I like to get people to cosplay, and it would be more enjoyable if the person is not actually a cosplayer. When I see people, I always think of which character will suit him/her. So when I met up the young Singaporean boy named double, Ikari Shinji directly came to my mind because his height, looking, physique, and the way he is are closely resemble for him. If Nagisa Kaworu might have been born to meet Shinji, he might have been born to cosplay Ikari Shinji. And I’d venture to say I might have been born to cosplay with him. げーホントにガチホモみたい！ヤバい！キモい！間違いない！！
I have been a cosplayer for almost one year, so I have been sure some tactics(?), I mean, how to cosplay well. The fandamental point is to find a character who looks like you. It’s not about the looking, but the figure, the shape of your face, or something like that. It would be easier to cosplay such a character rather than a character who doesn’t look like you at all. At any rate, when double was on this, I was quite happy and pretty sure he would make a nice Shinji. Then I can cosplay Nagisa Kaworu, so it would be nice if we two could cosplay together…Don’t mention our age difference is 10!
However, I was so worried if he changed his mind to come to Tokyo again because of the massacare in Akihabara. Even if he didn’t, what if his parents were against it? But it didn’t happen. He came to Tokyo as he planned…I really think his parents and him are very thougtful and they mutually trust. Okay, so during his staying in Tokyo, I must protect him no matter what, right? Ugh, if I were Ayanami Rei, I could say あなたは死なないわ…私が守るもの[You won’t die because I will protect you.]
Today we joined the cosplay event in Harumi Terminal[晴海ターミナル] near Odaiba. Here, cosplay events often take place though I had never been here. He obviously looked anxious, but it was his first cosplay. I think he did a good job, and of course I really appreciate don777 who kindly worked as our photographer.
Okay here it goes, but I have to tell you these pictures contain…nah, you do know what I am going to say?? When Nagisa Kaworu is beside Ikari Shinji…you know what will happen, don’t you?^^ えっと、その…I-I-I was acting! Not really! Don’t say 嘘だッ！I am not lying!!
もしも願いひとつだけ 叶うなら 君の側で眠らせて どんな場所でもいいよ
Why am I talking about this kind of thing to Kaworu-kun?
いつかいなくなるような そんな気がしてたけど 時代が回り また君を見つけるだろう
ALONE 僕らは それぞれの花を 抱いて生まれた 巡り会うために（You know, we are all alone)
You’re gone いつまでも 歌い続ける声は どこまで届くだろう 今 君に逢いたい（Hold your dreams, it never ends, Naked eyes in the sky）
