This is a cosplay music video based on this Hatsune Miku – Rolling Girl video featuring cosplayer Cvy, whom you might also remember from the pilot issue of our magazine as White Rabbit from the Alice in Steampunkland feature, Kanasaiii, another talented cosplayer from Singapore, and with photos by Adrian Song, who was also featured in our pilot issue. The result is quite impressive and you can really see that they’ve put a lot of work into making it. [..]


Cosplay Gen team is pleased to announce that the work for the second issue has begun. Thanks everyone for your support and positive feedback, which definitely stimulate us to work harder and provide you with high-quality content. Also, we would like to thank all the cosplayers who sent us submission e-mails; it was a very tough choice to make, for there are great cosplayers from which we had to choose. Due to the fact that we received a lot of messages, we will be able to answer only to those cosplayers whom we selected to be included in the magazine (the e-mails are to be sent throughout the next week). We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you understand. Nevertheless, to all cosplayers out there: go on with your beautiful work. You are all wonderful for keeping your passion alive.


Hey there! We just wanted to let you know that the magazine is out in the world and we have already sent out the pre-orders and started taking orders for the first issue. Just to remind you, we ship anywhere in the world and now our Shop page also has a preview of the magazine.

Please leave us some feedback after you get it!
