They call it ‘Neroware.’ Here is the company’s description of the technology:
“Neurowear is the name of our project to develop fashion items and gadgets using brain waves and other biosensor with “Augumented Human Body” as the concept. Other than the first project “necomimi”, we are planning to development other various items.”
The concept of this technology is pretty cool, but would anyone actually use it aside from the core niche of furry cosplayers?
Cowboy Bebop was one of the first animes I fell in love with as a young highschool freshman. It was also the first anime series I watched from beginning to end. Previous to Cowboy Bebop, I had only watched a slew of anime films. So Bebop was the first series to show me that serialized cartoons could be artistic and carry a mature story arc. Ahhhh, those were the days.
Anyway, here are some great photos taken of a group of Cowboy Bebop cosplayers. The group includes our favorite data dog, Ein! Photography by ‘photo_wench‘. View artist gallery by clicking here.
I don’t think I have ever featured any photos of an original costume on AWSM Blog before. So this post marks the first. The photos below showcase an original costume called ‘Terranaut,’ created by Flickr artist, mcj2burn.
Details on the costume are sparse but here is a quick description from the creator:
“This is a costume that I’ve been working on in my spare time – hope to film a short with it soon.”
I think the costume is pretty badass. Great design. Futuristic, yet it still pulls from modern day astronaut space suits.
Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch is now in theaters, and there is no doubt in my mind that I will soon be seeing a flood of girls cosplaying it up as the leading ladies from the film. I am not complaining. I like it.
So let’s get started with some fresh photos of cosplayer, Itsuka, doing a damn good job looking like Baby Doll from Sucker Punch. Photography by Anime Conji.
Aaaannndddd here’s part three of my Megacon 2011 photo gallery! Yay! Hope you all like the photos.
The best part about going to conventions like Megacon is all the amazing costumes and the people behind them. Megacon has grown to become my favorite con. Every year I meet new people and have so many conversations about the nerdiest stuff on earth. I love it. I wish it was a quarterly thing. I would so go every quarter year. *sigh*
Alrighty, folks, I have posted photos of myself and friends at Megacon, but I am finally done organizing my favorite photos from the con, taken by yours truly. I took A LOT of photos, so I apologize for the amount of time it has taken me to sort through ‘em all.
I will be breaking up these galleries into 3 different posts. So here is one of three. The other two will be coming shortly! Enjoy!
