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"
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
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 believe that should be "grammar".
They should have Cosplay for pets
I LOVE humans
Not so much anymore...
@123456789 - you definitely don't have enough to do.
Those pet costumes are great!
Or too much and I've given up!
Ah yes, the infamous jinx of pedantry.
I'd say "inevitable" rather than "infamous".
