Rozen Maiden: Suiseiseki 04

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

rozen maiden cosplay - suiseiseki 04In the latest manga chapters of Rozen Maiden, Suiseiseki traveled to an alternate dimension in order to protect Souseiseki’s possessed body from being destroyed by Shinku and Suigintou. Though Suiseiseki tends to avoid the Alice Game as much as possible, she forced Jun to make a contract using her sister’s ring in an attempt to revive her.

Cute cosplay from Winter Comiket! At least her costume looks warm enough to wear during winter! Thanks to Somiya again for sending me some awesome photos!

Rozen Maiden: Hinaichigo

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

imageThe 6th and most childlike doll, Hinaichigo controls strawberry vines and has the artificial spirit known as Berrybell. She is the first rozen maiden to lose in the Alice Game, but Shinku decided to make her one of her servants instead.

She loves daifuku and Hanamaru Hamburger, rather, a hamburger patty topped with fried egg in the shape of a flower. She also loves drawing and Detective Kun Kun like Shinku.

Cute cosplay! I guess now my rozen maiden cosplayers are all complete! I love the little strawberry cake she has too. Thanks for sharing this!

Rozen Maiden: Suiseiseki 03

Sunday, August 16th, 2009


Suiseiseki is the third Rozen Maiden doll and she and her twin are called “gardeners” because of their ability to communicate with plants. This ability is also extended to tending for a human’s “soul tree”, representing what a person is really like deep inside.

But most people know her for her habit of saying “desu” at the end of almost every sentence.

Beautiful cosplay! I’m always amazed at the details of the costumes of Rozen Maiden cosplayers. Really great work on this one!

Rozen Maiden: Suiseiseki 02

Monday, April 20th, 2009

One of the few dolls who oppose the Alice Game, Suiseiseki is the older twin of Souseiseki who values her sisters more than becoming Alice. She has difficulty expressing that love towards others and tends to insult them instead.

You might recognize this cosplayer from Singapore… her name is Aisling and I featured her as Hinamori Momo from Bleach back in January. This is only her second cosplay attempt, and I think it would be safe to say we hope to see more of her, yes?

Rozen Maiden Träumend: Barasuishou 02

rozen maiden träumend cosplay - barasuishou 02

The doll who’s appearance commenced the "true" beginning of the Alice Game, Barasuishou is an imitation of the 7th Rozen Maiden Doll, Kirakishou, created by Enju, Rozen’s jealous apprentice. Her eyepatch is said to seal her emotions as she is speculated to be quite insane.

Sadly, despite winning against the 6 rozen maidens, Barasuishou’s body could not handle the Rosa Mystica and her body crumbled to pieces.

Pretty cosplayer! She definitely does Barasuishou justice. And did you know that Barasuishou is actually an anime exclusive character?

Rozen Maiden Träumend: Kanaria

rozen maiden träumend cosplay - kanaria

An adorable doll with an eccentric personality, Kanaria constantly speaks in third person and loves plotting on how she will get her sisters’ Rosae Mystica, but she has yet to succeed. She is the second Rozen Maiden doll, and uses a little violin as her weapon of choice. She also has the tendency of ending her sentences with "kashira" meaning "I wonder" or "maybe"

Really cute cosplay! I found this in HongCH, the photographer’s blog. He has a ton of excellent pictures there that deals with more than just cosplay images. Thanks for sharing this, Hong!

Rozen Maiden: Suigintou 04

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

rozen maiden cosplay - suigintou 04 Suigintou is the only Rozen Maiden with wings. In the manga, it’s explained that these wings are considered to be flaws, because it created cracks on her back. However, Suigintou is considered to be one of the most powerful Rozen Maiden dolls because she has no actual need of a medium to use her powers. She is also the only doll to have been defeated and revived three times.

I got this photo from Hung, the photographer’s blog. He has a lot of exquisite collection of cosplay photos, and I’ll be sure to feature more of them when I get the chance. Thanks for sharing them, Hung!
