I'd love to see the Beatles barbershop quartet though! I can just imagine that stopping a large portion of a convention in its tracks to sing along lol.
Oh, but that would be half of the fun. Now I just have to find three other suckers...

i've cosplayed as Steve Harris from Iron Maiden, i was onstage and playing air bass along with "Run to the Hill"
also did one of Paul Stanley earlier in the year, was onstage playing air guitar and singing "I Was Made for Lovin' You"
cosplaying actual people is a very fun thing to do, especially when it's someone you idolize and can mimic easily

I did a lot of J-Rock cosplay when I was in HS so it's always seemed fairly acceptable to me to cosplay real people. If they have a notable "image" or stage persona, I don't see where it's different than cosplaying a character. There seems to be a nice amount of it at my favorite convention, Dragon*Con. Axl Rose. KISS. Dee Snyder from Twisted Sister. I saw Joan Jett this year.

I've done Gaga.
I'm currently working on Ziggy Stardust.
I'm also cosplaying as Russell Brand and I like to have fantasies of someone cosplaying Katy Perry in one of her California Girls outfits with me.

I'd also love to do Adam Ant or find a partner to do Mick Jagger and David Bowie from the Dancing In The Streets video.


YOU! You're awesome. And if you're ever in Texas, look me UP! You can totally do "Under Pressure" with me! It would be great to do a duet instead of a solo for once.


Yeah, I do a little drag. Mostly as Freddie. I do "I'm Going Slightly Mad" with a Freud sock puppet and "Fat Bottomed Girls."

John Denver is actually part of two humorous (but totally respectful-of-the-dead) remix routines with other drag kings.

And I'd totally be your Mick Jagger. Lol.

And you want to do a Beatles costume?! DUDE. I want to do Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band costumes SO badly, but I need a John and a Ringo. (I'd be best at George, I think.)

Oh, and props to whoever did Dee Snider. Always kind of wanted to get a Frank Zappa, and a Dee Snider to go with my John Denver, simply so we could have "F*CK CENSORSHIP! DOWN WITH THE PMRC! 1984" signs.

OH SNAP! I just made an Elton John cosplayer out of my best friend! We're going to be hilariously gay at A-Kon.

(And The Boyfriend has no choice but to go as Liberace.)

There have been lots of people who attend anime conventions who cosplay as real people. I see a TON of visual kei/jrock musician cosplays at every convention. xD
I would consider cosplaying as a Kpop singer or something, definitely. 8D

I am now wishing that I was an Amazonian model-thin black woman because I would soooooo love to do Grace Jones. If I can (a) ever get super fit again and (b) figure out how to pull it off in a way that reads while still being respectful, I'm gonna be all up over that bizness.

I'm so glad I'm not the only person who's wanted to cosplay Queen Elizabeth II. She had an awesome purple dress and hat a few months ago that I want to make.

I just recently cosplayed as Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance. I did a casual school boy version from "I'm not okay (I promise)" and Three Cheers for Revenge tour. It was a lot of fun and kinda weird because people had such a strong reaction to it xD

I have some pictures in my gallery if you want to take a look x3

I want to cosplay it again, and possibly do "Desolation Row" Gerard and/or Mikey x3

I thought of cosplaying as Angelina Jolie but wouldn't that kind of dress up fall under the category of doubles ? either way I'd love to try it out sometime XD

I've got my heart set on cosplaying Elisabeth of Bavaria, and I have a friend who's keen on Ludwig II of Bavaria.

Holy crap, that's AWESOME.
There must be photos when this happens.

Did you know that there are TWO musicals (both in German) about Ludwig II?

I didn't know! Are there multiple recordings of each, like there are for Elisabeth?

We'll certainly have some pictures done eventually, but making the costumes comes first. ^^ And that alone will take an enormous amount of time.
I'd actually love to find a photographer, but it would have to be for some event that we're both going to be at and such.

So most of the entries on this topic are really unrelated to my project...
Are historical figure cosplays really uncommon, then?
