Hey guys! It seems like there's at least a few of us out there who have an interest in cosplay, so why don't we discuss?

Let's set down some rules first though:

-Larger images must be put as a link and not directly posted (mostly because there are some cosplays out there that scare the heck out of me, and I'm sure everyone else).

-When you post an image directly, put it under a spoiler if you can. Also, label what series, and if it's excellent/average/interesting/eye-burning if you're being serious. Also, say if that is you in the photo if so! :)

-Questions about cosplay are very welcome. I don't know much about sewing myself, but you never know- you may be able to find some help (not just from me, if anyone wants to chip in).

-Maybe even talk about characters you'd like to cosplay as, or think you'd be good as. Even feel free to post a photo of yourself and ask who you think you look like!

Okaie dokie! So let's get to it! Post away!

Well, there are no conventions around here, so not much reason for me to cosplay. XD

But if I ever would, it would be either as Genma or Sanji, because they are two of my favourite characters, and I look like them. XD

There's been a number of conventions popping up in Australia since 2000. The one I go to is called Animania, and is held in Sydney, though it seriously lacks when compared to Manifest in Melbourne. The only reason I go to Animania is for the cosplay. We don't even get voice actors like other cons do, so we have to rely on ourselves for fun X3

Here's a pic of some of the Naruto cosplayers from last year. There weren't as many that time as the year before though.

Click! (sorry about the quality. It's the Hinata girl's camera. Oh, and I'm the Tsunade. My friend Chris is the random ninja guy who looks a little like Kakashi)

I'd likely be Asuma or Kankurou. I look a lot like Kankurou when he takes his "Tsunade-bra hat" off. ;) And if I dyed my hair and grew out my beard, I'd make a fair Asuma.

I wish I could cosplay as Kakashi, but God had other plans, I suppose.

Umm...who can I cosplay as? XD
Why not someone come out with a suggestion? I mean for Narutowise.
For Bleach, I think I can cosplay and Soi Fong, Yachiru and Rukia pretty easily because of their hair style. There's no convention and stuff here so there's no need for me to cosplay. There's nowhere I can buy those clothes, so no cosplay for me. :p

Oh I'm tempted to... but I'll keep it as a way to fight the horrors of Man Faye. (I've also got another ace or two down my sleeve, mwahaha)

The Kankuro and Tsunade ones are kick-ass!
The asuma one isn't too bad.

Yea, that Gin one really does look like him. xD

That Gin guy rocks, if only he was a little bit younger looking, he'd be perfect.
