Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments/critiques/feedback/encouragement/everything! I'm sorry it takes me some time to reply (if I do at all >_< ) but I do read them all and treasure/learn from each and every one!
If the ultra-geeky-but-super-fun past-time of cosplay doesn't interest you at all, then I recommend you don't waste precious time with this journal!
! Sorry to spam your inboxes
I know I'm years behind the times, but I started reading Bleach...
And by started, I mean I read 1-305 in about... two days or so. The day after that I ran to the fabric store and started an Arrankar Halibel cosplay >_>;. Do I have the breast size or skin tone for it? No, not at all, but that's not going to stop me!!! The Hakama is more or less complete... thankfully I've folded hakama for Iaido/Kendo just about eleventy-billion times, so I had great reference going into it
I remember watching the first episode of the anime two years ago and thinking it was boring as heck! I'm glad I gave the manga a go... I would give an explanation as to why I enjoy it, but I'm quite certain 99% of those who read this have been following the series for far, far longer than a noobling such as I XD. I'm thinking... you should possibly expect fan art.
Hopefully I'll get to attend Fanime '08 with the rest of the Gaia people! Dressing as....
1. Bleach - Espada, Halibel.
2. D. Grayman - Custom Rinalee (hopefully... I haven't started this one yet) ... I honestly think her outfit is a little boring compared to Allen, Kanda and Rabi's.
3. BATGIRL - Cassandra Cain!!!! Is it against the rules to wear Americomic costumes to Anime conventions?
4. If Batgirl isn't allowed into Fanime, then maybe Kagura from Gintama! Seems like an easy cosplay and I just *love* the character :d.
It's literally been four years since I've cosplayed. I completely blame my cubicle-neighbor, c2lan.deviantart.com .
Who will be attending Fanime '08? (Or for that matter, Wondercon '08)
Will you be wearing Bleach, DGM, or *gasp* BATMAN!?
