View Full Version : Help!So many costume choices..so little time..x.x;

08-29-2002, 03:37 PM
I know you guy's get alot of these but I hope you won't get annoyed if I make one more thread in hope's of finally making my mind up on a costume choice ^^;
Lately I have been looking at everything you guy's have done and everytime I see a new page I want to do those costumes too! -sigh- so I was wondering if someone could help me narrow down the choices I have here or possibly suggest some new one's for a freshman with a cosplaying over-drive going on ~_~;

First off I guess I should describe myself since everyone seem's to ask what you look like first off..o.o;
I have shoulder length brown hair currently styled into a "Yuna" cut and stand at about 5'1 - 5'2 . Brown eyes,tan skin..err..I guess a pirotess sort of color..<.<; and I look more like a girl then a teenager.

My possible ideas were:Chii,Fish card captor sakura (with the little ribbons up the front..KAWAII!),Gluhen Aya,Cho hakkai,Riku,Pastha (queen angelique) and alot of others..x.x;..

oh yeah,I also happen to be an avid crossplayer fan and MAJOR bishounen fan! ^^; so costumes of the oposite sex are A ok!

I have taken sewing classes and have made Aya Fujimiya's manga coat (with a few errors..) as my first project as well as Omi's little jacket.So I have fair knowledge of sewing and have worked with difficult materials..though they werent very fun!

any help would be muchos appreciated!!

Well, you already have a good handle on what you can do, what your abilities are, and what you might be physically best suited to. Now... of the list you've got, what do you LIKE? Who would you be happy to be for a day? What would you be happiest/proudest to be seen wearing? (You'd probably be one of the first people to do the Gluhen WK if you wanted to go that route - if originality is a priority for you.)

I rp with a group of for boy's,we call ourselves the BCP <brampton cosplay posse> as of now we are starting the gluhen WK but I want a costume just for me to,I have to make ALL the costumes <5 including myself> and I usually always cosplay a boy.I think I would like to either really do the Pastha costume,the CCS or Chii,all sound great.And also,Lain bear suit was suggested...I WANT THEM ALL! X.x; p

When you say Riku do you mean Riku one of the main guys from Kingdom Hearts or Rikku the girl from FFX?

Shoulder length hair..kinda makes me think LeiLei from Vampire Hunter....

08-29-2002, 06:42 PM
Riku from Kingdom hearts,my hair cut is VERY VERY layered and done well i'm proud to say..so its easy to style into flip up or under styles..

Leilei..is she the ice girl?..I haven't seen much of it,I only know larva,miyu and the freaky cat rabbit dog thing..o.o;

Actually,it would be helpful if piccies could be prehaps sent along with new idea's since I may not know the specifics.

^____^ but even without your opinions are very much appreciated

Ah..you're thinking of Vampire Princess...Vampire Hunter's a fighting game by Capcom!
Leilei link! (http://www.gamegen.com/fightgen/characters/leilei.html)

She's real cute! ^^ Even if she has blue skin and is undead...
I probably have more ideas but it's probably best not to flood your cosplay choices..especially if you already have ideas of your own!

Oooh..Black Matrix 2 the characters all have common themes in their costumes!

Okay..no more....or i will be more hindrance than help!

No no no no! -clings- anything is better then nothing,and who know's..something you may find might just drive me into my crazy single obsessive cosplay overdrive that get's darned helpful ^^;

though that lei-lei costume looks a bit scary to me ^^;..
those black matrix costumes look pretty cute ^^..my whole posse could do it..-mind whirs-

You could go as Shana from Legend of Dragoon...

All you need to do is work out for a few months to be able to hold the weight of the wings. ^_^

LeiLei's costume is scary?
Nonono...it's cute as chinese outfits go!
Yeah Balck Matrix costumes look fun!

Sure hope I get to see your little posse at some point whatever costumes you have in mind!

I am very sure you will see them soon one way or another,we have a habit of jumping in front of unsuspecting camera men and posing.o.o; kinda like those scary pec bandits in slayers next..
except we are missing the pecs..<.<
