    I followed one of the Kuroneko links and found another set of Inami Yuri… and in the right hands, she just might be the best Kuroneko of them all:
    Good balance between realness/surrealness + heartstopping cuteness.

    It occurs to me that I didn't really do a good "plainclothes" Kuroneko yet. I didn't look that closely at Mashiro Yuki's stuff since I find many of her photos sets overly long and/or softcore-y, but she actually does this plainclothes Kuroneko pretty well:

    Ririchiyo… I'm not going to sift my sources as comprehensively for this one since Ririchiyo is so popular as a cosplay that I'd be swamped. I've photographed at least eight different Ririchiyo cosplays at local cons, which is quite a bit higher than I'd expect from the show's profile.

    Kanata is really good at capturing Ririchiyo, IMO:

    Some of the materials in Uri's costume are as good as I'd like, but she's pretty decent at the role:

    Horns aside this girl is pretty good. Very bishounen Soushi as well (I'm guessing played by a woman…):

    And since she's such a good Kuroneko, I'll throw in the one Ririchiyo cosplay I know is her (though the last one looks a bit like her, actually - can't tell since the models aren't labelled):

    I should throw in some locals whose cosplays I like:
    DarkenedXStar is pretty solid, perhaps even a bit more so than this photo suggests. Short in real life too, she's done a damn good Taiga in the past (seems to be a popular choice among Vancouver area Ririchiyo cosplayers who also do other characters for some reason):

    Two Ririchiyo/Soushi pairs… seems to be a fairly popular cosplay for couples from what I've seen:

    I feel like this girl is cute in a "girl next door" kind of way compared to a lot of others here - granted, that may be partly my lack of postprocessing work.
    Really wish I didn't have people in the background in the first shot but I wasn't the one who set it up (a decent number of my photos come from joining shoots other photographers have started).

    BTW, for reference Ririchiyo is 145cm (4'9") tall, the same as Kud in Little Busters and well known voice actress Yuuki Aoi, pictured hear wearing substantially heeled boosts with her 187cm (6'2") Gosick co-star Eguchi Takuya:

    (Okay, that's the last of these I do for a while... in concept, these posts are easy for me to write but in practice it takes me a while to dig up all the requisite links.

    Kuroneko is hard because I think you kind of have to strike a balance between otherworldly and realistic for her in gothloli mode (which the swimsuit actually takes some cues from), or at the very least wear pronounced makeup and make it look plausible. And for schoolgirl or casual mode you have to be able to pull off the traditional Japanese beauty thing convincingly. I haven't seen a lot of cosplayers who can do it.

    The one in question there is listed as Shion Akira on Behoimi (which often uses a different name order than other sites I use, note that it's more than likely an alias as well):
    (scroll down in the first link, there's more than the Kuroneko one there link)
    I feel the photographer did well giving her an otherwordly look here, which is unusual. It's obviously shopped, but unlike far too many cosplay photos I see, the effect isn't "this looks over airbrushed and fake".

    A few other cosplayers who I think take a good stab at it:
    Asae Ayato: often over shopped, but I think she provides a nicely realistic take on Kureneko when you find a photo of her that isn't:
    Takanashi Maui:
    Karin (one of several of Behoimi - "iv" to be exact) has some decent takes, including of the idol getup from the cover of one of the the OP singles. She doesn't seem to suffer as much as some cosplayers when hit with MPZero's often excessive "photoshop stick", in fact the result often looks quite nice:
    There's one set out there of Inami Yuri as Kuroneko that's gorgeous, even though it's obviously overshopped. Second set mainly provided to demonstrate how much difference post production can make to these things.
    I also think Filipino cosplayer Minori Nakamura (again probably a alias) gives the Japan based cosplayers a run for their money:

    I'm convinced a local girl I could probably compete with these, but it's not the kind of show I'd feel comfortable suggesting she cosplay from.

    Read "definitely isn't illegal" as "definitely is illegal", which clouded my entire judgement and my replies in that thread...

    Fuck it, too lazy n tired to edit posts much...

    Ah fuck, just figured out I read a lot of your posts in the lolicon/TRU/Canada thread incorrectly. I really need to take a vacation somewhere...preferably some tropical island. Stress is kinda breaking me here for the last few days and sending me into a drain of paranoia...sigh.

    Let us start here from Square one. No... from zero!
    You do not wish to know anything. You wish only to speak.
    That which you know, you ignore, because it is inconvenient.
    That which you do not know, you invent.
