> But not being attatched to your significant other at a con seems like a grave waste.

Of course. =) But I was speaking from the POV of "how to gather the most fangirls". It also depends on who you are cosplaying... Kira and Setsuna would have probably been more popular than Lucifer and Alexiel. (As a rule, yaoi pairings attract more fangirls than het ones.)

> I don't, either.

Actually, he said he COULD see it.

> A lot of people go nuts if you HAVE a pairing.

If you have a popular yaoi pairing, yes. Fangirls do not tend to be fond of het pairings. (See above.)

> Yaoi pairings seem to get more attention, but my fiance and I are always glomped together.

It's different attention, in my experience. That is, alone you get a lot more fangirls, glompings, etc, and with a matched cosplayer, you tend to get more polite "may I take your picture" with no socializing.

People reacted to me very differently when I was a lone Rosiel, or with a random AS group, and when I had Katan hovering around me protectively. ^__^

Same with Schuldig versus Crawford-and-Schuldig.

I don't know...people went nuts for us as Serenity and Endymion. So that's a het pairing that they like a lot. ^^;

That makes sense, that they would react differently. Also, AS is more known now, isn't it? So...more people might react better now to a lone Rosiel. I know *I* would. But hey, I'm a freak. ^^;

Rosiel on its own always gathered /many/ fangirls, it's when I am with Katan than they tend to be a lot more subdued and less "social". (You seem to have understood the contrary.)

Although the reaction is a lot less than it used to be... In 1999 (or was it 2000?) it was really slow, because no one knew AS, 2001 was the big year, and started to go down in 2002.

Now it seems people are starting to think "Oh-hum, another person with three wings. Look! Pikachu!" *laughs* So it's not as effective an attention-grabber as it was before.

I say go with Squall. It's certain success with fangirls.
Just no Rinoa.

Yeah, I was rambling and lost track of what I meant. XD

XD That is kind of scary.
But...I know what you mean...it's like AS is a fad lately. ;_; Damn. I wanted to be SEMI-ORIGINAL with our AS costumes.

Ah, well, our Petshop of Horrors costumes are pretty original. So...yeah.

>>I say go with Squall. It's certain success with fangirls.

I agree, actually.

Squall,thats a good one!

I like girlish type men for my anime:

1.) Rosiel from Angel Sanctuary
2.) Griffith from Beserk
3.) Count D from Pet Shop of Horrors
4.) Arislan fom Heroic Legend of Arislan
to name a few!

I like men of power as well:

1.) Iason of Ai no Kusabi
2.) Zadei sama of Seimaden
to name a couple!

If I saw anyone cosplay any of these characters I would be a fan!

Teteiyusu:

I'm cosplaying both Rosiel and Count D for Yaoi Con this year, most likely. Hopefully, my fiance will come with me, and I'll have him be Katan and Leon.

YAY I am offtopic.

Oooh, Count D costume *drool*

I would kill to go as him, but I think me wearing yet another dress might not make me a glompee magnet.

...must...win...bet...

I've been glomped by a fanboy before. It was my first cosplay, too. I think he was just happy to see the character that I cosplayed. Of course I had the crud scared out of me when he glomped me (I didn't know what it was at the time).

As for the flocking fangirl thing, Squall's hot and all but I would only flock if it were the real Squall (fat chance of that happening see he's a fictional character). I look more for the costume, less for how hot the guy is. I'd only flock for a good FF7/Kingdom Hearts Cloud or Kingdom Hearts Squall (I'd go fangirly on Matt if I ever saw him in his KH Cloud costume).

Talking

I wonder if anyone would notice me if I did an Urban Terror costume...

Na. Besides, Urbant Terror has no fangirls. No fangirls=winning bet.

I don't know. If *I* saw a guy do a really good D costume, I'd SOOO glomp him.

And it's not a DRESS.

It's a qipao, or close to it.
Most of D's clothes are specifically designed for males. ^^
