Saya is cosplaying as Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Haruhi Suzumiya is the title character and focus of the Haruhi Suzumiya series created by Nagaru Tanigawa. She possesses unconscious god-like abilities to change, destroy, and reshape reality to her desires. In an interview, Tanigawa stated that the idea for the character came during a sleepless night at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
A beautiful, but eccentric and headstrong high school student, Haruhi is depicted as having a great disdain for anything seen as normal or mundane and interested in only supernatural beings or mysterious occurrences. Her displeasure with the school's "normal" after-school clubs leads her to gather up several students (Kyon, Yuki Nagato, Mikuru Asahina, and Itsuki Koizumi) and found her own: the SOS Brigade. Much of the activities of the club and its members, however, become increasingly involved with incidents caused by her abilities.
