A cosplayer is a person who likes to dress like other famous people or TV, movie, comic and game characters. As you can understand, it requires great talent in order to achieve the perfect and detailed copied look of another person or character. Merisiel Irum is a well-known cosplayer, who makes a career out of what started to be just a hobby. She has many devoted fans and her work is considered excellent among her peers.
Merisiel has made a name for herself for all the amazing cosplays that she has done during the past few years.
Her successful transformations have made her very popular on Instagram, where she has more than 90,000 followers.
Before starting her own career, she attended the Making Beauty Academy in Milan, Italy.
2015 was a big year for her, since she modeled for L’Oreal in the brand’s fall/winter campaign.
Cosplay was an increasing hobby in the 1990s mainly in Asian countries and became a significant aspect of their pop culture.
The World Cosplay Summit is the most famous competition for those who want to complete in cosplaying.
Merisiel is now only 26 years old and I am pretty sure that we will hear a lot more in the future about her.
Cosplay may not be very famous in Europe and the west world, but Japan and other Asian countries are very devoted to it. Two magazines about the hobby are being published in Japan and there have been quite a few reality tv shows and documentaries shown on TV.
