Well this topic just occurred to me in the brink of having browsed around the Lightning -FFXIII cosplayers Gallery and I thought about something,there's many popular characters being cosplayed,some folks might even think the characters are being over cosplayed...
What I'm referring to as a theme I guess is,even though people end up cosplaying the same character at some point,they all focus their character/photoshoot on a different aspect about the character...
without having any spoilers and veering this topic too much into the game,
The cast of FFXIII all have their own of epiphanies to each of their situations way ahead into the game,and I want to focus my character and photo shoot in the theme of "after the epiphany" so to speak...
Altrus' post is the best way to describe it :
cosplaying prince Zuko [the character in a certain time line] vs just cosplaying prince Zuko
Your contribution doesn't have to be "After the fact" ....it can be ANYWHERE in the character's time line ...or even if you don't take this into consideration when it comes to your cosplay...this is what my topic is about
p.s if by any chance there's an existing thread like this one please point me in the right direction
another note: if by any chance you guys think this thread should be moved to the photography section instead thats fine too !
