Riku - I'm upon you by NanjoKoji Riku - I'm upon you by NanjoKoji
I love the first Kingdom Hearts game. More than the games after. The first one was like a fairy tale and had a charme that the others couldn't come up with again.
This picture reminds me of Sora meets with Riku in the Hollow Bastion.

This is my favorite Riku cosplay from you.:clap:

You look younger in it I think, but that's probably because you were when it was taken. The devilishness in this is great and so Riku-ish.

You look so boyish in this shot, but that's what you were going for, right...? :blush:

actually this was taken a year ago. I don't think I've aged a lot in the meantime. At least I hope so XD

Ummm, I'm not sure how you'll take this but you've knocked Johnny Depp out of first place for "Things that I definately would NOT mind finding behind a door" Watch the Secret Window if you haven't and you want this to make sense. So beautiful/intense/OMG NOSEBLEED!

The first one was so much better than the others...
It was so exciting and magical~ And challenging unlike KH2 XD It was too easy!!!

That outfit is simply stunning.
Seriously.
You pretty much ARE Riku from KH!
And I agree, the first game was so much more fantasy based if you ask me :3
Like when you have to find the books in Hollow Bastion, oh the good ol' times :3

More often than not the first is always the best, thought I loved CoM since you could play as Riku; I got all excited at that.

I don't know if it's the lightning or what but your face is perfect - so devious. Repliku is one of my favourites from you; a perfect portrayal.

Seeing your explaination on the first Kingdom Hearts game it makes think about the Disney movies and their sequels.
When you watch certain sequels, they don't have the same qualities or feeling as the first, neither do the spin-off series.
But with Kingdom Hearts having a plot of its own, that I can understand. :nod: (I didn't like what they did with Pirates of the Caribbean though). Since you're making a point about the sequals of KH it makes you wonder about the new interquels coming out.

In fact, its making me wonder one thing; will you be doing musicals of the 3 new games coming out some time in future?

I'm trying to figure out what material you used for the skirt part...
I should know this. Ugh.
VERY nice!

i have to agree, but the 2nd game is ALOT easier than the first i think mainly b/c it tells you what to do next? and i havent played chain of memories yet so no comment =.= :[

great cosplay thought :D the keyblade[i think its a keyblade.. thats what happened at the end of KHII; riku had a keyblade........] is a little thin thought. it may just be the angle ^.-

I can agree with the fairy tale aspect of the game. KH:CoM and KH2 just don't compare to that whole 'friend vs friend, light vs dark' thing from the first game.

Marry me.

I love the feeling everything is giving off: the expression, the pose (duh), and even the scenery...the metal-looking door, the deteriorating wood on the frame. It IS very Hollow Bastion.

Man, oh man.
