Sooo, this year I went to NYCC as Kaku and my sis was Kalifa~ :D We weren’t recognized as much as with other costumes in the past, but the times we were spotted by OP fans made up for it! On the first day, this dude wanted to take a pic of Kaku bumping into his face with his big honkin’ giraffe nose XD and I am happy to report that every Zoro we ran into knew who I was— even got a ‘zoo’ comment from one of them, A++ to you man!!
(In my journey to challenge each Zoro at the con to a rematch, I sometimes forgot to put my bag down, resulting in the outing of Kaku as a TJ Maxx enthusiast 8D;; )
The major downside of the cosplay was the fact that I had to pull the giraffe head down over my eyes so I was basically blind for every photo. Can’t tell you how many times I was facing the wrong way or even holding my swords wrong fkjgf let’s just say Kalifa was basically Kaku’s caretaker xD
Honestly, there were waay more conpics than I’m posting, but these middle four turned out the best. Now that the con’s over and such, my sis and I are planning to do one last mini-photoshoot just for fun~ :3
AW YEA and as a bonus, there’s mee at the bottom, hello tumblr! don’t mind my messy after-midnight hair, just focus on dem giraffe earss *u*
WELP, that’s about it! I’ma post some more pics of OP cosplayers from the con eventually, ‘cause there were some really SUUPER ones <3
I adore this cosplay. You’ve shown the world the full cosplaying power of a giraffe! Kaku would be proud.
