Arisa Mizuhara is honestly one of my favorite Japanese cosplayers. Along with her absolutely adorable appearance, she has really high quality costumes (I believe she makes them herself :P) that make her look absolutely kickass during the final product. Her male cosplay is great too, even better compared to real male cosplay (er, no offense to all you angry male cosplayers out there! ^^;;).
She always manages to bring out the essence of the characters she cosplays as in an very excellent way, and that’s the very reason why I just adore seeing any cosplay pictures of her compared to anything else that people take! Her site can be found here. Now, let’s take a look at one of her cosplays as Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Made by this guy. Pretty amazing how, with a few programs, something epic like this could be made. The FMA (“Rewrite“) one, in my opinion, was the best of the bunch.
What’s more amazing is that The Chipmunks learned how to sing in Japanese. 😛 Hmm, I’d like to see someone mess with the audio of “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor” (NOT an anime song to those music-illiterate) and see how that comes out as. I’m laughing just thinking about it.
I was checking out some videos of the convention that people posted on the internet since I really didn’t want to go. Driving all the way to Los Angeles, going past some really bad smelling cows from the pastures in the hot summer weather, and arriving half-dead is NOT worth seeing the Haruhi cast. Shoot me if you will. ;;
Here’s a video of cosplay at AX made by the dudes in the credits from YouTube. It’s basically a montage of cosplay on Day 2. As you can see, cosplay’s the usual, ranging from friggin’ wierd (0:30) to very awesome (at 1:12, we see some really cute cosplay of Fallen Angel Flonne. ^^). At 1:00, we see Spider Man and AbaRed… xD lol I believe Comicon is that way. *points waaaay over there*. Kidding, kidding.
In the middle of “friggin’ wierd” and “very awesome”, there’s “very disgusting” I pretty much expect that there are very… well-built men/women cosplaying as very petite loli. I believe there’s at least 6 fat 30-year-old women cosplaying as Flonne and another 30 men, of all ages, dressing in all sorts of drag. You can only see this kind of thing in California… at Anime Expo! …Maybe not.
Of course, nothing’s complete without almost over 50 Haruhi taking over a chunk of space outside, lots of dansu, and doing the Lucky Star dance which over half them didn’t even get right (lol ^^;;).
