View Full Version : The Great Cosplay Exchange

This is something that I have been thinking about for a while. Since Acen is my "hometown" con, it seemed appropriate to suggest it here, especially since it is just large enough to have a lot of people, but still small enough that you can recognise them.

ANYHOW...to the topic.
The Great cosplay exchange.

A place where you can get together and look at other people's costumes, be constructive on commenting about them...find someone thats about your size and... *gasp* try trading cosplays with them for a little while.

I think it'd be a lot of fun, and a good way to see the con from a completely different perspective. Now yes, there are a lot of logistics and things that could go wrong, but...
maybe if we keep it small at first and just try it out, we could all learn a lot about what its like to be in someone else's shoes.

I've thought about something like this cuz I've got to many costumes to wear myself in one weeked.

you mean like a critique?

I think Saeru and I just got a high at Otakon cosplaying while watching -other- people use our other cosplays around us at the same time.

You know it's bad when one body & one costume is no longer enough to satisfy you!

Yui: Didn't we talk about this when we got stranded at Katsucon? Or was there some sort of lottery involved too, I'm blanking now... :)

I'm pretty sure the snowed in at Katsu idea was to make a new, super costume out of various pieces of everyone's regular costume...like a mega-cosplay!
Too bad everyone was poisoned, frozen or half-dead on Monday. It would have been fun.

Yeah, the Katsu idea was kind of a "costume melting pot"/cosplay contest. :3

But hey, I'd be up for this idea, not that I have anything real exciting to give to someone to wear, lol. (Yet, I'll work on it!)
