Kill la Kill Cosplay: Ryuko Matoi (Mostflogged) Cosplay 19 NOV 2013

American cosplayer Jenni, better known by her handle of Mostflogged, has featured in some high profile cosplay shoots before, like her photos taken with one of the queens of American cosplay, Yaya Han. Never mind those though, this girl sure is busy in the world of cosplay (as evidenced by her DeviantArt and ACP profiles), both in terms of wearing costumes as well as actually making them!

For this particular photo shoot she’s gone and channeled one of the more crazy anime series currently on the go, choosing to bring to life Ryuko Matoi of Kill la Kill!

Kill la Kill is set at Honnouji Academy, a fictional high school in Tokyo Bay set in post-apocalyptic Japan that is dominated by its fearsome student council, led by Satsuki Kiryuin. The council members wear special uniforms called Goku Uniforms that grant them superhuman abilities, which they use to oppress the rest of the school’s students and staff. Ryuko Matoi, a 17-year-old vagrant schoolgirl wielding half a scissor-shaped longsword, transfers to Honnouji Academy in search of the owner of the other half of the scissor blade, the person who killed her father.

Defeated by the council after interrogating Satsuki over the killer’s identity and whereabouts, Ryuko comes across a sentient sailor uniform she names Senketsu, who puts himself on Ryuko. Using Senketsu’s special abilities, Ryuko stands up against Satsuki and her henchmen, the Four Heavenly Kings, to liberate Honnouji Academy from their iron grip and find out the truth behind her father’s murder.

Uncanny X-Force Cosplay: Psylocke (Mostflogged) Cosplay 25 NOV 2012

American cosplayer Jenni, better known by her handle of Mostflogged, has featured in some high profile cosplay shoots before, like her photos taken with the current queen of American cosplay, Yaya Han. Never mind those though, this girl sure is busy in the world of cosplay (as evidenced by her DeviantArt and ACP profiles), both in terms of wearing costumes as well as actually making them!

For this particular shoot, Jenni turns to the new Uncanny X-Force line, picking out the delectably deadly Psylocke as her character of choice!

Over the years various writers have certainly put her character through the wringer, but at the start of it all, creator Chris Claremont’s precognitive ninja played supporting character to her fraternal twin brother, Captain Britain, even substituting every now and then for him. Later on she became the mutant superheroine Psylocke, who developed telepathic abilities and then later acquired Jean’s Grey’s telekinesis.

Known for her psychic blades, Psylocke is nevertheless a warrior who can really get into your head!

In her most recent outing, following the aftermath of Second Coming, Psylocke (along with Deadpool, Fantomex, and Archangel) is selected by Wolverine to be a member of the new X-Force, the sole condition being that no one must learn of the team’s existence. Psylocke has been seen using her telepathy to help Warren control the “Archangel” persona in his mind, which has led to the two rekindling their previous relationship. The team’s first mission is to locate and kill Apocalypse, who has been reborn. After the events of SCHISM, while Psylocke has decided to stay on Utopia with Cyclops’ team, she also secretly stays on X-Force to help whenever Wolverine requests. Cyclops also places Psylocke in charge of a new X-Men Security team, asking her to be his spy and spy-hunter.

During the Dark Angel Saga, the Jean Grey of the Age of Apocalypse universe opened up Psylocke’s mind, allowing her to tap into a previously untapped power. Writer Rick Remender confirms that Psylocke is now an Omega Level telepath. She also willingly gives up her capability to feel sorrow and regret as part of a bargain to save Fantomex from death at the hands of Skinlessman.
