probably; it's not that hard for girls we just get to pick whoever we want to cosplay; it's never occured to me as weird cosplaying as a guy which is why I admire the guy crossplayers they're awesome especially the sakura with beard I saw at the last japanex that was epic ^_______^ i love the man misa on this thread too awesome crossplay =3

I didn't uh.. Actually see a shoot of any kind...
Maybe I missed it?

Anyways, I took pictures of a few of you, I think.
I should be adding them into a little collage-type-thing with videos that I'll upload to youtube sometime this week ^-^

Yeah mostof the group shoots and cosplayer organised events seemed to go down the drain; the only way mostof us got group shots were by screaming around the place for other cosplayers and kidnapping them when we saw them. That wasfunXDD Lol yay I saw an awesome lolita crossplayer guy-girl he was reallyleggy it was so cool he even shaved his legs. I got to hug chii too he didnt shave his legs and was wearing trainers but still cool and i got hugs =3And we saw a sailor moon character not too sure who though been years since I watched that XP He was awesome too.So all in all I saw three guy-girls ^___^

That was probably me, I was in a steampunky brown/cream dress on saturday and a pink camo skirt on sunday.

And I'd WAXED my legs, I'm a srs business lolita. Wear it all the time.

I tried to wax my legs once for a lolita crossplay. Gave up because it was too painful D:

I had mine done professionally =P

I'm sick of shaving, so I figured it's prolly the best way. Need to get my facial hair electrolysed off too, HATE shaving sfhaujfhdsjfsd

Also most of the 'lolitas' around on saturday/sunday made me BAWW because the dresses were so bad and probably so expensive. eBay and places like SaiSai charge waaaayyy too much. I wanted to go tell people they could get much prettier outfits second hand from brand, or handmade by lotsa seamstresses around online!

So many really pretty girls looking like they were eaten by lace.

Lolitas are not girls in short black dresses covered in plastic-based white lace :<

That could have been me, I cosplayed Queen Nehelenia on sunday and we did our Sailor Moon skit in sundays masquerade. I didn't get to walk around Expo much though cos I spent a lot of time finishing off bits of my costume in the cosplay changing room ^^ (Darn I need to finish my costumes BEFORE the Expo shows next time.)
Amollion I think I spotted you just at the end of Sun masquerade but didn't get to talk. Get some nice shoes -the cosplay deserves it, and always pack an emergency BIC razor. :p
Anime Angel I didn't see you this time but I saw loads of pics of you from the weekend - you have so many fans! ^^ looking good in those pics. Blisters again! are you sure you're getting the right shoe sizes? I don't suffer from blisters at all, even with my very high heels.
