Enako is one of Japan’s most popular cosplayers and has managed to turn her hobby for bringing anime characters to life into a lucrative job.
She previously revealed that during Comiket, Tokyo’s biggest anime and gaming convention, it’s common for her to make over 10 million Yen ($91,500 USD) over the 2 days the event runs for.

This money comes mostly from photograph sales, as well as the appearance fee paid to her by the event’s organizers.
By comparison, the average yearly salary in Japan is only around 3 million Yen, which Enako could make in just one afternoon.
Enako has become a massive star in the anime world.
Crowds of adoring fans are constantly gathered around her at any event she attends.

She also does a lot of work promoting movies, anime, and game releases.

Her incredible talent at putting together faithful and gorgeous costumes combined with her gorgeous visuals make her a force to be reckoned with.
