Forgotten Folk...The Rare, The Odd and the Inbetween

Oo... I forgot to make this over here...>>...Thread is also at the Youmacon boards...

Welcome the thread for "Forgotten Folk...The Rare, The Odd and the Inbetween"

For those who are probably wondering what this is all about, I am looking entertaining the idea of organizing a shoot for all the odd costuming folks planning to attend Youmacon. I'm already doing a event/gathering like this for Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) in September, so this will be my second run of this type of gathering.

When I say all the odd folk, I am referring to gathering all those who are doing...

Rare Character Cosplays: Stuff you rarely see if at all/might see one of at entire con, IE: Philemon from Persona, only one doing an anime or game character, etc...especially if from a series not common anymore...or one of them characters from something newer, but underrated... like say that obscure side character from episode 3 of a series... that ya never hear from the rest of said series...XD
This is basically stuff you almost never see anymore (sometimes due to waning fandom), or even stuff that you hardly see... like say persons doing a Kefka. You hardly see one, so usually they are given the "Can't Walk 5ft Without Flashbulbs" syndrome....

Original Character Designs/Concepts: Ever had that OC that you been dying to give the light of day or have reason to create? Well now you can show 'em off! Whether its a OC for a RP forum/chat or a character you creating for a fanfic...

Steampunk: There's usually not many of you guys around at the cons so heres a chance to join others as well as some other stuff you rarely see

Lolita: Sweet, Gothic, Punk, Pirate.... whatever the lolita off your cute and fascinating self...

Maids: Another group not seen often, so come and join us as well....

Non Canon and Odd/Alternate Designs: Ever wanted to do some thing odd to a character, like dress Sasuke in drag? Or just do a totally original or unusual design that you could see a character wearing...Or are you doing that rare alternate version of a characters costume from a series' artbook?
IE: This icludes stuff like Aymano designs, artbook variations of a character costume of a series, etc

J-Pop and J-Rock: Are you doing some J-rock or pop fashion and want a place to gather with others who are doing similar, or even just come join a bunch of others who are all doing rare, or unusual costumes.

Pirates and Ninjas (No One Piece/Naruto): I know we always have a few of you guys wandering around, so why not come join us for a little fun. Sorry, don't got any rum Pirates, but I'm sure we can have some good fun none the less...XD

The idea I figured was to allow for all those folks who are doing those characters or costumes that either rarely do shoots or gatherings as since there is a very small number of folks doing them, to get the chance to at least gather together and at least possibly get a few pictures of them with other rare cosplays/characters and such.

So if you would be interested in a idea like this, then feel free to post and discuss or just add your two cents....

I probably will go to this. I'm making Adell's mom from Disgaea 2. I picked such a minor character, but it's okay I love how bitchy she is. XD For some reason Disgaea's popularity has died. x-x So I'll be there. ^_^

This was a really neat idea. I'm just sad that I didn't make it in time for this photo shoot.

Due to a relatively decent turnout for this, barring any reason for me to not be able to attend Youma in 2010, this gathering will return next year. Pictures from the first gathering will be up sometime this week...

I would have gone, but my group was still getting their badges, and I didn't have my Glyphs done or my makeup on. I was the only Castlevania Cosplayer that I knew of, too.
Current Planned Cosplays: Reika Kuze (Fatal Frame 3), Gijinka Umbreon (Pokemon)
