Cosplay Wednesday – Persona 4 Arena’s Shadow Yosuke Hanamura

The one-on-one action of Arc System Works and Atlus West’s Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (you can read our review here) has gotten itself rollback netcode. In honor of this blessed feature, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a unique cosplay of one of the key members of the Investigation Team.

extremenikita turned their sights to Persona 4 Arena’s Shadow Yosuke in this shot.

They took this photo of themselves in their bathroom. Their camera had been set up on the counter, set on a remote setting. The contacts they used glow black light, so they are as yellow as they look in the photo. For the makeup, their normally pale foundation shone through, complete with black eyeshadow applied around the eyes and in the corners of their mouth.

Taken with a Canon EOS REBEL T3i, credit goes to BLUEsteelProductions for the photo.
