Hello, I am a cosplayer/crossplayer in Washington State (Seattle/So King County area).
I am looking to start a group, not really joinan existing one..It's easier to start one for me because my cosplays aren't the typical ones you see in most groups (meaning not extremely popular stuff), so it seems starting a fresh group is best.
The cosplays I currently have on hand:
-Sayuri Kurata (Kanon, not currently finished, in progress)
-Stocking Anarchy (Panty & Stocking. Right now I have an OC version, I'll have the normal one)
-Sweet Lolita coord (Not cosplay, but still..It's the dress used for that Stocking cosplay)
-Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy VII. Original version. But It is also up for sale)
-Elesis [Pyro Knight] (Elsword, not currently finished, in progress)
Sora [Limit Form] (Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+, need shoes still, other then that though, done)
I at least would like a group that did these..Or would do these with me. I will obviously also do things group wise if you are planning things or have things you want group stuff for too.
Next cosplays for ideas of what else I want to do for group stuff:
-Mitsuki Nase (Kyoukai no Kanata)
-Mew and Sabrina (Pokemon)
-Mikuru or Tsuruya or Ryouko (Haruhi Suzumiya, Yea 3 different characters)
Series I would like to do group stuff with for sure:
-Kyoukai no Kanata
There are others but yea..These are for sure..
Series I am interested in and would be willing to do (I have characters in mind for myself already for all the following series'):
-kanata no kyoukai
-Ask about others..There are more, but I can't think of them right now..Like..A lot more..
Sadly, like anyone, I also have some seires that I will not do, I do not like the following series' and will not cosplay from them, I don't mind if you do on your own though:
-Bleach (This is a mayube, I don't hate it, I just don't watch it)
-There are I think a couple more, but I will remember them if someone brings them up..
I do have a couple little requirements for wanting to make a group..
-I ask that you be 18 or older (I am 26, so I don't wanna be hanging out with teenagers)
-No drug users (including pot). I do not like it, and hope you respect that.
-Be open to series that aren't the most super popular thing..That's the one thing I noticed about most groups..Most people only want to do the most popular series' out..There are plenty of non popular cosplays that will get just as much, or even MORE atttention..
Conventions we would do these group cosplays at:
(However, at Akicon, I have an Artist Alley table so it will be after we close up shop and for photoshoots)
Possible future things we can do:
-Cosplay skit contests
-Group ccsplay costume contests
-Youtube videos of fun-ness
-Anything else really..
Now onto the BIGEST part of this..ANYONE in a group with me, no matter what, get's free labor on anything I need to help make..Need a prop? Maybe a piece of the cosplay, or accessory? Get me materials and I'll make it with no labor charge, AT ALL. That is, as long as it's something I CAN make..Though, that's a pretty big range..^_^
Also, a big thing that I think makes people not want to join a group..Let me get this point out of the way..There is no "leader" or "head" in this a goup I help strt. I want to start an equal group were everyone has the same status and no one can "go over someone's head". Everyone will get chances to give imputs and suggestions, and everyones topics will be talked about. Sounds pretty fair to me..This includes myself. I may be the one to start this and get things going, but that's all I am. I will not consider myself to be "the group leader".
Anyway, Long post, sorry about that lol If you are interested feel free to comment, PM me or even email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
