Who would you be if you were to be a Cosplay character?

Asked by RayaHope (6805points) 1 month ago

Any genre. Video games, super heroes, anime, cartoons, whatever.
There are so many it would be hard to pick but Super girl, Tifa Lockhart, Tinker Bell, and of course Ensign D’Vana Tendi.

I think it’d have to be a Bill Murray role. I’m thinking either Steve Zissou or Peter Venkman.

Ghost Busters, nice! :)

An XV88 Broadside Battlesuit.

That would be so cool. I love those larger than life costumes towering over the people.

I gotta be honest…What exactly is a cosplay person? I know they dress up and have something to do with beings that don’t exist.

Mr. Fantastic or Dr Doom.

@smudges It’s like Halloween for adults (or kids) any day of the year.

Ezri Dax, I have long identified with her.

@smudges There’s a million videos but here is just one to give you an idea.

Why not 7 of 9, in her original Borg armour?

RayaHope's avatar

Sure, or the Borg Queen herself.

Daredevil
My favorite comics character. Sadly, I probably resemble his law partner, Foggy Nelson, more so.

One of my all-time favourite characters has always been Silver Surfer. But can’t say I’ve ever felt inclined to shave my head and wear a head-toe silver bodysuit.

My niece was telling me about this amazing Halloween costume that she saw though. This guy was dressed as God and made his hoverboard look like a cloud. But the best accessory was that he had dressed up his toddler as the devil.

Does God count as cosplay? Because it’d be a hoot to dress up my kid as the devil.

Ooh…any shape-shifting character in mid shift would be really fun to do.

That’s awesome!

Thanks @gorillapaws & @RayaHope. I guess I’m not impressed enough by anyone to want to dress up as them. As for the costumes, 98% of the women in that video just wanted to show off their stuff, and it looks like big ta-tas are a requirement for cosplay. I know, I’m a party pooper! LOL

RocketGuy's avatar

Female video game characters have big ta-tas, so the cosplay women are trying to be accurate.

@smudges That is my one pet peeve about it is everything is so “sexualized” unfortunately we live in a mans world and we can’t get around that. I try to look past that stuff so I focus on the material and how close to the real character their costume resembles the original.
