I was wondering if anyone was thinking of cosplaying as a character from a fairy tale or even mythology? I mean like, Alice in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood... gods from all legends and cultures...

I was really thinking of an Anubis cosplay. You know, the Egyptian jackal-headed god of the dead? Yeah, that guy. I really love mythology, especially Egyptian mythology. And Anubis is my favorite god ever.

:3

Anyone else interested in a fairy tale or myth?

Exactly! I hope we get more people interested in this! The more, the merrier!

With enough people, I'd like to do a photoshoot.

I don't think I would do a cosplay from any mythology, but it is certainly one of my favorite studies! I love Norse and Egyptian Mythology. <3 <3 A Hel cosplay would be pretty cool lol

Yes, Norse is cool... but you could really only be Thor and be recognized.

I'm a fan of Egyptian mythology myself. As well as Norse, Celtic, and Native American. Greek is cool... but cliche. xD

I'm definitely going to be Anubis. He's too cool not to be!

I'd totally try to do an Anubis in his dog-face, human body form but I'm not really the kind of guy to have.. the figure to do so.

Basically, at the time being shirtless cosplays are off limits lol.

For these types of cosplay... are you "moe"fying it... ala Hetalia? Or are you going by the book with it?

If I were to cosplay from Mythology, I'd totally want to do a Greek one. I know, I know. Cliche. :lol:

@CherryWolf- It really doesn't matter. Whatever you'd like to do! I myself would try and make my Anubis look somewhat like he does in the old paintings on walls in Ancient Egypt and such.

Yeah, any god or goddess or anything like that would be cool.

If you know Norse mythology there's a lot that would be noticeable like Valkyries, Dwarfs, Elves, Fenrir!~<3

I'm just barely starting to look into Norse mythology. It IS freakin' cool though. I'm most familiar with Japanese, Egyptian and Greek myth.

Yes, I wonder though, how many people would recognize Norse figures! We could make it a test! Give out candy and stuff to people who know who you are, what your the god/goddess of or what story your from... and what culture!

Anubis is pretty easy to guess though... xD

I really love the creation myth...it is so bloody XD My favorite figure is Loki and Fenrir. Definitely look more into Norse Myth because it is really interesting and more violent than others lol

Yeah an Odin cosplay would be great. what's cool about going as a God or something is that people potray them in different ways. I mean if there was a group with Hades, Poseidon and Zeus would be super cool. I'd loooove to see a Bast (goddess from Egyptian mythology) who has a cat head and some cool accessories or a good Solid Ra. If you want some cool reference pictures, boot up a copy of Age of Mythology. They have some cool art on the way they potray the Gods of Greek, Norse, Egyptian and the Titians. ^_^ I'd go to this photoshoot. ^__^

So I'm officially being Anubis as one of my cosplays for ACen 2011.

Anyone else interested in a Mythology/Fairytales gathering?
