View Full Version : A not so known character?

Hmm...okay I am just too tired of seeing all these soras....all these bleach characters...all these tohrus....

Soo....is there anyone out there is a not so known character like a character from Haruhi Suzumiya...Fate/stay night...or maybe a less cosplayed character from Trigun? If you are can ya make a hyper link to a photo of that character? It can even be an original character...those are always interesting.

I am being Hibiki Awama from I Me My Strawberry Eggs for onicon and that character is barely cosplayed =D.

EDIT(taken from post)
I am not only talking about RARE characters as in anime...but RARE cosplays. Lets see an example...uhm...Ranma. Ranma is a popular anime/manga, no? But I don't see alot of him around.
Another one...Chobits...Chii is cosplayed ALOT...but I don't see the girl that looks like a maid often...she is that smart kid's 'sister'.
If you be something that is highly recognizable...but not done ALOT...it is indeed alot of fun..becuase you are going to be one of the very few of your kind. You will be pointed out and hugged.
I see that alot of you guys are only putting very rare characters...so i just want to explain myself. ^^

Another example is KH2....this is the new fad for cosplayers...the most I see is sora or riku or kairi. Someone that I would say is rare from that but highly recognizable is Ansem.

If you were ever Ansem I would recomend that you already post a piccie of you cause i will beg until you do. Ansem has an awesome costume.

Also I will say again it can be a rare character. Something not quiete known. Or a made up character.

Or something just plain unique. I am going to point out one girl but not put her s/n...she was kairi but a lolita version. She made it unique without looking like Kairi with black nail polish.

I haven't actually completed this yet, but for awhile now I'd been planning on crossplaying Gren from Cowboy Bebop (he shows up in the episodes Jupiter Jazz: parts 1 & 2). I was able to find just about everything clothing-wise for the costume at various thrift stores, only I have been unable to find his red shirt =-_-= I was even gonna borrow my mom's old saxophone to use as a prop :3 He's a really minor character, but he's still one of my favorites.

Since you mentioned Trigun, the thought had crossed my mind to cosplay as the chick from the 2nd episode (she had a red coat like Vash's, and blonde hair that she wore up, also looking somewhat similar to Vash's). I quickly scrapped that idea, however, when I figured it'd probably be in bad taste to cosplay someone who not only was only in one episode, but I couldn't even remember her name =x_x=

I'm working on Eureka from Eureka seven. It only started to play on Adult Swim a few months ago. About 3 other people have coplayed someone from that show.

And I am also working on Yuffie DOC. That version is hardly ever done.
Reference for Eureka (http://www.animestocks.com/eureka_seven.jpg)
Yuffie DOC (http://finalfantasy.gamigo.de/pics/newspics/yuffie_doc.gif)

Also you could do a Devil does exist cosplay. I'm the only one who has done that series on this forum I think. -_-

To Jen-neko

awesome for the cowboybebop cosplay...that would be intersting to see. Oh and that girl's(can't remember her name either xD) cosplay wouldn't be of distatse! If you like the anime then thats good enough...if I saw you I would be able to recognize who you were...even though it would take a bit for me to call your name..lol

To clock work: I always see ninjas from the leaf village(or I call it the leaf village) so thats good to hear. Some variation is good...(a thousand narutos come up)

To SaltySlippers: ooo nice. I never acctually heard of Eureka...I really need to watch TV more x__X.

OMG I have never seen that Yuffie before...thats totally awesome

Speaking of DOC, I'm planning to cosplay the character Shalua Rui from that game =^^= I haven't seen anyone cosplay as her yet. She's the girl with the lab coat in this picture: http://mokkori60.free.fr/famit2.jpg

Oh, btw, I found out that the girl's name from Trigun is Mary Anne =>.>=

Lesser characters from Trigun: definately the Nebraska family. I'm working on a Marilyn Nebraska cosplay, and as far as I know I'm the only one to attempt to do so.

There's also Kuroneko-sama and the one-episode characters, like Jessica or a couple of the Gung-ho Guns.

As far as other series, there's Scryed, of which I have only seen a few cosplays. I've also done a cosplay from NightWalker, which is isn't a well-known series.

Well the character I'm cosplay is well known but the costume I don't think has ever been done (not that I've seen...)

I'm doing Fye from Tsubasa only his blue and gold spirit town outfit because everyone seems to do his regular and dragon outfit even though their are a TON of amazing costumes to pick from >.<

Speaking about uncommon characters but still having people recognize you--I don't see a whole lot of other Cantis (FLCL) running around, though after two and a half versions of him, I can tell why... I think we need more Cantis..... And more FLCL in general--then again, I'm kinda biased in this situation.

I'm going to try having my obscure-character cosplay done this year for SDCC: Windows95 from OS-Tans. I've seen Me, XP, and 2000 cosplayed before, but 95-chan is pretty rare. This is my first time doing a not-well-known character so we'll see what kind of reaction I get (if anyone recognizes me at all).

I like to cosplay as obscure characters from popular series - so there's more of a chance that someone will know who you are, but you don't see 70 million other people doing the same costume. So far, lesser known character's I've coaplayed are - Amiboshi from Fushigi Yuugi (along with a friend who was Suboshi), Hikitsu from Fushigi Yuugi (same friend was Tomite), Otogi from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Soi from Fushigi Yuugi, and soon to be Joe from Digimon 02. I'll see if I can hunt down pictures of myself, then I'll post linkies.

Half of my cosplay plans to this point are, to the American fandom at large, considered obscure...
Seriously...as it stands, my list for the future:

-Gavane Gooney (Turn A Gundam) (http://www.gundamuniverse.it/personaggi/Turn_A_08.jpg)
-Taiso (Giant Robo: The Animation) (lower left corner) (http://www.animeye.it/Recensioni/Speciali/GiantRobot/Experts.jpg)
-Ryoma Nagare (Getter Robo (original series)) (not the best image I'll admit, but for the original series, a bit stuck) (http://www.encirobot.com/spac/chars/ryo11.jpg)
-Lord Desslar (Space Battleship Yamato) (http://nihonsite.com/mang/secoes/serie/imagens/desslock.jpg)
-Gades (The Vision of Escaflowne...recognized show, unrecognized character) (http://www.anime-revenge.net/images/esca_33-gades.jpg)
-Bes Jordan (Space Runaway Ideon) (...I'm gonna have to cap some better shots later) (http://ideon.shin-getter.net/avatar_bes.jpg)
and
-Corkus (Berserk) (http://www.megkazul.net/images/brcorkus001.jpg) (Yeah, the show's definitely no stranger to cosplay, but, to this day, I've not seen anyone go as him...Hell, most of the time when I mention the idea, people don't recognize the name at first till I describe him as 'The smartass member of the Hawks that wants to kill Guts')

...yeeeeah, I've got a lot ahead...

EDIT: Finally got some image links...some, I confess, aren't as good as they could be (that's what I get for working on this late at night) I'll work on getting some better caps up for some of them later.

You have no idea how happy that makes me. =^.^=
I've always wanted to see Strawberry Eggs...It looks really cute/interesting.

Anyhow, I'm planning quite a few not so cosplayed characters.
Anemone from Eureka seveN (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/xx_stellar/ES-anemonePVC.jpg). (My new favorite pink-haired female.)
Haruhi's (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/xx_stellar/sh39.jpg) cheerleading outfit, from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. (I have a feeling a ton of people will start to cosplay this very shortly. ^^)
Hiyono (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/xx_stellar/hiyono02d.gif) from Spiral
Frau Bow (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/xx_stellar/mirka13.jpg) from Mobile Suit Gundam
and
Ringo Seto (http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/xx_stellar/01.gif) from Angelic Layer.

Some of them are a bit more cosplayed than others, but I doubt I'll be recognized as quite a few of them. ^^

06-29-2006, 03:46 PM
To euphoriic: Oh really? I have no piccies to show cause its yet to be started...but I loved strawberry eggs...so I think it will be so much fun.

Characters that are not cosplay much or not at all are fun to dress up as! My daughter, husband, and I all went to Acen with characters that are rarely done.

In my gallery there is a Kigurumi picture of Mai Kawasumi from Kanon (the Chibi version) and a very cute to scale Rita from Suikoden IV. Going to make Shaorin from Mammotte Shugogetten next.

Rare cosplay...well lets see..

Someone mentioned Suboshi already, but I did him for Otakon one year in an outfit that I don't think i've seen anyone else do. its from the end of the series: (crappy crappy picture of it but its all I have..and it was also only my fourth costume XD)
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=112973

Scrapped Princess is something you don't see often, and I cosplayed as Chris from that:

Violinist of Hameln seems to have a bit of a rebirth lately XD But I cosplayed Sizer for one con:
http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=27316&member=12037

I just did a Seishirou from Tsubasa cosplay and because he is only in like..2 episodes I don't think many people have made this outfit yet:

Kantarou from Tactics:

My rule is to bring some reference material from the series so I can show people who I actually am.I do cosplay unknown people,namely Chaud from Megaman NT Warrior.

But then...cosplaying as a well-known character doesn't hurt.

Seventh_Sin
07-02-2006, 10:21 PM
Lessee. So far, my only completed cosplays are sins from FMA and Temari of Naruto. Not exactly obscure, but Wrath at least is still fairly rare (only two of him at ACen, including me.) I haven't seen many Sloths either.

Once I improve my skills, I intend to do some more rare-ish ones, possibly including but not necessarily limited to:
- Martel/Marta from FMA
- Kimimaro from Naruto (with bones! yay)
- Dominique the Cyclops from Trigun
- Sailor Star Healer and Sailor Aluminum Siren from Sailor Moon Stars

I have to say, the most undercosplayed is KOS-MOS in my opinion, though her first outfit is becoming really popular because it's easy. The 2nd was only done by Xenogirl, I mean, really well done as far as I can tell. And the 3rd one was only done by two people, Xenogirl and another couple. As for her 4th and final suit/gear, well, I want to be the first to do that, but most likely Xenogirl will beat me to it XD

KOSMOS for the win.

Also I hardly see any FF8 Quisties.

Yes, but I'm talking about her newest outfits. She has 4 of them throughout the 3 part series.

The 4th one, not done yet by anyone, and the 3rd only done by two people.
And the 2nd done, by a handful, but not many.
The first one, which I'm working on right now was done by maybe a room full of people.

All of her costumes are complex.

I'm currently working on a Keel from Tide-Line Blue for Anime Evolution in August. (My first crossplay, though you wouldn't know it from his outfit.) It's not too well-known yet, since it hasn't been licensed (I think). He's the one in the purple vest.

I'm also working on Mac from Blade for Barter (an original English language manga.) I really love her personality: mean, angry little blonde ninja girl. My friend Seii will be doing Ryuusuke, the main character in the series. Mac's the girl in red, Ryuusuke's the kid detective with the swords:

I'm doing Sheska from Fullmetal Alchemist for Sakura Con next year, her uniform...I haven't seen her before. And I'm also doing Mitsuki's granny from Full Moon wo Sagashite. Something about cosplaying an old lady really appeals to me; her wig's gonna be a blast to style.

Actually, any elderly characters, besides Master Roshi from Dragonball and Kaede from Inuyasha, are gonna be super-rare...I'd love to see a really good Genkai from Yu Yu Hakusho. She's one of the most kickass old ladies ever.

:) Hmm, I never do the REALLY popular characters, but I think its mostly coinscidence so far. There just isnt enough Ganjyu (Bleach) love in the world.
I wonder though if rarity isnt just a perception. I know someone who is going to do gunner Yuna for halloween and to her, wearing that to a party here (Halifax) would be one of a kind. Shes not into the cosplay scene, shes not aware how MANY Yunas there are, so really to her its rare. Even if she wore it to a Con shed probably be surprised to see how many others there were.

Just thinking about how people say they are 'tired' of all the 'insert well loved popular costume here'
I just find that people react well to the characters they like, and logically more popular characters=more people like them= more responses. And theres not many people in the world who put hours on hours of work into a costume and dont like getting responses. (note Im saying like, not 'want' or 'need' here ^_^) It can be a deciding factor in choosing to do one favorite costume over another.

I haven't seen ANY of sloth...

I have... 2 actually, they were at Anime Evolution 2005...

So far all my cosplays have been rare... I was the only Trowa Barton at Anime Evolution 2003, even then most people don't dress up as him in his turtle neck and tight jeans, and crying clown mask as I did...

At AE 2004 I was Seguchi Tohma from Gravitation, again the only one and in his green suit with a keyboard no less >> <<

Then I was Kurone from Yu Yu Hakusho Poltergiest Report(the feature film) Again I was the only one... and really I have seen VERY few people cosplay him... no one even recognized me... though I was glomped and called "The sex" by a few girls, which was a little scary >> <<.

One I would like to see done that no one seems to touch is Armstrong or Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist... Those are ones I haven't seen >> <<

I've done the green suit before. ^^ It was my first con and I wanted to do something other then the feather coat for the last day since I wore that outfit on Friday and Saturday. I had everything in my closet already if you can believe it...just had to buy the lime green shirt. This was like...2002 before Gravi became popular it seems XD I have about no good pictures of the outfit but I also carried around a keyboard. We had pretty much the whole cast that year.

There were both Scar and Armstrong at Sakura Con this year:
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643683 (on the right)
http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643629 (so many people taking his picture)

Some rarer cosplays:

Lone Wolf and Cub: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643674. His baby carraige was awesome, and you should have seen the doll he did up as Daigoro.
Maniwa (Paranoia Agent): http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643668. The young detective after he goes a little nuts.
Vandread cast: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643659 and http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643680. I love this series, but I never see anybody cosplay it. I'd love to do a Hibiki/Dita pair!
Fletcher and Russel Tringham (Fullmetal Alchemist): http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=641460
Speed Racer: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=641490. Old school cosplay rocks!
Tenma-chan and Harima (School Rumble): http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=641550. They're so perfect for the parts!
Eyeshield 21: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643686.
Yakitate Japan: http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=643687 and http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=641627.

So, these aren't me, just photos I took, but examples of some rarely-seen costumes. The rarest I've actually done so far is Lum (see ava or gallery) from Urusei Yatsura, but there's usually at least one at every con, so I wouldn't call her rare, just a little unusual (read: old school).

XD Yeah kind of...I had a green horse show riding jacket which is basically just a suit jacket. I had green dress pants that my mom had bought me and I had never worn (that actually matched the jacket to my surprise). I had the purple shirt that he wears underneath, I had shoes and I had the hat for my feathered coat version. It was much easier then I anticipated when i decided to do it XD

The biggest joy about cosplaying someone highly popular is that people are ALWAYS running up, taking your pictures and screaming "OMG!!! YOU'RE [insert popular character's name] I LOVE YOU! HAVE MY BABIES"

But, the joy of cosplaying rare, obscure characters is when those select people know who you are?

or is it?

I can't really say i've done anything rare (haven't done much at all yet) but my planned costumes are rare, but i do them for the love of the character. I don't seek them out because i figure there won't be another person at the con dressed like that. I do it because i LOVE the costume/character. I also assume (and HOPE) people don't choose the popular costumes because they'll get noticed.

Actually, i enjoy seeing all cosplay...but more importantly, the popular ones? Why? Because not everyone has created their costume the same way...all of them are different even if meant to be the same. Take Naruto for instance. Put a whole bunch of Naruto's together and you can have different shades of orange, different hair colors, different everything.

On the case of rare costumes, they are original and unique...but sometimes people are "afraid" to do the character after one person has done it in fear of saying they're copying another cosplayer. I've done this myself...But it's mostly when someone does an artbook image or something.

Ok, rant over. Back on topic

You should try the older anime. Retro stuff is AWESOME and you probably want find many people doing it nowadays. Previous posters have mentioned some great stuff, but i would personally love some Shadow Hearts cosplayers because...well...the designs are cool. And Chaos Legion (another PS2 game). I wanted to do costumes from there, but didn't (poopie!) because the game was only all-right...and i didn't finish it.

http://kazander.free.fr/pics/sh2/sh2.jpg -Shadow Hearts:Covenant (2nd game)

http://www.akella.com/ru/i_user/cl_sieg.jpg -Sieg: Chaos Legion
http://www.graph-academy.com/forum/files/elle-chaos-legion..._441.gif - Elle:Chaos Legion

Rare costumes I'm planning:
Yuzuriha Nekoi's tarot card (only 3 on this website i think that have that. Actually, i've planned a bunch of her artbook images which is ALWAYS rare! Stick to artbooks if you wanna be REALLY original) http://www.animeonline.de/series/x/tarot/tarot8.jpg -Tarot Yuzuriha
Asuka's 2nd player costume (from Tekken. People usually do her default and her 3rd player...but i haven't seen a 2nd)

07-08-2006, 02:46 AM
To Jessi:

Well...it's just that...also alot of times its the same costume bought off ebay....and I'm not saying its bad to be popular...I just find the ones less seen interesting. I guess its also based on what the individual likes.

But~ I like those character's costumes.

I've acctually heard of Shadow Hearts....I think the characters look cool

!*Jessi-Chan*!
07-08-2006, 03:00 AM
AiyaKasai: You're right, less seen ones are VERY interesting. I myself got tried on seeing Final Fantasy cosplay because
a.) i'm not a big fan of FF (dodges objects thrown at her) I didn't really like the games (*dodges*) even though it has good graphics, cinematic cut scenes, and characters...i still didn't too much like 'em
b.) there were SO many Yunas, Rikkus, and the like @ my first convention...It tramatized me. LOL!

And, about Shadow Hearts, I rather like the 3rd games (Into the New World) characters as well. I've never even played the game...becasue i can't find it in any game shop. Must be "rare" or something

I love anime/manga that are fairly well known, but have soooo many outfits, you can pick one that is not cosplayed often, and still be recognised. Like, Trinity Blood(there are lots of anime Abels, or that one outfit from the manga with the white scarf..but the one I did is not done a lot-at all. Still, people knew I was Abel because it's still the same character), Angel Sanctuary..even FF X-2. There are a thousand Thief Rikku's, but ever saw a Dark Knight(working on it..XD)? You can be original and people will still know who you are, it just requires a bit searching XD

I'm planning on cosplay Albel Nox from SC3. He's not exactly rare, but he's not one of those costumes you see all the time. It'd be nice to see more SC3 cosplays. =3 But maybe it's more common than I think, I've only been to two cons. =\
It'd also be nice to see more Samurai 7 cosplays, and not just Kirara. I want to see the Samurai! I plan on cosplaying some of them too. x3
Ah not to mention Drakengard, Xenosaga, Princess Ai...it'd be nice to see more cosplays from all these things. Lol, my list can go on and on. XD

That is incredibly neat. My sister rides so I can understand the jacket and then pants to match? Its like it was meant to be. You are the Tohma

07-08-2006, 04:47 PM
..even FF X-2. There are a thousand Thief Rikku's, but ever saw a Dark Knight(working on it..XD)?

My points exactly! SOOOO many theifs and gunners when there are other dresspheres w/ better costumes...even if they make take longer then the easier costumes. Dark Knights are cool, but i really want a Warrior Rikku or Yuna for my cosplay collection (and i actually don't see that many Warrior Paines, but i'm sure there are plenty)

07-08-2006, 05:36 PM
Yeah i dun mind FF cosplays...but usually everyone wants to be this specific Yuna or Riku....I think a Dark knight one would be cool.

I am a big fan of all the other FFs though.

As of right now I'm working on a Human female version of Shadow (sonic) As well as Dita for myself, and for my baby she will be a Moogle and a dark chao(sonic) I like to cosplay charaters that arn't done that much as well as getting my baby into cosplaying cause you never see under a year old cosplaying. Unless you've see my baby :)

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=265566

Usually I pick characters that I love the outfit for, even if that isn't my favorite character in the show. Sometimes my characters get chosen for me ^^;; (Like Orpheus from Meine Leibe, Byakko from Yami no Matsuei, Dilandau from Escaflowne, Kiba from Wolf's Rain)

For Sizer, I just -had- to do the full length wings. For Kantarou, I just loved the onmyouji outfit. As far as more popular cosplays...well I adore the Uchihas so Sasuke and Itachi were definite cosplays for me. Bleach is an obsession so even though I adore Ishida, I love Ichigo's bankai outfit (and I'm a huge Ichigo fan too ~_^)

For me though, I have to love the outfit in order to do the cosplay. I don't care if no one recognizes me, as long as I get to run around for at least one day wearing something fun.

Of course sometimes, even though people don't know who they are, they appreciate the costume. That is usually what happens with Sizer and Kantarou ^^;; They have no clue who I am, but they just had to get a picture XD

As long as you like what you are wearing though, it doesn't matter if anyone knows who you are ^_^

Oh--and while we're at it, let me take a picture of you anyway ^^;;;" I like to meet others with the same interests as I do such as Ragnarok Online(currently working on costumes for this) but it is so frustrating when nobody in your area knows who you are, even when you cosplay something most gamers recognize. <<;

Well its going to be a major problem for my sister when she goes because she is being Yuki from haruhi Suzumiya...and NO ONE in america knows that...unless they are unltament anime fans. It's extremely popular in Japan..but not as popular on cosplay.com. Well even knowing this my sister really wants to go as her...because Yuki is her all time fave character..and she thinks it'll be fun being in her cotsume.

I think it is kind of frustrating when people don't recognize your character but that never stops me from taking pictures of other people who I don't recognize either but still admire their outfits. I've never had anyone come up to me and ask what series you're from though.

When I went to AX as Vergil from DMC, like nobody knew who I was, save for like three or four people. When I changed into my Bleach outfit, I got more picture requests and recognition in like ten mintues than I did for the whole time (about an hour) when I was Vergil.

Strangely enough, I only saw like two other Renjis (from Bleach) during the whole time I was there but like almost everyone recognized the character though.

It's weird because Haruhi Suzumiya, seem like it's pretty big over here in the UK; there's even a ending sequence dance skit being planned for the next convention i'm going to :)

I think i may have seen a dawn Alucard once; i can't remember where though. But i still have never seen an Dracula/Alucard you'd have thought the hellsing cosplayers would want to cosplay as many forms of alucard as possible XD

I've never even played Devil May Cry 3 and i know who Vergil is O.o it's weird that no-one reconsied you Wah Mei

Oh and Tenucha your Billy costume is sweet *_* it's hard to think that even with that massive tattoo on your arm you still weren't reconised, i'd have certainly asked for a photo ^^

I've been considering some cosplay for next year and i'd really like to be Shishido Baiken (http://geocities.com/spigbebop/images/baiken.jpg) from Vagabond (the ole god of death himself ^^) but i seriously doubt anyone will reconise it so i don't know if i'll do it :( it's the same with my other ideas (such as Armblast (http://geocities.com/spigbebop/images/armblast.jpg)/ Cesario (http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a9/manjou/cesario.jpg) from Kiddy Grade or Shizu (http://kino.ming-ling.net/artwork/char-shizu.jpg) from Kino's Journey or even Momonosuke (http://hugereviews.com/Anime/Visuals/Requiem5.jpg) from Reqiuem from the Darkness) practially every character i think of is likely just to be ignored, it's really annoying, why is it i only ever like the obscure characters XD

Huh...I see Albels left and right on the internet...but I have yet to see one in person. I fear that no one will know who I am if I ever crossplay him. T_T It's not that I'm dying for attention over the things I do, I just wish that at least 1 person would know who I am after all the hard work I put into my outfits.

And yeah, A dark Knight X-2 girl would be cool to see. I was going to do D.K Yuna but because of how much I hated the game I lost my interest in it. I would still love to see someone cosplay them though.

I'm tired of seeing Soras. Sure, he's great and all, but how about trying a different outfit? I have seen only 1 halloween town sora. Where is the love?

I would KILL to see some Vampire Game cosplayers, I as going to cosplay Ishtar, but I didn't have the time so I dropped it.

I wish people would cosplay .Hack//Sign more. It makes me sad to see such a great series not get much love. I mean, I see them on the internet all the time, but again, i haven't seen any in person.

Come on texas cosplayers!!! Please have more of a variety next convention!!!

I'm going to be doing a Krad cosplay in 2008, but next years convention I'm doing Takuto from Full Moon wo Sagashite. I should be done with his hat soon but the ears are being a pain...

Well, I think I vary between the extremely obscure and the very well-known. o_o

Currently, I think my most "rare" one is Jouya Kanou from "GetBackers." He's only in the last seven episodes T_T

I'm seriously one of like... three. In the world. ;_; Kanou needs more love T_T

And, for surprisingly even MORE obscure, I hope to soon cosplay Bocca from Melody of Oblivion. As far as that series goes, I've never seen personally, but found online: 1 Melody and 1 Toune. No Bocca. D: And 2 for the whole series? It breaks my heart. ;o;

I think my rarest for anime characters are Tima (final form) and Rock from Metropolis. Haven't seen many Metropolis cosplayers at all. ;_;

I love being the not-so-popular to who-are-you-again? characters! I'm being Albel as well for I-CON26 (with his ultimate weapon :)), and last Halloween I was Ice Kirby. I also plan on doing the archtype KOS-MOS from Xenosaga I (the silvery one that killed Kevin and other people in Vector? Kekekeke!)

And hello, I would love to see a Zoids cosplayer here and there. I mean it did get some love on Toonami, so people have been bound to see it (I am a Chaotic Century junkie XD; ).

I also want to see more old-school Final Fantasy characters, particularly from Final Fantasy V! And of course Kirby, lol...

Huh...I see Albels left and right on the internet...but I have yet to see one in person. I fear that no one will know who I am if I ever crossplay him. T_T It's not that I'm dying for attention over the things I do, I just wish that at least 1 person would know who I am after all the hard work I put into my outfits.

Funny that =P I'm gonna cosplay Abel at some point here, probably AFest if not Onicon.

Though I hear ya about recognizition of characters. When I cosplayed Rip from Hellsing for the first time, all of 13 people at Akon recognized me, and 7 of those 13 were folks that came to the con with me <_< However, because of the gun, I got massive photo ops, and a whole lot more people left the con knowing the character than did coming in...so there's a bit of an advantage to cosplaying obscure people. Con-goers tend to want to know who you're cosplaying, especially if it's a snazzy costume like Abel's. Heck, that's how -I- got into TB costumes. They're so so damn awesome XD

I have yet to see a CCS cosplayer as one of the clow cards.

I really would like to cosplay the "other" Syaoran from Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE for my next convention. It's simple yet nobody has cosplayed him, most likely because he wasn't truly revealed until later on in the manga and hasn't even made his proper debut in the anime.

I also want to do obscure Fai costumes from the same series, much like Kat Murz's Spirit Town costume - awesome, by the way! :D
