This is a special delivery5

// September 22, 2013

In order to deliver Cosplay GEN #06 in the best possible conditions to our readers from around the world, we upgraded the shipping & delivery of this issue with an ultra protect-able & collectable cardboard box. Below are a few steps of the making of our special delivery.

Illustration creation process

We asked for help from our friend & permanent contributor manga-ka artist Cristian Darstar aka Lord Akira, to illustrate by brush a photo of Reika-san.

We also collaborated with the Cult Cat team to create the box design, the silk screening, the ribbon and the finishing touches.

    …Is that the Reika poster I see in the background?
    Mah if it is im sorta dissapointed cuz I like much more other charas she cosplayed than SnK stuff.
    Anyways it seems you guys have done a great job with #6, as always, so I hope this lil beautiful thing’s gonna have great sales.
    Any chance of bringing back old numbers, for the sake of collectors? Most likely no, but I tried asking.
