Tite Kubo’s hugely popular Bleach is the inspiration for this week’s cosplay attempt, with the slit-eyed, always smiling betrayer Gin Ichimaru brought to life through the impressive gender-crossing efforts of cosplayer Sera.
One of the early major antagonists in Bleach was one Gin Ichimaru, shinigami captain of the 3rd Division in the Gotei 13, until he betrayed Soul Society and went on to become a commander in Sosuke Aizen’s army.
However, this formidable fighter’s initial betrayal is shown to have been a double bluff, in order to gain access to Aizen in an attempt to put a stop to his ambitions. Not that he was particularly successful if you consider this cost him his life!
And in case you were wondering, his zanpakuto was named Shinso.
