Gintama 2013 - The Truth about STRAWBERRRY MILK

Well, first I wrote this rivetng speech praising Gintama and encouraging cosplayers to take up the flag of displaying their love for this great series, but then I realized no one wanted to read all that so this is what you get instead. XD

Wanted to see who else out there would be cosplaying from Gintama and who they'd be coming as. Maybe arrange a meet up or photoshoot or something cause Gintama doesn't get enough love in the US cons.

Here's the cosplayers we've got so far!

Abuto or Isaburo Sasaki - BetwixtReality
Kamui or Fem Okita Sougo - Hyunai
Sacchan - Crosschord (maybe)
Otaku Toshi - simbass
Kagura - simbass' friend (maybe)
Hijikata - simbass' friend (maybe)
Gintoki - Zubban

Sunday at 1pm at the 3rd floor terrace.

Omg. You have no idea how happy this post made me!
I haven't been to Otakon since 2006-7 ish (such a long time!)
But I'm hoping to go with a couple of friends this 2013.

And I've been itching to cosplay as Kamui but after researching the past Otakon pics I didn't see much Gintama cosplayers ):

But hopefully there will be a few this year?

Yay Kamui! XD I'm not sure if my Kamui will be there or not so if not I may need to follow you around the con cause you can't be Abuto without a Kamui. (Also not trying to be creepy with that as just a disclaimer. I won't go Kondo on you, I am big on respecting personal boundaries at cons.)

There seem to be a few each year but only a handful. I saw a time skip Kagura, a Gin, and a Gin in a tutu this past year and I think my friends saw another Kagura but that's it. (And I did Shinpachi.) I know another year there was a small group with a Ginpachi-sensei, Okita, Kagura, and I think a Sa-chan. Overall there's waaaaay too few of us. XD

---Edit: And after just talking about personal boundaries I creeper to your tumblr and freak out over the music. XD WHERE DID YOU GET THAT PIANO VERSION OF THE PSYCHO PASS OPENING AND CLOSING?! Huuuuge fan of that show, my favorite of the new stuff. Working on my Shinya cosplay now!

LOL
I found some amazing covers on youtube~
And hurrah! I just got my friend to watch Gintama so she might be cosplaying as a Gintama character at Otakon but she doesn't know which yet. But she loves the Shogun episodes for sure.

XDDD The Shogun episodes are hilarious! Their some of my favorites! On Facebook there is a person who says they might do Nobume and can maybe bring a friend with them as well do do Gintama. I've got my Kamui who may/may not be at Ota but if she does come she cosplays as Okita and Kamui and is working on Otsu slowly so maybe would have that by con and decide to wear one of those costumes.

I've been trying to get more of my East Coast friends into Gintama but it hasn't really taken root with them as much as I would hope.

Now I'm tempted to remake Sacchan. I haven't cosplayed her in years.

Haha~ I am planning on being Nobume Imai and if my cousin goes, I am hoping to cosplay as Tsukuyo since she loves her so much <3 Originally me and her were planning on doing Tsukuyo but her in the normal attire and me in her awesome and pretty kimono thing. But then I fell in love with Nobume....ILL HAVE DONUTS LOL

Yay! I see Gintama is coming back again =) Glad to see the large number of replies.=) I'll try to get my Kagura and Hijikata to come as well. I'll most likely have my Otaku Tosshi.

I don't know yet if she will be, coming at all let alone as Otsu or instead Kamui or Okita. There's quite a long time between now and Ota for stuff to happen. I'll try to keep the topic informed but probably she won't even be close to a decision till a month or two before the con.

And actually I knew you were the Ginpachi-sensei! XD I only knew about that group at all cause I saw your photos on Facebook of you and your group hanging out. (Tis EJ XD)

MOAR GINTAMA QUOTES!



Listen up!
Let’s say you drink too much strawberry milk, and have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
But it’s cold outside your bed.
You don’t want to get up, but the urge to urinate is just too strong!
You make up your mind to go!
You run to the bathroom, stand in front of the toilet, and let loose!
You think that all your life has led to this moment!
But then you realize!
It isn’t the bathroom, you’re still in bed!
That feeling of lukewarm wetness spreads like wildfire!
But you don’t stop! You can’t stop!
That’s what I’m talking about!
THAT’S THE TRUTH OF THE STRAWBERRY MILK!
DO YOU GET IT!?

Anyone been reading the latest chapters? I wonder if we'll see some genderbends this year after this arc! XD
