Hakken Ryou, a popular Malaysian cosplayer with over 1.5 million fans on Instagram alone, has been confusing fans with incredible transformations that constantly put her gender into question.
When it comes to recreating the look of popular male characters from such anime and video games as Naruto, Arknights, Demon Slayer, or Nobless, youâll have a tough time finding someone better than Hakken.Â Showing a mastery of makeup and hairstyling, as well as elegant digital editing, the Malaysian cosplayer is able to pull of the look of her chose character almost to perfection.Â Some of her photos seem literally pulled from the source material that inspired them, so itâs no wonder that she has millions of fans around the world.
Most of Hakkenâs fans know that she is a girl who just happens to be very good at crossing the gender barrier for her cosplay projects, but those who see her work for the first time and find out that she is actually female are genuinely shocked by this revelation.
âOMG A FEMALE?Â Omg..Â I never expected that..Â I tried observing her physical features and dude..Â THAT HAND CANT BE A GIRLâs.Â Anyways, I think i was rather surprised when i met Hakken in person to get her autograph, and when she spoke..Â I was confused.Â But HER I SHOOK HER HAND AND IT WAD LIKE WAIT..Â This canât be a girlâs hand..Â XD I STILL LOVE YOU HAKKEN!Â XD,âÂ one of her fans commented.
âPerfect guys are either taken, gay or is really female,â someone else wrote on Facebook.
While speculation about Hakken Ryouâs gender still abounds on social media, the truly remarkable thing about the popular cosplayer is her ability to bring such a diverse cast of characters, male or otherwise, to life.Â Just take a look at her Instagram and youâll see what I mean.
Other cosplayers have caused confusion with their gender-bending skills before.Â For example,Â Japanese âcosplay queenâ Rei DunoisÂ is actually a man, but you could never tell.Â The same goes for Chinese cosplayerÂ CROMEæéąç«ć°±æŻæç©șè. I guess you canât trust your eyes anymore
