Cosplay Journal [Updated Continually]

So I can keep what I've done and what I want to do in some sort of order.


~~~

Completed

Mello (Death Note)
Pros: Quick and easy cosplay, well-known but not often cosplayed
Cons: I'm not a huge fan of the series, and I have to pretend to be badass

Asch the Bloody (Tales of the Abyss)
Pros: Overall good cosplay, fun to act
Cons: The arm bands still don't fit perfectly, and it's really hot under all those layers

Spain- War of Austrian Succession (Axis Powers Hetalia)
Pros: Fun to act, not a very common cosplay
Cons: I have to carry the axe around, and it's not as fun without a group

Spain- Gakuen (Axis Powers Hetalia)
Pros: Good casual cosplay
Cons: Less recognizable

Spain- Uniform (Axis Powers Hetalia)
Pros: Recognizable
Cons: Maybe too common, and the pants are a little tight

Bakura- Yami and Ryou (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Pros: Good casual cosplay
Cons: I'm not that into Yu-Gi-Oh; mostly just the abridged series

Bakura- Pirate (Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged)
Pros: Get hugs from Little Kuriboh
Cons: Looks lame if you don't actually get the joke

Iceland- Uniform (Axis Powers Hetalia)
Pros: Overall good cosplay
Cons: Kind of boring when there aren't any other Nordics around

Ema Skye (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney)
Pros: Fun to cosplay, fun to be recognized
Cons: Still a relatively small fandom, from which I like other characters better

Miria Harvent (Baccano!)
Pros: Amazingly fun to cosplay, high quality, accurate, best friend as Isaac
Cons: Only used with Isaac

Mion/Shion Sonozaki (Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni)
Pros: Fun to act, fun to be recognized
Cons: Wig hurts after a while, gets tangled easily, not fun to cosplay without other characters from the series

Claire Foley (Professor Layton and the Unwound Future)
Pros: Accurate cosplay, comfortable to wear
Cons: Low rate of recognition, esp. without a Layton cosplayer

Nezumi (No. 6)
Pros: Good, comfortable cosplay, recognized but not over-done
Cons: Wig makes my head hurt after a while, less fun without a Shion

John Watson (BBC Sherlock Holmes)
Pros: Comfortable, cheap, good when recognized
Cons: Less interesting, especially without a group

Jade Harley- 3 am dress (Homestuck)
Pros: Simple, cheap
Cons: Sheds sparkles EVERYWHERE

Jade Harley- God Tier
Pros: Popular, cute, a lot of effort put into the making
Cons: Hood and ears hurt my head a bit

Oswin Oswald (Doctor Who)
Pros: Simple, cheap, comfortable
Cons: Not super recognizable, no wig; less relevant now

Black Widow (Marvel's The Avengers)
Pros: Popular, looks good

Kyouto Kirigiri (Dangan Ronpa)
Pros: Popular and unique, looks good
Cons: Delicate, heels not comfortable

The Disciple (Homestuck)

Difficulty: High
When: Youmacon 201?

Katherine (Guardians of Childhood)

YOU DO

Especially DRRR!! So you should start watching it tonight. (Don't be put off by the first few episodes though, they basically introduce all the characters and plotlines in one go and it's not supposed to make sense until they all come together in the end)

Baccano! is good so far too, and I feel like there are definitely characters you could cosplay from that series. :3 (You'd make an awesome Firo)

And you commenting reminded me that I wanted to add a FE cosplay to my list! *edits*

Be Australia so I can harass you as Wy!

I vote we find at least one group cosplay thing where I do not beat up/antagonize you. Just for shitsngiggles.
And I still think we should have opposite day at some point.

Also, you should cosplay Princess Carrot. Or you could be Shamona and I will be Princess Carrot (complete with voice!).
