Nicknamed the “Super Celebrity of the Heroes”, Blue Rose is a highschooler with freezing powers who still lives with her parents and makes use of her heroic feats to boost her career as a singer. She also works as a pianist in bars under her real name.

Her revealing costume, which her father disapproves of, includes advertising for Pepsi NEX, a zero calorie Pepsi available in Japan developed by Suntory, a company who took part in the experiment which successfully produced the first true blue rose through genetic engineering, hence her alias and rose-themed uniform. She is also equipped with a monowheel-snowmobile vehicle, which she propels using her powers.

Despite claiming to dislike Kotetsu, Karina develops feelings for him, which causes her much internal conflict considering the age difference. After the one year time-skip, Karina is seen reading a book about how to win a single dad’s heart; seems she hasn’t given up.

At the insistence of her sponsor company and to her distaste, Blue Rose always tells criminals “my ice is a little bit cold, but your crime has been put completely on hold!” upon apprehending them. Karina has a habit of comically retreating from fights if they get too difficult for her, an act Hero TV’s announcer dubs the “Cutie Escape”.

In the films Tiger & Bunny: the Beginning and Tiger & Bunny: the Rising, her costume’s advertising replaces the Pepsi NEX ads for standard Pepsi logos. Her sponsor company is “Titan Industry”.

No More Heroes Cosplay: Bad Girl (Tasha) Cosplay 11 SEP 2013

Tasha is a member of the extremely popular South Korean cosplay group known as the Spiral Cats, or SPCats for short. Game franchise No More Heroes is Tasha’s target of choice this time around, as she brings to life the deadly Bad Girl, bat and all!

Bad Girl is a 23-year-old assassin who lives in the basement of Destroy Stadium; her real name as well as her nationality are unknown. She is ranked 2nd in the UAA. She drinks frequently (as is evident from her refrigerator, which is filled with nothing but canned beer; the refrigerator itself has “Chiller 7” written on it as a reference to Killer 7), dresses in a style similar to that of the Sweet Lolita fashion (which directly contrasts with her murderous personality) and bludgeons cloned men dressed in S&M gear with a baseball bat. After listening about how she feels no remorse whatsoever about killing (claiming it to just be a job), Travis takes an immediate disliking to her, saying that she is not a true assassin, but a “perverted killing maniac”. In retaliation, she claims that Travis is no better than her because although she resorts to more cruel methods to killing, they both are assassins and kill who they must all the same. She attacks Travis with her baseball bat, as well as using her bat to hit gimps with enough force to turn them into living projectiles. She is not above trickery, either; should Travis approach her when she falls to her knees and begins crying, she will sweep his legs out from under him and bludgeon him to death with her bat. When heavily injured, she also spits liquor on her bat and sets it alight, increasing her damage.

After their fight, she stands with Travis’ beam katana sticking through her abdomen, refusing to give up. She continues to brutally assault Travis until he tells her he gives up, in order to make her stop her assault; she then dies on top of him, making Travis 2nd rank regardless of his forfeiture.

League of Legends Cosplay: Nidalee (Tasha) Cosplay 18 AUG 2013

Tasha is a member of the extremely popular South Korean cosplay group known as the Spiral Cats, or SPCats for short. Tackling the popular League of Legends game franchise, Tasha brings to life the bestial huntress, Nidalee!

There are few dwellers, let alone champions, residing in the blasted and dangerous lands that lie south of the Great Barrier. Much of that world still bears the scars of past Runes Wars, especially the mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. The champion known as Nidalee was only a young girl travelling with her treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious disease.

As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful innocence and a fortunate naivete caused her to appeal to the beasts of that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the dense wilds, evolving beyond both her human physiology and her feline affectation. On one pivotal day in her life, standing over the torn remnants of a Noxian squad of woodcutters, Nidalee chose to rejoin the so-called civilized world, to fight in the League of Legends so as to protect the vast woods from both Demacia and Noxus.

Nidalee was taught to fight by her feline family, battling viciously with tooth and nail. Something in her feline ways may draw you to her, but remember that she is no pussycat.

World of Warcraft Cosplay: Alexstrasza (Tasha) Cosplay 11 AUG 2013

Tasha is a member of the extremely popular South Korean cosplay group known as the Spiral Cats, or SPCats for short. For this cosplay this asian cosplayer strips down and then suits up to bring to us the humanoid form of Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, one of the five great dragons in the World of Warcraft!

Alexstrasza the Life-Binder, Aspect of the red dragonflight, is the guardian of all life in the world of Azeroth. She was one of five great dragons chosen by the titans to be empowered with a portion of the Pantheon’s power and rule over her flight while they watched over Azeroth and its inhabitants. The titans also appointed her queen of all dragons.

As of the Cataclysm, the Dragonqueen has taken action in assembling the Dragon Aspects and their flights, renowned shaman Thrall, and many heroes of Azeroth to collect the Dragon Soul from the distant, malignant past. Its potent and effectual power is used to bring an end to the corrupted Dragon Aspect, Deathwing, and his black dragonflight, saving Azeroth from utter desolation.

For someone of her power, the Dragonqueen is surprisingly compassionate. While Ysera has always favored the dreaming races and the students of Cenarius, Alexstrasza and her flight are known for avoiding killing if at all possible (as they are the defenders of life). Alexstrasza loves all living creatures and protects them, and only those who menace the dragonflights or the world face her wrath. Alexstrasza is supremely confident in her strength and righteousness. She does not seek out combat, but destroys only to punish or renew. In battle, she observes her foes carefully before striking at those she believes are the most deserving of her wrath. Enemies who flee when their leaders are defeated are generally allowed to escape, having learned a lesson they will not soon forget.

She prefers peace and solitude, although she will defend her lands with all her power against any who threaten them without due cause. She often uses her shapechange power to appear as a creature of nature, in order to see what encroaching mortals will do before revealing her presence. Alexstrasza is devoted to all forests, and to a lesser extent all other types of green and fertile growing things. She considers all natural woodlands her home, and she need fear no beast within such lands. Although many of Azeroth’s natural creatures revere the Great Red Leviathan, she is not a goddess and does not pretend to be otherwise. Alexstrasza is rarely venerated by any particular group, although some elven communities pay her homage. Druids of the wild in particular appreciate her serene presence, considering her second in importance only to Ysera.

Gintama Cosplay Quickie: Kagura (Tasha) Cosplay 18 MAY 2012

The muscle for Odd Jobs Gin, Kagura is a young alien girl from the Yato Clan, one of the strongest and most bloodthirsty of the Amanto races. In order to escape this legacy, Kagura came to Earth, but thanks to her rather prodigious strength and fighting abilities, never mind her temper and rough around the edges demeanour, quickly found employment in the very fields she was trying to avoid!

Because of her translucent skin (in other words highly sensitive to sunlight), Kagura always carries an umbrella with her, which doubles as her weapon seeing as it is both bulletproof and capable of firing bullets from its tip. Naturally her Yato heritage makes her very strong, which is a problem because her control isn’t particularly great.

Hence a lot of pets who met an unfortunate demise.

Top Korean cosplayer Tasha brings this fun Gintama character to life, just in time for today’s cosplay quickie!
