I don't think a date has been specifically confirmed, But Dynasty warriors costumes are good ones for expo since Koei has a presence their!

Supermanly FTW!

I think I'll be joining you in KOEI cosplays for May 09 but I'm unsure if it'll be DW6 or Warriors Orochi 2 ^_^'

Excellent choice I can't wait to see. I'll be joining the DW love by becoming Zhou Yu. So I would love to join you when you cosplay as Diao Chan.

I am looking forward to seeing this costume as everything you do is so beautiful.
Shame I won't be doing my DW6 costume until Oct next year...but I fear Lu Bu won't be done by May and I don't want to rush him ^^

i didn't even recognize this is a cosplay costume at first sight UNTIL i saw the second picture carefully. Your costume is amazing. And your figure is just right to the character. You are also good at imitating the character's guesters. You are great!
