AnimeBoston 2011 started today, and I saw someone out in Waltham (near the Boston area) Cosplaying as Bianca (Pokemon B/W) while I was in a car.
I had to blink a few times, and when I realized it, the traffic light turned green. My mom was like WTF.
Anybody else seen cosplay in person, whether it be you, or someone else,
or maybe in a local convention or nearby one>
Anyways, I'd cosplay as either Junpei Shibayama from Digimon Frontier, or Ed from Dinosaur King if I were not to pick a "mascot-style" outfit.

I'd rather be in a mascot outfit. Preferably as Guilmon from Digimon Tamers.

I went to Armageddon Expo in Auckland last year, and there were lots of cosplayers there, both good and bad. I made sure to attend the Cosplay Parade . . . show . . . display . . . thing, though, which is where most of the good ones were.

This year, I plan to go as either Hatsune Mikuo or N.

Also, if you're near Boston . . . WHY IN ARCEUS' NAME ARE YOU NOT THERE!? D:

To answer your question... I'm not made of money.

We had an anime con on campus yesterday, in fact. Quite a few cosplayers including several Pokemon trainers (and I was among those trainer cosplayers. Three guess as to what trainer I was.) I do enjoy cosplay quite a bit, and I always participate whenever I get the chance.

I've cosplayed a few times. Mostly as a loli/maid.

I'm not so sure I can afford an outfit this year, though (Anime Next). Might just go with generic school girl. I'd love to cosplay as a Pokemon trainer, though, and carry around my Pichu plushie. ^^

Last month I went to MegaCon and cosplayed for the first time there as Mithos Yggdrasil from Tales of Symphonia. I want to hopefully go to MetroCon, but I'm not sure if that'll happen. If it does though, I'll probably end up going as Mithos again, because I really want to find more Symphonia characters before considering another cosplay.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone cosplay actually.

I've always thought it was kinda stupid though, so I don't actually want to do try it or anything. lol

Speaking of cosplay.. I can't believe I missed the Otakucon at SM..

I've never cosplayed before, but I want to~~ Supposed to cosplay this April, but I missed the chance. xD
If I do ever get a chance to cosplay (hopefully), I'll maybe cosplay as the "girl version" of Ciel from Black Butler.. and maybe Sebastian himself? xD

Although I have seen many others cosplay. As Ichigo, a Zombie (PVZ), and etc.

I've been cosplaying since 2008, but I had never actually went to an anime convention until Ohayocon 2009 (which was at the very end of January). Since then I've been to a total of 15 cons (including ones that I have returned to). My 16th will be Colossalcon, which is coming up in June.
I've cosplayed to every one of them and have brought at least one new cosplay to each. So as you could probably tell (even with out looking at my intro topic or About Me section on my profile) that cosplay consumes most of my life. XD lol
I am a huuuge nerd. XD;;

I wish I had the money to cosplay. I'm supposed to be going to Anime Expo this summer, then Otakon, but between all that I won't have any money left for cosplay. I've always wanted to though. ;_; My hair is similar to Yui's from K-ON so I guess I would do her even though I'm not too familiar with the series, but I also wanted to do Yuna or Lenne from FF.

There's like at least 10 conventions a year where I live in my state so I've seen tons of cosplays and know lots of cosplayers. I've never had much interest in cosplaying, myself, though. But if I were to, I'd cosplay as Jericho or Edge.(don't know if anyone will know who they are xD) I also wouldn't mind cosplaying as Piplup while my friend goes as Dawn.

On the topic of cosplay, does anyone know where to get that Pokémon hat? The one Touko has - the pink, female version. X_X

Don't think you can get them anywhere. Unless you can get someone to commission one for you. You can make one by getting a plain white cap and painting it with fabric paint, that's how a lot of the cosplayers do it.^^

I haven't seen anyone cosplay in person, but I've seen many people cosplay online. (Let's say, I come from a part of Britain where not many people cosplay XD).
However, I've really wanted to cosplay myself and perhaps go to a con in Birmingham or something. >.> But if I had to, I'd rather cosplay as Haruhi Suzumiya, Yui from K-ON!, Yuri from Angel Beats! or Rukia from Bleach. :)

When thinking of cosplays, I'm debating on whether to invest on a Hetalia Japan cosplay or not. I saw a huge number of cosplayers at Anime Festival Asia in Singapore but most were vocaloids. I was also surprised to see G Gundam cosplayers there as well.

Really late but, yeah, should I ever decided on the trainer outfit, I'll just paint my own hat. XD The rest of the outfit is simple enough.

Not a cosplay type of person, nor do I plan to become one, but cosplays can look p good, when done well.

I like cosplay. been may and Natsumi.This July I will be medicham and I think I will stick with it. I seem to prefer pokemon over trainers.

I've never been to a convention or anything myself :( I'd love to go one day though. However, that being said, I have seen pictures from people who have gone to conventions and got to see cosplayers. I think my favorite one i've seen thus far was a group of three at anime north who were dressed up like naruto infused guitar hero people. It looked really cool and it was creative.

I don't know how to even go about with costumes, but if I ever did I'd so go as someone from Ace Attorney or as June from 999.

In theory, I can cosplay as pretty much any character I want. In practice, however, I'm limited only to characters that I can reasonably replicate using the clothes in my own closet and stuff I can buy from stores.

I wanted to go as either Keiichi Maebara or Naoto Shirogane to FanimeCon, but my plans were ruined by a severe illness. Oh, well. There's always next year.

Well sweeties, I have cosplayed as the following:

Mario
Link
Ash
Batman
Antoine Dodson
An arbitrary save point.
A graphical glitch.
A character to a fictitious anime I made up in order to fool posers/people who try to be cool for liking obscure anime. XD

I love seeing others cosplay, and I enjoying cosplay, myself. :D

Though, I've only been to my local con, Naka Kon. It's a pretty good sized con, though. My first cosplay was five or so years ago, when I was Sasuke from Naruto, and some other friends were Gai and Kakashi, back when we were into Naruto. More recently, I've been Light from Death Note, and Edward from Fullmetal Alchemist. The latter is my most recent. For Naka 2012, I'm going as Ash (hopefully B&W version). If I pull that off, a friend of mine is going with me as Brock. We're already thinking up stupid in-character stuff to do. =u=

How do you EVEN cosplay as those XD

I was supposed to go this month, but my parents didn't let me go to the anime con >:I

Anyways, I'd probably want to dress up as a normal person in a school uniform and pretend to be a 100 different characters at once. /win

You just got to be creative, sweetie. XD

For the save point, I just had a giant sign that said "Save here!", with a list for people to write their names on. XD

The graphical glitch was a bunch of NES "garbage" tiles I printed off and taped together. XD

Lol.

I'm going to Anime Expo this coming June, and I'm going to be cosplaying as some random neko -_____- fail.

I really want to cosplay as Hatsune Miku or Gumi...but sadly, if I go to otacon this year, I won't have enough money for a costume. T_T

I've cosplayed many times. I made my first costume in 2002 when I was a kid for a school spirit week in middle school. Been more active in the community since 2006 when my skills got a lot better in wig craft, sewing, pattern making, and jewelry making. It's an expensive hobby and I'm probably going to stop in a few years. Next costume I'm going to make is Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier. My next conventions are Anime Expo and AM^2 Con next month.

This October at NYC Comic Con, I really want to cosplay for the first time. So I have around 3 ideas so far (and since I want to go multiple days maybe two of the three is possible).

Stocking from PSG
A Ranger (Female) from Pokemon Black/White
Greece (Hetalia)

I haven't really cosplayed myself... but I've seen some cosplayers, both IRL and online (if you're on dA and a member of some D.GM clubs, you get cosplay pictures in your inbox almost ever day). Since a year or two I've been going to F.A.C.T.S. (Belgium) and last year I want to Japan Expo (France). I've also been to the Elf Fantasy Fair (The Netherlands), but that's not limited to Anime. Needless to say that each of those events is crowded with cosplayers. I hope to go to Abunai!! (The Netherlands),
FACTS and Japan Expo (Belgium) later this year... And yes, I do have a wish to cosplay, but probably will never get around making an outfit.
I'd love to cospaly as a D.Gray-man or Fire Emblem character. The former since I love the uniforms so much, and the latter since the outfits are pretty cool.

Best thing is though, last year, when I went to Japan Expo. My friend and I kind of got lost on our way to the hotel (busses didn't drive and we were cooked. Litterally). Even then I was already into D.Gray-man, and having a Lavi and Allen cosplayer guide us to our hotel was just too funny for words...
Lavi's theme kept playing in my head all they way through. :B

I was going to cosplay as No Face or some "Tales of" character for Manifest this year. Though, because off lack of money, I'm going to have to take that plan down. I'd love to give cosplaying a go, though. :O
