cpardo as Ataru and myself as Ryuunosuke with Ryuunosuke's original voice actress, Mayumi Tanaka. She's probably better known these days as the voice of Luffy in One Piece, but Urusei Yatsura was one of her earlier works. The cosplay was a bit last minute for me--I just borrowed cpardo's uniform and fixed up a wig--but we really wanted to show our love for UY.
She was so amazed that she had fans for Ryuunosuke! According to the translator, she hadn't realized her character was even on a DVD cover, since she's not a major character. She seemed really thrilled that I was cosplaying her, too...I only wish I could've done a better job.
