こんばんわ!私輪 アシュリ です!!!

Hello everybody! I am Ashley! I am 19 the newest member of this group. I joined less than a month ago when Jessi introduced me to everyone!

I enjoy the Japanese Culture as a whole and love studying it. I am currently in JPN101 at my university so please excuse my mistakes. I’m still learning. I like cosplaying weird quirky characters because I feel like I can portray them the best since I am, weird and quirky. I don’t care about gender or how much clothing they have on (even though my parents do. lol) and I try to make or modify everything I wear. I have only bought 1 of my cosplays because at the time I wasn’t confident in my sewing skills. Over the years I have cosplayed 13 characters and I am about to add a 14th this weekend!

I am into a little bit of everything when it comes to anime and manga so if you are interested in chatting it up I love random messages!

gigigigi~!

Informal Greeting

Loving love, all the time.

Hello there, new readers!  My name is Jessi.  Or Jessily-One, or Llama, or Nessa, or Bloo, or… It goes on a little bit.  In our lovely family I am the shortest and fourth youngest, even though I feel quite old.

My hobbies include cosplay, music hunting, smiling, laughing, finding puns, and falling.  A lot.  Llamas and giraffes make me happy, I couldn’t be happier in the cold winter weather, and my bed looks like a bird’s nest made with blankets and pillows.  Simple pleasures of life, that’s all I want.

Hi There!

Hello there everybody! Arianna Sterling here.

Some of you probably know me already from my blog Otaku Life: Anime Review, where I ramble about whether things were good or not and also seem to swear too much for my own good these days. I’ve been running that blog for nearly a year now (it really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long) and finally I suggested to my family that we start up a group cosplay blog. Obviously, the idea went over pretty well, because hey, here I am at Dysfunctional Cosplay!

But anyway, about me for anyone who hasn’t met me before…

I watch too much anime. Seriously. I have a 150 Anime Challenge going on this year and am keeping up with 23 currently airing series. I try to go to as many cons as humanly possible. Apparently I act like a mom, which probably explains why I’m the mother of the family. I have a strange love of fire, and a severe hatred of the Twilight Saga. I write a lot of queer YA fiction and dream of writing for a living.

Also, I really need to stop adding to my cosplay list.

Hola!

The newest fashion craze; wearing sunglasses in the dead of night.

I am Emmy! I’m one of the youngest members of this here group at age sixteen- but I don’t mind at all! I like cosplaying as girls for the most part; I have to really like a character to cosplay as a boy. (And even then usually I won’t do it.) I typically don’t sew my costumes. I lack the creative gene to do it. I’m also just lazy. So usually another member of this group or someone I commission from will make it for me!

           My favorite part of cosplay is the wigs. Wigs are seriously sometimes the reason why I will even cosplay a certain character! I’m still fairly new to this hobby, but I’m pretty good with tips and tricks on wigs!

I hope to learn more and build my knowledge on cosplay!

Other than cosplay, I like Steampunk, Lolita, anime, manga, reading, sleeping, and learning. And I love history.

I love being nerdy.

I’m very indecisive when it comes to picking characters to cosplay as… For now my list is Asuka from Evangelion, Megumi from Shiki, and Charlotte from Madoka. May or may not try to get a Drrr!! cosplay going.

I haven’t started on any of these.

>mfw I don’t give a single fuck

Welcome to the Family

Once Upon a Time, in a Land Far Far Away, known only as the Ohayocon Forums, something strange and new was born.

On a shining afternoon, a virtuous, innocent otaku maiden asked the friendly population for cosplay suggestions. A young, uberly tall knight rode in, suggesting the maiden cosplay a golden haired brute. The maiden packed up her belongings (consisting of a few raspberries and rainbow-colored string) and moved to the village of Durarara!!.

The village soon blossomed, with many new friends joining together. There was the maiden and the knight, a giggly llama and many others. Together, they worked hard to make their home prosper.

After they had spent many days tilling the fields and having fun together, the giggly llama made a shocking discovery. Truthfully, they were all related! There were parents, and children, and even an aunt they found wandering in from time to time! They were so overwhelmed and excited by this realization that they threw all of their energy into building and turned Durarara!! into a sprawling modern metropolis.

Once the city was up and running, the dysfunctional family found that it may have become too large for its home and began to search for a new place to live. Soon, they all discovered a new land called Skype, where they could all fit comfortably and still have room for adoptions.

The family expanded further still, bringing in pets and more children, and to this day the kind-hearted family doesn’t turn anyone down. All you have to do is pass a 300 question calculus exam and—just kidding! All you have to do is say hello!

Still, the family knew it could never be satisfied with containing its insanity in its home and so they spread out to a cosplay blog for your entertainment…
