First of all: this cosplay of Catherine is absolutely gorgeous. I had no chance to play the game when I still had my PS3, but from game art I’ve see, this cosplay is right on spot. The beautiful cosplayer doing this is Elian, (check out her DeviantArt account here) she is from Moscow, Russia. She’s a future lawyer and want to see Japan some day, but in the meantime she enjoys making costumes from her favourite anime and Japanese games. The photos are taken by Taya, here’s her DeviantArt page too.
Funny thing, when I first found this cosplay and took a look at the photographer, she happened to be studying in Moscow’s British High School of Design & Art on Graphic Design program, and I began studying AT THE VERY SAME school just a week ago, only she’s in full enrolment and I am at preparation 6 month long courses. We might even meet in a corridor or something, isn’t that funny how small the world is? (more…)

Another gaming cosplay, this time it’s a Wizard (Elyos) character from Aion fantasy MMORPG by Anita Lust, a cosplayer from Ukraine. Besides cosplaying, Anita is into anime and she also sews costumes for sale for other cosplayers – check Anita Lust’s viantArt page here. I was shocked to learn that people are actually telling her to stop cosplaying because she has an 8-year old daughter and therefore is “old”. I certainly hope she’ll keep ignoring those morons, because, I must say, there is no “awesome” or “amazing” in this post’s title only because I already called most of the previous posts that and it looks kinda repeated. But Anita’s cosplay IS amazing too. I especially like the background setting author choose for this photo set, it’s bright and sunny, and compliments the costume very well. The photos themselves are by Eva.

Kamael is a race in an MMORPG Lineage II, and they are distinguished from light and dark elves by their unusual appearance – each individual bearing a single wing. This cosplay looks very well done, the costumes show Salamander Skin light armor D-grade set, and i must say, they are the best Kamaels out there I’ve seen so far. And the most pleasant part for me is that the both cosplayers are Russians, lol! Kamael-male is done by ErikDesler - whose real name is Pavel – and Kamael-female is Leetah, who has a 6-years old kid and “a rather demanding job”, so she has not much time to spent on her cosplaying projects. Both cosplayers live in Moscow, the costumes were each made by their respective owner, with wings and rapiers made by them together. Photosets are by JustMoolti (who is also living in Moscow) and by Tis. (more…)

I believe, this kind of costumes are called “fur cosplay”, but i am not a specialist. Though, even i can see how awesome this costume is – i love the moogle’s ears most – and looking at the photos i can help but keep wondering, how hard in fact it was to make a costume like this come to life. Good thing it seems to be autumn when this photo shoot has been taken, or i bet it would be very hot in all that fur, lol!
Anyway, this amazing costume was made by Semashke, a Lithuanian cosplayer currently living in UK, and the costume participated in NowJapan 2011 in Vilnius and Russian Animatsuri 2011 photo cosplay contest, and won 3 prizes (not surprisingly!). The Moogle character is actually only looking like a bunny, in fact Moogles are fantasy creatures presented in most Final Fantasy games. Semashke says she chose one from FFXII because it looks more realistic. The photos are by Anna Ozerova and Alexander Schneider ([c:c:c] team).

I’ve stumbled upon a single picture of this costume, loved it and practically had to dig all over the Internets for an hour to find who the model is and where might be other photos of this costume. So, without further ado – a cosplay of Dragona Online (a fantasy MMO that went out of business in the West recently) scout character by Christine Jean Blardony, aka Tin or Blardz from Philippines, an active cosplayer of both anime and k-pop cosplays/events. Besides that, she’s a hardcore PS2 gamer, a dancer and – whoa! – a violinist. Christine is taking part in H3AT, a female cover group of a South Korean boy band 2PM and a hiphop dance crew. I dunno where she even finds enough time to create such nice costumes between all of that – i especially like the wings in this one. Here’s Christin’s Facebook fan page, give it ago. As for the pictures, they are from different photo sessions are the credits belong to Paolo Panganiban, IAmGem and Imagine Photography and Akihiko Photography. A fun fact: i think, the last photographer had done something wrong with their camera, because the pictures were marked as shot at November 30, 1999 – when Christine was just 7 years old, lol!

I’m sure you’ve seen part of this already, an Iron Man helmet made out of a grapefruit for a cat – you might have seen it on Kotaku and a hundred of other blogs – BUT THERE’S MORE PICS IN THAT SET!!! Yes, I AM screaming, because everyone just reposting one single piece of that amazing cat cosplay, where there are many more! There are two other similar “costumes” consisting of fruity “helmets”. One of those even has a backpack made out of a lemon! And another one is even put on a tiny dog! Yes, a tiny dog, and saw someone at Kotaku’s post commenting that it would be great to make a cosplay like that for a dog – and here it is, it WAS actually made in the first place! The photo set I found is made like a single very long picture, so i put it behind the cut. It was made by someone speaking Chinese and watermarked with this address – weibo.com/ama0711 (Chinese Twitter-like platform), but when I tried to go there, I think it offered me to register a new account. Whoever this ama0711 is, they are awesome and totally rule!

TamaRPG (aka Mars-Cat) is a graphic designer and cosplayer from Thailand. She’s a fan of anime, manga (lots of manga, in fact), video and online games and, obviously, of S4 League which is an online multiplayer anime shooter game, published by Alaplaya in Western countries. The costume TamaRPG has made shows one of the characters available to players in S4 League and looks really awesome.

I’ve already wrote about Nebulaluben - who is a wonderful cosplayer from Madrid, Spain – and her SW:TOR-themed cosplay of Grand Master Jedi Satele Shan. This Tali’Zorah cosplay is so damn amazing, I am at a loss of words. Not only the costume itself is pretty cool, but some of the images has been photoshopped to include a background resembling the game’s environment. And as someone with Photoshop skills i can say it’s a nice piece of work! The credits for this cosplay are as following: the costume is by Nebulaluben and Erikku-kun (check out their Facebook page), photo and editing by Hidrico. Click images for larger versions. (more…)

I’m pretty sure there are very few people who haven’t heard of the Nyan Cat meme, but here’s something new – a Nyan Cat cosplay! These amazing colourful costume and make-up are really hitting the point, if Nyan Cat would’ve ever made it to manga or anime, i imagine that’s pretty much how she would’ve looked like. The Nyan Cat costume was made by Anshie, photos shot by ChikakoUchiha. Anshie is not only a German cosplayer, but also a fellow gamer and she even works as a video game tester. Be sure to visit Anshie’s Facebook page, Anshie’s cosplay website or her DeviantArt account - or all of them, because there are lots of other cool cosplay project to check out.

First of all, i must say that this cosplay of is Shining Blade from Guild Wars 2 absolutely amazing! The level of details on every part of the costume and its overall design is stunning. And all of this thanks to one person – Enayla, a computer science student from New York, who is into cosplaying in her spare time. Make sure to give a Like to Enayla’s Facebook page if you have a Facebook account, because she makes really cool costumes. Part on these photos – the ones agains interior backdrop - were shot by Darkain Multimedia at Fanime 2012, and the other part – the ones in a field – were shot by Shinichi Al Hayashi. Both the photographers are with Cosplay Photographers. (more…)

This is the best cat cosplay I’ve ever seen! Here’s the story: the cat’s name is Guagua (“瓜瓜”) and it was Guagua’s birthday celebration for which its owner, a user named toshiya86 from a Chinese blogging service Weibo (to see her page, unfortunately, you have to be registered in Weibo) drew these characters on cardboard.
I personally don’t think that sticking a cat’s head into dozens of small holes in cardboard pieces is the best birthday present ever, but the resulting pictures are awesome nonetheless. Characters and amine included in this awesome “cosplay” – Christine Mi, Dino, Gold Sparkle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, QB, Green Drive, the Old Anchor, Gintama and Naruto.

Well, since I’m now trying to find time and play Star Wars: The Old Republic, here’s an SW:TOR-themed cosplay for! Grand Master Jedi Satele Shan is impersonated by Nebulaluben, a wonderful cosplayer from Madrid, Spain. I think her Satele Shan looks just like the “real” one, and the costume is wonderfully accurate too. Another character appearing on the photos is a Sith Pureblood (based on Vindican, according to costume’s author) and he’s cosplayed by Erikku-kun, Nebulalunen’s spouse. I think it’s very cool that people are sharing such a hobby, i wish my husband shared one of mine too lol :) Anyway, they both have a page at Facebook, give it a look. And the photos themselves were taken by Jesús Clares. Now, that all the appropriate credits are given, enjoy the pics ;) (more…)

Crystal Graziano is a beautiful cosplayer from South California, USA who is currently supported by Red 5 Studios to officially cosplay their free to play MMO, FireFall. Crystal’s contract with Red 5 included support for her non-Firefall projects, so this is the first one she made with their support. Venus is a character from Metal Gear Acid 2, an assassin – a kind of girl you would call “deadly hot”, if you see what i mean :)
Crystal Graziano took 1st places in both Konami’s Metal Gear Solid cosplay contest at San Diego Comic Con 2010 and Tokyo Game Show 2010, and her latest award was Best Construction at Anime Conji 2011. No wonder, with great costumes like these! (more…)

For all my female readers ;) I guess, i should have posted some hot topless guys after that sexy Tasha’s Sheryl Nome cosplay – for the sake of being fair to everyone – but my husband is occasionally stalking this blog, sooo…. not just yet, lol :) Okay, this post shows off some cool stuff made by Ludo Erendrym, a French cosplayer who does both anime and game cosplays. I totally dig the guy! Male cosplayers often make much simpler costumes than females and don’t bother with make-up to fit into a chosen character, but Erendrym’s characters look cool even without make-up. And when he’s out making costumes, well… did i said he’s awesome? Well, now i certainly did :)
