I just wanted to know how many cosplayers we have here.
I've only done it once, it was at Ikasucon in 2012. I ordered Ash's hat, a clip-on Poke Ball, a small Lucario that I put on my shoulder, and I made my own Trainer's gloves.
What was really cool about that weekend was what happened on the first day. Ikasucon had a special guest, Eric Stuart. He played Brock and James, and Kaiba from YuGi-Oh! I got him to sign my Poke Ball and recite the Team Rocket intro.
I never thought I'd be so giddy around famous people, but I was wrong lol. I walked away with my signed Poke Ball and let out a little squeal.
I want to go again next year. I found Kirito's sword (below) on Amazon for $147. It was then I decided I'd cosplay as Kirito at next year's convention. There's a few things I need to do first, though.
1- Lose 30-40 pounds to get in the 150s. I don't want to be fat Kirito.
2- Sell my PS3 to help with the costs. I did the math, and I'll need to pay a little under $400 for everything.
How many cosplayers do we have? Who have you dressed up as, or who do you want to dress as?
