Happy Almost Halloween, my spooky darlings! I hope it’s as scary, sweet, or pumpkiny as you want! ^+^
One of the key and the best parts of this holiday is of course the costumes, dressing up! It has always been a joy of mine and I am glad I can encompass a character now to connect to others and bring joy to children’s days. =) I did a COSPLAYS I’VE DONE TIMELINE POST ON HERE. Yet, now, I need YOUR HELP! I have 20 ideas for cosplays I would like or love to do, but on several, I am not sure it is me or I would look good in them. I DO only pick characters who I like and can become for full immersion, so no worry there.
If you could in the comments type which ones you think I could do or should try, it would be exceedingly helpful. 🙂
Please have a safe, enchanting, and whimsical Halloween.
20 Future Cosplay Ideas For Me I’m Interested In?
This is the category I am the most jazzed to try but had the most trouble finding the right characters and cosplay. I have issues being ‘bad’ naturally, so I need a character I enjoy. When I like characters, I can act and portray them. The CLOSEST I have done for a partly evil character is “Evie” from Disney Channel’sDescendants series. Still, I WANT to try this ‘it’s good to be bad’ thing! LOL!
So, thinking hard and with some research, I have THREE ones I believe I could encompass well AND have a blast doing. Do you think I can do one of these divine, delectable evil ladies or should I stick to cute and nice characters?
Persephone from “Lore Olympus-” This webtoon is MY LIFE and I aspire to be our darling spring goddess. There are also so many stunning outfits to pick from too. However, I am not sure I am comfortable painting my skin pink and for these characters, their unique colored skin tones are iconic and almost needed. Her Queen of the Underworld dress is mystical!
Chi from Chobits (maid outfit:-) I adore Chi from CLAMP’s “Chobits!” Her innocence and tenderness are precious. I have a darling lolita style maid outfit that looks like something Chi would wear. Sadly, it has been slowly falling apart over the years. So, I ordered a newer one, yet it doesn’t…flatter me the way I wanted it to. It could be me. So, I do technically have CHOICES I can use, but it wouldn’t mind being on the lookout for one for a good price OR another one of Chi’s beautiful outfits. I do have her robot ears. I would just need her wig and maybe, since I LOVE props, either the picture book she loves or the plush bunny that is the mascot of the show. IF I COULD, I would pick my little buddy Sumomo! She is TOO kawaii and fits on Chi’s shoulders! =D Wakey, Wakey Exercises! <3
Princess Jasmine’s purple outfit at the end of the first movie, “Disney’s ‘Aladdin.'” Jasmine is my favorite princess and I have dreamt of cosplaying as her, from the age of three until, well, now! HA! However, I was afraid to cosplay as her for two reasons: one, like with my concerns for Megara, she is a Disney Princess and there is a lot of pressure on becoming such essential royals. And I am not as thin or pretty as her. And two, I am not from the same culture as Jasmine. I believe in cosplay equality no matter of size, race, culture, gender, ability, and such, yet I have a fear of misrepresenting or offending anyone. Still, I really love this outfit. Her red, Ummm… ‘slave’ outfit is also a favorite of mine, but I would tone it down a bit since I work with kids, lol!
Esmeralda from Disney’s “The Hunchback of Norte Dame-“ Another stunning, strong Disney lady! Her attitude, warmth, cheekiness, cleverness, and sense of righteousness are so inspiring. Plus, she is drop-dead stunning! I would love to be playful like her on the convention floor. Yet, I have the same cultural concerns with her as I do with Jasmine.
Cutie Honey-Being such an avid fan of magical girls fanatic, being one of the first ones seems like it is destiny. I love her normal outfit and transformation one! Yet, if I did cosplay as her, I would make it a PG version. There are some aspects (such as her clothes starting to rip away when she is hit) and components of the show that are definitely not appropriate. LOL! But, it would be fun to be Honey! 🙂
Mew Mew Berry from “Tokyo Mew Mew: A La Mode-” Berry was my favorite character from the magical girls series, “Tokyo Mew Mew,” although she was only in the manga, not in the original anime. With the new anime series already getting HYPE (WOOT,) I HOPE Berry will make an appearance. If not, at least we can have a new generation of Mew Mew Fans and I could maybe get the adorable Berry out to shine!
Rinna Rogue OR Purple Tigeress from “Miraculous Ladybug-“ This show is rocking! My hubby and I are obsessed with this French anime! Although I love Ladybug, I don’t think I would look as appealing in her skin-tight one-piece. So, why not one of her loyal Miraculous Holders? Rinna Rogue and Purple Tigeress are both form-fitting one-pieces too, but due to their styling or material, I would not be as intimidating. Plus, they both have such flare and growth! Girl power!
Princess Sakura from “Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles-” My first convention cosplay ever over ten years ago! Yet, sadly, I have gained too much weight to wear it anymore. *Cries* Luckily, CLAMP makes a ton of gorgeous outfits for their characters and Princess Sakura is no exception. And I have a short wig I can use. Just need to find the right one.
Ginger from “Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar-“ FAMILY COSPLAY DREAM! Derrick and I love this adorable anime! We always said if we have kids, we could play the grown-ups, him the goofy conductor fairy who is the teacher to the little ones, Elder (and he is madly in love with my character,) and myself the rain fairy who plays the violin, Ginger, lovely and calm. There are 3-5 kid fairies in the series and one other adult we see. But, we have nieces and a nephew now. So, MAYBE…lol!
I’d also love to redo my Mai Valentine (battle city outfit) from “Yu-Gi-Oh!” This was the second cosplay for a con and my first closet. I had SO much fun making it, but finding purple denim that fit me was hard in 2013, lol! I still have the props, wig, boots, and duel disk with her legendary harpy cards. Maybe finding the clothing would be easier now?
All the blessings of the night with you as you transform into whoever you want to be! Stay geeky!
