Survivor by PaXingCai Survivor by PaXingCai
Aya Tokiwa from Cage of Eden! I love love love this manga and as poopy as the end was its still a 10/10 series for me. Much love and <3s to :iconkoizuki: for getting this to me so fast! If anyone has read the manga this pose should be pretty familiar... Also I need to find more characters to cosplay with purple hair!

Super simple construction on this and as for the wig all I did was cut the bangs and spike the back :)

I love Cage of Eden, but it is so unknown... </3
And Tokiwa is a very cool and strong character!!

I wish it would get an anime to get more people interested and a better ending...

I watch maybe 2 shows a year now tbh. Working full time + grad school puts a damper on your anime watching :<

Hey, I'm seeing some athleticism with this one. Great work on pulling off such a dynamic pose. Having your right foot planted in such a way while having your left knee off the ground isn't just something anyone can pull off. At the very least, you and the photographer did a great job of making this shot look very legit, but I suspect this was something that's a result of your fitness, as well.

That aside, the entirety of the cosplay is really good, in my opinion. What you call "simple" is still a solid effort in the sense that nothing seems out of place or 'fake'. I mean... you're wearing a purple wig, and even that seems believable. The background also brings about a sense of activity to the photo. Whoever decided to use that area for the shoot made a great choice.

Another quality showing by you, really. Your character choices tend to make do quick Google searches quite often, and I mean that as a compliment, given how unique and well done your cosplay efforts usually are. Just keep doing what you're doing! :thumbsup:

Thank you very much! I try to find dynamic ways to pose as you can only stand so many full length pictures of people just standing you know? I def try to keep myself in shape for cosplay. This location was pretty ideal really [link] We just used one of the corners but the manga is set in a past but future kind of weirdness and it just worked. I really do appreciate the time you take in responding and looking at my cosplay. It helps me to keep inspired that people enjoy what I create :3

Don't mention it! It's you that's putting in the work, after all. I just try to appreciate what it is that I'm seeing. Speaking of which, I can now say with some experience that pulling off that pose IS a challenge. =P

A few clicks of the mouse and taking a moment to share a thought or two every now and then is easy by comparison, frankly, especially when you find a person's craft to be fun to watch. Furthermore, it seems like you take the quality of your work from a variety of perspectives to heart, which keeps things exciting looking from the outside. All I try to do is drop a few lines and respectfully give credit when I think it's warranted. :nod:
