Talking Cuz we're such crazed fans..

Any of you try hard to replicate or act out stuff
from games for photos?

I'm such a Final Fantasy fan that like I...went to Las Vegas to get photos in themed areas that look like parts from games!

For instance..here's me as Squall..and I'm supposed
to be in Dollet (but it's actually the Venetian hotel).
Taken by Lionel back in 2000.

I know for a fact that Japanese cosplayers do this..
and I think it's really kewl. Like here's Kaie
from URAN cosplaying as Alucard..in front of some castle..

I was just in Vegas a few days ago too.. but I didn't
have time to cosplay that time. I think the next time
i go..I'm gonna try to wear Ruby heart (the pirate
girl from Marvel VS capcom) and take
pics at Treasure Island..hopefully the staff wont' mind!

hmm and maybe I'll wear Cloud to Excalibur's Midway
area.. cuz it kinda looks like the Wonder Square from the Gold
Saucer.

it seems like the tourists and staff members of Vegas
Hotels..dont' care if we wear costumes..whoo hoo.
There should be a cosplay con in Vegas.

Actually, yeah, I have done this a few times.

When I did Claude from Star Ocean, I used the forest nearby and took pictures lying down near a tree. Just like the beginning of the game in the Shingo Forest. XD Then my sis and I took a bunch of pics as various Star Ocean characters with their favorite foods and stuff.

Oh! And for Nei (Phantasy Star 2), I took a bunch of photos to resemble her death sequence from the game. Hehe, I was so proud of them at the time.

I trudged around DC with three wings on my back to take Angel Sanctuary pictures at the Washington Cathedral, and even had people call the cops on our group for being "weird".

I think I qualify for being hardcore after that! LOL.

Getting into random battles is the way forward in RPG cosplaying....
Celine? Didn't you replicate FF Tactics by localising yourself on a grid pattern?

Ooh....and I only wore Vyse at Otakon for half the day and I should have taken pictures on the ship that is docked in the inner harbour...damn...there was also a lighthouse like building or even by the submarine.so many opportunities for a pirate but not taken....

Hmmm.....Grandia 2...if only there were some exhibit that lets you walk around inside parts of the human body...i could be doing battle with a giant lung....

Unfortuanately for me.. the area I live in, Boulder, is all nature-freak inhabited so it doesn't work for most of the characters I've done. o.O;

But I'm -going- to find a tree to pose in as Touya.. ::Giggle.::

This is kinda twisted. . .but I really want to go to a graveyard and take a picture next to a gravestone in Terra. You know, that scene at the end of the first half of the game (I don't want to spoil it). I just have to make sure there's absolutely no one around, then snap quickly ^^;;.

And at AX there was this mini lake/river, complete with pretty trees and a bridge, that reminded me of part of Himeno's backyard, where she first became Sound Pretear. I took pictures but they didn't come out ;_;.

I want to go to a graveyard to take pictures of OAV Rosiel, leaning on a tombtone like in the show...

But I can't find any non-fenced-in Graveyards... and I can't really sneak around with three wings on my back. X___X

Thanks to the Hellsing booth, I did get a really nice "Graveyard" shot...

> I took pictures but they didn't come out ;_;.

I took pics of Ramirez there, it was horribly hard not to have random people in the background so it only earned me vast amounts of frustration.

That's right! Yay for the Otakon dance... uh, grid thing. ^_^

*imagines epic photo session in the intestines of Valmar* Go to a museum with anatomy exhibit, and you'd have so many opportunities.
