heya all
i have a lot of cosplays on my plate. but i am considering doing kos mos for a con in the future (far future cuz it is a difficult cosplay for me and i dont have time to fisih before AX this year)
i like all of her outfits, but i am just curious to see what you thinks is your favorite kos mos outfit and favorite shion outfit(for my friend) if you could see any of them cosplayed.
also, i would love it if you guys would tell me what one you think is most difficult to do. this is because i am a new cosplayer, and i see outfits not knowing how difficult they might actually be. thanks for inmput all!!!

heres refs(lots of em)

My favorite Shion outfit BY FAR is Xenosaga I's depiction. I preferred geeky Shion in general though.

As for KOS-MOS, my favorite outfits of hers were always what she wore in Xenosaga I, and the second link you posted from Xenosaga III. Though both of her outfits from III were pretty good.

Good luck with deciding, and with the costume in general since KOS-MOS ain't easy! :J

Having only seen a little bit of the first Xeno, the first Kos-mos pic is the one I easily identify with Kos-Mos. (It also was the one I liked best out of a design standpoint.) The second Xeno 3 outfit intrigues me for a 2nd choice. I'd say the 2 Xeno 3 outfits would be the toughest just because they have so many little armor bits and details everywhere (the front of the first Xeno 3 one looks like it'd be a pain for that white part on the body to lay correctly).

The first Shion is my favorite as well (again, I only saw bits of the first game but its the one that I associate with her just from what I know of her).

thanks for the opinions all. i agree with shion, the first dorky one is just so much more of her.

pocket-- the first one is definetely the most recognized, but it is also done the most. i kinda want to do a different one, just to not have as much competition lol.
the xeno3(2) one is awesome, i am kinda picking between the two xeno 3 ones. they are both my favrites, and i might be able to get a t-elos. i didnt think about the first ones chest part being hard to lay flat.. but it would.. tape? XD
