Best thing about going to anime conventions is all the friends you can make. Seriously this is a sweet sweet hobby. We love what we do here at ACFRADIO.COM
One of the main reasons why I love going to conventions is not just the chance to meet people but also the art of cosplay. Yes Cosplay has become a way to quickly make friends of similar interest. I cant believe all the people I meet (and girls) going to conventions. In high school you can make this many friends of similar interest I tell you.
My friend Raffi whom I meet at Connecticon (Here is the state of Connecticut) has some kind of deep warrior connection with Zack from Final Fantasy 7. His cosplay photos are romantic and hypnotic. Check it out my friends.
If that is not badass then I dont know what is. Raffi is a passionate cosplayer you can tell by the photos. Then again your heart has to be into it for you to cosplay. Not only is it hard to cosplay but it is also difficult to make or buy a high quality cosplay. This is an expensive hobbie (unless you know how to sew stuff together). The leather the cotton. To be able to cosplay as your favorite character like Raffi here is an otaku (or anime fan’s) dream. You can check out Raffi’s cosplay fan page here, follow the link Legacy Cosplay.
But that is not all. Maybe its just me but have you seen many people cosplay Final Fantasy 7 characters. Perhaps Sephiroth or tifa and Cloud. However I have not seen many people cosplay as Barrett. Check this out my friends.
Barrett cosplay. Rare isnt it. I dont usually see many people cosplay as this famous final fantasy character. Either its too expensive or hard to make. I must give this cosplayer more than credit for pulling this off. Honestly it is the one and only Barrett cosplay I have seen in years(or at all).
But wait here is more final fantasy 7 cosplay for you.
Girls look so freaking hot dressed as Tifa. The whole gang is here. But wait some one is missing. Oh yes. Aries. Don’t worry we cant miss her. She is an important part of the Final Fantasy 7. (Yufi looks fucking awesome too.)
How romantic. Just like the game. Isnt it messed up how Cloud just took Zack’s identity and pretended to be him. Had Zack been the actual lead character of Final Fantasy 7 how would things have turned out.
Oh yeah and we cant forget the most mysterious character in the entire final fantasy game who needed his own game to fully explain the final fantasy 7 story. Vincent Valentine my friends. This one was cosplayed by my friend Skully who is in our radio show.
