Do You Cosplay Alone Or With Friends?
« on: October 09, 2008, 01:23:52 PM »

Fellow cosplayers, do you cosplay alone or with friends or a group of people?

I started cosplaying in 2004. My friends back then went their separated ways. I have new friends who are more into anime than my past friends, and are 10 times more fun to hang out with =) These new friends are my closest friends except they don’t cosplay.

I’m mostly alone going to the gatherings and walking around in the daytime, saying hi to acquaintances, meeting new people, and taking cosplay pics.  I like to meet new friends who are into cosplay.

Mostly alone, cause some of my friends are too poor to get a costume. Only one of my friends does.

A good number of my friends cosplay (at least the ones who are into anime and are con-goers). I don't necessarily coordinate what I cosplay as with them, but sometimes we do groups.

I do cosplay with friends sometimes (as in planning out our cosplays so that we are from the same seiries and around the same group of People. Example: I'll be cosplaying Pearl from Phoenix Wright and my Friend will be cosplaying her mother Morgen)

But allot of my cosplays I just do for myself. Sometimes my friends decide to join me in the series I do or I join them in theirs ;D

So essentially, it's a little of both.

Myself, I usually cosplay with friends or family; it was my brother-not-by-blood who got me cosplaying in the first place, when he insisted I come up for Sakuracon '07 and then informed me they were cosplaying and I was going to be a part of the group.  (Not that I minded, really.)

Since then, every con I've gone to I've had cosplaying friends along, whether it's my Seattle family (at all but one con) or my sister last Fanime.  I've made other friends through cosplay, and it's always lovely to meet up with them and hang out as well.  I usually wind up doing 'group' cosplays with whoever I'm going to con with; Okita's been my only exception to that.  It's fun either way.

I usually cosplay with friends, even if we arent from the same series. People usually just ask for seperate pics and whatnot. We do have a smal bleach and ff7 group though o-o;.

I think it was in 2004 when I dressed up as a Chunnin from Naruto.  I wasn't aware of the gathering happening that year and mainly walked around and asked for other people's picture. 

Just this past fanime of 2008, I cosplayed Ikki from Air Gear because it looked like there would be quite a few people to meet up with on the gathering day.

This year my friend and I are trying to coordinate an anime we can both cosplay from.  It's rather difficult because he and I have somewhat different taste in anime.

I really like going as a big group all from the same series! It's loads of fun, but that just doesn't usually end up happening... So mostly I cosplay alone and hang with friends!

I cosplay alone, though in 2009 me and my friend (or a few) will be doing a sort of theme.

Yay! My friend Erik is cosplaying Alucard! Hmmm... and one of my other friends might cosplay Lord Kante from FLCL. If he can pull that off it will be a Fanime to remember.

It depends, before I use to just cosplay alone. depending if any of my friends that want to cosplay on any series (anime or video games) together.

You can say that my friends and I all cosplay together, but it doesn't mean it's from the same series, lol. Our tastes vary, as well as finances & crafting skills. This year I hope to put together one cosplay where we're all from the same series, though. It's a lot more fun, especially when taking pictures.
