My Madotsuki cosplay aesthetic, fresh made. The photos of my cosplay are from 2014, though.
I think it came out nice…

Welp, I finally got a few pics of my Madotsuki costume. They're not that great, and my hair got a bit messed halfway through.

I'm probably going to be wearing it to comic con new york.

I need more practice on good poses and braiding my hair. I have some good locations in mind for the future, including a creepy mall parking lot, some abandoned trains, a bunch of lampposts downtown, ect

I don't know whether the blood is really necessary… was it a part of the sprite? I can't remember.
I mean, sure, if you want to, include it, I just think it'd be better to leave it aside because it generally doesn't look well added as an edit, unless you used a genuine liquid IRL… and that's pretty complicated for a shot of this kind without doing some work arounds, I think.

it wouldnt really be complicated, i actually made a foam "table" to stick my head through so i could do the blood and the braids as if it was lying against the ground, but then when i went to add the blood i found out i had thrown my fake blood out OTL


ah it is part of the sprite when she moves (heres a quick gif i just made), but if it looks a bit tacky i might leave it out in future pics.

thank you for your critique though! it really helps!

I MIGHT be getting some money soon. If I do I'll at least be able to pay for the ticket there. And apparently at least one friend would be willing to help with that. Dunno about finding a place to stay though.
Hopefully it works out, I've never actually been to a bigger con than just a college anime club's thing.

Shiiiiiiiit..
I wanna go really badly and can at least cover half the train ticket there, but it's only a few weeks away now and I really doubt my parents would pay the rest of the way. And as for the ticket to the con itself, no clue.
I can plead with them to make it my birthday present but that's still a few months away so chances are iffy.

Hi. This is my first post on these boards. I am a huge fanatic of Yume Nikki, its universe, fan games and communities, mainly this one and the wikis.

After going through .Flow once again, I decided to cosplay as Sabitsuki because I'm having another instance of 'feeling a connection' to the characters and the game. Just like with Mado and Poniko, Sabitsuki is connecting with me in some way.

I would like some feedback from the community here on my cosplay. What you are seeing right now is the outfit (minus the pipe and shoes / boots) for the cosplay.

Does it look right enough for Sabitsuki? Any advice?

Even though the sprite suggests a tank-top, I decided to go with a turtle neck as depicted in most fan arts.
Note: Two hand warmers were added to the cosplay as a personal touch, I decided to take a shot at adding a set of accessory to it in order to make it a bit more unique and less common.

 No.1648

For my eyes it looks pretty good. I'm not a cosplayer though so I don't know if there's anything specific there that you may not have, but remember you're basing stuff off a 16x32 sprite, so I don't really see why people would be complaining about specific details anyway.

I love this! The wig looks very nice, the shirt is also nice (I did the turtle neck too its drawn most in the fan art) and the hand warmers are a nice touch! It looks super nice and I hope to see you wearing it. Welcome to the /cos/ board, I'm happy to start seeing more people post!

>The reason why she was the best though is she never stopped for pictures or to talk, she always kept walking no matter how you tried to get her attention, and always looked down.
Yeah, for me it seems that not many people understand that cosplaying involves getting into character, not just wearing the clothes.
It always puts me off when I see cosplayers posing in cliched ways and expecting it to be okay when it's completely off character

 No.1592

>>1591
yeah, the dissonance between character and cosplayer expectations can be frustrating in both directions.

When I wore Madotsuki at comiccon a few years back, I overheard a few guys walking away from me and complaining that I had my eyes open. Something along the lines of "The REAL Mado would have her eyes closed!"
I'm not sure if they meant in photos, which is reasonable, or that I had them open while I was walking around, which would be ridiculous.
I had forgotten that I probably should have eyes closed during photos, so after hearing that comment, I kept my eyes closed whenever someone asked for a photo for the rest of the day. And guess what? Literally everyone said "Oh, I'm sorry, your eyes were closed, let me take it again."

Another time was when I cosplayed Stocking Anarchy at the anime club's Halloween party. There was a costume contest where we were supposed to walk out like it was a runway. I thought it would be funny to instead just keep going until I reached the snack table at the back of the room and grab some cupcakes. The real Stocking wouldn't give a crap about posing, she would just want to grab some sweets!
yeah…nobody got it. The club president was shouting "No, little one, you're going the wrong way! You're supposed to walk over here!"


Sometimes staying in character can confuse people…

Sounds like they didn't really know who Mado is.

>yeah…nobody got it. The club president was shouting "No, little one, you're going the wrong way! You're supposed to walk over here!"

>Sometimes staying in character can confuse people…
More like they're fucking ignorant of how the character behaves, which reinforces what I said. People believe cosplaying is wearing clothes and posing, which it fucking isn't, so they skip all the personality traits because "OH LOOK I JUST GOT THE CLOTHES SO ITS OKAY TO POSE AS A SLUT EVEN IF THIS CHARACTER IS INTROVERT LOL". If I see a Rei doing a fucking duckface, I will want to hit her hard in the face, no matter how well done the clothes are. That isn't cosplaying, that's bullshit closer to modeling with certain clothes than anything at all.

Honestly, I enjoy the teigeki shows a fucking lot even when the characters aren't well represented by their 3D counterparts (Real actors are smaller/bigger than the 2D versions, for example) because they manage to convey their character's personalities perfectly.

not necessarily
in like a masquerade or contest yes but like, if you're just walking around the con it's kind of… awkward
the only people who have tried to speak to me IC have been… bad vibes
i'm absolutely down if it's the right kind of situation or if they just make in-character jokes (all the piss jokes as hana. aaaaall of them) but otherwise i'm there to see people and get wrecked and shamelessly dress like a tard for a few days

oh man good point, cosplayers acting in character for characters that are mean or obnoxious is really annoying. The whole WACKY DEADPOOL COSPLAYER thing at conventions got old so fast.
There was a slenderman at that comiccon (it was 2012 so that was a relevant thing back then) that maintained a really cool balance between acting and having fun. he moved really slow and stiff and never talked, but someone with a boombox started a spontaneous dance party. Slenderman was just kind of standing in the middle of it awkwardly (both funny and in character) during Gangnam style (AGAIN, it was 2012)
I went up to him and said COME ON, SLENDERMAN, YOU CAN DANCE! ITS EASY! and I danced next to him, and he just watched for a while, and then started doing the dance veeeerrrryyy sloooowwwlly. For the rest of the songs, he did awkward slow stiff versions of all of the dances. Minimal amount of movement. Tint tiny dance.
a little bit like this but slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvmIByrcwAQ
slow stiff awkward slenderman dancing to caramelldansen was very interesting to watch.
Like yeah, dancing is very far out of Slenderman's character. But he never spoke or made a sound, and he moved like the character. While still being silly and having fun!

this might have been him but I'm not sure, there was like 3 slendermen that year
