I think Fatora's breast size is controlled by the same magical force responsible for Alielle's fluctuating age. OAV2 is the only time we see Fatora naked for any length of time, and at that point she seems to be about as blessed as Alielle in that particular department. But in Alternative World, they seem noticeably bigger (leave it to a Fatora fan to notice these little differences ^_~). I know, it's just different artists asserting their individuality, but it still means that I don't have much of an idea of how big they should be.

I could quite justifiably omit them completely... but somehow, that seems like a bit of a cop-out. And I just know that one of my friends in particular would never forgive me if I did that ^_^

Breast size B should be fine for Fatora. ^^
Atleast thats what I think. Size A won't do her much justice.(obviously, in comparison, every other female has around DDDDDDDDD, but oh well. Anime bust sizes are a mystery. Ther ewas one anime which had the main character knock over a couple of books because her breasts were so big. I would find that scary. It was shown in the AMV mocking 'fanservice'

Faking that while showing no skin is easy, B isn't that big. Tho, however - I did never notice she had a different cup size in TV2. Must be because I don't look at that, unlike a certain someone I won't mention. XD
in your case, I'd definitely pick OVA2 - that way, you escape the taint of TV2 AND have it easier. Sounda great to me =P

Ahem.

And as for me - nah. Its probably solely because of my hair and the fact that I have no beard and tend to talk pretty high for some reason(much merriment at school on my cost, whee!). Males don't have long hair and no beard after all ^^

As said: I'd wish I'd be feminine enough to do that. But to actually be, I'd probably have to hunger myself way below the male average(She is skinny), and then learn how to properly do makeup, which, just as that, would be quite troublesome.

However, as for Ifuritas bust -> while she is showing skin, I know that there is a way to fake that. I am not exactly sure about it, I'd just have to check some sites if I really wanted -that-. Latex can do anything these days, from terrible wounds to completely alien faces. Breasts are pathetically easy in comparison.

The biggest problem would thus not be the actual costume(most of it is actually very easy, as said, I was pretty mfar in planning it - alot of it can actually be bought and modified, just take her trousers), but to avoid freaking out everyone I know ^_^' Say, I'd go to Ayacon with that costume. Now, what would, say, Tsukasa say about it =D
THATS the problem at the entire thing ^_^' Since In iffys case, I'd have to be serious about her, to do her justice. I'd hate to mess her up, of all characters.

Only female I ever got across well was Ukyo from Ranma. That was on a german con, though, and she hardly required any makeup at all since I did an earlier form of her. ^^ I fared surprisingly well in our lil Ranma group.

Cosplay?  

Man, I haven't thought about that in a while...

Now, for the dirty secret... Yes, I used to do it, a bit.  ^^;

Unfortunately, I really haven't done anything new in recent times, mainly becuase I found I enjoyed making the costumes more than I did wearing them, and unfortunately, making costumes isn't something I have any time to do anymore (and my way of costume making usually involves power tools and several days in the good sunshine.)

Anyway, I haven't pulled these out in a couple years, but I did do a couple of El-Hazard cosplay projects...

My first Makoto Costume, with my friend Jenny as Iffy...

http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-7/307931/makifu2.jpg

My second Makoto costume.  In a bit of tongue-in-cheek good humor, I finally answer the question as to why Makoto has all those far-off gazes in the later series...

http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-7/307931/realreasonMakotohasthosefarofflooks.jpg

Just what was he thinkin' about...

*looks over old pics*  Geez, man, I can't imagine myself without the beard and short hair.  They almost feel like another person posed for these pics.

As to pertaining the topic at hand, to all the aspiring cosplayers thinkin' about joining that new generation of cosplayers...or somethin'...

Just have fun with it.  Don't obsess with body images and the such.  It ain't gonna happen, and as long as you like the character, why should anyone else's opinion matter.

It's called CosPLAY, so have fun with it. When I was doin' it, I did and when it stopped being fun for me, i stopped. No biggie.  I have a lot of fun memories, plus a whole stack of celebrity photos of people I met as Makoto...

Happy sewing...

Oi, I got long hair and no beard! Well, I also shave everyday (my beard, that is).

Ah, you're friends with Jenny?  ;D I've seen pics of some of her costumes. The one of Merle from Escaflowne was pretty wild.

Guys doing Fatora sounds like fun...

Not for Fatora ^_~
(sorry, couldn't resist)

After all the innuendo I've written in the round robin, I can't believe I left myself wide open like that  :P

More seriously, just to be clear, I didn't mean to poke fun at scruffy or heavy-set people doing cosplay (I'm a scruffy heavy-set guy myself), or at men doing cross-cosplay (they've got more gattsu than I've got).  It's just that the fictional character of OVA-Ifurita is rather dear to me, and seeing a scruffy heavy-set guy portraying that particular character, even in good clean fun, did unpleasant things to my brain  ^^;

Oh, wow.  I came across those pictures awhile back, but for whatever reason, I didn't know that was you.  Great cosplay, dude.

Yeah, I was friends with her.  Unfortunately, I haven't spoken to her in quite a while.  I don't do cosplay that much and we pretty much attended different cons.  Que Sera Sera.  It happens.

She was one of the biggest perfectionist cosplayers I ever met.  Fangs and cat contacts... yai!

Gosh-shucks.  Yeah, the OVA 2 outfit will always have a fond place in my heart as the costume that made Rio Natsuki squeal in delight.

True Story.

The Jason school of CosPlay, where the philosophy is "What you lack in sewing skills, make up for with large encumbersome props that easily overshadow the costume."

Ahh, memories... Mostly of lumber and lots and lots of spraypaint.

That I did and that be who I am. I think.

Never, in 15 years?

Damn, either you have been to very, very small cons, or you've been turning around at all the wrong moments.

Geez, just from the group of my friends who've done El-Hazard cosplay at multiple cons I can count on 2 hands...

Lessee... 3 Makotos, a Jinnai, a Shayla, an Alliele, a Nanami, A Fatora, An Ifurita, 2 Fujisawas...

Now, if I were to count every El-Hazard cosplay from just random people I saw over the last 7 years... hmmm...

No, sorry, too many.  ^^;

Am I wrong, or is it not even possible to have seen an EH cosplayer in the first 7 of those 15 years? :P

dooky:  .....................ah. you're right.

everyone: what cons are everyone else going too? For the 1st half ov the year, im going to Confusion, Marcon, Katsucon, Anime Central, and Otakon.

Yeah I have a lot, but they really need rescanned because I scanned them poorly a long while back when my computer skillz were not as mad.

However, the biggest archive of cosplay photography has to be Kivin Lilliard's page at http://www.fansview.com

Seriously, there are tons of El-Hazard cosplayers to be found there.  Best place to start would be between 1998 - 2000 when the most people were doing  that series.

Yep, yep.

As for cons, I pretty much have cut my number to about 1, maybe 2 a year and then only smaller cons like Ikasucon, Ohayocon, Sugoicon, etc.  I only did one this year and that was mainly to see some old friends and help them out.

I met him a few times at Ckon. He was praising me to death for turning my friend's wheelchair into the "Mach 5"

Well, that IS pretty darned creative and cool-lookin' at least in my opinion. Kudos!

Also cool... but, if you don't mind my asking, who are you supposed to be? I don't recognize that particular character. I think I'd remember a guy with a pyramid head and a huge sword...
