A Cosplayer's Worst Nightmare by kevinbolk A Cosplayer's Worst Nightmare by kevinbolk
Oh, and you folks who are saying "Oh, that wouldn't be so hard", I say to thee "Talk is cheap. PUT UP OR SHUT UP!" ;-D


This was done as a joke for my good friend and fantastic costumer, Camille (aka: Chiara Scuro). I'm working on a costume design for the mascot of a local anime convention, Anime USA. Every year, the staff taps Camille to dress up as said mascot, so as a gag I wanted to design an outfit that would drive any her (or any cosplayer) INSANE. Had to dig deep and remember back to my old cosplay days. 9.9

And why sharks? I dunno, 'cuz sharks are AWESOME!

I'll post the fo' realz designs later. :D

i think i can make that outfit, the light show would be a trouble tough, and i would prolly end up trippin and falling due to the insane high hells and the uber heavy headress, i would have to use the gun as a sort of way to keep balance still that would be hard due to being made of paper mache on a wooden pole, and i would have to replace the top and bottom with a bikini colored with the usa flag, think about it, those need make-up glue to fit, and convention places are always hot as hell, the glue would melt and those would fall leaving shiny places where they were... I so do not want that kind of attention being partially naked and with no way to escape due to the gigantic platforms that would make it impossible to run... n.nU, challenge soo rejected : p

Some people have absolutely no decency. Okay, I made a skin tight cosplay myself, but at least it wasn't that indecent.

I do agree that it would be extremly hard to walk around with this but for different reasons... like it would be hard to walk on those shoes. Other than that I saw a girl here who's costume was like just some small bits of tape on the nipples... xD and a very small thingy on the bottom O.o

Screw making it, just TRY to wear the damn thing, the headpiece alone has to be about 15-20 lbs just right there, it's like taking all the weight a full suit of armor brings and shoves it all on your head.

You should really check out "So, You Are a Cartoonist?"

TomPreston really illustrates how hard it is for a Western cartoonist to work in an anime/manga-influenced enviorment.
