I'm planning on bringing my Fem! Minami Kotaro (Kamen Rider Black) civilian outfit, because why not? It would be cool if we got some older Tokusatsu cosplays at the meetup!
I'll be bringing Taki Rider from the Kamen rider Spirits manga.

I'm not sure, but I'm kind of thinking of doing Subaru from Tokyo Babylon or maybe Kurapica from HunterxHunter
I would be ECSTATIC to see another Subaru cosplay! I was considering bringing mine, but I'm not sure yet.

I'm definitely bringing Terra from Final Fantasy VI. Not sure how retro 2003 gameboy is, but I'll have some ancient FE costumes again this year, too.

Yeah I'm also on the fence with it because I have 2 others I'm considering, but I feel like I should be honoring these old retro CLAMP characters. Which version/outfit of Subaru were/are you thinking? I'm thinking of default red+black but if possible I want to do onmyouji Subaru

I have this one!

My boyfriend did Seishirou when I first wore it, but I'm not sure he's up for it again. Literally everyone thought he was cosplaying another character, and I think we lost the wig. It is super comfy, though, so I might bring it as a late night comfy costume?

Oh the one with the long coat? Nice! I was thinking of doing the short red jacket, but I'm still not sure...but if I do do it, I'll probably go to the CLAMP meet-up (I think there is one this year) so maybeee see you there?

Still waiting to hear for sure on cosplay games, but I will be bringing Motoko Kusanagi (SAC: 2nd gig version), Washuu (Tenchi Muyo!), and a Red XIII mascot that I am hoping to finish in time. I may also bring Urd (Ah! My Goddess!) back.

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.
My friend and I are cosplaying Yui and Miaka ( school uniform) on Sunday! I hope to see your Fushigi Yuugi cosplay, as it's one of my favorite series.

Hey. Are we going to have a photoshoot for the retro group? If so, what time and places would be good? I'd like a Friday shoot, personally.

Scrapped plans for Inuyasha. I am officially doing Shampoo from Ranma 1/2. As much as I'd love to participate in a retro shoot, I'm staff so it's unlikely I'll be able to make it. :lol:

How retro are we talking exactly? I'm going to do Nana Oosaki from, well, Nana, which is early 2000s, if that counts.

It would be super fun to do a photoshoot considering that there aren't going to be specific ones for all these tiny older fandoms, but I can't do Friday because I have plans with friends to do Umineko cosplays that day.

AB officially considers anything over 10 years retro. I asked because of the cosplay games.
I can't do anything but Friday morning since that's when I'll be in my Gundam Wing cosplay, but you're welcome to do a Saturday one. I'll be in a retro cosplay Saturday morning too, but it has its own photoshoot.

Sweet, I'm in under the wire then.

And I'm totally willing to organize a second photoshoot on Saturday or Sunday if there's enough interest to sustain two.

10? I thought it was 15 (as in 'up to the year before Anime Boston started')

-Shrug- Just going by what they said when I asked what they were considering retro because what's retro to someone who's 30 is different to someone who's 18.

Cool! I've never seen a pre-MGS Metal Gear cosplay. I hope you'll consider stopping by the retro photoshoot on Sunday.
