Unhappy Saya, one of the Asian Cosplay idols have passed away

Even thought I'm not one of her fans but since I don't see any topics in here that inform this bad news, I decide to make it myself to inform Saya's fans who probably visiting cosplay.com





http://www.google.co.jp/search?q=Say...ed=0CAkQpwUoAA

From what I see on the youtube video informing her passing which uploaded around 3 weeks ago, there are many of her fans who mourn and feel sad about for her passing. To anyone who not know, Saya is one of Asian Cosplay idols which can be placed in the same level as Arisa and Kipi. She passed away 15 March ago due to hair bleaching poisoning. I heard she come from a poor family so she prefer to use her real hair to save money rather than buying wigs each moment she is doing Cosplay which also for more realistic purpose.

It seems her passing not become big news in Japan since her passing day are only 4 days after the earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan so the media and Japanese not focused on her during those moments.

Yea, the chemical could sep into your skin hair and to your body system especially when you are sweating. Not to mention when you carelessly eat something when you are bleaching your hair.

It's a shame really. I didn't follow her fandom or anything but still sad.

By hair bleach poisoning, did she drink it? Thats what Google thinks it is. Although I initially though it was to do with too much bleach absorbing into the skin & eventually the brain or causing tumours etc.

well, nobody really knew how she died. there are alot of rumours, like this one, but if you see the facebook memorial page made by her family and friends, it says they don't know the cause of her death.

Proof: http://www.facebook.com/notes/saya-c...63516890372698

i didn't anything about her, nor did i follow her or fans, just setting this her if people want to know. it's sad to know this happened.

I knew someone who was bleaching his hair and it started to leak down his face and gave him severe rashes and swelling so that shit can do some serious damage. I am unfamilliar with this young woman but its sad that she lost her life.

That's really unfortunate. I don't follow cosplay idols or anything but its really sad to see a fellow cosplayer pass away. It looks like she did some pretty costumes.

Some photoes look to be more wigs then colored hair. I first heard this news few weeks back on Sankaku actually.

Guess I'll be staying away from hair bleaching. I've had my hair colored once many years ago.

I guess we won't ever know, unless someone pays for the autopsy report.

Truely sad. D: She was a great cosplayer. I sometimes would follow her for a while, but I never remembered to keep up. Pretty unexpected. Even more unexpected that there's a such thing as bleach poisoning. x_x

You learn many new things everyday, and you should be glad to open this topic to know about the danger of bleaching.

This is sad ='/ Prayers for her and her family as well as everyone else in Japan. Never heard of her or know her fandoms but she looks like an excellent cosplayer. It is rly sad to see someone pass away bc of their passion for a hobby without the proper funding and resorting to dangerous methods.

On another note anyone else notice Pak's post are different than usual żO_o?

Excuse me??? Spread the news that "oh, well, she died." to trick her fans?
That's not even funny. That's just crude. If I, (if I would be a fan of her) would ever meet her, I would probably punch her in the face. ssh -.-""
