Get a taste for what Bungie Studios actually looks like with this tour by Penny Arcade!
Father of the Year award goes to…this dude.
The 8th or Octavo Espada, Szayelaporro represents the “madness” aspect of death. He is an intellectual and a scientist, thinking highly of himself and has the tendency to follow his plans to the finest detail. Like Kurotsuchi Mayuri, he is quite sadistic and views others as nothing more than research material. Szayelaporro also looks down upon non-Hollows and hopes that Aizen Sosuke would kill them all.
An impressive cosplay of one of the creepiest characters in Bleach. I had to adjust the photo a little because the one I received was in poor quality. I hope the cosplayer doesn’t mind! Thanks to Shiney for sending this in!

In the anime, Ruri began calling Kosaka Kyosuke “Nii-san” because of two reasons: one is her wish to have an older brother and the other is simply to annoy Kosaka Kirino. However, it was also revealed that she was hinting some affection towards Kyosuke, as she later gives him a kiss on the cheek. In the light novels, Kuroneko became Kyosuke’s first lover by the seventh volume, but they broke up in the very next book.
There’s no way Kuroneko is this cute! But she is! Another awesome cosplay from Comiket 81! I really love this maid outfit version of her more than her gothic one. Thanks again to Miki for sending this in!

The captain of the 10th Division, Hitsugaya Toushirou is considered to be a prodigy and became the youngest captain in the history of Soul Society. He is quite sharp, as he was one of the first to suspected Aizen Sousuke of foul play, as well as Ichimaru Gin of being a conspirator. Although he is short-tempered and irritable, Hitsugaya is actually very mature and does not like others goofing off or drawing unneeded attention.
Finally got to feature an Aizen cosplayer, but he has his back to the camera! Oh well, I guess I just need to research for more Bleach cosplays soon. Thanks again to Fumiki for sending this in!
EDIT: Thanks to Random Hero 118 for correcting me that he looks more like Ichimaru Gin than Hitsugaya Toushirou!

(Wanna meet Nobuyuki Takahash, the man who coined the term cosplay ? Go to 1:50 )
Well, that depends. Do you mean the term cosplay or the act of cosplay ?
Cosplay in term of dressing as a known character probably has been done forever. Perhaps early cavemen made fun of a certain other caveman by imitating his walk or action. We all remember in school how maybe one nutty teacher would dress up as Abraham Lincoln or other historical figure to illustrate a point. Costuming or dressing up as someone goes back ages.
If you mean cosplay in a convention environment, well perhaps it can be pointed in modern times to WorldCon in New York City. It was 1939 and the first World Science Fiction Convention had an attendance of 200 people. Among them was Forrest J Ackerman dressed in a “futuristicostume” – a hint of today’s costuming.
More after the jump.
As sci-fi become more popular, more and more cons start popping up around the country. When Star Trek came out, cons specifically geared toward that series sprung up. Some fans would make costumes of their favorite characters. Just take a look at this Star Trek con back in New York of 1973.
So dressing up and sci-fi cons wasn’t that unusual. Sci-fi cons usually ran for a weekend. There would be a dealer room, industry guests, panels, opening ceremonies, art shows, masquerades (costume contest). Anime cons for the most part here in the United States were a offspring from the traditional sci-fi cons. I don’t know what the first anime-specific con was but I know the oldest would be A-kon started in 1990 in Dallas, TX.
Oh, the term itself ? Nobuyuki Takahashi coined the term when he attended WorldCon in 1984. The documentary “Almost Famous” there’s a segment (1:50 segment) where he talks about how he came up with the term. As it grew in popularity in Asia, and with the spread of the internet, the terminology came back to the United States. So yes, cosplay, the term is Japanese but costuming in general, well, we humans been doing that already for a long time.
In 2008 if you asked me what cosplay was, I would definitely say it was from Japanese anime/video games but ask me today and I would respond with the source material would be anything in pop culture – movies, tv, comics, anime, games, tv commercials, singers among others.
I went to my first con in the 1990s but my awareness of cosplay actually came from the internet. I would say the first con I went to with cosplay would be Anime Expo in 2008.
So how did you discover cosplay ?
She’s probably one of the booth girls at Comiket 2010 who isn’t really cosplaying any character in particular, but you have to admit, she’s got a really great smile. And she’s so cute that I can’t help but feature her on Cosplay Holic.
Anyone have any idea what company she’s representing at least? Thanks again to Tamia for suggesting this!
What is it regarding Russian girls which makes all of them thus damn sexy. Is it the rum? The radiation? That will opportunity that they could be a spy? We’re away and off to Yekaterinburg, Sverdlovskaya Oblast’, Russia to provide you with Ryoko-demon. This particular weeks Sexy Cosplay involving the Week!
An established cosplayer, Ryoko-demon really likes Disney cosplay, specifically the princesses similar to Ariel and Snow White. Apart from her passion for anything at all Disney, Ryoko can be very good at video games, cartoons and comic book cosplay. Through the spunky and nuts Harley Quinn involving Batman: The Animated Series in order to Jesse involving Pokemon’s forever doomed Team Rocket.
