Japanese cosplayer dresses as female high school student

Le 27 décembre 2016, 09:52 dans Humeurs 0

These images show why the popular cosplayer has become the face of Japanese high school girls around the nation.


If we were to take a look back at some of Japan’s most popular cosplayers in 2016, 21 year-old Ayato Nikukyu would be at the top of the list, with her popularity exploding largely due to her appearance as the model for Bibi Lab’s Sera Kore line of schoolgirl uniform-style loungewear.

While she’s appeared in a number of different cosplay outfits, the one she’s most commonly photographed in is a Japanese sailor suit-style school uniform, with her youthful looks and short-bobbed, straight hairstyle making her a perfect fit for the look.

Most recently, she appeared in a campaign for factory business Ohmiya, and now she’s back to help promote another company, Doppelgänger, with their range of road bikes.

Seeing as Japanese students commonly commute to and from school in front basket-equipped “mama-chari” bicycles, this sporty-looking bike looks a little out-of-place at first, but Nikukyu is quick to show that schoolgirls can ride road bikes too.

In fact, she has a whole host of tips for potential owners of a Doppelgänger bike, which includes the importance of properly locking bicycles…

According to Doppelgänger, the recent appearance of road bikes as a form of transport in anime and manga is gradually working to increase its appeal across a wide demographic of young women and students. With Nikukyu in the rider’s seat, the popularity of the road bike looks set to increase even further.

Doppelgänger’s “Road Bike Schoolgirl” campaign includes an entire gallery of images featuring the pretty cosplayer, so be sure to stop by their website to check out more photos.

She's the belle of the ball!

She just celebrated her 30th birthday with a luxurious tropical holiday to Bali.

And on Monday night, Anna Heinrich swapped her bikini for a stunning gown by haute couture label Armani Privé as she stepped out for the Australian Fashion Film Awards in Melbourne.

The former reality star took to Instagram to share glimpses of her look for the night, which included the $30,000 dress.

The pricey gown was also embellished by Swarovski crystals along the bust and on one shoulder.

Anna oozed elegance in the dress, with her figure pouring perfectly into the slinky garment.

The girlfriend of former Bachelor star Tim Robards kept her hair and makeup simple as to not detract from the wow factor of the dress.

With lashings of mascara, flawless foundation and a pink lip, Anna's blonde locks were styled in a relaxed up-do.

Sharing a snap after returning home from the event, the Sydney-based beauty wrote: 'Quick bathroom selfie before I hit the sack. Thanks for having me tonight.'

She later posted another photo showing the full effect of the dress while tagging a designer rentals company, who appear to have worked with event organisers to supply dresses to attendees. 

It appears Anna's man Tim stayed home for the night while the blonde beauty attended the event.  

Anna's outing comes after they both travelled to Bali last week for Anna's milestone birthday.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the blonde beauty uploaded a photo of herself sitting among her friends, family and boyfriend Tim, moments before blowing out her birthday candles.


The sister act owning the world of fashion and vying for the top title

One is blonde, the other brunette. While one excelled in volleyball, the other wanted to become a photographer.

But whatever their differences they have at least two things in common.

They are both going head to head at the Royal Albert Hall tomorrow for the title of world’s greatest model.

The award is for the female or male model that has “contributed most to the international fashion scene in the past year and has demonstrated influence beyond the catwalk”.

Should either 21-year-old Gigi or Bella, 20, pick up this somewhat grandiose title at the end of tomorrow’s glittering gala evening it will represent the high point in parallel careers that have seen them come to dominate both the catwalks and the covers of the world’s glossiest magazines.

Naturally the sisters are also huge on social media - Gigi has 26 million followers on Instagram alone - lending them an appearance of intimacy with their fans which earlier generations of supermodels could never hope to achieve.

Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive, British Fashion Council, which runs tomorrow's awards, said either one would be a worthy winner.

“Bella and Gigi are two distinctive personalities who seem to have found their feet so young,” she said.

“Both are incredibly talented models but the nominations show that our voting panel also recognises the power of social media. Both young women are brilliant examples of businesswomen who have been able to harness the consumer demand to engage with the personality behind the brand.”
