Ikkitousen Cosplay: Shimei Ryomou (Rei Kohinata) Cosplay 15 JUL 2012

Japanese cosplayer Rei Kohinata dons her sexy blue french maid outfit and grabs a pair of handcuffs, as she transforms herself into the enigmatic submission grappler Shimei Ryomou, from the popular Ikkitousen franchise, better known as Battle Vixens over here in the West!

Shimei Ryomou is an almost emotionless girl with a checkered background and almost unreadable personality at the moment. A master of all types of submission holds and grappling, Shimei is a dangerous fighter with a penchant for wearing French maid outfits and carrying around handcuffs wherever she goes.

She has a distinctive mole on her cheek, short blue hair, and wears an eye patch over her left eye. As it turns out, Ryomou actually possesses one of the Dragon Spirits, which resides in her left eye and which happens to just slowly be killing her – which obviously doesn’t help her unfriendly disposition much either!
