Up and Coming Cosplayers with Gumiho: Cosplayer Score Card

 

Cosplay Name: Gumiho

How You Came Up With Name:  Gumiho is Korean and basically means “fox” (in the mythological world, especially), it’s similar to the Japanese word “kitsune.” I love foxes very very much, especially the magical ones from tales and legends, and Ahri, my first league of legends main, is also a kitsune, so it came natural. Kitsune was a name that was already taken a lot in cosplay world, so I dug up the Korean equivalent to this word.  I’m happy with how I can shorten Gumiho to Gumi now as a nickname :3
