Malaysian Hijab Cosplayer
Mineko @ S4O Febuary 2020
Year active: 2017 during Comic Fiesta (KLCC)
Perhaps what caught my attention was her cynical smile, on the day I first met her. The event was at TAGCC 2018 in Mid Valley. She didn’t want to give out her real name to me at that time, so I only got her screen name, as Mineko Daae.
Still a student, in computer science field. Apparently we become friends, as I was her photographer at that time. Most of her design in cosplay props are DIY. I usually contact her from time to time through whatsapp, if she is not busy studying for her exams or doing her computer science homework.
Mineko currently is in the rising Cosplayer, however she also does both hijab based and wig cosplay as well.
Current known favorite Anime characters - Todoroki (Boku no Hero Academia) and Phos (Houseki no kuni), and occasionally some BL characters.
