    With an increasing number of comic, sci-fi and anime conventions now running each year in the UK, I was wondering whether anyone else here was into cosplay? If so, what characters have you cosplayed, or are you planning to cosplay in the future?

    I usually only attend Telford MCM Expo in February, and Southampton's Minamicon in March - it's about all my bank balance can handle. :p: But here's a few of my better photos & costumes:

    Madaraki Fran (Franken Fran)



    Hans Humpty (Rokka no Yuusha)



    I'm hoping to have two costumes ready for next year - I'm thinking Show By Rock!!'s Hijirikawa Cyan and (a first for me, not from an anime) Edna & Harvey: The Breakout's Edna Konrad. I'm already trying to get all the parts together.

    I don't see why it could be a problem, there have been plenty of 'post a picture of yourself' threads on TSR before. :dontknow: They're entirely optional here though, I'm more interested in finding out who else cosplays, and what characters they've been/plan to be for future events. :yes:

    2nd pictures reminds me of figurine, they always pose that way (well - occasionally) and these additional hands look quite real. Other than that, good piece of work!



    I'm glad I'm not the only one with notification problems

    I need to remember to post a picture of my MGS Johnny costume in here when I get a chance. I also did a Tony Stark one a while back which was fairly decent. Though it was rather simple. My facial hair is pretty similar to his so it was just a hair/ beard spray to the right colour and getting a arc reactor light to wear under my t-shirt for the right effect.

    I don't really have any other good pictures of my others costumes. Camera flashes killed the light on the arc reactor for my tony stark costume so the pictures don't show it well. Though I have remembered I have also in the past done the 11th Doctor Who and Yu from Persona 4. Though I don't do them often.

    When it comes to costumes I have two sort of rules. They have to be something I can do without a wig as I hate having to wear wigs (my hair is rather thick so it's rather difficult to hide my normal hair. The second rule is more of a preference but I prefer costumes where I don't have to shave as I don't like not having my beard haha. As a result one of the next costumes I want to do is Bigby from the Fables series. A nice and easy costume and again my hair and facial hair are pretty similar. So that saves some effort.

    Not the best work in the world, But I'm proud of some of them.

    I've been thinking about cosplaying lately though and wanted to try some kind of Star Trek cosplay

    Still needed: ...croquet mallet (optional - expensive, heavy and could possibly be disallowed as a dangerous weapon, but would look great in photos!)
    Wait... I already have a croquet mallet. I have three croquet mallets. :zomg: It's also surprisingly light. I picked the most tired looking of the three. :giggle:

    My first purchase 'fail' - I needed something matte white, cotton or something like that. I ended up with this shiny thing:



    The collar is great, and I could still use it if worse comes to worst... for now though, I'll be looking for an alternative.

    In other news, after failing to find any glasses similar to Cyan's online, my optician agreed to hunt something down for me. I probably won't even wear them in photos, since Cyan doesn't wear them onstage, but it'd be nice to be able to see my way around the convention while remaining vaguely in character.

    Take 2 on the shirt, a bit less garish. :p: But also, sadly, far too small (I'd fit this in my dreams :laugh: ). The way around that would be to cut off the sleeves, wear the main part of the shirt sleeveless, and attach the ends of the sleeves to the arms of the dress, since only the collar and cuffs need to be visible. But, I figure I might as well try and find a third shirt in the three months I have left, the perfect one has to be out there somewhere. :moon:

    Nice thread

    I've never cosplayed before but after coming back from the last 2 cons I've been wanting to give it a go, seems like a lot of fun Possibly at the London Anime Con next Feb.

    Would like to cosplay as either Subaru or Felix from Re:Zero. Subaru is the easiest option, just a tracksuit :laugh: Felix might just be too much for me for my first cosplay :p: Knight version of Felix btw, not the dress version, that I could never do lol :nah:
