Um, that's Whitney, one of the Gym Leaders. This is Bianca:
Some cosplayers just take it more serious than others. I don't mean all the time, I just want to be ready to act the part if someone stops me to talk or something. I like cosplayers who answer people in character.
EDIT: Ohhh, I see. Apparently her name is Bianka in German(over where I live it's Whitney). So I guess you're technically right. I guess I mean Bel, then. And Bianca. Hmm... this is confusing.
well however you interpret cosplaying i wish for you to reach your goal to cosplay yumichika soon (n_n)
and uhm yeah it's rly a bit confusing... i mean i understand why the japanese names are changed but why also make a difference between english and geman? i mean yeah we have other names than you guys but at least some names could be the same... like bianka and bianca... ah i don't get it... (@_@)
First, the effect is partly because of the camera, I just combine black with blue and then I put a little white pencil and if the puppy is Full Metal Alchemist (was Riza Hawkaye) And the girl pokemon is in german: Bianka in japanese: Akane and spanish: White
I think for Bianca/Bel it's because they wanted to name her whatever the language's equivalent of 'white' was. It may be similar for other characters from the series. With others it could be for pronunciation stuff. Some of the names could be kind of hard to say for non-Japanese people. I don't know. Name changes happen for a lot of reasons.
@Unmei: you are welcome (^_^) uh "bel" isn't somewhere near the word "white" in german... (-__-) but yeah i guess you're right... they want that their names somewhat mirror their personalitys or whatever...
anywho i guess i myself can as well as post sth here too, even though i suck at drawing (¬_¬") nvm though...
beware these crappy drawings are even twice as bad b/c they were made in paint ugh go stone me (-_-;)
yeeah what can i say? lol the sandsibs from "naruto" (^_^) b/c i'm a big fan of those three (^_^) hehe anywayz for anyone who might wonder why i gave a spoiler warning; it's b/c of the swear word a** (-_o) oh and don't mind the random comments i wrote on the drawing... just ignore it (^_^)
here's part 2:
yeah like i said just ignore the random words you see... i just wrote whatever came to my mind... yeah don't need to mention there isn't something of value on my mind (¬_¬)
