~Cosplay Time~

So just to say I also did fan art, here is (left to right) a vampire (ShadoGal Mai), a secret agent (Yuriko), and a space academy cadet (Reiko) swapping their outfits in a typical Japanese cosplay fashion. Mai actually enjoyed playing with Yuriko's gun, which, thankfully, was not loaded. ^^;

I changed the colors of the Shougo Infantary uniform Reiko uses to wear to navy blue for this pic because she has been promoted to squad leader. For those of you who don't know my "Shougo Taisen" series, please check this --> [link] where you can see the Shougo trio relaxing a bit at school. Reiko is the last one far behind, the one with the eye patch and ponytail. She's a tomboy and probably the only girl who's not peeking at the boys. ;p

Thanks for coming by!

Thank you! :blowkiss:
I pay special attention to a character's personality and how it affects the way they pose and behave. I used a lot of that in this picture. ^^

That was the time when creating outfits was my main goal, while next I started rigging models for animation.
By now my main goal is to create new characters from scratch, and the 1st one is this bunny fellow you see in my latest pics. ^^

There are these "cosplay bars" in Japan where you are served by cute girls dressed as French maids and other cosplay fetishes. There countless places like that just in the first block around the Akihabara station in Tokyo. What 20 years ago used to be privilege of the rich has now popularized as I never thought it would. There used to be one bar where you are served by a robotic maid who takes your order, brings it to you and then collects the bill. I wonder if they dress that robot in French maid costume now... LOL :lol:

:laughing: A robotic maid that'll be something to see.
I once watched on tv were someone went to a game/anime convention... they even had little shops mainly for cosplay outfits. Some of the costumes were amazing but very pricey. :wow: I'd like to go to a convention one time but none of my friends like anime so no one would go ^^; I think the cosplayers might scare them even more :laughing: especially if there's any 'crossplayers'

I never went to conventions myself, but nonetheless those they make in American don't impress me much comparing to the doujinshi conventions from Japan.
Anyway, I think cosplayers scare people even in Japan - don't be fooled by the idea that people see that everyday over there. :XD: ;p

Because i'm in the UK there aren't many conventions there's only 1 i know of that appears every couple of years but I'd have to travel far to get to it plus it's expensive so that's off putting. ^^;
I guess if you saw cosplayers everyday someone would want to know what's going on. :laughing:

Yup, but fan art out of my own characters. It's a bit odd, I know... ;p

It's cool! And it's original. Well, there has to be some other person in the world who's done that, but yeah. It hasn't caught on yet, so it's original to me. :D

Hehe, Mai is a predator by nature but she doesn't need weapons since she is a vampire after all. ;p
