Cosplayers stun in Cowboy Bebop costumes

Many of us grew up watching anime series such as the science fiction show Cowboy Bebop, so the live-action adaptation of the anime on Netflix is indeed a major event for fans, especially for Filipino cosplayers Awie De Guzman and Prince De Guzman.

In fact, because of their excitement about the show, they actually cosplayed as the live-action Cowboy Bebop‘s main characters.

Dressed in badass leather outfits and wearing a short hair wig, Awie was in character when she cosplayed Faye Valentine, one of the hunter members of the Bebop ship. While her character looks young, Faye is actually an old woman who was put in suspended animation for 54 years after a space shuttle accident.

Prince as Spike Spiegel

Donning a formal blue suit and wearing curly locks, Prince easily resembled Spike Spiegel, a member of the Bebop crew who is reeling from his past as a former member of a syndicate.
