    Default Cosplaying

    How many of you do cosplay? And if you do, do you go to Anime Conventions? Do you buy your costume or make it yourself?

    I got into cosplaying a few years ago thanks to my friends. We've done several conventions already. We're from the Detroit, MI area so we've got several options. I have to say my very first one was Anime Detroit 2010 which was rather small and I dressed as Link and used my friends costume...lol. Now most of our group (the girls) will make their costume the two guys are lazy bums and buy theirs.

    Anime Detroit 2010 - Link
    ColassalCon 2011 - Leo from Yu-Gi-Oh
    ColassalCon 2012 - Formal Leafeon from Pokemon

    Here are some photos of me in my cosplays.

    Colassal Con 2012

    Glaceon - Jen
    Jolteon - Natalie
    Leafeon - Me
    Espeon - Lindsay

    Colassal Con 2012

    Jolteon - Natalie
    Umbreon - Megan
    Umbreon - Mikey a.k.a Pimpeon...lol.
    Espeon - Lindsay
    Leafeon - Me
    Glaceon - Jen

    Colassal Con 2011

    Luna - Natalie
    Leo - Me

    Yes Leo has boobs....LOL!

    I don't, but I really want to sometime. It would be so fun to make my own costume and go to a convention. I'd probably be someone from a Yu-Gi-Oh!, like Rally from 5Ds (I'm kinda short and I have curly hair).

    Keep on kicking butt, Yuzu!

    Don't feel bad I'm only 5 feet. I really want to cosplay Toph from Avatar. I may be doing Roxie the Virbank Gym Leader only because I'm really short on cash right now. The guys in our group usually buy their outfits us girls try to make as much of ours as possible. Lindsay is one who is good with sewing and wigs, Natalie is good with painting and I'm the one that paints and tries to make items for costumes.

    That's awesome. I'd probably go for something on the cheaper side. ...Weird, I could see the pictures before you changed them.

    I don't really look like anyone either. Most of my hair's long and curly, but I got one side of my head shaved, so maybe I could be Rally after a freak explosion, or after he was captured by cult members or something.

    Keep on kicking butt, Yuzu!

    Some people are really picky about their costumes. I try to make them look as close to the real thing as possible. I know my group is going to ColassalCon this year and that might be my only Con for the year unless I can save enough for Youmacon.

    Nice cosplays! :3


    I would love to cosplay. I have a Togekiss cosplay I wore to the 2012 Pokemon World Championships(too lazy to pull up a picture right now). Me and my mom made it lol.
    Sadly, there aren't any cosplay conventions I know of on Hawaii island. I wish I could go to one....
    Me and my friends made a promise to go to a cosplay convention together someday :p

    I cosplayed as Morty at a comic con in 2011. I might do Marlon for my next convention - I think I could pull him off better since my skin is a little dark.

    I've dressed up as a Pikachu before, not long ago actually, for my Eisteddfod. ;w; I've been working on a Meulin Leijon cosplay for awhile now. I've got the shirt (not the t-shirt over), shoes, skirt, and hair dye, so I'm just missing the make up, knee-socks, t-shirt over the shirt, troll horns and tail. Which, is basically all the complicated stuff. xD I don't need to buy a wig, luckily, because my hair pretty much looks like her's anyway, it's just the wrong colour.

    It's official, I'm gonna cosplay as Nightmare Gaz from Invader ZIM at next year's Comicon >:D !! I'm probably gonna need a purple wig, lots of hair product, a skull cap, black and white make up, clay, pink tights, grey opera gloves, a black marker, some white plastic, some wire, a short black dress, some modified hoof shoes, fake nails, rubber cement, different colored paint, and some juice boxes.
