Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pintrest Pals and World of cosplay buddies,

This weeks question is a simple one.

Do you think that the masquerade or cosplay contest held during a con should be only anima and manga based or also Western characters?  

Some cons are all anime, some are all U.S. comics but should they be separate? 


Cosplay Sat. How to make money as a cosplayer

Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pinterest Pals, and World of Cosplay Buddies

So I eventually want to host my own con and than I saw this video today.

I know many of us, me included, are trying to make some sort of living off of our cosplays and related items. So my question is this, this circle she mentions how would you think that would work?

What would be more profitable us making our own con or working solo? A con hosted by us and vendored ( made that word up) by us;or us continuing to go to cons all over the place? What do you guys think would make us most successful? What would be required? Feel free to go crazy

Cosplay Sat. – Your Thoughts on a cosplay pannel

Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pinterest Pals and, World Of Cosplay Folks,

What would you guys think of a panel hosted by yours truly that was all about how and where and what to watch out for when buying predone cosplay online?

Would you attend this panel?

and what would be most important to you to learn if you attended?


Cosplay Sat. Just how important are Props?

Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pinterest Pals, and World of Cosplay buddies,

This weeks question matters because sometimes its not the costume its the props that make us step back and choose another character to cosplay.

How Crucial is it that you have the matching props?  Also during a convention most hand props you have to  gasp hold in your hand all day !  If you wanna buy stuff you only have one hand to do so and than no hands free once your treasure is now yours . . . .than its a loooooong walk tot he car or your hotel room to ditch the new stuff.

 

So this weeks question is how important are props to cosplaying? 

 

Just think about it hands free is great but what is Batman without his Batarang or catwoman with out her whip or Harley Quinn with out her hammer?

Does it truly matter?

 


Cosplay Sat. Movie vs the Comic

 

 

So its fairly straight forward – Movie VS. the Anima or Movie Vs. the Manga?

What do you choose when you cosplay?

Each version is slightly different.  For instance would any one recognize ed from the full alchemist movie as ed or would they recognize him from the series?

 

BONES, Fullmetal Alchemist, Alfons Heiderich, Edward Elric, Postcard

 

 

Same thing with the joker which version do you do and what do you ultimately get seen as? I did Arkham origins joker and everyone thought I was heaths version just not done very well.

So this weeks question is simple: What version is the  “true” version the one that immediately gets recognized correctly at a con?
