Darkspace Squall should be from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Asuna?

Darkspace Jakob is from attack on Titan

Darkspace Kisa...no idea. Witchblade ?

Darkspace Kasami: That one is easy, kill la kill.

Darkspace Oneshot..no idea. Burst Angel?

Darkspace Bang Bang: No idea. Reminds me of some Touhou artworks, but nothing special

Anybody can fill the rest?

Darkspace Kisa looks like Felicia from Dark Stalkers.

Darkspace Oneshot is Seras Victoria from Hellsing.

I think Darkspace Bang Bang is supposed to be the witch from Touhou.

The darkspace Rhouss Fixers are Mario and Luigi.

Darkspace Bang Bang is the sorceress from Dragon's Crown, no mistake.

Darkspace Marikan-To is Bayonetta

Darkspace Candy is Link

For the original 6, you've also got Solid Snake, Faye Valentine, Morgan (Darkstalkers), Yoko (Gurren Lagann), Chun Li and a Sailor Scout (I'm not clear which one, though I assume Mars because of connection to fire...)

For DS Fiametta I figured Pluto due to the staff, but yeah the skill set is more Mars.

To further confuse things, the official paint job/artwork has purple hair. It's lighter than the purple seen in Mars' hair, but it's not Pluto's green...

Costume for DS Fiametta is a much closer match to Pluto. There was much discussion with my daughters before settling on that. :)

Do we have a guess on DS Delphyne? I'm assuming another Kill la Kill, due to the flavor text.

DS Delphyne is Mako from Kill la Kill, in her 2-star uniform.

As far I can tell, the Darkspace Characters' hair retain their natural color and style.

Kenobo is from Death Note, Mecha Musume Candy isn't cosplaying anyone in particular, she's just representing mecha musume as a concept.

For those (like me) that hadn't encountered the term "mecha musume" before, it means a personified machine, as a cute girl.

Does anyone know who the Novitiates are cosplaying? I've seen reasonable guesses at Sailor Moon characters, or the girls from Claymore.

My assumption on the DS Novitiates are the sailor scouts. The costumes seem to match them much closer to my eye, and the theme makes sense given that Novitiates are originally Doctrine, like Fiametta, whose Darkspace version is definitely a sailor scout (I believe ability wise people felt she was a good fit for Sailor Mars, but it was felt that the costume matched Sailor Pluto better due to the staff)

To clarify, is that like in Kantai Collection, Uputto and to an extent Strike Witches?

The literal translation for "musume" is "daughter". The concept of mecha musume isn't really a concrete thing. It's been around a long time really. The best definition I can think of is really anything that combines light to moderate moe with mecha themes. So it really covers a pretty wide range of stuff.

Yes for Kansai Collection and Strike Witches, no for Upotto.

Seriously just google image search mecha masume.

Let me show you how it began. The Mobile Suit Girls back in '82. As the inspiration for the very concept of mecha musume, they're probably the ones to go to for an idea of the concept. Other examples include the aforementioned Kantai Collection (where everyone is a WWII-era war ship and also a moe anime girl) and Kotobukiya's Frame Arms Girl model kit series. Folks interested in real-life military hardware can find plenty of mecha musume versions of almost every major military vehicle if they hit Google hard enough.

Neat.

Granted I could of googled but then I'd miss out on little history lessons like this.
