Your Top 5 Dream Costumes
Pretty much what the topic says. Right now, what are your top 5 dream costumes? This also includes if you want, money being no object and costumes you don't think you could ever physically make, but wish you could.

I guess since I started the topic, I'll start the ball rolling.

1. Lei Lei/Hsien-Ko (Darkstalkers) - one day, when I get over my fear of messing it up horribly.
2. Hiro (Spectral Soul) - So her dress is on fire half the time, no biggie right? Pyro-cosplay!
3. Gemini Sunrise (Sakura Taisen) - because I'm a huge Sakura Taisen fan and she's a bad-ass Yankee cowgirl who is also a musical actress and mecha pilot v_v;
4. Utada Hikaru (Singer - Passion PV) - My favourite jpop singer and a fabric shop's worth of material. I have kind of started on this one.
5. Momo (Breath of Fire IV) - I almost forgot her! She's a geeky professor who also happens to be a dog (in each BoF game you have a dog and a cat character) and carries around a huge amount of fire power. Again not touched it because I didn't want to cock it up.

That was harder to do than I thought X_x;

A dream costume is something that I don't think I'll ever achieve. So at some point I may decide to edit this list because I think I finally have the necessary experience to do the costume or I'm brave enough now to do it. So here comes a new list of Top 5 Dream Costumes!!

1. Kuja [Final Fantasy IX]
Kuja has always been my favourite villian, I don't know why but there's something about him that I love about him lol - maybe it's bishonen charms ahahaha. Sooo skimpy, and he calls himself a man! I don't have the confidence to do the costume, maybe if I ever get the body I shall make it. Finding the fabric though is going to be hard, how often do you find decent purple leather eh?

2. Finn Fish, artbook version [Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne]
Finn is so cute, I love her to pieces! Her outfit in the artbook is too awesome for words as well, especially that staff!! The bodice I am fine with making but the lower half, the slits are so revealing D'8 Although this is a costume that I might actually consider in the future...

3. Vivi Orunitia [Final Fantasy IX]
What can I say, the kid is just so freakin' cute! I could play the beginning of FFIX over and over simply because you get to control him and play skipping with him XDD Although I am not 3ft tall, I have plans on how to make him which involve a bit of experimenting, might do him in the future!

4. Washu [Tenchi Muyo!]
Obviously this little genious is one of the best characters in Tenchi hehe! I love her to pieces, that wig must be a pain in the backside to style though. Picking an outfit of hers is also difficult because she has many awesome outfits! Ahhh she is such a legend, I want to cosplay her so bad but the wiiiiig!!! [I want two mini Washus on my shoulders too, so cute!! <3]

5. Gundam Deathscythe [Gundam Wing]
I would love to do Deathscythe, Duo is my favourite pilot so naturally Deathscythe is one of my favourite Gundams! I could try and attempt this costume but knowing me since it is just so detailed I would simply get bored of making it!! Seriously I wouldn't have the attention to complete it...

I have many more dream costumes, it was hard to pick just 5. This might get updated again if I change my mind, but for now these will be my dream costumes ^_^ [My last one was Garnet and Hao which I've done, so there's a possibility that I'll actually do some of these dream costumes *___*]

Just 5? LOL Well, I'm planning on making one of my dream cosplays for October Expo, but I'll list it anyway LOL

1. Totoro from My Neighbour Totoro! He's big and round and fluffy! I've got the ideas, but not the time right now so I'll be doing him for Octobers MCM Expo!
2. Wing Zero from Gundam Wing. Giant Robots = WIN!
3. Illidan's newest form from World of Warcraft's new expansion. Look it up in my planned costumes if you've never seen it LOL
4. Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas! ^_^ After seeing Tak's, I know it's possible now LOL
5. No Face from Spirited Away. Not too difficult, except I want to do his Frog Form O_O

Oooh fun!

1. KOS-MOS from Xenosaga. She kicks ass with really big guns

2. Vanessa from Luminous Arc. Huge witch hat a scythe, very pink and a very silly costume. I love it.

3. Rose (Dragoon Form) from Legend of Dragoon. Crazy amounts of structural engineering.

4. Fran from FF12. I'd want it to look perfect and have to feel really confident about it.

5. Princess from Tsubasa. The one who looks after all the town children in legend. Dress of way too much fabric and lace.

These are all the ones I put off doing because I've built them up as my favs ^^

Basically, you need to do all four because I want to do costumes to go with all of them! :O

Do Fran for Amecon!
Yay for Luminous Arc!

The ones I really want to do at the minute are:

1. Mitsuki from Full Moon wo Sagashite (This or this version) - Annoying as she can be, she has pretty costumes *_* I'd have them all if I could
2. Zelda from Twilight Princess - Because Zelda is so very amazing and this dress is insanely pretty. Think of the beading that could be done...
3. Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere - She reminds me of an ostrich and that's why I love the costume! XD No, it's just an amazing design and I'd love to try the wings and headpiece.
4. Sakura from Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles - I'm trying not to say "because it's pretty"...Eh, I just saw this dress and fell in love with the design.
5. Astharoshe from Trinity Blood - Astharoshe is awesome, Trinity Blood is awesome...Y'know. But I don't think I quite have the skills to attempt this yet...

But as much as I want to do them the chances of any of them actually being done any time soon are quite low XD And I have so many others I want to do as well ^^; Ashe's wedding dress and Arche from Tales of Phantasia are next on that list. >_>

1. Vash from Trigun, that coat is just pure awesome! But oh the hair! O_o
2. Trainer Rikku FFx-2, I love this costume but i really don't think i could pull it off just yet.
3. Cloud Kingdom Hearts, I really love this Cloud outfit, it's just so awesome!
4. Tidus, FFX. I'd have no idea how to do this at the moment, but it might be one for the future thats for sure. I like his character [to a degree] and mainly because of his brotherhood sword! <33
5. Sephiroth either FFVII version or KH2 version, either way i love sephy and would love to cosplay as him, though i know i probably couldn't at the moment ^^;
[Okay we'll sneak one more in] 6. Jareth from the Labyrinth, his end outfit where he confronts Sarah once she's made it through the Labyrinth, he's just so awesome! >w<

Firstly - massive YES to Fran

Secondly, I still want to do Dragoon one day too...!

My dream costumes are:

1. Elena (Artwork version) - Grandia II. Stunning STUNNING costume...lots of painting, beading, detail work...and I adore Grandia II and Elena.

2. Elena (epilogue) - Grandia II. The cute outfit Elena wears at the end of the game...

3. Ashe (mourning gown) - Final Fantasy XII. Beautiful detailing on the dress! I really like this outfit of Ashe's! ^_^

4. Shana (Dragoon form) - Legend of Dragoon. Like Amy, I always wanted to do this, don't know when though! I have had this in my head since kat sent me a link to the images!

5. Klonoa - Klonoa 2. A big fur suit type costume. I have wanted to do this FOREVER.

I am actually making 3 of my dream costumes next year, the other two I have NO idea when I could fit them in!

(Psst, if we all comment on it, Amy-Lou actually *will* do Fran, power of the masses and all that )

1. Melfice, Grandia II - Currently in the making for a pairing with Mana. A dream costume I've wanted to do since I saw him in the game, and I'm hoping to pull him off well for Amecon. Go go giant horn!

2. Griffith, Berserk Manga (Millenium Falcon Arc) - If I can do Melfice's armour successfully, this is the next project I'm going to tackle. God knows how long this will take though! This is partially an "I love him" costume, and partially a "god dammit if no-one else will do him..." costume, as seriously, its gorgeous.

3. Naomi Armitage, Armitage (figurine costume) - One costume I've been admiring for ages. Its sassy, and gives me a chance to play with cyborg parts XD Latex experimentation, here we go!

4. Tsukiyomi, Shadow Hearts Covenant - I have an unhealthy obsession with fusions from the Shadow Hearts games, and Tsukiyomi is my favourite design. Its also one of the few that is actually more human, and perhaps easier to construct.

5. Chiana, Farscape - The thing that is stopping me from doing this is that if I do it, I have to do it right. My favourite character from the series, and I'd want it to be perfect. I'd be bribing Tak with cookies for her make-up skills I think

When I'm not so lazy, I'll go through and put picture links in. Also shock! There are female costumes in my dream cosplay list. Well two females, and one thing that technically has hips and breasts, not quite human though

Chiana! I did her once, quite a while ago. The makeup isn't actually all that hard to do, just needs some decent blending.

I always have trouble with these threads, because I have a habit of just going ahead and trying to make my dream costumes! (Examples of this being Satine and Mary Spencer, both technically way beyond my skills but I did something with them)

So this is more of a "future" costume list than a "wishlist", so to speak:

1. Tira, Soul Calibur III. My planned Amecon masquerade costume. A lot of things appeal to me about this costume; the interesting fabrics and feathers, the design of the top, the unusual hair, the fantastic makeup and the hula hoop of doom!

2. Astharosthe Asran, Trinity Blood, blue ballgown (artwork). Not for this year or next, but probably the year after. Asta is awesome, I love blue, I love slinky dresses and cute hats... it has to be done. It's complicated, as TB stuff tends to be, but I've done TB before and survived!

3. Edea, Final Fantasy 8. Gorgeous, gorgeous design. I will make this some day. I already have sources for most of the stuff I'll need for it, it's just a matter of finding a con I can do it for due to transportation issues.

4. Edward Scissorhands. It's been on my "maybe" list for a long while, but again it's a matter of finding the right event for it and putting aside the time to make it properly. Plus putting aside my utter horror of making belts and buckles *shudders*

5. Dark Knight Paine, FFX-2. I love me some Paine, and this is probably the most impossible costume on my list. This is one I'm not sure I'd ever be able to do, because of materials and construction issues (and not knowing how I'd move). But I like to never say never, so maybe some day!


12 Nov 2007 - 23:59925
well here are the ones that I wish soooooooo much I cud make but cant... because my dump brian cant think of a way... and im lazy

1- Paine (Full Throttle): Final Fantasy X-2

2- Taki: Soul Callibur III
this one... i will make wen i get money to buy the fabric lol and also need to learn how to do shoulder pads

Well I did have her done a first and ready for October Expo but spilt idian ink on it... so now im too lazy to remake one but im sure someday i will

4- Student holder deck of cards: Final Fantasy XIII Agito
I am really tempting to do thid one for either May or October Expo... but first I need to learn how to make should pads... and figure out their names since i cant seem to find their names ¬¬

5- Quezacotl : Final Fantasy VIII
Wonna do this beast because he looks awesome and would be fun to walk around as lol... but first of all where to start ^_^" haha maybe wen ive figured away

1 - Freya Crescent ~ FFIX
When I first played FFIX, I instantly fell in love with Freya the moment I saw her :3 This is being planned for London Expo May 08 though, so I'm totally happy! =D

2- Klonoa ~ Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil
Aha, I love Klonoa xD I first got a demo of the game and I instantly wanted to cosplay Klonoa when I saw him xD He's so sweet~

3 - Fujin ~ Final Fantasy VIII
I've wanted to do some FFVIII cosplay from the start of my cosplaying experience. My friends beat me to Selphie and Rinoa [although I'm not too fond of Rinoa so I wasn't planning to be her anyway xD], and I'm not too fond of Quistis. I love love love Fujin so much, I'd love to cosplay her one day.

4 - Sorceress Edea ~ Final Fantasy VIII
Same reason as above. Along with the fact that Edea is beautiful and her costume is amazing! I've seen so many good Edea cosplays out there that it's just pushed me to be her one day.

5 - Aisha Clan Clan ~ Outlaw Star
When I first watched Outlaw Star, I only saw a couple of episodes but I totally loved Aisha when I saw her! I love her personality and her long plait is really awesome. The only downside is the skimpiness of the costume. I'll need to build up confidence for this one xD


13 Nov 2007 - 10:52937
OMG Some other people who want to do Dragoons!

I'm trying to convince Efia to do a Rose costume while I either do Zieg or Dart (Even considering a Divine Dragoon version of Dart O_O) but I'd love to do Lloyd as well.

So many AWESOME armoured costumes from that game LOL

Oooh, nice choice. I plan to do as many of his costumes as Pudding-ly possible.

Anyhoo, that aside, my 5 dreams at the moment (not including the above, as that's a given) would be; not really in order:

Puppetmon (Digimon) - Well, y'all knew that already, but, meh. Currently in the planning stages, I have decided to begin working on it during the x-mas holidays, cos I just don't have the time/energy/money right now. There's a few other Digimon too, but I'm going to do Puppetmon first.

Magneto (X-men) - I need to learn how to sew spandex and make/source a muscle suit before this could be achieved, plus I need to figure out which of his costume variants to do.

Tentacle Monster - This I've said before too. Again, it would be time consuming and involve various materials (spandex. lol.) that I'd need to practice with. And I need to design it properly first too.

Link & Navi (Legend of Zelda) - technically this counts as 2, but,meh... Firstly, Link in any form (probably Ocarina of Time/Adult or Twiglight Princess though), which would be achievable. Although I wanna make the sheild/sword, which isn't currently. What is pretty impossible about how I want to do this is that I would like to have a spinning Navi somehow attached to something, preferrably a light-up, talking one. However, this is probably stupid & dangerous & would get confiscated by any ops. lol. Also, I want to be a life-sized Navi, but I'm allergic to face-paint... d'oh...

Cheery Littlebottom (Discworld) - This would be amazingly cool & hilarious. The main problem is my lack of armour-making skills and possibly the cost. I plan to do it eventually, but it might take a while to get up the courage/time/willpower to start on it.

Quote alexfratley:

O_O You're going to crossplay as Alexiel!? That's brave dude LOL

I'll add in Illidan from World of Warcraft and the Dragoon characters!

OH GOD. YES. I LOVE CHEERY!

If you did this, I'd definitely want to cosplay a discworld character to match you :3 Maybe I could get away with Susan? XD

edit: as for my top five? I have no freaking clue, almost all the time I decide I like something I just do it *shrugs* xD

Oohh Damn this is a hard one, My list likes to change!

1.Hinoto from X/1999
Pretty damn awesome costume, But I haven't it yet due to a few catches. There would be no possible way that I could walk in it, and that wig would tangle like hell!

2. Kamui from X/1999
I will definietly be doing this at some point. I absoluetly want a set of the swords from X! Con safe.. I think Not (It would be as tall as me!)

3. This Sakura costume Here
Thinking about it, If I want this done for summer, I should really get started now...

4. Yuuko From xXxholic in this kimono:- ohhh Pretty
Because I have a real thing for interesting Obis.

5. Krache Or Princess tutu from Princess tutu.
I don't Think I would do kraches normal outfit since it is just too revaling, But there are some awesome DVD cover designs!


16 Nov 2007 - 00:221032
1: Sakuraba Haruto from Eyeshield 21. Because I'm not badass enough for Hiruma and because the White Knights are AWESOME Evil as Hell costume, since I'd want it to be a real strip and AF armour. Probably not con safe and waaaay too expensive for me to ever be able to afford. Damn.

2: Lavi from D.Gray-Man. Love his 2nd exorcist uniform. I want to make it out of some awesome pleather-y byker stuff, which is a bit beyond me at the moment. And the Hammer - will get my Dad's help for that. Wow, I want to do this costume so much!

3: Beatrix from FFIX. IX is my favourite Final Fantasy game, and Beatrix is a kickass character. I really love her outfit and would love to try and make it some day... That's about it :3

4: Din from Zelda//Oracle of Seasons. I've always wanted to do a cosplay from Zelda that wasn't very often done, but still a great outfit and character. Hopefully I'll actually have this done for Ame 08, so I'll be Goddess-features of Saturday :3

5: Yukimura Sanada from Samurai Deeper Kyo. I've always loved SDK and Yukimura is obviously a favourite character of mine, but his outfit is so smart and nice. If I ever do it, I hope I can get the phoenix's on his lapels symmetrical 0__0 I also need to learn to suit black hair! *curses*

That was a lot harder to come up with than I thought. I guess all the characters I really want to cosplay have relatively simple costumes ^^ Lucky, that, but I guess if I ever wanted to challenge myself, I'd definitely go for one of these~


16 Nov 2007 - 09:211038
Quote Mana:
And Klonoa! Awesome. This is my one of my dream costumes too, I have no idea if I would do it though...I hope you do this outfit because it really is cool! ^_^



o: I didn't notice that your dream costumes said Klonoa too! xD If I am gonna do it, I'm probably gonna get it done waaaay in the future. I don't think I have enough experience for a fursuit yet xD

@Kelly: I'd love to get an Outlaw Star group organised sometime! =D


18 Nov 2007 - 16:091061
Ok these are not in order of preference:

1: Seymour Ohminis (FFX) - Final Form inside Sin

2: Safer Sephiroth (FFVII) - Final Sephy in Northern cave, angel form

3: Keiji Maeda (Samurai Warriors 2) - Think I may do this costume next year....

4: Setzer Gabianni (FFVI)

5: Lu Bu (Dynasty Warriors)

Oh and Howl but I'm doing that costume now! I'll do all of these in the future I hope.

Erm yes! o.o Hsien-Ko is probably my favourite of the female darkstalkers

If i were doing darkstalker cosplay the only person that i might be able to pull of is Donovan, but i'd have a massive fear of messing that up too >.<

I've already done one dream cosplay (manji from blade of the immortal)

so my list is now:

1. Captain Harlock and Mr Bird (Captain Harlock)

2. Makoto Shishio (Rurouni Kenshin)

3. Master Yupa (Nausicaa)

4. Sir Fratley (FFIX)

5. Alphonse Elric (Armoured Version) (FMA)

plus probably loads of others XD
