Cos Lab _Taiwan
“Cos Lab” is the corner where we introduce Asia’s most popular cosplayers and display a collection of some of their finest works. Following on from the Japan and China editions, we now turn to Taiwan.
In this Taiwan edition, we team-up with Taiwanese dojin and cosplay magazine, “Dream Project,” and introduce you to some of Taiwan’s most prominent cosplayers!

Cosplayer #003 turned her hobby into a career and now designs costumes and does modeling for a living. Meet the beautiful, Akuna.

Cosplayer #003 - Akuna

The third cosplayer we want to introduce you to is Akuna. She may cosplay as a man but this cosplayer is truly stunning. She first developed an interest in cosplay in her school years, when a friend took her along to a dojinshi event and she saw people there who were cosplaying. She soon took to cosplaying herself and has since even turned that hobby into a career, now making costumes and modeling for a living. Akuna prefers to cosplay male characters, and she not only does characters from anime and manga, but visual-k and characters from Hollywood films as well. Take a look at her gallery of work.
