Hatsune Miku. So everyone needs to stop being her, cause I have plans to cosplay as her myself.

There are cosplays that have been done to death, but it doesn't detract from my enjoyment when they are done well. For example, NARUTO is a huge series, and Sakura Haruno gets cosplayed pretty frequently. I still absolutely adore Aoi Takamura's Sakura all the same.

17 posts and no mention of Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians?

The only "overdone" cosplays that actually bother me are homestuck related. They just leave grey makeup everywhere.

I know absolutely nothing about Homestuck but I love seeing Dave Striders. What a cool looking dude. Makes me want to rock a pair of aviators shades with my non-Homestuck cosplays just to give them props. I never get sick of any cosplays, even the popular ones like Dr. Who, Homestuck, Sailor Moon, etc. I love them all.

its more of a personal preference. I liked link, naruto, etc(main stream stuff) cause seeing them around is awesome, but there comes a point where everyone is cosplaying the same thing and I'm like uh... I've never read homestuck but I have to say, seeing people with grey skin around is both creepy and cool xD

Honestly I love dressing up a Link from the Zelda series because I literally looked like him without make up, hair dye, hair gels, or wigs. Problem is that I find Link a common as dirt cosplay.

I learned this very early on at my first major cosplay run at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con. I bought a high grade green lightsaber to go with my basic Link Costume and it worked so well that I decided to blend Legend of Zelda with Star Wars for my first serious cosplay project that I am working on now. I intend to keep doing that mashup so I always have something that will be unique and stand out.

I am doing her. I honestly haven't seen many good Sakura's. They all wear wholesale outfits that are obviously cheap.
I have yet to see a good Sakura.. (But I don't look much XP)
But... If you are going to do a popular character, do it good.. Or add your own personal taste. Like how for one day of Anime Expo, I am doing Sakura's school outfit.
And what makes popular cosplays better, is doing it in a group. It is better than seeing one lone character, I guess..
Also, handmake it.. Wholesale is good sometime.. But, you want to be unique. Wholesale isn't unique.

Oh, and in responce to the thread.. Hatsune Miku.

That's so awesome! I hope I get to see it Comic Con! That would actually make a fantastic group cosplay too!

I would like to see your Tali Zora commission when its done for the Convention too. I think she will look good with a purple Lightsaber.

The awesomeness of that cannot be ignored. Looks like I'll be bringing a purple lightsaber to Comic Con with me, then we can count all of the people who think I'm actually a Star Wars character.

Your mileage may vary, but the aforementioned Aoi Takamura's Sakura cosplay is what inspired me to fall in love with this hobby.

Here's the place that makes the best Lightsabers. http://www.ultrasabers.com/
The bulbs for Ultrasabers are in the hilt rather then in the blade so you can duel with them. The purple blade color is called "Violet Amethyst" You can decide which Lightsaber works the best with your character.

I hope we can pair up as a team for our character mashups for the San Diego Comic Con. That would be fun for both of us.

It's alright. I have seen this person before. I was referring to Sakura Shippuden.

Well, I have done Dark Link from time to time. Maybe for the next con I can go as Dark Jedi Link! Either way this is going to tons of fun! I'll be all by my lonesome for Comic Con so it'll be nice to have someone with me, especially since I'm pretty certain I can't see much out of my helmet XD.

Considering both our characters are not from Star Wars but will like they belong with Lightsabers, it should make for a fun pair.
I look forward to drawing heads at the Comic Con as Jedi Link paired up with you as Jedi Tali.
