Touhou Project Cosplay: Reimu Hakurei (Chii Sakura) Cosplay 22 OCT 2013

Reimu Hakurei is one of the main characters of the Touhou Project series, having appeared in almost every game in the series. As the sole maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, she is commonly called upon (or calls it upon herself) to investigate strange occurrences throughout the world.

Japanese cosplayer Chii Sakura tackles Reimu for this particular cosplay photoshoot, though by the looks of it, she certainly is ramping up the sex appeal on this one!

In earlier games, Reimu’s spiritual abilities were highly limited. (In Highly Responsive to Prayers, she was in fact unable to harm enemies directly at all.) As time went by, however, she developed her abilities, becoming able to use the Yin-Yang Orb, special amulets, and her own (limited) spiritual power in order to fight more effectively. Sometime between Mystic Square and Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, this culminated in her developing the ability to fly under her own power. (Before then, she relied on Genjii, her turtle familiar, to fly, and in fact did not fly at all in HRtP.)

As her abilities have changed, so has Reimu’s personality. She is commonly described as easygoing, curious, at least somewhat dutiful (at least, the shrine hasn’t fallen apart due to negligence on her part), and optimistic – sometimes overly so. Her personality seems sympathetic toward many individuals; there are few people indeed who remain her rivals past the first game in which they appear (though this is not to say she doesn’t get into fights after the first meeting), and the shrine has become a moderately popular hangout for some of Gensokyo’s more interesting female individuals.

Lucky Star Cosplay: Kagami Hiiragi (Midori Kanda) Cosplay 10 OCT 2010

Cosplay Sundae gets spiritual this week by featuring the miko (or shrine maiden/priestess to you and me) Kagami Hiiragi of Lucky Star fame, brought to life by the ever popular Midori Kanda!

Visitors for the shrine. It could happen I guess.

Studious and with excellent grades, class president Kagami Hiiragi is the older fraternal twin sister of Tsukasa Hiiragi. Obsessed with her weight, Kagami counts every kilogram gained or lost, though her insatiable love for all things sweet means that you will often find her tucking into snacks like the ever present chocolate Pocky sticks!

She enjoys side-scrolling shooters as her video game genre of choice but most important of all, she enjoys her friendship with Konata and Tsukasa – even if she’s not going to admit it out aloud…

Midori Kanda dons the traditional miko dress for today’s cosplay outing, complete with wooden broom, purple wig and the all important ribbons in her hair. In other words, Nice! ;)

Damn you wind! Stop blowing leaves all over my nicely swept stairs!

I give up. This sweeping is hard work.
