Geek It! Anime Spotlight: Cosplayer YUEGENE FAY

YUEGENE FAY is Thailand’s top-ranking cosplayer who is internationally well-renowned for her portrayal of various characters from the realms of manga, anime, gaming and music.

What originally began as a small hobby back in 2000 has now become a significant part of her life. In the early stages of her cosplay career, Yuegene began cosplaying her favourite music personalities such as Junji (Kiryu), Toshiya (Dir En Grey), and Kamui Gakupo (Vocaloid). Unlike most cosplayers who began their career cosplaying manga/anime characters, Yuegene’s musical origin positions Yuegene on a unique level that sets her apart from others.

However, that didn’t stop Yuegene from expanding her interests and venturing into other hobbies such as gaming and anime. Not long after her career kicked off, Yuegene began cosplaying fan-favourite anime characters to perfection. Some of her most popular cosplays include Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan), Rin Matsuoka (Free! Iwatobi Swim Club), and Mikoto Suoh (K).

Worshipped on the same level as fellow cosplayers REIKA and KANAME, there is no doubt that Yuegene is well-liked by the anime community. Since her debut, Yuegene is Thailand’s cosplay ambassador who shares her love for cosplay with enthusiasts around the world. Not only has she represented Thailand at the World Cosplay Summit (2007 and 2008), but Yuegene is often invited to participate as a judge and/or special guest at various anime conventions. 

In less than two weeks time, Yuegene Fay will be making her first appearance at SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show 2016 on August 20th and 21st. We absolutely cannot wait to see her in action! Until then, check out her official page [here] and her awesome cosplays below!
