Omg, I must say I’m sorry before I start this entry because, well, it is going to be the most horrible cosplay I have ever done. I think I have done a lot of unforgivable cosplays like shirtless, taisougi, or BL. And most of my cosplays are students although it is too late to be. But this time, I must make sure you put on a google to protect your eyes. Because the cosplay I am going to show you is this.
This is a BL game from Nitro+ CHiRAL, Lamento-BEYOND THE VOID-. If you have played Togainu no Chi or sweet pool, you would be definitely sure of this game, and why the cosplay is too painful to your eyes. Yes, all the characters in this game are humanized cats[擬人化]. So? Well…you know, every one of them has cat’s ears and tail. Oh no, an elder guy like me cosplays a humanized cat? オッサンのくせに猫耳なんかつけてやんの! I know this is really painful(we say 痛い[itai]), but あのね、言い訳させて! I really wanted to challenge a 猫耳[nekomimi] character when I cosplayed with Zander-kun who did Chesha-cat from Pandora Hearts. He got a lot of “Kya～kawaii!” when we walked around the venue. I am not defintely young like him, but it is not bad that I challenge such a character once in my cosplay life.
The reason why I cosplayed this series is that my cosplay buddy suggested. She is a big fan of this game, and cosplays the hero, Konoe. Then she asked me to cosplay someone in this game, so I decided to cosplay him.
He is one of the lead characters, Asato[アサト]. Darn it, I made a mistake. I should have chosen someone else because his skin is so dark. I have to get tunned before I cosplay him! Asato is a man of few words, and not so smart, but tries to protect Konoe. Well, I think I’m starting to like him. This Konoe cosplayer is an ex-cosplayer, not anymore. However, she remembered the promise we would collaborate together so she came back just for this. Glad to cosplay with her, even I became a criminal.
I shall explain the summary briefly; the story takes place in the forest in which all the animals are in a desperate hunger. They even try to kill each other to eat. In such a time, Konoe decides to leave the forest, however he finds a dark mark appears on his skin all of a sudden. It turns out to be a kind of curse, and it is going to kill him. He learns about a way to break the curse so departs from his home, but…
Such is the prologue of this game. Konoe meets other characters, and you can choose who you work on. No matter who you choose, Konoe ends up being an uke. At any rate, Lamento is a BL game, but the storyline is so good that the Konoe cosplayer cried over and over. Most fangirls like Lai x Konoe, but I prefer Asato x Konoe. Because once again, I tend to like a clumsy character.
In case you don’t know this game, I shall upload the video. Once again, get ready a google for your eyes. Are you ready?
So near but so far away, you’ll forever be locked withing my heart, presence in the air of melody…
When the end comes, will it take it all away? Sweeping our memories, erasing time that we so much shared
When the end comes, everything will fade away
Don’t let it come undone, withing my heart let it stay…even when…
In darkness we seek for light though it may never be
Someday we might find the sky we long so much to see
