Hmm... I have a little dillemma. I have no good reason to cosplay, but I'd still like to. I also have no ability to make good costumes. But we all knew that.
I really just like to dress up. :-/
So... I had a few ideas, but I dunno. Here are some potentials. Opinions please.
- I have a great dress for Rakka of Haibane Renmei, but no wings (So hard to find this time of year) or halo. The halo wouldn't be too hard, since it's the ugly dress she wears when she still needs the funny makeshift halo holder.
- I have the crappy Envy costume we all know. Not sure if my hair will still do that, but it's worth trying out, maybe.
- I have the means for a pretty complete Mireille (Noir) costume, however I am without very long hair, or... *ahem* figure.
-Have the means to do a bajillion Misa-Misa (Death Note) outfits, and at my current length, I can style my hair almost identically. Though my hair's a little dark nowadays...
-Have an ensemble that lightly resembles an Azumanga Daioh summer uniform. (By accident too. The sailor shirt was fifty cents at a garage sale!) With a little work... Tomo-chan?
-Have a Winry mechanic jumpsuit, bandana and tank top (Not tube; can't wear those... for several reasons) My hair's a little longer now, so I can cover it with the bandana and make it look like I have long hair by letting the front locks hang down
-Also have a great Winry travel getup- Jacket, skirt, boots thing. I'd need to get an extension clip, though, and matching my hair might be rough.
-A few pieces that might make a half-arsed Edward or Movie!Al (Although I think my little sister looks so much like Movie Al, I should try to coax her into doing that.)
Slightly unrelated; I wanna try doing finger-waves in my hair and trying a 1920's flapper style... or maybe a Roxy Heart costume (Chicago)
Or... I could just waste an afternoon playing with all of these and do a narcissistic photoshoot. Five minute cosplay modules, I could call them...
I'd just feel like an egotist or a net-whore by doing that. I swear, I can't budge or coax any of my friends to even step on camera, let alone in costume. So lonely.
