Cosplay: Puella Magi Madoka – Madoka Kaname
October 2, 2012
The best thing about knowing a cosplayer is knowing a great cosplayer. Dear viewers I’m happy to present one of my friends and awesome cosplayer Manz as Madoka Kaname. This cosplay is awesome. Everything from her hand-made prop to the details in ruffling of her skirt are spot on. I’ve personally known Manz since highschool (which for those who don’t know has been around 6 years now) and have watched her cosplays grow leaps and bounds over the years. I know she puts attention into all the details. My only complaint about this particular cosplay (and I know she tried desperately to find the right ones) are the shoes. They`re wedges and not actually heels which yes, definitely can be overlooked. Other than that Manz has successfully transformed herself into Madoka right out of the anime. Manz hand sews and creates all the costumes and props herself. She and my good friend Jen attend anime conventions and panels on a regular basis. If you guys have any questions on how she creates her cosplays feel free to post a comment below. She’ll be happy to answer any of your questions. And yes, she’ll be heavily featured on my site from now on.
I personally have heard great things from this anime. Although I’ve never watched it (sacrilege for my site!) I’ve heard that it’s surprisingly mature and definitely worth the watch. Being 13 episodes long I can see it being on my to-watch list in the very near future. “There exist “Messengers of Magic” who have the power to grant one wish to a chosen girl. However, that girl must then become a magical girl and fight against witches, evil creatures born from curses that are responsible for murders and suicides. A schoolgirl named Madoka Kaname and her friend Sayaka Miki are approached by one of those Messengers of Magic named Kyubey and magical girl named Mami Tomoe with offers of becoming magical girls, while another magical girl, Homura Akemi, tries to prevent Madoka and friends from making such a deal… ” – Puella Magi Wiki
