This thread has been dead for a while so please forgive me! I usually see many Touhou cosplayers at cons so it still seems to be pretty popular, am I right? Is anyone planning a cosplay?

I'm working on Rinnosuke myself, so if anybody has any tips, specially for the wig, they would be greatly appreciated!

It's always exciting to see interest in Touhou and Touhou characters being cosplayed, even at smaller cons there are one or two walking around.

I was just thinking about this thread the other day cause I'm working on my first touhou cosplay! :3 Been wanting to cosplay Yuuka Kazami forever and just decided for Katsucon to make her.

And definitely, I think even smaller cons will still have couple touhou cosplays running around.

And viveeh, for Rinnosuke's wig, I think cutting the wig in layers will achieve the hair style the best.

Yes I agree, and I think I've found a great wig to start with! It was a hard time for me picking a color I like because I wanted a specific shade of silver.

I've seen Touhou characters in every con I've gone to so I hope I run into some when I cosplay Rinnosuke. I hope I don't get unlucky and be the only one. I just want to see the people's faces when they recognize my character, it's always amusing. XD

Oh, haha, I see! I thought you meant like styling. 8D But totally agree, I can never be completely happy with a wig color for almost all of my cosplays. xP Especially for blonds and silver. xP

I hope you run into at least another touhou cosplayer!

So I've got my fabrics but I'm not sure if I like the blue. It was the only one that was thick enough and had a matching black, but now I'm thinking it might be too dark. I thought I'd try to bleach it or paint over it with a roller or something. XP How does it look to you guys? Is there enough contrast between the black and blue?

I went around the house taking photos in different lighting but I can't take one in sunlight because it's already night. XP

I think it's still pretty good Viveeh. Even a little less light, I think there is enough contrast between the black and blue. Personally I'm never TOO picky and if I had shopped around for the right fabric/color for a while, I'd just go with it... so it's really up to you.

Thanks Akahime, I've decided to keep it as it is. I guess I'll get to like it more as I work on the costume. XD I'm starting to cut the pieces now, maybe I'll post a progress shot later.~

Cirno was the first actual cosplay I ever did. I've made quite a few changes since I made it, and unfortunately I forgot to take a picture the last time I wore it with all the additions.

Aww, I wish we could've seen it! Her outfit seems really cute.

I've made some progress on Rinnosuke. Everything's unfinished and unironed but I think you can see pretty much where it's at. This fabric changes color so much! I've got only the pants and shoes to do and the rest to finish so it's almost done. *dances*

You know, sometimes I don't know when I'll cosplay someone too until a con gets closer and I just get this urge to make someone... it's strange and just gives me more work to do. 8D (That's how I came to decide to cosplay Yuuka for Katsucon, xP)
