Retro Cosplays 2017

Post by MomoKitty » Fri Sep 09, 2016 5:44 pm

So since the theme is retro, I was wondering what retro/old school cosplays everyone was planning.
I'm planning to bring back Duo Maxwell from Gundam Wing once again as well Miaka Yuki from Fushigi Yugi as my retro cosplays. What about everyone else?

I'm thinking of crossplaying Inuyasha. Also thought about bringing back Shampoo from Ranma 1/2. Still on the fence about that one.

This thread is kind of broad in comparison to what is usually posted here, haha. My sister and I are thinking about doing Sailor Moon and InuYasha characters.
I believe if time passes, everything turns into beauty. If the rains stop, tears clean the scars of memory away. Everything starts wearing fresh colors. Every sound begins playing a heartful melody. Jealousy embellishes a page of the epic. Desire is embraced in a dream. But my mind is still in chaos and..

Well, yeah, but it's meant to just see what retro cosplays people are bringing as opposed to a specific fandom. Some of the retro cosplays will probably not have their own threads, like my Fushigi Yugi cosplay.

Now that I've moved up to the nyc area Anime Boston is a realistic possibility.

I'll probably revive one or both of these two if I can find all the pieces of them in my house.

My friend and I are planning to go as genderbent Vegeta and Nappa. We have other cosplays planned for the weekend but those are the only ones that are "retro" I guess. Super excited to see all of your guys costumes! Love Sailor Moon and Inuyasha! :D

I'm hoping to be Rei Hino (Sailor Moon) in her school uniform along with Phobos and Deimos puppets. It all sort of depends on my financial situation at the time. I will be bringing Ryo-ohki (Tenchi Muyo) back. Need to spiff her up a bit, but hopefully my friend will be bringing her Sasami as well.

What I want to do, and what can realistically happen, are verrrrrry different things.

I'll probably wind up bringing Sango (Inuyasha) again, as I have for the past...three? years or so - one of my friends made it for me, and it's a mainstay for me at this point. Maybe this will finally be the year of Hiraikotsu? We'll see.

I'm also really interested in Ukyo Kuonji (Ranma 1/2), battle outfit WITH the gigantic spatula. It seems like a fun idea, and maybe I can convince a friend to bring back her Shampoo costume once more.

On the big accomplishment list, Ryoko (Tenchi Muyo), probably her black/teal outfit with the red belt from I think Tenchi in Tokyo.

Suicide plans involve Legend of Dragoon. 99.9% unlikely.

I'm bringing back Motoko Kusanagi from the '95 version! That, and Sailor Moon is a possibility... along with Jaibo from Litchi Hikari Club.

For sure planning on Yoko Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho.

I am also planning on one or two others depending on what my friends are cosplaying. Either Kikyo or Sesshoumaru from Inu-Yasha, Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi, Shuichi from Gravitation, or Fiore from the Sailor Moon movie.

Does Ouran count as retro? Haha, but I do have a few things planned that I want to keep on the downlow until the con gets closer for this theme, personally I'd say it has to be my favorite and I can't wait to see cosplays from old school shows. 8D

As someone who's been into anime and manga for over fifteen years, I'm loving seeing all these retro cosplans! I might be bringing a Sailor Saturn cosplay, as well as (and I'm not entirely sure if this 100% counts as retro, but) my Princess Tomoyo cosplay from Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles. Can't wait to see everyone there!

I might also bring back Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho. I haven't done that one in a few years and I need to fix my wig.
