Onegai My Melody: Hiiragi Keiichi 03

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Knuxie, our resident Hiiragi Keiichi, has finally cosplayed the character she writes as. I was told that she had sewn Hiiragi’s uniform herself and had to dye the wig to the right color. And yes, that’s a real violin too. I wonder if she knows how to play Hiiragi’s songs?

Very nicely done, Knuxie. I apologize if I wasn’t able to feature you sooner, and thanks for the contribution! Photo was done by Eurobeat King. This is only a thumbnail of the entire photo, by the way, so please view the original here.

Loveless: Agatsuma Soubi 03 (and Dear Daniel?!)

loveless cosplay - agatsuma soubi and dear daniel

So apparently, Soubi’s trying to feed Dear Daniel some congee. Why that is, I have no idea. Doesn’t Soubi know that Dear Daniel doesn’t even have a mouth? And he really looks like he doesn’t want any.

I think this cosplay is both impressive and funny. Something that will interest a lot of Sanriotown Members, haha~! 8) Do you like this cosplayer better than the other two?

The Legend of Zelda: Link and Princess Zelda

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

the legend of zelda cosplay - link and princess zelda It would seem that I need to go to more conventions some time this year as I am running out of cosplays to feature. :D

This one was sent in by a member of Sanriotown. I’m not certain which convention this was from, but I’ve never seen a more convincing cosplay of Link and Princess Zelda. This cosplay is from series’ latest installment, “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” on the Nintendo Wii. Just look at the beautiful details of Link’s shield and Princess Zelda’s armor! It’s absolutely breath-taking! Nice Job!

This will also be featured in my other blog. :D Thanks for visiting guys!

Black Lagoon: Revy

Friday, January 11th, 2008

black lagoon cosplay - revyContrary to popular belief (including Havel’s blog where this image was originally found), this is not Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, but rather, she is Revy from Black Lagoon. Although the two characters are quite similar to each other, the give away hint is the tattoo on her arm.

Just like Lara, Revy is quite a proficient warrior, but she is rather strong willed, using whatever means necessary to have her way. She is a murderess, and a thief and uses a lot of foul language; one could even say she has no conscience. Because her weapons of choice are her twin modified Beretta 92F’s, she is nicknamed “Two-Hands” by the people of Roanapur.

This is an absolutely awesome cosplay! Who wouldn’t want abs like that? Thanks for sharing this, Havel!

Final Fantasy X-2: Rikku 04

final fantasy x-2 cosplay - ying dong as rikkuOh my gosh, wow, I can’t believe I totally missed this!

Here I was looking for some awesome cosplays and I didn’t notice Ying Dong of Sanriotown was the legendary Rikku cosplayer!

I say legendary since I’ve seen this photo a long time ago and I always wondered who this girl was! I saw this image in Ying’s Flickr Account and read this caption:

That’s me! Full set of images can be seen at

That is so awesome, Ying! No wonder you love cosplays so much! You make such an awesome Rikku! I hope you do more cosplays and share them on Sanriotown!

Death Note: The Parody

Monday, September 17th, 2007

I’ve never posted a picture of a cosplay that looks nothing like the original anime or manga character. I only post pictures that I really like… But the cosplays that I like doesn’t necessarily have to look like the original anime.

Was that confusing? Well, let me show you a video I found on Sanriotown’s Dream Studio to give you a sample. Just let it load for a while first before playing it…

Thanks to Drift X for uploading the video. Please leave your comments for the video here.
