Ryuko Matoi is the tough, headstrong, and scrappy new blood at Honnouji Academy. Wielding her scissor-shaped long sword that can cut through life fibers, which the Goku uniforms that all students wear are made of. She battles against the student council (led by President Satsuki Kiryuin) as she searches for her father’s killer… the one who wields the other half of her scissor blade. She dons a powerful sailor uniform called a Kamui, which is named Senketsu. The Kamui is also made of Life Fibers and transforms her so she can take on Kiryuin and other foes she encounters.
Ryuko Matoi Cosplay by Megan Coffey
Megan Coffey‘s cosplay is based on the fan art design by artist Renareve where a classic twist on Ryuko’s Senketsu is portrayed. This gorgeous kimono style outfit really keeps with the classic color scheme Ryuko wears but adds creative texture with the different types of materials used, along with one of Senketsu’s signature “eyes” going across her shoulder, tying the cosplay together beautifully. And of course, Ryuko is prepared for anything she should face with her trusty scissor blade at her side.
