The Kano Sisters' "Art Cosplay"

If you have an interest in anime and cosplay, chances are you have seen images of the Kano Sisters. Known for their larger than life personas based around their extravagant lifestyles and buxom figures, they periodically engage in photo shoots of what they call "art cosplay." For example, as we've reported, younger sister Mika cosplayed Boa Hancock from One Piece and Bruno Bucciarati from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure...

...older sister Kyoko played Melone from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure...

...and both of them recently cosplayed Fujiko Mine from Lupin III to honor the memory of the late Monkey Punch.


Mika as "Monster Princess" Do-S

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure certainly has its share of appealing and unique characters to cosplay, but it looks like the Kano Sisters have now focused their attention on One Punch Man. With the anime series now enjoying its second season, the Monster Association is wreaking havoc on the city.

Understandably, younger sister Mika has taken a liking to "Monster Princess" Do-S, a Demon-level Mysterious Being and a member of the Monster Association who dresses in a BDSM outfit made of straps and held by metal rings. An extremely powerful being and an expert whip specialist, she uses her strength and mind control powers in battle and can turn people into "love slaves" after flailing them with her spiked whip.

As always, Mika's attention to detail in the costume is impeccable, right down to the S-symbol over the filters of the mask and the spiked whip (see links below).

Fans of One Punch Man and the Kano Sisters may be wondering if other One Punch Man characters will be next. Perhaps Fubuki?


If you'd like to see more pictures of Mika's fabulous Do-S cosplay, check out that entry on the sisters' Line blog or their Ameba blog. It's a two-parter, so if you want to see ALL the pictures, be sure to check out Part 2 (Line blog | Ameba blog) as well. You can also keep up with the sisters' cosplay activities on their Instagram account.


We'd also like to thank game designer and illustrator DJ Kooooo for allowing us to use his illustration of Do-S in our article. Here it is uncropped:
