From I-XIII, Crystal Chronicals, and Tactics. So many characters, only about a year's time to get ready? Which character will you be for San-Japan Mach 5? The hero, the villain, or someone in between the mix?

I'm rather having a crazed obsession with antagonists for cosplays as of late. If I manage to loose more weight within a year, I want to attempt Kuja from Dissidia. I originally wanted to cosplay him when I first played FF: IX, but that was back when I was at my heaviest of 230 pounds. I've been working everything off ever since.

Here's to my goal of getting fit enough to cosplay Kuja!

Oh yeah...there's also a chance I may bring back Tseng for my Turks group again. Idk, I'll have to see if we feel like changing up the hosts of the Dating Game to something other than the ShinRa Turks.

I'm planning on cosplaying a character from Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy Versus XIII!! (Either Noctis or Serah, depending on if I can slim down my arms and thighs :( )

My sister is planning on Cosplaying as Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII!


Can't wait to see some awesome Final Fantasy cosplayers at San Japan 55!!! :)

I always feel so bad about not wearing my Reno costume anymore, but I never have any time to do so... T-T

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 09:56 AM
GazeAddict: You and me both! We'll both work hard to get fit for our Final Fantasy cosplays! I'll see you in your epic FF cosplay at Mach 5 for sure. And Lightning? Awesome! I hope we get more main heros and villians, then we can try for a Dissidia photoshoot.

KittyAnne7152: I know the feeling! I always want to cosplay Gokudera or Yosuke, but I never get the time to cosplay them either! I remembered chasing you down a bit when I was Tseng and you were Reno though! That was fun!

I'm thinking about hosting the Dating Game as Kuja and just have Final Fantasy or Square Enix characters host the event at Mach 5.

I'll be cosplaying as Yuna from FF10 with my group. ^.^

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 10:47 AM
Yay! There's another that's shown in Dissidia!

Do you all have a Tidus in your group too?

Pika-Neko
09-27-2011, 11:29 AM
Yup! ^.^ We have Tidus, Wakka, Lulu, Auron, and Rikku. =)

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 12:43 PM
THAT'S IT! There needs to be Final Fantasy photoshoot!

I'm going to work out extra hard so I can be a good Kuja when I meet your FF:X group! I'm also a lil obsessed with Tidus cosplayers as well.

Oh and btw, since you've hosted an SJ Dating Game with me before, want to host Mach 5 Dating Game with me in your Yuna cosplay?

Pika-Neko
09-27-2011, 01:01 PM
Sure! ^.^ It'll be after the cosplay show right? I kinda wanna enter, but then again maybe we'll just do hall cosplay or something.

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 01:20 PM
I'm not sure, I just know it's always at night after some event.

I want to enter the cosplay show too or my enter my Kuja cosplay in the Video Game cosplay contest if they'll be doing it again at Mach 5. I have another cosplay that I plan on entering the Hall contest.

Pika-Neko
09-27-2011, 01:25 PM
Yeah I was thinking of either doing a walkon with my group, or doing the video game contest.

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 01:47 PM
I like TWABI and how they run the Video Game cosplay contest, but I also would love to do an in character walk-on of the coy and elegant villain that is Kuja. Either or would be fun.

I may hold off on doing a Kuja walk-on until I find someone to be my Zidane. (I want to make that cosplay too for someone.)

KittyAnne7152
09-27-2011, 02:04 PM
I'd so offer to be Zidane, I love him and his monkey tail. But I'm already committed to compete with my Hellsing group in the main contest.
If you wanted to enter in just the VG contest though, I'd be so in.
And you're allowed to walk even if you're in the video game contest. If you happen to win something from TWABI, you won't be judged or eligible for any awards with that costume in the main show, but you could still do the walk-on just to show it off and be fabulous and feathered.
So yeah. I'd so love to be Zidane, if that could work out. But alas...

RedeadDie
09-27-2011, 07:06 PM
Hmmm...no no, you have me seriously thinking/plotting now. If you're willing to...then I can do something like that with you. Then again, I'm still not 100% I can fully do Kuja as of yet. (I have a yet to get into the right shape for him, hoping that all goes well.)

Give me a couple of months, if that's ok with you, so I can see how I'm progressing and I'll get back to you on the Zidane thing. (I also have to have a job in order to make certain I can afford to make both.)

Gonna be going as Cloud Strife from FFVII:Advent Children. Didn't get to go to San Japan 4TW but I'm excited I'll be able to show my Cloud cosplay again! Any other FFVII characters? I'd like to be running around the con with other FFVII cosplayers, usually fun that way.

Cloud! Ah! Yes, I am a Final Fantasy VII fan! Although, I don't think I'll be cosplaying Tseng for San-Japan's Mach 5. I'm usually him yearly with my Reno and Elena during the Cosplay Dating Game. We're changing up the hosts this year, so sadly Tseng won't be there.

BUT! I do like Final Fantasy VII characters, so I can't wait to see ya!

Surprisingly enough I do have aspirations to one day dress like a few Final Fantasy Characters, but presently I don't think I am at an ability to attempt either.

I was always partial to Cid from Final Fantasy VII and while I think it would be easy to get it together I still have obvious concerns and fear attempting. Besides that my DREAM costume is freaking Orlandu from Tactics, but I dare not even attempt to craft a copy of Ragnarok or Excalibur.

I have a back-up plan incase I do not quite make my goal for Kuja this year. I'll hold him off for another year, but thankfully my legs will possibly be decent enough for another Final Fantasy cosplay I've wanted to do since I played FFX. (Not Tidus, even though I would if I could atm.)

I really loved Lulu since I first laid eyes on her in the game. If I happen to cosplay her, she'll be the first official female character I've ever cosplayed in my life. Surprise! Plus, I really wanted to work with sewing/carving/dying leather for a long while. Gotta make all those belts by hand now. Think I'll lightly dye the lace at the edge of her clothing as well, but I know a good lace pattern I can use for the edges. Still pondering the whole dress to be leather or just a softer material. Some people go either or, but it doesn't appear (in most official art at least) that it's a whole leather dress. We'll have to see! Maybe a miracle will happen and I do make my Kuja goal!

Riia
04-04-2012, 04:33 PM

On another note, my Lulu cosplay is coming together and...I'm both excited and very nervous. I have NEVER cosplayed a female character.

08-02-2012, 01:33 PM
Just a suggestion, but maybe this is alright, how about Saturday at 2:00 to 2:30 PM for the photoshoot? Everyone can meet in Exhibit Hall A (here's the layout: http://www.san-japan.org/sjinfo/times-layout) near Sleeping Samurai, and from there we can move the location. Any votes? Also, I think it'd be a good idea to make the Facebook event page, so that'd be great if you could make one ^ .

RedeadDie
08-02-2012, 06:18 PM
I won't be able to attend the photoshoot on Saturday because of the cosplay I have to wear for another panel I'm hosting, but good luck with the shoot! Maybe near the end of the panel on Friday, if we have time, we can do a quick mini photoshoot.

I'm really really really extremely nervous about wearing my Lulu cosplay. I mean, I really really want to show it off, but as I've stated, I've never cosplayed a female character. I do have a back-up materials set aside for another Final Fantasy cosplay if I chicken out of dressing up like a woman. It would only really take me a day to make a Vincent Valentine cosplay considering I already pieced together most of the components over the course of the year. (I've been wanting to remake him since he was my first cosplay I did back when I was 13.) The only thing I'd be missing is the golden claw for the con.

We'll see if I decide last minute or not.
