Haruka Hourou

Haruka Hourou

Hihi! I'm Haruka Hourou, part-time cosplayer, full time potato.

I've been watching anime since I was about 7 years old, and from then my love of anime and Japanese culture morphed into my love of cosplay today. I've been cosplaying for three years, and making my own costumes for two, and my absolute favorite thing about this hobby is the community that surrounds it how it inspires so much creativity and transformation!

My favorite cosplay to wear is definitely Prince Soma from Black Butler, he's the first cosplay costume I ever made and he's been so much fun to portray! My next cosplay projects are Velvet and Queen Mercedes from Odin Sphere, as well as Star Guardian Jinx! I'm most excited about Mercedes because I can't wait to experiment on creating her wings and certain aspects of her costume!

The first convention I ever went to was AnimeFest back in 2008, I went to a few more Afest conventions following that and then took a break for a couple years when I started college, my convention life picked back up my junior year of college when I went to my first Akon convention in 2015, and since then I've gone to San Japan, Anime Matsuri and a few Comic Cons here in Texas.

I enjoy cosplaying, sewing, sketching and more recently gaming and streaming!

You can find me on Instagram @haruka_hourou and twitch.tv/HarukaHourou if you'd like to know more or wanna just chat :)
