Cosplay Sundae: Rei Ayanami (Neon Genesis Evangelion) Cosplay 05 APR 2009

Rei Ayanami

Rei Ayanami1Dark and moody is the tone for this week’s cosplay costume entry, with none other than the ever popular Rei Ayanami of the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise the subject of this shoot. Costume detail looks pretty spot on and in short, we’ve got a nice and confused, reflective Rei – just the way she’s meant to be then! So good work unknown cosplay girl! :)

For those of you who have never encountered the legendary Neon Genesis Evangelion juggernaut before, Rei is one of the three pilots employed by Nerv to pilot their Evas. A mysterious, withdrawn girl who doesn’t get along with others, doesn’t show emotions and quite simply, doesn’t seem to talk, Rei slowly begins to open up to Shinji over the course of the show and towards the end this girl without a past actually becomes quite integral to the entire plot and motivation behind the Evangelion project.

It is definitely one of those classic piece of anime works and the less said the absolute better because this is certainly one series that all those daring to call themselves anime fans need to watch at least once in their lives!
