View Full Version : Anyone else Cosplaying for the first time at Otakon?

03-01-2003, 11:28 PM
Ok, this is my third time going to the Big O but it's going to be my first time Cosplaying EVER (well unless you count that time I went to a Star Trek convention when I was 14 and dressed up as random starfleet command officer) I'm a little nervous. I'm trying to get my cousin to make me the costume because I can't make clothes (programming computers, builting robots I can do) So is anyone else going to be cosplaying for the first time at Otakon? I plan on going as Sora one day, Dexter (from dexter's lab) another day, and possibly Roger from the Big- O a third day. Maybe some people can get together and we could be the Rookie Cosplay group. Or if you don't have a group you could join and we could be the Sad and Lonely Cosplayers group. Anyway I can't WAIT, ARRRGGHHH

I'll be cosplaying for the very first time, too! I'm doing Popstar Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2 and a character from Angel Sanctuary (haven't chosen which character yet..I'm deciding between Sara, Kurai and Kirie).

The only other con I've gone to was AXNY last year ^^ I felt soo out of place in my 'normal' clothes lol.

Hey, new cosplayers, alright ^^
I'm not new to cosplaying, just wanted to offer a little advice: Don't bite off more than you can chew. My first year, I thought I could handle most things, but in truth, it was trickier than I thought. So I just wanted to warn you, take your time with it, and be sure it's at your level. You'll get better as you go, trust me, I think I have.
Other than that, be sure to have FUN! That's what it's about after all ^^
Good luck, and hope to see you guys there!

Otakon will be my first time cosplaying as well, unless you count a few Halloweens as Yuffie and Sailor Jupiter. ^_^; I'm planning on going as Aika from Skies of Arcadia but I"m thinking maybe I should bring one or two other costumes for the other days? I'm not sure!

03-07-2003, 03:48 PM
*waves hands frantically* I WILL! I WILL! lol I'd be going as White Mage Yuna and Chii Hopefully!

Otakon will be my first con ever, but i've got two really good friends who are con fanatics so i won't be too lost. I can't wait!! I'm cosplaying as Rin from InuYasha, a random Battle Royale student with a group of other people and maybe Videl from DBZ if i can get it done in time.
Thank goodness for experienced friends, i'm so glad i'm not going at this alone!!

This is going to be my first Otakon, but Shoujocon 02 was my first cosplaying experience....^-^; but that was a very bad experience....wooo...did i learn a lot....but anyway, this is gonna be one hell of a fun time for me, I'm doing 3 costumes, Lulu(FFX),Lulu Bathingsuit(FFX-Original Design),Shuichi(Gravitation),and maybe, if i have time and $$, Popstar Yuna(FFX-2)

Merle-chan, sorry for not being specific, when i said bad experience, i ment w/ mah costume, i.e. seams ripped, and i stained it...^^;

03-21-2003, 04:42 PM
It'll be my first time there too.

Otakon was my first con last year. It was a lot of fun. If this is your first time to the BCC, then get a map and hang out with someone who knows the layout. Trade secret: the people who look lost aren't Ryouga cosplayers, they really are lost, lol. Took me into the second day to find the art room.

Last year was my first con and cosplay. It was a lot of fun, although I missed out on a lot. So be sure you read through the booklet before running off. Whee, the art room was my fave place =^..^=

Second con, second Otakon, first cosplay. Went better than expected... Going as Jesus to a convention full of people with questionable(at the least) religious beliefs, I was pleasantly surprised by the reaction I got. Though, I think seeing Jesus among all the Vashs and Alucards made people of all religions go "Whoa, what the hell!?" It didn't help that Jesus had a Hellsing badge.

First convention, first cosplay. BOOYAH.

08-31-2003, 04:00 PM

Well its not my first con or first time cosplaying (5th otakon, 9th con, 6th year cosplaying) but remember you do get better after time so don't shoot so high. Umm and don't be intimidated by photographist, cause some ask for odd pictures ^^. Anywho, have fun and do some cool poses cause nobody wants your picture if you look dead ^_^
