I think i'll leave this topic in the Hangout for now.
Aaaaaanyone into cosplay?
I used to think it was kinda gay, until I started hanging around with my now best friends. They both cosplay and one of them did an awesome Assassins Creed Connor Kenway cosplay, so I thought i'd try it out as it looked quite fun and I like being the centre of attention ofc. It's really cool, the community is very welcoming. I didn't realise how much of a big thing it was, 80,000 people attended MCM and a lot of them in cosplay.
I did a basic one for MCM London in May, I went as Hayley Williams as i've been told I bear a likeness. Everyone loved it, I couldn't walk 5 feet without being stopped and harrassed for pictures/hugs etc, felt a bit like a celebrity. It was crazy. Here's a few pics: One, Two, Three.
So now i'm planning my next cosplay for October's MCM, if anyone is a fan of Youtube's Roosterteeth you've probably heard of RWBY, their animated project. I'm doing Blake (Black), got a lot of the outfit ready and i've paid someone to comission the weapon for me cause I don't have the tools. My friend's doing Ruby (red) and we're hoping to look awesome.
So, what are your thoughts on cosplay? Do you cosplay, would you cosplay? If you've done it before, what have you done and any future plans? I'd love to see!
