Sounds like fun.

Not fun.

Interesting pics there.
I have seen the cosplayers at the Kyoto International Manga Museum. They have incredible costumes.

Are you sure that is an anime convention? Looks more like a sci fi convention. If it was a real anime convention the woman with the piercings would be wearing a pink wig, be 50 pounds heavier, and still be wearing the same size costume.

So...you're saying the corset would be functional rather than decorative?

A lot of the anime people, I wish I knew who did their costume/makeup work. Costume-wise, I landed an excellent seamstress for my work, but I still can't do fantasy character makeup right at all. For example, if I tried to do a drow, I'd end up looking that I had the bad end of a coal mine rather than an elf.

I have thought of buying an airbrush set and experimenting with that, but money is limited until I'm out of college, so that project (like many others) gets put on the back burner.

My 14yo daughter is interested in this stuff and draws it a lot. I went to a couple of conventions with her. A lot of older chubby guys by themselves running around I tend to think these things draw pedophiles like moths to a flame. Check out the whole Japanese Gothic Lolita thing. Needless to say we don't go to these anymore.

With people who don't go to anime conventions. She's slumming it.
