I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but has anyone here tried to cosplay as a rock star or musician that isn't J-Pop/J-Rock? You know, like KISS, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Lady Gaga for something more modern? Right now I'm thinking of working on Eddie Van Halen, since I already have a Rock Band guitar painted like his Frankenstrat and all I need are his duds.

I've done Marilyn Manson (obviously who that is) and Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth). Both were Halloweens before I knew what. Cosplay was, but I think since u was going for the look of an actual person, it's still technically cosplay.

Very true. Like I said, I saw plenty of KISS cosplayers, since their look is distinct, and other shock rockers like Gwar and Alice Cooper are great choices.

True true. In fact, we have a GWAR cosplayer at our local con lol And a full Kiss band there too haha

I think your idea of Eddie Van Halen is a great one. I'd do it if I cared (I can play a lot of their music, as well as Eruption perfectly, so..) but that's why I picked Dani..lol I'd rather do that look as opposed to the Van Halen look..

If you do it I'd love to see pictures as that's awesome though haha
I wish I got pics of my Dani..My manson was a bit off though because I was in school so I had to keep to the later stuff when he stopped being all extreme.But my Dani I even put my hair in fake dreads and colored the areas that needed blue and had the coat and everything. I did the version for the song Nymphetamine.

That's awesome! I can play a lot of Van Halen stuff (Mainly from VHI and 1984) but for the time being until I get a real Frankenstrat, my cheapo little painted Rock Band guitar will have to do. I have the hair for pretty much any 80s metal star, but Van Halen is one of the more iconic.

For Hard Fest 2013 I dressed up as the little girl from the "First of the Year" music video...

It seemed fitting at the time...lol

It counts to me. Hell, I've been wanting to do one of Weird Al's costumes from one of his music videos like the jumpsuit from Dare to be Stupid or the Kurt Cobain outfit from Smells Like Nirvana. Music videos definitely count.

I always wanted to do Ace..I like his makeup best haha
I never bothered learning any KISS on guitar, bass or drums though..Though it's not like it's a hard style..
