Okay, I am a cosplayer who cares about my fellow cosplayers out there, especially the newbies.(we don't want to dishearten them with negative thinking now do we?)

I think the best thing to do for originality is the youtube thing, but I personally could care less if a million people do one thing because- as it was mentioned before- they could all attack it differently.

It gets a tad bit hard to do musical skits or yaoi/shounen-ai skits that haven't been done already because you aren't the only one who likes the pairing/gets the match up of a song. This thread is probably enough to make people blow their brains out with finding a skit to do that isn't classified as "Overdone" by people. It isn't difficult to come up with something no one else has tried, I'm not saying that. But (especially with the generalizations I've seen throughout this thread) you can't rule out a whole topic as OVERDONE.

There comes a time when you have to just look at your idea and say:

1.Is it over done?
2. Do I care?
3. Is it made/organized/practiced to the best of my ability?
4. Am I happy doing it?

Cuz you can look through youtube for days, find something that hasn't been done yet, but not be thrilled with doing it.
Okay? Cosplay is here to be fun anyways. And I've made sure that I always do- during masquerades or not.

^w^

It's not really any certain songs, it's just random dancing in general.
I hate when their having some cute, funny skit and then they just start dancing out of NO where..

BUMP!

When talking about dancing, and seeing that 2011-12 seems to be the year of the Tangled/Rapunzel cosplay, there are exceptions to this rule, such as this:

I like dancing skits BUT i get seriously bored when their to long. No offense to anyone but if your doing a dance skit for more than 2:30 PLZZZZ have some kinda of WOW effect added in there. have some stage ninja bring props out or something but to just see CarramellDansen, Gee, or anyother song danced can get boring.


Im not an elitest just a person who watches skits numerously and such.

Carramell Dansen, definatly.

And one thing that annoys me are those death note ones where the person cosplaying L constantly accuses The person cosplaying Light/the audience/himself/anything that moves of being kira for no apparent reason, eg. "You just breathed, therefore there's a 46.04683735% chance that you're Kira!". Usually followed by either a dance routine or L chasing Light around screeching "KIIIRRRRAAAA!!!".

Thank god the death note cosplays have gone down a little. I like the show, but messing up your hair or wig and putting on jeans and a t-shirt is just a cop-out when it comes to cosplay.

Ah, me and my friends were planning on doing a Final Fantasy group dancing to "Lucifer" by Shinee, but after reading this thread I'm afraid we'll either be thought of as boring/overdone based on the idea that it's just a group mindlessly dancing to a song, lipsyncing in all.

The video is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dww9UjJ4Dt8&ob=av2e and this is the dance version we're using to learn it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-yNq3i1KCk We are more than likely going to edit to make it both more simple and more in character for the cosplays.

And I agree with almost everything that's been said. Caramell dansen is fine when your in a corner of the con with your little boom box, having fun and keeping out of everyone's way, but don't make everyone wanting to see good skits have to suffer. Also, at my very first con, there was a group that did a skit that was actually called "The Random Skit" and it was... just... GAH! So many over used things and it was so senseless and pointless and nothing matched anything. I think it ended with Kagome telling Inuyasha to sit, and suddenly like, 10 fangirls jumped on stage, tackled him, then just as suddenly ran off stage. And it was horrible.

I don't know how much this plagues other cons, but the cons by me always seem to have at least 3 skits that are choreographed dancing to Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.

It was cool the first time and it has since been beat into the ground....

wanted to put my idea out hear. i just read all 36 pages and they have been very helpful but a little saddening. i have done and participated in some not so good skits and hope to improve.

my skit ideas are for kingdom hearts because thats my cosplay. i will do a naruto one after i think of a nice kyuubi one.

for my ideas for kingdom hearts is one is a dramatic skit with sora and riku. pretty much sora has second thoughts about this new quest to save the people that are hurting. like he feels he could fail and riku would reassure him. its great since its a transition into the new game that comes out in march and the skit will be in feb.

another idea is a dance central skit. its different then ddr and stuff because since dancing would make sense. a plot is this yet to be determined

what do you guys think?

I have this uncanny feeling that 2012 will be year of the arrow to the knee skits. Seeing as the arrow to the knee joke is already getting old, I would advise not to incorporate them into your skit.
