Since it's Yume Nikki's 10th anniversary today, I figure it's the perfect time to resurrect this topic (at least for this post).
My very first cosplay was a genderbent variation of Madotsuki from Yume Nikki, first worn at a college Halloween block party. I had since grown attached to this costume, having worn it for all of Anime Expo and Pacific Media Expo last year. This year's Anime Expo, I will be wearing it alongside my Natsumi Andoh costume, this time as a crossplay (with a skirt instead of pants); I'm excited for the reactions to both.
I plan on cosplaying as Aya from Mad Father at a con I'm going to. My friend is going to be Dio and my mom is going to be Maria. c:
Before I was a cosplayer, I was a fan artist. I would draw my favorite characters and sell the pieces at art auctions.But once I discovered cosplay, it was like, 'I don't have to draw my favorite characters, I can become my favorite characters.'
Ah, a couple of them are definitely on my "I'd like to do in the future" - mostly Aki and Ib. Aki I'd love to do because I could look psychotically at the camera with a baseball bat. And Ib, I just feel I rather look like her, albeit perhaps a bit older. XD
I was really hoping I could get Ib done soon as I have a lot of red fabric, alas, they're remnants and the shapes are too awkwardly cut to allow for a pleated skirt. D:
