Oh wow, I didn't realize I was such a big hit, much less that I was on DA! I'm the Issun cosplayer in question, and I'm beyond flattered (especially considering that this was my first attempt at cosplay), although Dante certainly takes the cake here; running into you guys was without a doubt the highlight of the entire con.

P.S. For the record, I am male.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know! Updated the description with a link.

That's a really impressive first cosplay, by the way.

This made my heart melt. ;w;
Your dog is simply beautiful, and your cosplay is very well made. I had always thought about dressing an actual dog up as Ammy, but thought that it would make the dog uncomfortable or unhappy. You can clearly see here, that is not the case. Hes so sweet and cute and happy!

Thank you. :) Yeah, we made sure he'd be okay with it. He's really sociable, so it was a good day for him.

Very cute! How did Dante handle walking around with his cosplay on all day?

We only took him out for 30-40 minutes at a time (on three occasions over Saturday-Sunday) to keep him from getting overheated/overwhelmed. He was fine for the first two, on the third outing (Sunday early afternoon), it was too hot out, so we turned back after only like ten minutes.

Your dog is SO good for able able to enjoy wearing that and have people approach him. You did a great job on Dante's costume and Dante himself is too cute! <3

A dog named Dante, Devil May Cry: Capcom. Dressed as Ammy, Okami: Capcom. Was this coincedence, or a plot?

Well, the dog *is* named after Dante of DMC, but the Okami cosplay had not occurred to us at the time. :)
