It’s Melbourne based duo, Chibi Mage & Koneko Chan. These young ladies are virtual chameleons with many a varied cosplay spanning anime, movie and video games.

COSPLAYER OF THE MONTH MAY 2016: NEKO CHAOS COSPLAY

Time for another Cosplayer Of The Month update…and this month it’s none other than Neko Chaos Cosplay! Neko has done some incredibly awesome cosplays from her sexy Pikachu, Sinon from SAO II, Shimakaze from KanColle and more. Having mentioned Shimakaze, you need to check it out below…it’s so amazing and on point!

Neko is one cosplayer who always brings imaginative ideas to the genre with a great degree of skill. If you haven’t had a chance, check out her Facebook page (LINK) and I’ve also linked to photographer Neil Creek’s photoshoots with her.

Cosplayer Of The Month April 2016: Vampy Bit Me!

Remember a while ago I mentioned that I was going to introduce a new cosplay segment? Well, here it is!! Presenting the latest addition to japandaman.com, the Cosplayer of the Month! I thought for a while which cosplayer I should spotlight first and I couldn’t go past my all time favourite number one cosplayer, Vampy Bit Me!

I love her creations, they’re so incredibly diverse with a level of detail not seen everywhere. From video game vixens to anime and Japanese pop culture characters, Vampy knows no bounds and it clearly shows with her creative skill. IMO, she also does the BEST Morrigan cosplay I’ve ever seen. I should add that Morrigan from the Darkstalkers series is my all time favourite character from anywhere!

And on a side note, I was lucky enough to meet Vampy (Linda Le) at Tokyo Game Show 2014. She generously gave me 5 minutes of her time for a quick interview which I’ve included below, along with a gallery of some her cosplays and model shots which I really like!
