Listen, I’m a dork. I know I’m a dork. I’ve known for many years that the magnitude of my dorkiness is too powerful for some. But I’ve gone up a whole new level. Friends and watchers: I introduce to you….Furries!
That’s right, furries. I never was a fan until an online friend showed me that it was totally okay to be a furfag. Along with my cosplays for next year’s Anime Detour (which I am planning as we speak), I want to work on a quadsuit. I will be grand and mysterious. And hot and awkward.
I know it sounds weird, but it’s actually really cool if you get it right. And I’m a hella fast learner, so it shouldn’t be too awful for me, besides the sheer amount of time, cash and effort that this’ll cost me.
I even found this .pdf file, an essay on the mechanics of the stilts.
The cosplays that don’t require so much effort include Yui from K-On! and Nia from Gurren Lagann.
Here’s the video for what my Yui cosplay will look like. I’ll be the one in white.
I’ll be basing my costume off of this person’s stellar cosplay:
Also, if you know anyone with a Gibson Les Paul Cherry Sunburst, hook me up.
