Who cosplay?
« on: March 20, 2013, 09:33:40 PM »
Hey there. I just did my first attempt at cosplaying at a local convention, and I found it was actually pretty fun. Meeting new people in different costumes.

So the question I ask you, if you could cosplay as something...who or what would you be?

What was your cosplay?

I might also have to answer who I've been so far since I picked this up.  I've been Roronoa Zoro from One Piece, Kohta Hirano from High School of the Dead, and Sky High from Tiger & Bunny.  I want to be Commander Shepard most of all right now.

I cosplay. Generally it's OC characters, but sometimes I'll cosplay canon characters (It's really rare though)... Usually my Canon cosplays are Female Martial Arts Turk(FFVII: Before Crisis) and Yuugao Uzuki (Naruto)

I never go to a convention without my Kaylee (Firefly) costume.  Its so freaking comfortable not to mention adorable*nods sagely*.  Cosplay is a great icebreaker I've made some pretty awesome friends through it.  Makes me wish I were more handy (or at all really) with a sewing machine.  It is absolutely amazing what people can recreate.

My 'dream' cosplay would have to be the red leather Mord-Sith costumes from Legend of the Seeker.  So freaking badass, detailed, and sexy without showing skin.

Me and the wife are doing Umbrella Corps army cosplays at Sakuracon next week.  I'll have her upload pics to the wiki when we get them.  I also have links on Fetlife and Facebook.  If you do want to see them just PM me and I'll be more than happy to add you on either site.

Mmm I'll see what I can manage, either it'll be the red gown you see in my avatar (most likely), or... my Dr.Who OC... depends on who I'm around... but I'll likely wear the red dress... now if I could only get my hair to like me enough to be poofy a bit... XD

Comfort isn't the object with me, more like... who will I be hanging out with the most...during my short amount of 'me time' at con XD I'm working both nights of con... from 8pm to 8am XD As a Shift Coordinator for all the AV gear...

But yeah, either way... that red dress is one of my favorites, but I have several Dr.Who cosplayers who are like "NUUUU you HAVE to do this! Join us! JOIN US!" and I'm going... *shoulder sag* fine...

LOL, The Archivist is a character I want to do... but the problem lies in the fact that last year... when I showed up as her... and spoke to a few people... I was completely ignored at the photoshoot, even by the couple of people who knew me. No one went "Hey, wanna join us for some pictures"... I ended up getting shoved to the side, and ignored. So I figured "She doesn't stand out enough." But now I have a group of cosplayers, who want me to join THEM. Sarah Jane, 10th Doctor, 11th Doctor, and two Jack Harkness...

I'm sorry people where rude like that, but it is good that this year you have people that want to do photos with you.

MMHMM, It also depends on the weather, what people wear. You guys will be lucky, there is a huge RE cosplay group at Sakuracon :D

Not yet... but soon, hopefully. I've been trawling the Internet looking for decent designs for Rescue from the Iron Man series... and come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to somehow piece my own together. Getting increasingly nervous about this.

Mr. Oniya is currently threatening to work up a Dalek cosplay to balance out the abundance of 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors that we saw this weekend.
