Dream cosplays you've always wanted to do but haven't due to time, money, obscurity!

Pictured Goemon, a silent game icon gem that died out in the states!

My dream cosplay would be a JoJo character with a mannequin of their stand strapped to my back.

I'm not at that level yet, though.

Ah, I didn't finish the message.

The other one is Lemeza from La Mulana (in that pic), but I know people would just say it's Indiana Jones and I would get upset.
>>
>>9996467
Holy shit, its Goemon.

I'd be ridiculously hype to see this at a con. I think the only thing is that the hair is the most recognizable feature, which would be hard to get right.

my dream cosplay might be making some sort of gundam cosplay but I'm in no particular position to tackle such a huge project at this time along with being backlogged with other cosplays

Seriously just make it even if it's obscure. Someone will recognize it, particularly if you wear it at a big con. Even if nobody does, at least you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you made a cosplay from something that you love.

It's possible to pull Bayo off even with average leg length! I've even seen cosplayers with short legs be able to pull her off by wearing really high heels to give the illusion of legs for days.

I've wanted to do Stella but haven't because body paint is hell and I wouldn't be comfy walking around a con in her crotch cutout dress. I've thought of doing her award show outfit (or maybe compromising and doing the white version from the Shep dream scene) but I don't think I'd be recognized and it does kind of suck when people have no idea what you're doing.

Hana from Collar x Malice. I haven't done it yet because it looks like a daunting amount of work, but I actually started looking at fabric yesterday!

Any kind of mecha. I'm newer to cosplay and only good at making masks so far, but I'd love to do a Megazord, Zoid, or a Medabot.

I need to sit down and actually watch the show/read the manga but the Sugar Sugar Rune witch designs I love and want to cosplay one day. It's a really great blend of retro and mid 2000's but really simple. Making giant witch hats looks like alot of fun.

My hips and thighs are wayyy too wide to cosplay my dream, Raziel, in either his vampire or ethereal form.

I have a lot that I would love to do, but I think the ones at the top of the list are mostly Monster Hunter.

There's literally nothing wrong with doing obscure cosplays. If you wear it to a bigger con there's pretty much guaranteed to be one or two people who will recognize it.
>>
>>9999647
Not that anon, but I don't think anyone here thinks it's wrong to do an obscure cosplay, they just don't want to do one personally. Myself, I just put into too much effort and time in making cosplays to only have a couple of folks recognize it. Call me an attention slut if you will, but I'd rather go with something more people now.
>>
>>9999647
To clarify, I don’t think there’s anything “wrong with” doing obscure cosplays. Obscure cosplays are almost all I do (and the only cons I go to are SDCC, Fanime, and AX, so I think I know about large cons but thanks for assuming!) For these costumes, it’s just not worth it to put in the effort it would take when I could be having fun cosplaying relevant stuff that people will recognize and geek out with me about.

>>9999419

The main reason I’ve rejected this one is I’ve never been able to find anyone to cosplay WITH and I don’t think she’s recognizable enough on her own. If I had a Phoenix, I’d be all over it.

With all my heart I want to do her, but every time I buy the fabric I back down because of the armor.

Also want to do Shantae, Aisha Klan Klan, and Mimi from Digimon. But I'm phasing out cons and don't have time to do as many cosplays, and already have my summer ones planed for next june.
Like Mimi is possible as a lazy day costume, others not so much
>>
The outfit seems easy enough but her hair is some Rose Quartz level difficulty. I have no clue how to make roses at the ends of hair, and would be scared to death of making the wig look all crusty.

Her peg legs are actually the hardest part of the outfit, I found..

I'd love to cosplay Warp (pic related), but topless + giant hole in the chest is not an easy or cheap practical effect to pull off cleanly. If I can figure out a consistent, effective, and fairly cost efficient way of doing the effect, then I'd probably move forward with the outfit

This. I see it less as a "please fawn over me" and more of a "please acknowledge the love, effort, dedication, and craftsmanship that went into this". It's hard enough to get that as it is with popular cosplays. And before someone screams "enter a competition then", I, and most people who feel this same sentiment, aren't at that level yet. There's something to appreciate in all levels of craftsmanship - even beginner's.

FFTA white mage Viera. FFTA was one of my absolute favorite games as a kid, I replayed it so so many times and would have fun with Viera runs. I doubt I'll ever end up doing it though because of the outfit and how picky I am with details, being pale af when viera don't look right super pale, and I feel like I've never seen Viera ears look good - they always look absolutely awful and costumey.

In an ideal world, I would make a Chamber costume.

But that is a fuckton of work for a costume that is going to take up so much space when I'm not wearing it (seriously, how do you even store something like that?) and for a robot from a 5 year old anime that was never especially popular.

And even if I did decide to do it, I probably wouldn't get it right.

I make big foam sets of armor, and the key is to make the pieces break down enough to be able to be piled into something like pic related, probably two of them for something like Chamber. Just toss a couple of dryer sheets in the bottom to keep anything from getting funky smelling and carefully put the stuff in so nothing is bent and going to get warped and there you go. I like the wheeled ones because they're also handy for the actual transporting to cons.
>>
>>10022058

Followup question then, I guess: how DO people transport big bulky costumes to cons?

I have a set of knight armor that I took to a con just a few hours away, and it took three big cardboard boxes to transport. Most of the time I go to local cons so I can just uber there and wear most of my costume for the ride, but how the hell do people take big costumes long distances, like to conventions that require a plane ride?

I have trouble imagining people putting their delicate, handmade costume pieces in checked luggage.

Always wanted to do Yae but the neon green wig is hard to make look good with anything.

Absolutely everything about this is completely out of my skill range and price range. The jacket really doesn't work as canvas, it needs to be leather or faux leather at least, the wig would be a lace front gravity defying beast. I have SOME of the skills for translucent glowing props, but I'd have to use a makerspace and the machine time adds up in price quickly.

It's still my eternal pipe dream, though.

You know, this could be done fairly reasonably with either appliqué (just attaching the colours shapes with white satin-stitching) or fabric paint if you want it to be authentic. Kimonos are pretty straight-forward to make, it's mostly just squares.

Helmet is fairly easy, there are pepakura files so print, cut, glue, fiberglass, paint, add the visor.

As for prop weapons, again, most can be done off pepakura files.

Now the body suit however, if you aren't good at sowing, that would definitely be something you would want to hire out (or work twords)
