If you follow my Twitter, I’m sure you saw some updates this past weekend on the con I went to in Detroit, Youmacon. It was my fourth year going, but it was the first time I was able to go all three days, since I now have no high school or college on Fridays. And of course, I wanted to cosplay. The first day, I used my Princess Mononoke cosplay, which I’ve posted about before. The other two days, I used the Tobio Kageyama cosplay I just bought a couple weeks ago. And on that Saturday, I found out about a Haikyu!! photoshoot that was happening, which I ended up attending.
So, I’d say half of this post will just be the Haikyu!! photoshoot, which I’ll start with, then I’ll showcase some of the cool cosplays we saw throughout the con.
Here’s my Kageyama cosplay, I was wearing my glasses, but honestly who doesn’t want a Kageyama with glasses. Also, this was Sunday, and my wig decided to actually work with me unlike Saturday, when we had the photoshoot. Of course.
All the Karasuno cosplayers!
This one was a fluke, but everyone just looked so confused. Hinata had just asked me what to do, I asked the other Kageyama, and Hinata asked Suga. And then I guess I threw my hands up. Nobody knew what was happening for pretty much the whole photoshoot.
I can’t remember what the prompt for this one was, but the model pose Suga in the bottom picture is killing me. And the people in the front were Oikawa, Kuroo, and Kiyoko as some sort of AU, not entirely sure what that was about, but they made for some good pictures.
3 out of 4 Nishinoyas, Tanaka, and Akaashi. And yes, that one Nishinoya was probably over six feet tall. Which I thought was absolutely hilarious.
Setter group photo! I swear when one Suga was lying down, I heard them make a comment about being the prettiest setter and I about lost it.
Seijouh photo! Funny thing, that banner came from the Nekoma cosplayers, and it just fit for the picture. They had been going as Seijouh fangirls beforehand, which I never got to see the cosplays for. They ended up not being in many photos because they were putting those costumes on for more pictures with the Seijouh cosplayers.
Nekoma! I think two Kuroos are a bit much for Kenma.
Fukurodani, though it’s more like Bokuto and Akaashi pictures. That bottom one was the only picture I took out of this whole post besides my selfie.
Oikawas and Sugas. I love this picture a lot I’m not sure why.
Oikawas and Kageyamas. This one was a lot of fun, honestly. Again, I had no idea what to do, but I looked over at the other Kageyama, and copied them. Which, at that point, Oikawa wasn’t looking at me, and then turned to see a fist in his face. I felt bad, but at the same time, it was just funny to see his reaction.
Nishinoya and Asahi. If I could’ve gotten a video of this one, that would’ve been better. Nishinoya ran and sprung up, and then Asahi spun him around.
Sugas! I’m not sure what they were doing in the bottom picture, haha. The Sugas were the greatest, sweetest people. The one in the uniform I saw probably five or so times outside of the photoshoot, and when we couldn’t find the other cosplayers, they went off to find them.
The Nishinoyas. Honestly, all three of them were so good at being Nishinoya, it was quite loud over in our little corner while we were taking these pictures.
Me and the other Kageyama! I was so scared to smile for all of the pictures, so my face looks a little weird, whoops. I’m the one on the right, if you couldn’t connect my picture at the beginning to this one. Also, I had to get some of the pictures on here from the other Kageyama’s Instagram, and here’s the link so I don’t get in trouble.
The moms with the children. When someone said the prompt, I slowly inched my way up there, not sure if I qualified as a “child.” But I guess so.
Nishinoyas, Tanaka, and Kiyoko. Again, not sure what Kiyoko is supposed to be.
Of course, we couldn’t do a photoshoot without including some references
That jacket isn’t even mine, some lady gave it to me and told me to pose with the others, so the confusion on my face is entirely genuine, which only made the picture even better. And I’ve decided I need to get one of the jackets if I continue cosplaying as Kageyama, because it was cold at that convention, and my Yuri On Ice jacket doesn’t quite fit for the costume.
“Yamaguchi nice serve!”
So, that’s all of the Haikyu!! pictures I have. That was quite a bit, but it was so much fun to take those pictures that I had to include all of them for you guys to see.
Yeah, there’s a lot of pictures. And there were so many more I didn’t include. But, I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the awesome cosplays! I’m not sure when the next con I go to will be, but I hope I can share some more cosplays here then too.
Also, I said I would have another post out earlier this week, but that didn’t happen. I realized how hard it was to review the anime I was focusing on. I think I’ll still post the review later, but not as a standalone post. It ended up being only about 400 words, and all of my posts are at a minimum 800 or 900. So, next week’s post is my OWLS post, and I think I’ll just post the review a few days before or on that Friday, depending on how quickly I can clean it up.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next week!
