Just wondering if there are any fellow cosplayers on this form, whether Anime or Comics, if you do what conventions have you gone to and who did you cosplay as? I've been to Anime North and Matsuricon as Sosuke Aizen from Bleach

Id love too but it would feel sort of pointless since we dont have that kind of conventions here really.. Heh, we dont even have comic books, I get mine online.

Last night, while on liberty, I saw a group of girls cosplaying as japanese schoolgirls. pink dresses, the neckerchiefs, the works. I realized one looked really weird, almost awkward. Turned out being a dude. No more cosplay in my life. Too many freaks.

one of the last times i went to steel city i saw a guy dressed as iron man. i inquired about his costume and the man said its made of fiberglass and took about 10 months to make

he also told me about a time at a show where robocop was appearing and said that some guy spent $x to make a replica robocop costume and also said that tom welling or whoever didnt care for it

When I was a wee lad (senior in high school) I went to "costume day" as Nightcrawler in Southeast Texas..(eryup..you can imagine how that went down) spandex and everything. Got in a huge fight with a red neck guy (STILL stunned that I won), but yeah pretty much gave up cosplay after that. shrug

It was at breakfast in the cafeteria and guy was calling me a homo and all sorts of stuff, which I didn't give a crap about, til he shoved me. I warned him once to not touch me again, whenhe did I jumped, straddled his abdoment and started hitting him in the eyes with my scrawny elbows in his eyes. Broke one his orbital ridges and got suspended, and kinda laughed at by the principal.

reminds me of a fight i got in 10th grade law-related 1 class. a kid whos a known bully started stuff, so i gave him the finger, he jumped at me, we both went at it. i got suspended and fined. i think he got a slap on the wrist. but that was the last time anybody in that school placed their mitts on me =)

Whish I could say it was MY last, but I was a skinny, artsy kid who liked comic books in a smmmmaaaaalll hick town in Southeast Texas, on the border of Louisiana. Luuuckily my uncle who was in Special Forces taught me to fight. I didn't always win God knows, but it served me well enough that I wasn't constantly picked on. Good for you btw...I'd never even heard of fines in the dinosaur ages when I was in school though.

this was in the mid 90s and my uncle [moms brother] was the district justice of the town and a neighboring community. it was my last fight in school but not the last time i was picked on
