I get ahead of myself often. This is why I’ve already answered this question in the favorite outfit part. Not that it matters I can elaborate. I have a certain gift for going on and on about nothing in particular. Have I mentioned how much I appreciate your patience.

Who would you cosplay as
I have cosplayed once or twice in my day and the experience has taught me some harsh realities. I am not quite the prideful, put together special unicorn princess I see myself as in my head. Rather I am a sloppy, slovenly dredge that is unfit to tie Ciel Phantomhive’s shoe laces. (i.e I tried cosplaying as Ciel, it did not go well…)
In time I learned that the two essential elements in any good cosplay are 1- the costume must be easy to put together and 2- the costume must be comfortable enough to walk around in all day. Bonus points if I can get away with not wearing a wig. Those things are hot.
With these stringent criteria in mind, we can quickly widdle down the options to 2.
Killua: as I’ve mentioned in a previous post I am an ardent fan of Killua’s casual cool style. He does lean in a bit into the brat fashion at the beginning of the series what whit the constant skateboard and all but in general he knows how to dress. I also got m hands on one of those weird octobackpacks. The extra straps are useless but otherwise it’s a perfectly good backpack I can keep all my stuff in. Yay. You have no idea how much of a perk storage is.
Neferpitou. Just a tad more effort to gather those specific pieces still shorts and a blazer are pretty common items that are unlikely to become painful at the end of a long convention day. More importantly though, I actually sort of look like Pitou already. Arguably, Pitou looks a little like Killua…My hair and tan are all pretty much spot on. Well my hair is a bit longer but it’s that colour. My eyes are grey but shift between a few colours (no quite the right ones but coloured contacts work well on me). I’m on the short and skinny side and a good sports bra can give me a slightly more androgynous figure. Also I radiate pure evil, so that’s handy. Basically it’s a look I can pull off with minimal effort.
As a plus, most people will look much more impressive standing next to me. (My Griffith cosplay turns an average guy into a very believably proportioned Guts).
Wow this post actually got me a bit excited. Maybe I’ll go out together a costume right now.

Who DOESN’T love Killua?? For a child assassin he’s as cool as they come. He was a very surprising character!
With wonderful growth!!!!
I want to see your cosplay pics!
I love cosplaying. I’ve done it for several cons. I have elaborate costumes with body suits, tights, wigs, face paint… Things that make going to the bathroom painful. And I have costumes that I can wear anywhere if I remove a few choice pieces. Before I cosplayed it was Halloween and I went all out with my mother’s help. No anime cosplays yet, though I would really love to do Ed or winry from fullmetal alchemist.
Maybe I’ll share some pics someday. I have year’s worth.
Please do! Ed would be nice but the prosthetic might get annoying by the end of the day
That’s the joy of the long red jacket and the white gloves. Though, If i wanted to the prosthetic would be fun on the right occasion.
Not sure who I’d be. I’ve only cosplayed twice in my life so far. If I shave my sideburns, I might be able to pull off looking like Chrollo possibly. Hahaha!
As long as you manage those earrings
Quite true. Hahahaha! XD
