Collaborative Potential with Indian Artists and Creators!?
Singing Cosplay Hikari is happy to collaborate with artists and other creators (singers, dancers, guitarists, pianists, etc) from all across India! She is active on her Instagram platform and posts every day in her Rei Ayanami’s cosplay. Her collaboration with the J-Pop band Asianz has also received rave reviews on TikTok and Instagram.
Although she is cosplaying as Rei Ayanami, Hikari aims to showcase much more than just Rei Ayanami’s world, including popular characters from famous anime, games, and Vocaloids. She regularly uploads videos of her cover songs and cosplay photos on social media platforms.
Japan has a long tradition of celebrating food culture and festivals specially designated days. She aims to cosplay with such themes in mind too, most recently Melon Day on January 6th and the School starting the day on January 7th.
Even though she has made her debut recently, let us send across our positive love and support from India!
