Anyone like Cosplay?



  • Why there is seldom cosplay discussion on cosplay Center? I am a coser, and I have cosplayed many characters as Asuna from Sword Art Online, Yuna from Final Fantasy, Gaara from Naruto, http://worldcosplay.net/member/139936 here has my part cosplay photos. I want to make more friends who like cosplay as me!



  • Your cosplays look awesome! You can also try cosplay.com, it's a more active site hahaha. This year I was Bakura from Yugioh.



  • Man, I'd LOVE to get this forum to be a place for some good cosplay discussion, but I haven't personally worked on an anime cosplay in a long time.

    I'm working on some Welcome to Night Vale cosplays for A-kon and AnimeFest, though.



  • My family thinks that I've lost my mind or that I'm having a midlife crisis, but I recently decided to go all out and experience anime conventions in cosplay. OMG I'm so happy that I did! I had a lot of fun at Zenkaikon and AnimeNEXT, and I'm really looking forward to Otakon! I have made three costumes including one for my daughter, and I see not reason to stop…..ever!



  • It does look like it would be lots of fun! Perhaps I'd be willing to give it a go if I had something to participate in that's nearby, of course I'd have to learn more about it as well; I wouldn't want to embarrass myself too much. lol

    But, oddly enough I have recently been thinking about how neat it would be try it and then I found these posts.

  • I enjoy cosplay only for fun I have no aspirations of competitively cosplaying, my next costume which I won't be doing until 2016 due to plans falling through is Zoro from One Piece, Pre-Timeskip.



  • I've never really done any cosplay, outside of stage productions and theater work. I've always been interested in Renaissance Faire costuming, but I might have to try some anime sometime. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get started?



  • I thought about cosplaying as my favorite anime heroes (or villains) from time to time, but I'll die of embarrassment if I went for it. But don't worry, I don't think cosplaying in general is embarrassing (quite the opposite actually).



  • The best way to start, IMHO is either by purchasing a costume, or by picking someone where you can mostly purchase the costume pieces (in other words, it's mostly normal clothing with some minor alterations. If you already know how to sew, you can also include characters that have clothing that matches to ready-made patterns as well. Some of my early cosplays were Winry and, once I learned to sew a bit better, Tsunade, both of whom have pretty simple costumes. I've stuck mostly to patterns for years, though you eventually start doing some pretty extensive alterations. I've never been interested in doing it competitively, though.

    And I think you would be surprised– the reception is usually so very, VERY positive from the cosplay community. Sometimes, you don't have time to be embarrassed, because you're too busy posing for pictures. :)



  • I enjoyed the times when I tried cosplaying at anime or fantasy conventions.

    I agree with CJ that most of the time you are either posting for pictures or talking to other convention attendees. But the best times to cosplay is when you participate in a group with other friends.



  • @Soul_Chaos:

    ABSOLUTELY. All the most fun I've had cosplaying was in groups, pretty much, except for back when I was very first getting into it.





  • Hmm, are you talking about people wearing outfits like the anime characters? If that is cosplay then I have seen some people do that before. I think it looks interesting.



  • I love to cosplay! I've cosplayed since 2008. I haven't sewed any of my costumes though… But I plan to start sometime this year!! I'm going to start out simple though ahaha sweatdrop In case you want to follow me, I have my cosplay pages here: http://kiyo-cosplays.tumblr.com or WorldCosplay Page



  • I'm starting to cosplay, friends got me to cosplay two shows for expo this year

    Keep a look out for a short sphinx (from terror in resonance) during Anime expo!

    This is sort of the route I went with. I had a piece of a costume (by chance) then realized I could easily get the rest of it made or bought. I'm not outgoing enough to cosplay, just wear as Halloween costumes; so one year I was Luffy and the next I was Ace. Both started out because I had the hats lol. If I end up with Sabo's hat maybe I'll be the third brother at some point haha.

    I some how ended up with Edward Elric's pocketwatch, I have white gloves, black boots, black tank top, can easily get black pants, so now I'm trying to make his red coat/cloak and black coat, and belt then voila: I'll be Edward Elric for Halloween this year.



  • i really love cosplaying and counting down the days until my local convention. i really hope one day i will get good enough to make my own but for now i am happy with the ones i have done.



  • I know this may seem weird but I have this app called cute and great wig prices on the app only if I had money out of my bank account

    I though I would never do it b/c me being a jock in high school so never did it in high school but now that I out of high school I starting to try it out myself… I just spend ALOT of money on a REAL Goku Costume and REAL Goku Boots to go with it and hair spary and hair jaly... I be using at costume party and costume contacts for this October...



  • I do a sort of cosplay but in video graphic games. I like recreate characters as best as i can in video graphic games such as dark souls. This game and its mechanics works out well for making some Fairy Tail characters.
