I like the fact that you had this picture taken from different angles, so you can have a very precise souvenir of this moment.

Doesn't look like you were having fun Jaz. It almost looks like you were forced into that cardboard

Teenage Cardboard Loony Turtle... Bwahaha.

Would any of you believe that it's me in all of the following photos??? Yep, you guessed it, I'm an anime cosplaying freak (or simply "freak", as some of you might say! ) For these costumes, my face is either covered by a mask or obscured by a fake beard... um, yeah. Each pic was taken during the annual Anime North convention in Toronto, ON, Canada (The most recent one took place this past weekend, May 27-29, but no pics yet!)

Perfect Cell from Dragon Ball Z, Anime North 2001 (in the left middle photo)
Taomon from Digimon at AN 2002 (Just changed the link, very first pic!)
Dark Sage from Yu-Gi-Oh at AN 2003
The Baron from The Cat Returns (Neko no Ongaeshi), AN 2004

Being a Ghibli fan, I have to say I love your Baron costume! How's the head made? As for cosplaying, well, why the hell not. I used to wear costumes in theatre college as part of the costume design/interpretation department's annual display. It's not something I'd personally do for fun now - although I did have a female friend who walked around Wimbledon in 18th century dress, which was hilarious - but I've got respect for people who throw caution to the wind in pursuit of a good time!

Unless you're a furry. *shudders* In which case, keep it to yourself!

btw lol nice bandwidth steal message there on the second one.

Hey thanks for the compliment, sjh! The head's made of papier-mâché (y'know, using the old cover-the-balloon-with-newspaper-and-paste trick), and thankfully it was only half a head (the back of my head was actually exposed! If it covered the whole head, I would've suffocated!)

I always try to include a papier-mâché prop in every costume... the Taomon mask and giant foxfeet, the Dark Sage's staff and Yupa's pistol (this year's costume, Ghibli again, yay!) were all made of p-m!

Oh, I had fun. I made the costume myself. I think it was just difficult to make to costume stay on - that's why I wear that expression on my face.

EDIT: Actually, that safety notice is rule 7 of the lab rules on the door of the Chemistry lab in my school. But there it reads "Do not run, push or act stupidly in the laboratory". I found it nifty, and changed it a bit.

On a side note, I am watching Monty Python's Holy Grail - Special Edition. And I just realized, that Camelot *really* is a model. They built it out of plywood. The Accounant Killer Bunny said so!

Not good at all, in fact.

blasphemy!
Aside from being hilariously funny in a typically irreverent Monty Python kind of way, many of the silliest bits are based on historical fact that has been clouded by centuries of misguided embellishment.
For example, there were no horses in Britain during King Arthur's time, but many later stories set in that period feature knights on horses...hence the coconut shells to simulate the clopping of a horse's hooves.
The witch trial, although humorously presented, was a point-by-point recreation of many documented witch trials from that and subsequent periods, and people's unquestioning acceptance of the proof offered in those trials and the ensuing hysterical witch hunts have been attributed to widespread ergot poisoning (ergot is a fungus which attacks rye and other coarse grains, and it causes hallucinations when ingested in bread made from affected grain. LSD {lysergic acid diethylamide, or "acid"} is in fact an ergot extract.). Basically, people were acting crazy because they were tripping their asses off without realizing it.

Monty Python is like the Beatles. You either like them, or you're just weird.
