If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

I went to Anime Central last year and am planning on going this year. But, sadly, I've never cosplayed. Maybe I'll do it next year.

Cosplay? Its not actually a "thing" its something people do. Cosplay is going to Anime Conventions and dressing up as an anime character. Most good anime conventions have contests for the best cosplayers there. If you do it, I recommend that you do a semi popular character or a character from a not very well known anime. You don't want to be one of 15 Vash the Stampedes there.

So you have to do a Cos-Play? I'd suck at making a costume.animesweat.gif Some costumes look pretty cool. But some look really weird, like this one I saw in a NewType magazine with SSJ Goku and Piccolo blink.gif .

You don't have to cosplay. Its just a fun thing some people who go to the cons do. You can go in whatever, actually.

If you want to see some very cool cosplay outfits, go to cosplay.com. Also, on the forums of the site, they have all kinds of cons going on across the US and you can see what some of the other people there are going to cosplay as and you can make little groups. For example, if you have 4 people all looking to cosplay, you could do the Cowboy Bebop group.

well, technically cosplay is dressing up and acting out that character in a contest......that's where it came from......well, used to be that....i love doing that....i went as Chocolate Misu one year....*anime civ form, no way in hell was i doing the suspenders!*......it was so much fun....i bought so much anime stuff i have no need for and i don't regret it....i would suggest waiting until the last day to buy stuff....a lot of vendors will mark things down so they have less to take back with them....i got me a $60 Vash the Stampede bust for $20 that way!.....^_^....

*reads the post above his .... is even more interested in the character now ! :happy: X'D*

But seriously, it must be so much fun dressing up and stuff, but equally tough, the costumes are to make. Can you imagine, 10 years from now, technology would be so high, that you could be walking into such a fest in your very own Gundam ^_^


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Who is the coolest person everyone's met at a con?

Last year I had the occasion to meet Beau Billingslea and talk to him for about a half hour. Incase you don't know who that is, he has done dozens and dozens of voice parts. Most people would probably know him from Cowboy Bebop where he played Jet Black or from the Xenosaga games where he was Helmer. Anyway, hes a real cool, down to earth type guy.
