BARIMOR COSPLAY AS YURI PLISETSKY AT #YOICONPH2018
Barimor is a cosplayer, artist, and fashion design student hailing from Saint Petersburg, Russia. His interest in cosplay began at the age of 13, when he came across photos of Japanese cosplayers. Since then, he has developed his skills in costume production, wig styling, and make-up. He displayed a special interest in genderbend cosplays, marrying his love for cosplay and fashion in his originally imagined genderbend renditions of Rapunzel (Tangled) and Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica).
It was his take on Yuri Plisetsky that gained Barimor the most acclaim. His first Yuri Plisetsky cosplay post went viral on Twitter, with more than 68,000 likes and more than 51,000 retweets. As a young Russian male with strong features and a strikingly expressive face, Barimor Cosplay may as well be Yuri Plisetsky himself
Barimor won the hearts of his Filipino fans in March 2017 through an extremely endearing Skype interview at the first Born To Make History: A Yuri!!! on ICE Fan Gathering. In March 2018, he goes from screen to stage. Aside from being Barimor’s first visit to the Philippines, Born To Make History: A Yuri!!! on ICE Fan Gathering 2 is Barimor’s first event as a headlining cosplay guest and his first international appearance.
