Takei’s Cosplay Project for Otakon?

Yesterday, Hiroyuki Takei started a new twitter account, in which he posted an image of something he was making. Today, he posted an additional image and 3 more tweets (with some rough English translations followed):


Eh… I’m nervous…


反応ありすぎてびっくりしました。 いろいろ気をつけます。 これからもよろしくお願いします。

I was surprised by this reaction. Many positive messages. Thank you for all of them.

This is probably in regards to him creating a new Twitter account, which is already at 2000 followers (1/5th of his main account’s).


In order to be more active… Part 2


So this is clearly connected to yesterday’s tweet, as it has the previous design now being shown in a 3D space. The context of being “active” wasn’t really clear, but I think it’s related to being active in a public-space… such as appearing at Otakon! I think he’s going to make a mask for wearing at Otakon! If you take a look at his most photo from yesterday, and look at it from the side, it appears that it will match up with his self-portrait!

Mask Design

With the latest image, we can see the scale… which would be big enough to fit his head! I assume we’ll see some more pictures in the upcoming days as he’s working on it!

Both Hiroyuki Takei and Romi Park will be at Otakon 2015 on July 24th through July 26th, 2015 in the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
