I've been playing DW for a long time (since it popped up on the Playstation), and I'm making a cosplay of Lu Bu from the third installment of the series. I wanted to know if there were any other Dynasty Warriors cosplayer out there

i wanna see all your costumes so much!!! *_*

*dw obsessed*

i really want to get some of da qiao's DW4 outfits done, but i'm working on some others at the moment, heh, so i don't have the budget to do those right now XD

I'll to cosplay as Diao Chan and/or da qiao as they are both cool characters! But it'll be SO hard just to find all their materials anmd it would be expencive too...:(

That sounds like a good idea, I think that I will keep that in mind for the next costume that I do. Now who to pick is another thing.

05-19-2003, 08:56 PM
it seems the Sun Clan sisters are very popular... I may be the only male Dynasty cosplayer left... which may or may not be a good thing...
One difficult part is trying to get these dragons on the shoulder and skirt armor... any tips? let me know

SephirothXer0

Zhang He is a cool character, but how are you gonna pull off his shirtlessness...? (under the circumstances...)

KulaDiamond
05-26-2003, 01:59 AM
Funny considering that one of my friends' plan for Otakon...friends convincing me to go as a DW character. Nu Wa or Yue Ying were my original options but they're pushing me to go as Zhen Ji...O_o;;

Ruri

I'll love to see someone cosplay as Lu Bu one day. I think that'll be cool :D

the fabric used in dynasty warrior costumes look too damn confusing!

05-26-2003, 09:05 PM
I would just paint the designs on, but some people might go for broke and have it sewn in o.O

I'm not cosplaying as a Dynasty Warriors character, but I've drawn one of my best friends (who isn't on Cosplay.com) into the cosplaying fold and she'll be going as Da Qiao to Otakon. So if you see a Da Qiao wandering around with a girl in either a Robin from witch hunter robin or a chii , you've found us.

KulaDiamond
05-27-2003, 01:54 AM
I dunno out of all DW characters I think Lady Sun (3rd or 4th costumes in DW4), Nu Wa, or the CAW females seem like an easy job...And Zhen Ji's dress for DW4 doesn't seem too bad.

Kirschwasser
06-01-2003, 06:46 PM
Oooo, Dynasty Warriors cosplay. One of these days, I must cosplay as on of the girls from Dynasty Warriors 4. (I'm thinking Diao Chan). But her weapons...how the heck would I come up/make something like that?
ZiggyB, you said you are going to be Zhao Yun for AX this year!? What day are you going as him? I must get a picture! ^__^

ZiggyB
06-01-2003, 06:56 PM
I dunno which day yet... I'm guessing sometime Saturday, but it's still a month away. :)

I'll be around. :>

Nerve-chan
06-01-2003, 07:49 PM
I've never seen any DW cosplay in the states, I can't wait to get a Diao Chan cos started! ^^

ZiggyB
06-01-2003, 11:49 PM
Oh hey, I saw you at ACen right? :)

We should get together for photos when we have our costumes done. :)

I'm actually gonna try and learn some moves with the staff that Zhao Yun has. I have a friend who does Chinese opera and can teach me theatrical moves with a staff.

Styrofoam, pipe cleaners, paint, wood, beads, glue......believe it or not it's coming off to a start for a friend of mine who wants to go as Diao Chan. Flowers are the only annoying thing about the weapon. Have no clue how the hell to make a flute though O_O;;

Kirschwasser
06-02-2003, 09:56 AM
Thanks for the info, Kula Diamond. ^__^ I'm just clueless when it comes to making weapons. Well, then again, I've never even tried to make a weapon before! -_-* I believe the hardest part will be finding the right fabric. I can look in Chinatown (when I'm in Los Angeles this month) and see if they have similar fabric.
I could always stick to my original plan and cosplay as Xiao Qiao from DW3. The fans would be so much easier to find or make (I'm hoping).
ZiggyB - Cool. Saturday I'm going to be Kirschwasser from Xenosaga!

KulaDiamond
06-02-2003, 11:27 PM
No problem ^_^. Least you dun hafta worry about a flute. I know I need the wood and the paint. I'm thinking paper mache all the way for that one or something...mebbe tone it down to lvl 1-3 weapon haha.

I'm considering Huang Yue Ying for Katsu because I like the weapon...looks not too hard to make either too ^_^. I think her weapon would be the easiest to make out of them all. If not there's always Nu Wa ^_^.

Kirschwasser
06-03-2003, 08:53 AM
Oh yes, the flute...that's a cool looking weapon, but you're right...the flute seems like it would be a bit more complicated to make than the fans or those mace-like weapons. ^_^* Lol at lvl 1-3 weapon...perhaps. Hmmm, it does get fancier as it levels up, doesn't it? Yeah, I guess paper mache would do it.
I can't wait to cosplay DW, because I do believe it's never been cosplayed here in the U.S. It's probably because the costumes seem so complicated, and finding the right fabric is a bit hard (at least for me, it is.)

KulaDiamond
06-04-2003, 03:09 AM
Right fabric is gonna be difficult to find. I'm thinking though that Zhen Ji's dress will be hard but not like SUPER difficult in comparison to her DW3 dress ^^;.

Nerve-chan
06-04-2003, 03:44 PM
the basic design of Zhen Ji's (DW3) dress is like a normal chinese dress with LOTS of acessories.

I wanna see a Huang Yue Ying!!! That would be so cool.
I don't Japanese cosplayers have ever done that before!

06-04-2003, 04:18 PM
Oh thanks for the links! They did some very nicely done costumes.

As for mine, I don't think I'm gonna be totally accurate since that color fabric is hard to come by, but I think it'll still look decent... I hope. :)

Kirschwasser
06-04-2003, 08:44 PM
I clicked on the link and wow...that DW cosplay is awesome! That material they used...I don't think I've seen it sold anywhere. Perhaps I might have to resort to special ordering online. -_-*

KulaDiamond
06-04-2003, 11:50 PM
Wowies that site has great costumes going *_*! I'm thinking of heading down 355 in Rockville (I live in Gaithersburg so not that far) and hittin' G-Street fabrics...I just realized I could possibly get all materials for Zhen Ji's DW4 costume (preferrably 2nd or 4th) there...^_^. Might be a tad expensive though ;_;.

SephirothXer0
06-05-2003, 01:30 PM
Luckily Lu Bu's fabric doesn't have any complicated designs on it... just the armor -_-;;

i would love to see a zhen ji DW3 cosplay... but thats way too hard for me.

06-27-2003, 08:39 PM
I wish I could have friends who wanted to cosplay as WD characters. I've been thinking about what to cosplay for a while and I think I'm going to cosplay as Diao Chan. I think her character in DW4 looks...kinda bad and old..so I'll be cosplaying in her DW3 outfit, which looks better :)
Her weapon is going to be hard make I think.. but I think I know what to do. :)

KulaDiamond
06-28-2003, 01:08 AM
I found some cool fabric to make the dress for Zhen Ji. 2nd costume in DW4 ^_^V. Now to finish the weapon and get that evil bird in her hair done and I'm set.

I saw a couple of Dynasty Warriors cosplayers at AX this last weekend. They were so amazing!

Unfortunately I didn't have my costume done in time, but here are the pictures of them!

Hehe I wish I was able to go to AX. Those are really cool pics of Da Qiao and Xiao Qiao! They did a pretty good job *_*.

Kirschwasser
07-10-2003, 05:29 PM
ZiggyB - I saw them too and just had to take a picture! One was Xiao Qiao (my favorite chara). I told them, "I love your costumes!" And they were like, "Eh?" I then realized they were from Japan and didn't speak English. If only I knew Japanese a little bit better...

ZiggyB
07-10-2003, 05:52 PM
Yah, I realized they didn't speak English either. However, when I said the name of Dynasty Warriors in Chinese they understood it! :D I think it was more the "3" that they under stood.

A more direct translation of Dynasty Warriors is Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Anyway I just wanted to make sure I did know what series they were from. :)

Kirschwasser
07-11-2003, 11:05 AM
^_^ I used to know the Japanese name for Dynasty Warriors, but it's been so long and my memory has been foggy for the past few months. :p They inspired me to really cosplay D.W., but since I already have a few costumes planned for AX '04, I'll more than likely cosplay D.W. at AX '05 (Gosh, that's a long time!) Unless for some magical reason I can do it for 2004, but I highly doubt it due to the tremendous amount of bills I have to pay within the year. -_-

KulaDiamond
07-21-2003, 03:45 PM
I tried using paper mache for Zhen Ji's 4th weapon in DW3 (Her 10th level in DW4 was too detailed.....so much work haha). It's working out pretty damn well. Gonna paint it over and add in the details *wishes she had a scanner*.

Sellafine
07-24-2003, 07:57 PM
I'm doing a Lu Xun dress for me....geez....it's take so expensive cost for the china silk......:(......I want to do a Zhuge Liang costume too... But hard to find who want to wear it here.......:)......

Kirschwasser
07-25-2003, 11:34 AM
Kula Diamond - Oooo, so you are making the weapon...awesome! ^_~ So the paper mache did work? That's good. Well, I've never seen her 10th level weapon in DW4, but her lower level ones sure look complicated. ^__^
Yep, I'm saving DW for Anime Expo 2005, because I already have three complicated costumes (well, complicated for me, that is) planned for AX04, and I won't want to be making any extra outfits.
Sellafine - Yeah, material like the characters wear is rather expensive. It's hard to find. Ocassionally I'll look for stores that sell fabric like that, and it's soooo hard to find anything similiar. Next time I'm in Los Angeles, I'm going to have to look in Chinatown. ^__^

Sellafine
07-25-2003, 09:33 PM
Yeah...I spent so much money for this Lu Xun.......:p
Maybe I'll go to a China town in my country too...to take a photoshoot.......
Gezz.....I hope someone will help me to play as Zhuge Liang here....is hard to find someone love cosplay here......:(
BTW,Kirsch...in Chinatown is so much China silk to buy....:)
Check it out....yesterday I bought some with Dragon motif on it and it make me almost Bankrupt.....:P
Kula Diamond,so you make the weapon....that's great....!
I do something a little crazy....well I think I use a real china blade to take photoshoot...I saw some weapon in China Town.....and if my saving is enough,I'm going to buy......:)

10th level is way more detailed than what her 4th level weapon in 3 was. Just painting it over and detailing it and it will look fine. I'm more concerned with that bird on her head LOL. That's looking right now like the hardest part of the costume...the rest of the materials for the dress I was able to easily nab in a fabric store (shocked that they had the pattern for the gold/black part of her dress!).

Also, for Katsucon gonna be going as Yue Ying (Along with Zhen Ji I thinks...)...a serious goal for me....so I'm going to save a piccy of her weapon as 9th level in DW4 and go for her 10th to see what's easier to do....Gonna get that done with ASAP.

Sellafine: I'm trying to get a friend of mine to go as either Zhuge Liang or Lu Xun ^_^. A fun challenge especially if he chooses to go as Zhuge Liang because of that fan he's always got.....^_^;;

Sellafine
07-27-2003, 12:56 AM
Yeah....actually Zhuge Liang is my fave chara in DW...but it's not matching if I cosplay as him ...... :p
So I think it should be a Guy who will cosplay as him.....
I'm still trying to ask my friends too.... :) ....
Anyway Good Luck to all of U.... ;)

Ah, yes...the bird headpiece. Hmmm, I've seen some pictures before of somebody cosplaying as her, and I was wondering at the time: How in the world did they make the headpiece? It's the same thing with the women who cosplayed DW at AX this year. I was also wondering how they made their hairpieces, but unfortunately I could not ask, for they only spoke Japanese and...I'm not good at Japanese conversational skills yet. (I need to study more).
That's great that you found the fabric, though! Was it a regular fabric store which you found the fabric?

Well I'm using material not as thick as cardboard but not flimsy like paper either.....and I got beads and string too....^^;;. Gonna put in small holes and use bobby pins to pin it to mah hair...hoping it will work cuz I'll be using quite a bit. Right now drawing it out on the material I'll be using (I forgot the name haha) and then gonna cut it out. Working on outlining the head and a portion of the front that has a rose-colored bead hanging down.

Fabric store about 15-20 mins away called G-Street Fabrics sells all the fabric necessary for a DW cosplay...let me tell you...found everything for the dress there and am happy for that. Now gonna work with some pattern and work with getting this done ASAP...that way I can move on to Yue Ying. ^_^V

Which Qiao are you two going to cosplay as: the pair from DW3 or DW4? One of these days I'll start working on my Xiao Qiao (DW3), for I found some great fabric I can use for the outfit. I'm still looking for a pair of huge fans, though. Whenever I do, I'll probably end up painting them the right colour, then adding on the designs. I do believe customizing the shoes will be the hardest.
Off topic: Yuffieleonheart - That's so cool that you have the Shadow Hearts guy in your sig. I thought nobody knew about that game! ^_^

So much detail? I so lucked out for the Zhen Ji dress cuz i found fabric that had the exact patterns...of course that took a bit out of my wallet but...eh heh. I'm adding on silver fabric around the sleeves of the dress and putting together the bottom...@_@. You going to add the detail yourself?

Also I've been talking to a friend of mine and I might have to help him make a Lu Xun costume (preferably DW3 cuz its easier). Depends on whether he can make it to Katsu 10. If not then most likely it will be DW4 version for O2K4.

you could try buying off of yahoo auctions japan using rinkya, but you're going to be paying insane prices. i've tried bidding for a sun ce, cao cao, and a zhou yu (all DW4 models) but each of them went for more than $600. i was only willing to pay $500. on top of that would be rinkya's $40 service charge PLUS $15 - $30 to ship it to your address. waaay too much.

Yahoo! Auctions Japan: http://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/
Rinkya: http://www.rinkya.com

the best idea would be to commission someone to make it for you. but still, note that you'll be paying a higher price than most costumes because of the complexity of any DW costume.

Well the main thing is to get the colors right. I've seen some online with weird colors. I've even seen a purple da qiao. Basically that green thing on top. I like to call it the football thingy. That part is totally separate. I connected it with snaps to the basic dress. this is so you don't have a line on the back where the zipper is going down. In the game you can see that there aren't any seam lines which makes it hard to cosplay because its unrealistic. This costume depends mostly on the fabric from what i believe. If anymore questions just post again.
good luck!

Wow...it boggles my mind to see so many other people talking about Dynasty Warriors cosplay. Nice to know there are other people crazy enough to try. *grin*

Looks like the girls and Lu Xun are the most popular to cosplay here?

Some friends and I are hoping to get a DW group together for Ushicon 2005, although even if that falls apart I'm still planning on making my costume and wearing it to A-Kon or RoninCon or something. I'm working on Lu Xun's DW3 costume. We have one person planning on Yue Ying, and a couple others who haven't decided yet...I think we'll have a Ma Chao, but the guy doing that might do Pang Tong instead. I guess we'll see how it goes, since we only just started firing ideas around for this.

I did find a few patterns online that look like they should work nicely for my Lu Xun costume, although I haven't ordered them yet. At least I've got an idea of something to start with! Finding that material could be interesting, though...

Iris Amergin: Yeah crazy to try this alright....so many paychecks have gone to the work of Zhen Ji's dress ^^;;.

I've been working on making changes to the 9th lvl weapon for Zhen Ji but I'm thinking I might make a lower lvl version of her weapon that isn't so incredibly detailed and save the 9th lvl work for O2K4....@_@...taking longer than I thought it was going to and college classes are taking up some time *study study*.

Kula and Chichiri --> Thank you... :)
I really want to see your Zhen Ji and Jiang Wei costume :) !

Iris-->To have a good China Silk ,try to look up in China Town, maybe it's a little expensive but it'll look great for your costume.. :)

BTW,I'll take another photoshoot ( this time is not a testing :) ) on this Saturday, I wanna make a classical photograph of Lu Xun and Zhen Ji ( my friend will cosplay as her),that is mean I don't use my Falcon again ( it's too modern),and if u have any suggestion about classical China pose or what should I do with my costume to make my photos look more classic please tell me..... :)

Aww...might be cool if you two had a duel and did cool poses while dueling. You going to put these pics with Zhen Ji in your gallery?

Sellafine
10-21-2003, 05:04 AM
Kula-->Yes,I'll put it on my gallery , I hope you guys will like it , I make some differences to Zhen Ji dress ( it will be red ) , my friend isn't a cosplay , she didn't want to wear a "too unique" dress ... hiks...maybe it isn't look like Zhen Ji anymore..... :(,but the photographer like it...
Theme of the photoshoot maybe "Zhen Ji being kidnapped in Wu.."
And Lu Xun a little "fallin in love" with her....hey...hey...don't angry to me.... :p ...it was a scenario by my friends and the photographer :)
They say Lu Xun is a boy and Zhen Ji is a beautiful mature girl , a photoshoot should be nice if we make some romantic pose... :P , but of course not so romantic,I told them that Zhen Ji is from Wei and Lu Xun is from Wu...then we decide to make Lu Xun broken heart pose in the end....
If U have any other suggestion I'll appreciate it so much....maybe I'll make some duel pose at first... :skidude2: (thanks for the idea ,Kula!)
Lu Xun who defeat Zhen Ji and kidnapped her...

KulaDiamond
10-25-2003, 04:12 AM
Hm....Lu Xun falling for Zhen Ji but because their differences in their kingdoms it doesn't work out type of scenario sounds like a nice story. Hm...makes me wish a Lu Xun would show at Katsu (maybe I'll get lucky eh?). That'd be cute to see Lu Xun heartbroken for Zhen Ji aww...But if the dress is red mebbe you can have it be that Zhen Ji changed alliance and joined Wu kingdom instead?

Sellafine
10-25-2003, 08:18 AM
Yeah,the photographer said red dress for Zhen Ji look cute.. he say "She's being kidnapped so she must wear a Wu dress , isn't it? " :) ...If my parents still allow me to cosplay..maybe I'll go to Katsu ( I really want to go there :( ) . Anyway,maybe we will take this photoshoot at November...my friends keep supporting me to make a Zhuge Liang costume too, I'm still considering to make it... :)

KulaDiamond
10-26-2003, 01:45 AM
That would be cool to see you at Katsu ^_^. Another Dynasty Warriors cosplayer is always great! There's plenty of time to be able to make it to Katsu since its in Feb. so yeah why not?

Zhuge Liang costume sounds cool. Which one would you consider making: DW3 or DW4?

Sellafine
10-26-2003, 03:24 AM
I wanna make Zhuge Liang from DW3... :)
I think DW3 version of Zhuge Liang is really look like the original Zhuge Liang (I saw it in Zhuge Liang Memorial temple,Cheng Du , San Quo TV series and some china old picture of him)...
Since I like him so much...I decide to make his costume too :)

Aw, I hope you can come to Katsu, there's still time though plenty of time to change their minds if they say no...^^;;.

If you can make it why not go as Lu Xun? If you can't make up you're mind you can always wear one costume one day and the other another day.

After school later I'm gonna work on my Zhen Ji costume. My friend is gonna go with me as Diao Chan from DW4 so I'm gonna help her with either the 9th or 10th level weapon so I'm finally back to working on costumes instead of school stuff @_@.

ChichiriFreak - *Yay~!* Now I know I won't be alone when I cosplay DW. (I'd cosplay it anyway even if nobody did! ^_~) I'm trying to convince my guy to go as Zhou Yu, but he's just shaking his head at me at the moment. *Boinks him on the head* He's not into cosplay like I am. He likes it, but he won't participate in it for some odd reason. ^_^*
Sellafine - *Nods* I've grown to like Xiao Qiao's DW4 outfit a lot. I believe the hardest part to her outfit will be the obi, since the back of it goes from green to yellow to red (or something like that). Oh yes, and the fans too. I'll go searching in Chinatown in Los Angeles during X-Mas break to see if I can find such huge fans. Yep, of course, I would love to show the photos of it once I finish the thing (who knows when). *Laughs*

Yay...I finally got access to the Net for now!! (I'm in Cali right now! XD) I NEVER get access to the Net while I'm here, but~...

On-topic: Wow, those pictures of Xiao Qiao are also good reference, ChichriFreak. ^_^ Well, I searched Chinatown in Downtown Los Angeles the other day & I didn't find any fabric at all for the costume. (Besides, a lot of the shops are shut down or are closed). But I did find some fans which are the perfect size. I'm going to have to modify them. I can't wait to get started on them. I can tell it's going to be a pain painting over them (I'm probably going to use acrylic) & I'm not sure how to make the big flowers, but I'll figure something out. :)

Now that I can actually use my hair for the outfit (it's the right length), all of the sudden it's turned light! It used to be almost the same colour as Xiao's, but for some reason (it must be the sun) it turned a light red-gold-brown colour. *laughs* I'm probably going to have to colour it darker before the con in July, because there is no way I'm going to use a wig. ^__^

I've been playing more the the game over my X-Mas/New Years break. I'm mostly leveling up all Wu characters. I actually resemble Da Qiao better, but I like Xiao so much better that I can't help but cosplay as her. *laughs again* The jungle levels are sooo hard. I actually killed 1500 men (it's true!), but Lu Xun died so I didn't get any credit. ^_^* What a nightmare. I'm playing as Sun Ce now. I like his 2nd set of outfit 'cause his hair is down. :D

Kinonko - I still have to buy the fabric for the costume. ^__^* I'm going to have to buy some of the patterned material online. As for the non-patterend fabric, I'm going to go fabric hunting sometime next week & I'm sure I can find the correct stuff. I still have to make two other costumes too! (A Suikoden III one and a Elegant Gothic Lolita.) It is going to be hard, because I don't have much free time anymore. (Because of school and work.) As for my boyfriend, I'm not too sure. He works a tedious and busy job & hardly has any time off & I don't think he can make it to AX. Besides, he can't make costumes & I don't think I am going to have the time to make it for him. I need to take care of my stuff first.

ChichiriFreak - I can't wait either! *Grins* Hopefully more people will want to cosplay DW with us this year at AX! ^__^ Is it hard to make the Jiang Wei costume? It looks like it to me! :D

Sellafine - That would be awesome! But how would we all meet? *Grins*

I'm almost done with Pang Tong. Aside from worrying that I made the sleeves too wide (it goes down to around my knees, like in the render), I need to figure out that girdle thing, and also work out straps for the hat. Hints are welcome.

Oh, and here's (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=103470) what I got so far.

Kirschwasser
01-12-2004, 02:56 PM
That is so awesome that you are going to cosplay as Pang Tong, Paul Soth!! Well, if the sleeves go about to your knees, then that should be just fine, for Pang Tong's sleeves are pretty long. I like what you have got going so far. You are doing a good job. As for the "girdle" thing, I haven't a clue. Gomen nasai. Maybe somebody else might have an idea as to making it. ^_^

I think the big issue would be making it stiff enough so that the top corners don't fold outward. Thankfully, I came across some much better pictures of him:

Let' me tell u a secret Sellafine!!

Quiao sisters and almost "Wu" 's character are extremely too much in Taiwan !!:waaaah:

Maybe u can see more then 10 couple of these 2 sisters!! (really)

U can go Japanese and Taiwanese website to search it, U will find out alots!!
:heart:

01-13-2004, 10:36 PM
this is quite true.

a lot of the japanese DW cosplayers i've come across are mostly characters from the Wu side, including the Qiao sisters.

i can't seem to find a lot of sites where there are DW4 Qiao cosplayers. but there's always like 10 or more DW4 Da Qiao or Xiao Qiao costumes being sold on Yahoo! Auctions Japan. a majority of them were used, but now it seems that most of of them are brand new costumes.

what i don't see people choosing from is the Nanman side. haha.

Kirschwasser
01-14-2004, 03:14 PM
Paul Soth - I'm not too sure what you could use to make it stiff. I usually make fabric stiff by using this stuff called pellon (I think that's how it's spelled), but it was used for lightweight stuff (like my hats for Kirschwasser and Chii costumes). I'm sorry. I can't help much right now. (I'm still new to cosplay. There is so much I need to learn.)

Sellafine - Okay! ^_^ But you will have to wait until the middle of July until there are pictures of me. XD (Anime Expo is so close, yet seems so far away.)

Oh, so the Qiao sisters are pretty popular cosplay? *laughs merrily* I don;t blame the people who cosplayed them. The Qiao sisters have cute outfits. I wanted to be Diao Chan originally, but her costume (and weapons) are too advanced for me at this point. Yeah, Wu seems a popular kingdom that is cosplayed, but I have seen many of the other characters. I'd like to see somebody cosplay as Lu Bu!

there are a lot more online cosplay stores that have made DW costumes. this is probably the most i've seen out of one store tho. some of them look really tacky and are too shiny...like the gold panels for Zhang He.

I don't want to sound mean, but I really wonder why Xiao Qiao costume lt. green and orange when her outfit is light green and red. Well, her shorts are crimson red while part of her sleeves and the top part of the outfit is red-orangish (more on the red side). It's a cute costume, anyway. It's going to be so hard to find a light green brocade fabric. I've seen every other colour for the Chinese brocade silk, but not a light green like Xiao's. ^_^*

I was figuring out all the other stuff I need to buy for my 3 AX cosplay, and it's going to be expensive~!

Of course, they aren't going to be the hairpieces I wear to AX, but~ it was just for the time being...), and I actually resembled her...a bit. *laughs* But really, it looked good & I'm so glad I can use my actual hair.

*Pokes the topic.*

Er, yes, two friends and I are going to be cosplaying DW. One of them, a Zhuge Liang, already finished hers. And the other one that was (forcefully) convinced to do Zhou Yu just ran out to look for fabric half an hour ago. Annnd... If you couldn't tell from the pattern, I'll be going as Sima Yi, solely for the oppertunity to thwack random people with my featherduster.

Hopefully we'll all be able to go to AX'04. The Zhou Yu and I are going for sure, but it's going to take a lot of convincing to get the Zhuge to be able to go.

Okay, I finally found some fabric for my Xiao. *Claps hands in excitement* I found it online. I'll be making it out of Thai Silk (brocaded) and it's pretty expensive, but I'm just so happy I found the fabric in the right colours. *Dances to some made up tribal music* I'm going to order it today & I can't wait until it comes in the mail, that way I can finally get working on the outfit.

Hmm..I posted this in a seperate thread, cause I didn't see this one here, ^_^; but I figure I may as well post it here anyway...Xiao Qiao's (DW4 version) fans. x_x Where should I ever start with making them? I need them light enough to carry around all day, but tough enough to take a bit of a beating...Any help?

Master Zero - *Yaaay~!* That's great. :D The more DW at AX, the merrier.

ChichiriFreak - I can't wait for my finished Xiao too~! XD Wow, that's great that you finished with your Jiang Wei outfit? Oh, you found better fabric, you say? What type of fabric is it?

Obscurity - Hey~, that cool that we are making the same outfit. ^_^ As for the fans, well...I wouldn't know how you may be able to make them, for I'm not making Xiao's fans out of scratch. :p I bought similar sized fans over in Chinatown (Downtown Los Angeles, CA) & I'm going to paint them to look like Xiao's~.

Kinonko - I love your new avatar~! What is it from?

Kinonko - I love your new avatar~! What is it from?

Kirschwasser:
I 'm glad u noticed my new avatar!!!

This is the character from Koei 's new game "戰國無雙Sengoku Musou" and her name is "Okuni", She is a famouse witch dancer in Sengoku Japan.

This game system as same as DW (cause they both are the same company :skidude2: )


Come to check this website,the game's informations!!! :
http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/sengoku/

I think u will like this game :D!!!
It is on sale now in Asia , maybe it will coming soon in the state ,but maybe isn't this name .(Like DW, we call "Shin Sangoku Musou" but in state u call "DW".)

By the way:

this is all the character: http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/sengoku/top/charactor/index.htm
maybe the character designers are lazy to create the new type of character so they used the same model mode in this game, you can see here r some character are looks similar as DW :skidude2: !!!!

for a example:

Isn't Oichi looks like Syao Quia XD????

X_X That sounds like a good idea...But there is no Chinatown where I live (Here in northwest Ohio). *sigh* Maybe I can find something online...I don't really have to have this outfit done anytime soon....

Sellafine
02-12-2004, 08:21 AM
Kinonko-->I see... I see....this one a very different game....
Anyone know any information about Dynasty Warior : Empire???
BTW,Kinonko...you planning to cosplay Mori right?.....I think I'm planning to cosplay either Akhechi Mitsuhide or Nouhime... XD
Still considering which one goin to suit me better.. :P

Kinonko - Thanks for the links. Those are some unique/interesting character designs. Aah~, so this game is made by the same people who do DW? *Laughs merrily* It looks like it. ^_^

Sellafine - There's going to be another Dynasty Warriors game? Wow...do you have links to a site that might have information on it?

Sengoku Musou is being releashed as "Samurai Warriors"... due out sometime in March in the USA.

Kirschwasser
02-13-2004, 02:07 PM
Thanks for the information, Kinonko & ChichiriFreak. ^_^ I am assuming that this is an entire new game. (?) The reason I am asking because it has the exact same characters as DW4.

ChichiriFreak
02-13-2004, 02:16 PM
Yeah. It's a Whole different Game set in Japan instead of China. The same creators of Dynasty Warriors also made this game...so you can see the resemblence between the characters...Like. Oda Nobunaga looks like Cao Cao...That one guy looks like Zhang he, and Yukimura looks like Sun Ce. ^_^;..the battle system is also the same as DW.

DW Empire Looks really good!!! i wanna play that now!

Sellafine
02-13-2004, 04:03 PM
Kirschwasser-->Yes , there are be another game of DW , I know it from
http://www.yueying.net/dw
but still confusing , what kind of DW gameis this?? :P
Kinonko-->Thanks for the link.....maybe I'm goin to make thread , searching for Samurai Warior cosplay.... :P

Chichiri-->And mitsuhide look like Zhou Yu very much..... :D

Kirschwasser
02-16-2004, 01:22 PM
About that game "Sengoku Musou", I like the outfits for Mori Ranmaru and Oichi. If I knew more about the game (and even got around to playing it), I would cosplay it. ^_^ Ha ha...you're right, Sellafine, that Mitsuhide guy does look like Zhou Yu.

02-17-2004, 04:11 AM

ChichiriFreak - *slaps the palms of my hands to my cheeks* Are you serious~~!?!? (Of course you are, but...) Oh, wow, that really bites. :( I would be soooooo angry if my sister ruined any of my costumes somehow...it would be death for her. (Not that my sister would do such a thing...I think. *Sweatdrop*) But jeez, I'm sorry that happened to you. Having to redo it all over again for AX...gosh. That's terrible. -_-Well, I hope all the best for you.

Oh yeah, and speaking of AX, when should we have the DW gathering? It can be any day but Saturday (because Saturday is the EGL gathering day).

Sellafine - Well, if I ever get a hold of the game & like it, I would cosplay either of the two girls I mentioned above (depending on which character I would like more). I have to play a game first before I cosplay the character. So if I do like the game, I'll be cosplaying it next year. (Such a lo----------ng time away from now~!)

ChichiriFreak
02-18-2004, 03:45 PM
YES it was a PAIN!!!! >__< well...now i have go buy new fabric..and redo it all. the only thing that was saved was the left halfskirt whatever it is. -_-;;;.

anyway.. hmm Maybe Sunday?? for the DW shoot?

Kirschwasser
02-18-2004, 04:01 PM
Ah, Sunday is a good day. After all, it's only you, I, and Master Zero who is going to be cosplaying DW at AX, so I believe it's safe for us to decide the time here. ^_~ Do you think I should mention it on the AX message boards, in case anybody else might be interested?

Model scans are up for DW3 characters at http://www.yueying.net/dw ! Front view, side view, and back view.

Might make it a bit easier, especially if a weapon gets in the way of half the picture. *Evil glance at Sima Yi's huge fan.*

BTW....I LOOOOOOOOVE YOUR AVATAR!!! Zhao Yun mega hottie! *_*

I finally got the ankle high white boots in the mail (which are the ones for Xiao Qiao), so now I can work on converting them. I'm also (currently) working on the fans. I'm sanding & priming the wood before I paint it that metallic gold. ^_^ I might as well make the hair accessories too. I'm still waiting for the brocade fabric to come in the mail so I can get started on the outfit.

Sellafine - I won't have pictures of it until July. I know, it's a long time to wait. -_-* I still have to make it. I wish the fabrics would come in the mail sooner (they are taking a long time.)

ChichiriFreak - Oh yeah, what time should we have the DW gathering on Sunday, July 4th, at Anime Expo? There is free time after 2 pm & it probably isn't a good idea to have it before 10 in the morning. But there is also an opening for a gathering at 11 in the afternoon. I know it's still a bit early, but it's better to get it organized early before it's too late. ^_~

02-22-2004, 05:05 PM
Hmm..Well July 4th at 2 Pm is a good time for me! ^_^...just need a location. Hopefully i won't get lost...since being my 1st time at AX..^_^;;;;

here's a Picture i saw of a DW4 Diao Chan..too bad it's only waist up.

Okay, 2 p.m it is~! ^__^ Alright...where oh where shall it take place at? Let's see...hmmm. *Thinks about it for a while* There are so many places at the Convention Center for AX...inside the CC, inside the hotels, outside...oh gosh, I don't know right now. *laughs* Let me think about it for the next few days. Ah, you won't get lost. ^_~ Hey, maybe we can meet early on Sunday before the DW gathering, because...I need somebody to hang out with. :) I'm attending AX by myself & I don't want to be walking about alone, so~...is that okay with you? *Hopes*

Oh, Lainey, you asked about DW4 Diao Chan cosplayers. You can find a bunch of Diao Chan (and just DW4 in general) cosplay sites by searching on the www.yahoo.co.jp search engine...that is, if you can understand Japanese & your computer supports the language. ^_~ This page ( http://gogatunosakura.moo.jp/myweb_012.htm ) has a two pictures of Diao Chan. Actually, the main site itself has some really cute & good DW4 cosplay~!

I've been looking up DW4 cosplay on other Japanese just to get an idea how some of the girls cosplay Xiao Qiao. A lot of those DW cosplayers are rea---lly good. There was even a Meng Huo cosplay, but the guy wasn't as huge as Meng Huo himself. ^_^

Which brings me too: Damn, I wish I had a Zhou Yu coming with me for AX. Shame on my boyfriend for not wanting to cosplay Zhou Yu-sama with me! :p
