Cosplay Gen Updates

Jo / Blacklash (SG)0

// April 3, 2010

Burst Angel was the second anime that I watched. And the moment my eyes laid on Jo when she made her appearance, I fell in love with her. An absolute assassin, who was born for that role, tagged with a lean body illuminated with the “purple wings of death” (the tattoo) that appear when she wields Jango; she is truly appealing to my tastes.

Finally, the Cosplay Gen official website is up. We had our few bumps, but it’s finally here. Here you’ll find detailed information about the magazine, and a sneak peek into the content of the first issue. Also, on the Shop page of the website you’ll be able to pre-order the magazine online, and on the contact page is available a form where you can contact the editorial team. Spread the word and help with Cosplay Gen’s promotion; you’ll find all the necessary details by clicking the Support Us link on our website.

As you may know from our Facebook page or deviantART page already, the front cover of the pilot issue features Joker from Kuroshitsuji, cosplayed by Jesuke.

This tutorial is great for characters like Yoko Littner from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
Since I do not have much knowledge on how to go about making a proper ponytail using extensions, wefts, and stubbing I used this method that requires none of those things. This was a quick and easy fix to my high ponytail dilemma for Yoko’s hairstyle.

What It Takes to Be a Lolita4

Taking inspiration from the colorful streets of Japanese cities, I hope this column will be of help in presenting some of the ways young people from that country, physically so remote but so close to our interests and affections, choose to express their stories, telling and re-telling, discovering and re-inventing themselves, through the things they wear.

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.

When making costumes, I generally look for something that is appealing to the eyes and seems challenging to make. It is just a funny coincidence that a lot of the costumes and weapons I like come from games made by Square Enix. Haha~

In Moscow there are over 500 cosplayers and cosplay-groups, I think. Maybe even more. We got a lot of festivals, where I usually take part!

It took 3 months to build the first version in 2008, and an additional 2 weeks for an updated version in 2009. All of it is completely hand-made out of craft foam, foamboard, vinyl, and polystyrene plastic sheeting. The most difficult part was designing for comfort and mobility. I could be in it for hours and hours and not have to worry about keeling over from exhaustion. It’s really very lightweight.
