Popular Korean cosplayer Tomia slaps together a very cute and dreamy Merry Nightmare cosplay for this particular shoot.
Yumeji Fujiwara, a young male student like any other, gained the power to see the aura of other people’s dreams, and is able to predict what kind of dream they will have next, after an event that occurred 10 years ago. Since then, he started to have weird dreams with cats following him for an unknown reason, where he learns thanks to the boss of the cat army, John Doe, that his body is needed to access the real world.
Merry Nightmare is the main female protagonist. A dream demon from the dreamworld, who allegedly came into the real world 10 years ago without any memory. Unlike the other dream demons, she doesn’t need to possess a human to enter the real world, as she has her own body. Searching for a door to come back to the Dreamworld, she falls on Yumeji one day, who wants to help her to find her way back home.
At first reluctant, when a daydream occurs and when she saves Yumeji’s life, she accepts his help.
She is able to break the daydreams in order to get back in the real world. She can’t eat spicy food or drink carbonated soda, but she loves doughnuts above everything and likes video games a lot. She currently works at the Tachibana restaurant. Merry’s distinct features include horizontal slit-shaped pupils similar to that of sheep and a scar on her right arm, in the same place where Yumeji used to have his.
