Ok, so, I'm normally a big comic guy (been to a bunch of cons on the East Coast) and some of my friends are really into anime, and want me to come to Nekocon this year. Of course, I'm obliging. Yesterday, I started thinking "Man, I should just dress up!"

I had a beard for almost 4 years, and I shaved it yesterday. I'm gonna do Squall, just because I fucking LOVE FFVIII. You guys think I can pull it off?

Just imagine me without the beard.

Anyway, I've never done Cosplay or dressing up (It's not really cosplay unless you do a skit onstage, and I don't think I'm gonna be doing that...). I just wanted to introduce myself here, first.

You kind of strike me more as a Jet Black (cowboy bebop) than a Squall, but thats just mho.

Ah, welcome to the world of cosplay! You'd better get crackin on that costume, cause boy does time fly when you're trying to get things done!

You know, you look like you could pull off both Jet and Squall! Best of luck on your costuming adventures!

Luckily the costume is gonna be fairly easy. I mean, I all ready have the hair, I can buy a make-up scar at Party City. I need like...black dockers, a couple belts. The only thing that's a little tough is gonna be the jacket, which I am thrift store hunting for tomorrow. And, chances are, I'll buy a replica sword from ebay or something. I wasn't going to at first, but then the idea of me having a gunblade made me squeel. I don't think I have the time/money/energy to pull off a Jet...although that would be pretty badass, as he's my face CB character. And too late for the Lupin character, as my beard is long gone, and I plan on keeping it that way!!!
