Cosplay: The Ladies of Metal Slug

One of the best slide scrolling games ever. Check out one of our recent reviews here. The two ladies from Metal Slug, Eri Kasamoto and Fiolina Germi were added in the later editions of the game. Check out their profiles from their wiki page.

Eri Kasamoto

  • Voiced by: Susanna Fera

Eri is an orphan, abandoned on the steps of a church. Once she was mature enough, she fled the church and became a leader of street kids. The Intelligence Agency of the Government Forces noticed her combat skills and recruited her. She went on to receive special spytraining for those with special talent and successfully completed a number of missions as a first rate agent. But Eri, weary from the series of missions involving assassinations and plots that took a hard toll on her conscience, requested to be transferred to the Special Ops Squad S.P.A.R.R.O.W.S. Her request, which normally would go ignored, was specially granted given her achievements and superior abilities. For her efforts in suppressing Morden’s second coup d’état, she received a promotion to sergeant second-class.

Fiolina Germi

  • Voiced by: Melissa Ex

Fio is the only daughter of a wealthy Italian family. After she was born, her mother was unable to have any more children, making Fio the first heiress in the history of her family, as she had no older siblings. Throughout the generations, the Germi family has made a tradition of sending their eldest child into the military; Fio upholds this tradition willingly, though she has aspirations of becoming a doctor someday, having studied chiropracticsacupuncture, and moxibustion in college.[1] Fio is a Master Sergeant of the Intelligence Agency’s S.P.A.R.R.O.W.S, which serves as a special forces group for the government. As with her comrades in Metal Slug 2 and beyond, she rose through the ranks for her service against General Morden. She has also appeared in the King of Fighters series, first as a Striker in The King of Fighters 2000, and then being playable for the first time in KOF: Maximum Impact 2; in the game, she has a special intro when fighting members of the Ikari Warriors mistaking Ralf, Clark, and Leona as Marco, Tarma, and Eri respectively.

Cosplay: The Dark Right

This weeks cosplay is for all the cosplayers out there taking up the mantle of Batgirl. With the release of The Dark Knight Rises we wanted to showcase some awesome Batman related cosplay, so enjoy.

 

Cosplay: Resident Yummy

Here is a quote on Shiva’s costume from Destructoid:

Ever since Resident Evil 5 released its first full trailer and caused controversy amongst the stupid people of the world, I have defended it from accusations of racial prejudice. However, looking at Sheva’s “sexy” unlockable costume, I have to admit that it does look a little bit racist.

As you can see from the provided pictures, this new costume comes complete with tooth necklace, neck bangles and tribal tattoos. All she’s missing is a bone through her nose and a boiling pot with a freshly captured white man in it. Soup’s on, and it tastes of racism!

While I maintain that the game isn’t racist, not least because Japanese people simply don’t seem aware of themselves when they stereotype other races (naivety is not the same as racism), I don’t think I’ll try and defend this one. I’ll just keep my inappropriate laughter to myself, and hope the “that’s racist zomg” crowd don’t get their hands on it.

My response as a black man:

I’d hit dat!

Now on with the Cosplay!

On to the cosplay.

 

Cosplay: High School of the Dead

This week cosplayland is invaded by Zombies as we profile cosplay from the anime High School of the Dead.

 

 

 

 

Cosplay: Poison

Here is some information on the motivational poster I created from the wiki page for Poison of Final Fight:

Poison’s first appearance in Final Fight featured her and a palette swap character named Roxy as recurring minor enemies for the player to fight. Named after the band by an unnamed female employee at Capcom,she was designed by Akira Yasuda to contrast against the bigger characters in the game and move about randomly.According to the book All About Capcom Head to Head Fighting Games, the characters were originally planned to be female, but were changed to male transvestites (or more specifically “newhalfs“)due to the suggestion that “hitting women was considered rude” in America and the concern that feminist groups would sue.

I have three questions regarding this:

1 – Is hitting females not rude outside America?

2- Is hitting male transvestites not rude?

3- Do male transvestites not sue?

Alight, on with the Cosplay.
