I just have to make a space to say how much I adored Little Star's Paine costume. The detail and craftmanship on it were just amazing.

Other favs were Tsume and Darcia. The Darcia costume was just spot on, Yui!

And the cute mirror image Chiis! I swear I drooled over them the entire day!

What did other people think?

Little Star

Hi Ashley! ::Waves:: ^.^

Thankies for the compliment! ::blushies:: ^.^'
It was such an honor meeting you in person!

My favs were: Your Seras, The whole Bloodlust group, the 2 Chiis, the Malice Mizer group, & the 8 ft. tall No face! He was so cool! Acting in character, he wouldn't even talk, just made "noface like" noises! :D

I'm sure there's more, but I just can't think right now......(Post ACen brain freeze!) ^.^;

Ashe

Ah, that noface rocked! When ParnsAngel and I walked by it was playing some strange version of tag with this adorable little kid, it was too cute!

I got to say "HOLY $HIT" on the nabeshins in the con. There's one too many! How many were there?

Nadeshiko
05-20-2003, 01:40 AM
Oh dearie....so many....

There was this really good Seras Victoria...the one that showed up at the cosplay.com table on Fri nite.

Yuna and Company's Final Fantasy costumes. ^_^v

I liked the Chibi Vash....uber cute!

All the Chiisyness! ^_^v

Snake in a Box

The X group! Chibi Yuzuriha and Chibi Inuki!

The Vampire Hunter D group

The Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar group

Hm...I'm sure there's more that I adore, but my mind is still numb. ^_^; Chii!

I loved that No Face!! Even though it totally creeped me out...and that little kid was just the cutest!!!!!
I was in front of a No Face when we were leavin the masq, and when I turned around to look for the rest of our group and saw him I nearly screamed *lol*

I loved the Darcia costume, and the Clover one in the masq, and the Chiis, and especially Crimson Cat!! =^_^=

I have to say I give props to the nabeshin I saw from my hotel room window who looked like he was stealing a taxi cab at like 3 am Sat night...that was the most hilarious thing I have ever seen...too bad I couldnt find a camera in time to take the picture...lol that would have rocked..oh well back to studying for finals :drink:

I'll tell the Rydia you said that... :\

Seriously though, what an awesome con that was. (We did the Rydia). I hope the cosplay keeps getting better and better.

My favorite had to be the little kid Link, but I also really loved the D Group and the Paine. God, there were a ton of costumes I loved, I'll have to wait for Kyle to get the pictures up so I can even remember them. :\

Third edit!!! As I go over everyone's posts, I love all these cosplays and more! Am I going insane?!

ZiggyB
05-20-2003, 03:15 AM
Ugh, there are so many great costumes that I saw at ACen. Let me see. Of course the Chiis were really great. Their skit was very funny too. :D

I'd also like to second Ashley's compliments on Little Star's fantastic Paine costume! She and her entire FFX-2 group were awesome! :) Sorry for being such a pain in the behind for asking for so many pictures of you ladies. :>

The Xianghua from Soul Calibur was really cool too. She had a beautiful design on her back as well, which I don't think anyone paid any attention too. :(

The three people walking around with Dreamcasts on their back doing Typing of the Dead cracked me up whenever I saw them. X-D

The FFIX group with a Steiner! :) They were really nice and I even got a picture with them, yah, Squall isn't FFIX but they didn't seem to mind. :)

I also really liked Lilli's Mana inspired panda look. I think that's what you call it. It was so cute! Especially when she was nibbling on some of the hotel plants. :>

It was also really cool to see an Ohgami (battle suit version) from Sakura Taisen in the dealer room. I was very happy to see a battle suit Ohgami at ACen, since I was lame and didn't finish mine in time.

Ashley's Caroline and the entire Vampire Hunter D group was also fantastic. I gotta wonder how long they had to stay there and pose for pictures though. :)

I'd say something about the DOA group, but I shouldn't since I'm sorta biased. ;-)

Ugh, I can go on and on... I'll remember more when I finish sorting through my pictures. :)

Little Star
05-20-2003, 03:32 AM
Not a pain at all ZiggyB!
In fact I'd love to see some of your pics if you don't mind? ^_^' ha ha.......pain.....get it "Paine".....bad pun, not funny.......e_e

TheLoneWolf
05-20-2003, 06:23 AM
Everyone's costumes rocked.Period.
If I was going about favourites,though,I'd have to say Little Star's Paine,Nerve-Chan's Kula,Erika's Angel,Yui's Darcia,Lilli's Mana-inspired,BitterBeing's Snake,Anya's Peorth,Ashley's Caroline and.......someone's Megatokyo Largo made my list. ^^

Ayaka
05-20-2003, 07:28 AM
Ah definitely everything that's been mentioned was great! Everytime I saw Little Star's Paine and the other two members of her group I had to do a double take at how much they looked like their characters.

I was also really happy to see two Eversummer Eve cosplayers, both of whom did a lovely job. There was a great Vash unfortunately sans wig whose costume and attitude really impressed me. I saw my first DNAngel anime version cosplayer! And the folks Saturday night with the light up costumes (one had a huge scythe) looked seriously cool, though I don't know who they were. Really cool Ryudo and Millennia too, though I admit to preferring the cosplay.com people who've done them. Ahh, I know I'm forgetting some! Ah yes, Lilli's friend's red dress with the panda!

Rosiel
05-20-2003, 07:49 AM
My personal favorites were Camus and Miklotov. Not only did they look great and have the same name (makes it easy on me!) they were really nice and Miklotov looked so much like Miklotov it was eerie. (I feel the urge to make a Yuber-like comment about how lovely their carcasses looked sprawled on the ground, but I will refrain and wait for the picture of the Suikoden brawl Al took instead... ;) )

But I am biased, horribly biaised. ^__^

I really liked the Jin-Roh armored guy and there were these two people with these big lighted plexiglass blades, no idea what the costumes were, but they were damn cool and you could tell they worked hard on them. And that one girl who had the wings that openned and closed, that kind of stuff takes alot of patience, but there were so many, I cant even remember ^^;

Jun_Kazama
05-20-2003, 10:02 AM
Little Star: that was you as Paine? Awresome awesome costume! I'd probably say that was my fave costume all weekend. Probably the best FF cosplay I've ever seen. How'd you do the hair?
:japan:

Anyways, I also really liked that super tall No-face, the Malice mizer group, the Hello Kitty and Ein (my freind Justin and I got a pic of them w/ their heads switched, lol). Sailor Bubba (of course!), Solid snake (w/ box), Maxi from SC, the Blade of the Immortal group, Link, and there were more, I just can't think of any right now off of the top of my head. ^_^"

ZiggyB
05-20-2003, 01:01 PM
Little Star: hahaha, that was funny! :D
Here are the pictures I took of you and your group. :)

http://images.cosplay.com/showgallery.php?cat=3915&ppuser=418&papass=&thumb=1

kylash: The two people with plexiglass blades were from Phantasy Star Online (PSO).

Ashley: haha, I just saw the picture of you sniping from one of the hotel levels! That was very cool! :> I hope hotel security didn't freak out. ;-)

Little Star
05-20-2003, 01:10 PM
Jun_Kazama: Yup that was me! ^.^'

The hair was a wig. LOTS of elmers glue, frozen stiff hair spray, bed head by tigi, & probably a few more substances I can't think of right now.......lol Any whos, thankies everyone for the compliments! ::blushies:: ^_^'

OH Yeah! & I also ADORED the Clover girl! Her wings are SO awesome!
<---Will probably remember more favs soon.......

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 01:52 PM
i'd have to agree that Little Star's Paine was absolutely mind blowing, not to meantion the fact that your drop dead goreous Star ;) i also thought that the 6'4'' black guy dressed as Sakura from SF was hilarious, the Malice Mizer girls were adorable.. especialy Kat... she sat on my lap :D ... The Snake was good, but he was trying to steal Pocky the entire time even tho he had a gigantic supply himself, oh and Ashley's Seras (Celes or whatever it is)... i wanted to ask for a picture, but i was WAY too shy, you look incredible ! well thats all i can remember right now...

Little Star
05-20-2003, 02:01 PM
DarkMynd: Thankie so much! ^_^'

::Blushies madly::

Where you dressed as anyone?

TheLoneWolf
05-20-2003, 03:39 PM
Little Star.I shall compose a little song for you Wesley Willis style:
*ahem*
I saw you over at Acen with your Paine costume.
You looked alot like Paine in that great costume and cool sword.
YOU REALLY RAWKED!!!!!
YOU REALLY RAWKED!!!!!
YOU REALLY RAWKED!!!!!
YOU REALLY RAWKED!!!!!
*coughs*
I'll think of more later.
Now for my question.What did you use to give your hair that whitish tinge to it?

Yui
05-20-2003, 03:43 PM
Yeah, Cindy rox! But we don't need to say that anymore probably (continues to inflate head.)
And Lilli rox as always, even when she doesn't have an official costume, she always looks so cute and cool - especially Lilli and Rosiel's Skies photos are gorgeous.
And Jason (a.k.a. Mr. Lilli) kicked butt in Lilli's Sanzo costume. We had our doubts, but he turned out to be such an absolutely awesome Sanzo-sama. I can't wait for us to revive Saiyuki-ness.
And Ziggy's Zack...how can anyone not be appreciative? It's silly and silver. ^_^

And just some random j-rock happiness I saw included the really nice Shinya, the GLB Mana, and the two cool Mizerable Gackts, and of course the complete Malice Mizer Gekka group, whom I was stalking like the whole day. Oh, and Julie's red Kana outfit - awesome job for your first cosplay and very cool some intelligent peeps even knew who you were (BTW, I'm still holding your panda hostage ^_-)

And thank you to me little WR group. The blood, sweat and tears (okay, maybe there wasn't any tears) for Darcia was worth it. After him and my Kaoru, I'm officially headdress obsessed...so expect more ridiculously huge things on my head coming soon....

TheLoneWolf
05-20-2003, 03:52 PM
Errrr.....so i'm not going to be at the business end of any more cosplay threats?;; ^^

I didn't promise that, now. I love threatening people, afterall. ^_-

Haha, hard to tell with some of them ^_^; I was the one without a hat, had glasses, and shorter but somewhat long hair.

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 04:20 PM
kylash327, by short do you mean the low-mid end of 5 foot :P but hey atleast the ADV ppl didnt yell at you saying you were a "too tall Alucard" .. grrrrrr... they mad me so mad... but then they begged me for a picture.. so victory was mine !! BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

Little Star
05-20-2003, 04:21 PM
TheLoneWolf:
LOL! Thankies! I shall save your song for posterity!

Yui: You Rock as well! I adored your costumes! They look SO kick arse in person! So much detail it made my head spin! & don't worry, my head is FAR from inflating! My self esteem can use some busting! lol! ^_^' Oh yeah! Say HI to Cat (aka Para Para girl extraordinaire) for me! ^_~

DarkMynd: I think I remember you! D'you have any picys?

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 04:23 PM

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 04:30 PM

kylash327
05-20-2003, 04:35 PM
It's long enough for being real ^_^ Alucard's hair length changes so much, almost any lenght is right

Little Star: I found it on Fansview, I dont know how they are about their pictures =\

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 04:39 PM

Little Star
05-20-2003, 04:43 PM
Thanks DarkMynd! I DO remember you! You were so perfect! I think I may have gotten a picy too! ^_^ If I did, I'll send it your way. Not positive though, since I wasn't the one takin the pics....

Little Star
05-20-2003, 04:57 PM
That would be pretty too though! ^_~

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 04:59 PM

No can do!

05-20-2003, 05:14 PM
Thank you for liking my Link, Jun!!!! I loved that costume so much, but I was gone most of the day taking pictures with kyle and... um... shinji (I don't know his name, sorry!), so I didn't get many pics. I think I Have one half of my body on fansview. Mr Stacey got a pic of me too, but he didn't use it. Oh well!!!

Were you the person with the Jin Tattoo? If so, awesome!

Rosiel
05-20-2003, 05:21 PM
> ppl stoped me cuz they didnt believe it.. so i let them give it a tug

The same thing happened to myself in my Yuber costume. I had people tugging on my braid a lot. Although I have to admit the last few inches /were/ fake. *whistles innocently*

> im rather blond naturally :P

And you dyed over that? What sadness!
Men with long blond hair are so sexy.
(Although I will admit the black suits you very well also.)

Anyway, enough ego-stroking for now. We love your hair, you love your hair, all's right with the world! ;)

Saeru
05-20-2003, 05:34 PM
I think I was impressed with about EVERYONE on cosplay.com.
I'll admit, I didn't know what to expect, but you all spent so much time getting your costumes accurate that it made me HAPPY.
At Acen last year, I didn't see a lot of costumes that really made me o.o, but this year I did. ^_^
Thanks all!

For further comments on acen costumes check out my gallery. I took a bunch of pics.

> i dont think i saw you there... which is sad, i wish i coulda tuged on the braid too :P

*laughs* Well next con we both attend, we can go through ritual-hair-tugging as a greeting.

As a side note, how did your hair weather the dye? I keep on flirting with the idea of dyeing my own hair, but I am afraid it would damage it badly due to the length and hence the fragility of the ends...

Hikaru0
05-20-2003, 06:08 PM
huttah! DarkMynd! I got a pic with you Friday night! I was the Charlotte who asked you to bite me, and then thanked you on Sunday XD
I wuv Shindee and Joolia and Barbarbarb's costumes soooo much! I could've licked them! XD
j/k.
sorta. XD
and Ashurii is such a wonderful person! I want to marry her! lol

barely anyone knew who I was dressed as *sniff* sadness....

DarkMynd
05-20-2003, 06:09 PM
as long as you dont use store bought stuff... that stuff is not good for your hair... but my hair handles it really well... like... right after you dye it, you hair feels a bit weird, a bit stiff.. but after a few shampooings it goes back to normal.. just with a different colour... atleast mine does, i dont know how your fragile ends will handle it tho... but what you can always do is just dye a small section of your hair and see how it turns out
I would dye like a small part of you ends to see how they handle it.. dont dye more then you can afford to chop off tho.. so like an inch just to see how it looks, if you wanna know more PM or IM me we'll chat

EDIT: Hikaru i remember you.. how could i forget... that was fun >=) i wish more ppl woulda let me bite them... ima biter :D

Hmm like everybody else I luved the matching dark chii caberet style dresses XD omg they were so cute!! :3 I luved the Princess Peach too!! Soooo adorable. There was a Dita from Chobits there too that I remember spazzing over. Damn I wish I had brought my Freya now!! The Zelda group was the shit too cuz I'm all about the Zelda-ness :3

ZiggyB
05-20-2003, 07:26 PM
Oooh, another costume that I thought was wonderful was CosPinay and her friends doing Paradise Kiss (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=41023) cosplay!

They were really cool costumes, even though I know nothing of the series. :)

Oh there's a funny story about this. So one of their friends who was crossplaying (also from Paradise Kiss) was sitting around with two other female PK cosplayers. This guy came up to ask to have a photo taken with them. But *only* with the two girls. Not with the crossplayer, even though they were in the same series. He was pretty insistent about it too. I don't think he ever did get that photo since other *nicer* people asking for photos got priority. ;-)

Hehe, I didn't think someone's hetrosexuality could be so easily threatened. :D

:D :D :D :D :D

That was us, the Chiis, the Link, and the Peach! This year was the first time we really tried to go all out with the costumes. Thank you for liking them!!! Barb says she's seen your freya around a lot, we both think it's very pretty. It's so great to find so many cosplayers living in and around the city.

Alisa
05-20-2003, 09:39 PM
Ah hah! My memory did fail me, it took me awhile to register, but I did talk to Barb in her cool Chii outfit. From the lack of sleep and the fact that she was in a costume, I didn't recognize her. X_x I feel a bit embarassed now. I would have first, complemented on how awesome her costume was, and then stayed and chatted with her longer. Most of the time at the convention I was trying to find my little cousins so they wouldn't cause any trouble.

Anyways, I really like the Limebarb.com crew. Their award was well worth it...I wish I wasn't sitting in the back row. (Thank goodness to the screens)

...Oh yeah my cousins especially liked Ryan's Link. They kept on tugging on me and pointing at you, "Look Alisa it's Link it's Link etc.!!!"

AngelSamui
05-20-2003, 10:58 PM
There were so many beautiful costumes at Acen. But my favs would have to be Little Star's Paine, the mirror Chiis, the whole Bloodlust group, the enormous No Face, the Darcia, and the Clover in the masquerade. Pretty much the same as everyone else, huh? ^_^;

Yes, I was Snake teh pocky thief. I really couldn't get enough pocky and that giant suncoast bag full of pocky cases was kind of a dead giveaway that I was a pocky gank.. ^_^;;; I'm over my pocky addiction now, the whole overdose thing kind of killed my need for it.

Now I sell it to my addicted friends for the cruel, high price of $8 a box. *does the rare, evil Snake-cackle*

There's an evil Snake cackle. Play Metal Gear Solid. When Snake is conversing with Liquid, and Liquid tries to dump his "Heros should be worshipped" BS on him, Snake's like all "HA!" and stuff... not really a cackle, but still. And he laughs every now and then during the codec convos...


.. yeah. ;P

It was undoubtedly me. You probably happened to be on the same channel as my friend Ben (the guy who cosplayed the nuke warehouse guard), channel five. I probably got a bit lippy and sweary and annoyed, because I needed to get in touch with Ben before I could go out and get some food.. X_x so.. if I cussed you out, I'm sorry. No harm intended. XD

I think I Have one half of my body on fansview. Mr Stacey got a pic of me too, but he didn't use it. Oh well!!!

Were you the person with the Jin Tattoo? If so, awesome!

Yup, that was me with the tattoo ^_^

Either way, I probably should have stabbed you. :)

I liked the Chiis (you know the black and pink ones), Little Star's Paine (Very Impressive Hair), Bloodlust Group, Domo-kuns, the ein and hello-kitty, the single soul that dressed as Onizuka from GTO, and then the costumes that I made!!!! (I made Jr.'s (from Xenosaga) coat, and the Pimp Ash Poke-hos costumes..)

Hmmm........ Which costumes did I like most?........
I would have more of an openion if I hadn't spent almost the entire weekend in my hotel room up till the Masquerade working on finishing my Bloodlust costumes. No I am not bitter :) I just need to learn not to take on 11 costumes for one convention :(
Sadly I cant easily point out which costumes I liked the best but I must say the costumes do seem to be getting better and better almost each year. Thank you everyone for giving everyone some nice eye candy to look at the entire weekend. I only wish I could have enjoyed all your lovely costumes first hand at the con.

Keep on keepin on

Yeah Ziggy, I thought that was kinda funny how that guy didn't want my boyfriend in the pic, even though we were from the same series. He was dressed as isabella, who in the manga is a drag queen...but a classy one. *^_^*
he ended up not coming back, i guess he was expecting fan service. It was my friends first time con, and she really didn't know what to expect, so the creepy drooling fan boys were kinda frightening her. poor thing.

its weird this acen was NOT crossplay friendly really. i had near no pics taken searched through hundreds if not thousands an no pics of me yet minus kevin lillard an friends. i know ppl took my pic as rabi en rose an others...but alot ppl werent any fun. drag queen from paradise kiss nor a non female rabi en rose is not wrong -_-;; i thik cosplay is cosplay regardless of gender of the cosplayer =-P

05-22-2003, 07:35 PM
CosPinay: Hehe, yah, it was quite amusing watching him trying to use his "skillz" to get a picture of you and your female friend sans b/f. ;-)

Oh speaking of which, I do have a picture of you and your b/f (Isabella?). I just need to fix it a little before posting it. It's a little too dark, hard to see the details. :)

So here's the question again, if Isabella is a drag queen in the manga, was your b/f really crossplaying? :)

Oh what happened to his dress? All I saw was a lot of laughing and lots or tugging in the back. :>

Anyway, it was great seeing you again. :) You guys have gotten me interested into see what Paradise Kiss is all about. Yah, like I didn't have enough manga to read. ;-)

Did anyone see my Anthys? A lot of people took our picture but I don't think anyone here did. I was with my twin, she was movie Anthy and I was Tv Anthy.

Yui
05-22-2003, 08:46 PM
yeah Menchi, that's why I don't even bother to go into the crossplay forum anymore...cuz it doesn't really matter. Gender is completely irrelavant.
Still, it was fun that some guys totally thought I was another guy when wearing Darcia (I guess that's understandable?) based on the interesting converstation they were having with (rather "at") me. And a few people were "unsure" when I was walking around as Dias later. That's the way it ought to be. ^_- I just gotta make sure I don't say anything and blow my cover...

05-23-2003, 01:38 AM
yui: ya looked great if only i coudl look half as good in costme ^^;;; but am rahter plain looking. minus my scandalous costume on sat morning...which i only got 3 pics an hundreds of dirty looks.

Peppermintstix - I saw your Anthys as I was going up the escalator! I couldn't turn around to get back down though. >< Lovely work though! It's too bad you guys couldn't be in the masquerade. You should for another con, if you're able to!

Menchi - Don't let people like that get you down. If somebody gives you a dirty look, just smile and wave! I don't understand the intolerance towards male crossplayers, but the only thing to do is keep trying to change attitudes! (Two of my male friends are interested in doing crossplay, and I'm doing my best to encourage them.)

Menchi
05-23-2003, 12:42 PM
ayaka: its kewl it was jus disapointing this acen, LOVED that rabi costume alot an wore it proudly. even if the ppl didnt like seein it ^^ oh btw keep encouraging them on doin it...cant hurt to see ppl cross unwritten lines for the love of anime...

I kept messing with old Snake in the Box. It was humourous.

Also I cannot stress how good the clover skit's wings were. I thought they were a shoe in for a craftsmanship award.

Also a very cute Sawa from Kite who didn't get regonized.

I got the nice surprise of a group who did gatekeepers 21 characters. That was fun because it is a somewhat obscure series

Chibi Vash was adorable. Still couldn't believe of all things to happen Donut vash's coat would not be finished in time. Aw well, his little cousin was adorable regardless.

I was the worst case of mistaken identity at the convention I think. Almost everyone mistook my Reiji Kageyama (gatekeepers) costume as being Victoria Seras from Hellsing. Others thought the embroidery was a pokeball (now that was an insult!) and others just got a kick over the red eyes from the contacts (Who would have thought red contacts I bought would get so much attention?)

XD omg You recognized us!!! Like nobody recognized us *at all* My roommates and I fell in love with the series when we saw it. I was so gung ho about makin an Ayane costume they decided to make a group out of it since I wanted to do it so badly I helped a smidge with funding for it :3

o.o You even had red contacts? Thats so kick ass! Ooooh now I wanna see a pic really badly!

Where do I begin?

This was my second time at a con and it was fun! I thought the masquerade lacked a little compared to last year's. No Godzilla mech and the cliches wore out.

I really dug those Phantasy Star costumes, but I only saw them very briefly. Did they wear them around much or just when it was dark? Whoever you are, they looked great. How did you cut the acrylc?

Strong Bad was funny, simple but made my day.

That Paine (did I spell that right?) costume was just incredible. You can really tell she put in effort. Or were you like most of us and only got it done at the last minute? :crylaugh:

Who was the bearer of Pocky? My friend just yelled out and asked him for Pocky. He gave us free Pocky everytime we met him. XD

I wanted to ask where that Alucard got those guns. I think they came from some box set but I haven't been able to find them. Do they fire bb's?

The con keeps getting crowdier. It's going to be harder to walk around in costume in the future. I was the Clover guy. It was already hard to walk around and keep from bumping into people.

I thought there was more crossplay this year. I didn't know people had so many problems. Everyone looked like they were having fun. People shouldn't give others a hard time at a con.

Hahhaa it was great that Gatekeepers had a decent cosplay turnout with you three and then myself and my roomate (he dressed as Bancho) despite so few noticing who the heck we were.

Yeah Ohayocon and if I hit anime reactor will probably have me dressing as Satoka from Gatekeepers 21. She rocks so much even if nobody recognizes her.

My favorite costumes were: Princess Peach, she was so cute ^.^ The pink and black Chi's, inspired me to make my own Chi costume. Paine was just gorgeous. Both the Domo Kun's were hilarious. Ein and Hello Kitty were so cute. My all time favorites of the con were the Iron Chef M.C. guy and No Face. I have a pic of No Face playing with my friends little sis who was dressed as Chihior (sp?) It was so cute. ^.^

Oh god, I loved Chairman Kaga (Iron Chef) He's a friend of ours, imagine our surprise when he pulls the pepper out and takes a bite.

The world is truly coming to an end.

aww shucks, thanks :D I felt vindicated by all the people who loved our costumes and took our pictures. it almost made up for not getting in the masaquerade. Although I think I won't even bother with the masaquerade next year. wearing the costume is fun enough.

I'd have to say that some of my favorite characters were ZiggyB's squall and the clover characters. One of the girl had the full expanding wings. Very nice job on those.

ShugoTenshi: Hey thanks so much.

I really liked your NERV costume. Ok, I'm a sucker for gadgets and when I saw all the little bits and bobs on your costume, it made it look really cool.

I have a picture of your costume somewhere. I'll post it soon. :)

Can I take it from your av that you're going to cosplay Shuugo? XD I love him, I'm working on a Shuugo costume, too. ^^ Looking forward to seeing yours!

While the Masqurade was not as brilliant this year as last year in many people's minds...I feel that there was OVERALL a higher level of quality to the performances, even if it wasn't quite as good. Most people in the Green Room were also really nice about everything, and while my costume wasn't exactly elaborate (I hope to come with more detail, and a few more fan favorate characters next year), I had a helluva lot of fun, and wish I could've seen what performances I missed.




Lets see...favorate costumes for this year?


PokePimp and Pika Hoes...

G-Gundam Schwartz...

Zeta Gundam Char/Quattro...

Vash and the Postman (He was a great guy to, got to talk with him for a long time after the Masqurade).

Princess Peach and Princess Daisey (I was Sooo happy to see both of em, and your Peach costume was just amazing.)

Link and Sheik (Being a huge Smash Bros Melee fan, seeing Peach, Link, and Sheik together just was the shiznitz for someone like me. Add a Gannondorf that's as good and I would've screamed with glee)

I got a kick out of the Giant Noface of course...


This Armitiage was fantastic...

The Jin-Roh Armor was cool...

This girl made a just made an incredibly beautiful Aeris...
http://images.cosplay.com/photo.php?photo=3230&exhibition=24


and I just plain loved that mask...

I'm sure there are others, but there were just so many good costumes this year I can't remember em all...

06-12-2003, 06:44 PM
My favorites were Kingdom Hearts Cloud, the Naruto group who posed a lot, of course the Paine and her trio (go Ryukku and Green Tea!!), Dark, and i'm sure i'm forgetting a handful. ^_^;;;

On Saturday there were two girls cosplaying as Excel and Hyatt. Their costems looked very authentic. The Excel put my costume to shame. :(

I loved the Snake in the box. Snake was what instantly came to my mind when I saw the costuem while in line for regstering.

The many Nabeshins that were there. Heck, I liked any fellow Excel Saga cospalyer. I even saw a Puchuu.

While there were alot of them, all most all of the Chi cosplayers did a very good job at theirs. I loved the dresses.

And my friends who went as Belldandy, Skuld and Urd. Belldandy made our costumes and did an excellent job with them. Urd turned out a bit too sexy though. She had fanboys following her all weekend. ^_^

I'm wondering if any of you saw me. I was Lenne on Saturday, I was the one with butt-length red hair ^^

My favorite costumes included:
Ein and Hello Kitty
Pimpin' Ash and the Pokehoes (I got a GREAT picture of you guys somewhere)
Limebarb's Link
My friend Mariko as Garnet (she was the one with longish-black hair...her costume was so beautiful)
Troppy and RikkuX as Gunner Yuna and Thief Rikku (Rikku took a picture with me! *glomp*)
The Chibi-Vash
The three guys as Squall, Seifer and Zell (I got an awesome picture of them...Squall and Seifer are dueling with their gunblades with Zell in the background looking disgusted)
And a ton more

Hey, what about the little three year old dressed up as Sano? He was so cute, I gave him a hug ^_^

I loved all the costumes I saw ^_^ but it was my first con so I was just happy to see other cosplayers.
Menchi: I would've taken your pic if I had a camera. You gave me a hug becuase I was stressed out, and on saturday my boyfriend sat down and talked to you because he's kinda scared of crossplay people. Then he was like "well it's not so bad if they're like that guy and actually look kinda like a girl" I don't know if you consider that an insult or compliment :D

Ha Ha well the funny thing is that my botfriend used to cross dress a lot to shock people, then after high school he became really religous and now it scares him. I know dosen't make any sense. It makes him cringe when I pull out the old photos of him in my dress kissing his best friend! Yeah Kurt Cobain syndrom will do that to ya. Too bad you don't remeber ACEN you looked purdy!

oh and he ment the looks like a girl comment as a compliment, meaning you did a good job.

Ooh, I'm extremely late (and I want a custom status ^_^; ) but here's my list:

-The Celas Victoria I met in the corridor on the way to the dealers' room. Thank you for not turning around and whacking me in the head with your cannon. ^_~
-The Millie that was with her. She had a huge gun too.
-I have no idea what character he was, but he was wearing red body armor and had red spiky hair. I was right behind him in line for the masquerade.
-The Yuna and Rikku I now refer to as "Kawaii Yuna and Kawaii Rikku". You know who you are. ^_^
-The SHEIK!!! Although I didn't see her personally, I had already left Chicago by that time ._.;

If there's anyone I missed, I will go Ritsu Sohma on you (GOOOOOOOMEN NASAI!!! and such)

Many thanks to the folks who mentioned "Chairman Isaac" from the Iron Guest events. The jacket was my work. Well, the *jacket* came from Goodwill, but once I'd hit it with appliques, iridescent embroidery, 4 kinds of ribbon, and more than 60 (!!!) *kinds* of beads, I figure it counted as my work. I was sure I was crazy when I was doing it, but hey, I liked the results.

There were far too many rockin' costumes to single anybody out. I've been to every A-Cen, and I really think the average level of skill and care in cosplaying has increased every year.

For the record, I was Kyoko in the Maison Ikkoku/Excel Saga crossover sketch, if anybody remembers it. I also was Sadako, the ghost from _Ringu_ (the live-action horror movie remade here as _The Ring_.) Simple costume - a white kimono, "dead"-ish makeup and my long hair all in front of my face. Nobody saw me because I was working a midnight-8 shift in the video rooms. I really hoped *somebody* would have seen Ringu, then seen me lurch out of the video room at about 4 AM... Ah well.

Next year, I'll definitely try to catch up with the cosplay.com crew, though as I'll probably be working video again my free time will be limited.
