Second Child: Asuka Langley by behindinfinity Second Child: Asuka Langley by behindinfinity
My name is Asuka Langley Soryu. Charmed, huh?


Most people see Asuka Langley Soryu exactly how she wants to be seen: an intelligent, self-confident and annoying bitch who cares about nothing and nobody, save herself. Yet, maybe that's not exactly what she is. Maybe if people chipped away at her exterior they'd find an insecure young girl who has nothing to give her an identity, nothing except her pride. Asuka is someone who felt that the world had rejected her, but wanted something better badly enough to keep going. Therefore, she told herself that she was better than everyone else, and that she didn't need their love or their attention - when, in fact, that was precisely what she wanted.

"Maybe I exist to find out why I exist."

I apologize in advance for EVAspamming our inboxes. XD (Might upload more pictures in a little while.) It's the last day before school starts again and I have a ton of work to catch up on so it's to make up for the following days when I might not be able to update. _| ̄|○

I know exactly what Asuka is. Cuz my Ex-wife had all the same screws loose. But if she had Asuka's charms. I'd have found a way. This totally looks like in the anime.

I've seen many Asuka cosplayers in my day, but this one left me absolutely breathless! I swear, those eyes just pierce through you, If I didn't know better, I would say she were looking right at me. Just dazzling. The A-10 Nerv connectors look a little big for hear head, but those eyes bring EVERYTHING together!

Great job!

Very, very close. It would be perfect, but, the lips are a bit too big, the skin is too pale, and the face is a wee-bit pudgy. But it's pretty good, considering how few flaws there are.

You EVAspam people, people COMMENTspam you. I think that sounds fair? (:

Personally, I adore the slightly creepy smirky look in this picture. The eyes are just piercing. In the good way, of course!

Could you tell me a little about how you attached the hair bauble-doo-dads to the wig?

smolly Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008
I'm not sure :D but i think its a bit scary for me because its asuka in real life but not the face I would picture her with. I guess I see Asuka with a different facial structure, but this is only a cosplay so I have nothing to be picky about
Reply
:iconrosiael:
rosiael Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2008
I see. Out of curiosity and future reference, what kind of facial structure are you imagining her with? (I know for instance my face is a bit too long and thin for her, and the wig emphasised it).

i see asuka with a pointy nose, small edged chin and smaller lips :P thats the sort of face I picture her with
