Cosplay-Vielfalt auf der MCM Oktober 2016

We’re back from MCM in London. In addition to all the magnificent cosplayers you could see (and meet) in and around MCM of course there were the Cosplay contests to attend and in one hall you could even ride a rollercoaster.  Like many visitors we also went shopping to our heart’s delight and absolute displeasure of our wallets.

Regarding shopping: This year there was a first! coscraft had all English issues of Cohaku for sale at their booth.

For us the highlight of the convention was the diversity of cosplays and cosplayers from all over the globe. Maybe, but just maybe, our team has brought one or the other surprise back from London to fill future issues with.

Cohaku #11 – Behind the scenes

In April we had our Cover shoot for German Cohaku Vol. 11 in Schwetzingen with our gorgeous Covermodels Kazenary, Super_minaco, Alathaia, Tsukihana Cosplay Artist and the talented Chikara as photographer!
The 11th issue is all about asian culture and asian inspired cosplays! So what could be better than cute girls in traditional dresses and cherry blossoms 😉 We chose the quirky and colorful design of the anime series Love Live!

To give you an impression of our shooting, we made a little behind the scenes-video while the wonderful Morin was taking the Making-of photos. Have fun!

To find all English issues that we are published so far, just klick this link. 🙂
