14 Times This Pupper Inspired Cosplay Creativity

by Elana

Semba, a Japanese woman, and her adorable dog, appropriately named Chihuahua-mametaro, have been single-handedly redefining budget cosplay. With nothing more than scissors, markers, and cardboard, Semba's creativity has expanded from simple animals to complex fictional characters from our favorite movies.

Semba has found most of her inspiration in cinema, anime, and manga but nothing seems off the table of opportunity for this unique pairing. It turns out, working with a dog partner is even easier than one might expect. Semba says all she has to do when she wants Chihuahua-mametaro to get into position she simply tells, "go home!" and he gets straight to business. She says her technique works like a charm!

"The main character is the non-moving dog, and my art skill is secondary," Semba proudly states.
