Eh, what the hell. Since I'm gonna get kinda serious with cosplay, I guess I should make one of these. XD;;
So, back history? I started cosplaying with my first Con experience, as Kazuma Kuwabara way back at Anime North 2003. I chose to go as Dark Tournament Kuwabara, with the white coat/pant outfit. Small, old photos and a young me under the cut.
First photo was taken around Halloween 2002, when I made the outfit. Coat was made from a college labcoat/craft paint, sword was crappily done with carboard/craft paint. My hair…is actually pretty long here, just flipped forward, bobbypinned and sprayed to hell to keep it up. Plus some orange hairspray.
Second pic is me and my group at Anime North 2003. Hiei = My Younger Sister, Kuronue = the cosplay goddess of our group, Youko Kurama = My sister's BFF since high school, Yusuke = friend's sister (who wasn't really into the cosplay in the end.)
I actually made a new sword for the con, with resin and dye (oh God, THE MESS I MADE). I swear I still have it around here somewhere. If I find it, I'll take new pics of it if you guys are interested.
Unfortunately, after that I went really half-assed with pretty much all my cosplay (save a Paulie outfit). Usually because I was roped into my sister's group cosplays, which I wasn't always into. They were the stuff cosplayers tend to mock; thankfully, photos of these were rarely taken, and to my knowledge haven't seen the light of the internet...OHWAIT. My sister had some pics of me. Joy. Well, might as well...

Due to illness, I missed last year's AN (I went into withdrawls and everything), and I'm determined to make this year count. My next post will have my project for Anime North 2011.
