View Full Version : A costume that can't really be called a costume. . . .

I am getting a car and making it look like a car in Initial D. I actually have two cars I'm gonna convert into Initial D cars. I have an American Version Trueno, and I'm gonna get an American version S-13 soon. I was gonna bring it up to Otakon next year and tell people I'm from Initial D. However the character's clothes always change in the series and so I don't know if I can do this unless someone has noticed a unique pattern of clothes that the characters always end up wearing.

I wanted to take one of those little kid cars that you could actually drive and turn it into Sana's mom's house car, but those things are expensive and I'm still getting ready for the next con year X-X

LMAO! Sana's Mom's Car would be great! As for the Initial D thing... that's awesome, I hope you could get yourself a good outfit... if anything, just wear a sign ^_^

I was going to make those uniforms that they always wear at the gas station. That'd be a pretty recognisable costume. I wanted to make them for AX, but the last minute I ran out of time. Then they had the Initial D car there. I was so pissed that I hadn't made that costume.

hmm guess I can make the uniform, as for the car I have a choice of a Trueno or an S-13. . . .

instead of Sana's mom's car why not an initial D car? Yah those electric cars can be kinda pricey. Isn't it like 200 bucks or something? I wonder if they'll let you ride one of those things in the convention center.

Umm, you're gonna drive up a car to cosplay? You'll just be stuck standing near it all day, and thats just a way of being like HEY LOOK AT ME I AM COOL TAKE PICTURES. Where do you plan on putting this car, anyway? My friends and I did Initial D outfits and we just had the cute model cars... if people arent gonna recognize the outfit even with the mini car, they wont with a real car that is so much trouble to get there... Its normal clothes, I wouldnt even really consider it cosplay...

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with incorporating a car into your cosplay... sure, you won't be able to walk around and show it off, but people will probably still appreciate it. I wanted to dress up my sister's old car as the Big Whale this year to go with our FF4 costumes (we were just planning to drive around blasting annoying SNES music for a little while XD), but figuring out how to add enough lights to it ended up being a hassle. Then she went and wrecked that car, taking away my dream!
