View Full Version : Sakura Con Cosplay Ideas

02-26-2007, 01:38 AM
So, I will be working at Sakura Con and I haven't ever cosplay before. While I have wanted to I never know what to go as. So I am taking Ideas: The only issue is I am a larger guy. So if you know of any good characters that are more suited for a bigger frame let me know...

Neck: 19 1/2 inches
chest: ~52 inches
Waist ~48

I am like a cone or a square, I am about the same width from top to bottom :)


This should give you Idea what Anime characters I might look like, Good luck.

Hmm... Do you watch Bleach? You might have fun doing Zaraki Kenpachi (http://www.bleachexile.com/images/wallpapers/kenpachiWP%20(Brandon%20Rush).jpg). Not only is he a hilariously awesome character, he's on the larger side. There's also Sarutobi Asuma (http://sasukeuchiwa666.blog.jeuxvideo.com/images/mn/1123843306.jpg) from Naruto. I'm trying to think of someone from a less common anime, but I can't think of anyone off the top of my head. I'll edit this post if I remember any. ^_^

So your looking for an Anime character to cosplay as? What animes have you seen? We can narrow ideas down by choosing a character from an anime you like and enjoy...It's more fun then cosplaying a character you know little to nothing about ^_^

Have you seen FMA? The character Armstrong comes to mind. He's a bit
on the larger size and also has rather large muscles, lol. Maybe Mario from
Super Mario Bros. If I should come up with more idea's between now and
later on today or whenever, I'll be sure to post them on here. Good luck! ^-^

Those are some great Ideas, Also liked Sarutobi Asuma... Sarutobi Asuma and Armstrong outfits can be bought, which is a plus because I can't sew. Being a clasic video gamer, the idea of mario brings a warm fuzzy feeling to my heart.

To answer the other question. I watch a wide range of animes, but some of my favorite characters would be hard to pull off.

Keep the ideas coming... so far i think its between Sarutobi Asuma and armstrong. But feel free to get creative, my first idea was to come as Strong Bad. lol

Glad to had been able to help out a bit. Oh! I would love to see you pull off
someone from Homestar Runner. I've seen a Strong Bad before and a plushie
of The Cheat. But I've never seen anyone do one during all the times that I've
been to Sakuracon. I could see you do that :) I wish the creators of Homestar
Runner would come to an anime convention, have you been to Sakuracon before?

No this will be my first Con. I have wanted to go to anime/comic Cons before but I am always broke. The only reason I get to go to this one is I am working at a booth

02-27-2007, 12:01 PM
Very cool! ^-^ You'll really enjoy yourself at Sakuracon. This is my 3rd
time attending. I've been going to Sakuracon since 2005. Ooo you have
a booth? what type of things are you selling? I'll definitely have to drop by

02-28-2007, 11:35 AM
I will be working at a booth called "Anime Pavilion" I guess its been there at the last few Sakuracon so maybe you have heard of it..

02-28-2007, 07:27 PM
Actually no I haven't. What type of stuff will I be able to find at this booth
that would interest me? I will do my best to stop by your booth and say hi

03-01-2007, 12:04 AM
Well, I am not sure what we sell. I assume Anime... And i guess it all depends on what interest you, if we carry that... if its anime that interest you, I am sure we will have it, but if its knitting or shark diving, I dont think we will have that stuff, lol but you never know

03-01-2007, 10:53 AM
*laughs* Thanks! bytheway have you come up with a decision of what you
plan on cosplaying as yet? I still have to decide whether or not I plan to do
something on the back of my blouse or not. Anyway I'll be looking at a lot of
booths while at Sakuracon. Will you be in the Artist Alley or in the Dealer's Room?

03-01-2007, 08:12 PM
its now between Maes Hughes and Alex Louis Armstrong... my hair has grown out a lot since the picture so i could come it like hughs, I wear glasses, and I can shave a 5 o clock shadow.. but I think it would be fun to cut the curl thing into my have and grow a big stash... I am getting my outfit from http://www.qqcosplay.com/Costume.htm and there isnt a huge difference between the outfits so I can change my mind up into I cut my hair off, lol...

As for the booth I am not sure if I will be in the Dealer's Room or not, but that sounds like were we would be...

I hope to see you there...

I bought my outfit today so it should be here in time, I will eithe be hughes or armstrong. I am going to just let my hair and beard grow out and then I will decided for sure by the time lol.. maybe even Jean Havoc.... the outfits are all the same for the most part I can change them a little for either person.... sorry it took so long for me to answer you Usachan, I have been sick and I am signing for for my student teachering so I can finish school

Sorry to hear you've been sick, I hope I don't get sick during the con myself
I've been very healthy for 2 months now. Can't wait to see your costume ^-^

I'll probably find you somewhere in the dealer's room, I've been thinking of
trying to arrange a Cosplay.com gathering like Gaia Online has, however I
wasn't thinking much in the way of what to do except meet people. But I
would not mind idea's/suggestions. 30 more days and I'm SOO psyched now!
