Any American Cartoons Cosplayers?

I think i'm the only person left in the world who does American Cartoon cosplays. I don't mean Spiderman (thats American Comic stuffs.. classics). I mean something like Xiaolin Showdown, or Ben 10. Basically anything Cartoon Network.

Oh, and i despise Ben 10. Target replaced all Xiaolin Showdown merchandise with Ben 10. Now i have to make my own Monkey Staff. TT_TT

I'm dressing as Jack Spicer. So what are ya'll dressing up as?

And anyone going to the AX In long Beach?

There are lots of people doing Avatar: the Last Airbender cosplays right now; personally I've done Fairly Odd Parents, and will be doing the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy in the future.

I know someday I want to make Tak and Gaz from Invader Zim and then Devi (JTHM, I feel sick) and Lenore, but those 2 are comic book characters. I know there were loads of others that I was thinking of, but I forget now.

Made a Quinn Morgendorffer (Daria mid 90s cartoon on MTV)costume last year, but don't have photos yet.

Also working on a Lady Jaye costume (G.I. Joe), have the wig just need time to get to a military surplus store. Trying to figure out how to do the black cat from the Pepe Le Pew cartoons.

Ooh, and Adult Swim cosplayers, too-- Venture Bros., Metalocalypse, ATHF, etc. I don't see that many from things like Family Guy, the Simpsons, Futurama, etc. but maybe that's because they're older-- although my fiance is DETERMINED to do a Bender cosplay someday.

You know what you don't see a lot of? Book cosplays. I guess we've been seeing Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings since before the movies came out, but from books there aren't movies of? Scarce, I suppose mostly because unless there's definite artwork to reference from, many people would feel daunted by the possibility of not being recognized.

That said, I give MAJOR MAJOR PROPS to the folks who are cosplaying Dragonlance, Discworld, and all those other literary greats that haven't been raped by Hollywood yet.

I will be doing Tula from Pirates of Dark Water for Otakon 2007. This is an older show from the very early 90s, so younger people here might not know about it, lol. Looking for a group from the same series, so let me know if anyone is interested.

I did an original rave/femme version of Zim (Invader ZIM) for Otakon '05. ...I'm actually going to wear it again this Otakon, too, accompanied by an EGL version of GIR. ^_^

I cosplayed as Gaz several years ago. I also want to make a Daria costume for Halloween. I've got a Last Unicorn costume now(Though some people consider it anime for some odd reason). One day I'd like to have myself a Catra(She-Ra) costume too.

There's a fair amount vintage American cartoon cosplay out there at cons if you go to the right ones: Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, G.I. Joe, Thundercats, and heck even Transformers.

Oh, and Penny there are a few Discworld movies, but yeah they're not Hollywood. I've got Wyrd Sisters and apparently a live action region 2 Hogfather dvd just came out! I'm going to see if my boyfriend can find a downloadable version since a region 2 dvd wouldn't do me any good... And my real point is: My dad has been wanting to put together a Death costume for a while now(complete with Death of Rats), and if he gets that going I think I'll make Susan to go with him.

You'd make a great Susan. Joe wants to do Sam Vimes (and is now kicking himself for not buying a PERFECT helmet when he saw it), and I'd do an Angua if I thought anyone would recognize me without a Carrot.

The BBC mini-series of Gaiman's Neverwhere was pretty good, so I'm just hoping that Stardust isn't ruined for me when it comes out in theaters. I already learned that Walden Media has DESTROYED all the charm and wonder of Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising and now I'm merely praying that it isn't a completely awful movie, to boot. Of course from that you could only probably manage a Dark Rider costume if you wanted anybody to recognize you, and even then you'd be pressing your luck.

Aaaaand now I'm just totally off the topic of American cartoons. Sorry.
