I could totally do that.
So, I’ve really gotten into this planning for cosplay thing. I’m getting excited even though Anime Boston is still ten months away. I’ve already told people (a.k.a. my mom) that what I want for Christmas is the whole-event pass for that con. I cannot believe how much of a total dork I’ve become.
Anyway, some of you lovelies have made cosplay suggestions.
Maka is someone a few of you (Baka-Raptor, blissmo) think would go well. I would have to agree, although I have to admit I’m not sure I would really want to. I like Maka, and I do think it’s a great suggestion, but while it remains on my list, it is a bit far down it.
Fate from Lyrical Nanoha was also suggested (Yamcha), but I’ve never seen Lyrical Nanoha, and she’s a bit too loli for me >_<; Sorry.
Unfortunately, I think Kaere is too much of a reach for me in the end =( Her hair is waaay too long, and I think I’d need to be a bit taller to pull it off. Also, panty-flashing the con the whole time doesn’t really appeal too much to me (a bit odd, since I did consider briefly going as one of the Battle Athletes Victory girls, and they’re not very fond of pants).
Honestly, I’ll probably go as Ayu. We have the same body-type, and I can ‘uguu~’ fairly convincingly.
But, as I was thinking, I had a brainstorm – I could go as ten-year old Ayu!
What disturbs me is that I think I could probably pull it off… even though she is ten-years old and I’ll be twenty by then.
Which kind of made me wonder – am I moe myself?
The idea that i would be is, honestly, a bit horrifying. After a bit of thought, I’ve decided that I’m probably more loli than moe, although I do have some moe traits. I’m kind of mortified for myself that I’m even typing this, but somehow, I can’t stop.
- trademark utterance (in my case, sounds sort of like ‘uhlll~’)
- obsession with a certain item (rubber duckies, alarm clocks)
- look younger than I am
- go brain-dead over cute things
- possess some quirky speech traits (my Japanese prof is going to kill me some day for insisting on using the personal pronoun 我 [‘ware’], and I have been known to refer to myself in the third person)
- possess some just flat-out quirky traits
But, in the end, I think I’d just qualify as loli since I swear my brains out, am fairly combative in nature, and shoot stuff for a living. I don’t picture moe as greeting people cheerfully with, “Hey, bitches! How the fuck was your day?” (no, Mari-tan doesn’t count – she’s a severe exception to the rule). And my dreams include starting a bar fight and becoming a kicker for my school’s football team. Additionally, that I don’t possess some terminal illness or cry cutely around guys seems to flunk me immediately out of Moe 101. So I’ll settle for being described as ‘loli’ – if I appeared in manga or anime with my friends, I would be the token loli.
I’m trying to figure out why I went into all that. I’ll blame it on food deprivation (uhll~, no one’s back from the grocery store yet, even though it’s past midnight!).
Anyway, I think I can do a convincing ten-year old Ayu. However, if I can manage to pull together a totally kick-ass Kamina outfit, I’ll go as him.
That would be so bad-ass, wouldn’t it? Me as Kamina I mean. My boobies would probably hurt at the end of the day, but I don’t care, it’d be waaaay cool.
Although I also have Yumi in mind. But only if I get to kiss Sei like she did. Wait, what?
Actually, I’d probably be a better Sei, since she’s lewd like me. And she jokingly hits on others, which I’ve also been known to have a habit of doing.
So, the list:
- 10-year old Ayu
- regular Ayu
- comatose Ayu
Ok, I’m done with my banal cosplay post now. Does describing myself as a loli increase traffic? Only WordPress’ll know. Time to go hunt down a squirel or something to eat before I pass out.
