So I love cosplay to the degree that I like and fallow a ton of cosplayers but I have never really had the time or interest to get in to it myself. I have done a bit of costuming in my past though for school drama and what not so I might still some day if I find the right girl… but I’m curious if anyone here is in to it?
Or if you have people in your family who are?
I love Cosplay. I would love to have a high quality costume - movie quality maybe. Darth Vader, Kylo Ren. Maybe something where I'm unrecognizable.
I have done two or three conventions. I'd like to get a booth for my art, but I don't have enough room or money to print and store all these prints... I don't know if there's an interest in anything I'd try to sell. Paying 1000+ for a booth when I may (or may not) sell some art seems like I would lose a lot of money to try it. If I did, I WOULD love to dress up for that.
But, back to Cosplay - for Halloween, I've done a few different nerdy costumes, and I have done two or three small comic/science fiction conventions. Luckily, I'd go with friends I could trust to dress up, so I'm not totally alone.
I dressed as Doug Rattmann (Portal), I went as a Splicer from Bioshock, I went as Marty McFly Jr. (Back to the Future 2), and Tony Stark. Really simple, inexpensive costumes. Mostly stuff I already have.
I would love to dress up for more franchise movies, but they look down on that around here, and people like to ruin that sort of thing, so I'll just usually wear a t-shirt related to the movie, maybe a pin or something small like that.
I learned at an early age with "costume parties" to not dress up too elaborately. If everyone is "too cool" to dress up - with some simple, quick changes, I can look like I just came from work.
