It’s becoming cold in Japan. It is. It’s in November already. Aw it’s been a year since I became a cosplayer. My level of cosplay has been better than the beginning? Although I have cosplayed so far, I do not have a lot of cosplay buddies. Mostly when I cosplay with someone, just one or two persons are fine. Because I like decent pictures. I mean, I do care about posing, angles, and location. I like to see a big group, but don’t think I want to foam.
Having said that, I got a nice oppotunity that we could foam a group of Shinsengumi[真撰組] in GIntama[銀魂]. My cosplay friend whom I had never seen in real life(I mean, we have kept touch in with through the circle) asked me to join the event. She who could cosplay Okita, was meant to bring her buddy who could do Kondo. How lucky I am! I was on it, so we went to the event last week…
However, I feel Gintama doesn’t seem to be that popular overseas. In USA, when it comes to Shounen Jump, it would be either Naruto or BLEACH. Umm, here Gintama is the most popular among young people. Especially among girls. That is because Gintama is kind of contemporary, I assume? Naruto is a ninja thing American like, and BLEACH is a samurai thing they like too. But Gintama…yes, their costumes are not that retro though the characters use a sword. Oh I am not sure. What about your country?
The two cosplayers really did a good job. The Okita cosplayer who has a kind of shota-looking mostly worked as a photographer on the day. And the Kondo cosplayer pretty looks like him. You know, most Gintama cosplayers do either Hijikata or Okita if they choose from Shinsengumi because Kondo is too manly and muscle. Girls hardly copy that! So that is why this Kondo cosplayer is actually popular among the Gintama cosplayers. When we had a photoshooting, some cosplayers came to say hi to him…
Okay, time for photos! I hope you like it.
Fishy! Okita is fishy!
