Image of The Day: The Best ‘Attack on Titan’ Cosplay EVER

Japanese manga series Attack on Titan has received quite a bit of fame since it began in 2009. The past few years alone have been an indicator of the manga’s large success.

In 2011, Attack on Titan won the Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category. Nearly all of the volumes made it onto The New York Times Manga Best Seller list  and the Young Adult Library Services Association in the United States named the series one of its “Great Graphic Novels for Teens.” So far, over 22 million copies have been sold in Japan.

So what sort of manga can possibly attract this much attention? Well Attack on Titans happens to be about gigantic humanoid creatures called Titans who devour and destroy humans. After a massive attack, the remaining humans were left to live confined in concrete walls. After a 100-year absence, the Titans mysteriously reappear and humans must deal with the vicious creatures once more.

Clearly, this violent series isn’t the usual dose of “cute” that our Audrey readers typically prefer, but this little girl is here to prove to you that she can make absolutely anything cute.

This adorable bit of cosplay is from the Fancy Frontier comic and cosplay event in Taiwan. The cutie is dressed as Attack on Titan character Sasha Braus. The character is known to have a large appetite so, to our delight, the tiny girl appears to be nibbling away at food.

Image of The Day: These Naptime Friends Will Warm Your Heart

What’s better than an adorable little Asian baby? How about an adorable Asian baby posing with his best friend.. who happens to be an equally cute dog?

Recently, a photoset of this duo has been making its way around social media sites and is quickly becoming a viral sensation. After looking through these pictures, it obvious that the popularity of these two best friends was inevitable. Simply wrapping them up in a blanket and having them sleep made many viewers squeal.

Although it seems that the pair have just entered online popularity, the two have actually been around for quite some time now.

Maru, the shiba ina puppy, and Issa, the adorable two-year-old boy, have already been internet sensations to Japanese audiences. Their facebook has been up and running since May 2012 and they have already gathered nearly 40,000 likes in less than a year.

Image of The Day: CUTEST Miyazaki-Themed Cosplay Ever

When news broke out that Hayao Miyazaki was retiring, fans everywhere wished it was simply a false rumor. For years, Miyazaki brought us whimsical animations such as My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Mononoke. In 2003, the Ghibli studio co-founder won an Oscar for his breathtaking feature film, Spirited Away.

Although Miyazaki has shown a mastery of his craft, he has firmly stated that he is done with films. The 72-year-old confirmed that his film The Wind Rises is his last. The film, which focuses on a fictional biography of Japan’s Zero airplane creator Jiro Horikoshi, has already become a box-office hit in Japan since its release in July.

With a handful of awards, critical acclaim, and worldwide recognition, Miyazaki will retire knowing that he achieved what he set out to do. According to CBC News, Miyazaki commented, “I wanted to convey the message to children that this life is worth living. This message has not changed.”

While our hearts are saddened by the finale of a talented individual, his work continues to live on. In this case, it does so in quite an adorable way. The giant red bow, stuffed animal cat, and magic broomstick are all part of this adorable cosplay of Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service.

The animated film follows a young witch, Kiki, who must navigate through her adolescent years. As cute as the animated version was, we have to admit that the real version of Kiki is even better.

Aila Wang: Fashion Week’s Youngest (and Most Adorable!) Style Star

Front-row at the latest Alexander Wang show was a who’s who of the fashion world’s biggest names and brightest young things, including Carine Roitfeld, photographer Terry Richardson, actress Kerry Washington, rapper Kanye West and actress Zoe Kravitz. However, only one person was lucky enough to don Wang’s latest collection even before it debuted down the runway. Dressed in a white “Parental Advisory” tee, black skirt, and Jordan slides, 4-year-old Aila Wang already had the show’s ’90s, logo-driven theme on lock.

Just who is this young style starlet? The niece of designer Alexander Wang, Aila first caught our attention when a photo of her (below) backstage at her uncle’s eponymous show circulated across fashion blogs some seasons back. With her updo and round cheeks, she looked helplessly cute. But her all-black outfit, complete with a fur coat, baby Chanel and high-tops, gave us an unusual case of sartorial envy.

She’s become a front-row staple at her uncle’s famed runway shows for a handful of seasons now, all while creating quite a name for herself in the street-style department. Successfully treading the fine line between cutting edge and adorable, this toddler manages to give even the most seasoned style vets a run for their money.

Scroll down for more of Aila’s enviable looks.
