a vamp hunter d cosplay, don't see that much. too bad, both movies are great, classics, and yet nobody does anything for it. maybe years ago, but not anymore. SHOW SOME APPRECIATION FOR THE OLD SCHOOL! I've only been to two cons, one very small, the other had a couple thousand people, so has anyone seen cosplays from the older Gundam series? we need to get rid of the narutards so that there can be more room for other stuff.

Oh wow, that Alucard coat is amazing. I'd so buy it if I had the money Anime cry

And BTW, not all cosplay is expensive. The clothes for my NANA cosplay were about $17 at a thrift store, and I know a girl who made herself a Tao Ren cosplay for about the same price. Especially if you're good at sewing (or know someone who is) you can hit up a thrift store and just alter the clothes to your liking. Cheap and quite fun^^

Of course, if you're going as something fancy, it might just be worth it to pay for a professional design.

O_O I want an Org.XIII jacket. All their clothes look great, but they're a little (read: way) out of my price range. Anime catgrin + sweatdrop

Hmm, I'm still saving money for a stormtrooper armor of SW Ep 3 but I think a shirt or hoodie of Samurai Champloo would be quite cool Very Happy

The only time I will ever seriously consider sewing is for cosplay. There is a NANA coslplay? I suppose if you wanted a specific outfit. The problem for me is that Final Fantasy Advent Children people have TOO MUCH leather, metal, or armor on their clothes (I'm just thinking of Tifa and a few others I could never pull off cosplaying). Professional designs are actually very good, but it depends. Make a cosplay yourself for $17 or buy an already made cosplay for $100 or more (And shipping)?

My solution: Just befriend someone who has sewing skills like Uryu Ishida. And then ask him/her to make me a cosplay of Uryu Ishida.

Very random question: By any chance has anyone come across a Cosplay shop/storefront online that sells a good pair of Kamina glasses?

I know someone out there must know how to make/buy a good pair of them. People DO cosplay as him after all.

Now we have further reason see how sites will have fans go crazy cosplaying because there's yet another cosplay related site.

I'd so love that Captain Reynolds duster... But so much money! I'm too poor...

Anyways, even if you make your own costumes, cosplay is an expensive habit. Getting the right fabric so that it'll last and won't kill you in the heat costs, and so does the props. Which sucks...
