The attention to detail of the cosplayers Kaguya-sama
Each member of the group wears the classic Shuchiin school uniform: a black dress with a white collar and red bow for the girls and a jet-black suit for Miyuki. Aside from the costumes, there’s also the attention to detail that captures the look of the Shonen comedy. For example, Fujiwara is depicted in an anime-like pink wig with a small black bow on top. In addition, Shinomiya wears a large red bow on the nape of her neck, with the exact same hairstyle as in the anime. Finally, Shirogane dons a yellow wig and wears the iconic gold chain around his neck – an item passed down between each council president.
While most of the student council is represented in the picture, including the president (Shirogane), vice president (Shinomiya) and secretary (Fujiwara), two notable characters do not appear in cosplay. This includes Yu Ishigami, a major supporting character in the series who acts as the team’s treasurer, and Miko Iino, who joins the team as an auditor in Season 2.
