Description
This will be for Fushicon 2013 as we have some secret squirrel plans that makes this cosplay very relevant. But I can't spill yet but much excitement. Will tell you as soon as the big boss has allowed an official statement but exciting :D

Squall_Wolfheart will be cosplaying Shinichi for me so that's going to be awesome.

Background to why I want to cosplay this character:
So some of you may not be familiar with my obsession with Detective Conan. It is a massive series running since 1996 based on the manga that started being written in 1994 and is still going.

Kudo Shinichi is the main male character in the series and a high school detective. After spending a day with Mouri Ran at tropical land (a theme park which features in the series) he sees some men in black doing some dogey dealings. Since he is such a detective freak he follows them to try and stop it, but one of them sneaks up on him and drugs him. They think he is dead but infact the drug has shrunk him to have a body of a child. He gets confronted by Ran (as a child) and makes up his alias "Conan Edogawa" based on the books that were near him at the time. He goes to live with Ran as her father is a detective and he hopes he can find out details on the black organization whom drug him.

Though Ran's father Mouri Kogoro, is a bit useless as a detective so Conan (Shinichi)often tranqualizes him and uses a voice changing bow tie to solve the cases for him and thus the sleeping Kogoro figure becomes famous.

The reason why I want to cosplay Ran is because her and Shinichi are my favourite anime couple ever. There journey is so sad and heartbreaking that I cry everytime they get together or when Ran is moaning that Shinichi is never there (even though he is, but she doesn't know he is Conan.) There are multiple times in the series where they are able to reverse the drug temporarily and these are the best/saddest episodes in the series and I think I'm addicted just to watch when one of these appears.

Though I'm only on episode 420 the series is still going strong for me so I highly recommend it to anyone whom loves detective series. Or if you don't want to go to the effort of watching a 600+ anime series the movies are also pretty awesome and tell you exactly what you need to know :D

This is just a brief overview of the series as it is huge and there are a lot more characters that I havn't mentioned but definatly need more love for this series.
