Cosplay Wednesday – Dead or Alive’s Kasumi

Cosplay Wednesday - Dead or Alive's Kasumi

Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive series of fighters might have solid mechanics, but there’s no denying the gameplay plays second fiddle to its ladies — otherwise we’d have an all-male version of Xtreme Beach Volleyball. With Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate on the horizon, we take a look at one of the finer cosplays of the series — a spot-on recreation of the cover-girl Kasumi.

Ukraine cosplayer Sofia “Grellka-LOLI” Zubko’s captures the likeness of the redheaded ninja Kasumi perfectly with this cosplay. While she has done a number of other cosplays (like Final Fantasy’s Onion Knight), but her DoA pictures stand out the most. For those who really want to show their support, you can let her know that you want a calendar of her cosplays here.

Her WorldCosplay page can be found here, her DeviantArt page can be found here, and her Facebook page can be found here.
