KOWAI KAWAII COSPLAY
Kowai Kawaii Cosplay is what you get when you combine the scary cute antics of two best friends! (Kowai means scary; kawaii means cute!)Together, they know about a random assortment of things….from true crime to magical girls!
Violet (Kowai) is a horror addict that only pauses Friday the 13th for Game of Thrones. When she’s not pining for the Hound, Violet is collecting Blu-rays and remembering the days when anime was about blood and violence, not romance.
Sasha (Kawaii) is a glitter and all things cute things-loving Japanophile that loves to cook. She spends her time trying to wear more pink, visiting the library, making tea that she forgets to drink until it’s too cold.
