Cowboy Bebop Cosplay: Faye Valentine & Julia (Omi Gibson | Yaya Han) Cosplay 06 JUN 2010

Cosplay Sundae time once again and this time we have two cosplay powerhouses teaming up to bring us a fantastic Cowboy Bebop-themed showing, none other than Yaya Han and Omi Gibson!

Bad Girls: Yaya Han as Faye Valentine and Omi Gibson as Julia

Cowboy Bebop is one of those legendary anime classics, a series that every anime fan really should make the effort of seeing and certainly one of my all time favourite series. Although Spike Spiegel tended to steal most of the limelight, there was still plenty of spotlight left for the more than capable member of the bounty hunter team, Faye Valentine, a talented pilot with a penchant for stealing things, gambling, drinking, teasing men and unnecessary violence.  Oh, and an almost indomitable spirit to boot!

Julia on the other hand wasn’t afforded a whole lot of screen time and met an untimely death at the end of it all, but as the story revealed, she, possibly a former Syndicate member herself, was a pivotal character in the lives of Spike and Vicious, and in fact turned out to be pretty much one of the main driving points for the whole series itself.

Two strong, action-orientated women in the world of Cowboy Bebop then.

So needless to say, you’re going to need some pretty big feet to fill those big shoes and who better to take on the role of Faye Valentine than the American-based cosplayer extraordinaire, Yaya Han, a lady whose varied award-winning cosplays have featured a number of times on this site already. Beside her and taking on the black clad figure of Julia is Omi Gibson, a rising and enigmatic force in the world of Cosplay following her striking Revi of Black Lagoon notoriety.

And as you can see, these two nail down the characters perfectly!

Attitude. It literally drips from these two. Though that said, anyone dressing in such a tight-fitting, unbreathing costume as Omi would be dripping buckets anyway...
