Our con-man, Zach, brings us more anime convention coverage with Ohayocon! This time, it was not all fun and games, unfortunately…
On January 18th-20th, I attended Ohayocon 2013 with my group of friends. As usual with everything, there’s both good and bad. Please read the disclaimer before reading my actual coverage.
Disclaimer: To the owner of the Gundam parked in row 4A, you left your lights on.
In all seriousness, here’s the real disclaimer: Please remember every part of my coverage, both good and bad, is based off personal experience, and things I witnessed firsthand at the convention. Anything in this article has a chance of happening, so please keep everything stated in mind if you are considering attending Ohayocon, or any convention. Everything’s a possibility.
I was a little overwhelmed at first, as this was only my second convention ever, and I hadn’t been to one this large before (the only ...
I wrote a short article on my video gaming blog Gamemories about Sephiroth cosplaying. It has links to patterns and places on Amazon you can buy accessories and more.
Do you want to see more cosplay “kits” and inspiration like this article?
There are places you can buy costumes, but the most amazing ones are made by the cosplayer. Of course, many of the worst cosplays are also hand made. It takes some cash to do it well, but anything you enjoy is worth the cost. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the “pros” from the casual cosplayer, but it doesn’t really matter.
Here is another collection of favorites I found in my forays online. They range from Bleach to Chobits and to the ever present Final Fantasy.
This is a very image heavy post: 14 cosplay goodness.
This looks just like the computer generated Miku Hatsune...only more alive and cuter
This is a detailed Lulu from Final Fantasy 10. She looks more approachable than that Lulu though...
This Chii captures the character's innocence and ethereal feel.
This cosplayer went all out with this homemade Midna costume. Very sexy and detailed. ...
There are a lot of cosplay pics on the net. Some are good; some not so much. Here are a few cool ones I have found recently. While I wouldn’t cosplay myself, I think it’s cool just how detailed and exact people can get with the costumes. Some are bought from boutiques but most cosplayers like to make their own. For those of you who don’t know; cosplay is short for “costume play.” People dress up as accurately as they can as their favorite video game or anime/manage characters and often put on sketches during conventions. Hence the “play” part of cosplay. Cosplayers can also enter competitions for the best costume. Some game companies hire professional cosplayers to represent their franchise at these conventions
Step aside Zelda. Midna has more unearthly sex appeal than you do. This cosplay really impressed me. I hope Midna becomes a regular character in the ...
