Cosplay Sundae: Haruko Haruhara (FLCL) Cosplay 09 MAY 2010

This time, taken from the anime that you can experience a hundred times over and still never quite understand, Haruko Haruhara of FLCL infamy!

Hey, quit looking at me like that. Next thing you know, you might just be sitting on the pavement spitting those teeth out boy!

Kannaya and VirtualGirl throw together a great cosplay costume for everyone’s favorite manic, guitar-armed weirdo, namely Haruko Haruharu (and the more subdued, spaced out Mamimi Samejima) of that completely insane and over the top GAINAX classic, Kazuya Tsurumaki’s FLCL – or Furi Kuri if you must. As you can see from the pictures above and below, the girls have pretty much hit their respective characters’ look spot on, so hats off for a job well done! :)

As for Haruko herself, if you don’t know about her then you’d better hit that anime classics rack sooner than later, but for those of you who couldn’t be bothered, here’s the info download: Basically she is Mabase’s newest resident, an extraterrestrial investigator for the Galactic Space Police Brotherhood. Somehow she wangles her way into becoming the Nandaba household maid, while secretly working to find Atomsk, the most powerful space pirate in the whole known galaxy. Her bass guitar is capable of creating an N.O. portal in poor little Naota’s head, though what comes through that portal is mostly quite unexpected.

Like Medical Mechanica robots for instance. You know, the ones with television screens for heads.

As for Mamimi, well she’s a high school truant, possible pyromaniac and just happens to be Naota’s brother’s ex-girlfriend. She’s lonely, depressed, a heavy smoker and most of all – pretty much spaced out all the time. (So not real marriage material in other words!)

Hey. she's armed with a mean-looking guitar. I'd sit down if she told me to as well!
