Invader Zim? (Sure, it's not an anime/manga, but...)
« on: May 14, 2006, 10:09:41 pm »
Okay. Before anyone shouts "Invader Zim is not an anime so shouldn't be cosplayed at an anime con!", I have to say, there's been LOTR, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and many other non-anime/manga related cosplays at cons before. So deal with it.

ANYHOW. 83

Will anyone be cosplaying characters from the show Invader Zim this year? I know I've seen a few cosplayers of the characters on the internet, mostly Gir, but of other characters as well.

This is my first year at Kumoricon, and I might/most likely/planning/will be cosplaying Dib for one day...and was just wondering if anyone else was going to join in on the IZ cosplay fun. 8|

We've had Invader Zim cosplayers at Kumoricon before... several times actually and I don't think I've ever heard anyone say something bad to them.

I'd say go for it.

anime is actually defined as any kind of animation  in general, so invader zim would definetly work.... I LUV THAT SHOW *sigh* I could remember the invader zim mini marathon we had at a friend's house... those were some good times. Hope to see you there:D

Yeah, although I always tend to think of it as just Japanese animation. 83 Most people do, although it's just another word for "animation"...

Surely if someone does cosplay him (because I have seen others) it won't be exactly the same as the cartoon (knowing a head that size and a body that small is impossible), but I already have the trenchcoat and round glasses, so all that would be missing are the black boots and shirt (since I already have black pants and black hairspray).

The challenge will be styling the hair to make it stick back in a bolt...somehow.

personally i'm a huge fan of zim.
i had a crash course in zim fandom, kumoricon 2004, when i found that i had SEVEN entries in the fanfic contest, about invader zim!
so i created a special category and gave a zim award that year:)
the legacy thereof is the "non-anime fandoms" category in the fanfic contest that remains to this day :)

zim cosplayers, stop by the creation station at some point during the con. we have a subsection of fanfiction bedtime stories which is called fanfic theatre. that's where people cosplay their fics, instead of just reading them aloud--adding voice acting skills, costumes, props, sets, whatever, to enhance their performance. it would be awesome to have some of the invader zim fics cosplayed for that!
