Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 11th, 2009 | Images, Itoi

Yes, you read that right 😯

Forumgoer “Bigot” (sorry, can’t seem to find a homepage link) submitted this to Starmen.Net a while ago. I don’t think anyone has ever cosplayed as Shigesato Itoi before. But here it is, someone’s gone and done it!

He included this as the description for the submission:

My Shigesato Itoi costume for spirit week. First day of it will be celebrity day. I decided to add a twist and be a Japanese celebrity. =D

As you can tell, the shirt is just a plain black shirt with a photo of the design of the REAL Smash Starman shirt taped to it. Parental consent sadly allows parents to stop their kids from buying $50 shirts (even if they can afford it themselves). The Mr. Saturn plush was home-made by me, with some help from my mom.

I feel like such an idiot the way I made this costume possible.

Has this happened in other fandoms? Has anyone ever cosplayed as Miyamoto? I’d be curious to know. All I know is that this = crazy. You know you’ve truly made it in life when people start cosplaying as you πŸ˜›

I only wish he’d spiked his hair a little. Would have been perfect!

Look at how terrible his posture is in comparison with Itoi’s. I laughed.

Also is he wearing pants under that shirt? It doesn’t look like it oh god

Actually I was, there were just khaki.

I think his posture was bad trying to balance the Saturn on his shoulder πŸ˜‰
