumaru… 3.5?

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

inuyasha cosplay - sesshoumaruI know what you’re thinking, and no, I’m not kidding.

You have to admit, this is a pretty accurate cosplay of Sesshoumaru. Maybe he looks a bit friendlier than the real Sesshoumaru, but hey, he had to be trained somehow.

It makes me wish Rin was around to see this. Thanks to Godly for sharing this photo!

Inuyasha: Sesshoumaru and Rin

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

inuyasha cosplay - sesshoumaru and rinLord of the Western Lands and rightful owner of the Tenseiga, Sesshoumaru came upon an orphaned girl named Rin after he was heavily injured by his half-brother Inuyasha. At first, Sesshoumaru shows little interest in Rin, despite her bringing him fish she stole from the outskirts of a small village she lived in and getting beaten for it.

When Koga attacks Rin’s village, she is unfortunately killed by his wolves. Sesshoumaru recognizes her scent and follows it to find her corpse. Remembering her kindness, Sesshoumaru decides to test the power of his Tenseiga and brings Rin back to life. Since then, Rin has followed Sesshoumaru wherever he went, not saying much, but always smiling for him.

Cute cosplay. Though this shows a much older Rin near the end of the series. I think she really played a part in making Sesshoumaru more compassionate. Great work!

Inuyasha: Kikyo 02

inuyasha cosplay - kikyoWhen Kikyo was still alive, she was a kind a gentle woman who had great spiritual power. She was very intelligent, but she was also very sad because she longed to be an ordinary girl without duties and powers.

This cosplayer got Kikyo’s hair better than Arisa. Although both girls still have their own appeals. Which one do you like better?

Inuyasha: Inuyasha and Sesshomaru

Half-brothers, each fulfilling his own destiny. Neither of them are right, and neither of them are wrong, for they only fight for what they believe in to be right and true.

I’m just a little sad this photo is so small and that we can’t see their faces too well. But I really like how this photo was taken. I wonder if anyone knows where to get a higher resolution of this? ;) And how do they compare to the other Inuyasha and Sesshomaru I’ve posted before?

Inuyasha: Sesshomaru

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

inuyasha cosplay - sesshomaruSesshomaru is the older half-brother of Inuyasha. He is a full fledged Inu Yokai (Dog Demon, literal translation), and is usually stoic and hard to read.In the beginning of the series, he is a ruthless enemy of Inuyasha, wanting to take the Tetsusaiga from him, but Sesshomaru soon becomes compassionate towards Jaken, his servant, and Rin, an orphaned human who showed him kindness while he was injured.

This is a really beautiful cosplay of my favorite yokai of the series! He looks so peaceful, sleeping by the tree. No wonder Rin took a liking to him the moment she saw him.

Inuyasha: Kikyo and Inuyasha

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

inuyasha cosplay - kikyo and inuyashaThis is an image I know I first found from Wikipedia, but now I can’t seem to locate the page as to where it’s located…

Anyway, moving on…

Kikyo is a priestess or “miko” in the anime and manga series “Inuyasha”. She is the keeper of the sacred Shikon no Tama (Jewel of Four Souls) who fell in love with the half - human, half - dog demon Inuyasha. The couple had planned on using the Sacred Jewel’s power to turn Inuyasha into a full - fledged human so that they could spent eternity together, but the antagonist, Naraku, tricked them into thinking that they were betrayed by each other, resulting in Kikyo’s death and Inuyasha’s fifty year slumber on the Goshinboku (Sacred Tree).

Kikyo’s Resurrection and the awakening of Inuyasha by Kikyo’s Reincarnate, Kagome, gave them a second chance to clear things up. Unfortunately, Kikyo perishes once more in the hands of Naraku, separating them once more…

Beautiful cosplay this pair! Makes me wonder if the Inuyasha in the background is the same Inuyasha I featured last July… Hm…
