Cyborg 18 by clefchan Cyborg 18 by clefchan
New pictures of my 18 cosplay. Too bad my belt buckle cover broke during the day, I had to remove it ;(

I like this picture, I think it really shows 18 personality

thank you so much to Flexgraph who took this picture! he always do a good job!! I 'm not the only person who has to be credited here.

just being technical (^^) : Cyborg 18 or C18 is the french name of the character I don't know about others european countries )
though,I know there is also an alternate name for her which is: Artificial Human #18
usa/ canada and maybe more):android 18 or 18
japan:Jinzō'ningen #18
etc etc

By the way, I don't really understand why 18 is called Android in the US version because, being an android means to be a plain robot. But 17 and 18 are part human ( they say in the story they hate gero for turning them into cyborgs, she even got a baby, how can a robot do that?) so technically, 17 and 18 should be called cybord and not android. However, 16 is a full robot (if I remember) so he can be called an android.

Hi Clef. Your Cosplay is spectacular. The quality of the dress and the attitude are nailed, and the shoot is really genial.  About your doubt. In some countries, C 18 is called A 18. The explanation.... The traslation, in some countries is Android 18 (A 18), in others C 18 (Cyborg 18). Android definition is a Robot with human Lookalike. And a robot one is a machine without one  determinated shape. Other things to say about the serie. In my country the androids talk betwen her and  C- 16 says... "you be humans at the first but i was created enterely in the doctor Gero laboratory". I don´t know but must be that the doctor Gero, mades one android ( a robot with human shape). or three. That´s your choice. One salutation.

Yes I agree they should be called cyborgs however 16 is an actual android. There is a scene where the three are talking and 17 asks 16 why they used real bodies for 17 and 18 if he didn't need one for 16.

Nah she's right, they were Cyborgs, my best guess is the reason they called them Android in the american dub is cause it just had a better ring to it.

Awesome 18 cosplay! You look great as her.

As for Android vs. Cyborg think of it this way. Androids are 100% man-made sentient machines that were built to represent and resemble humans. A good example is Data from Star Trek The Next Generation. You can also consider the Terminator an Android.

Cyborg is a blending of man and machine. Meaning they were constructed using remnants of an actual human being. The most famous example is RoboCop. He was constructed from the remains of Alex Murphy. Other examples are, um, Cyborg from various DC comics and the Borg from the aforementioned Star Trek the Next Generation.

So Jinzo Ningen is Artificial Human. Artificial Human = Android.

BTW, if you ever make it over to Germany for a con, let me know :) I'm a cosplayer as well. I try to go as often as I can to the ones here and in England...I don't go over to France too often because of the language barrier -.- I've had a hard time every time I've gone w/ my limited French.

LOL Dr. Gero created Androids no.1 to no.16 from scratch, they are androids for sure,
but as he said 16 is a failure (maybe due to the fact that from 16 onwards the androids have their own mind)
since then he took a step back to use human body instead, therefore 17, 18, 19 and himself 20 is converted by true human,

and my theory is he call them "androids" just to make sure that the Red Ribbon doesn't pull back all his research funds. LOL

I most likely have commented on this before, but when I see this photo I can think of nothing other the Android 18, a perfect capture of her personality and outfit. Very Very Nice Job :D
Always wanted to go to a cosplay to see how people act in the costumes they make or have friends that could have imaginations like this also.
Awesome cosplay work, I enjoy your work!
