Pinky:cos Rei & Asuka
Both Kokoro and her best friend Moe are members of their school cosplay clubs. Here they have both dressed up as their favorite anime characters; Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley from Neon Genesis Evangelion (NGE).
Pinky:cos are Pinky girls cosplaying as popular anime or manga figures such as Rei and Asuka, or as fictional characters (the Animate girls). The concept has been divided into two lines; first the P:kyara – P:characters, as exemplified by Tsukihime, the Fighters, and the TenTen trio, and secondly the P:corabo – P:collaboration, examples coming from Amusement – Taito’s Post Pet and Space Invader Pinkys, as well as the Banpresto Super Lovers; Toys – Pinky:Q with scooter; Shop – MCC and Animate Pinkys.
Cool bluehaired Rei Ayanami is a lonely girl. The First Children (sic), she is the pilot of EVA Unit 00. Wiki entry.
Both girls comes with a small backpack, and carry a speared angel, the baddies in NGE.
The cool EVA duo turned out to be so popular that new versions were issued, both reissues of the originals, and new packages with different contents.
The next Gainax release came already in the summer of 2007. Here both girls came in large packs with a school uniform, extra clothing and accessories, including stands. In this set, the head and neck use the new ball joint design.
What look like a set of cute extra ears are somewhat exaggerated Pinky versions of the neural interface clips that help the girls to psychically control their EVA Units. Asuka likes to use hers as hair clips too. Thanks for the info, Sophie!
If the Pokéball had existed when NGE was created, the girls would probably have fared much better against the evil angels. These would simply have been sucked into the ball by the graviton and kawaii waves that it emits.
The EVA pair is one of those Pinky products which has been copied. Beware of the bootleg Pinkys which often are of inferior quality and doesn’t mix and match well with the regular product. The bootlegs lack the VANCE copyright note and usually are packed differently from the originals.
