Until now, Cosplay Gen
has been gathering quite a lot of amazing friends, and we must admit that we are glad for having known them. One such friend is Z3LL
, a cosplay photographer from The Philippines
, who has already an experience of several years in this hobby, meeting a lot of enthusiastic cosplayers; the result of such encounters is not only beautiful photos, but also very nice memories and friendships. [..]
You might remember our Alice in Steampunkland feature interview from the pilot issue of the Cosplay Gen magazine. Well here it is in its full glory, the interview with 3 of the group members (Bandit Ying, Dan The Farmer and Cvy), to which we also added a few photos of the more complete Alice in Steampunkland team , counting up to 13 members. It’s really great to see such an amazing original project brought to life by talented cosplayers. [..]

A very talented cosplayer, Skye is already known among the cosplay fans for her beautifully portrayed characters. Her characters of choice are mostly sensual and charming women, such as Soah from The Bride of the Water God, Himawari from xxxHolic or Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier.
Singapore really stands out as far as the cosplay community goes, and for such a small state it’s really packed with talented cosplayers. Jesuke is one of these talents, remarkable in the way in which she succeeds in getting into the skin of the characters she’s portraying.
