Otakon 2017 Cosplays?

22 posts in this topic

Hey all! As inspired by ll0tus here's the annual (and never too early) cosplay plans thread! I plan on bringing the same Senbonzakura Mikuo as last year, though I also hope to have a more casual "Street Pop" version was well. For those that don't know what the Street Pop Miku looks like, here's a pic from CosplayFu.com:

The only bad part about the above cosplay is that it'll cost me like $200 <_<, and that's not including the hat for some stupid reason. If that version of Miku looks familiar then you're right... it's what's used as the proper module for the song "Kagerou Days" or "Heat Haze Days" on Hatsune Miku Project Diva F2nd for PS3/PSVita. Awesome song, and it'd be great to play it whilst in that cosplay.

For reference, here's a classic "mirror selfie" shot of me in Senbonzakura Mikuo:

That was taken at Anime Central (ACen) 2016, a con I totally recommend, in my hotel room but that's not the point of this thread. lol.

Anyway, post your plans/ideas for cosplays for this year's first Otakon in Washington DC! Do you have something special planned? Are you recycling cosplays like I am and likely others will? SOUND OFF! xD

Yeah sorry... we even tried to plan it out where to meet etc.... We can make it work this year given the con center is flippin' huge and it should be easier to spot each other. lol.

Working on the props for Kiritio from Sword Art Online Ordinal Scale Movie. (seeing the film on release day) Finished the ear piece for it and I must say first time crafting with EVA foam and I'm impressed on how it turned out, made a backup with a more snug fit for the ear. Next is the sword and if possible the scabbard for the sword to go on the back.

Good stuff! I sadly can't see SAO: OS on day 1 due to work (I could ask that day off, but I already have Anime Boston off so I don't wanna push it), but I'll see it eventually... I've also gotta finish season 2 (GGO, Mother Rosario, etc).

If we're talking cosplay for this year?

...ehehe. I have nothing planned. I guess I could bring Stein, depending on my mood.

'course, I still gotta register and stuff first. ^^;

Any advice for a first time cosplayer.  I'm looking for something simple to do for Otakon.

I'd say go for something you like and/or can pull off with stuff you might have lying around. That's pretty much what my first real cosplay was, for the most part, supplemented with a trenchcoat from the thrift store, and a bucket hat from Wally World.(I should really revisit Narutaki someday, and do him better.)

Bringing back my costume of Kevin Owens from WWE. I have never had so much positive feedback from one costume in my life, so why mess with a good thing? I actually just bought two more shirt designs and a new set of fight trunks for it so I could actually mix and match multiple versions of KO's in-ring gear and do it all weekend long! Hooray for versatile yet practical costuming!

o hay

Still debating on whether or not to bring Stein; if I do, I need to touch up the headscrew. Or just wait until Neko. I dunno yet.

I plan on cosplaying as Ramba Ral from Mobile Suit Gundam and possibly a Team Rocket Grunt. I've done both of these at Yama-Con in Pigeon Forge, TN (a much smaller and newer con). This will be my first time cosplaying at Otakon.

I was the generic Dead Anime Mom last year, and I'm thinking of doing it again this year just because it was very comfortable and got a lot of laughs.

Current Plans:

Ann Takamaki (Persona 5)

Goro Akechi (Persona 5)

Ouma Kokichi (Danganronpa V3)

Plan to get Goro later this week. If it doesn't work out, I plan to go as Chiaki Nanami from Danganronpa 2 instead. Though I'm 90% sure I'll be Goro.
