Kipi Elite Cosplay Queen Gallery


This gallery is of Kipi, one of the most recognized, if not the best known Japanese cosplayer to foreign audiences.

She is undoubtedly best know for her near infinite portfolio of supreme Haruhi Suzumiya cosplay, but her wonderful portrayals of Asuka Langley Sohryu (getting a separate article too) and Meer Campbell have also seen a wide audience.

She also has performed cosplay of dozens of other characters in what must be one of the most prolific cosplay careers yet seen…

Meer Campbell [Gundam Seed Destiny]


Chii [Chobits]


Anna Kurauchi [He is My Master]


Aria [Aria the Animation]


Iori [I”s]


Konomi Yuzuhara [To Heart 2]


Mikuru Asahina [Haruhi]


Misa Amane [Death Note]


Shana [Shakugan no Shana]


Ruriko [Pure Trance]


Tenma Tsukamoto [School Rumble]


Shiori Misaka [Kanon]


Hatsune Miku


Rin Kagamine


Believe it or not, these images do not even account for half the characters Kipi has cosplayed!

If you are interested in finding out more from her, Kipi’s blog or her unofficial English fansite Kipi Fan may be of interest.

For more cosplay of an exceedingly well-done nature, our Cosplay Elite and Cosplay Elect galleries have plenty of that, and of course there is far more to be found under our general Cosplay tag.

    Too much makeup on her eyes for a lot of the pics. It's like she has multiple borders added to them. To me it makes her look old and I guess "average". Well it might be difficult to find since she's an "idol", but are there any pics of her with no "doll" effects?

    Just look at her videos on she made with her handy, she don't even wear that much makeup besides the eye one.

    The costumes and poses are excellent, but I find her eyes rather unnerving. In several shots, they look almost completely black.

    She does seem quite cute as Rin Kagamine and Meer Campbell, but the rest just doesn't seem to suit her very much. Either way, I think she is definitely one of the better cosplayers than the rest of them. But I still liked Saya more then Kipi..... >.<

    I've seen her alot, and she's good looking, but seeing her so much has become an eyesore in bad and good ways.

    Shes cute IMO. Her teeth are just part of her cuteness, I think.. I just like the way she is.

    Well, yes I think she IS a good cosplayer.

    NO, I do NOT worship her like some ppl here do for two reasons:
    1. There's a LOT of Photoshop involved here.
    2. She ALWAYS has the same generic smile on her face - that's cute for the first 10 pictures. But eventually it gets very creepy to always see the same expression...

    She isn't shoped, that was profen so many times already. Special since there are many long videos of her existing at conventions and such, she looks at the videos the same as always.

    She's as sweet as a candy can be...or more.

    Remember. Nobody is perfect.
    In her case the teeth doesn't matter as long as they are white and healthy.

    I agree! She is amazingly beautiful! I don't care if her teeth aren't the best, she's beautiful anyway! I like pretty much all of her photos, especially the ones of Misa Amane! (I am a HUGE Death Note fan!) From what I've heard, she is a really nice person as well! I really wish I could be with someone like her!!! One day, I want to fly to Japan and maybe go on a date with her! It probably will never happen, but I really hope it will! :D

    Been a long time since I watched chobits, but I don't think Chii's uniform was red.

    Liked the Tenma the best for some reason.. now go find me a Yakumo :)

    Indeed, Tenma was portrayed quite nice (ah sweet Tenma <3). The Shiori from Kanon cosplay was exceptionally good too. The garment selection was on the spot.

    Her teeth kinda screws it up, otherwise she does a decent cosplay job.

    Most Japanese girls have weird nashers.
    pretty in the face, but the teeth is awkward which is very recognizable when comparing pictures of them with other asian nationalities.

    Kipi IS Shiori. I remember seeing that set a while back and was very impressed.

    But those Undeen and Shana cosplays are immaculate!
    Truly one of my favorite cosplayers, and not just because of her name. ;)

    I feel she is underrated by some, but, personally, I really see the time and effort she puts into her costumes versus some others whose are perfect to next-to-perfect... I see a little extra time and attention to detail in her work. Truly elite.

    You're...aware she doesn't make her own costumes, correct? She's a "promotional" model, I think. You've gotta love some of her cosplays, but it gets old after seeing the same expressions over and over again.

    she isn't underrated by some, she is just hated by a lot of people, not sure exactly why.

    With that said, I haven't seen any new cosplays of hers, since she's in China on an exchange or something like that.

    cgl hates her because she:

    1) doesn't make her own costumes (she gets them for free)
    2) is shooped within an inch of her life
    3)is paid to cosplay/model (and we all know cgl is full of sandy vaginas)

    You can Photoshop videos, too, you know. xD
    Also, unless there's some week-long video of her sewing and making her costumes, she could just be posing with materials. :/

    She has a hategroup because people post her alot on /cgl/, THE place for dramu and faggotry.

    I think she's wonderful. That last Shana image is day-brighteningly moe. She also works at the same cosplay cafe as my favorite cosplay idol. <3

    Some hate more than others.

    The folks at /toy/ are usually worth trusting though.

    Smaller boards tend to be/seem nicer.

    I'd just say they're jealous.

    A lot of people discount her for her facial and bodily features, but her cosplay creation skills make an excellent overall package, in my opinion.

    And I meant 'undine'. ^_^;;
    I used to have a phone made by 'Undeen'.
