Oh man. I have so many. I should probably go region by region hahahaha.
From Asia, I really admire behindinfinity and the rest of the Tuxedo Team. Ranier Tachibana and Jesuke are also sources of inspiration.
I admire Australian cosplayers Miyukiko and AmenoKitarou.
Akusesu and Sushi Monster are definite faves from the West Coast. I also admire Lil-KRN-Yuna, London2191, and Kiaoru from the Georgia area.
From Europe, I can’t really name anyone specific, but Russian, German, and Italian cosplayers never fail to take my breath away. Their work is so clean, I’m jealous.
Locally, I look up to the Mythos girls. They’re good friends and some of the nicest and funniest people I’ve met. I also admire Benihime–that girl is a powerhouse!
And of course, my dear sempai, Buckle. I want to be just like her when I grow up!
