Arcana Heart - Kira Daidohji by HezaChan Arcana Heart - Kira Daidohji by HezaChan
Photo taken by me

She is my favorite character from the fighting game series. She is a child prodigy who earned her doctorate at age 10 in Elemental Science at a prestigious American university. Kira became embittered with the world around her when she was forced to return to elementary school upon returning to Japan. Because of this, she became arrogant and condescending, and she has come to the conclusion that her only remaining option is to embark on a quest for global domination (plus she wears a sukumizu and randoseru? HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!). She also sometimes wears a labcoat in the endings of the game.

This is pretty much just a closet cosplay. I used my sukumizu (swimsuit) from my previous Komugi cosplay, the wig is from I-no, and the randoseru (backpack) I got off of a Japanese auction site for 15 bucks. The cat ears are made by me and are completely hand sewn. I also made her little recorder pouch that is sticking out of her backpack.

Nice cosplay. I might cosplay Kira for next year maybe. I have some questions though.
1. Arcana Heart is pretty niche IMO. Would people still recognize Kira if they played/seen the game?
2. I'm a guy and I do want to crossplay as Kira. Do you think it's weird that I want to cosplay as her seeing that I'm a guy?

I'm pretty sure I can do it. Just need to shave legs and pits. Maybe arms too. Hope you reply.

Most no one recognized me, very few did. But I don't cosplay characters in hopes someone will recognize it, I do it because I love the character. People recognizing it is just a plus.

Cosplay what you want. If you feel comfortable and you want to, go for it! Don't listen to what others may say about male crossplayers. Cosplay is all in having fun and doing what makes you happy.

Oh my gosh, how cute! :) Can I ask which Japanese auction site did you get the Randoseru from? And how much did the shipping cost you? :X

It's just a regular swimsuit, therefore it's fine in water.

When I was in Japan I looked around like crazy for both, but couldn't find them. Instead I bought them on YahooJapan auctions using a shopping service.

They now sell them on ebay, but are way over priced.

Well most uniform stuff is government regulated. I didn't go looking too hard in fetish(costume) shops, mainly because they aren't made to be worn a lot. Also, I wasn't around many regular department stores to find a randoseru, but even new in japan they cost around 500.

yeah but they last a shit-long of a time. They are made from real thick ass leather. They are supposed to last a child's whole k-6 experience, but they last way longer than just that.

So simple yet so cute and full of moe.
I just ordered my Sukumizu so I won't be jealous in that extent.
And lucky you for getting a cheap ransel.Cheapest one I've seen is 50$ but, shipping cost bomb.
