View Full Version : Who was What?

Hi, everyone!

I'm Ryan Williams, part of Limebarb.com. This year was our first year really trying for cosplay at Anime Central, and we made a ton of costumes. I realize that a lot of people probably don't know who was cosplaying as what, since there were so many convincing costumes this year. I thought maybe to help me and anyone else who isn't sure exactly who was doing what, we could all list what costumes we were in on what days, and maybe post pictures of them to help people out!

Also, I'd like to get to know everyone active at ACEN so we can make some friends for next year.

Or group was:

FRIDAY: Chobits

Chii/Elda (Barb)
Dark Chii/Freya (Julia)
Hideki (Ryan)
Shinbo (Eric).

We were the dark and light chiis with the pink/black dresses, and Shinbo had a little Sumomo on his bag. Oh, poor Sumomo. I wonder what became of you....

SATURDAY: Video Games

Rydia {Final Fantasy IV} (Julia)
Link {Super Smash Brothers/The Legend of Zelda} (Ryan)
Peach {Super Smash Brothers/Super Mario Bros.} (Barb)

We had the Amano styled Rydia (think lots of green), the adult Link with sword and shield, and the Princess Peach with the HUGE pink dress. ^_^ That was my favorite day (Even though the hideki costume was cool, I liked my Link much better :D )

SUNDAY: Pita Ten

Ten-Chan (Ryan)
Kotaru (Eric)
Misha (Julia)
Koboshi (Barb)

The crew got into their Pita-Ten costumes as a reward for being in bone-crunching corsets for the past two days. I couldn't resist being Link again, so I went on my own. :( It was okay though, because I got to take pictures with cosplay.com's Malon and an excellent sheik. Barb eventually got back into her Peach outfit for more pictures and the day....went very well.

We had 11 other full costumes at Anime Central, but worn by other people.

I'll update this with pictures as soon as I can find some (We didn't take any of ourselves), and I hope that everyone else can provide their own costume descriptions and pictures. That way, everyone (or maybe just me) will be able to put these forum names behind those great costumes!!!

-Ryan

EDIT: Fun with vB code. :D

On Friday, I was Metal Gear Solid 1 Snake, along with my friend Ben, whom was a guard from the Nuke Warehouse Area in MGS1.

Saturday, I was Iroquois Pliskin from Metal Gear Solid 2, and Ben went as the Spike Spiegel with glasses and short green hair. Spiked up.

Sunday, I did "Snake Eater" from Metal Gear Solid 3 (out in '04), and Ben reprised his role as the Nuke Warehouse guard. (I'm gonna work on his costume more and make it Johnny Sasaki-ish).

Every day, I had the cardboard box. Unfortunately, wearing it all that time made me pull every bloody muscle in my lower back and legs, which has left me in pain for a while. It might miss a day or two of cons.

Hi Ryan!!
It was great to see you two again.
Loved the costumes
and congrats to your group on winning best journeyman craftsmanship award.
I almost didn't reconize you two on the first day but I'm happy I got to talk to you two at the con.

For everyone who was at Acen I was dress as Dita from Chobits in the afternoon on friday and whole day on Saturday.
Umm here's a picture of me in my costume taken with one of the Chii cosplayers.

huttah! Ryan is figuring out forum boards!!
here was my lineup-

Friday I was Hikaru from Magic Knight Rayearth, but the costume was from the second Artbook and no one knew who I was ;_; I was the girl in pink with flowers in my wig. Later that evening I changed into Charlotte from Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust, but again no one knew who I was *sigh* I didn't really mind though, I was comfy :D

Saturday I was Alexiel from Angel Sanctuary. x.x dooode, the wings are PAINFUL. I changed into Charlotte again after the masqurade.

Sunday I was once again Charlotte. XD It's just such a comfy pretty costume!

RyanW
05-21-2003, 01:11 AM
Yes! I have figured out the boards! Well.... Not completely. :\

Oh, Lordy! I love Dita! I want to cosplay as Zima more than ANYTHING! If I do, I promise I'll drink nothing but Zima all con long....

I wish I had thought of all my Meier Link jokes for your Charlette, Beth. I love how he calls her "Shaaaarlette".

05-21-2003, 01:18 AM
Ryan you should sooo cosplay as Zima!! :P

RyanW
05-21-2003, 01:19 AM
The popular non-alcoholic beverage, or the persocon?

pyro anarchy
05-21-2003, 01:27 AM
Zima persocon from Chobits. Blah!! :P
Haha I think it'll be funnie too if you did cosplay as Zima from Chobits and walk around holding a Zima bottle.

RyanW
05-21-2003, 01:32 AM
Hmmmm. Would Zima drink Zima?

I simply have to say I like your costumes you wore at ACen.
I wanted to take a picture of you
when you were in your Karen-chan from Sister Princess.
I'm glad I got to meet you and talk to you a bit.
Hopefully I'll see you later in future cons. ^^

I didn't arrive until Saturday morning. My cousins Andy(older) was Human Inu Yasha and Alan was Shippo. Around the afternoon, Andy was jealous of how many pictures Alan was getting and forced Alan to switch him costumes. ^-^' kids... Alan wouldn't give it up until my aunt gave him $10.

SAT(morning): Kagome ~ Inu Yasha --thanks Limebarb!!
(afternoon): Dizzy ~ Guilty Gear X/X
(evening): Shia-chan ~ Pita Ten
Sunday: That was my shopping day, didn't really wear a costume

Oh I wish I could have gotten a picture with this group:
SUNDAY: Pita Ten

Well, it was a fleeting opportunity, so don't feel too bad. I never did get into my Ten-Chan getup because I wanted to do Link/Malon photos with cosplay.com, and Barb got back into her peach outfit for more pictures, since she was with her mom most of the day before.


p.s. That box got what he deserved.....

The costumes I wore at Acen...

Friday - Yuber from Suikoden III... which ended up being more and more casual as the night wore on. *laughs* Braids give me headaches!

Saturday - Ramirez as a Silvite from Skies of Arcadia (this one needs a photo due to utter obscurity (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=40452&papass=&sort=2&thecat=500) since the game is not widely known, the character is not one of the main ones, and the outfit is seen in one shot of an optional sidequest. I overdid myself this time, not a single person identified me. >< Luckily the costume was flashy enough to draw crowds anyway. ^_^).

Both had weapons which I think violated the 4 foot rule, so I had to use my stealth skills (which made it possible to keep Yuber's swords with me during Katsucon) in order not to have them sent back to my room.

05-21-2003, 11:50 AM
I missed an Amon?! Nooo~ ><; Which is odd cause I think I saw all of you in all your costumes, except Kylash doing Amon! (Err . . . I really like WHR . . .)

Lessee as for me . . . I couldn't finish the costumes I wanted to, but hey, I had a good time anyway. ^^
Friday - Sanzo from Saiyuki
Saturday - ~2PM - Katou from Angel Sanctuary
~ 2:30 - Ayane from Dead or Alive
~ 5:30 - Toboe from Wolf's Rain
masq and rest of the night - Katou again
Sunday - Sanzo again because I couldn't wear shoes cause of a bad cut

I also had a fair hand in a Dorothy from Big O costume I helped my friend make, she was wearing that around on Saturday with my other friend doing a great Roger Smith. ^^

Um... let's see... I wore

Squall - Friday (morning-afternoon)
Johnny (DDR) - Friday night

Zack (DOA) - Saturday morning - afternoon
Nanbara (Hand Maid May) Saturday night

Squall - Sunday

I was gonna do more costume changes on Friday, but it was just too hectic. I couldn't get to where I was going anyway! I was completely unable to make the dealer room until Saturday afternoon. :)

Well I probably didn't help that I got stopped for pictures every 5 ft which I guess isn't such a bad thing. :>

RyanW: Btw, your skit was hilarious! Sorry, the geek in me was in heaven when you guys were spouting out the technobabble about the data transfer rates and the remote for turning on Chii was very well done. ;-)

Yui
05-21-2003, 03:22 PM
Well for me was...
Friday, all-day - Kaoru from Dir en Grey's FILTH (big tubey, glowing garbage helmet)...& was supposed to change into Lida later, but I forgot one of the pieces at home X_x* So yeah, just one costume on Friday.
Saturday til around 6 pm - Darcia from Wolf's Rain (white face mask, black feathery-ness, pvc, etc.)
Saturday nighttime - Dias form Star Ocean EX (blue hair, big sword)
Sunday - Krelian from Xenogears (though as the day went on, I too began to get more casual with his costume...)

Uh yeah, only four then for me this time. Just how the weekend happened.

BTW, Jason and I *did* recognize Rydia. >^_^< It took us a little after the fact, but then we really really appreciated it. (There's plots about to coherce me into some FF4 cosplay soon...hehe, but I'm glad there's other cosplayers out there who care, too. ^_-)

Rydia {Final Fantasy IV} (Julia)
Link {Super Smash Brothers/The Legend of Zelda} (Ryan)

I saw this group on Saturday, and I have to say that the costumes were absolutely awesome! :)

Saturday nighttime - Dias form Star Ocean EX

I also saw this on Saturday night, but it looked like Yui was pretty busy. I wanted a picture, but I didn't want to be bothersome. She was already surrounded by photographers. :) (Star Ocean is a great video game and it was cool to see a Star Ocean cosplayer in person.)

This was my schedule at ACen:

Friday - Touga (Shoujo Kakumei Utena) - It was my first time wearing the costume together with the wig, and I had a blast with bright red hair. It made the whole costume more fun!

Friday (rest of the group) - Saionji, Dios, Akio, Anthy (or Anshii, all from Utena), and Mei Lin (Card Captor Sakura)

Saturday - Hotohori (Fushigi Yuugi) - This costume was unbelievably comfortable.

Saturday (rest of group) - Tasuki, Nuriko, Mitsukake, Miaka, Chichiri, Nyan Nyan (all from Fushigi Yuugi), and Saionji (Utena).

Sunday - I was just me, myself, and I.

I saw a lot of you there, but unfortunately, I don't think I had a chance to talk to most of you! : / Perhaps some other convention some other time.

Irvy
05-21-2003, 04:45 PM
Hehe I was reppin FF in my costumes ^_^
Friday: Zidane
( I wore Irvine for a couple of hours)
Saturday morning: Zidane
Afternoon: Vincent Valentine
Night: Irvine
Sunday: Easy costume, Ken Hidaka.

05-21-2003, 05:06 PM
Friday- I cosplayed as Ryuji Yamazaki (Fatal Fury Version) although pyro here swore up and down that I wasn't cosplaying anything! ;)

Saturday- I was Testament from Guilty Gear with the scythe so large, (both pole and blade were over 4 ft.) that I could only carry it during the big GG photoshoot! :rolleyes: I can't blame security though, it really was hard carrying it around with so many people there!!

Sunday- Iori Yagami from King of Fighters. The outfit was comfortable enough to wear on the ride home. On the other hand, I did get strange looks from people when we stopped for gas...and I wasn't even wearing my red wig!! :thumbsup:

Eeep. I'm never busy...unless I'm physically lugging a TV or a computer or two...which is getting unfortunately somewhat common. Yeah, but if I'm just milling around, come say hi or make me go do crazy poses. If I'm in cosplay, I'm just amiable hallway decoration. I was surrounded by photographers cuz I was just hanging out with them.
My niece was Precis, tho >^_^< She was kinda sad cuz the BlueSphere version, while slightly easier to create, was not as recognizable, and then she was getting mad at me since no one knew who she was without me standing around. ^_^** Um, but there will be more SO groupage this year (hehe...somewhat my fault), so I hope SO cosplays don't remain too rare an occurance.

Hey Ryan, it's Jen! It was really nice to see you and Barb at ACen! I kept looking for you guys at a table, but didn't see you guys and was really bummed! Then I saw a Peach and a Link and asked for a pic and she turned around and....it's Barb and you! Yay! All of your costumes were amazing! Especially the Chobits costumes, my Mom loved them too, she took a few pics of Barb in hers when we didn't even know it was her. Btw, when she was like, "Who are YOU?!" she meant who were you cosplaying as. I told her later and she felt bad you thought she was yelling at you or something. XD The Link and Princess Peach were awesome and I didn't know you guys did Pita Ten too! Aaah I missed those! ;_; Anyhoo, look at me rambling on and on again!

On Thursday I was Elle, one of the mascots for ACen. They seem to change in how they look every year though. Friday and Saturday I was Dejiko from Digi Charat http://www.fansview.com/2003/animecentral/img9778.jpg and I was Mana in the masquerade with the giant, farting Domo-kun! :B

Yui
05-21-2003, 06:26 PM
Jen! >^_^< Yea, I'm glad you're around here, too, now. Thanx so much for letting me stash all my stuff in your room Thursday afternoon.
Yeah, & now that you're exploring j-rock cosplays, keep me posted. ^_-

jennekohan
05-21-2003, 07:23 PM
Yui! ::glomp:: It's no problem! It was nice to be able to chill with you. When you get the chance would you please tell Bri and Jen thanks for helping with the masquerade? We had to haul Domo-kun out of the hall and there were so many people I couldn't find them again and I felt really bad. ;_; Oooh and yes yes Dustin and I have many a J-Rock costume we hope to make in the future too!

RyanW
05-21-2003, 07:39 PM
Jen, awesome! We were glad to meet your mom again. Last time I think she was really tired. Tell your mom Barb's sorry for being stupid, it happens to her a lot. :\

Other than that, congratulations on the farting!!!

Glad you liked our costumes, cuz we loved yours!


You know, I'd really like to comment on all the great costumes, but I'm so out of the loop that I hardly remember any of them, or what they're from. Once cosplay.com gets pictures up, lets all link to our costumes so we can really know who was what.

On Friday (and part of staurday evening) I was Narusegawa Naru from Love HIna episode 16. I was wearing her Goku costume. I was surprised people knew who I was :D
This is the only pic i have right now (i found this on fansview.com):
http://www.fansview.com/2003/animecentral/img9333.jpg
(such a bad pic of me >_<)
It came out waaaay too short and I didn't finish it until the day of the con- I forgot a lot of my stuff at home so I had to improvise- like the neck scarf thing I had to make out of an ugly red shirt I bought while I was there).

On saturday morning/afternoon I was a bootleg Jin Kazama from Tekken tag. The jacket got mangled and I had to make a skirt instead of the pants b/c they didn't come out right- I made the pants 3 different times and finally about two hours before I had to be at the airport to go to Illinois I made the skirt (I didn't have enough time or fabric left to make a fourth pair pf pants).

Then on Sunday I was Hwoarang from Tekken in his biker outfit (white tank top version). The one costume tnhat didn't suck. That's probably b/c it was an older costume.

I wasn't really happy with my costumes this year..they came out really bad.. mostly due to the fact that I'm such a procrastinator..ah well...my next set will better (i'm starting them immediatly and otakon isnt till august-so i'll have plenty of time).

Tanuki Beth
05-21-2003, 07:48 PM
I missed a K9999 photo op? Aww...

Friday - Emi from DDR 4th Mix
Saturday and Sunday - Muto Yugi from Yugi-Oh

I Hope that I don't have to use beeswax for my hair ever again. I'm still trying to get the stuff out of my hair.

Aaaaw man. I would have loved to see you as Hwoarang. It's always really cool (and cute) to see girls dressing as Jin and Bob.

I wish I could have talked to you more, but I was so busy. You seemed really shy too, but you don't seem so here. I hope I didn't do anything that made you nervous. Maybe I'll see you again! Finish up the Jin costume and I'll wear my Violet when we meet again! I'll get some pics up for you soon!

Yeah, its too bad we didn't get to chat more.. I am really shy actually ^_^" at least when I first meet people. I'll have to put up some of my pics of my bob costume (once i get them developed). If i ever get my scanner working that is >_<
I don't think I can finish my Jin costume..its kinda beyond repair, heh..I'd have to remake it again...maybe after I get all of my other costumes out of the way I'll make another attempt. I'd like my next tekken costume to be Julia in her T4 green outfit (if i can get in shape by then anyways). Or maybe I'll dye my hair and be Nina..who knows? ^_^" I have so many costumes I want to do Its kinda tough to decide.

Yeah, I was violet last year, but my gloves were messy, and the shirt wasn't sparkly enough. We totally redid the gloves and shirt, and instead of dying my hair, I'm just going to wear a wig. But I'm glad you saw me, you should have said hi, I would have clapped gay-ly and said "Well Done, Jun!"

Thank you! For previous years the majority of the sewing was done by a seamstress out here, but I did do a big part of the work as well. This year I really got into sewing though and made Dejiko and Mana and my brother and I worked on Domo-kun together. I just saw a picture of your Crimson Cat Shadow and it totally rocks! I missed that along with a ton of other costumes because I was sick until Saturday night. ;_; Poo!

Erika here.

I did exactly what I said I was going to do. Angel from KoF on Friday, Garnet and formal Rinoa on Saturday [altho' I took dreadful sick at two o'clock and slept till five...then didn't wear a costume for the rest of the day], and Queen of Vengeance Urd on Sunday.

Now I've got to get ready for AKon....*mutters to herself and glares at her art list*

I absolutely loved that KoF costume, Erika. I have to tell you, mostly naked costumes are hard to do. Either your butt is always falling out or your legs get some monster bruise the night before, and talk about chilly. I thought your use of tights and solid, soft colors really made the costume work perfectly.

I also like that when asked "Who are you", you responded "Erika Door". Lets get into character, people!!!

Also, I had previously suggested to the Pichu ho and the Pikachu ho that they ditch the Pimp Ash and just go shopping together. I'm glad to see that in fact, it was Ash ho and Pichu Ho. It makes me feel hope for the world.

hmmm..... interesting. I actually need to do a photoshoot in a cemetary as well. Do you know of a good local one? Let me know if you do, you need not post just give me a ring. We could both do our photoshoots at the same time if it could work out that way. It would probably just be the Markus bros if anyone. Yeah well please atleast let me know of a cemetary if you know of a good one.

<-Branden->

Oh yeah I was Borgoff Markus at the Saturday night Masq. I didn't get the chance to wear any other costumes because I was held prisoner in my hotel room working on my bloodlust costumes. :crylaugh:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you wana know who made what for my bloodlust project heres a basic explanation sinse it was a group effert:
D- costume by me (unfinished), sword made by Arek W. (he was D), Armor by me and Joshua Palmer. Carmilla- Costume by me, hair commisioned ( I know lil' about wigs). Meier- Costume by me, Armor by me with help w/sanding and detail painting. Charlotte- gown by me, cloak by Erin Hamberg, hair commisioned. Leila- costume by Lauren W., Gun and holster by me with help from Josh and some others w/sanding. Borgoff Markus- costume made by me(unfinished), crossbow designed and constructed by Arek W. Kyle Markus- costume by me (unfinished), buckle by Josh, knives made by Arek, Josh, and I. Nolt- costume made by me w/assistance from Aaron M. (he was Nolt), huge hammer/steak (texas toothpick) made by Arek, Aaron, Josh, and I. Spirit Grove- costume made by me. Sickly Grove- mostly thrown together to save time. Caroline- made by Ashley Rice. Machilla- costume made by me. Benge- costume made by me, weapon made by Josh and I. All other vampires made by respective wearers.
:thumbsup:
Dang that was a long list! remind me to never take on such a huge project and not be finished before the convention begins. No matter how important please do not spend the better half of a con in your room working on costumes, you may regret it later. :crylaugh:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now I am wondering if anyone actually read all that crap I just typed up. Sorry for being long winded I guess I just wanted to give credit where credit was due. Thank you all my dear friends who helped make the project posible!:D

I was one of the non-standard Urds. I didn't have a budget and was at the Ramada so I couldn't change. I had a miko outfit that pretty much stayed on its hanger.

I only found one pic online, from fansview.com

:crylaugh: Loving the McDonalds cup in that pic. He literally caught me from the long walk back, the counter behind me is pretty much the only reason I was even standing.

I wore this outfit pretty much all weekend with the exception of Friday night when I was Urd in the black pants, top and jacket.

Hehe, Kevin seems to have such fun taking pictures of all of us, but he always catches me off-guard too. He comes out of nowhere and disappears into the shadows before you even had a chance to pose sometimes. ^_^**
He is like the photo ninja.

DOODE. that should be Kevin's new name. "Photo Ninja" XD his coverpage of fansview should be something like "Like a ghost he appears from the shadows only to snap your soul and dissapear before you can even blink.."
or something XD
that's awsome Yui

Justice - Drop me a PM or something, I'm not sure where Cherry Valley is but I know of a number of good photographic cemetaries in Chicago. There's one in Barrington with some cool pine trees and old headstones I've always thought would be cool for photos, and there's also one near the city which is very old and cool.

Ebony - I think you're one of the Urds we grabbed Friday night outside the karaoke room? My friend was in black vinyl Urd. ^^

And I agree, Kevin Lillard is definitely a photo ninja! lol.

05-22-2003, 06:30 PM
LOL, there were so many photo ninjas out there it isn't even funny. But Kevin was the most memorable.

Ayaka: Yup, that was me. I love your friends outfit. It was the one I originally wanted to do but didn't have the time (or money) to make. Probably one of the best Urds out there. Compared to the others my Urd was pretty ghetto IMHO.

Eeep. I'm never busy...unless I'm physically lugging a TV or a computer or two...which is getting unfortunately somewhat common. Yeah, but if I'm just milling around, come say hi or make me go do crazy poses. If I'm in cosplay, I'm just amiable hallway decoration. I was surrounded by photographers cuz I was just hanging out with them.

I know what you mean about the computers. A few people in my group lugged around laptops for part of the weekend. Heh. Hopefully I'll catch you at another convention, say hello, and take a couple shots. Crazy poses are always fun! If your other costumes are as good as your Dias, I'm sure they'll be good pictures. :)

Graceland cemetary is rather nice, as is Rosehill. I'll be getting pictures of Graceland up within the month along with my acen pics.

Btw, if anyone is curious...I was the female Arucard from Hellsing, and the guy that looked like he was one of the 3 wisemen. ^_^; It was supposed to be Adam Kadam, but I am looking for pics of me...since I really didn't get any of myself.

I just went as a violent psychopath all three days. Sorry to all the people I may have freaked out. Hey, at least I didn't attack anyone, right?

For the record and the sake of the masses (Ryan obviously already knows), my esteemed comrades cosplayed as...

Crystal was a creepy GGX Testament on Saturday. I still have nightmares.

And Kurt-line was Iron Chef's Chairman Kaga on Saturday and Sunday. He's still eating.

My imaginary friends cosplayed as me, and mocked me the entire time. I hate them.

Oh, and BTW:

The only thing about the inner-city cemetaries is that they can be closely guarded, or locked for the good twilight hours. Just be careful, or ask permission.

Thanx for the cemetary suggestions but we're not from the city ^.^;; Cornfields all the way! Theres a bootiful cemetary in a victorian town nearby the two of us methinks we'll go to. And it doubles as a trip to drag me mum there so she can finally visit a friend there she hasn't visited in years. XD I'm excited to take pics by the tombstones carved to look like giant tree trunks *.* I've always luved them since I was a kid.

XD and Kevin as a photo ninja is so hilarious yet so fitting...a bootiful idea!

Yes We are children of the corn. Corn fields to the left of us, cornfields to the right of us. AHH!! THE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE NIGHTMARES OF MUTATED RADIOACTIVE CORN!!!!!! MAKE THEM STOP!! BEWARE, the corn is upon us. keep one eye open as you sleep or els you may never wake from your slumber. true they masquerade as food but they are actually plotting our demise as we sleep. Watch the dark fields for the sign, thousands and thousands of tiny yellow eyes.
Who would be our saviour? will it be photo ninja task force captain Kevin? He could despence his flash all over the corn fields to blind the caniving corn. As the corn field control force cuts down the rebel mutant corn with ice picks. Will he accept the task?
If you came from cornfields you would understand and learn to fear that which is known only as corn.

But anyway if you meen me when you say we which I hope you do Mel. let me know where this cemetary lie. And we will make it happen. Even if I don't get my bloodlust pictures taken maybe you would allow me to go along and maybe even donne my Kung-Fu Master aka gothic chinese man slave costume. HAHA

Yeah well thats whats I gots ta say

Saeru's album has three of me I believe and also the photos of the masquerade from fansview has a couple of the costume. If you can't find them i can try and find them a bit later once I finish ripping some DVD's for my AMV

But yeah, I did Reiji and my roomate did Bancho. Also there was a group for Gatekeepers 21 which consited of a Reiji, a really really good Miu and an Ayane.

Well, if you do find yourself in the city, save yourself the trouble of visiting Memorial Park Cemetery in Skokie, IL. Booooooring.

I mean, seriously, there isn't a single angry or displaced spirit there. Whenever I'm there late at night, I'm absolutely the scariest thing there. It's utterly b... wait wait wait wait...

*re-reads thread more carefully*

"...for a photoshoot."

Er... Whoops! I forgot, I'm the only one I know who willingly triest to get evil spirits to haunt him. My bad!

Well, if anyone gets cursed or haunted, lemme know! If someone wantes me to curse and haunt them, also, let me know!

P.S. be wary at Photoshoots, where cosplayers have prop weapons. As some genius cosplayers in Florida found out (the hard way), cops don't appreciate having prop guns pointed at civillians or other officers. Duh, right?

Here are the pictures I have found of the Reiji costume. Too bad none of them were close enough to get a shot of the red contacts since I was really going for details. I was just grateful the glasses I kinda sorta had to build for him actually stayed together for the most part through the con.

Only sad thing was the one where I was posing there was the wrong side so the embroidery didn't show.

And it is nice to know that I am not the only one who thinks Reiji Kageyama is one of the really fun villains.

My own original character, Minushi Monarch, from my own original manga! Half unicorn, half elf. I am very proud of this costume!! Kinda hard to go wrong with your own character but I almost forgot to make ears for her. Ironically, I lost an ear while glomping BitterBeing for his Pocky! ;)

You can see the actual Minushi character if you care to see the drawing and/or compare her to the costume.

Erika here.

Thanks, Ryan. Angel was a shitload of fun. I'd been doing so much "cute" cosplay lately that it'd been getting to me, so I did a bunch of sexy costumes. And while I kept the actual cosplay photos 'clean' by not flipping any cameras off [altho' there was that dumb shit who decided a secret picture of my ass was a smart idea...many birds flew....], the attitude stayed with me the entire weekend.
"Erika, Rinoa's not supposed to kick a fanboy in the nadgers."

Hey, if you're headed to A-Kon, feel free to say hi. I felt a little bad about breaking off conversations with people in the middle to handle a customer.
Now I've got to finish off this bloody Chii commission [fifth one in as many months]. *cusses*

Oh no, don't worry about it. I remember the booth days, I couldn't even handle it! It's amazing that you can do the booth and get around during the convention.

I applaud you on your bird-flippingness at the secret-ass picture. I guess it wasn't a secret then. I'm always on the lookout for the "Specially framed" pictures when me and barb are cosplaying. You know, the ones where the lens is just strangely a few inches too low?

I would like to go to A-kon, but we're far too busy at limebarb.com to even think about leaving the studio for another month or so. Have fun on my behalf, and partake in many secret-ass pictures!

Friday I was Rabi~en~Rose in pretty pink dress. Every one kept asking me where my dice were and I had to explain to every one that in this dress she didn't have dice. That got old after a bit so I told every one who asked that I lost them gambling.
Saturday I was Miho from MegaTokyo. I was sad cuz no one recognized me and than my costume decided it wanted to fall apart so I literally became broken Miho.
