Item description for We Love Cosplay Girls: More Live Anime Heroines from Japan by James Barratt...

When Cosplay Girls: Japan's Live Animation Heroines was released in 2003, most of us thought anime equaled Pokemon, otaku was a type of noodle and cosplay was something that only happened in faraway Japan. How things have changed! Cosplay today is a global phenomenon, with established conventions, fan sites, clubs and even cosplay celebrities strutting their stuff the world over. The planet, it would seem, can't get enough of cosplay and the Japanese girls who started this craze. We Love Cosplay Girls, the third volume in the cocoro books cosplay photobook series, continues this onslaught of deliciousness with hundreds of full-color photos of street-fighting chicks, fantasy femmes fatales, staff-spinning ninja, spandex-clad dominatrix, pig-tailed schoolgirls, hammer-wielding psychopaths and faux-fur kittens. Why do they do it? How do they do it?! Buy this book and find out!! All-new girls!! All-new costumes!! All-new format!!

Reviews - What do customers think about We Love Cosplay Girls: More Live Anime Heroines from Japan?

Excellent pictorial reference book for cosplayers for a great price!  Aug 8, 2008
The book starts out with an interesting three page writeup by a cosplayer which seems like a page from her diary as she dishes out the dirt on her cosplay rivals, stressing about getting a costume ready for this event and so much more.

But the remaining 77-pages are then dedicated to photos of cosplayers in Japan broken down in chapters such as: Heroes, She's So Cool, Asian Style, Animal Land, Spacey, Dark Side, Cute Style and School Life.

Photos are shown, with the names of the cosplayer, the character and the anime, video game or manga that they are cosplaying from.

Looking through the "Heroes" section and seeing this beautiful outfit created by Ayamori Yika of Iteza Seiya from the series "Saint Seiya" is just awesome. If there is one thing that I would love to see in a future adaption of a cosplay book is how the costume was created, how long and how much.

But to see the craftmanship put into her overall outfit is just amazing.

Then seeing a page of a cosplay group and individuals showcasing their outfits based on the CAPCOM Playstation 2 game "Sengoku Basara" ("Devil Kings" in the USA) which was awesome to see. And was surprised how many cosplayers adored the characters as there are many cosplaying "Sengoku Basara" characters.

As I turn the page and viewed each cosplayer, I can imagine that many fans outside of Asia would appreciate this book because there is cosplay from the noticeable "BLEACH", "ONE PIECE", "DRAGON BALL Z" and "NARUTO" cosplay, to video games such as "Tales of Symphonia", "Dragon Quest", "Suikoden" and "Sengoku Musou" (aka Dynasty Warriors), "Final Fantasy" and more.

I just found it also interesting to see pages dedicated to certain characters like the cosplayers dressed up as the sultry Rangiku of "BLEACH" because as a bloke, I have been interested to see how much umm...cleavage that a cosplayer would show for Rangiku and sure enough, some cosplayers did.

Of course, I had to check out the "Dark Side" section and see the cosplayers of darkness dressing up as "Suikoden", "D.Gray-man", "Black Lagoon" and "Sengoku Basara" (Devil Kings) characters. Especially to see the group cosplaying as the evil "Akatsuki Warriors!" from "Naruto" was pretty cool.
