Ayanami Rei :: 01 by gk-reiko Ayanami Rei :: 01 by gk-reiko
Series: 新世紀エヴァンゲリオン Neon Genesis Evangelion
Character: 綾波レイ Ayanami Rei

Photo by *blurmage
(sorry I cropped the image because my belt was hanging loose and it wasn't too nice >< )

I did it, very well knowing that I do not have the Rei vibes or physique D:
A supposedly grown adult trying to cosplay a 14 yr old.
こんな歳になってやってもーたよw
*awaits bashing from Rei fans*

Got to debut Ayanami Rei at Korea's SICAF event! Had a very gorgeous Asuka with me, but more photos of her and me later! Got to take a few event shots with Goldy's Eva-01 but we didn't have time to ask him out for this mini-shoot Dx Pity!

Met *blurmage for the first time in Korea too! I've always heard about him from cosplayers, but I've never seen nor talked to him before, so I was taken by shock when he first introduced himself xD It was great to see you! Sorry I had to make you photograph such a low quality Rei orz Hope I didn't crush your dreams too much orz orz

I like almost all the characters in Eva that it's hard to say who I like the most, but if I have to choose my fav characters are Kaworu, Misato and Rei. Hope to cosplay the first 2 someday too >< Hope!! The characters in Eva are just so dynamic, and the plot so well-done. I probably like Eva as a whole, as one work, so it's pretty hard to single out anyone. Glad I managed to do a cosplay from Eva, even though it's not one of my best ^^;

Whaaaat?! You are -not- too old to play Rei, I think you favor her really well actually! *scolds you for being silly* Don't focus on age so much, I've seen cosplayers as old as 35 and they look amazing as 20 year old characters. :)

*jumps off of soap box*

But seriously, you look really great and spot on as Rei. Nice job :heart:

Love the softness of the hue and quality of your wig, the red in your eyes is showing very well too!
Can't wait to see more Eva shots from you! *huge Eva fan here*

Thanks!!! The wig was originally that purple one (not sure if I showed you at cosfest). Dyed it for about 3 times, but the purple still shows at the top and faintly from the layers underneath Dx

I feel like I destroyed Rei's character when the rowdy and crazy side of me emerges when I'm in costume orz
