How I switched sides - Desucon 2013 cosplay plans change

There's now under a month left until Desucon (hype!! 8D) and the con carpool search seems to be slightly on the brighter side; I've found two people whom I could tag along with but I have yet to make sure 100% which one it will be because one of them informed me, about one week ago, that he might not be able to go to Desucon after all. Oh well, if he can't go there I do have that other person to check carpooling possibilities with. We'll see, I'll probably make a post when it's settled.

Oh well, the last few weeks or so I've been bouncing back and forth between changing my Desucon cosplay plans slightly and it seems I've got turned over to the "yes, I will change my plans" side now. Worry not, it's just one cosplay that got changed! My current cosplay plan list is now as follows:


Series: Fruits Basket
Character: Kazuma Sohma (manga version)

Kazuma ain't going nowhere because I've already planned a pair cosplay with Ri-kun as Kyo and I'm looking forward to it quite a bunch haha. Besides he's pretty much finished.. err, except for that random not-very-traditional haori tie... I might add it though.


Series: Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan
Character: Hajime Saitou

 This is where my plans changed. I originally planned to go as Kenshin (OVA, Battousai version) but.. plans changed. Basically, I switched from being a big enemy of the shinsengumi to, well, being a shinsengumi. xD Also, fun fact: one of Kenshin's toughest enemies and coolest is Saitou. Then again, Rurouni Kenshin's Saitou is that much more BAMF than Hakuouki's taciturn bishie Saitou. xD I hope I run into that Kenshin cosplayer I heard will be there, crossover photos herpderp ~
I also realized that by cosplaying Saitou I would get somewhat less stuff to take with me -which is good because heavy luggage is not so gusta and both carpool possibilities aren't space wonder cars- and that's because several parts of the cosplay would be used for my other Desucon cosplays as well - namely the wig, shoes and juban as well as some smaller stuff. Also I've been longing to get a chance to wear Saitou again ever since I bought a new black authentic kimono that fits me better. And besides I've been sort of obsessed with playing Hakuouki Musouroku (aka Warriors of the Shinsengumi) lately...


Series: Brave 10
Character: Rokuro Unno

kimono!Rokuro as seen in Brave 10 anime's last episodes stays on the list as a rather chill Sunday cosplay.

Nothing else to say, see ya at Desucon!

I'm so excited for our Fruits Basket cosplays too~

It's always useful when you can use the same parts for multiple cosplays.

Also good that the car pool chances seem good. ^_^

Oh, Saitou time, huh? Hope you get the carpool ride to work out soon!

Arawn Elidd said...

Hope your carpool situation works out. ^^ OMG yessss, more Saitou! <3 Funny thing is, I will be cosplaying him for my next con too, which happens to be the weekend right after your con. XD Dude, you definitely gotta get crossover photos with the Kenshin cosplayer ~

Hey, speaking of playing video games, have you tried Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes yet? :3

Valkoinen Samurai said...

Crossover photos would be so much fun indeed!

Actually, I own it. xD It's awesome!

Arawn Elidd said...

Awesome! *should have known before asking* XDD I've been dying to pick up a copy of it too ~ =D

Hi, the Kenshin cosplayer here! : DDDDD oh yesss, we shall definitely take some badass crossover photos. Too bad you won't go as Kenshin as well but damn, this is very convenient : D I hope to bump into more shinsengumi, a group fight would be epic

Valkoinen Samurai said...
