And yeah, I would totally not have done all that if my two roomates had been at home, even though they know I cosplay. :oops:
Roomates? You in college?

No, I live on my own. Still trying to go to college in the first place. My parents are about 300 miles away from where I am now in Massachusetts. I dont think they'd mind me asking them to take cosplay pics though. They've done it before. XD

Holy crap! That was a wig. It was a damn good one though. Fooled the hell outta me.

So...do you only cosplay as #18 or are there others?

Haha

Well, I've done her Budokai costume and her Cell games costume as well. As for other characters, I did Sakura Kasugano from Street Fighter a longass time ago. I did Jack Sparrow from POTC, and right now I'm working on Schierke and Caska from Berserk.

I think I wanna do some other 18 costumes, too, but not sure which ones...

Hey, those are pretty freaking cool! If I didn't know any better, I'd think these were screenshots for a live action DBZ movie, I kid you not!

I want that Namekian Dragonball.

Those are really cute #18. You should have done a Hallowe'en themed one earlier too.^^

And have you thought of doing GT version #18?

Hmmm...Halloween themed would've been lame. I mean, it's already the cosplayer's favorite holiday and making a costume for a costume is a little intense. But hell, if I had thought of it, I probably would've done it. Striped tights and...a witch hat? I have no clue. ~_~ Maybe I'll do something for Valentine's day...

I've considered doing a GT version of #18. The problem for me is getting another wig and making her stuffy business woman clothing, and then hoping someone recognizes me . I like her short hair, sicne I have short hair myself, but I never liked the way they made #18 in GT.

I actually think my next costume is gonna be the super simple (well not really, if I have to make a denim vest from scratch) Kame house outfit that they show her wearing in Budokai 2 and 3. I did two of her other outfits and those are on my shrine. One needs to be redone pretty bad, but you can't reaaally tell looking at it in photos. :P

Ooh! Ooh! And I made it onto Funimation's website! (sorry for the shameless plug, but I'm excited)

No way!! If a guy wants to dress up as a sexy, thong-wearing militant badass, more power to him!

Thanks to your topic, number18, I have decided that when I go to Sakuracon next year, I will cosplay! And as Mirai no Trunks, post Spirit & Time Training. Thanks for the inspiration!

Awww! That's so good, The S! I've actually got a Dragonball cosplay site in the works, and hopefully it'll be up and running soon, so you'll have a place to find more inspiration. I'm gonna try to have other cosplayers contribute tutorials as well, so you can make the pointed saiyan boots, saiyan armor...all that good stuff. :D

Actually, there is a thread at cosplay.com in the anime section where we all post pics and talk about costumes and whatnot.

That's like..the 2nd to last page. The thread must be a year old by now, though. Haha. ^_^

Huhuhuh look at the filename for your image on Funimation.com...

You don't LOOK very fat, pale, or clownish.
