You know I'll be there. Love Wonder Festival. Now that the event has become so popular with cosplayers I think I'll try and get to the dressing room a little earlier so I can maximize my wandering around and staring at stuff time.

As usual I'm going to cater to the hobby crowd, so I have two new summer friendly uniforms in the works. Italian 185ª Divisione paracadutisti "Folgore" (North African campaign) and German Sanitätswesen der Luftwaffe (North African campaign).

I can't go now... I'm heading back to the US in two weeks for job hunting and won't get back until just before comiket.

I miss cosplaying, haven't had a decent costume, and I'm afraid stuff I would wear here wouldn't compare to all the other great ones I see. That and having dark skin makes me nervous about what to cosplay.

Never stopped the Japanese from cosplaying characters with blond hair and blue eyes. Colour of skin, ethnicity, gender; no one cares in the Japanese cosplay scene. Seeing as 90% of all anime/manga/game characters are more or less "Caucasian" in appearance, the cosplay selection would be pretty small in Japan if people actually cared.

People go to events like wonder fest to relax and have fun. And remember, we're all foreigners. The Japanese see that first and foremost. Try to use your "foreignness" to your advantage in cosplay.
