Selected Sakura Con photos  
I'll be the first to admit that I don't rush to fansview anymore when a convention is over. New photos are exciting, and Mr. Lilliard does a fantastic job documenting them and getting them up on the site quickly. I just haven't been as enthusiastic about costuming as I was last year. It seems that since that gigantic outpouring of creative energy that became Millenia, I just hadn't seemed that excited about tackling projects. However... It's been about a full year, and I feel rejuvinated. Nation-wide, costuming is still a rising trend, and as predicted, the costumes have been getting better and better. I'm so happy to see more and more people caring about what they make and putting effort into making their costumes look the best they can.
So.. I will happily squee over my favorites :D
I love Full Metal Alchemist <3
Hey!! Ragnarok! :D
Very nice color choices. Sakura cosplayers make me happy, because they always seem to do great jobs :)
Ohhh.. I never see any Anji Mito cosplayers. <3 Brownie points!
OMG KT! Another Faris! (admittedly, if it wasn't for your attention to detail, I probably wouldn't have recognized this cosplayer's work immediately, despite having played through MOST of FF5. XD
Dude... Pincer??
holy crap!! Nice job!
I have NEVER, EVER, EVER seen an FF6 Gau costumer before. In my game, I named him "Moo". Way to go, Moo! :D
My obscure happy cosplay award goes out to you Moo, wherever you are
on this page, there is a very large FMA group!
T..T I can't say anything more because of spoilers
All in all, this FF6 group just really wow'ed me. I've never seen a Terra Esper form costume, either
Nice job!! Those FFX costumes are hard to tackle. Especially some of the stranger NPC clothes
There's that Katie Bair "Jessie" wig in action!

Um.. that's it. I can't beleive that all the J-rock costumes I recognized in those photos were either Dir en Grey or Mana. (There was a two-person MM Beast of Blood group, so technically it was Dir en Grey, Mana, and I think that was a Klaha) Also.. a pleasantly suprising ammount of Guilty Gear costumers!

Though.. the FF6 group really only made me think of evil things to do with my little brother. I mean.. he's tall, skinny, and easy to co-erce into costuming. After I finish his FMA costume, I might skip a few of my costumes and make him somthing really ambitious, like Setzer from FF6.(Though.. he might make a better Edgar, now that I think of it....Not that anyone would recognize him anyway XD )

Granted last Sakura con was lack luster. Really poorly run. But the cosplayers are getting better. :3

Well, I haven't heard anything spectacular about this one either.. but I'm enjoying the costumes :P

Ironically enough, that same Faris was at AWA last year. Imagine my surprise at pulling out a character that I'd never before seen cosplayed (at least, not the non-sprite form) and running into someone else in the same costume! It was utterly bizarre.

There were some really fun FF6 people at that same AWA, including an awesome Esper Terra. She spent a good deal of the time crawling on the floor and looking creepy. It ROCKED.

Wow! I'll have to poke around and see if I can't find more photos of the group. Their regular Terra looks like she's done a beautiful job on her makeup, too.

But you know....

This really just makes me want to do a Setzer costume, despite having no one to wear it XD

Haha, yeah, I think that's Pincer. He went to the con. Originally heim, Alexa, and I were gonna fly up there and stay with his parents, but things didn't go right.

They have better stage pics than A-Kon did last year.

Wonderful pictures! It always amazes me the amount of detail put into the costumes!

I'm glad you liked my costume. I was the Faris hanging out with all of the folks from Naruto. My accessories took for ever to make because I made them by hand with a neddle and one spool of black thread. Thank you so much for liking my costume engough to place it on this site! ^-^

Re: Faris!
Well, it's just my personal journal.. but when I see costumes that really impress me, I like to post them for my freinds that read, especially since many of my freinds are cosplayers :)

Re: Mooo....
I didn't actually go to Acen.. lol
I was just checking out the photos on fansview.
If you wore Anji with a big S on your chest, though, I'd crack up :D

What cons do you normally hit?

Re: Mooo....
Ack, sorry. Acen is in Illinois. I just recently poked around fansview and saw photos from there. I wasn't thinking Sakuracon, which is obviously where I saw your costume XD
That's cool, though. I'm down south, so I hit most of the Texas conventions- Animefest, Ushicon, A-kon, and next year, Kamikazecon

Re: Mooo....
It's nice :) I live in the middle of Texas... so most of the cons I go to are an hour and a half drive in any direction.
If there wern't any conventions in Texas, I'd probably fly out to one a year, if that. XP Those larger cons get expensive when you look at hotel& airfare, etc.
Since I go to so many Tx ones, though, that pretty much eats up a lot of hotel money, so I don't go out of state.
