As a long-time fan of Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star), I have always enjoyed the whole story arc with Rei, Mamiya, and Juda. Juda was a character I always personally identified with, and Mamiya was a very strong female character who was brilliantly realized in both the Manga and the Anime series. This Cosplay brings Mamiya to life brilliantly, and the person portraying her looks so strikingly the part that it is both as stunning and beautiful as the character herself is. The costume was obviously a labor of love too. Simply amazing image! Spot on. For vision, I have to give it full marks because the woman who created this obviously succeeded in bringing her vision of Mamiya to life in every way! I also must give it full marks for originality because I've never seen a Mamiya cosplay before and I find this original and refeshing. The technique gets only one star short of full marks due to the background looking a little blurry, something I am never all that fond of in any art form. However, it does not detract from the beauty of the Cosplayer so I cannot give it less than four starts in the Technique department. Lastly, the impact is perfect! I knew instantly that this was Mamiya, so full marks for that as well. I cannot give this a bad critique, it is simply that good. I'd love to see more like this from this artist in the future!
A very inspired Cosplay! One of my all-time favorite characters from Hokuto no Ken, from one of my favorite story arcs in that series. I haven't seen many Mamiya Cosplays over the years, and yours is magfnificent indeed!
