Cosplay: Reika Shimohira

Last week, we showcased Kei Kishimoto from the hit series Gantz. This week we will feature Reika Shimohira which was the long haired lovely of the team.

This series did so well, that they created a Live Action movie as well. Nothing gets the heart racing than seeing people running around in plug suits and waving weapons.

Well, maybe not everybody, but you get my drift - right?

This time around we have more sword play than gun play for this character. You can see in the designs that they really took to heart the character and even expanded on some of them as well.

Less talk and more look, so with that said, lets take a look at the Lovely Ladies of Cosplay this week.

Let me know which of these ladies are your favorite?

We are also always looking for our COSPLAY STAR, so drop me a line a bluedrakon (at) gmail (dot) com!


  1. Cool plug-suit that's ninja look and stealth. There are really impressive gadgets and some of the galz are so nimble that it makes the overall pic look good.

    1. I think I like this series the best as there were more regular plug suits. Even though Vampy did a stunning job, my fav was Rimuta

  2. I had never seen this Rimuta girl, she's like the spitting image of Reika!

    I think Vampy's suit is the best of all, almost looks like a replica from the movie, but she definitely doesn't have the right proportions for a full fledged Reika.

    1. Like I noted with Katsuden, Rimuta really hits the character right on the money.


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
