One of the things that I like doing (being a list freak) is creating arbitrary lists of "things to do within so-and-so period of time." Parasailing, kickboxing (hello, next semester), skiing, parachuting, visiting so-and-so place, flying an airplane, getting closure on an old conflict, climbing a mountain (not just any mountain, like the small one near my college; something I can brag about), attending Comiket, etc. As much of an anime geek as I am, I haven't tried cosplay, but I've always wanted to do it eventually.
So, while it isn't remotely like parasailing or mountain climbing, I'm pretty stoked about doing my first cosplay this summer at Miami's Yasumicon. My best friend is also working on her first cosplay (as Bakemonogatari's Senjougahara, complete with stapler), so hopefully we can both attend Yasumicon cosplaying as
The character who I chose will be easy to do. I picked her because A) I like her, B) she has a distinctive enough look, and C) I don't need a wig- I really don't want to mess with that sort of thing. (For example:
Fushigi Yuugi's Miaka would only satisfy requirements B and C,
and Strawberry Shake Sweet's Julia would only satisfy requisites A and C- as much as I love SSS.)
But I'll leave my cosplay choice as a surprise until the con. Just because. :P
