I finished reading the Fruits Basket manga a few minutes ago (yes, I know I'm late to the party..) and I must say I was surprised how good it got in the end! Normally shoujo manga doesn't catch my eyes at all.. but I've had some slight interest in Fruits Basket for some time because I thought the zodiac concept was interesting. Oh well, when one of my con friends told me I should cosplay as Kazuma and showed me a picture of him I went "looks cool" (mainly because he wore kimono. I <3 kimono xD) and decided to start reading the manga some days after that, mainly just to find out about this character.
Honestly, at the first 4 volumes I considered dropping it because I found all characters except Kyo, Tohru and Hatori (and occasionally Yuki and Shigure) extremely annoying. But something still kept me reading it.. and now when I just finished Furuba I must say I'm glad that I didn't drop it because the story sure got a lot more interesting at the later volumes and the characters developed and stopped getting on my nerves as much, haha.

Oh well, I must say my favorite is Kazuma followed by Kureno and Hatori. I also liked Kyo, but Kazuma is the best. <3 Now I want to cosplay Kazuma and Kureno next year but I fear people won't recognize me if I don't have a Fruits Basket group because the character designs are rather.. generic. I already have a prop bird plushie I could use for Kureno (bought it years ago because I really like birds) but when I do Kazuma I would need someone to be Kyo for people to recognize who I'm supposed to be.. otherwise I think most people will just think "random kimono dude" when they see me I guess. XD If I carried Kyo's bracelet when alone I think that could help with getting recognized though..

Again I come to think: We surely live too far apart, Blood_Sword, as I just happened to cosplay Kyo this year and somehow really enjoyed that cos (although I'm still tempted to cosplay Shigure one day too). Kazuma would be really awesome to cosplay with. o.o
I have to admit I still haven't finished the manga yet. -.-'' Somehow I don't manage to...
Some years back I watched the anime lured to do so by the zodiac theme as well and fell in love with Shigure and Kyo... Early this year someone suggested cosplaying from it... and I somehow liked the idea though I had never really thought about it before. I started reading the manga but well time's short... have to continue it soon I guess.^^

Besides I was kinda surprised what ppl reconised. Ok, Kyo's a protagonist. But I'd not have thought someone would recognise him in school uniform (or pyjamas as friends were calling my outfit xD).

*checks your costumes* OH SNAP, INDEED.
It would be awesome to cosplay Kazuma with you! Your Kyo looks fab and I think indeed the bracelet is a big recognizing factor for him.

Oh, and you should finish the manga, it gets a lot more interesting at the later volumes!

It would be awesome to cosplay with you as well as always in my thoughts . There are quite some series now actually. xD You’ve a good taste.

And many thanks . Happy to hear this especially from someone who is currently involved in the series. And yes, the bracelet was a great factor xD. Since someone I didn’t know just blurted out: “Oh, it’s Kyo.” Only when she saw the bracelet xD.

Heard that and still want to. When I have finished my next cos today, I should have time after the weekend.

Why did I not watch this series sooner, I'll never know.. I'll definitely have to read it as well.. but man, I don't know who I want to try and cosplay at all. There's so many great choices.

I did a quick preview of my Kazuma cosplay today and that means I'm now just waiting to debut him!

I hope I'll get some better photos after the con next month.

I already saw it, but never got to write a comment. I think it's really great. Really a shame I won't be able to see it for real.

I'm so happy I have my Ayame cosplay about 50% done now. Wig is styled and the white under dress is made. I just did my layout for the overcoat (Still have to cut it. My dog seems to think today is a great day to constantly walk all over my fabric).
And my news gets even better. At the con I'm debuting this at there's going to be Fruits Basket meet-up so hopefully we'll get most of the cast. I know we have 2 Kyo's and Haru at least.
