Daily Cosplay Inspirations

If you go to Anime News Network, you may notice a feature known as “Daily Cosplay”. We’re always happy to see cosplay whenever we can, and the more often, the better!

Each photo is accompanied by an explanation of the anime, manga or video game character, an identification of the cosplayer, if available, and the copyright holder for the photo. And if you click the photographer/copyright owner’s link, you can see more from them!

So far, in March, there have been four (4) Daily Cosplay photos you can see and comment on. They are:

Gurren Lagann's Nia, taken at the 2010 Leipzig Book Fair in Leipzig, Germany

Cosplayer portrays Nia Teppelin from Gainax's television anime Gurren Lagann. Nia wears the outfit portrayed above later in the series after it is revealed that she is not who she seems to be. In the comments, we learn that the cosplayer is Marino, who has plenty of cosplay photos to admire.
