What's your dream obscure cosplay? I personally would like to do something from Phantasy Star IV, probably Rune/Thray.Oldschool cosplay dreams especially appreciated here.
>>10091439I have quite a few, mostly it's stuff that isn't well known outside of France
>>10091439Idk if this is obscure but I don't know anyone else who likes Pyre. I'd like to cosplay Jodi someday. I'm not buff enough though, I'd have to do like a whole body transformation first
>>10091466Dude, YES. I'm doing Pamitha this year hopefully (unless I go with Megaera from their new one, Hades, instead), you totally should do Jodi!
>>10091439If I can work up the courage, I'd probably pull off a fat Rika... if I still think I'm a gross slob, I could probably pull off a tall-ish Demi?
A lot of my dream cosplays are things with extra arms or legs. There's just really no way to make them look right, in most cases.
>>10091462>moonlight cookie and sea fairy cookieplease follow your dreams anonalso can i ask for a source on the 2nd from the left on the bottom row?
>>10092058Thanks, I have a bunch of ideas for how to do Sea Fairy Cookie but it will require a lot of experimentation, we'll see :) and the picture you're asking about is from a graphic novel called Elinor Jones, I don't know if it's been translated into English but it's a 3 volume series centered around a Victorian couture house so it's chock full of gorgeous dress designs, this one is the cover of book 3
No way in hell I could ever make the cosplay.
>>10092085Could potentially do the chess boxing one.
Argilla from Digital Devil Saga is one of many PS2 era games on my cosplay list. Styling that wig as a baby cosplayer would have been hell, so maybe it's good I haven't made it yet. lol>>10091466>>10091852omg please anons make these cosplays and share photos T_T My friend recently introduced me to Pyre and I love it so much. I've since added Tariq to my growing list.
>>10091439Ukyo Kuonji is best underrated Ranma waifu and I will cosplay her sooner or later
>>10092086Enki Bilal, good taste>>10092220I think you'll be fine, loose strands are easier to pull off than perfectly clean shapes>>10092239YES DO IT
>>10091439I've luckily cosplayed a few of my "obscure" dream cosplays and i'm hopefully about to do another one, a PSO2 Costume was the first and fun and so was "Warp" from Kaiba. up next is the "madolche" archetype from Yugioh, I was finally able to get a group together for it
>>10091439How I yearn to assemble the original team of 4. Hey, with the updated release of PS on switch, we might see some interest happenin
>>10092220DDS is the best! I’ve actually had Seraph on my to do list for a while
Would love to do something that isn't a Fremen from Dune, but the series really is unknown out of the movie visually. Happily was able to do one of my dream "obscure" cosplay this year.
>>10091439Angel/Devil-dog from Gregory Horror Show. So many cute designs in this show/game.
>>10093528DDR isn't really obscure (maybe these days it is idk) but Robo-zukin.
>>10093532I think that'd be a hit at any convention. You absolutely should! She was my fave.
>>10093380Holy shit an Anima+ reference in 2019? I feel like I'm dreaming. Who would you want to cosplay as, anon?
>>10092086Biggest question is still the metal leg.
Legend of the galactic heroes but its a bit more relevant now.
I would love to work on gamma one day
I'm the Pamitha anon from above, and honestly there are tons of cosplays I'd love to do, but am hesitant based on obscurity. It's not that no one knows them, as some of these things are popular in their own communities, just not too common in my own.
anything on here
>>10093884what are those from? would totally make one
I’m not sure I want to go through any degree of bodypaint for a Sailor Moon monster of the week, but I love the hurdler’s (ridiculous) design. Maybe if I got a group together.
Not super obscure but also probably not going to be recognized by the majority of most congoers now. I've also never done a revealing cosplay, so I'd be really nervous about ever doing Kazumi, but I can dream.
There’s honestly a fuckton of old CLAMP shit I would cosplay but RG Veda seems to be the one thing that I can bring up to CLAMP fans and they don’t know about it. Classic Ashura has been on my list for years.
>>10093378please tell me your from canada so that we can get a group going haha>>10093864at least the designs are eye catching enough that people would stop you for photos! that bottom left one looks sick as hell
>>10093864who's the harpy chick bottom right?
>>10093892monster hunter gen
>>10093884I totally want to do the deviant Lagombi, Narga, and Rathalos designs! Mitsu is really cute too, but it's less armour-y to me. I hope you do one though!
>>10093903OH MY GOD. PLEAAAASE do Gunbuster! I'm the anon above who posted Diebuster, they're both such amazing and underrated series.
>>10093964Pamitha, from Pyre by Supergiant Games
>>10093900A SM monsters group would make my heart sing. For the body paint though, I think arm/leg sleeves would give a more even look.
My current fit goal for the year
>>10093466Whoever you are I hope you're still out there because I am 100% down to do Piter De Vries
>>10093791I've cosplayed Reinhard for years and actually always get so many excited responses, even though my cosplay's not the best. Go for it anon!
>>10093466you could do a sandworm
>>10093466>>10094906I cosplayed Stilgar once
>>10094925That's amazing! I got to meet the guy who did the Dune game music this year and it really made me want to do something from the franchise. And with all the hype for future movie it seems like good timing.
Marina of Mischief Makers, Rosalyn from Okage Shadow King, BanchoLilimon, 02 Mimi (pink hair version), Terajima Ryoko and Ouka from .hack series, the girl from Secret of Mana, Ayla from Chrono Trigger, Pocky from Pocky & Rocky.The majority of them wouldn't be recognized, and I hate wearing white so it ruins Rosalyn and Terajima Ryoko
>>10093528I recently got a copy of the board game and a bunch of the mini figs! I kinda have wanted to cosplay Lost doll. Just figured itd look to generic.
>>10093884Its a real shame no one does the more intricate sets and goes for Bone/Narga/Kirin Armor all off the bat.
>>10095353Chrono Trigger is a bit of a cult classic, I'm sure you'd be recognized
>>10091462>Tara Duncan cosplayWow, that was my dream when I was a teen. Spent my days on the forums, but the dumb drama that led to them being deleted left a sour taste in my mouth and I never finished the books.
>>10091439I've already cosplayed her once, but it would be fun to make a different outfit for Isabella from Paradise Kiss and cosplay her again.
Made a quick collage, most of it is probably not as obscure as some of the stuff posted here, but damn, I've never come across a cosplayer for any of them.I'm not losing hope though>cosplay Duran from Avalon Code, a costume that, as far as I knew, no one had ever done >meet a Duran and a Lauca at the conWhat were the odds
>>10095654I never used the forums, what happened?
>>10095665Well, keep in mind that all this literally happened 10 fucking years ago so my memory is a little hazy. The author switched publishers and announced that there'd be 12 volumes instead of 10. This was just after volume 7 I believe ? Now, honestly volume 7 was pretty bad for me. Recycled jokes, fucking Sylver the walking cliché, etc. Since Magister's identity was supposed to be revealed in the last volume, people got pretty pissed about having to wait 2 more volumes and started complaining in the forums. Enters L, the forum's admin. L had been a pretty devout follower of the author, but she was fed up. She changed her tune, shat on volume 7 and said that the series getting longer for barely any reason felt like the author was trying to milk it for money. Now keep in mind everyone involved including L was pretty much between the age of 12 to 16 or 17. Was her post rude ? Yes. Did it reflect the mindset of quite a percentage of the forum ? Yes. Did the author completely overreact ? Well...The author (a 45+ years old woman at the time, if my math checks out) went absolutely apeshit, laid into L who tried to apologize, posted a "woe is me" blog entry, and banned L. People got maaaaaaad (14-years-old me included, I must admit). The author had a pretty hands-off approach to the forum, and mainly kept to her blog. To see her swoop in at the first sign of criticism was a betrayal, especially since she'd carefully curated her "cool, hip author in touch with her young fans". So people rallied together and basically whipped a shitstorm. Fun fact : the blog posts before and after the one where she bitches about L all have over 2000 comments. The one about L though ? 10 comments. Did someone go on a deleting spree?In response, the author simply deleted the forum. Way to go. In the end, this left me sour enough that I never went past volume 7, and since apparently Magister's identity never got confirmed and the series went to shit, looks like I dodged a bullet
>>10095983I see, idk why it's so common for YA authors to go on power trips. Reminds me that I've had the last book for 4+ years and I still haven't read it, honestly I'm kinda scared to pick it back up now as an adult and realize it was actually not very good :s
I love threads like these!I'll probably make a collage later, but one I've been wanting to do the most is either Peco or Smile from Ping Pong.
>>10095664just about lost my mine seeing kiriko here. my bestie and i actually cosplayed him and black jack when we were like 17 haha i found old photos and thought it'd be fun to do a "glow up" now that our skills have improved
>>10095988As long as you carry around a ping pong paddle, people will recognize you. I ran into a great Smile and Peco at Youmacon.
>>10091462>>10095983>>10095986>tfw I preferred Sylver over Tara's half-elf cunt of a boyfriend's abusive ass>tfw I found book 7 to be the last good oneI guess I have shit taste? 8 was real bad though, turned me off from the whole series. It would still be cool to see a Tara cosplay though.The author's reaction reminds me of another YA writer who nuked his forum after intense criticism of his last book, though. I guess YA authors really are all cut from the same cloth.
>>10093903Do Dhaos man, I did Harold Berselius in the past and you'd be surprised at how many people recognize old Tales.
I've done some and have many more on my list. I also wanted to do Daemon from ReBoot for a long time but I realized I'd never be able to do her justice and the body paint required would kill me.
Nothing terribly obscure but stuff I don't know anyone would recognize at a con. Planning on doing Witch Princess pretty soon as a comfy cosplay.
>>10096986Nothing wrong with your taste, it's all a matter of preference. It's also been like 10 years since I read the books so maybe I'll change my mind if I open them again (I always disliked book 4, for example, while many people loved it). I found Sylver grating because he just kinda popped out of nowhere and hit so many clichés (to me), but at that point I was pretty much done with Robin too.And yeah, even after all that I'd still be pretty pumped to see a Tara cosplay at a con. Despite the drama, that series was an important part of my life growing up. >>10096951Black Jack was one of the first mangas I read and I absolutely loved Kiriko ! I was super happy when I learned that he was getting his own spin-off, so much that I've been buying the volumes even though I don't understand Japanese at all. I've always wanted to cosplay him and I like how they redesigned him. I like his classic look too, though !
Does anyone even remember Ragnarok?>Days go by I still think of you...
>>10097015>BirdyHard same, anon.
>>10097024Witch Princess is so cute! I was thinking of doing a protag farmer cosplay someday, but I didn't think anyone would get it.
>>10096986Yeah Robin turned out a real POS, I wasn't a big fan of Sylver though, he was too milquetoast for my taste I guess? Def team Cal all the way.>>10097024Who is the character in the top right? She's super cute!
Speaking of obscure french franchises, anyone remember Skyland?
>>10097099nayrt but that’s hathor, a demon from the shin megami tensei series. I’ve always wanted to cosplay her or another cute demon, so good taste first anon!
>>10092926Dude. I wanna see your pso2 cosplay
The generic hucaseal starter from PSO episode 1 & 2 on gc/dreamcast. This has been my dream cosplay for like 10 years I just haven't done it cause I dont think I'm skilled enough
>>10097137Get ready to be called Widowmaker a lot
>>10097024Love Persona 2 and SMT. Cosplayed as Tatsuya at a pretty big con right before P5 came out to a photoshoot with 100+ persona cosplayers. Nobody knew who I was, no other cosplayers lower than 4 (which was also weird to me) feels bad man. Want to bring him back at some point tho, love seeing more smt people as well.
>>10092220DO IT I'm finally working on Gale this year
>>10097042Mannnn I love Ragnarok. I'd love to cosplay a high priestess. They just came out with the mobile game ver, but I don't think it'll kick off much in the way of new cosplay though
Marina? But I can't make armor for shit so probably never happening.
>>10097081Aww, anon you should do it! Harvest Moon doesn't get enough love these days. I've only seen an HM cosplayer at a con once in 8 years.>>10097099She's Hathor, demon from SMT as other anon replied, It's a rendition of a Egyptian God lady but I won't pretend I know much about Egyptian mythology.>>10097134Thanks anon! And thanks for answering other anon first lol>>10097758Wow not even any P3 cosplayers? :'( the older games aren't as hip or cool anymore but I love them. Especially P2. Eikichi best boy.>pls be the Tatsuya to my Maya anon I would be so happy to see another P2 cosplayer
>>10097758>>10097965Speaking of obscure SMT cosplay, I wanted to be one of the old school protags after seeing people do SMT Hero and Aleph.Or fuck it, one of these days I should go as YVHV.
>>10097135We made the "Canary Ribbon" and "Twinkle Robin" costumes, we entered at AX's masquerade but didn't place (not surprising, it was a strong year and our costumes had some rough edges in a few places, plus nobody knew what the hell we were) but they're still favorites of mine.
>>10093864I really want to do vengess ava and pamitha too gull
>>10094710YESYES YES Planescape torment does not get enough love, anonI've done fall-from-grace and annah. really want to do deionarra or the lady of pain next
I've wantedt to do Sabriel for years and years but if i were to do it i want to make it with real material like leather and embroidery with no shortcuts and i don't think i have the skill or money now. i would probably have to commission the leather and that would be a whole lot of monry
>>10093800My man. Talk about some obscure cosplay. General Raam with full prosthetics. One day... One day.
>>10095353I would love to see someone cosplay as Primm! Secret of Mana is so good
Mine is Maplestory from the OG version. I know some people who played but no one interested in cosplaying it.
>>10093380oh anon, I have been wanting to do Nana for the longest time
>>10098504I'm surprised Nana hasn't been more popular with the Lolita community. She'd be great for any lolita trying to get into cosplay.
>>10091466I still need to beat Pyre, but I would love to see anyone cosplay a Supergiant character.
>>10097024How do you plan on doing Demi-Fiend?
Why yes, I do have a thing for nameless characters and indie games. How ever did you notice?
>>10101738You should totally do The Kid! So much Supergiant hype in this thread, I love it.
>>10098480Really want to cosplay the generic maplestory girl with the starter equipment and a speech bubble headband begging for mesos.
Idol Mahou Shoujo ChiruChiru Michiru! I've cosplayed other versions of Michiru and I adore her as a character, but my skill level isn't high enough to make this costume and don't have the money right now to commission it.
>>10097142FUCK I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT UNTIL NOW. NOOOOOOOOOOO
>>10098112This is amazing I'm so glad you did this
>>10101738Is this a D&D party?
>>10092239Is Ranma really obscure? Ukyo was everyone's favourite Ranma girl back in the day.Am I just old?
>>10097137Oh damn, I remember PSO! The default HUcaseal was great.You should do it.
>>10091462Is the blue dress from Peau d'âne?It's my first time in /cgl/ and it's a pleasure to recognize such an amazing movie.Pic related is my dream cosplay, the Phantom of Paradise.
>>10102808Nope, everyone I knew who watched it preferred Shampoo. I used to watch it as a kid on the saturday morning mexican tv stations lol. Good stuff.Even now my bf prefers Nabiki, the fuck? x_x
>>10095664Nageki! You have great taste, Anon.
>>10102871It is! I grew up watching this movie, I actually don't live too far from the château they used as the prince's castle so I'm dreaming of having a photoshoot there
>>10103125Thanks ! I'm actually working on him right now, ordered some glow-in-the-dark thread for the constellation embroidery on the front
>>10103245Dear anon, don't let dreams be dream! Just do it! Also I am very curious to see the result. Definitely Jacques Demy need some love, such an amazing cinegraphist.
>>10103312It's on my to-do list, it's just a very long list ^^;
>>10102871This is also one of my dreams. Am also willing to do Beef.
Pic related. Someday I might at least try to make Gaspard's sword as a display piece, even if I never make the whole outfit. >>10095353>Marina, Ayla, RosalynAnon of fine taste.
I wouldn't even know where to start...Maybe with Apex Legends becoming a thing now though this would be more recognized?
sierra from legend of mana ... i did the heroine's costume and all of 2 people recognized me, but that poor thing definitely needs a complete revamp from top to bottom.
>>10104055Beef is so fun! What costume would you use?
>>10101738These are in no way shape or form obscure you dingdong.I've only played Bastion and I can recognize almost every character and where they are from.
Someday I'll do a Turin Turambar getup
I wanted to organize an EX Troopers group but my friends were stubborn and didn't want in unless it was localized.I get it but like, if I can watch walkthroughs so can you.
>>10104621The only acceptable one
>>10091439I think I could pull off Pisard from Futari wa Pretty Cure. Can't say I've ever cosplayed before but would like to try it someday
>>10104622Hoe often do you see them cosplayed? Also, you being able to recognize them doesn't mean the average con goer will. Just the ones really into indie games.
>>10097128YEAH YEAH! Wasn't this on Jetix or Nicktoons Network?!I remember commercials for this!When I saw the girl MC my brain INSTANTLY clicked!
>>10107131Dang, I didn't think anyone would remember! My mom bought the DVD set, I didn't watch it on TV but I do believe nickelodeon ran it. I was so sad they canceled it, I really wanted to know what would happen next, at this point I guess there's no chance they'll continue it even as a comic or something.
A full Killer 7 squad would be legendary
>>10093380+Anima has so many beautiful designs! I've always wanted to see a good Blanca.
Deciding who to do first, but I've hardly seen any vallyrie profile cosplays in the last 5 years
>>10093532ahhhhhhhhh do it!!
>>10097128I remember! I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of the name of the show, it came up in a conversation about old school cartoons. Can't wait to look it up and see how it ends thanks anon.
>>10118733Sadly I believe it was abandoned before ever reaching a conclusion and ended on a cliffhanger
>>10093938You should totally do it, I'd love to see more RG Veda cosplay. Don't mind what people who wouldn't even know Ashura would think!
>>10119661I love old CLAMP stuff, RG Veda is obscure for sure but not as much as Man of Many Faces or Clamp School Detective. Plus you can probably still get attention by virtue of just looking cool. Personally I want to cosplay from Angelic Layer or Magic Knight Rayearth at some point, they're both more well-known though.
>>10091439Sigma from Mega Man X 1.MBlackII from SaGa Frontier (there's like no reference photos of this anywhere)
>>10093532Dude I either wanna do pix, or emi from supernova!!
It's never going to happen, but it would be damn awesome to do.
>>10091439The King of England
I'd love to do a dark hawk
Fire Emblem isn't really obscure, but I'd love to do my favourite underappreciated party Onmyoji Everybody forgets he exists baka
>>10119690Rayearth is pretty well known and popular, but I feel like Angelic Layer is a bit more obscure. Either would be really cool, though. I love CLAMP's older stuff too- RG Veda is probably my favourite, closely followed by Clover.
>>10102808In english speaking communities- yes. It seems very popular still in Spanish speaking comms. I cosplayed two variations of Shampoo last year and was recognised by minimal people and those that did were at least pushing 30. I made Ranma's red outfit last year around Christmas too so haven't had chance to debut it at a con yet but I'm expecting more of a response to that though seen as Ranma and Uresai Yatsura appears to of had a small revival in the recent past.
Alastor for sure. Viewtiful Joe isn't that obscure, but there's only a handful of cosplays online from years ago. Maybe next year
>>10124509I feel that! I cosplayed Lum a couple of years ago and was recognized by the older crowd at cons; I would still love to get a Takahashi group photoshoot done for her earlier works
>>10094710this really updated my journal
I'd love to do either Comet or Kitty-N's alternate costumes from Bust A Groove 2. They'd both be relatively complicated though, one would require custom rollerblades and the other is technically form-fitting mech style armor. Also they're both, y'know, the hidden second costumes of an unpopular dancing game from 20 years ago, so.Devil-zukin from DDR, too. That'd be cool.
I will be a bastion of holiness in this weeb hell
>>10091439I've got a lot, mostly my childhood favourites. Probably will only do Anastasia but I love them all
>>10124816Anastasia and Labyrinth are not obscure at all but you should go for it! Also I love W.I.T.C.H, I kinda want to do Will or Cornelia at some point
>>10124816I have never seen such concentrated good taste in one picture, anon. I love you.
>>10093864>bottom rowThat's a lot of good taste. If you're in Japan or you can just do it really fucking well then Simone from Nier will be recogized by anyone who actually played N;A and would be a spectacular enough costume that you might draw attention from people who just appreciate the design even if they do not know who it is. Meg and Pamitha are probably only going to recognised if you have a Zagreus or a group of Exiles respectively. I love both their designs but Supergiant is pretty niche as fuck; only the Kid and Red will be recognised and even then not by many people.
>>10125461Thank you so much haha great minds think alike >>10124855True that they're not "obscure" but I agree they're fun. You should totally cosplay from W.I.T.C.H as well, such a classic
I'd love to do the Lords of Death from "Big Trouble in Little China" (at least, the middle dude with the shades). I've seen some Big Trouble cosplays before but usually just the main cast - they're probably WAY too niche to get recognized.
>>10098209Fall-from-Grace is best girl
>>10124793YES PLEASE DO IT
Moomin is pretty obscure in the US.
>>10093903>the senpai from GunbusterI know someone who was going around with a friend as her and Noriko, and of all things they ran into a random, lone Jung Freud to take photos with. Cosplay miracles and magic DO exist
>>10132637>Snufkin GOD YESYeah I wish Moomin fans were common here in the US. I’ve been wanting to cosplay Snufkin for forever. Same with the Joxter!
Tog here. My dream would be to do a shoot of someone cosplaying Shayla Shayla from El-Hazard
>>10102808there's more Shampoo and Lum cosplayers. i grew up watching ranma 1/2, i love it and still do. i need to go back and finish the manga for sure
>fire emblem>valkyrie profile>dhaos>bancholilimon>clamp>w.i.t.c.h.>bust a groove>the girl from knights in the nightmare>old school persona and SMT>legend of mana>the white chick from that one pmmm spinoff>fucking moominholy fuck, i didn't expect this thread to be this based. my faith in /cgl/ has been restored
Perle from Sailor Moon Super S
>>10132637I know someone making a Snufkin right now actually
>>10135121Some dedicated Moon fans would really appreciate your costume if you did. The fairy outfit is really cute! I think it'd be comfortable to wear at a con too. You should do it!
>>10132551>>10135185Agreed, Grace is best girl, always ended up joining Sensates when I played through. Here's my Grace self-post (I went back and upgraded the corset and a few other elements later on, no pics though)
>>10093864>Ava's DemonMy nigga
>>10137722Amazing work! Xaositects forever best faction ;)
>>10138532How is it great? It's not bad, but the wings are horrible.
>>10093380>>10093380Holy shit other people remember this too?? In 2019?? I'm so happy! Personally I want to cosplay as Senri, as he has always been my favorite.
>>10138555>>10138532the wings were something I did end up remaking, since those ones in the picture were only made in three days and were very heavy.
One day I'll cosplay a Ginga character, either as a fursuit or as a gijinka. I owe it to my 13 year old self.
>>10132637Moomin has been HUGE recently, at least in the circles I'm in. If I was you I'd do Snufkin soon before the hype dies down again.
>>10104557As if Apex zoomers would recognize it.
>>10091439I've always wanted to do this skeleton bro from an old ass yugioh card. Idk why, just seems like a neat and easy one to do.
>>10091439I would like to do an old school Phantasy Star cosplay one day as well but I'm still unsure of who, especially since I'm one of the few who liked the third game a lot and would want to cosplay that the most I feel. Same with the old Shining Force games, but we'll see.
I was planning on putting together a cosplay of Kaiman from Dorohedoro and debuting at AX but I don't know the first thing about cosplaying and I'm lazy.Most of it seems like I could buy, other than that torso piece and I don't know how I'd make it. Also the gas mask
>Bill Wilson CIA >Juedeau from Berserk
>>10132637>SnufkinYou chose a perfect time to do this since the new series was released! It's getting some momentum in some artist circles, so you'll be more likely to be recognized. I'm planning a Joxter soon!
>>10132637archaeology student hereon my last excavation, someone had a Moomin cup
>>10139920Big agree, I’m American and I’m planning to cosplay Snufkin too. >rise of the snufkin-kin
>>10138628Thanks for the tip!
>>10138628>>10139920>>10139991Guess I better get to work on my Snufkin cosplay then.
Magilou from Tales of Berseria
Susan Wainwright form the sims 3
>>10140467>not cosplaying from the sims 1Anon plsBut really what a fun idea! I may have to pick a member of the goth family from the sims 1 to cosplay, they were my favorite pre made family
>>10102808>Ukyo was everyone's favourite Ranma girl back in the day.>>10103046>Nope, everyone I knew who watched it preferred Shampoohmmmm....the majority of people I knew who watched/read Ranma 1/2 thought Akane was the best girl and absolutely hated Shampoo. It made like Shampoo more because she was the underdog.
>>10140397I'm not familiar with the source but it's a cool design!
Anis from Otoyomegatari. I just need to find Shirin for me and I would do her right away.
>>10101732I saw a red cosplayer at CRX
Sync from tales of the abyss. i remember wanting to do this character around the time the game came out but didnt have any experience in any sort of cosplay crafting.i could probably do it nowadays though.
>>10141269I'll be your ion / arietta anon
I've been getting really into Witch Hat Atelier/Tongari Boushi no Atelier lately, the designs are super cute! Leaning towards Coco in her basic uniform but she has some really pretty alternate outfits too
Cost dungeon magic
Hexadecimal from Reboot
>>10147346This is lovely, what is it from?
>>10145848Wow, thanks for the recommendation anon! it's such a beautiful manga!
>>10132637alien 9! I'd love to see that on a con
I really like the inventive designs of the Travis Strikes Again bosses, especially Electro Triple Star, but I reckon they're far too obscure. I've only seen two or three NMH cosplayers (and that's counting myself!).
This thread is super interesting!As for me...hmm...not sure if she counts as an obscure cosplay in the West, but I'm pretty sure here in the Philippines, no one has cosplayed Mami-chan so far. I really like this anime's aesthetic...
"Cocaine" Jimmy from Payday 2/Hardcore Henry. I think the character would be fun to get into and I like weathering/bloodying clothes, but I'm 100% sure nobody would get who I'm supposed to be.
>>10093532Nice, I've been dreaming of cosplaying devil-zukin from DDR 4th mix since I was a kid. Really want to cosplay some pop'n music characters too.
>>10093800Fuck yessssssss Zombie Powder is the shittttYou do Gamma and I'll do Smith
>>10097015I'm wirking on Birdy as we speak, anon!!
>>10132637Lolol come to Finland, there's at least 10 Snufkins in every con also the witch, Juxter and many Black countess cosplays too
>>10091439Machio when he wore pic related for this one chapter.
>>10124793based AND redpilled
>>10148941yeah i saw several creamy mamis about two years ago, seems like there was a small interest spike in nostalgia series. haven't seen it again tho
prolly not obscure at all, but i've been obsessing over wanting to cosplay Chihiro Fujisaki from the Original danganronopa´cept with some ww1 german stormtrooper gear(or ww2 idc) i think it'll be cool and me and my bf are building an old gear collection, hard thing is to find original equipment in my small size
Mamotte! Lollipop was one of my first manga, and I’d love to cosplay Sun and Forte with a friend or significant other.
>>10097042i wanted to get a group together for so looong, i have cosplayed high priest and scholar but its always been by myself...
>>10092239Literally technoranma is the only one I've seen do her Justice
Someone from Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga. Sera is awesome <3
>>10161680Also the Demi-Fiend from Nocturne, but he's not as obscure as DDS.
>>10132637i saw a ton of moomin cosplays at sakuracon this year. i don't think it's obscure anymore. among a certain crowd it's basically flavor of the month right now
For quite literally two decades, even before I knew that cosplay was a thing, I have wanted to cosplay only one character.The male main character from Legend of Mana.I tried, I honestly tried, to learn a bit about sewing. Life intervened and I ended up having to work 65 hour workweeks for two years shortly after I took up sewing and shot that down. I tried to find a professional who could make it for me, but every single person quoted me over 2.5 grand. I earn less than 30k a year takehome, I cannot afford it, period. Now I am 31, out of shape, and my hair on top has thinned out so badly I look like a pedophile if I grow it longer than an inch. I used to rock a six pack and have hair exactly like this character reaching down to my waist. Everything is darker in my life, and I feel like if I could just get back into shape, get a good wig, and do this one cosplay, it might, I dunno. Give me hope?
>>10162373Here is your best bet: Make what you can, get a wig, and commission what you cannot. This cosplay has a lot of armor, which is why it is so expensive to commission. Take your time and watch tutorials on armor making. There are a lot out there so you can learn to do it a lot of ways. Craft foam is the cheaper option and thermoplastics are more expensive. Both can look good if you do it well. My advice is to go the cheap route and then as you get better move into the more expensive stuff. If this is really the one cosplay you will ever want to do just do it. It might not be perfect at first, but you can go back and upgrade it as you get better.Just remember that Legend of Mana is a beloved series. It isn't that obscure in the scheme of things. Even if it is not a perfect cosplay people will be happy to see someone who likes something they like.
From the genderbend musical episode of that disney cartoon nobody watched. I've already got the buck teeth lol and I've always wanted to do a huge, poofy ballgown cosplay, but the cost of making/commissioning vs the fact that nobody would recognize me scares me away from attempting
>>10161680God, great taste anon. I’ve been wanting to do a cosplay from DDS too but I’ve been waffling on materials for a while.
>>10123807FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS, ANON. He’s one of my faves.
>>10097015>UtsuP PV cosplayOh man, didn’t expect to see that. There’s a few Vocaloid PVs I’ve considered cosplaying from, but I’m hesitant since nobody in the West will recognize it unless it’s Servant of Evil or some other old hyper-popular song. Hope you cosplay her one day though!
Someday. Maybe next year. Who knows.>>10097015>>10097080>>10154486>Nu-BirdyGo for OVA Birdy. Better hair and a cooler outfit.
>>10091439Definitely not obscure in Japan, but overseas, it's definitely obscure. At the bare minimum, I'd love to do a Kamen Rider Kuuga cosplay that's accurate to the stage show versions (visible clamps on the gold sides of the helmet, eye holes in the red compound eye lenses, the bottom of the armor is orange for some reason.)The dream would be to make one fully accurate to the stunt version suit, but figuring out exactly what the symbols look like is a nightmare, not to mention the helmet.
>>10091439Souma Ogami from Kannazuki no Miko.Being a male rival love interest in a yuri anime immediately makes him universally hated, but I always thought he was underrated and cool.My friend had planned to cosplay Tsubasa opposite me.
>>10162734the symbols on kuuga's collar are just the grongi symbols
a nearly perfect Lina Inverse cosplay
>>10124793If you don't catch leprosy for this cosplay, you're a massive poser.
>>10097137I wanna cosplay my HUnewearl with weapons and mag so bad, but I'm not built or skilled enough for her.
This is awesome
>>10161153Mamotte! Lollipop holds so many "entry to anime and manga" feelings for me. I hope that you get the chance to do it one day, anon.
>>10161123how does ww1 german stormtrooper gear fit with Chihiro?
>>10162732My dumbass didn't even know that Birdy had a different original look. I watched it years ago and I guess only watched the OVA lmao. I do like her OVA look too
Not that obscure by itself but I don't think it would be that recognisable without context. Plus con staff would probably take away the bat, so it's either random kid costume or random hobo costume I guess.
>>10091439ideally claire from tales of rebirth. its such a good game but really i can see why its not as popular considering an english patch doesnt even exist.jade from tales of the abyss is another one but he's notably less obscure and I never see anyone cosplay tales of the abyss anymore.xerxes break from pandora hearts would also be ideal
>>10161123This is cringy. Just cosplay a character that actually wears stuff like that.
>>10164128Those are actually the Gurongi's tattoos, but at least I managed to finally grab an image that shows off the collar. I'll probably have to get the actual figure on the right just to see it in better detail.
I know nobody will recognize this unless I carry around an Orel puppet. One day I'll make one
>>10105472Well to be recognized more easily. The more goth-y debut outfit would be cool but almost no one would get it.
>>10168970Good taste. Unless you're planning on attending a con in the winter, you'd boil alive in the latter costume too. Fingers crossed that you can pull a group together someday
>>10170382Thanks anon! That would be amazing. let's hope I'll find the right group someday!
>>10162571Little kids will still think you're a princess. Go for it!
>>10092239Just get a group.
Haken BrowningIt's so complicated and no one would ever recognize him but it would be so fun provided its not super hot that day or days
>>10104642That would be so great.
Honestly I have so many cosplays I've been wanting to do for years that I just havent had the chance to. If I had to pick my biggest one right now it would probably be Jeanne. I don't know if a group would ever be possible, but it would be incredible.
I'm working on a 3d printed Gundam helmet.
>>10174044Ahh this was my favorite Manga as a kid! Please do it !! <3
>>10102871Wait a second is that who I think it is.
>>10097015You had my erection at Birdy. Please do this.
Liete from GrandiaBut if the remaster for Nintendo Switch actually gets relesead, it won't be that obscure anymore (I gues).
>>10124816PUH-LEASE DO THE THUMBELINA MOTH DRESS
I'd love to do one of the heavy armor goons from EYE: Divine Cybermancy, but I've no idea where to start. I could 3D print, probably, but I'd have to hunt down a makerspace. I wonder if folks take commission...
>>10170353Get someone to be Clay
Kurt Hectic from MDK (but I'm female, whatever)Helledryn from Styx - Shards of DarknessFiriona Vie from EverQuest
I'm planning a Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea cosplay for hopefully in the next year or two
I really want to do Raziel from Soul Reaver. I don't know a single person IRL who knows about LoK other than me. Seems pretty obscure to me.
>>10185805is it really considered obscure though?(if yes, I'm planning Lobco and fem!Idate or fem!Wodahs)
>>10186155Yeah maybe not quite obscure, but definitely underrated for sure I think
>>10184991I the same!I've partially built the Culter Dei heavy armour, but I may need to scrap some of it. The engraving on the trim is what is really killing me, though.Having no experience with building helmets doesn't help either.Best of luck for yours, I am glad to hear somebody else is looking to create armour from E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy as well!
don't think I can cosplay any of the girls because I'm not a qt but I'd love to get a group together one day. or a poison jam member. Too bad the game seems so niche.saw a cute rapid 99 cosplayer at fanime this year though, so that was cool
>>10091439This autistic weirdo
Yugioh itself isn't obscure but anybody who cosplays a monster that isn't DMG related is pretty rare. I wish I could get a Yugioh charmers group together. I have the materials for Lyna but I had put it off to the side burner for years now. I also fantasize about a Madolche or Traptrix group as well.
>>10097015>daemon from Reboot>Queen Mio from Live action Sailor Moon.Yassssss
Buckets from Lisa the Painful was an idea I had back in 2016. I started with the helmet but couldn't figure out how to make it both accurate and functional.
I've always wanted to do a female version of stinkor from MOTU.
>>10185374Female Kurt Hectic works, especially if you’re doing the sniper mode helmet.
Snatcher would be cool, but the characters (especially Gillian) aren't distinctive enough and the game is already niche enough as it is. Maybe if I got a group together? but even then it'd be a stretch.
>>10138626i felt this and i agree
>>10186713godddd, I've wanted to do a rapid 99 cosplay for so long. the color scheme is so cute. either that, or Gum since I don't really have the right body for a rapid 99 gal...
there's a ton of 5Ds characters I'd want to do, but mostly Carly or Rally. Carly has a special place in my heart...
>>10124816are you me? i've wanted to cosplay a w.i.t.c.h. character for so long, probably Irma. I looove the old barbie movies and labyrinth too...
Akecheta from Westworld. Tons of talent and prep work. Need professional special effects crew for that.
>>10186660Why are you scrapping some of it? Not admonishing, just curious. I’d probably just go with a gold inlay, since most folks won’t be up close enough to read engravings.I’m shameless enough to com someone, because the bears on the Jian Heavy helm will be a nightmare.
>>10091439>all the Guyvers, Zoanoids and Zoalords>Kosh and Ulkesh from Babylon 5>Pretty much any character with organic armor
Mine is mostly nostalgia stuff that is way out of my skill set. It’s a blend of trying to figure out early 2000s OTT anime style, partial mech armor and really weird outfits lol.I also would just love to have a DoReMi group and just do random Shunya Yamashita art designs, his older ones were so cute.
>>10186014ME. The Legacy of Kain series was my shit back then.
My dream group cosplay is Dragonlance.I've already made my Raistlin costume and met Margaret Weis while wearing it so that was awesome.
>>10186014>>10192806Heck, even if no one recognizes it, the amount of detail and uniqueness of Raz will get people noticing.
>>10192457Who is the bottom left? it's a lovely design
This fucking thing. I wish I had the talent to build something like this but shitty KR helmets already give me enough trouble
>>10092220>>10093864>>10093903>>10097015>>10123125>>10161680>>10168970>>10184858>>10186713I'll always show support for people cosplaying obscure or forgotten titles or characters, or just rare designs of uncommon but maybe not "obscure" characters, but you Anons in particular have my full support.
>>10098433If you had the bells and whatnot it would be recognizable at a fantasy con. It’s a fairly well known book series.
>>10194189It’s just an art design/character sketch by Shunya Yamashita, he has hundreds of cute girls
depending on who you ask maybe not obscure but niche? Yeah. I hate showing stomach or cleavage though so if I’d ever cosplay kei or yuri I’d have to get over that
Hao from Shaman King
There's a few that I've been wanting to do. But honestly I also want groups for these. Even if it feels like it's a dream that'll never happen with most of them.
Yorimoi group cosplayRanpha from Galaxy Angel
>>10091439Thrice Radiant Misho
Ok, but has anyone ever cosplayed the 4chan mascot girl? You know, the green hair, blue shorts one?
>>10205136You mean Yotsuba? For sure, she was already fairly popular as a character before 4chan decided she'd make a good mascot
>>10091439Joseph Joestar, once I manage to lose another 10-15 pounds.
>>10206236Jojo is absolutely not obscure
>>10206250Neither is half this thread.In any case, very few people will recognize anything that isn't Stardust Crusaders or currently airing.
I know DOTA 2 isn't exactly obscure, but I feel like when it comes to cosplaying MOBA characters that aren't cute waifu bait, nobody really recognizes who you are. I don't really care though, I'm just determined to make a giant bug and I just really love Weaver.
>>10206333The Battle Tendency anime is only seven years old, and Joseph has been a reoccurring character in later parts, albeit in an older form. A protagonist from one of the most popular anime of all time doesn't just fade out of everyone's memory just because the specific portion of the show isn't airing anymore. I highly doubt that people aren't recognizing Joseph cosplayers, but I guarantee that they just won't approach them for a picture because of JoJo cosplay oversaturation or because he's just not as well liked as the other JoJos. A JoJo protagonist doesn't belong in this thread, anon.
>>10205136>>10205168She’s been on my cosplay to do list for a while. Definitely not obscure, even if people don’t know her name or source they’ll recognize her.
>>10206236Dude Joseph is EVERY Normie's JoJo cosplay.
>>10202145How on Earth are the Dirty P.... Ahem Lovely Angels either obscure or niche?>>101924572032 Superior to 2040.Fight me.
Honestly I have a whole list of obscure magical girls I'd love to make cosplays for, but these are all probably the top
>>10206946dirty pair is kind of an oldhead anime, pretty much no one talks about it nowadays unless the discussion is about old anime in particular. most younger anime fans I know have never heard of it or only know it from future funk (which is a shame because it’s such a fun show)
>>10206992Rule of Rose!! Nice!
She's out of my comfort zone at the moment, what with being so revealing at all, but I'd love to cosplay Ulala from Space Channel 5 someday!
I'd really like to do this one but I don't think anyone would recognize it. One year I was really getting ready to do it too, I already have the hat.
