Hi! I’m Akemi.

I’ve been cosplaying since I don’t know. Somewhere between late 2007 to early 2008, I guess?

My main interest is traditional Japanese culture and it also reflects on my cosplay choices. I almost always cosplay kimono characters. My default cosplay is Kamiya Kaoru from Rurouni Kenshin because my favorite kimono set is a purple ro kimono (silk gauze) and an old rose nagoya obi that is quite similar to hers.

I also sew my own costumes with the help of my trusty sewing machine, Ang-i. I’ve made a couple of kimono, including Enma Ai’s furisode (Jigoku Shoujo) and Escolarium’s uniform (Grachi primera temporada, my first Latino series cosplay).

I’ve also been studying about the Kyoto geiko (Kyoto term for geisha) community since 2007.
