Hey guys so if you are planning to cosplay for the big summer conventions then you are probably getting your cosplay ready or starting to about this time. Yes sometimes it takes weeks upon weeks to get that cosplay just right, depending on how hardcore you want to be.
OR if you are new to cosplay and you are not sure about it here are some tips along with some pictures from my collection of cosplayers taken at A-KON in Dallas, Texas.
|Ghost in Shell Cosplay|
|Howls Moving Castle|
|Naruto Cosplay: Kakashi Sensei|
|Creepy anime face masks|
TIP #4: Avoid the creepy anime masks. They are just flat out creepy and give an alien like quality to your cosplay. You may think its cute but most people would much rather prefer to see someone with their own natural face on a costume than a fake one, unless of course they are cosplaying a furry then that's the only exception I say to wearing a mask, or if your character actually wears a mask like Ichigo in Bleach. But just avoid the creepy anime face masks, they are more creepy than they are cool.
|Labyrinth Cosplay: The Goblin King Jareth|
|Fullmetal Alchemist Cosplay: Major Armstrong|
|Inuyasha group cosplayers|
So there you have it, some tips on doing great cosplay. Just some basics ones of course. I don't generally make cosplay I have it ordered so I can't really say on how to actually make a cosplay, just some tips on things you should or shouldn't do while you are playing the part.
Happy Cosplaying Everyone!
