has anyone ever done this? for those people who dont know what it is... it was a cartoon on nickelodeon for awhile then canceled because the guy who created it, jhonen vasquez (he made the comics jthm and squee and i feel sick... and that stuff), wanted to do stuff that they couldnt air. so bascially thats it. i actually had someone hand make me a costume just for halloween. it was gir (in the doggy suit), obviously, from invader zim. has anyone cosplayed this before or plan to? <3

I've seen doggy GIR's done before. I'm sorry I can't give any websites or pictures.

I've thought about making PooPDawg :bigtu: when I have plenty of money for it. Perhaps I'll make a can of Poop too.

I'm still so bitter that they cancelled it, I heard it was because he wanted to make one big episode based on a fart joke. Nikelodeon said no.. Nickelodeon who showed Ren and Stimpy having several episodes about Stimpy's fart coming to life!!! :sulk:

Anyway, good luck on GIR!! I suggest you give him a piggy or a Crazy Taco hat.

oh really? i've never seen it before. hah. oh well. i did mine first bitches!

yeah that'd be awesome. what conventions are you cosplayng at? it'd be cool to see another zim character to take pixs w/ :) but i actually knew the creator. he told me exactly what i posted. i dont remember him mentioning a 'fart episode' but ill definatly ask if he's ever online again or i see him somewhere again. but i liked that episode of ren and stimpy <333

haha. i need no luck as of the gir costume, the costumes done. its been done actually. i had a piggy that doubled as a bag for my halloween candy... but since for all my costumes, i always end up carring stuff around, not to mention my excessive shopping so i have a million bags of stuff to carry. i litterally cant go to a con w/out spending between $1,000 - $10,000. hah. im pathetic. :lost:

yeah. thats probably the best gir and membrain i've seen. the other girs heads look wrong if there in a full head thing, if its in a hoodie, it didnt look that great. my opinion. thats the only prof. membrain ive seen and its good. really good. the dib isnt that great though.

ps- your username... isnt that from animal crossing?

I'm going to AnimeNEXT in June, East Coaster here so unfortunately I don't think we'd run into each other anytime soon =/ but I'd love to see pics of your GIR! My Zim stuff probably won't be until next year unfortunately (so broke).

There was an Invader Zim group that got together via forums for Acen! Check us out! I'm Miss Bitters, there's Rikki Simmons (voice of Gir) and his wife, Tak's Cat, Tak, and Dib. *attempts to link* err...well, it will be on my member gallery soon enough. I love Invader Zim though!

Rikki's been doin a lot of cool stuff lately. He and his wife are great artists, here's his site:

thats what i did. i made a hoodie cause i cant wear a mascot one... cause 1) i dont know how to make one and i dont know anyone who does. 2) how the hell do you see in there? 3) you'd get super hot. but yeah. i wanted to many the nny shirt that says 'this is my back' hahaha<3

"Animal... crossing?" Can't say that it is. Can't say that I'm at all familiar with this crossing of animals either. It's just the handle I've maintained across numerous forums for numerous groups over the years.. Just think looking-glass world and consider the name as Mr. Retsej, not just MrRetsej.

My boyfriend and I dressed as Dib and Gir for AnimeUSA 2004. It figures, when we were out of costume, that's when we ran into the Zim. -_-;

Everyone kept asking him (my Dib) if he was either A.) Nny from JTHM or B.) Jhonen Vasquez. I think it would be seriously creepy if he had been cosplaying a living, breathing human being like Jhonen. That's like someone cosplaying J.K. Rowling, or Fred Gallagher or something.

I'm gonna do dib, I just don't know when. I already have the costume finished

haha. cept jhonen gets more credit cause his comic's are fucking awesome. the other two i believe are authors (i dont exactly read books for fun so im not quite positive) but yeah. comics > books. the end.

08-08-2005, 11:24 PM
yeah i'm gona have to agree with Firestar ^^;; Jhonen gets an exception becuz he's really kool and a comic genius [well to me anyway xD] plus he make autobiography comics that stars himself n he's in a few episode in Invader Zim so it seems that he has made a cartoon version of himself that people could cosplay from ^_^

haha oh yeah i kinda forgot about that. in fillerbunny he does have himself as a comic character. but he's not johnny (from jthm). how do i know? i asked him myself. but still, if someone ever cosplay's him, imma laugh my ass off.

aww lucky butt!i bet you met him at Comic con..? nehh iwas suppose to go meet him there but well let's just say things did go according to plan T^T but cosplay as Jhonen...hmm maybe i should...XD JK! lol if someone did cosplay as Jhonen i probably wouldn't be able to recognize it ^^;;

haha yeah. he's actually one of my friends cousins, so i get to talk to him occationally, but i never got to meet him before that. yeah you needed a ticket or something. i didnt have one either but i told them my story and they let me meet him anyways. haha. but yeah, people have even cosplayed jthm and i havent noticed it was supposed to be nny. so if its hard to tell that that was nny, then it's probably really hard to tell if theres a jhonen cosplay. oh geeze that'd be creepy almost. what if he saw you walking around like that, dressed like him, i mean i wonder what he'd think. haha.

I've decided I'm going to cosplay as my idea of a human disguise for INVADER TENN for a friend's costume party this July:toothy:, and I've discovered the trick when deciding to cosplay ANYTHING done by Mr. Vasquez; remember that in OUR universe, ZiM, GiR, Dib, Gaz, etc. wouldn't be so BLOCKY. Make the costume for IZ the same way you would for Death Note or Sailor Moon; REALISTIC. That right there can really make or break a ZiM, Dib, or Gaz cosplayer. The only TRULY acceptable reason to have a cardboard box on your head, in my opinion, is when you are cosplaying as GiR, or even SKOODGE!


Hope this helps!:angel:

Slowly making myself a Tak (human disguise) cosplay for InvaderCon next year! So freakin' happy the show is getting it's own con! Now if I could just motivate myself to make the darn shirt I'll be all set by then! I had a bear of a time finding the right shades of pink and grey for the sleeves. The purple I got isn't the best, but it was the closest thing in strech fabric I could find -crosses fingers this cosplay won't suck-

Those goggles are so ridiculously perfect! It'd be awesome to see the full costume when your done

I made a gir hoodie like last november or something but I unfortunately have not really gotten any pictures of it. Just the one in my icon but it looks pretty bad and pointy there. It's not that pointy when I wear it though! o.e Maybe I'll get a photoshoot done sometime :<i></i>/

To risk resurrecting an old thread, is anyone else excited to see Zim and GIR at Dragon*Con this year? I've seen Rikki (GIR) at Ohayocon and he is so awesome. It makes me wish I could afford and have time to do my GIR for D*C. He's just going to have to wait for Ohayocon.

An Invader Zim thread! -shiny eyes-

Sadly I can't find anyone who cosplays this at all. I cosplay as Mr Dwicky. Never worn it to a convention but planning to this October. Sadly I have no friends who cosplay it so I doubt I'll even be recognized.

Wish I lived in America.

Good luck with the costume! I hope you get recognized!



I've got my G.I.R. robot gijinka finished. Yay! I'm thinking of making another set of lenses that are simply tinted so I can actually wear them the whole time.
Now that I finished that one, I realized for less than $20 I can get my dog disguise gijinka done too. I've got everything but the hoodie and black dye for the sleeves. But I'm starting to think if I can find a white and a black hoodie in the same style and simply switch the sleeves, it'll save me a lot of time and work. Maybe I'll have it done for Ohayocon next year.

OOH AN INVADER ZIM THREAD!! I'm going to attempt to cosplay ZIM for Halloween this year...we'll see if that goes over well at all...
I hope the show isn't so outdated that nobody will recognize me now...
I just found out about it a couple of months ago and now I'm hopelessly obsessed...
:3 go figure...
I wanna stand on top of the escalator at the mall in this costume and glare at everybody.
Hopefully I'll have at least Dib and GIR with me...possibly The Tallest! It should be totally fun even if my costume does look like fail lol

Meeting Richard Horvitz dressed as Zim was one of the best days of my life. Meeting Jhonen was pretty exciting too. My friends and I recently did a group.

Me as "disguised "Zim: http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/353/a/9/obey_the_fist_by_os_cordis-d4jjkxk.jpg
I had a second outfit that day that had the full red contacts and no hair.

We went for the realistic look, it was received well. This was one of the most uncomfortable cosplays I've ever done - full contact lenses that made me cry (literally), dental veneers, bald cap covering my ears, chest binder. It's not one I plan on doing again too soon unfortunately.
