Jojo: the stylish Speedwagon comes to life in fantastic female cosplay
Before the introduction of the Stand concept, the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure it was very different, the main opponents were represented by vampires, who became vampires due to the power of the stone mask, and the fights in HIrohiko Araki’s work were based on the Concentric Waves technique.
This technique allowed, by controlling breathing, the production of an energy very similar to that of the sun’s rays, and therefore capable of wounding vampires like Dio Brando and Cars. The first two generations of the Joestar family, represented by Jonathan in Phantom Blood and by Joseph in Battle Tendency, were profoundly different from the following, not only in terms of the fighting factor, but also in the presence of iconic characters, such as Robert E. O. Speedwagon.
Despite not being a fighter, his foundation has played an important role in the series, also introducing a very particular aesthetic, an element that will later become more and more present and will represent a symbol of Jojo’s history. Speedwagon initially appears as the leader of a small group of thieves., later becoming one of the main characters who will follow Jonathan on his journey of revenge, and will be Joseph’s mentor.
To pay tribute to this character, the passionate @a_wild_raggy wanted to dedicate the magnificent cosplay that you can see in the images shown at the bottom of the news. Note the care to recreate the design made by Araki, complete with the iconic cylinder and deep scar on the left side of the face. Let us know what you think of this interpretation in the comment section.
Let’s remember that the Joestar dynasty has obtained a dedicated theme park, and we leave you with a nice clip that shows how passersby perceive the fighting.
