Cosplay Wednesday – Yakuza’s Kazuma Kiryu

The Yakuza series continues its reign in the West with the upcoming release of Yakuza Kiwami 2. In honor of this game, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of Kazuma Kiryu.

German cosplayer Pumkin-Portfolio (aka Miette Amalie) “crossplays” as the manly Kazuma Kiryu in her rendition of the Dragon of Dojima. The costumes, wigs and makeup in these renditions are from Yakuza Kenzan! (as Kazumanosuke Kiryu), Yakuza 0 as “-Judgement Kazzy-”, and Yakuza 3’s Okinawa outfit. She also got a chance to try her hand at a “Dia de los Muertos” version of this legend.
