I dunno if inspire is the right word...

I am in awe of some cosplayers. With most cons I'm like "How'd they do that?!" but never have the confidence to go ask them. It causes me to aspire to making more complex cosplays.

Though I supposed I am inspired by some cosplayers... When I see a cosplayer who isn't a size 10 or smaller yet are doing a "risque" cosplay, their confidence rubs off on me. I then feel inspired to cosplay feminine characters in dresses. It makes me feel like it's okay for me to cosplay (sounds weird) and on top of that it's okay for me to cosplay characters that aren't totally covered up.

So yeah... I believe it's more that I aspire to be like them

I look up to so many cosplayers and really wish to attempt to attain even a fraction of how good they are. But I really need to be more patient first XD.

Anyway here goes here is just a few of them.

A good friend of mine and someone I have the utmost respect for their work is Kimpey He makes some glorious cosplays and I have seen the work he puts in. Plus they are always done on incredible timescales. I love how he can take basic things I 'd have thrown away and turn them into something awesome looking.

Someone else whose dedication I admired also is Grayskull He really does put a lot of work in and gets brilliant results. I really loved his earthworm Jim It was one of the most hilarious Cosplays I have ever seen.

And of course we cant have a post about Inspiration with Tab You really cant help but be Inspired by the insanely Intricate work. Most can only dream of reaching this kind of level.

Finally a guy who Inspired me originally when I first met him not only with his cosplay but also his outlook on cosplay and personality is MangaChild Hes made some funky costumes from such a wide range of things. Also I will never forget the Stein Antics from that Minamicon. XD

Inspire might not be the right word, but every time I see Silver's Warrior Rikku I love it. Seriously, I just think it's awesome.
Would love to cosplay her myself, but everytime I see Silver's I think 'I couldn't do it as good as that'
So actually, it's the complete opposite of inspiring xD

But aside from that, I'm going to agree with the everyone inspires me
Every time a new photo of a complete cosplay is updated, I always wish I had more complete than I did, that I could make more

Oh wow! Thank you to those who have given me a mention, that means a lot. *bows*

There is so many cosplayers that inspire me. Very difficult to narrow it down. Here's a few that do amaze me.

Lex_is_Evil, for being so amazing with her detail and always looking so stunning. Her Trinity Blood costumes still have me in awe.

Sands, for truly epic work. Especially in make-up.

Ondangochan, for having such an amazing range of costume styles.

Uni, for doing such beautiful work. Her C.C is a perfect example.

Nocturnal Blossom, Manages to pull together such amazing dresses. She always looks so stunning in them. Loved her Sister Noelle and Kate.

Monkey, Her craftmanship is really becoming amazing. Her Prussia was outstanding.

Sonia Leong, for managing to put together such amazing costumes for which she always looks so sexy in. Still love her Isaak.

Lulu Rose and Sephnoir, love they're wig making/styling skills. Something I always struggle to do.

Tab and Xae, For putting together such epic projects.

Demented Kid, for putting together such great pieces. I do love her Jareth.

There is so many more who do inspire me in so many ways.

Oh dear lord, there are so so many Cosplayers who inspire me in my own Cosplay work. Needless to say the UK Cosplaying community is chock-a-block with extreamly talented and skilled Cosplayers. I am always in awe of the skills and confidence of my cosplaying buddies FreyaRule, picklesofdoom, Sasashie, Tif9123 and neko_riddles who are all a joy to Cosplay and have fun with

And then of course I bow down to the Epic skills of PapercutPerfect, SephNoir and Ranma1-2

But as I've already said there are TONS of epic Cosplayers out there and each & every one of em is an inspiration within themselves! Corney I know but still Hope everyone keeps work hard to improve/refine their already Epic Cosplaying skills.

Every single cosplays I meet inspires me somehow. I've seen many amazing costumes over the year and a half I've been into cosplaying and it's been so worth it. A few people that have inspired me are StrawberryCherry since she looks so realistic to the characters she cosplays as, PapercutPerfect for creating such amazing costumes especially since she crossplays as male characters, FuriePhoenix since she has a great attitude towards the costume she does and others like Tif9123, Sasashie and Leumas are just some of the people I know (plus the ones I've mentioned above) that have given me the confidence to go all of the costumes that I've got completed, in progress or planned. ^^

Couldn't have done anything without you guys. ^^

Huh, who inspired me, I wonder? There are so many amazing people out there that create the most beautiful things, I can't really decide who inspires me the most to continue with this hobby and want to attain their level of amazing as well.

I guess for starters, my friends, who are always supportive of me and create pretty awesome costumes themselves, and then above that would be the really amazing people I see at expo. Can't think of any names off the top of my head, but if I see someone and think their costume is good then I'll usually go and tell them so.

And then above that.... I'm not too sure, to be honest. Gerodere is just one of them, as is HeeHee and Priestess Shizuka. And I'm sure there are tons of others out there that I watch on deviantart or elsewhere that create amazing costumes (but for some reason, I can't stop thinking about how their personality is also something that inspires me, and a lot of online cosplayers that I've seen or talked to have always seemed... well, a little stuck up or bitchy, I'm sad to say.), but for now I think I'll be content with just saying that I appreciate pretty much everyone I've ever come across in this hobby.
You guys are the best!

GunstarVixen and FairyPorchQueen truly inspire me all the time! They really make me want to learn more and attempt costumes I would normally just be like "that's too complicated for me.. ill never do it".

Actually, if it wasn't for FairyPorchQueen giving me some advice about Ariel's mermaid's form I wouldn't have decided to make it for myself! So mega kudos and thanks to her.

I also get alot of inspiration from my friend NightmareWings!

Fellow Insomniatic Cosplay Members They were my original inspiration and they now continie to be. They're always ready to listen and offer advice with my costumes. And now I'm a member of them... I feel so unworthy >.<

MoonLily For being extremly inspirational in not only how she makes her costumes, but in the roleplaying side too. Also helps me SO MUCH with my costumes, it's unreal. A really great friend and an awesome cosplayer.

LittleGeeky An incredibly sweet and wonderful person, who constantly inspires me to be like her. Her youtube videos are abseloutly outstanding. She manages to be in charatcer whilst adding her own, unique twist to it.

Demented-Kid Admired her costumes from afar for ages, then finally plucked up the courage to ask her for a wig commission... best decision I've ever made. I found out how lovely and down to earth she is and I discovered more about her costume, which are just phenomnal. Her attention to detail is amazing and she's always prepared to go back to costumes and learn more with them, which I think is very inspiring.

Monkey Abseloutly beautiful costumes and so much intricate detail.... they're just so..... <3

CrystalNeko <333333333333333333333 This gal's costumes and her amazing personality. She's always improving and her costumes are so stunning!

Emzone Her detail = <3 And her wigs are also beautiful too. She's honest about her costumes and is also incredibly friendly.

TheMagicalLucy This gal's sewing skills are MAGICAL! She names herself well. Such amazing costumes, they're constructed amazingly and her detail is amazing too ^^

wow this is such a nice thread!

Lex-is-evil my most inspiring person, is one of the first cosplayers i ever met. She makes costumes so perfectly and pulls off my favorite character 'Sakura kinimoto' so well. She always goes into great detail and drives me to make my cosplay better every year.

Crystal Neko She pulls off such stunning cosplay for her age. She is a really nice person and is very talented.


Tab (khaoskreator) Just WOW! everytime i see his work and the rest of Team Khaos.

Ipala
James manages to organise a masquerade and still have time to make awesome cosplays with Joe. Amazing!


Sephnoir She is a very skilled seamstress, i will be rooting for her at the Eurocosplay finals!!

A few of my friends over in Belgium inspire me. Like Larissa, Asten, Starla...I originally met Asten and Larissa at the MCM expo. They all make their costumes, and I marvel at the work they do ^^ So I try to take time to make my Cosplays well, consider different wigs, even fabrics and such ^^ And also my friends in my local town who make awesome costumes like Luna, Abi, Vicky, and Shannon, and of course, lots more! I kinda feel proud of them! XD


04 Oct 2010 - 12:5142194
cosplayers who inspire me? well, short answer, everyone! all cosplay to me is worthy of note and praise, and give respect to everyone who does it. but here are a few names of some specific cosplayers who inspire me, and why.

Sands, Silver, Tab, Sephnoir, Sephirayne and Ilpala spring to mind immediatly! Their work was some of the the first i saw when i joined this site, and in my early cosplay days, i did regard them somewhat as cosplay gods. their work defined and inspired my early cosplay experiences, and im so glad to have met most of them!

SJbonner, Leadmill, Juggernaught, Alias.com, and all the other Valkyrie crew. They all do such amazing work, and their steampunk stuff really does define the genre for me. these guys have more than earned my respect and admiration! lovely people to talk to as well ^^

Ranma 1-2- I wanna get more into crossplay, and if im half as good as this guy, ill be happy!

Frederica_la_Noir, Defrain, Limegreenjelly and Gaming_Goddess - Thdese are jut a few of the people ive met and befriended on my cosplay journey. the work of all these people continues to amaze me. their attention to detail is impecable, and im always longing to see their new creations!

HeeHee and Hopie-Chan are the two cosplayers that have inspired me right from the get go. They've been the two cosplayers that I've looked up to throughout my cosplaying experience, for costumes, wig styling and how brilliantly their skits are put together. This skit in particular has really pushed me to get some Kingdom Hearts cosplays done that I've been planning for years.

As far as UK cosplays go, PapercutPerfect, CrystalNeko, Efia and Miiol are people who I met at the start of my cosplaying experience and have been a big inspiration to me. TheMagicalLucy also has some brilliant cosplays and I really enjoy seeing her progress. Also Relion continues to amaze me, as I've seen her cosplaying grow from the start.

someone who is inspiring me at the moment is a beautiful lady (no names mentioned) who despite having some rough comments is still making costumes even though she nearly gave up on it all

so i hail her as being inspirational plus she also offered me help on costumes to me that is a truly amazing cosplayer

At the risk of sounding extremely suck-up-ish, can I add these people to the list: CI mods, and event organisers and helpers like Orihime, Ilpala... *insert a long list of wonderful names here*

You guys don't just make great cosplays, you make cosplay great. You lead by example and you are inspirational. <3

TBH all of my friends who are cosplayers inspire me cause they give me the urge to keep going with my costumes when I get knocked down.

I know this may be a bit of a backout but this is how I genuinely feel.

I agree. I'm inspired as well when I'm with my fellow cosplayer friends.

I've recently moved in with other cosplayers and I think we are going to inspire each other.
