    Are there any Cosplayers here?

    I'm a cosplayer and cosmaker, and I want to know if there is more writers crazy like me :)

    Grammar: Are there any Cosplayers here?

    I'm not one but I encountered them initially at a conference venue here I just happened to come across. I watch Heroes of Cosplay because I find it mildly interesting. I wrote a brief scene in my novel where the protagonist sees Cosplayers for the first time.

    Thanxs for the correction, @GingerCoffee :) I need to go back to my English lessons.

    I haven't watched Heroes of Cosplay yet, but I saw some photos of the show. Compared to them, mine are "cos-poor" :p

    The scene in your novel looks interesting (is it published?)

    I'd love to be a cosplayer if I had the time, money, and skill to have a perfect imitation of a character.
    And yes, it has to be PERFECT!
    Wouldn't dare to be caught in anything less.

    Not yet. I hope to finish by November (my goal because it's my 3 yr anniversary and I'm getting close). After that, publishing will take an unknown quantity of time.

    I love cosplay photos on deviantArt, so often it's just remarkably good photography, and the styling, when done well, is perfection. I don't cosplay myself, but if it was around when I was in my teens and early 20s, I definitely would've done :)

    I don't understand Cosplaying. I'm not sure why, but it just as a concept leaves me confused. I do understand Steampunk, though, and I'm told that's sort of similar.

    I was going to cosplay Bolin when Comic Con was in town:

    But then the realization that Tenzin is probably more age appropriate for me kinda settled in... :(

    I want to be perfect too, but all my cosplays are made not to be perfect, but to learn new techniques, and how to use cheap materials. I live in a country where the most part of materials are hard to find (like good resins, plastic sheets, fabric), so I need to be creative to make a poor costume looks great.

    Yes, in dA there are amazing works. Very amazing.

    I see cosplaying like a theatre play: you choose the char, put its clothes and play as it. I know some cosplayers that are theatre actors.

    Tenzin is very nice, too :D


    In the event last weekend I saw a very nice woman cosplaying a char from Star Trek (those aliens that have blue skin, white hair and antennas). I asked her age: 70 years old.

    I'm searching my old pictures, but for now my better cosplay piece (I made it with cardboard and plastic glue / epoxi putty), the Loki's Scepter from Avengers:

    My cos includes: generic Jedis, Loki Kitty, Narcissa Malfoy and Dark Elf (this one under construction).

    I'd say "inevitable" rather than "infamous".

    (double-checking to make sure I haven't misspelled something) :unsure:
