Featured cospayer of the week is :iconshino-arika: from Japan.



Tell us about yourself.

Hello! My name is Shino Arika, I am cosplayer from japan.


How long have you been cosplaying and why did you start?. What was your first cosplay and why?

I've been cosplaying for 10 years.
My first cosplay was Duo Maxwell from Gundam Wing.


Which cosplay is your favorite?

My favorite costume(s) are Yukimura Sanada from Sengoku BASARA, Maya from Kantai Collection, Junko Enoshima from Dangan Ronpa.
It is difficult that to choose, because I like these.

How do you pick the characters you cosplay?

If possible, I'd like to create elaborate costumes and eccentric-looking wigs for characters that are really original.


Pick anyone of your costumes and tell us a little bit about how you made it.

Maya is the most time-and-money consuming project of my recent ones. she is huge and would be hard to carry, so I made it to be disassembled.
I used a urethane board as the base for gun turret. I put a cloth over it and painted it with lacquer. I bought most of its materials at a 100 yen store. It has a lid and other parts can be put in. It's lightweight and endures splashes of water in a photo session.


Care to share some tips for costume making?

Making the wig for Felicia was a tough job. First I used a urethane board to make the base, I attached a piece of cloth on the base, and then I attached hairs on it with wood glue.
The wig for Junko Enoshima has wires on it. To make the wires hard to see, I hid the wires under hairs by winding the hairs with the same color as the wig's around the wires and attached the hairs to the wires with wood glue.
To make hairs really stiff, I'd recommend for you to use watered-down wood glue, rather than hairspray. However, it takes time for the glue to dry, so you need to give yourself enough time to finish the job.


Are you currently working on any other projects?

My next cosplay will be Nagato from Kantai Collection.

Group Rules. Please read before submitting!

Welcome to the new group "UnlimitedCosplay"!

It´s a group for fans, cosplayers and photographers.
You can contribute as much deviations as you want (it's only limited to 3 pictures per day)~
If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Our aim is to spread art, so please recommend us :pc:


:bulletpurple:Please remember that deviations which contain explicit violence are not allowed


:bulletpurple:Pictures with mature content should be marked as such (for example pictures that show an excessive amount of blood, nudity etc.)


:bulletpurple:Please submit to the right folder. You should always choose the folder that is more specific (for example Code Geass -> don't submit into the "Anime Folder" but into the "Code Geass Folder" )

:bulletpurple: A picture with a detailed description will help our contributors to identify the submission (for example Model, Character, Game/Anime/Movie , Photographer & Event) .

:bulletpurple:Respect the staff


:bulletred: Submission expired? This might happen due to hundreds of submissions per day, please submit again !

:bulletpurple: Submissions into the Featured folder will take at least 3 votes! (Keep in mind that this it the representative folder of our group!)


:bulletpurple: Try to keep variety by not posting all pictures from one shot or your entire gallery! Identical pictures might be denied or deleted. We accept only a few (usually 3) pictures of the same cosplay/photoshoot.


:bulletpurple: Please submit your photo to the right folder. Contributors won´t move it for you because there are too many pictures.


:bulletpurple: We won't accept wig only pictures ( No WIP work or test shots) . We are a costume group so we want to see at least a bit of the costume in your pictures.

:bulletred: Your photo needs to show at least the lower part of the bust and up, everything that is below will be denied.


:bulletpurple: Conphotos will no longer be accepted to the group unless they show a single cosplay (with no unrelated people in the background) or if they are really good quality.


:bulletpurple: Contributors should be active. That means they should at least vote one time per week. Otherwise their role will be changed back into a normal member.

:bulletred: Contributors do not need to give a reason on why they declined a submission. Because of the amount of submissions we receive every day, it's not possible to give every member a reason of denial. Check if you submitted into the wrong folder first or if your picture shows unrelated people in the background (remember the close up rule too!). If you still don't know why the picture was declined, use the comment section beneath the submission correspondence.

:bulletpurple: Keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes. So if you think that your submission was denied because of no reason ask the staff.
