So, as of today, I'm officially registered for Connecticon! Yay!
Uhm... and as this is my first time doing this, I still haven't a damn clue who I want to cosplay. My first thought was someone from Attack on Titan, of course, so I started gathering pieces for it a while ago, but I got as far as the boots and the pants before I realized I don't actually know who I could cosplay, and actually pull it off. I wanted to be Mikasa, but my problem there is, while I have short black hair and wouldn't need a wig, (because I don't know how to wear one anyway), Mikasa is pale and doesn't wear glasses, so I thought it'd look really weird. Plus, I really don't know how to embody her attitude.
Then I got the idea that I could do Amon from The Legend of Korra. I really
liked that idea, as I actually know more or less how to actually act kinda like him (Hey, I'd get to be an asshole for an entire weekend! Haha, go me. No, I'm totally just kidding.) Plus, it wouldn't actually matter what I looked like because he's got that whole hooded masked thing going for him, and plus I really feel like I'd have a lot more fun with this one. I practiced his stance, and how he kinda stood/walked with his hands behind him, and the idea took hold and I just, yeah.
The only problem with that one is the cost of it, and plus I've already got like 30% of something I could turn into something from SNK... I had this ridiculous idea that I could wear my fursuit with a Survey/Recon Corps uniform, but then I asked myself, "Is that really
something I should do?" I don't know...
Then I thought I could be Korra, because we have a similar skin tone, but I'm not sure how well I could act as her character, either. We kinda have wayyy different personalities, and I feel like I'd be pretty uncomfortable trying. Although, that having been said, I would
probably be okay with acting as Amon, the antagonist of the first season. Go figure.
Oh yeah, and the thing with my glasses. X.x;
I don't know, I always seem to ask you guys stuff XD What do you think? Have any of you cosplayed before? I've never done it before, so... any advice would be really great. :3
