Feature Friday: Makoto Kusinagi

Makoto Kusinagi from Ghost in the Shell

This week’s feature is a fantastic cosplay of major Makoto Kusinagi from Ghost in the Shell, by Blondie1419 over at Deviantart!  Go check out her page.  This cosplay is another great example of how details can make or break a cosplay.  She chose a great iteration of Makoto, and did a great job making her costume, but what really makes it stand out is the perfection of her hair, eyes and attitude.  She nailed the texture of her hair.  It’s just perfect.  It does exactly what it does  in the anime.  The colored contacts are another seemingly small touch that just makes the cosplay stand out so much more than if she hadn’t had them.  All of her poses convey the characters atitude so well.

It’s a great example of how the smallest details not only make the cosplay more accurate, but help you get into character.  Alas, I’ve never been able to do colored contacts, because I wear glasses and the cost of getting perscription colored contacts is prohibitive.  But maybe someday…
