This cosplayer makes female characters look stunning, and she also nails the pretty boy look too.

Anime characters from Japan have a huge following at home and abroad, with fans around the world often expressing their loyalty to some of their favourites with a spot of creative cosplay.

While many choose to cosplay as characters matching their own gender, sometimes the love for Japanese characters is too great to let gender box them in, and here to prove it is a gorgeous Korean woman called Seunghyo.

Dressed up as Tomoyo from Cardcaptor Sakura, Seunghyo is captivatingly beautiful. Despite her ability to bring female characters to life in the real world, though, Seunghyo also has a thing for dressing up as male characters too.

▼ Here she strikes a pose as Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto.

Seunghyo’s male character cosplay is so well done it’s easy to forget that the person underneath the well-styled wigs and carefully applied makeup is actually a woman.
