So I’m scrolling my feed of posts mourning Mamba, and other stuff. Then this very accurate, cool looking cosplay comes in the screen! I just had to share it with all my fellow Junkies!
This young man is Protege Cosplay, a talented cosplayer who happened to be featured in the winter 2019 issue of Creative Cosplay Magazine. Protege is an avid anime, comic and game junkie if one goes by his pictures. More impressive is that he is an active K1 fighter, and assistant instructor at a gym in Deleware.
Creative Cosplay Magazine named him Male Cosplayer of the Season. In his profile he writes:
As a lifelong martial artist, I used to pretend I was all manner of characters ince the age I started walking. Once I learned about cosplaying, it just seemed like a logical next step! I get to see what they’d look like If They[sic] had my face! Because of that I tend not to wear wigs for my cosplays. I’m actually growing my hair out now so I can do some newer, long haired characters. I can’t wait!
This looks to be one of the first of those long-haired cosplays he was talking about, and you killed it fam! Go check him out on the ‘Gram at Protoge Cosplay. Also give some love to the photographer ThatodPhotography
