Steins;Gate Shiina Mayuri cosplay 1

Today, we’re featuring an adorable Shiina Mayuri cosplay from the ever so popular Steins;Gate! We enjoy the detail the cosplayer put into her Shiina Mayuri cosplay, such as remembering to add in the little pink ruffle on her dress. Even her poses are totally cute! We’d have to say our favorite part is the bucket hat which completes this entire costume.
We wonder how her work at May Queen Nyan-Nyan is going?

Steins;Gate takes place in 2010 during summer and features time and space travel as its main theme.  The concept of cause and effect is featured prominently in the series as the protagonist, Rintarō Okabe, travels back in time, numerous times, to perform different actions in an attempt to change what has happened in the future. Mayuri Shiina is the protagonist’s childhood friend, whom enjoys cosplay and works at a maid cafe. (aww!)
Steins;Gate started back in 2009 as a visual novel game for the Xbox 360. It was developed by 5pb. and Nitroplus, and was part of their science adventure game series. The prequel to Steins;Gate is Chaos;Head and its successor is Robotic;Notes. Later, Steins;Gate also has received an anime and manga series, as well as another video game.

Last Weekend, May 23-26,  was the south-west pop-culture event Phoenix Comicon 2013. We were there with our cameras ready to take on the crowds of cosplayers at the convention. Unfortunately, there were so many amazing cosplayers that we couldn’t snap shots of all of them. Here are the cool cosplay photos we took from Phoenix Comicon 2013!..

Neon Genesis Evangelion is a Japanese media franchise created and owned by Gainax, a Japanese animation studio. Most of the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise features an apocalyptic mecha story bursting with action, which revolves around the efforts by the paramilitary organization NERV to fight hostile beings called Angels, using giant humanoids called Evangelions that are piloted by select teenagers. Other works deviate from this theme to varying degrees, focusing more on romantic interactions between characters, side stories which did not appear in the original canon Neon Genesis Evangelion, and/or reimaginings of the conflicts from the original Neon Genesis Evangelion works.

Brazilian cosplayer Andressa, ‘Lilithy’, of LilithyCosplay.com. (the site is in Portuguese, here is an English translated linkLilithy has been cosplaying since 2004 and boy are her cosplays great! She’s cosplayed characters such as Ashlotte (Soul Calibur IV), Hades (Saint Seiya), and Gyoda (Changeman). However Lilithy  also writes tutorials for Cosplay accessories and has made a couple of ‘How I made my cosplay‘s (including her Gyoda cosplay). She also writes tutorials in a group cosplay site called Cosplayers.net We find these two sites incredibly helpful for completing our own cosplays and figured why not share them.

Here are some examples of her tutorials..
