Cosplay for a Cause Calendar [Gallery]

The earthquake, tsunami, and ensuing nuclear crisis in Japan earlier this year have stretched the Japanese Red Cross to its limits; while donations are coming in all the time, it’s still important to maintain support for the organization as Japan recovers from these events. To help bolster contributions to the JRC, Cosplay for a Cause is launching an exclusive calendar with 18 professional never-before-seen photographs of internationally-known cosplayers and original monthly chibis by acclaimed comics artists.

With the terrible events that happened in Japan on March 11th, 2011, and continuing repercussions, Cosplayers from all over the world have come together to support the country that has inspired them.

Cosplay for a Causes’ mission is to use our love of costuming to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist in Japan’s Disaster relief aid. We are currently offering a 2012 calendar which contains international cosplayers with many never before seen photos. 100% of all our proceeds will be going to the Japanese Red Cross society.

These are the teaser photos, which differ from the contents of the calendar. You can read more about the contents and artists and preorder your calendar ($17.99) on the Cosplay for a Cause website, or pick one up during Dragoncon, NyCC or AWA at the Cosplay for a Cause booth.
