Featured Cosplayer: Kaine Kiryu

Kaine Kiryu is a Korean cosplayer from Southern California.  She has portrayed an abundance of characters from the anime, video game and movie world; most notably Zero Kiryu from Vampire Knight.  She has also portrayed other characters such as Prince Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender, Jack Frost, Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!, and Jellal from Fairy Tail!  Of course, that’s just scraping the top of the iceberg as her character portrayals don’t stop there!

Her dedication to cosplay and her love of the art form is what caught our attention. Because of this, we are proud to feature Kaine Kiryu in our Cosplay Corner! Kaine was kind of enough to handpick some of her favorite cosplays to share with us!
