View Full Version : Suikoden Cosplay at CNExpo 2006

03-24-2006, 09:36 PM
Hey folks, I think Edtel already mentioned this in the AN forums (relating to a showing at that convention), but we'd like to put together a CNExpo Suikoden cosplay group this year. Any of the characters in the series are allowed, including non-stars, so pick your favourite and come on out!

We're thinking the best time to hold this is Saturday, and we'd like to get a large photoshoot going sometime in the early afternoon across the street from the MTCC, in the park with the artificial 'mountains'.

So far we have (game instalment listed in brackets):

Nanami/Leona/Kasumi/Yoshino/Tengaar (not sure yet) - Mekou (tentative)
Unknown - Edtel (tentative)
Hix (II) - fox.boy
Flik (II) - JohnnytheMuse2
Jeane (IV) - rox_my_sox
Mathiu (II) - Mike B. (tentative)
Lazlo (IV) - KeeganTheFox
Undecided - lainey (tentative)
Viktor (II) - Myself
Leknaat (All) - SeekingRevenge
???? - Lainey

I also think Edtel and Mekou might want in on that, but I can't confirm for them. Anyhow, let's hear it if you're in and I'll add you to the list!

Arg I shake my fist at so many people giving me reasons to go to CNA. XD

I have so many things I'd like to make. >.< I might remake Nanami (since I LOVED being her, but the costume was largely rushed and I could never get the wig to curl properly. And besides, I'm working really hard to rennovate the prop. XD)

Other possible ideas are Leona, Kasumi, Lorelai or Yoshino, Tangaar (all SII...yes I'm a hardcore SII nerd. >.<)

Though my dream is still to remake Nanami so it's made to my own standard.

03-25-2006, 02:11 AM
Haha, I think Nanami would be a great choice. <3 Nanami. Yoshino too. ^^

I'm not sure I'm even going to be at CN this year. I'm on day shift, and right now, my lieu bank is at zero. If I can build up enough time to come Saturday, I'll be able to better say. But if I can come, and I finish my costume, then I will be there.

03-25-2006, 04:38 PM
Jeane:heart: ^_^ hawt hawt, I cant wait...though the top will be ...interesting to put together and...keep together... haha O_O;;;

03-25-2006, 06:26 PM
I'm with Edtel, I'm not actually sure I'll attend CN (Unless the Masq Staff needs some people to help out, which I will definitely do if they request it.)

But I'll probably be able to make out for the Saturday at least. Even if it's just for THIS photoshoot (which is across the street anyways, so they can't yell at me to pay. XD)

03-25-2006, 09:21 PM
Sounds good. Even if you guys come just for the photoshoot, that'd be awesome. ^^ Tell your friends!

fox.boy/Johnny (who doesn't know Johnny?!) is in too, but he's still picking out a character.

04-23-2006, 05:38 AM
I think Johnny would make a great Freed. Y or Tsai of the Divine Spear. In addition to this, we also have another friend of mine (Chuck/Keegan for those who know him) planning to go as Lazlo, the hero of the fourth game. On a side note, we need more Highlanders and strategists!

04-23-2006, 11:17 AM
I want to do Suikoden O_O But if I do I doubt it'll be a Saturday cosplay...maybe a Friday/Sunday cosplay...not sure O_O Or...next year!

I haven't even thought about CN yet.

04-23-2006, 04:11 PM

Chuck/Keegz here, and LAZLO IS MY MAN! GOGOGOGO! =3

05-10-2006, 12:20 PM
Was gonna say that we need more heroes, preferable a Tir and Riou (and perhaps a Jowy if it can be done)...anyone know anybody who'd be up for the role? I think it'd be incredibly cool to have the stars from their respective games "assembled" behind the heroes to create some awesome photos...

05-30-2006, 03:38 AM
All right, so from what I gleaned at AN, there's a nice sizeable Suiko community forming. I figure this is probably a good time to bring this thread back up. We're calling for ALL Suikoden cosplayers to come out on Saturday and join us for a big ol' photoshoot. Leave a message here if you and/or your friends are interested!

06-04-2006, 09:42 AM

is this for Friday or Saturday?

If for saturday, I'd have to say no, but I might do it for Friday ^_^ (still deciding!)

06-04-2006, 03:39 PM
The one I'm doing is called Meg right?

06-04-2006, 08:13 PM
I want to do Suikoden O_O But if I do I doubt it'll be a Saturday cosplay...maybe a Friday/Sunday cosplay...not sure O_O Or...next year!

well if you do a suikoden cosplay on sunday because you cant do it on saturday, I'll re-wear my jeane on sunday and we can take pictures ^_^

06-04-2006, 08:32 PM
I can do Leknaat from Suikoden IV for CN.

06-04-2006, 09:21 PM
I'm hoping I might be able to come after all! And I might, just MIGHT be finished Apple by then. I don't want to wear Hai Yo again for CN. If CN was a con where I had a hotel room, that would be different. But I'm not lugging around two costumes.

06-04-2006, 10:40 PM
I'm pretty sure I will go to CN and I have the perfect wig for Anabelle (Mayor of Muse!) and the costume is simple enough I'm sure I could complete it. Hopefully I won't look bad in it.

So count me in! =D

06-04-2006, 11:27 PM
Hurray! Apple and Anabelle/Edtel and Mekou, you both win for doing undercosplayed and loved characters...Kaja, yes...it's Meg-and she rocks!

06-05-2006, 04:41 PM
I love Suikoden! If I'm at CNA, I'll probably be Riku from Kingdom Hearts, but if there's a photoshoot, I'm definitely going to stop by!

One day I'll cosplay Tir. :3

06-09-2006, 08:53 PM
Okay so, do we want to do this Friday folks? I'm not opposed to that at all, as I usually have little to do besides the Masq on Fridays. 'sides, I do plan to wear Viktor in the masq, so that'd be convenient for me (and Lainey it seems). Anyone have issues?

06-09-2006, 09:00 PM
So issue for it on Friday. ^_^ Wait. Masq on Friday? o_O Don't you mean Saturday?

06-09-2006, 09:46 PM
well I cant really on friday cuz im in the sin city group and I HAVE TO get to that and the photoshoot which i dont think is in the con center.

and i think u mean the skit contest on friday not the masq right?

06-10-2006, 07:01 AM
I thought it was Saturday...ho hum...

06-11-2006, 09:15 AM
don't chose the day because of me please ^_^ Do it on whatever day...it's because when it comes to hall cosplay, it usually isn't 100% confirmed until close to the convention (Yup..sewing the MORNING OF the con lol).

IF i do suikoden (once again, I am undecisive), I will wear it on Friday. I don't mind wearing it myself...s'okie ^_^

Mind you, I won't decide on my hall cosplay until late july or early august LOL

It depends on if I can finish the guys' costumes too, and our sunday's cosplays

06-11-2006, 12:28 PM
Friday for me is iffy. If I can come, I still have to work on Friday, and I'd rather not have to go home for my stuff and come BACK downtown. Bringing it to work also is something I'm just not prepared to explain to my co-workers at this time.

Mind you, I'm really sick of my Apple costume and honestly, I'm not even sure I'm in the mood to finish it.

06-11-2006, 04:33 PM
Friday is good, but I am willing to go through the hassle of carrying around me Masq costume and getting changed into it later on Saturday if I must. ^_^ And then Friday can be for another costume.

Either way, Suikoden costumes will be awesome to see! =D The fan girl in me is happy.

06-11-2006, 05:03 PM
like I CAN do it friday.....but I have to go to the sin city photoshoot so depending on what time that is....as long as it doesn't overlap in times and such I'm good. I'm not going to be wearing my sin city costume(shellie) all day for any of the days, just for the photoshoot and such so friday technically could work for me......acctually come to think of it.....friday would probaly be more convenient then saturday for me, because of the masq and such....ya. up to you ^_^

06-11-2006, 07:20 PM
you guys are insane! one costume per day for me LOL

i just have some obligations to make matching costumes that my boyfriend Young Jae wanted me to make 1 year ago! but he's interested in suikoden too...so..ahhh!

06-11-2006, 07:46 PM
Suikoden is 1 of the BEST games EVER!! I love it SO much, no jokes at all!! ahhhh......I wanna do a Suikoden cosplay someday but for now they are much too hard XD I cant wait to see ya'll though!!! YAY!!!

06-11-2006, 11:17 PM
All right, so it seems that Saturday is overall that much more convenient. And sorry about the Masq mix-up. I'm used to the skit contest now, thus... Anyway, yes, it's on the Saturday. That'll work out fine. Sorry Lainey, but if you want, I can also do him on Friday so we can have a few extra people together. ^^

06-12-2006, 07:59 AM
We're planning on SuikodenV for the masquerade, so we'll have suiko.
Just not till later on saturday.

:O photoshoot is a must when ever you come over after CN sometime if we don't get pictures at CN.

06-14-2006, 04:03 PM
Omg! Sweet deal on the replies! Now I'm excited! We need more 4 though =3

06-18-2006, 10:02 AM
oki...so one person from D2R will be cosplaying suikoden on saturday :)

And I can't cosplay suikoden on Friday anymore (group hall cosplay confirmed >_<), and I'm not sure about Sunday anymore (I might dress down instead for comfyness!).

06-30-2006, 01:50 PM
bah! now I dont think i can wear jeane on saturday because my masq group is doing out masq costumes then. The only day I could probaly wear it is sunday. maybe friday, but i have the sin city photoshoot that day too, but im only wearing my sin city costume for the photoshoot. so ya...... I don't think i can be depended on for being at a photoshoot.....>_<;;

07-23-2006, 06:14 PM
We should totally do a group dinner dealie, so we can all be around a table like their big strategy meetings...

07-25-2006, 10:13 PM
Due to my moving, I have no time to finish Apple, so she will probably not be seen until AN 2007 (maybe). But I will try to be there to take pictures.

08-30-2006, 11:37 PM
Yay! I'm bumping the thread, but for good reason. Is this still happening? If so, when and where? I will take pictures ^_^
