Kakegurui cosplayer hits the jackpot as stunning Yumeko Jabami

Yumeko Jabami is the main character of popular anime series ‘Kakegurui,’ and cosplaying pro ‘Sanet Cosplay’ has gone all-in to bring the compulsive gambler to life.

In Kakegurui, Yumeko Jabami flips the tables of Hyakkaou Private Academy by outplaying the school’s prestigious, oft-cruel students in the gambling circuit that determines their unrepentant caste system. 

In the real world, Sanet has flipped the script on the Kakegurui cosplay community by revamping her Yumeko look and adding a slew of props to complement the sophisticated aesthetic offered by her spot-on outfit, colored contact lenses and true-to-the-anime makeup. 

 

 

Yumeko transfers to Hyakkaou and immediately makes an impact on the school’s shady scene. As beautiful as she is crafty, the schoolgirl brings big money and bigger intuitiveness to the table—shaking up the system manipulated by a high-class student body to win money and, when debts go too far, slaves. 

But far from an easily turned “doggy” or “kitty” (as the school’s gambling circuit dubs its male and female slaves, respectively), Yumeko is a talented, unfazed gambler. Sanet’s cosplay perfectly embodies that, with piercing red eyes, a poised demeanor and a slew of playing cards surrounding her—much like the consequential games surrounding the manga-turned-show’s school.

 

 

Sanet’s earlier caption for this look included one of Yumeko’s more emotive quotes: “Doubt, anger, despair. You must feel as if you could scream, am I right?” But she also took a moment to appreciate her fans for being “absolute simps for Yumeko Jabami.”

Given the current movement for human rights, she shifted tone in her most recent caption for the look—noting that she is “trying to stay positive and keep cosplaying, because it’s something that truly makes me happy.”

While it’s vital to amplify and support the movement, it’s also important to take the time for self-care so that people don’t get burnt out.

Yumeko loves gambling and her eyes glow bright red once she gets into the flow of things.

With Sanet’s commitment to the important issues spanning her sharing important resources and providing a platform for other Black cosplayers, it’s vital that she is also taking the time to continue doing things that make her happy, too.

And fans of Kakegurui or cosplay will absolutely not complain if one of those things just happens to be recreating Yumeko to perfection.

Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
