Red Sonja Cosplay: Red Sonja (Belle Chere) Cosplay 15 SEP 2013

The sword-slinging she-devil that is Red Sonja, gets a fantastic cosplay effort here courtesy of American cosplayer Belle Chere, who doesn’t seem to mind the cold all that much!

Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, is a fictional character, a high fantasy sword and sorcery heroine created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, and loosely based on Red Sonya of Rogatino in Robert E. Howard’s 1934 short story “The Shadow of the Vulture”. She first appeared in the Marvel Comics book Conan the Barbarian #23 (February 1973).

After the murder of her family and her rape by a Mercenary group, Sonja’s cries of revenge were answered by the red goddess Scáthach, who appeared to her and instilled within her incredible skill in terms of the handling of swords and other weapons of war, on the condition that she would never lie with a man unless he defeated her in fair combat.

This revenge-driven warrior has since become the archetypical example of the fantasy female barbarian, being fierce and stunningly beautiful, and wearing armour that resembles either a bikini or lingerie.

We can all thank artists Esteban Maroto and Boris Vallejo for that, now can’t we? ;)

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann’s lead female character, the super sexy Yoko Littner (or Yoko Ritona depending on who is spelling it), from the village Littner, is an energetic, spunky girl, not afraid of climbing straight into the thick of things, always ready for a fight and always ready to take out some more Gunmen with her fearsome electromagnetic rifle!

Already part of the resistance striving to free themselves from their oppressed existence under the Spirals, Yoko quickly joins up with Kamina and Simon after their rather sudden first encounter, to tackle the evil Beastmen Empire, under the banner of Team Dai-Gurren.

Infatuated with Kamina and also the fancy of young Simon, Yoko is probably the most mature member of the new resistance group, though as their successes continue to pile on, she also becomes the one most likely to leave this sort of life behind…
