I was thinking of going as the warden from Superjail! if you've never heard of the show, it's about a giant jail that is really weird, with lots of violence, the warden has been described as a "sadistic Willy Wonka". only a few of my friends have ever heard of it, and the costume shouldn't be too hard to make, though it may involve fabric dying.

I cosplayed as Sai from Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and almost everyone thought I was supposed to be Near from Death Note :'[

I'm planning on doing an Irish myth character next year, Cu Chulainn, and I'm pretty sure only one other person on the forums is going to know who I am. Haha. I'm still planning on doing it regardless though.

WOOO BROOOOO

I'm planning on doing something from Celtic mythology for next KCon too (not sure what yet, though) so Rebecca won't be all alone in her awesome, and yeah, no one's going to know what we're doing. xD

Oh, and then there's the "superhero Disney princesses" thing that me and Sora were considering.

Other than that... well, I think most of my cosplays fit in a niche. There will always be at least one person who will scream in glee when they realize that I'm Rika from Digimon or Shmendrick the Magician.

Whatevs, though. I'd rather be nine people's favourite thing than one hundred people's ninth favourite thing.

Oh yeah, and as for my plans that I'm pretty sure nobody will **** get:

Some day, some how, I will do Anton from the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.



Like anyone will recognize me, but I don't care. That costume is... the definition of bitching.

So who cares if it's full of chainmail and leather and ****, it'll be amazing.

I cosplayed Kaede from Shuffle last K-con. About two people recognized me, this one girl who was standing in line with me and these two guys.

That show has some awesome episodes to it.  (My favorite character is that guy in the opening segments, Jacknife, who's always getting arrested by Jailbot).  I would love to get a pic with in this cosplay while I'm Lina Inverse!

All the stuff that I pick and plan to do is based off whatever I think is cool or neat looking. I do it cause I want to, regardless of whether or not I'll have a group for it or if people will even recognize it. As it turns out at the moment, a decent amount of the stuff I plan on doing is either lesser known or not cosplayed much. Just kinda the way it turned out lol.

I do it for funsies, any attention or recognition is a bonus.

I heard good things about Basara, but I never watched it or read it.

The beautiful thing about doing lesser known cosplay is that there's less of a "competitive" feeling that comes to being the best one out there. At least for me.

Jaqua and I are planning on going as Warbler's from Glee. Particularly Jeff and Nick, but no one knows who they are, and we may or may not keep a tally of how many people think we're failed Ouran cosplayers.

Otherwise, Hanschen and Ernst from Spring Awakening.

Hahahaha, dude, you're totally fine. I went as the Mistress of Ultraprison and people knew who I was. You'll totally be recognized.

Whoa, are you kidding? Last year, when I cosplayed Professor Layton, someone thought I was the warden. I don't think it's as obscure as you imagine.

On a related note, I just had the idea that I'd like to cosplay from my favorite book series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Would anyone recognize that? I'd probably stick to a design from the 2005 movie.

This would probably be the costume I'd choose. (Trillian is pretty fashionable in this movie.)


I'd probably fashion up a plush Marvin to carry around to complete the image. --> http://www.figures.com/databases/news/actionfigures/155/213.jpg
Possibly a towel for good measure, too.

Good idea? Bad idea?

I like a lot of shows/games that aren't very popular, and I'd like to cosplay from a lot of them. Like I would love to be Nemu from Da Capo, Shalua from FF7:DoC, the Dark Liege from Nora, or Houou Maniwa from Katanagatari, but I feel like nobody would know who I was cosplaying.
I'm sure it would be worth it, though.

The one cosplay I did that I was surprised didn't get recognized very often was my Hamtaro. I figured everyone would be all "ohmahgoodness, it's Hamtaro" but no one I didn't know even approached me :/

That happened with my Penelope. I put it on and I was headed for the meetup and before I even got out the door ten people called me Pikachu so I was all, "D< F*** this s***! I'm changing!" So I changed back into Luka cause I was sick of being called Pikachu and Molly wanted to go back to being Vocaloids.

^ This. I have a feeling I've seen a lot of characters I like, but they don't translate well in real life. If anyone cosplayed anyone from Kuragehime or Kimi no Todoke, I would be extremely happy, but I probably wouldn't know that they were in a cosplay.

Absolutely this. I dunno about Kuragehime. I would probably recognize Tsukimi, but it would have to be really exaggerated. I would maybe recognize one of the dresses they make...

Aww, thanks! I'll have to save that costume for next year. I think I'm going to recreate a Portal cosplay in celebration of the release of Portal 2 instead. I won't forget the idea, though.

(I hope that I get to go to con next year, actually. I'm not sure how it's going to work out.)

I would love to get to know your steampunk characters, but at con it's sort of tedious. Unless we're standing in line together, I never have time to ask people about that kind of stuff. It's a little depressing because it downplays creative original characters. It's sad.

Yeah, I've had people talk to me about my inspiration for my outfits and such. I just get annoyed when people look down at me for doing original outfits that technically aren't anime....

I didn't wear the cosplay, but my friend cosplayed Eve with me as Sven from Black Cat. And she wore Eve's first outfit and got mistaken for being Misa the whole time. It was sad. B/c Eve is sooooo much better than Misa >>

I'd like to some day go as Yoichi Taba from Geobreeders.



I'd probably go in his season 2 casual wear, which I'll post if & when I find it.

It's pretty sad, but as I scroll through this, I recognized a LOT of characters.

Someone said Sai from Neuro.

... :I I'm gonna be cosplaying him this year, along with a Yako and MAYBE a Neuro.

And I'm going as a Toriningen or Shitai from Yume Nikki. I doubt anyone's gonna recognize me much this year. :I

I'm going as a Nadie from El Cazador De La Bruja... Most people have never heard of the Anime (it's not bad I swear!) and won't recognize the character. But its such a cool costume!

I went as an Assassin from Assassin's Creed one year, like before it became a super popular game, and NO ONE knew who I was D: but it was still so much fun to walk around looking like a boss assassin, I didn't even care that the only people who knew where I was from weren't actually participating in the con XD

As long as a person's costume is cool looking, I like to take a picture of it, even if I have no idea where it's from! Quality over recognizable-ity?
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

Dooo ittttttt. I  know there's someone cosplaying as Yako going this year (MTNN cosplay thread), it'd be AWESOME if we had a Yako and Neuro pair walking around the con @___@

I've wanted to cosplay from Monster ever since I watched it the first time, but everyone in that show just wears normal clothes.  A Nameless Monster plush would help, but still.

Current Planned Cosplays: Stomp The Enemy, Chinchirorin Kaiji, Kyrie Ushiromiya, Lat Miku

Last year's Kumoricon, I cosplayed as Suigintou from Rozen Maiden. I worked my ass off getting everything for that costume. Thought it was like the best one I've ever done.
Once I got to the con, only 3 people recognized me. And 1 guy said "Oh! It's Saber from Fate Stay Night!" and I literally face palmed myself...

^She is amazing. She is my favorite Rozen Maiden character, so that's what motivated me to cosplay her. I felt so fail when I got to the con as her. Yet again, I saw very few Rozen Maiden cosplays there. But I thought it was a pretty known anime.
