    buying vs. making own cosplay.  Empty buying vs. making own cosplay.

    Post by Guest Fri Jun 25, 2010 8:09 pm

    I can't help but feel a sense of pride when I'm dressed in my own self-made costumes, even when they start falling apart at the seams.

    On the otherhand, a store bought costume is professional looking. Most japanese/asian cosplayers order their costume premade from an online shop. They dress in accurate costumes for professional photoshoots. It is a different sort of hobby overseas though, people seem to take it less seriously and just have fun with it.

    It still feels like I'm cheating when I dress in the store bought costume though. I almost feel like lying when people ask me if I made it myself after taking my picture. /is dishonest.

    This is not an issue if we're cosplaying as our own UTAUs though~ what are your thoughts?

    oh yes! and post your cosplay line-up for next year

    I'm going as:
    Rin from the BL game Togainu no Chi
    Momoko from Sumomomo momomo
    Gokudera from Reborn! (not manly enough looking for this ahh.)

    and perhaps my UTAU if I can find a oversized sweater in this season.
