Title: Fanime 2010 first time cosplayer!
Post by: xkuramaxhieix on November 23, 2009, 02:16:33 PM
Hey guys, so I plan on cosplaying for Fanime 2010 next year.

But I don't know what to cosplay as cause I'm out of ideas.

I was thinking about going as Joey wheeler, 'cept I don't know if there's gonna be a seto kaiba there because if there were one there, it would make idea for it absolutely hilarious. ;D

So, if I choose a different character to cosplay, what would you recommend a first time cosplayer cosplaying as? Preferably not someone scantily clad.

Thanks for helping!

Kura

Information about your personality and appearance, or even perhaps a picture of yourself would be good for us to figure out a good cosplay for you.

From what I've seen in the Yugioh gathering topic I haven't seen someone stating they'd be there for as Kaiba. but you never know.

I've always found that dressing up as your favorite char is the important part, as long as you remember the basic rules:

Spandex is a Privilege, not a right.
If you look down and can't see your toes, don't show off your stomach (or any other part for that matter)
No Man Faye!

Other than that, do whatever makes you feel good. And, avoid dyeing your hair to match, it doesn't always look good.

You haven't mentioned if you know how to sew or if you're planning on commissioning a costume. I agree with the Monkey, choose a character you like and go from there.
