To-Do List: Oldies but Goodies

*Firstly, welcome to my new blog-design

I thought it'd be fun to show you some of my planned and non-scheduled cosplays, that I put into the category "Oldies but Goodies"

Characters from older shows or movies, that just attracts me as a cosplayer, both because of the stories, but also the simplicity that they have.

So here they are in no particular order

▼  Akane Tendo ( Ranma ½ )
Ranma ½ is actually my first manga and the thing that took me on this emotional rollercoaster ride that is called fandom!
I can't believe it's been over 10 years since i started that series, and I remember not really like Akane too much back then, but over time I've grown a fondness for her, and especially the short hair.

▼  Ash Ketchum ( Pokémon )
I mean, come on, who doesn't like Ash? No one? Yeah I thought so, he's a pretty unstylish kid, I heave to admit, I mean just look at that bowling shirt and denim pants, oh gosh. But I can't help myself, for all the things I dislike Ash for, he makes up for with his personality.

▼  Edward Elric ( Full Metal Alchemist )
He's a cyborg, he's short and he talks a lot (with his mechanic fists that is) - I liked Edward from the get-go and it's just a series I loved watching. I really just want to walk around being a cyborg and complain about my height.

▼  En ( Sailor Moon R )
So many people dislike Ali and En, and I can't figure out why? I mean... every character in Sailor Moon is slightly annoying, so that is just not a fair thing to call them - I think they're super adorable and just look at that hair, ugh <3

▼  Inu Yasha ( Inu Yasha )
Inu Yasha was the second anime I watched to it's fullest, and I have to be honest, I did it for Inu Yasha, I felt like he was a good-looking piece of man-dog-folk and somehow his aggressive, but protective personality just spoke to me.

▼  Joe Shimamura ( Cyborg 009 )
Oh yeah! Not the re-make! The oooold series, that's where it's at. I watched most of the series when I was about 13-14 and I just couldn't get over the characters and also that very flashy costume. I can't wait to make this cosplay honestly and I'm only stalling because I'm still not completely sure of how I want to make it, all I know that Joe is gonna be blonde, because that's what he was on my old VHS tapes!

▼  Usagi Tsukino ( Sailor Moon )
As I said, every character in Sailor Moon has some sort of annoyance to them, and that includes Usagi, but I just can't help myself, I still love her to bits, even though she can be such a airhead at times, and I just think that she suits my con personality so well + I'm dying to make the wig.

▼  San ( Princess Mononoke )
Now I don't have a great story about how I watched this movie as a child and that I had a deep-seeded connection with the heroine of this movie. Far from it actually, I did a lot to avoid this movie, because I felt like it was too hyped within the community and I was just sick hearing "MY CHILDHOOD", but last year I decided that it was time and completely fell in love with the movie, so much better than I expected and I felt like I could maybe add San to my cosplay repertoire.
