Since having been to my first ever anime and gaming convention, I have been so inspired to finally cosplay. It’s something I have always wanted to do but simply never had the money or chance to do it.
I don’t have the talent to create my own cosplay, so I am just going to buy one. These are some of the characters that I am thinking about cosplaying,please feel free to share opinions.
1. Wang Yuanji
I’m about 90% sure that I want to buy this costume, and it will probably be the first of my cosplays. If you do not recognize the character I don’t blame you, this is Wang Yuanji from Dynasty Warriors 7. The games are very popular in Japan, but here in the west they don’t get the good credit they deserve! I have been playing these games since Dynasty Warriors 2, but Wang Yuanji was only introduced in Dynasty Warriors 7. I really like the outfit, and I wouldn’t need to wear a wig as I have the same hairstyle and color (maybe some extensions would be needed though), the down side is not many people would know who it is I am cosplaying as. ^///^
Another idea I have been toying with is Vanille from Final Fantasy XIII. At first I was thinking Serah from Final Fantasy XIII-2, but I think Vanilles costumes is just so unique and interesting. I know a lot of people really didn’t like Vanille in the game, but I really loved her! The advantage of cosplaying as Vanille is that she would be easily recognized since she is from such a popular franchise.
3. Juliet Starling
Juliet Starling is the main character from Lollipop Chainsaw! I really loved the game and the character, even though many people complained about her and said how she was portrayed was so sexist. I found her super cute and a fun character it play as. The advantage of cosplaying Juliet is that I assume she would be pretty well known, and I also wouldn’t have to wear a wig, however the costume is a little plain. A bit skimpy also >//<
So there are the 3 cosplays that are going around in my mind right now. I really want to do cosplay atleast once in my life,and I might as well do it while i’m young. I wish I had a friend to do cosplay with, but sadly I don’t really know anyone who would be willing to do it.
Still, its a good excuseto camwhore in a awesome costume. xD
