Rumble Roses Cosplay: Aigle (Rayu) Cosplay 09 SEP 2011

Japanese cosplayer Rayu dons the fur arm warmers, ear muffs, bikini and not much else as she brings to life Aigle from the all-girl wrestling game franchise, Rumble Roses.

Konami’s 2004 all girl wrestling game Rumble Roses introduced a diverse cast of female competitors, each with a good persona and a bad persona (face and heel if you like the proper wrestling terminology).

A member of a nomadic minority living on the great plains of Mongolia, Aigle’s father and brother are both grand champions in Mongolian Sumo. Just like her father and brother, Aigle too possesses great strength and she joins the Rumble Roses tournament in order to prove to them that she is also a great warrior.

However, because of her slightly under-developed body, she is a bit lacking in self-esteem and has a bit of a running gag in comparing the big boobs of her competitors to the teats of the sheep she tended back home!

As for her heel persona, not realising that being a noble warrior is for more difficult than what it sounds, Aigle starts to commit fouls and cheat more, and in order not to be ridiculed by her father or brother, she adopts the name of Great Khan with the plan of conquering the world.

And now you know.
