GUMI Megpoid Cosplay – Difficult Love/Nankai Renai

Nankai Renai is a song by GUMI, one of my favourite vocaloids. The song is about a difficult love. This was my first time expressing more sad expressions in cosplay.

I really love this cosplay. Of course, I worked with a team.

None of these photos are edited. I attended cosplayers Hana and Baozi’s panel on posing for cosplay the other week and they said that research is very important. Research on finding a suitable location to shoot and also expressing what the character feels in the source material. Time of day to shoot is also important, in which they recommended cosplaying in the evening.

That’s why I chose a dock as the location during a time that was not hot. I tried to replicate some of the poses from the music video, and the photographer was great with directing the shots.

The shots wouldn’t look nearly as good if it weren’t for my makeup artist! So I am very, very thankful to my team, and also to my readers for supporting me in my cosplay hobby! ^_^

White Blood Cell/Neutrophil is a character in the anime, Cells at Work! It’s an ongoing Summer 2018 anime.

I re-used the wig from an older cosplay.

Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name Cosplay

I cosplayed as Mitsuha from Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name for a short time at the Summer Festival. A wig would be too hot in this weather, so I didn’t wear one. I didn’t spend any money on this cosplay!

Click here if you want to see old cosplay photos of Mitsuha in a navy skirt.

My Hero Academia – Inko Midoriya Cosplay

Inko Midoriya is the mother of Izuku (Deku), the protagonist of My Hero Academia.

I’ve cosplayed as high school girls (even though I’ve graduated from high school some years ago), as boys, and now I’ve cosplayed as a mother. I’ve even cosplayed as characters I don’t like before!

Fun fact: I sewed the apron!

Edit: It was brought to my attention that the wig for my Inko cosplay is not dark green enough. I completely agree, but I also wanted to say that the wig was originally used in an earlier cosplay. I didn’t spend a single cent on this cosplay.

Cosplays: Gumi & Koushi

I cosplayed as Gumi again from her song, Nankai Ren’ai (Difficult Love). It’s a cute song about liking a boy.

I also cosplayed as Koushi again from Haikyuu!! because I realized I never took a photo of the shorts.

Tokyo Ghoul – Kaneki Cosplay

I cosplayed as Kaneki with the mask and white hair in December of last year (you can see those photos here). I cosplayed as him again and I like these new photos more. Kaneki Ken is from the anime, Tokyo Ghoul.

His black hair turned white after experiencing tremendous stress. I wrote about that in my Tokyo Ghoul Final Episode review/impressions post.
