Self-introduction of the Cosplayers My girlfriend told me to write in the introduction: "I love her so much!" Guess that is the most important thing about us. Apart from that we are 26 and 22 years old, still university students, are a couple for a little over a year and share a flat in a small town in Germany.

Cosplay Performance of Hotaru and Kyouya’s:

Hotaru and Kyouya

Comments from the cosplayers: Seregil (Kyouya) and Alec (Hotaru) from Nightrunner
Nightrunner is an amazing fantasy book series by Lynn Flewelling, and really special to us, since we got to know each other because of these books. We got in contact because we both liked it, and immediately planned to cosplay this couple. Finally we were able to sew the costumes and they mean so much to us!

Hotaru and Kyouya

Comments from the cosplayers: Lavi (Kyouya) and Kanda (Hotaru) from D.Gray-man
long planned costume. We decided we wanted to cosplay those two, long before we were a couple, and now that we finished those costumes it was even more awesome to cosplay as them!

Hotaru and Kyouya

Comments from the cosplayers: Cloud (Hotaru) and Aerith (Kyouya) from Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children
FF7 has always taken a special place in both our lifes, so we just HAD to cosplay from this series.

Comments from the cosplayers: Dios (Kyouya) and Utena (Hotaru) from Utena
We decided on this costume because Hotaru always wanted to be a princess, and now, finally found her prince ^_-

Here’s a simple interview:

Q: How did you know this contest? Is it easy to join in or do you have any advice for it? Since there will be many other contests held here, which theme do you most expect to see later?

We found about this contest on DeviantArt, we’d like to see more contests possibly based on different seasons, events etc.

Q: What’s your favorite cosplay theme? And what’s your best cosplay performance?

War because most war outfits are really cool!! Mina has done Miku Eager Love Revenge version @ Hyper Japan 2011 on stage before (photo here)

Q: What do you think about cosplay? Share us something good and bad on this performance art in your opinion.

Changed our lives completely – it means a lot to us and we dedicate most our time on it!
You can display the character in real life, you are the character and therefore you can express the emotions the character has. The character you cosplay must be someone you love, that’s what we think – so you would want to portray the character well! You don’t need to be yourself but be the character and this will give a lot of people we think more confidence. We think the only bad thing in cosplay is the expense.. It is a VERY expensive hobby!

Q: We will be interested in knowing some difficulties you met while cosplay. And how did you overcome them?

We think making the costumes itself, so far we never used patterns while making costumes so it is difficult and often make a lot of mistakes, but if you just keep trying – eventually you’ll get it right ! But sometimes costumes are very easy and you can just buy the clothes! Also we think make up – we spend a lot of time doing make up as we believe we’re full of flaws unlike the character so we must look like them by using lots of make up for e.g. better skin, bigger eyes, sharper face etc. looking at other cosplayers make up helps a lot too. Making props are usually difficult too, but it’s fun so we finish it quick! Also lots of encouragement from friends supports us always!

Daily Cosplay – xxxHolic Ichihara Yuuko Cosplay

xxxHolic Ichihara Yuuko Cosplay

This is a great work done by EllaVampirella – xxxHolic Ichihara Yuuko Cosplay. This cosplay girl comes from Germany. Other pictures in her gallery show you the full body look. But I especially feel fascinated about this one. Long black hair with exquisite makeup makes her look great. The necklace is chic, right? Except the vivid look, EllaVampirella makes herself faithful to what we see from the original manga. So, you will also applaud for her?
