Hrm. I've aseen a lot of variations done before. Like, a lot. Would I be able to pass off a black Mai costume(i don't think I've ever seen any illustrated, "official pics" of her with an outfit like this) and still be recognized as her?

ara, I know Kitty did a black Mai (can't remember what gallery it was in though....) it was black with red lining. I think the costume is recognizable enough that no matter what color you do, people will know its Mai

You'd totally be recognized! Mai is Mai, regardless of the color. ^^ I've seen two or three black Mais as it is. Soon Mai will have been done in every color of the rainbow!

I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to see an ultra-violet Mai! ;)

I do believe Mai has a variation from KOF 97 that's black with yellow.. As long as it's still her design, you'll be recognized -- she's a fighting game character! Colors change with those all the time. :P
I've done red, blue, violet, and pink Mais so far. XD The pink one was a different style, but same character. Go for it! ^___^

Kitty's "black" Mai costume, is her own original design, so if anyone were to try to cosplay that, it would be totally stealing. Just thought I'd let the masses know.

wow... when your sig is 10X bigger than your posts... thats when I should shut up and let the mods say something ^^;

ara, is it too big? ::::bows apologetically::: sorry 'bout that, but its just so hard to only quote a little of Monty Python

it's not too big, her sig is competing with mine. If I get lots of complaints about Alaria's sig.. I'll ask her to change it.. but until then I think it's funny ^_^

I was just stating that Kitty's black my is *her* black mai, and not just any. So that particular "black" mai is her own creation and should not be copied.

I think most of the alternate costumes for Mai have been done already. You may want to try making the long robe that Mai has in her intro.

What I'd really wanna see is the same alternate colors, except for the rest of the KOF women. How about a red Shermie? Or a pink Leona? Or a gray "Blue" Mary? Oh heck, how about Angel? I have not yet seen one cosplayer outside of Japan do Angel yet... :P

Well what con are you going to be at next Iori? I love all of my Mai outfits (all 4 of them) But I have about 3 other Snk gals I am going to do cause I love them sooo much.

Michi

I don't think that Alaria meant Kitty's black Mai's /design/, just the colors themselves... I mean, if someone else did a black Mai with red edging, it wouldn't be stealing. o_o

True, most of Mai's colors have been done, but all her designs haven't. :P

I've got plans for... a different Blue Mary design (as in not her KOF design) for Fanime, Shermie's KOF 2K striker design for whenever I get the fabric I want ^^;;.. and many other ideas for less popular/seen SNK cosplay. :D
I'd do Angel if I didn't have so many other ideas first. Her outfit's crazy. x_x

::::nods::: thanx Michi, u reworded me perfectly ^__^
I remember seeing this picture in a SNK artbook of a witch character with a large witch hat and HUGE pants. She looked like she'd be alot of fun to do, but I have no idea what the game is or the name of the character

Hey Kitty, ^^ I dunno if you got my random message! But I still think you would make a GREAT Christie Monteiro from Tekken 4!!! I think you two resemble each other >< Her outfit is kinda scandalous... >< But Just a thought ^^ Here's just some pics:

I have a K9999 costume all prepared for Japan Expo. I'm just counting down the days...

Non-KOF Blue Mary? Are you going to have her green jacket with the 8-ball on the back? That'd be cool. :D

A witch character...? Was her outfit light purple and her hair orange-red? Are you sure it wasn't a Capcom artbook? You probably mean Tessa/Tabasa from Warzard/Red Earth or Pocket Fighter. If it was an SNK artbook, maybe they did some crossover thing or something (like they always do)...

Oh hey R: I got your pm I sorry kitty didnt reply back but I love Chritie's moves and style in the game but the outfits! OH MAN THEY HURT!

That's right: it's Tabasa and I remember her in the Capcom artbook.

I was thinking of doing Kim Dong Hwan or Freeman next year maybe at Otakon. It's still within the SNK universe although not from KOF..least I don't think so since I haven't seen the KOF games past 2000
