I know Man-Faye over here (if he's different from the one over there [gawd the horror of having more than one!]) was arrested for indecent exposure and in the past was banned from some conventions. Recently he's been allowed back because he 'covered' himself up more. LOL

Wow a Man-Lulu that fooled everyone...I'm impressed. I'm sure there were probably some guys dressed as girls that I didn't even notice...which is good!

The guy must have looked grotesque, but damn, wouldn't I have loved to see the arrest unfold!

Well, at least there's no male cross dressers looking for a sex-change after a convention x_x

I'd have to agree.

like that crossplayer that Utsurokuri saw, the one who actually looked like a woman i am ok with. just as long, as they dont go pulling tricks...

but crossplayers which you can see is a man, like man-faye.... I HOPE THEY DIE!!!

you know it could be worst... on my last anime convention my classmate dressed-up as Yuna. the next day my friend comes to me and says "Hey West who was the cute girl you were with in the anime convention?" and i was like "0_0 Dude that 'cute girl' was a guy!!" we never spoke of the event again...

LOL indeed.

Yup. I'm seriously it wasn't until Man Lulu spoked that we believed his girlfriend. I'm seriously still amazed that he would dress up as Lulu for her. O O;

Which reminds me we ran into him later out of cosplay and he looked well out of cosplay. XD

That takes dedication. Or having a lot of balls (no pun intended LOL)

So for you guys out there, if your girlfriend asks you to crossplay in drag would you do it? Laughing

Pronouncing it 'Aerith' makes it sound like you're lisping. I prefer the way it's done in FFVII.

Both Aerith and Aeris names originated from the FFVII game in that Aerith was used in Japan and then to Aeris when brought to the US (which is why it probably sounds most familar). Most other games with cameos of her and in the Advent Children movie also use the name Aerith.

As for pronounciation, I pronounce it as Aeris. Trying to say Aerith get's a lot of people going, "you mean Aeris?"

I hope your hoodie goes well. I'm looking forward to some Nana pics! Very Happy

No, really, it was spelled Aerith.

Since the Japanese version pronounce it 'Aerisu' (which literally mean 'Aerith') so it sounds like 'Aeris'

I love the effects in the first pic you posted, especially with the red pain on the hands. Your wig in the second pic is perfect!

Utsurokuri- I haven't seen much of Trinity Blood (only 1 episode), but Elfien Lied has a lot of blood flying around and bodies being ripped apart. I'm not into gore much, but most of it is fast and quick so it wasn't too bad.

Celtic is a character from Vandread, Triela - a systems operator who's heavily into cosplay and wears a different costume almost every week, or something like that. Even to work.

You should check out Vandread sometime. It's an awesome series.

Well now I have my shorts all done. Now all that's left is the wig and horn gluing. ^_^

My best friend and I just made up an outfit for her while we were on the phone together. She's going as a guro loli. She's wearing a black dress with gaws and bandages on her arms and legs. She's tieing her hair into to ponytails with white ribbon, black makeup around her eyes, and to top it all off she's going to have fake blood. She's gonna look amazing!! ^_____^

Our troop is going to consist of:
Nana (Elfen Lied)
Aeris (Final Fantasy VII)
Guro loli
and two people who aren't cosplaying... -_-

My cousin is going with his school anime club and they're all cosplaying as SSBB characters. He's gonna cosplay as Ness.

Well they were 20% off! Plus they were books I couldn't find in the mall at home! ^_^

I had an amazing time! A Ryuk from Death Note kept staring at me and he follow me around... I was freaking out (masks remind me of clowns) *shiver* Then he gave me a hug. My sister said he liked me, but I don't think so... :huray:

Someone gave me a pic that they took at the con!! :fakesmikle:

Haha! I know! ^o^ Thinking back it was funny.

Wahaha!! My yaoi books are so good... After a hard day at the anime convention I would go back to the hotel make coffee, get a box of pocky, lay on the bed and read. ^_^ It's a great way to relax, but I giggle a lot. ^o^

Anime conventions weird me out. Don't get me wrong, the tables and tables of plasticky and colorful goods feed my rampant consumerism.

But I am repulsed by all of the weeaboo pride. There is just too much eye-squinting, peace-sign holding, pocky chomping, squealing 13-year-old girls running around. I just want to slap them and have a heart to heart chat about how no matter how much makeup, hair dye, eye squinting or overpriced Japanese goods you utilize, no one is ever going to think that you're cool or even Japanese.

Quoted for absolute truth. That crowd can be pretty damn rude to less diehard fans, too.

Super Special Awesome ultra sexy revival topic GO!

OMG you guys I'm having SUUUCH a bad crisis right now!! ;_;

I'm trying to find sites that have pre-made cosplay outfits for the ones I want but they're either too expensive or they just don't have them. ;_;

I would buy cloth to make it, or buy different pieces and put them together. but I just don't know how to go about doing it. ;_;

These are my ideas:

Triela
Tai- Digimon
Link- Twilight Princess version
Milly- Baten Kaitos Origins

Kalas- Baten Kaitos Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean

Kurama- Yu Yu Hakusho

Wanderer- Shadow of the Colossus


I REALLY want to cosplay as Wanderer, but I have no idea how to go about making it... If I have to I'll just re-use my Henrietta and Nana cosplays. ;_;

If anyone knows how to go about making some of these or knows where I can find a place to get them please post them. =D Run Triela! Run!

I have not cos-played since like Anime Expo in the early 1990's. (Well, technically I have, but Star Trek doesn't count. Smile )

I went as Samson and my friend went as Nadia. We ran into someone as Jean and someone as Grandis so it worked out great. Then the next year I went as Ryouga from Ranma 1/2.

I attend the San Diego Comic Con each year and you see some insanely good - and insanely bad - outfits there from all over the place - anime, television, movies, video games, comics, etc. Last year with Avatar: The Last Airbender ending just before the con, you had enough people to actually populate a Water Tribe or an Earth Nation city or a Fire Nation village. Smile


Anyway, to your question. You might want to look into seamstresses in your area. I don't know what kind of budget (if any) and lead-time you have, but sometimes there are people who do this for fun.

Also, sometimes you can get away with following the "spirit" of the outfit even if it is not a perfect reproduction. So perhaps simplify the pattern on Wanderer's cloak a bit. That way, people still recognize it (and your character).

Triela would be cool from a GSG angle. Kurama looks pretty straight-forward. The two video game characters look like pretty exotic and complicated outfits.

And your earlier costumes - cheers

Thanks for the suggestions! ^_^ I think asking someone to do it for me would be too expensive though, seeing as how much detail has to go into it...

I just talked to my mom about my cosplay and she said that Wanderer sounded easy enough after I finish the cloak thing. She said I should paint the design on, but I'm still not sure...

I think one day I'm gonna go to a fabric store to buy some fabric I need. I started saving for my cosplay, so I have a meager 30$. ;_;

The thing is I'm going to England, so that's why I'm pressed from money, and my mom still doesn't have a job. Last year and the year before, my mom helped me buy almost all of my cosplay, but this year I want to buy it all and sew it all myself...

Maybe some kind of white fabric tape? Or something you can iron on? That way you could lay out the design on the tunic.

Looking at this pic:

It looks like green shorts with some lighter green banding around the legs. Maybe you could use ironing tape (it's two-sided, heat-activated) to attach the bands to the shorts.

The blue headband is easy. The sandals kind of look complicated, but maybe strips of blue cloth wrapped around your legs with a blue "front" that could attach via velcro at the top, middle and bottom? And maybe a large yellow sweater? So you can add brown shoulder pads and the brown belt?

Thanks again!! ^__^ I don't know I'm thinking about getting some cheap cloth, like sheet or something, and cut out the pieces individually for the cloak. I know it'll be time consuming, but it'll look nice.

The shirt underneith the cloak shouldn't be that bad either... I hope...

The shorts don't look like they need much material to make, and sadly I don't have the shorts this time, like with my Nana cosplay... Maybe if I ask around my friends might have some cloth they don't want any more. XD

Yeah the headband is easy. I can just get a piece of cloth and put a few stitches into it. The sandals do look complicated, but then again my Nana sneakers weren't exact either. I can just buy some cheap sandals and wrap thinly cut cloth around my legs and I'll use the same cloth for around my wrists. The "bandages" around my lower arms and legs are no problem. I have those already.

Indeed. Actually, considering how complex the pattern on the top half of the tunic is, it might be easier to start with a large swath of white cloth and use a knife to cut out the "empty" spaces rather then cut so many individual strips.

The shorts don't look like they need much material to make, and sadly I don't have the shorts this time, like with my Nana cosplay... Maybe if I ask around my friends might have some cloth they don't want any more. XD

Looking at it again, are they shorts or a skirt? For the lighter green part, probably just take a wide swath of material and then cut the "notches" on the top. The lower row of notches are so small I don't think they would be missed if you didn't put them in and it would save time. If it is a skirt, you could probably just pin it on and that way you could re-use the skirt when done.
