The Cosplay Thread
« on: June 09, 2011, 02:39:23 pm »
So, some of you may remember when I posted a few pictures of myself cosplaying at last year's FanExpo in Toronto in a suit of Power Armor from Fallout.



Now, I've been working on and off on my next costume for the upcomming FanExpo in August on and off for the last few months.  I'm just starting to get back into it, so I figure it's about time that we get a Cosplay Thread going, because I doubt I'm the only one interested in this sort of thing.

So, do any of you guys cosplay?  Do you want to cosplay?  What as?  At which conventions?  Have any tips or questions?  This is the place for them.

Incidentally, in case you were wondering, I'm going as a Quarian this year.

Enough people tell me I look like David Tennant that one day I might, nay, must dress as the Tenth Doctor at some sort of geek convention.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I'm not sure your body could withstand the immense amount of coke required to act like him also. Maybe you're better off sticking with Hamlet.

I have not cosplayed before but if i did i think I would want to dress up in some steampunk styled stuff. Note that I had some awesome Halloween costumes in my day. Maybe if i ever dress up again for Halloween I will do a steampunk outfit.

On a side note it would be rather awesome to make a Naucean suit much like they did the raptors in "Walking with Dinosaurs Live".

Some guys did something like that with raptor costumes last year at FanExpo.  It was really cool.

Does it count as cosplay if you actively try to live a normal life and hide your superpowers? :3
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

If and when i go I would probably shave my hair and go with young revolver ocelot, I look like him and the costumes easy to pull off though, I would have to learn to all kinds of cool tricks with toy revolvers though or the costume just wouldn't be complete.

Ha, I'm pleased.  I managed to track down a brief shot of myself in a cosplay montage video on Youtube.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_icWUXOAwk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_icWUXOAwk</a>

I show up briefly at 1:53.  I love going through all these videos.  So psyched for this year's FanExpo.
