Costume Information

Time Taken : Less than a month

After watching Persona 4, I already have ideas for a huge team of all the characters and their Personae behind them. But that's a really grand plan, so I just settled on cosplaying the protagonist myself. I followed the animation's protagonist, named Narukami Yu.

Choosing to cosplay as him was the first impulsive cosplay I've ever did, i.e. I saw the character, decided that I wanted to cosplay as him and immediately started on making it a reality ASAP. It took me less than a month to finish this as I went ahead to order his uniform online, then pieced the rest of his costume together.

As a character who basically had no personality to work on, I told myself one thing: "I want to be that guy who is so unfazed by everything and can still say that he's gonna cry after being bitten by Teddie on his hand." From there, I worked on the portrayal of Narukami for the event. In the end, it wasn't a hard thing to do as I tried to be as earnest as I could as Narukami. It was pretty fun actually!

I'm gonna be having a photo shoot with my friend, who cosplayed as Izanagi with me. I'll be updating this page with photos of the shoot.

InfiniteJester: I know! I got introduced to the series from the anime first, and as I was watching I kept thinking that it'll be real cool if the whole cast could stand shoulder to shoulder with their personae behind them. Really awesome... but quite tough to pull off though.
