Doing a quick search on deviantART, it seems there's no cosplay pics from PAX East up yet. I didn't take any myself, unfortunately, but there were others who did, and I'd like to make a Favourites collection of the cosplayers I saw. ETA: I have since made that collection, which is here.
This list is mostly for my own reference, as I search out pics over the next few days, but if you spot any yourselves (or are the photographer/cosplayer), please post a reply or send me a note with the link. Thanks!
ETA: Strikethroughs are for cosplayers I don't need any more pics of. Listings with asterisks are cosplayers that I would like additional and/or better quality pics of.
High Priority (in no particular order)
- Bayonetta (x2)*
- Ash and Misty (w/stuffed Topegi)*
- Professor Layton
- Harley Quinn(?) (the one who the Wait In Line typist called Lady Gaga)*
- The armor-wearing Enforcer*
- The Princess Peach crossplayer
- The big guy in the space marine armor (Gears of War?)
- Crono and Lucca
- The big brown Muppet in the burlap shirt
- FFV-style Time Mage, and the other Final Fantasy characters he was with
- A couple of Rapture (BioShock) residents
Also Looking For (again, in no particular order)
- Ash and Pikachu
- Various Pokemon (Bulbasaur, Sandshrew, Pikachu again, etc.)
- The couple of Bowsers I saw around*
- The other Lucca
- Various Team Fortress 2 cosplayers
I'm sure there are others I'm not remembering at the moment, and some others I didn't see at all (apparently there was a third Bayonetta). As such, will be amending this list later.
The problem with fanart
I was browsing doujinshi at Suruga-ya this evening, when this one caught my eye-- not just because Reno was on the cover, but also because it reminded me, almost immediately, of this deviation. The resemblance was too close for comfort, and I've since removed the latter from my Favourites, where it had been for years. And no, I didn't report it, since you know as well as I do that dA doesn't care about this sort of copying/tracing/plagiarism. It's so hard to tell sometimes what's copied and what isn't; it's somewhat frustrating. Stuff like this is why I'm wary of faving fanart by people I don't know, at least as acquaintances. It's also one
It's active again! And has been redesigned! Also created a Tumblr account for myself, but probably won't use it very often. New fanart went up earlier today, as you may have noticed. That's all for now.
I'm not active here anymore
I do pop by every so often, but that's still a rare occurrence these days. If you want to keep up with what I'm doing, here's how: - Twitters: Self-explanatory. - MyFigureCollection.net (aka Tsuki-board): A Japanese figure/goods/media collecting community; been a member longer than most. I write blog entries there on occasion, run group orders, and much more. This is my main online hangout nowadays. - Cheap Ass Gamer: Another place I've been active at for years. I maintain the Video Game Soundtrack Deals Thread, have been organizing the community's PAX Prime meetups since 2011, etc. My usual hangout there is whatever the current RPG Threa
Thanks, deviantART! Now the only place left where I need to be Kasahara'd is CAG. Changed the look of my account while I was at it. Oh, and uploaded some wacky Halo fanart if you haven't seen it already. How is everyone? Sorry I haven't been here too often ^^;
