Funny story though: one of our conventions overlapped with the day of the rodeo, so the hotel, where the convention was at, was booked with rodeo cowboys/cowgirls and otakus. When the rodeo-goers came in, their expressions were hilarious. They looked as if they were Alice in Wonderland. It was that strange to them. Cosplay is like another hidden, unknown world around here. Unless you're an otaku, most don't know what cosplay is.
Although, I think most of the time, cosplayers just get stares, has anyone ever gotten a rude reaction?
Well it's one thing to wear an akatsuki cloak for a Con and another to wear it for warmth. That guy always draws really rude stares as the passers-by think he's gone broke in the mind
But I don't think I've ever been confronted for cosplaying...I mean, who would stop a Ryu?
I've grown an interest in cosplaying lately and would love to try it out when/if I go to San Diego Comic Con- the one convention I really want to go to. I think I can handle the costumes fine since I'll be most comfortable wearing something that's not so over the top. (I also want to make my own instead of buying it online.) However, it's the hair that I'm stumped on. Some characters have hairstyles that seem impossible.
I was thinking male hairstyles are harder? They all spike up in wierd ways and are incredibly difficult to shape even with like a bucket of gel...
I mean you have heaps of anime characters who just have long hair which flows down; is that impossible? (I know nothing about girls hair )
Unless you intended to cosplay as a bishounen, then that's the hugest pain ever. My only advice is gel, gel and more gel. Otherwise some hair spray or something.
You could use wigs....they sell anime-cosplay wigs online. Otherwise, you can get a wig from Party City or other costume stores and style the wig at home. It can get uncomfortable and hot if you're outside too long, but wigs are much easier to style than hair. (in my experiences, not sure about others.)

Since Steins;Gate was the best thing that came out of the Spring anime I stumble upon this, she has the right look.
I have shoulder-length hair that has a slight wave in it so I'll need a lot of hair spray if I were to use my own hair. When I say a lot, I mean A LOT. Especially when the character I want to cosplay is Road Kamelot.
Just had a..toys con or whatever its called here.
But anyway, it had coooosplay!
So me being me who loves people in cosplay, decided to snap a few shots.
Taken on a 8 megapixels phone so its not clear but I want to share!
Singapore Toys Festa-cum-animecosplay:
Obviously none of them were professionally done but at least effort was put in
uh and I'm sorry for poor quality and bad camera angles..
Anyone here can reccomend a pattern for shinigami shihakusho? I'm picking the best..
A pattern? What pattern are you referring too? I thought they all look the same.
Thanks very much, Nello. Good luck to you!
