The standard of cosplaying has reached incredible heights throughout the years. Bringing fictional characters to life is becoming more and more realistic. People are more focused on the facial appearance, rather than just wearing a costume. With thousands of fictional characters acting as the canvas for cosplayers’ imaginations, the number of Asian cosplayers have grown exponentially and they are increasingly putting more effort into their craft.

Asian cosplayers display their cosplaying passion and influence all over the world with the help of social media. Instagram, in particular, is the perfect social media platform for cosplayers to fully showcase their efforts through photo spreads. That is why, what is easily capturing the hearts of cosplay fans are the pretty faces of the cosplaying industry. They are stunning, fierce, hot, and at times breathtaking – a fantasy come to life for adolescent boys.
