There is a Bleach Convention coming up in April. Just for Bleach, nothing else.
I was thinking to myself,
"Self," cause I call myself, 'self', "We have short red hair now, we own a pair of hakama and have the leet skillz to make kimonos. We could SO do Ichigo!"
"BUT" says reality! "You have not the height! and thou arst chubby!"
"darn" says the self "I AM too chubby to be a lanky Japanese boy! Well, brain lets think of something we can do better..."
So Arella came up with a different idea. She 'suggested' that I should go as Kon.
... Kon.
Well, I am not too chubby for that, It would be a neat challange and to tell the truth, I kinda want to try it!
But I think I would look REALLY silly, as I would be a 6 or 7 foot tall Kon, depending on how tall the head has to be for the proportions to be right. Thats ALOT bigger than Kon is. Like some nightmare of Ichigo's made real.

I dont actually need any info on how to make Kon, but I really want to know, would you feel embarassed for the person walking around as Kon?
Or would you glomp it?

Alternativly I was thinking of making a Kon hoodie. Just cause it would be fun to have that brown spiked mane on a hoodie.

I know Ill get people saying, 'Just do it if you want to' but remember that I want to only if I wont look stupid doing it. Thats important to me. I have no lack of costumes I WANT to do. Getting opinions on this one helps me decide between it and many others.
Also, since Im not doing Ichigo cause Im not his body type, dont think I dont love me. Im just the type that will take stature into account when chosing which costume on the long list of 'WANTS' will turn into a 'MADE'.

I am making an Ichigo costume for my friend. Hurray for an actual Hakama. Wish I could find a good kimono pattern.

*_* Hoooodieeeee

Oh, and it's confirmed... Kon's dress is PINK!
I got the event card with a colored picture of Kon being dressed.

And they SKIPED the Kon Running Away from home chapter for the anime, can you believe it??? ARGH!!! >______<

EDIT (few hours later): OMG you can do Kon in the dress!!! for cosplay!!! (if for the hoodie, make a double hood, one for Kon's head, one for the pink bonnet)

NOOOO I am NOT doing Kon in the dress!!!
GAWD Im already totally hesitant about being a GIANT PLUSHIE! Are you trying to give me issues... dont answer that.
I will consider it only once my costume is done, and I may have to be drunk.
It IS a good idea on the hoodie, but then Id be wearing pink. Me + pink = T_T
Im almost set to start this, I just need to design the head and find the right material.

And if they skipped that then they are definatly going for only one season here, maybe theyll do OAVs but....

lolz my friend and I were discussing this cosplay too. We were considering making the face expression changable just for kicks. We might not get around to it. Anyways, one of our little interesting discussions was about running into a Bleach Cosplay Group. "Kon" would run away, and choose a victim [among our friends] and make them wear the costume. Then, we would get sum rope tie that person up and gag them. Then we toss that person smack dab in the middle of the Bleach group. ^___^

Sorry if that doesn't make sense since I tend to be incomprehensible at 4 in the morning, but I say go for it~!!

That would be hilarious! :thumbsup: I would love to see that done, lol.

But anyways, I think if you just did a full on Kon outfit, I think that I wouldn't be too bad. I just wouldn't walk downtown with it on. :thumbsup: And I'm totally positive that you'll get the Bleach fans girls to glomp you.
