I was just random ronin in black...and of course thrown in with the shinigami. -Shrugs.- Good to find someone to associate with espically when the Naurto ninjas attack.

Big O Icon! Yay! My buddy and I cosplayed Roger Smith and Dorothy Wayneright on Sunday. We got about... 5 or 6 nods and photos n'such, but most people had no clue.

[quote=Pocky]No one recognized my Yuzuki cosplay (Chobits). I wonder if dying my hair would have given it away...[/quote]


You did Yuzuki??? Which day? I would have taken your picture! I was so wishing to see a Yuzuki, and I was even complaining that you couldn't turn around without bumping into a Chi, but no one ever cosplays any of the other characters. I'm in the planning stages of doing Sumomo for ConnectiCon.

[color:green]...I always wanted to cosplay Kotoko, myself. xD If I had seen Yuzuki, though, I think I would have died happy. <3[/color]

Sorry I missed you! It's the lesser known characters that I actually look for when I'm with my camera.

I wish I'd seen you. Big O Rocks! and I've met so few people who appreciate its wit and wry humor. I'd definitely have snapped your photo. Darn :(

I'm really surprised at the number of photos of costumes I'm seeing in galleries now that I NEVER saw when I was actually at the con! Seriously, how did I miss all these? So I absolutely know where you're coming from on that. I spent a fair amount of time buying loot in the dealers room this day, too, so I wasn't out in the rest of the con that much.

We did do a brief photoshoot on one of the escalators, though, which served as quite a good backdrop for Paradigm City!

I was cosplaying as an @$$hole, but apparently nobody recognized me.

All i wanted was for somebody to be like "Hey, you're an @$$hole" and i'd be like "ohhh! you knew! Wanna take my picture?!"

Never panned out though.

I was drunk the entire con anyways, yay for being legal and not visibly intoxicated.

[quote=CJ Gren]I was cosplaying as Reira from NANA. I'm pretty sure the only people that knew who I was were my friends and the other NANA cosplayers I met up with.[/quote]
You were Reira? What days were you there? I was only there for a few hours Friday, but I would have recognized you!

On Friday I was Sarasa from Basara. No one knew who I was. I had Shinbashi and the Sword of Byakko too... (well I did lose Shinbashi a couple times but that's besides the point) :P

I had no problems with my cosplay, but my friend's moogle costume didn't pan out too well. Not many people really recognized her, even with the doily and the red nose:

...I made it on thurday night before the con.

I never saw your friend or I would have recognized her. I can't believe no one would see her as a moogle....

I actually like dressing as the non popular characters. My first con I dressed as a Naruto character and I heard all throughout the con oh God not another one. After that it was my quest to find cosplays that not many people recognize.
