I've noticed a lot of KH2 cosplaying threads. It appears as though the Organization is a popular theme this year, anyone agree? It's a great costume, I can't wait to see other people's original versions of the organization coat for comparative purposes :D.

I'm trying to do a female Sora >xD

But KH2 in general seems really popular o.o

Aw, Ravenark, do ya have to ask? XD

Especially all those damned Order coats. I just wish that they had been as popular way back when I made my own thread about them (which had to be over a year ago, so it's most likely not worth looking for).

Ever since DD/ASAS came out, Riku and BHK/DWU/GEU (as he was known back then) have been popular ones to cosplay, but now that KH2 is out, with the best reference potential cosplayers of O.XIII can get their hands on, it makes sense that a lot of topics are popping up.

I just wish that they weren't all pretty much exactly the same quesitons.

I'm still planning out the costume @.@;; I have a sketch, but I'm asking people's opinions on it, so I can change what should be changed, so that it will hopefully turn out well =D

This is only normal. Square-Enix seems to create games fully appealing to the cosplayer (hell, we have a whole forum dedicated to Final Fantasy cosplay), and KHII is no different. It's just what's hot right now.

Sorra
04-23-2006, 04:51 PM
It's kinda popular but since the costumes are somewhat complex and have lots of nitpicky details it will never hit the level of FMA, Bleach or Naruto.

But that's just my observation.

(I'm cosplaying Sora BTW)

Runi-Chan
04-23-2006, 08:46 PM
Oh, yeah, it is; And after waiting for so long, it doesn't surprise me. It's nice to see people cosplaying the Organization and lesser cosplayed characters like Roxas and Namine.
I think Square can claim two big cosplay trends this year, video game wise (since they do own FMA); Advent Children and Kingdom Hearts II.

I jsut got back from MTAC and saw plenty of KH2 characters. a few soras, kairi, and waaaaay too many keyblades floating around. Keyblades seem to be the new "naruto headband" to have at conventions. XD

Ravenark
04-24-2006, 04:18 PM
heh. I'm just hoping not to see too many Organization people...besides the group I'm going with doing a ton of them :D

Kuro Yue
04-24-2006, 07:16 PM
Judging by all these threads, there're going to be LOTS of Org. members all over the place.

I'm surprised that there aren't a crapload of KH2Rikus, though. I honestly thought that there would be a lot more than I've found.

Yay! I'm a minority!

SecretGeisha
04-26-2006, 06:48 PM
i admit, i was on the bandwagon of "OMG MUST COSPLAY!" as soon as i saw the new outfits.

i am guilty, Mukino Kuneka, i have made a kh2 riku. minoritys forever! XD atually, we made a group for the release of the game at the ebgames at a nearby mall. *nerd*

so yes, kh2 group this year at jacon. and i did make both of rikus outfits for the stinkin thing. but theyre so much fun, how could you not?

Seriphina
04-27-2006, 09:55 PM
oh i'm sure there'll be TONS of KH2 people about. soras, roxas's and organization members, along with rikus and kairis and probably some namines will all be about.

it'll be intresting to see the range of different costumes that comes out of this.

Kingdom Hearts has some awesome costumes hands down. I'v actually done about 3 KH cosplays and I have about 5 in my closet. They are fun to make and fun to wear. I basically tried out being different characters from the games until I found one I really waned to stay with. I had A lot of fun being Leon, but I may wait until I'm a bit older. So for now, I'm having a blast being Riku. To anybody who KH cosplays, I love you all and go out there and have fun!!!

aznbassplayer
04-27-2006, 10:18 PM
*looks at avy* yea im pretty much in love with kh2, lol. kh2 and kh cosplay are popular, but it would totally suk if it gets to the point where its cosplayed as much as bleach, naruto, and fma. dat's just my opinion.

Scortia
05-04-2006, 10:07 PM
Quite honestly... when it comes to KH2 cosplays, I think the Organization is undercosplayed compared to Sora, Roxas, and Kairi ... and Riku. Heck I wager half of the people wearing an Organization jacket will be Deep Dive Riku. :P

I know at A-kon there's a total lack of Organization cosplays that'll be there and most of them will be my own group. I want to see some mega-huge Organization weapon love! >P

And of course, it's all a question of how many people in the Organization jackets bothered to get pleather or some other nice fabric and to match the seams of the jacket. :P

Sajomir
05-05-2006, 01:57 AM
Gotta say, I fell in love with Axel's character design the second I saw Tetsya Nomura's artwork of him. He's the one character who was most recognizeable to me out of all the early screenshots and previews. Sure, Roxas is cool and it was awesome to see Sora and Riku again, but somethin about the "tall dark" look combined with such a great hair design and light facial makeup just kicks *ss.

Aside from him and Riku, though, none of the Organization XIII coat-wearers really stood out to me. (with the exception of that 6-lance guy and his fricking God-mode hax0rz >.>) (forgive the leet, please ^^)

Kuro Yue
05-05-2006, 11:52 AM
Scortia - I spent ages just studying reference pics and modifying my duster pattern to get those seams just right. Curses, perfectionism.

Although I have to admit that I'm one of the ones doing Blindfolded/DD Riku. XD I'm obsessive, I am.

Although I'd kill for an excellent Saix or Marluxia - or even Larxene - cosplay.

Scortia
05-05-2006, 12:43 PM
Mukino Kuneko: Hehehe, I know what you mean... I bought the Matrix pattern thinking "this'll be good enough" but then after dropping a load on fabric and all I decided to get all the seams right. Stupid seams. X-x

Hey, a good blindfolded Riku is an awesome thing to see... one not in a coat they bought from Hot Topic that is. :P

Yeah, I'd kill for an awesome Saix and Marluxia too (wee pink scythe!)...I may make a Saix wig just because I adore his hair and character... may wear it with my Axel coat... and be 'Axel-disguised-as-Saix' since Axel's coat is obviously very very different from Saix's. Darn Axel and his girly jacket. >P

I was wondering where i can find a good pair of leather gloves for my KH2 tifa outfit

natsukoarts
05-05-2006, 09:03 PM
what is kingdom hearts about, i know stuid question - but can anyone fill me in, cloud and tifa are in it, right?

big advent children fan, trying to decide if i wanna learn about kingdom hearts as well...

Solaria
05-05-2006, 09:15 PM
natsukoarts- Try looking at the KH and KH2 threads in the Video Games chat forum. This thread is meant merely for costume discussion, and there's a lot of great info in that section!

But as for your question, yes, they make cameos. They're not main characters though. Cloud appears in both KH1 (with an original, Vincent-inspired outfit) and KH2 (in his AC gear). Tifa only appears in KH2, also sporting her AC gear, minus the ribbon. Since you like AC, it's also worth mentioning that Aerith, Yuffie, and Cid are in it as well, along with a bunch of other FF characters. But yeah, try checking out the Video Game chat forum.

As for KH2 cosplay... I love the designs. I have a lot on my plate this year so I'm refraining from making an Organization coat as well (but they're so niiiiice... love the seamwork, oh do I love the seamwork), but I'm going to probably do KH2 Tifa at AX or ComicCon. The only real difference is the lack of ribbon and that her hair is tucked behind her left ear in KH2 anyway. :-P

I have to admit, I am very guilty of planning a KH2 Riku, ive been thinking on the idea since I saw Deepdive, Ive started work on Oblivion and its...well, in progress >.>, but to the topic, it is not very surprising to see such a flare of KH2 cosplay. The outfits were MADE to be cosplayed. One I havent seen much of is Chain of Memories, which is why (among other reasons) I am making my significant play Larxene XP. but yes, many MANY Organization XIII coats and keyblades walking around, but truly, who can blame them XD

I haven't yet gotten the chance to make an Organization outfit, it's the next thing on my list. My friend is cosplaying as an Organization XIII member....still haven't gotten to see the costume yet. She got major help from her grandma...dang I wish I had a grandma that was that cool! Anyway, KH and KH2 are really popular so ofcourse their characters are going to be cosplayed a lot.

mu empire= OMIGOD!!! I LOVE ZEXY! He is my favorite ^.^
He really needs more people to cosplay him. I just looked at your pics and you look awesome!!!!! Great job!

Twilight- heh, I wish I had anyone in my family that cool, I seem to be the "different from everyone in my gene pool" sheep. Anyway, yes, Zexion is smexy, I love Axel and Larxene as well ((mmm daggers ^_^)). Maybe I should cosplay Zexy since there are none too many and I wouldnt have to worry about making a weapon. That and the fact that he is very very cool...yes, cool, thats the word >.>

05-21-2006, 01:21 AM
I was surprised. It seems that KH2 is popular cosplay. But not too many sora. ANd a few of the sora's aren;t his regular outfit.

considebalt
05-21-2006, 03:06 PM
well, his regular outfit is uninventive really, Ive seen that a wee bit too much to tell you the truth, but its not very surprising since he IS the protagonist of this wonderful tale.

05-29-2006, 01:25 AM
Yay! Like my 2nd or 3rd post on this place.

Had to jump in here. I'm dyin' to get to my next convention so I can cosplay KH2. I'm just havin' trouble on who I want to cosplay as. I took the cheap way out (forgive me D: ) and bought myself an Organization XIII coat on ebay, so I'm definately taking that route. I've been thinkin' of Larxene since she is under cosplayed...the only problem is her hair. Gravity defying hair confuses me so! I'm definately going with a wig though.

Now I'd love to see someone cosplay as the characters from the KH2 secret ending.

I'd love to cosplay one of the Organization members. Axel, Demyx, or Saix.. XD I dunno yet. I'll probably get my friend to make the coat. *lazy too*

I literally just started playing the game two days ago and already sort of want to cosplay it, though I don't know who. An Organization member would be awesome, but I have very limited sewing skills, not to mention funds. ^_^*

(Man, Marluxia and his scythe would be awesome. And then find a way to randomly toss petals at people... I literally had to pause Chain of Memories so I could stop laughing the first time he attacked me with his Pink Petals of Death.)

Ravenark
05-30-2006, 06:55 PM
So many people are doing Kh2 and even more Organization members. It's a cool theme and extremely popular this year, but I have to say that I've seen even more Naruto and Bleach this year than anything else.

considebalt
05-30-2006, 09:54 PM
Well, Naruto and Bleach are reaching Inuyasha fandom *shudders*, but Doggeh: I love your suggestion, however OMG the difficulty of that costume, atleast a good one. (anyone know how to blacksmith? XP.) I definitely want to play as Zexion *Ive been changing my mind ALOT), I have a thing for masterminds.

Trir
06-01-2006, 03:41 PM
Heh, do see alot of Organization XIII members, but those coats as well as the characters look awesome.

Im gonna be making an atempt of making my own coat. I thought about ordering one, but saving that case I fall to far behind in making the thing.
Also going as Luxord. Feel I pull of the look and so far I dont see to much about him being cosplayed. Need to find a good picture of a sora card to use as a referance in making prop to carry around, lol.

Please tell me you're being sarcastic. You didn't really need to ask if KH2 is popular among cosplayers right now, did you? That's like... asking if fast food is popular among Americans. ^_~

My group decided on Organization XIII so, it looks like I'll be another Organization cosplayer. But I so far can't decide between Marluxia, Zexion, and Roxas. Right now I'm leaning towards Roxas but making oathkeeper/oblivion seems daunting. I really have no clue which one I'm choosing. One thing I'm keeping in mind is how much I'd get glomped depending on which one I choose (Marluxia the least, methinks).

Do any of you think it would be a good idea to make candy paopu fruits to bring with us?

KH2 cosplay is majorly awesome this year. It's pretty crazy too, considering the KH2 cos's are considerably more complex than the KH1 cos's. I've seen so many good Sora's, it's making me fangirl in my sleep =D

The KH2 Kairi's could improve a bit tho...I've seen a bunch that aren't that great. I'm hoping to do my own Femme Sora eventually and a Kairi of some sort. I apparently have the perfect fabric for Kairi's KH1 skirt...perfect color according to the opening in KH2...

YAY OBSESSION!!!!

Being a KH2 fan myself, some of those outfits are really nice. Aerith's KH2 outfit is so pretty.. I'd love to make one.. but just to wear around.
My main KH/KH2 cosplay would be Donald. I love Sora n'all, but I'm a Disney girl first ^^ My sister and I want to eventually try to make all of Goofy and Donald's outfits. We've already done their regular outfits, and the next one we may try would be.. Space Paranoid! So we can light up the con. :rockon:
I'd also love to do Steamboat Willie!Donald and Goofy.. that would be fun.

Yeah. I wish the Organization Coats were just as popular back when I made mine (From DD/ASAS/Final Mix itself)... But they're still the most popular, none-the-less...

Hmm, maybe I should bust out my cruddy Organization coat again just to fit in with the new KH2 cosplayers.

I've made quite a few coat commissions and a small handful of wigs. I absolutely love making these coat, but perfecting the pattern has been quite a task. Im making an Axel, a Riku, a Kairi, and Pixie Rikku for myself, a Xigbar and Auron for my bf, and a Twilight Town Roxas and Org. coat for a friend. Im tempted to make Marluxia or Saix for me later on, just because I love their weapons. This has been quite a KH cosplay year for me. ^.^

There were so many KH2/KH cosplayers this year at AX it was POSITIVELY ridiculous. I was one of them, and I gotta say it was shocking to see how many people turned out.

Normally, this kind of thing would excite me, seeing new faces getting into my favorite Fandom, but... the photoshoot was so crazy I wanted to throw a shoe at someone. There was literally no room for people to walk through the giant crowd of cosplayers and photographers. It was insane.

KHII is CRAZY popular this year, I've seen so many Roxii (Plural of Roxas) I won't have to play the game again for a long time! There were a ton at Anime Next, and we got together all sorts of just random photoshoots (Even if I was from the first game) just because a few of us were talking and people walked by and started snapping pictures. It was hard to just get through the convention, I could only imagine what AX was like. ::shudders::

Organization XIII... brought to you by the letter 'X'

Aaaanyway, I'm working on Saix. ^^
I'm one of those people who refuses to believe that the coats are made of and type of leather/faux leather, so I'm going with a heavy knit fabric that I found in the special occations section, the type they make suits out of. And then lining it, and in stead of actually putting in the seams I'm just stitching over those areas, since my friend's mom is doing all the actual SEWING(she doesnt feel like modifying the pattern that much), and I'm making weapons and wigs for most of our cosplay group.

Hehe, so far we have in our group~
Xemnas
Xigbar
(maybe) Xaldin
Vexen
Lexaeus
Zexion
Saix
Axel
Demyx
Roxas

Riku
and Sora

And possibly a moogle, just for fun. ^^
And maybe an Atlantica Sora

Guilty! Though I'm going as a less often seen character, Demyx. Building that sitar is turning out CRAZY, but I hope I can pull it off.

Besides, what's better than cosplaying a character where I can run through a crowd screaming "Run! Run away!" and it's in character to do so? I can't wait to debute the costume at NDK!
