WHY ARE THE SPIRAL CATS FAMOUS?
If you ask us, the Spiral Cats are total Cosplay rock stars! They’re gorgeous, friendly, sexy, and they look like miniature action figures! No wonder the biggest names in cosplay pay fortunes to book them!
Ever since they went pro, the League of Legends based group has been courted by big-name clients such as Nixon, Blizzard Entertainment, Neowitz Games, NCSOFT, and Riot Games, among others. See them strutting their stuff at Anime Expo to get a feel for the Spiral Cats in action! (source).
HOW DID THE SPIRAL CATS GET STARTED?
Spiral Cats started as a venture by a group of co-workers at the game development company that Tasha was working for, doing graphic design, backgrounds, and 3D effects. She and Ren began the group in 2009. They were joined by Timayo in 2010 and by Miyuko in 2011.
Although many of the original cats have strayed, team captain Tasha, along with recruit Doremi, continues to hold down the SC fort! (source).
THE SPIRAL “TOP” CATS
So many Spiral Cats, so little time! How can you choose? Luckily, we narrowed it down to the few you’ve been asking to hear more about, namely Tasha, Doremi, and Miyuki!
Without further ado, here’s the scoop on the Spiral Cat top cats!
WHO IS TASHA SPIRAL CAT?
Without a doubt, the cat that you’ve been the most curious about is Tasha! The Spiral Cats Team leader, Go-eun, in her native South Korean tongue, has been cosplaying since 1999.
She got bit by the Cosplay bug when her parents took her to a Cosplay event when she was young. Looks like mom and dad taught Tasha well!
WHO IS SPIRAL CAT DOREMI?
Yes, that is Doremi as in the “Do-Re-Mi” song from the “Sound of Music,” but her actual name is Lee Hye-min! She got into cosplay through manga and became an official Spiral Cat in 2013. Since then, she’s been Tasha’s main girl! You go, Doremi! You’re one loyal cat!
WHO IS SPIRAL CAT MIYUKO?
She may be gone from the band, but she sure ain’t forgotten in the Cosplay universe! South Korean cutie, Miyuko (Kang-Yun Jin), found her passion for cosplay through Korea Comic World, (compare to Japan’s ComicNet) in 2006.
After her two-year stint with the Cats, ending in 2013, Miyuko went on to make a name for herself as Aza Miyuko, cosplaying all of our fave Cosplay characters, and looking as pretty as, well, all of her pictures! Hit up her Fanpage on Facebook for updates, and see for yourself! (source)
