YAKI started cosplaying since 2001. She is currently a member of China-based popular cosplay association Silence Snary (杭州304). She is best known for emerging as the (team) champion of the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) China qualification round in 2005. Having over 10 years of cosplay experience under her belt, she was named by the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China to participate in the Russia-China Cultural Festival 2010 held in Russia as one of the guest performers representing China.
YAKI's mesmerizing cosplays gained tremendous attention and have frequently been equated as distinctively lifelike. She excels in historic/oriental themed cosplays which often requires heavy attention to presentation of details. Her notable cosplays include Ina from the video game "Samurai Warriors 2", Li Changge from the novel series "A Long Song", Chen Yue and Gu Zhilan from the MMORPG "Sword Heroes' Fate 3", and many more.
Till date, YAKI has been invited to participate at various conventions in China and Taiwan, actively contributing to the ACG scene by way of taking up roles such as guest performer and cosplay competition panel judge. Eager in sharing her love and passion in cosplay, she started to participate in stage plays since 2010 with the aim of bringing fresh ideas to the table. Few of her stage play appearances include "Legends of the Monkey King – Messing in the Heavenly Palace" and "Hot Blood General Yang".
This year, AniManGaki 2015 is honoured to have YAKI serving as our guest judge for Cosplay Olympics 2015! Be sure to catch her her debut cosplay appearance in South East Asia only at AniManGaki 2015!
