Can’t wait to Cos!

Cosplay. When you can shamelessly dress up as your hero.

I’ve interviewed Cosplay ‘artsits’ at the SMASH (Sydney Manga Anime Show) last year, and now I’m ready to give it a go myself.

First things first!

I’ve purchased this. Yes, I’m happy to announce I’m going to dress up as Princess Peach when and where I can.

But, like Halloween, female cosplay usually means that girls can wear as little as they want and get away with it. Nay, be worshipped for it. I choose to not go down that path.

So after looking around a little I’ve decided on some possibilities!

My most favourite female character ever. Wise, demure, covered up! Just need to buy an ocarina…

Another female blonde character that kicks ass is Samus Aran

No need for wig or eye contacts with me! Win. But the rest of the costume looks insanely good.

I’ve always thought that Fran from FFXII not only sounded rad, but looked incredible. But I never thought anyone would be daring enough to cosplay her. Even more certain they wouldn’t be able to pull it off. How wrong I was.

Wowzers. This is definitely the fine line between showing off T&A and dressing to character. The truth is, she hasn’t altered the costume at all. This is what Fran wears. I’m actually jealous.

Sticking with the blonde theme, and because I religiously watched this show for a year every morning before school, I thought this one could be a winner. I’d actually learn the dance she does to transform. Hello glitter nail polish.

The closest thing I’ve done in cosplay so far was for my 21st birthday. The theme was ‘Cartoon, Comics and Computer Games’. Best ever. I wanted to go as something awesome, something that didn’t look like me remotely. Who did I go as?

Snow White! I got to have short black hair with a fringe, something I’d never even dreamed of before. All I know is that no matter what I do for cosplay, I’m doing something well if I look better than this guy

  1. Wow! Thanks for adding that last picture. To quote myself a minute ago:”My eyes! My eyes!” :(

    The other ones were really neat, though.

    This is my all-time favorite: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2208/1605169142_8ab7ac1f6e_o.jpg (Nariko from Heavenly Sword).
