Suggestions wanted... Anime/cartoon fans please look. Sun, 06 February 2005 04:57 Go to next message
I have a fancy dress party to go to on the 19th Feb. It's a mate's 23rd.

The theme is "Anime"... So basically anything animated is acceptable. I don't watch much cartoons apart from the free-to-air ones like Southpark, Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy. I could basically pick any character but am looking to go as one that really suits my look and personality.

I would like to go as Bender but after the first 5 minutes the costume would be a real bitch to wear.
http://www.icbernareggio.it/ragazzi/futurama/images/bender-small4.jpg


The suggestions I am looking for are basically characters that I may not have thought of (possibly a little obscure) that somehow suit me either in looks or in personality, or both.

A bit about me...

Personality: I am always joking with people, rarely say anything without some kind of cynical slant or sarcastic tone. Scheming all the time. Sharp, whitty, often blunt. I act blatantly self promoting in a joking way most of the time.
I also have a kind side though, I keep it hidden often because its not as fun as my scheming/joking side. Very Happy I like my cars too, ie: Toyotas. Wink I like gadgets and making often useless stuff just for fun or to excercise my creative tendancies. (Don't bother with Inspector Gadget, I cbf wearing a trenchcoat all night if I go as him).

I relate to Cartman off Southpark, Stewie or the dog off Family Guy, or Bender off Futurama. Those are the kind of characters I like but am looking for more suggestions.


Look: Due to a muscle disease I am, really skinny, and physically weak, but also tall (6ft), wear glasses.

There are two ways you can look at the physical side, a tall skinny cartoon character or a big bulky muscluar character (ie: funny because it is completely the opposite to what I look like).

Please post little pics of your suggestions if you can.

i reckon bender would be cool. but as with all fancy dress parties, you have to make sure you arent going to be the only one whos going to dress up properly.

i walked into a pimps and hoes party with my suit, some bling, and a feather in the hat, and the only other dude that even resembled a pimp was just wearing a suit, and looked like he was going to a year 11 formal. Rolling Eyes

it was fucking gay because of the peasants who were too worried/lazy to dress up for fun. Mad

just some advice from my experiences...

Will

ps. - why the big font?

What's wrong with my big font? I can do whatever I like, I'm Rick James BITCH!

I dunno, something different. Embarassed


I am certain that there will be a good number of dressed up people... My mate's girlfriend has spent about $70 on material and is sewing up a Conan outfit for him. My other mate has a Spiderman suit with inbuilt muscles. Another friend is going as Elmer Fudd because he's got a shaved head and goes hunting all the time. He's got a really good fake shotgun as well. I know a few more as well. That's why mine needs to be good.

ok, if you are tall and skinny, that means you can dress as about 90% of all anime characters.

the costumes will possibly hard to come up with though.

here are a few. (google for images)

vash the stampede, from the trigun series

allucard, from hellsing series

if you want to know what you will look like if you put in too much effort, look up "cosplay" in google.

Confused None of these guys are distinctive enough to dress up as nor have I heard of them... and Mr DOHC my titties aren't up to scratch. I don't think I'll be going as your suggestion.

Thread title updated. Smile

I didn't realise how many different anime series there are. I don't have cable nor do I have many anime watching friends so I haven't heard of 90% of them let alone know about the characters. Sad

I have 2 characters in mind ..

They both are older kinda guys, but they are cool, especially amongst anime fans!

Both characters tho, dont really talk unless they have something significant to say or an intelligent comeback, or to point out a mistake... Although Kakashi compared to Auron, has more of a humourous side.

Kakashi from Naruto, (which is an awesome anime!)

His uniform would be alot easier and cheaper to get as opposed to Auron. All you'd need is a green fisherman's vest or utility vest from aussie disposals... blue pants, blue top, mash to cover your nose/mouth area and blue headband. If you could get your hair to do a crazy stand up and spray it white you'd be set!

Sure, a crazier anime fanatic would go hardcore into making the costume perfect .. but since you're just going to the party with the theme i'm sure you'd be reconizable.

http://www.absoluteanime.com/naruto/_kakashi.jpg

http://pierrot.jp/title/naruto/images/chara/kakashi.gif

or

Auron from final fantasy 10.

Uh .. get creative if you want this costume, but if you really wanna throw it together, get a black skivvy, red bath robe, black pants and round glasses...

http://www.icecavern.net/~qirien/final_fantasy/ffx/tidus-auron-yuna.jpg

Well ... good luck with it! Smile

Good suggestions... keep em coming.

Although going as "that crazy Bunta" would be appropriate in terms of character, I would seem lame just rocking up in a white shirt, black pants and a pack of ciggies.

Hi,

Just go naked, and piggy-back your girlfriend. If someone asks what you are just say "I'm a snail", then point to your g/f and say, "That's Me-Shell"

nyuk nyuk nyuk

I told that to my daughters the other night. One of them rolled her eyes and said I was a sad, sad man. The other one said "But, what if her name wasn't really Michelle?" I cracked up at that.

I think Lupin is a great character. Anyone who can drive up a cliff wall in a Fiat 500 gets my vote. And to boot he also drives a nice mini.

Yo sim,

I'd consider Kakashi from Naruto. The headbands are for sale on ebay (they're wickedly cool) and just make the rest urself. Black long sleeve with red swirl emblem, 3 quarter black pants, bandage and some sandles.

Green vests as far as they go is probably the hard part.

I once saw an anime cosplay exhibition at Uni and i wasn't sure if i was going to barf or die laughing... example is that fat guy in the optimus suit and i swear that makes me laugh every time i see it.

Does someone have it?
