Staff Blog: All About The Cosplay

Written by Colin — 19 Jul 2010

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I wrote on the staff blog but here I am! It's been pretty slow lately in regards to news, but that's Square Enix for you.

I'm going to talk about a little something that we kicked off last week. It worked out better than expected and is certainly something that could become a staple of our community. I'm talking about our Cosplay of the Week feature! We decided to start this simply because it's really something that has become part of the Final Fantasy fanbase and definitely something worth sharing.

Unlike other cosplay features, we don't plan on doing just a collection of photos, but instead focus on one cosplayer at a time, even give a shout out to those that made the cosplay possible like friends and photographers. Also, contrary to popular belief, this isn't just a chance for me to peruse deviantArt for pretty girls dressed up as Final Fantasy characters, I did call it "Cosplay" of the week for a reason and that's so our picks won't be limited to just the gals.

What I would like to know is how many of you have actually cosplayed yourselves? Any seasoned pros among us besides Lauren, Fozzie and Marina and who have or who would you cosplay as if you ever had the chance?

Before I forget, if you have any suggestions, ideas for the feature, heck even recommendations for other cosplayers, we would definitely like to hear 'em.

Until next time!
