Fun Thing about Cosplaying

It was originated in Japan but is now famous all over the world that you can find conventions where you can join in competitions and such.

Miku Hatsune of Vocaloid

Hatsune Miku is the first installment in the Vocaloid Character Vocal Series released on August 31, 2007. The name of the title and the character of the software was chosen by combining Hatsu , Ne , and Miku . The data for the voice was created by actually sampling the voice of Saki Fujita, a Japanese voice actress. Unlike general purpose speech synthesizers, the software is tuned to create J-pop songs commonly heard in anime, but it is possible to create songs from other genres.

In this picture you can see Miku Hatsune with her flashy but cute costume. Miku Hatsune cosplay consists of a Long Light Blue Wig with 2 pieces of headwear, and of course her uniform and shoes.

Angelina (Madam Red) of Kuroshitsuji

Madame Red, born Angelina Durless, is Ciel's aunt. As her title suggests, she is known for her red appearance and clothing. Initially she hated her red hair, which she inherited from her father, until Ciel's father stated he liked it. Angelina fell in love with him and became distraught when she found her sister was marrying him. Madame Red later married Baron Barnett, who treats her lovingly and gently, stating that he does not mind that she harbors feelings for another.

Madam Red is really stylish and elegant, ne? Because of this, many cosplayers are trying to cosplay this anime character because of her unbeatable elegance. You wonder why she's always all-red? It's obvious in her name! LOL.

Her costume consists of a short red wig, red summer hat (optional), red boots and a long red dress.

Lightning of Final Fantasy XIII

A former sergeant of the Cocoon military, Lightning sought the fal'Cie of Pulse in order to ask it to save her sister Serah, whom the fal'Cie had turned into a l'Cie. However, much to her dismay, Lightning was turned into a l'Cie herself. Her l'Cie mark is in the center of her chest. Lightning has long strawberry blonde hair and is 177 cm tall (5'9").

For me, lightning is the coolest girl character in Final Fantasy not because of her skills but because of her costume. Yes! I super love her costume. I love how her costume is so warrior-like that if you wear this costume (with her weapon) you may feel like living in another world.

Lightning cosplay consists of a pink-like layered hair, her costume,skirt, gloves, bag, and boots.

Suigintou of Rozen Maiden

Suigintou is the first of the Rozen Maiden collection. Her desire to win the Alice Game is the strongest of all the dolls, and is primarily driven by her wish to gain the attention of their "Father", the fantastic dollmaker Rozen. Sadistic, spiteful, and arrogant (all due to her spectacular Superiority complex), Suigintou has no inhibitions when it comes to the Alice Game. She will use any method available to her, regardless of how brutal it may be, to reach victory. Although she avoids socializing with all of her sister dolls, she has a particularly bitter hatred for Shinku.

Wanna wear your anime cosplay to a Halloween party? Then this is the best costume for you! Well, it doesn't necessarily mean that you may only wear it during Halloween. I mean, it's creepy right? With all that white hair and crucifix on her dress. This costume is the best when the other characters of Rozen Maiden are present. That's cool, ne? :)

This cosplay consists of a long white wig, headress, and shoes with a purple rose on it.

Sakura Kinomoto of Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle

Sakura Kinomoto is a fictional character, the heroine of Clamp's manga series Cardcaptor Sakura. In the English anime adaptation of the series, Cardcaptors, her name is changed to Sakura Avalon.

By just seeing the photo, you can say that the costume costs a lot. But if you want to cosplay this badly then you have no choice but to pay a lot of money for it.

The costume consists of a short brown hair, headress, costume(white or classic or casual), shoes and a staff (if you want but it costs a lot).

Misaki Ayuzawa of Kaichou wa Maid-sama

Misaki is the heroine of Kaichou wa Maid-sama!. She lives alone with her mother and her younger sister Suzuna, because her father abandoned them, leaving them with a huge debt. Because of her father's actions, she has a deep hatred for most boys.

Are you a fan of Kaichou wa Maid-sama and you want to be paired badly with Usui-kun? (LOL) Then this is the right cosplay for you! >:) I highly recommend it because it's too cute. Aren't maids so cute?

The costume consists of a black layered wig, maid headwear, neck wear, maid costume, and maid shoes.

Yuki Cross of Vampire Knight

Yuki Cross is the female protagonist of Vampire Knight. The adopted daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, Yuki is a first year student and a member of the school's disciplinary committee, which means secretly acting as a Guardian for Cross Academy by monitoring and protecting the Day Class from the Night Class. She is generally a cheerful and comedic character, but has a fear of vampires that means she rarely leaves the Cross Academy grounds on her own.She wields the Artemis Rod, the anti-vampire weapon which later transforms into a scythe.

Yuki Cross is also on the top anime character cosplayed by many cosplayers all over the world. Her uniform, the day class uniform is pretty impressive because of the unique black and white pattern.

The costume consists of a brown short wig, uniform, and shoes.

Chii of Chobits

A "chobit," a technologically advanced persocom rumored to possess true machine intelligence, with the ability to feel emotions and act on her own will, unlike other persocoms. Hideki finds her in a pile of trash as he makes his way home from work one night. Upon turning her on, she is only able to say the word "chi," remembers nothing of her past life, and is unable to perform even simple tasks. Because of this, Hideki names her Chi and undertakes teaching her how to function. Chi reads a series of children's picture books, A City with No People, about a character searching for the "person just for me," which were written pseudonymously by Chitose Hibiya as a way of reconnecting Chi to her past self, and to guide Chi's search for love.

Don't you think that Chii's cosplay costumes are cute? Then, why don't you try cosplaying it and try being a robot? But seriously, this cosplay is not a joke. It also costs a lot because of the other accessories included in the cosplay.

The costume consists of a long blond wig, chii ears, head wear, dress and shoes.

Karin of Naruto

Karin, a former assistant to Orochimaru during his experimentation. Karin has red eyes, matching hair color and an unusual hairstyle; her hair is short and unkempt on one side, and long and combed on the other. She tends to fluctuate between two dynamic personalities, appearing tough and in control when Suigetsu or Jugo are present and highly flirtatious when she is alone with Sasuke. Karin has an unhealthy obsession with Sasuke; she goes so far as to keep one of his battered, sweat-drenched shirts for herself and plans to "ravage" him after the rest of the team has fallen asleep. Karin's special ability allows her to find and track specific individuals through chakra. She is able to do so over long distances and can even notice subtle changes in an individual's chakra.

Do you want to be Karin and be sexy and moody just like her? It shows that not all megane type (glasses type) are boring, right? Glasses also adds appeal to the cosplayer and while you're at it why don't you strike a sexy pose just like on the picture?

The costume consists of a red wig, glasses, pink coat, shorts and shoes.

Saber of Fate Stay Night

Saber is Shiro's Servant. Loyal, independent, and reserved, Saber acts coldly but is actually suppressing her emotions to focus on her goals. Her class is considered the "Most Outstanding", with excellent ratings in all categories. Since her Master cannot effectively provide her with Mana, she minimizes her activity to preserve her energy. Saber is frustrated by Shiro's "protective" tendencies, believing his erratic and reckless behavior will jeopardize her chances of winning the Holy Grail War. Her full name is Arturia Pendragon. She is King Arthur, a former ruler of Britain, who gives up her humanity for the sake of her country. Before her last breath, she appeals to the world; in exchange for services as a Heroic Spirit, she asks to be given an opportunity to relive her life, where someone more suitable and effective would lead Britain in her stead. She is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi in the anime adaptation, and by Kate Higgins in the English adaptation.

Do you want to look cool by looking like a french warrior? ( Don't know if she really looks like a french warrior but to me she really looks like one) If yes, then you'll have fun cosplaying Saber because of the costume quality which is 100 percent perfect.

The costume consists of a short blonde wig, armor/dress(?), sword( if you want), and shoes.

C.C. of Code Geass

C.C. is an immortal girl who bestows the power of Geass upon Lelouch under the condition he grants her greatest wish. She oversees Lelouch's activities and occasionally assists in his plans in order to ensure that he remains alive to fulfill their contract.
