Layla is sporting Naoto’s customary black gakuran jacket and cap, striking blue hair and blue bell-bottom trousers add some flare (see what I did there?), to what could have been a very monotone ensemble; the blue colors add life to the typical blackness of Japanese uniforms (it’s also accurate which is always a bonus!) For those fans of Naoto, Layla also gives us the answer to the often-pondered question regarding Naoto’s lingerie preference – but I don’t want to spoil the surprise for you!
This cosplay is all about character and atmosphere, the steam-filled subway feels like a fitting backdrop for Layla as she steps into the Naoto’s persona and flawlessly draws us into a much more intimate side of Naoto. The masterstroke from Cosplay Erotica with this set is their choice of Layla for the role of Naoto; her body is the perfect balance of absolutely perfect and perfectly understated matching both the outfit and the character.
The real magic of this set is revealed the further in you get, from the first image to the last Layla is engaging and nails the personality of Naoto, while giving fans of Persona 4 a glimpse of a more comfortable character. Add in the contrast between the dark, grungy backdrop and Layla’s amazing, almost pearlescent skin and this set really is a treat in every way.
Naoto Shirogane is a playable character in Persona 4. Arriving in Inaba to help investigate the murders, this fifth generation of the famed Shirogane detectives enrolls as a first-year student at Yasogami High School.
