Welcome back to the monthly edition of “Mikey Does Exist” XD.
Just got back from Youmacon, and although I was not feeling well for most of it, I still had a ton of fun and am super excited to show off the new cosplays from the weekend!
Jordan came this year so we actually had 4 new costumes in total, 2 for each of us. The first was pair was actually Jordan’s idea to begin with, and I’m so happy we made it happen because it was ridiculous and fun: Calvin and Feilx Fischoeder from Bob’s Burgers!
You can be sure we’ll wear these again because it was so much fun, though to be fair we really didn’t get much recognition. We also sadly never found a Belcher family while we were wearing them. Actually we didn’t see any other Bob’s Burgers cosplays there! Still, this might be my new favorite pair so you can expect to see them again next time Jordan goes con-ing with me. Also, the best part is my good friend decided to join us as Gayle! She even had a cat anus painting!!
If there’s anyone else out there who wants to join us as random Bob’s Burgers side characters, or even as Belchers, let us know cause we’d love to have a big group some day!!
The second new pair was something that’s been on our list for a long time, as it’s a pair of characters from one of Jordan’s favorite anime series. I’m referring to Kamille Bidan and Quattro Bajeena from Zeta Gundam.
Since Gundam Wing was more popular in the US than the UC timeline series, we really don’t see a ton of MSG or MSZG cosplays. There was one other Char cosplayer, dressed from Mobile Suit Gundam, but I didn’t manage to get a photo of him.
We got a good bit of recognition in these, which kinda surprised me. But as several people said, you never see Zeta cosplayers so people were pretty excited about it. I also had several people ask me “Have you seen Char?” which of course the only acceptable answer is “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
I also had a few people shout “Sieg Zeon” my way, which is… kinda ironic but I suppose it’s appropriate. It’s rather akin to when I’m wearing Edgeworth and people just scream “OBJECTION” at me.
I would love to do a shoot with a photographer at some point with these two, I think that would be fun and I feel like Jordan would be excited to have nice photos of them, since Kamille is one of his favorite characters. The Rennaisance Center is definitely a good place to photograph these two, but with it being a con weekend is was pretty crowded so there weren’t a lot of open spots we could use. I’m super happy with how these all turned out though, especially for being cell phone photos.
And of course we got some goofy but appropriate shots since this does actually happen on the show.
Needless to say we had some fun in these cosplays and I’m looking forward to wearing them again some time soon.
These were the only new cosplays we wore this year, but I did have one other debut of a prop I’d been working on. My friend decided to do Zelgius from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn, so I got to make Alondite! I was super happy to deliver it because I’m really proud of how it came out.
I was even happier when I saw it with the cosplay though, because it was absolutely amazing!!!
This was their first attempt at foam armor and it turned out SO WELL!!!
Also, we had an Ike there for the photoshoot so with his Ragnell and my Gurgurant, we had all of the Tellian divine weapons in attendance!
So despite being sick, I still had a great time at Youma! My con schedule is done for the year, so I don’t have any more events coming up until Ohayocon in January, but I do have some commissions this winter, and I’ll be working on something new for myself for Ohayo (though I haven’t figured out what just yet).
So, I’ll leave all of you with the rest of the cosplay photos I got this year and bid you adieu until next time!
