Hi all!

I'm currently planning out my costumes for Otakon and I was wondering if anyone else is planning to do a non-Anime/manga/whatever costume and what it is... you can check my costume list for mine...

I did last time I went - but this time I am dragging along so many anime ones probably won't have the time to wear anything else (unless you count KH Snow White).

My two costumes (Roy from SSBM and Bahamut from FF10) are both from games. I haven't made one that is actually from an anime yet... ;) Oh well!

Mine will be from King of Fighters: going as Kula Diamond. No anime cosplay for me this year. Video game all the way.

I've a Suikoden group on Saturday, and I'll be part of the massive Xenogears group on Friday night.

Most of mine are video games, tentatively Suikoden, Xenogears, maybe .hack or Lunar. I was planning on having one anime costume (from Sailor Moon) but I don't know if I really want to cut my bangs for it since I need those bangs for Yuber...

And there is a Suikoden group on Saturday? Which Suiko?

Wow, I just did a search and realised I am supposedly organising a Suikoden II group at Otakon... O_O is it the same? A different one? I'm completely confused!

Tenatively, those involved in the Princess Wars are going to do a cosplay shot, just for fun. But that will be on Sunday when no one is really around.

Different group!*nods* We planned on going as Suikoden 1 and 2 kids back in September or so. It's a small group, too, only Sylvinia, Tengaar, Hix, Elza or Valeria, and Flik, with possibly 2 other people joining in. I'd love to join in your Suikoden 2 group for a photo if possible, though.

This seems to be the year of big game inspired groups: Xenogears/Xenosaga, Suikoden, Chrono Cross *eyes swirl*

*laughs* I don't have a group! I completely forgot about it! Although I had a flashback of agreeing to rewear Seed to match Sami's Culgan. So if you need a pair of villains we could meet up with your group.

(Let me add: Fliiiiiiiiiiiiiik!)

My big headache-inducing Suikoden group is for AX. ^__^

> Suikoden

Did you see the size of the AX one? FIFTY. ><
I'm going insane trying to keep track of things.

> Chrono Cross *eyes swirl*

I remember wanting to join that way back when and deciding against it... I still want to see it though as I love Chrono Cross!

And don't forget Kingdom Hearts!

I'm still up in the air about a anime costume. But the bulk of my stuff for this year is video game costumes (Just like the last 4 years...LOL!).

My friend Amanda and I are going as Kabuki and Snapdragon from David Mack's comic, Kabuki. There's another thread about it in Otakon, more people are joining in :)

Why don't we just have a "Suikoden" Group Shot? Doesn't matter which game you're from. Just bring your costume.

As it stands, I'm doing Lenne from Final Fantasy X-2. I'm gonna end up doing a LOT more game costumes than anime costumes ^^

Me too. Some of the video game characters people are just too cool to pass up the chance to cosplay one of them!

A group of friends and i might go as Otakon Bunny Grils....Oo;;

If I have time I might cosplay as one of my original characters. ..Though, he wears a thick coat with fur on it, so...I don't know if that would be a wise thing to wear to Otakon...

I usually cosplay anime/manga but I saw a couple people there in totally random stuff... like there was this one girl in the artists room with a Harry Potter costume.... it was neato....

it's all game characters this time around, heck all from the same series! though next year, I'd love to show my shoujo side and do something FY or CLAMP or, if I feel really bold *coughSELF-CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO WEAR SOMETHING SHOWING MORE SKIN THAN A T-SHIRT AND PANTScough*, one of the Witches 5 from SMS... mmm, shoujo goodness...

Except one, maybe two if two allows it, all my costumes are game or novel based.

Belle for Kingdom Hearts, Beatrix for Final Fantasy IX and a rendition of Blaise Zabini for a small Harry Potter group Friday morning.

Cassidy (Pokemon!) is probably the only anime costume in the running, but then again, Pokemon is a video game too. ^^; So I guess that goes wherever.

My other costume could be considered anime or manga. ^_^

Come to think of it, I don't think I will have ANY anime costumes for this convention...unless you count Chun Li, hey it was a game & anime so =P So many video game groups!

Along with Chun Li, I'll be bringing Wallmarket Cloud of FF7, Kiros of FF8, and Tolone of Xenogears

i'm probably going to be bringing 5 THOUSAND (umm..) costumes to Otakon since the different cons i was planning on going to seem to be falling by the wayside... but strangely enough NON of them are from any anime. game all the way, except for one manga costume.

i'm *bringing*
Vivi from Venus and Braves
Samus from Metroid Prime
a chicky from Card of Destiny
probably an Abarenbou Princess costume
(mayyybe a DoA-BV costume... HA!)

*passes out*

Now that I think about it... Most of my costumes are game/comic based this year...except for my Allen costume... Let's see Rose (street fighter)Butoh (kabuki) Echidna (bouncer) magical drama queen roxy ( of the same name).... Damn...so much work to do!

don't know if this has been mentioned, but this reminds me of a Commander I met at Katsucon. Dude was in a TOS Trek command uniform, commander rank. (that'd be red shirt with two golden rings around each wrist)

I'm going as Go-go from Kill Bill. It's technically not an anime, but it does have a very nice sequence, though.

Otakon is so exciting. ^_^ 12 days!

I'm going as a Crazy 88 from Kill Bill, Barrett Wallace From FF7, Hiroki Sugimura from Battle Royale and 2 original costumes (Classic japanese, and Elegant gothic Aristocrat)

Aaaaaah! No countdowns! *tears* They only make me panic-y! LOL! Soo, I almost forgot about this thread, but it looks like there are going to be a LOT of awesome costumes floating about. ^^ (Why am I not surprised?)

I've got a couple of Anime costumes going, but my big costume from the weekend is one of T.M. Revolution's... The big white one with the butt fluffies... ^^ Anyway, I hope to see some of you there! (I'll most DEFINITELY be hanging around the Xeno group... heh heh... Teh Chu is my best. ^^ <--*all proud*

Anyway, off to sew some more! See you all in a couple of weeks! :heart:
