ok, right, why does this topic not exist yet?

So, for anyone who doesn't know what cosplay is:
It's when you dress up as a character from a manga or anime (most typically), but it can also be a character from a tv show, a movie, a book, a webcomic, anything.
It's a ton of fun, I have to say X3

so, personally, so far I've only cosplayed as Kisame-san.
However, for conbust, I'm going to Kisame-san, Kikyo (yes, the evil b*tch. I'm going as her with an arrow sticking out of her chest and drawings all over her face X3), and Winry from fullmetal alchemist (X3)

Cosplay can be extrememly detailed or not. You can dress up with a specific outfit or an outfit you design yourself (which is very impressive if you do it right).

A lot of times you have to make an outfit or a weapon or such yourself (so for the Kikyo cosplay I have to make her pants, for the Kisame-san cosplay I had to make Samehada, with cf_chans help of course X3, etc.), sometimes you have to figure out how to make something (for Kikyo's shirt I took my old gi shirt and cut off the pants legs of it and sewed it to the sleeves X3), but sometimes, if your lucky, you can just use clothes you already own (for most of my Winry cosplay I can just use clothes I own :3)

so yeah, what have you guys cosplayed as, who are you going to cosplay as, and how are you going to do it? X3

yeah, but you're still going to have to style the wig (just don't use as much hair gel as you did for the Sasori wig cause that wig is seriously TERRIFYING Shocked )

I won't need much gel for Riza's wig. Just for her bangs so they swoop to the side.

The wig is less terrifying now that its distracted by its girlfriend.

I would recommend either buying some blue spiking gel (it exists, I'm pretty I have some purple somewhere) or just buy a blue wig and spike it. Spiking hair is not that difficult.

Not in that sense, more of....their hair going out.... (I guess he has a thing blondes)

HEY THERE. JUST POPPING IN TO SAY THAT DANNA IS A PLAYER. AND A SUCKER FOR BLONDES, APPARENTLY.

So. I've only cosplayed as TWO PEOPLE. And guess who those two people are? INO AND DEIDARA. WHUT.

I want to cosplay as like, a million people. I don't even know if I'm gonna go to ConBust, though. So. Yeah. But really, Kanda. And Saix. And Zexion? And AXEL? AGH.

...But mainly Kanda. The only thing that's keeping me from that is the "HOW TO GET THE UNIFORM" topic, and HIS BANGS. I DO NOT WANT TO CHOP UP MY POOR BANGS AGAIN. MY CHILDHOOD... I DO NOT WANT TO RE-LIVE IT. NOSIREE.

I have a terminal fear of wigs. You guys are so cool. I could never wear one.

You actually did do a pretty good at the Ino cosplay, didn't you just modify clothes you already had? It was awsome X3

You. Are. Going. To. Conbust. Even if we have to drag you all the way there. You are going to conbust. D:<

and you should definetly do Kanda (heehee X3) for one of the days, Dei for another, and I dunno what for the third day (for the third day most of us are doing FMA characters....who do you wanna be from FMA? X3 and don't say Winry cuase I'm already being her...sweatdrop)?

Geez Fai_re, just look online and such! It isn't that hard! Razz I'll even help if you want!

what so scary about wigs? I mean at least my problems with the contacts for the Kisame-san costume (geez, I still can't believe I didn't manage to do that) made sense Razz

Awww Thanks! I don't even remember what it looked like, lol! I was such a n00b back then... And no, I actually bought clothes. Then I mutilated those. :D

...Wellll... I dunno if I should go all three days...

HAHA. BUT I'M SO LAZY. And Kanda... NO. YHAKDFS! I don't wanna hack up my bangs! And I'd have to! And I haven't even really READ FMA. I've read just enough to know the story and some/most of the characters. Bwargh.

NYARHHH! BUT I'M TOO LAAAAAAAZY!!!

Wig... Wig... MY HAIR IS TOO LONG TO FIT UNDERNEATH IT? YES? And I'm not skilled like all those awesome cosplay people out there like FDP and the Tux Team. I could NEVAR pull of a wig. AND YEAH WELL WIGS ARE (not) AS SCARY AS CONTACTS! *POUT*

WOO! ...I still look back and feel embarassed about it, though. But WHATEVER! AT LEAST THERE AREN'T ANY PICTURES!! (...That I know of...)

But-

I AM TOO LAZY FOR ANIME I CAN ONLY MANAGE MANGA. And I still think manga is better. Especially if there's an anime for it, too, and the manga is the original. Reading the true story is always better, since it's the direct version made my the REAL creator! If that makes any sense...

...Woah. So does this mean I'm cosplaying Kanda?

Uh. I haven't... D: BUT REALLY. I THINK IT WOULD BE A CATASTROPHY!!

haha... Contacts. SCARY.

who knows, maybe there was some creepy construction guy that took pictures of you

you are going. All three days. And you have NO CHOICE!!!!

it does, but for a few things I still prefer the anime (meaning Inuyasha and FMA).

yes, totally X3

You'll have to try a wig then and figure out that it really isn't that bad! Razz

*shudder*

...You really want me to go that bad~?

Mhm. Well, you're more used to them and you already really like them. I understand~

I FEEL KINDA EXCITED. I ALSO FEEL KINDA LIKE I REALLY WANT TO, NAO. :D

Myeh. Well, if I DO cosplay Kanda, I'm just gonna use mah own hair, and dye it BLACK! That's easier than buying a wig and stuff.

*SHUDDER* I LOVE MY GLASSES...

Ok, well, I guess I can go for at least one day...

Yuppers. See, I know these things, fufu.

BECAUSE OF HIS BANGS? But lol, I just realized that recently, his bangs aren't like, "HACKHACK" and that they're more... natural-looking. Which is cool. Since I can go and get my bangs cut a bit shorter, and I won't need to just HACK em off. (ew)

IMMA GO TELL ZAABOOSHK...

Wow, really~? Why!?

YOU HAVE TO GO ALL THREE DAYS D: WHAT WILL I DO IF I DON'T HAVE MY TWIN!?

Okay you could use a wig Fai_re. You may have long hair, but I probably would have a harder time then you with wigs. Why? Because your hair is not pure FLUFF. If you clip up your hair you could fit it in a wig if you don't want to get it cut.

I prefer my glasses honestly. I think that glasses make a nice frame around people's eye's, because a lot of people who wear glasses look really squinty to me when they take them off and not just because they can't see.

...learn how to wear it!? Here I'll give you the basic fundametals of wearing of wig:
step one: (optional) Clip up your hair in a bun as flat as you can get it.
step two: put wig over head
step three: adjust as needed

THEY'RE LIKE FRAMES AROUND THE PRETTY PICTURE THAT IS YOUR EYES~
