Everyday Cosplay

This makes perfect sense.

I do it with hairstyles to an extent. Yay for crazy anime hair. Or, the closest realistic approximation, anyway.

Not that my hair really always cooperates with that, but hey; What can you do?

Still, I love the idea behind this.

Dammit, just got sidetracked my a MASSIVE browse of geeky t-shirts... several I seriously want, but I don't think my family particularly want to encourage my geekiness, so Christmas is out of the question ;)

I am actually trying to do this. I'm trying to get a modern day Red Mage cosplay. I've already got the hiking boots, the plasic sword (I still need to paint it), the beat up leather messenger bag and the really sweet hat (I need to change the hatband though.) When I have the jacket I'm looking for, I'll basically be done. I'll be cosplaying in secret like you!!

I will specifically combo outfits to either resemble Frank Castle, or Anton Gorodetsky from Night Watch. SO pleased this isn't just me.
I love you guys.

Guys, LISTEN TO THIS GIRL, wear suits more often :)

I have this Iron Man t-shirt a friend got me, it has all the different iron man armours running down it, which totals about about 75 different ones, I love wearing it under a zip up jacket and when people see like the top few and go ''Nice Iron Man shirt'' I slowly unzip the jacket and see their jaws drop, it's highly satisfying :D

I wear a suit as often as possible.
And wear converse. Sneaky cosplay as David Tennant's Doctor. Just need the coat.... fun getting this pointed out as well. And tempted me to buy a sonic screwdriver - just makes it so much sweeter now.

For her birthday, I got my girlfriend a pentacle necklace and a matching one for myself. Anyone that has read the Dresden Files should get the reference.

I'm blue collar, so get little chance to dress up. Shame, it's quite nice.

As for covert geeky clothing.... I once got a sweater because it had a pattern almost identical to the one David Dixon wore when he played Ford Prefect in the Hitchhiker's Guide miniseries.

Even more covertly, I sometimes wear a theme t-shirt (I've got like fifty different ones) under my work shirt, including a few I made "myself" via sites like Zazzle and Cafepress. Touhou Project, Cthulhu Mythos, Umineko no Naku Koro ni, C64 games, The Divine Comedy, assorted webcomics, quantum physics, obscure defunct websites, Pet Shop Boys songs, the occult....

I can only recall purchasing an item of clothing because of a character in a movie. To this day, my coat of choice tends to be black, double breasted, wool, and as often as not best described as a Pea Coat because of the movie the Boondock Saints.

I suppose my attire generally matches that of the movies heroes. As we speak, I'm wearing brown leather boots (I have favored boots far longer than I knew about Boondock Saints and my time in the Army reinforced my love), blue jeans, a black unadorned t-shirt and I'm using my not-exactly-a-pea-coat (too long and it has a collar) as blanket stand in as it is quite cold in my apartment.

Heh, same with me only my coat is a close resemblance to John Preston's Cleric coat from Equilibrium.
And I do like to sport my Green Lantern, Doctor Who and various other geeky shirts on a daily base. Nobody ever gets the GL logo...

Oh. Fuck. No.

When you wear a suit and tie to work every day, you go home at night wishing you could burn it. they're generally (unless you pay through the nose for them) far less comfortable than the standard jeans/t-shirt combo, they lack the warmth of a hoodie or the resilience to mud and grime that most of my clothes have. I don't care whether it looks attractive or not - if a girl is looking for men in suits then she probably isn't my type anyway.

The Alien gear from your link is awesome. I didn`t know anybody made them. Thank you for that.

OT: Almost my entire wardrobe is made out of shirts with a reference or two to geeky subjects. Thank God I have a job without a dress code.

I have a pair of culflinks in the shape of a blocky white cross just like


cept in regular sizes (duh those huges things would be too ridiculous IRL :P) Imagine the shock expressions from ppl when i tell them i'm atheist lol

This is a genius idea! Now I have the opportunity to make myself even more ashamed of liking anime!

Time to go irretrievably deep into fanboy territory and do some of this stuff.

I know I'll worry like crazy that I'll be found out, but I so want to anyway...

Geekshirts are awesome and all, but they make me a way too easy target for stereotyping, so for me those kind of shirts would only be allowed to wear in my own house or at geek conventions. So instead, I wear shirts that are geekish, but only to people who recognise it as what it is, and who are therefore a geek themselves. Which obviously makes the whole stereotyping thing a lot less worse. For example, I have a shirt with this print, and one with a Triforce in it that almost looks like some random tribal tattoo thing. I still don't wear those for job interviews obviously, but you get the point.

I have a replica of Travis Touchdown's (No More Heroes) Jacket and one of his T-shirts. I also wear my Organization XIII (Kingdom Hearts) coat as a trenchcoat if it's cold out. I used my Spirit (Soul Eater) cosplay as a suit for a wedding


and I have a hoodie that when zipped up all the way is the Shinigami's (Soul Eater again) face.

Whoooooah there, There is a significant amount of epic emanating from that hoodie!t

Where can you buy those? Or did you make it yourself?
Everyday cosplay is something I try to do somewhat, but I rarely see clothes that resemble characters costumes.

Mwahaha, now I just have to find a way of inscribing these on everything...

I frequently wear a pair of goggles (any day where it's not so cold I have to wear ear muffs or a hat) that I bought specifically because they're the same as the ones Ramona Flowers wears. Unfortunately it won't be so subtle when I dye my hair pink on tuesday.

I always wear my Kingdom [Hearts] Hoodie when I go outside <3

Sampsa:
Who is this "everyone's favorite former psychiatrist?" Only psychiatrist know to the great public I recall would be Dr. Phill (though I don't know wether he really has diploma, too lazy to google).

She's talking about Harley Quinn, the Joker's sidekick (hence her added touch of the "J" necklace).

After I finally got around to watching Firefly the first piece of clothing I got was a brown leather trench coat. I wear it all the time and when around people who have seen it I do hear the odd quote but not often. I'm considering expanding my secret cosplay wardrobe though.

I made it out of a clip-on tie by cutting off the back strip putting a piece of cardboard inside to make it stay solid and pined it to the back of the tie.
it's a little to thick though so I'll have to trim it a little for when I wear it next.

NOBODY GETS THE GREEN LANTERN LOGO?!?!?!

WHAT KINDA BACKWARDS TOWN DO YOU LIVE IN DUDE?!?!?!

For shame for the geek community....*sigh*...

GPD Hat. I think it's both subtle and obvious at the same time.

You must live in the middle of nowhere. We have people that get called out for sporting the Orange Lantern Logo, or the Red Lantern Logo.

Everybody here tries to outdo each other with a combination of Geek and Obscure. It looks like I'm going to win with a Loading Ready Run t-shirt. I'm thinking the Runners shirt, but that will depend on what the LRR "Corporate" package was.

Don't you know that there is an entire industry filled with cosplaying ladies?

Who knew DOAX had so many female fans?

;)
