NELLIEL YOUR ODELSCHWANCK, OR NELL FOR THE FRIENDS IN BLEACH, NOW GET AN IDEAL COSPLAY FOR THIS CHRISTMAS. LET’S GIVE IT A GOOD LOOK
Although Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck, or simply Nell, doesn’t appear as much in Bleach, she has earned a place in the hearts of fans. The first time she appeared on the series, she had the appearance of a little girl.
That was in the Hueco Mundo saga, one of the main ones in Tite Kubo’s work. She appeared next to her companions, Pesche and Dondochakka, and appeared to be weak. Kurosaki Ichigo took pity on Nell and let her accompany her.
NELL IS STILL VERY POPULAR IN BLEACH
It was later that he revealed his true form, and that in reality, it was the Third Sword, a character endowed with tremendous power. But unlike other Arrancar and Hollow, she was much more approachable and friendly.
In fact, Nell had a special feeling for Ichigo, and whenever she could she hugged him. That both in its small and larger form. The latter was very embarrassing to the surrogate shinigami, but it only happened a few times.
It is precisely her appearance as an adult that has become much more popular with Bleach fans. That is why there are many products based on it, especially figures from various manufacturers.
The same can be said for fan arts, and of course, cosplays. In the latter case, most people seek to stick as closely as possible to their image. On past occasions we have shared our efforts in this regard.
THIS COSPLAY HAS THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS
However, this time a cosplayer, Hime (@aero_cat) decided to give her characterization a more Christmas touch. So what she did was retain the horned skull that Nell wears.
The same can be said for her turquoise green hair, and the makeup on her face. But the rest of the costume that she wears, red and white, is never worn by her in the manga and anime. The same can be said of the hat she wears, and the black stockings.
It is an ideal outfit for the Christmas season. Maybe that’s what Nelliel Tu Odelschwanck would have looked like if she’d ever celebrated Christmas in Bleach.
So in the case of this cosplay we cannot speak of fidelity, but of creativity. It’s certainly interesting that Hime has decided to do a similar performance, very much in keeping with this season. Perhaps what is most missed in this characterization is Nell’s sword.
