Who's Cosplaying as who?
« Reply #50 on: May 07, 2004, 10:59:57 am »
There is always room for creativity within FF costumes. Like one could always make the Amano versions of some outfits. Plus there are a lot of different dress spheres in ffx-2 that people don't do. My friend and I were the only festival goer Yuna and Rikku at Sakura-con... Though the downside of that was when I went to stand with the FF people for a group photo I got a lot of *looks* because nobody knew what I was. *sigh* They seemed to be wondering why some girl in a horrible yukata was trying to join them. lol. At least they recognized Rikku though. Anyway...

I'm hoping to go to Kumori Con this year, So here's the planned costumes!

Tidus (Finishing off my bf's. I still have to make the shoulder pad, ect. Anyone who saw him at Sakura con knows how much work I have to do. ^_~)
Xelloss (Also another one of my bf's. I'm having to re-make his cape)

He's thinking of some other costumes, Like a nude-suit Dark Shnieder with fake muscles, but we'll see. (decency wise and time-wise)

As for me,

Peorth (Ah My Goddess) One of her casual outfits from the manga

Dizzy (GGX) Her black dress, possibly with the wings even though she doesn't really have them with the dress.  Also possibly her swimsuit for the fun of it (It's basically a school girl outfit)

*crosses fingers* Hopefully this will be the con a chubby girl can cosplay in peace!

I cosplayed as Faye Valentine once... not at Sakura Con though.  I didn't get the chance to cosplay at Sakura Con unfortunatly -.-;   What I cosplay to Kumori (which I will DO!)  depends whether my friends are coming or not.  

A great site for you cosplayers is http://cosplay.com ^.^

I posted earlier about sewing tips. thanks to anyone who responded. I'm going to try to go as   Merle Stryfe from trigun, Suld from Ah! My goddess, and Ai from Final Fantasy Unlimited. Hopefully this cosplay attempt truns out better than the one at Sakura con. I was one of the f Sakura's from Sakura Wars.

There were alot of Sakura there. Most of the ones I saw were really good. A friend has offered to make my cosplays. (Thank-you!) and I was wondering if with those of you who have cosplayed, have you had trouble finding materials and help to make them?

we're going to try to get someone to cosplay as our mascot... but I'm not sure it's a large priority... so just incase you see someone wandering around and no one knows where she's from... that's probably it.  :-P

...woah... I was just about to ask if I could cosplay as that girl holding the roses and umbrellas... she looks unremarkably like me, only about 3 inches longer hair.  I would so cosplay as her, she's got great fashion sense.

if you want to you're welcome to.  I'm not too sure about her fashion... there's a bit of a joke in her outfit, I'm not sure anyone besides the core staff would pick it up though... or anyone that lives in Eugene.

Quote from: "Sheltie"
You could always try miroku from inu yasha!

(I've got to came back here more often)
Actually, that sounds like a good idea.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I can just imagine my friends' reactions if they knew I was going to cosplay as him since our personalities (mine and Miroku's) are no where near the same.  ^_^  It'll take some time to grow the mini-ponytail.

And I didn't notice that many Sakura at the last Con.  Then again, I hung out with one of them so maybe that's why.  She was the one in the kimono and had the wand.

Umm, I'm not sure about you guys but I'm rather fond of my original heart, stomach, spine, skin, etc. so I probably will not grope people.  I was able to find an old Animerica magazine of mine (let's here it for pack-rats) so I now have an example to go by.  I'll try to work on it this summer.

I'm trying to think of a third character to go as, but I think I might be stuck going as Tatewaki Kuno.  :?  My friend is going as Female Ranma so... I hope she doesn't expect me to chase her around yelling "Pig-tailed goddess!"...

I'll be making my appearance as Taichi Yagami from Digimon Adventure. ^^; Such an underappreciated anime...

And, as this is my first con, it seems like a rather simple outfit, so I could pull it off rather well. I'll have to ask my friend's kid brother if I can borrow his Digivice... 8O

Let it be noted here that Security, or atleast me, will be paying special attention to all Miroku cosplayers.  They have a tendency to overstep their 'in character' bounds.

Having fun with friends is fine, but randomly groping girls/guys you don't know is frowned upon.

The hard part about cosplaying as someone like Keitaro is that it's hard to tell if they're cosplaying or just wearing regular clothes.  I've thought about that idea myself.  Before I went to the KumoriCon last year (when I was dressed as Seta) I had to pick up a camera at a grocery store (while in my costume) and didn't get any looks like "why is that guy dressed like that?"  I figure I could wear the costume around town for no reason if I wanted to.

you could go as keitaro in naru's leaf bikini.. lmfao jk lol but this is why that would be simple to cosplay, like if i went as mamimi i just have to get a blue sweater and find the skirt, then tweak alittl, i have that cat hat and the hair down, but i have really thick black square framed glasses so i dunno what im gonna do about that.

Heh Heh, I wear costumes all the time xD at the park... at school.  I dressed up as Faye Valentine for out school "Spirit Day" and my friend did Spike.  I got called to the principal's office (get's called alot for "outfits") but I had a trenchcoat, so as long as I kept that on it was ok! Woo hoo!

I'm going to be getting an Edgar Figaro costume together and my friend Hollie is going to be Inuyasha. We were thinking that we could make Mirouku and Tsongo (sp?) costumes for me and my girlfriend. We're trying to convince our really big friend Tony to dress as shippo for irony's sake.

My girlfriend wants to be in the FF6 cosplay as either a moogle or an imp. I have a few other costume ideas, but I need people to help make them a reality. I suck at sewing.

I'm dropping the ropponmatsu idea... I saw episode 26 of Excel Saga and... *shudders* I don't want anything to do with that anime!! I think I'll just go as two characters. I got a picture as someone cosplaying as Lacus Clyne so, I want to go as her, and now I have a little bit of an idea to go on. I just don't have a Haro

usually i'm integra hellsing from the hellsing series.
i've also been the one with glasses from haibane renmei and seraphim from mega tokyo. (though my white feather wings were a bit worn out by the end of last con.)

there are 3 costumes i have in mind, but i have no one presently to help me figure out how to get them made. 2 are from card captor sakura (series) and 1 is from utena (series).

of everything i read above, i'm most excited that someone is going as anthy. :) and that someone else enjoyed the movie version :)

Hmm... Maybe I should make Miroku my backup plan then....  Will you or your friend be wearing Love Hina costumes too?
Anybody know how to make a long-lasting, fake cigarette?  I'd like to use one as a prop and I don't want to use a real since I don't smoke (or worry about losing it and some kid finding it accidently).  So far my best idea is using a lollipop stick without the lollipop.

I saw your picture.  I don't know what you think about the series, but maybe you could pull off Hikaru in either Angelic Layer or MKR?  (technically, they're the same design.)
