This is not a review of the manga or the anime series of Aku no Hana, what i am going to try is to jot down essential intersections between the actual book of poems ‘Les Fleurs Du Mal’ by the French poet Charles Baudelaire and the series by Shuzo Oshimi. The significance of the actual book of poems and the author is always overshadowed by the other dominating aspects throughout the series that…

Usually anime girls are usually characterized by contrasting shades and types of hair, slim and curvy demeanor, unique eyes and sensual or distinguishing attire, which when combined, evolves into a cornerstone in sketching their character which can range from stubborn, dominating, tsundere and submissive to playful, seductive, naive or vengeful.

Janne Rusanen aka Ellfi is an outstanding cosplayer from Finland. He started cosplaying in 2006 by his debut at AnimeCon Finland as Kurosaki Ichigo. His perfection is something to be inspired from. And he is HOT! Follow him Facebook, DeviantArt, WorldCosplay, Twitter and Instagram.
–Interview by Tanya Kaushik
TK: Why the alias ‘Elffi’?
JR: When I was young I played Warhammer Fantasy Battle a lot with High Elves. I’ve always loved elves a lot. One day over 10 years ago I just started using this nick and it has stayed the same since that. The first three letters “Elf” means an Elf and the 2 last letters “fi” are short for Finland.
TK: Your Props are more than perfect. They are just brilliant. What should a cosplayer keep in mind for making the ideal prop?
JR: Innovation is the most important thing. I always try to invent new techniques while working on my costumes. Just look around you. You can use _anything_ to build a prop. An empty toilet roll, old books, broken electronics or just some basic cardboard boxes! And remember to keep your stuff light weighted.
TK: Speaking about props, the ‘Angel Arm’ you made for your ‘Vash the Stampede’ cosplay was amazing. And I heard you made it in two days! How did you manage to make something that massive so perfectly and so fast?
JR: Well I didn’t have any time to sleep. I had the whole concept in my head already so it was easy to start working on it. I made it out of camping mattresses and fake leather to keep the weight under 5 kilos. The little errors I made in rush were covered by nice paint job. I always tend to say that you can fix or save anything with good painting skills.
TK: In every cosplayer’s life there comes a moment when he/she is at the point of giving up while trying creating a prop or a costume which after hundreds of tries is not working out. What do you do then?
JR: I need my artistic flow to work on my costume. I push away all the distractions: internet, friends and work when I work on my stuff. I just concentrate on my costume 24/7. When something doesn’t work I take a nap and then try again. It usually helps.
TK: Most of cosplays have the element of body painting, for example Kamina, Gilgamesh, Jecht, and etcetera. And they are really precisely done. Do you do them alone or you get help? What would you suggest other cosplayers to achieve the perfect body paint art?
JR: I love to do everything by myself. It’s sometimes very difficult though. For a good body paint / tattoos I recommend using contact paper. It’s the transparent plastic sheet with glue used for covering books in libraries. Just draw the tattoo on the contact paper, cut it out and you have a perfect template in your hands! Then you just stick it in your skin and use a makeup sponge with paint to finish the tattoo.
TK: What is your favorite anime series?
JR: I watch a lot of anime. Few years ago I calculated the episodes I’ve seen and got over 10,000 episodes before I got distracted. I mostly watch long shounen series like One Piece, Naruto, Bleach and Hunter x Hunter. Currently my favorite airing series are: Haikyuu, Sword art Online, One Piece, Akame ga Kill and Hunter x Hunter.
TK: You have won so many cosplay competitions and now you mostly judge them. What do you look in cosplay? For you, what makes a cosplay good or bad?
JR: I look at the whole concept. I’ve seen many awesome costumes with good prop and sewing skills but poorly made wigs&makeup. I would recommend people to polish the skills they are not so good in. Especially boys have problems with makeup and wig styling so I’ve been trying to help fellow male cosplayers to learn those skills. They are essential to make a good costume.
TK: Who is your cosplay crush?
JR: I don’t have any cosplay crushes.
TK: What do you do when you are not cosplaying or making a cosplay? What do you do in your free time?
JR: In my free time I go to gym or geocaching. I also spend a lot of time playing games and watching movies with my friends. We also do board game evenings couple of times every month.
TK: Any final advice you’d like to give to the up-and-coming cosplayers out there?
JR: Don’t try to reach the stars. Start with something simple, ask for help from your friends, learn to use Google to find tutorials and tips and remember to start making your costume EARLY enough before the convention. One problem we all cosplayers got is the lack of time to finish our costume before the con weekend. That’s what my Facebook feed is full, people panicking and trying to rush the costume to finish it in time! Lol.
Here are some other cosplays done by ElffiInterview With A Cosplayer: Elffi Janne Rusanen aka Ellfi is an outstanding cosplayer from Finland. He started cosplaying in 2006 by his debut at AnimeCon Finland as Kurosaki Ichigo.
Isaac and Miria are a pair of clueless and eccentric partner-in-crime lovers who dress up in costumes and commit strange robberies, such as stealing candy and even the entrance door of a museum.
Within the series, set during the Prohibition-era of the United States, Isaac and Miria “are a pair of idiotic lovers and thieves” who are portrayed as “always enthusiastic and optimistic”.
They are often mistaken for performers because of the variety of disguises they employ during their heists, such as dressing up as mummies or as the Tramp.
The duo commit a variety of eccentric robberies, including attempting to steal time by stealing watches, trying to stop anyone from entering a museum by stealing the entrance and stealing the Genoard family fortune to prevent the family from fighting over it.
Miria exhibits a complete trust in Isaac and supports anything he says no matter how ridiculous it is and often goes as far to mimic his body language and his speech, although she often does not really know what she is saying.
Although the pair are very idiotic, Isaac is not completely stupid and there are occasions that shows that he displays his inner intelligence. He is able to recognize a pair of plainclothes officers because he claims that he is familiar with their speech style.Isaac and Miria may have been born into wealthy families because they state that their parents’ homes and the Genoard mansion have similar exteriors.
In Prohibition era United States. In 1930, the duo attempt to steal the entire household of the mafia families of Genoard (which they succeed) and Martillo, incident on which they become unintentionally immortal after mistaking the Grand Panacea for alcohol and drinking it at a celebration.
The next year, after attempting gold mining in California without any luck, they board the Flying Pussyfoot express train and survived the bloody hijacking that occurs.
Isaac is arrested for various thefts in 1934 and imprisoned on Alcatraz, but released in the same year, later reuniting with Miria. The pair continue to live happily, finally realizing they are immortal 67 years later, in 2001, after stealing some cellphones inManhattan.
Immortality aside, they possess a striking amount of luck, having escaped numerous dangerous situations throughout the series without serious injury (it took them roughly 70 years to realize they were immortal).
They’re both very charismatic and “sprinkle happiness without noticing.”
They also exhibit a somewhat indomitable will as is suggested by their headstrong personalities. Both are also proficient in the use of firearms, blunt instruments and unarmed combat.

It was going to be an eventful Saturday, the 30th of August as it was the time of the month when our favorite anime club the Delhi Anime Club (DAC) had one of its monthly group meetings, but this time it was not just a group meeting, it was THE group meeting. The reason for this distinction was the venue, it was held at the auditorium of the –drum roll please– Japan Foundation!! Yes you read right, the Japan Foundation located in Lajpat Nagar, who were kind enough to let us host our meet there. The admins had organized fun activities this time around to make this a memorable experience for everyone.
Members started coming in at around 11:00 AM, the humble auditorium with it’s empty seats was starting to fill up. There were greetings, handshakes, hugs and smiles all around the room as members met their friends who had just arrived. At 12:00 PM, it was time for the first activity, the anime movie screening; the movie that was screened was “Sakasama No Patema (Patema Inverted)” by Purple Cow Studios. The story is about two races of humans who are gravitationally attracted in opposite directions, when a girl from one of these two races who’s name is Patema falls in love with a boy from the other race who’s name is Eiji, they must hold onto each other (LITERALLY) and fight against the government to unite their two races. The movie got mixed reviews from the members, with some saying it was unbelievably confusing and others saying it was quite interesting; though almost everybody had the same question, ”Are we standing the right side up?”. After the movie ended, everybody was given half an hour to grab a bite and come back for the next activity.
The next activity could be considered the main attraction of the August meet, the KARAOKE COMPETITION! There were 12 songs among which one was a duet and one was a quartet, the prizes were boxes of Pocky (in varying sizes and flavor). First prize was a large box of blueberry pocky, which was won by Aya Kan for singing “By My Side” from the Anime Naruto. Second prize was green tea flavored pocky, won by Abhishek Dixit for singing “The Other Side” from Kuroko No Basuke and last but not least, third price was a box of regular pocky won by Meghna Singh for singing “Yui-Life” from Bleach. We also had a special performance by our very own Masaya-san who was the organizer of the whole Karaoke activity.
After Karaoke everybody got together for some group pictures as well as some hilarious pictures with friends, the meet ended with one final group picture, after which everybody said their farewells and slowly (reluctantly) began leaving the Japan Foundation building.
