PostSubject: I cosplay! ^~^   Sun May 23, 2010 8:18 am

I swear Im one of the only people in all of Jefferson County that really even cosplays -correctly- and professionally.... do any of you cosplay? More people around the area need to get into it, it costs alot of $ if done -properly- BUT it is worth it, you will be highly rewarded by people's attention and photographs at conventions and not passed by because of a really crappy cosplay. I do some prop work too... but I've only made 2 weapons.

I've cosplayed since 8th grade, and believe me when I say it doesnt get old. Im a work in progress though. At first I was kinda crappy and had low budgets. But I got practice and a higher budget and now I'd say Im at the intermediate level. It's so much fun guys. It would be awesome if next year we got a group together and cosplayed from the same series. I've been to 5 anime cons, but this year I had to take a break from cosplay due to depression and $ issues.

I used to go to Anime STL but I dropped it after it split into KawaKon/ASTL due to club organizers' drama. ACen is where it's at, it's the 4th largest in the USA. I've been there twice and I plan on going next year. I need more people to go that I know. You guys should consider it. I dont know the dates for 2011 yet, but they will be posted soon if not posted already. I have galleries of Anime STL 2007, 2008 and ACen 2009 somewhere online but Im too lazy to go find them to show you lol.

Ive made alot of friends at conventions, and even kept a few that still keep in contact. I dont know if anyone in here's been to one, but it's a rewarding amazing experience.

Here's some of my recent cosplays ;D

Suigintou - Rozen Maiden (2008-2009)
She is byfar my favorite anime character/cosplay... it's going to take alot to beat her right now.







Yuuki Cross - Vampire Knight (2009)



Rima Touya - Vampire Knight (2009)







Mello - Death Note (2008)





Mana - Moi dix Mois (2007)





Reno - Final Fantasy VII (2006)



KEYBLADE - Kingdom Hearts (2006)




Other cosplays not pictured:
Misty - Pokemon (2009)
Misa Amane - Death Note (2008)
Bubblehead Nurse - Silent Hill (2008)


As for future plans, I would like to cosplay
Shinku from Rozen Maiden
C.C. (ball gown version) from Code Geass
WhiteOwl from DeathSmiles
Rachel Alucard from BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
Lenne from Final Fantasy X-2
and many more to come!


So... if you have any questions about cosplay or anything, hit me up on my msn or PM me here.

I would definitely go with you if i could actually get an outfit together! I would personally like to go as Lelouche or maybe Itchigo, but I'm kinda tight on $ so i could never afford to make such an awesome costume like the ones you make.

Either of those would be fantastic
I'd like to be C.C. myself, or the little girl with the pink hair in Bleach
It takes practice but you could pull it off especially since Lelouch is alot easier

Always start easy with clothes that can be bought and slightly modified
My first cosplays were Reno, Misa, ect which are easy.
I say go with Light

While I'm quite the fanatic of many of series that cosplaying involves, I've...never actually been able to do any type of cosplaying myself...and I've never felt the urge to do so--though I can see why you'd like to so such a thing, it seems interesting and fun--and I'll agree with you immediately with the fact that you're likely the one one in this county that cosplays. It's a pity most are so close-minded to not accept such things.

Maybe if I can get the money together, I'll do it sometime, it'd be a great change of pace.

I was kinda skeptical about it too like "what would my friends think" (though at the time I had none, hah) or "my cosplays not going to be any good like everyone elses". But in truth, once I actually got to the hotel for the 1st time, it was like magic basically. Everyone at any con Ive been to has been -so- friendly and nice. There are really nice people there and you fit right in.

Ok, I've narrowed it down to 4 possible cosplays. First is Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass. It's just because he's one of my favorite characters and it wouldn't be that hard to do. Second would be Lelouche from Code Geass. Basically same reasons as Suzaku. Another good one, i thought, would be Edward Elric from FMA or possibly Captain Hitzuguya from Bleach.
