eGames 2007: Playing With Cosplay

egames_cosplay1.jpgDoes the headline sound dirty? It shouldn’t. Honest.

There was actually quite a bit more cosplay strolling around the show floor than what I managed to snap, but I like to think I got the best of the bunch.

After the jump there’s a guy in a blue robe and a chick with a fan. I know they’re from something, but my exile (nasty situation with the furries, gave a whole new meaning to the expression “Let sleeping dogs lie”) from the cosplay scene means I have no idea who they’re supposed to be.

Tell you what – first person to detail all four characters presented in the photo above and the one past the jump, will win themselves a copy of Mario Party DS (thanks Nintendo!), just because it’s a nice thing to do. Just post your answer as a comment, and we’ll be in touch.

Specifically, we want to know the name of the character, and any one game/anime they’ve appeared in.egames_cosplay2.jpgWhooooo are you? Who who, who who? And no, the chick on the right is not Miranda Richardson from the second season of Blackadder.


  • Well, I’m not 100% sure about this, but the first girl is obviously Yuffie from FFVII, NO idea about the one next to her.
    The crazy blue guy i think is Vivi from ffIX, and the girl next to him is one of teh chicks from samuri/dynasty warriors… but for the life of me, i can’t remember which one!

  • I’ve got my money on the last person being Kenshin; if it’s not the red hair and pink and white clothes, then it’s definitely the earphones that give it away.

    Really though, I don’t think we’ll know who she is until we ask her, and even then chances are we’ll all go “really?”, and then snicker behind her back that she looks nothing like said character.

  • The chick on the right of the bottom picture, I got a few pictures of her group on the saturday of the convention, she was there with a giant final fantasy group of cosplayers.

    I can post photos if they’re wanted.

  • The girl with the red hair appears to have some sort of marking on her right cheek. If you can remember what it looks like, it might help in the identification.

  • Top pick is Yuffie from FF7 and Amy Sorel from Soul Calibur 3, bottom picture looks like a black mage from FF3 and the girl is Rurouni Kenshin from the anime of the same name.

  • lol it is me kenshin girl on the right my name is rachel i was suffering from heat exhaustion and ws constanly on the phone to my in house nurse being my mum thouse head phoes are actually a blue tooth set. from the day before when i was in the final fantasy group yeah my hair did its ual trick and wnet curly again.

    as far as i’m concered i did pretty well under the conditons and id love to see ding do a cosplay in 35 odd degrees and still be able to perform the next day

  • Guy in blue robe is cosplaying generic black mage from Final Fantasy. The girl in the white dress is cosplaying Amy Sorel (alternate costume colour) from Soul Calibur III.

    Got any photos of Sat’s cosplayers?
