And as a special bonus! Just when you thought it couldn't get any more orange.

What is the point you ask? If you clicked on any of the above links I'm sure you would agree that none of them resemble Riza very closely. Well, so what? Cosplay is a hobby, one which many people participate in it. Why is this girl any different from any other cosplayer?

“i hate to revive this stupid topic, but i saw this costume at AX2005 and i was like OMFG it's the imaginary riza girlfriend!!”

You say you saw her at AX? So did I, but unlike you, I decided not to judge her before speaking to her. She is a very nice person, and the dress detailing is amazing up close. Did she do something to you personally? No? Then why are you so insistent on bashing her? You do not own the character, and neither does she. I guess you both have equal rights to do what you want with it, and she chooses to Cosplay it (not nearly as poorly as many others, I might add). If this is all about that imaginary girlfriend thing, I asked, it was a joke. She thought it would be funny, and she made some money in the process.

“Now if that was Real Riza who looked exactly the same itd be cool but that chick is creepy “

Due to the meaning of this sentence being obscured by the incorrect language usage, I can only venture a guess at the meaning. If I understand it correctly, it is truly one of the finer examples of bigotry to come out of this place yet. Are you saying that if Riza actually wore it, it would be okay, but because this girl invented it it’s not okay? Wow, this place really is full of extremist fanatics.

“can you believe that? come on, girl, just give up the hawkeye cosplaying... first orangehair!hawkeye and now this? at least if you're going to do a variation of the costume, make it an in-character one…”

Judging by the discriminative nature of this forum, I doubt an “in character” adaptation of the outfit would have amended your preconceived mind set about her cosplay anyway. Besides, according to the link you posted, it was for a masquerade ball gown contest.

I’m mainly posting this to show a diversity of opinion. It seems the majority of people here would rather jump onto the bigotry bandwagon than to seem out of place by stating something contrary.

...feel better now? jeez. the whole point of this topic was that the girl was selling someone else's character on eBay as an imaginary girlfriend...which i can't imagine is legal in the first place...but more than anything else is just degrading to women in general, be they real or 2dimensional. the fact that it was not a very good cosplay on top of that made it even more laughable. she didn't pay very good attention to the detailing of the costume [the stripes on the shoulders are too big and the wrong color, the flap on the front is too small, the undershirt is the wrong color, the braided cord on the shoulder is...a strip of ribbon?], her hair is entirely the wrong color and not even the right style, and she's wearing a wristwatch and neckalace that are plainly visible.

the point of a cosplay is to look like the character, right? this girl didn't even really try that hard. she could have done a lot more with it, and maybe then it wouldn't have been such a travesty to see someone claiming to be a character.

and the ballgown bash was just a rebuttal of how absurd her technique is. as if classy, refined riza hawkeye would ever wear a ballgown that looked like her uniform. rolleyes.gif

those pictures you posted? several of those costumes were considerably better than this girl's. she may be a very nice girl...and that's fine. she's just not a very good riza cosplayer, is all we were saying.

edit: not that i ever would...but if you're gonna sell a character on eBay as an imaginary girlfriend? do it like this. or this. at least put a little more effort into the costume. XD i worked my ass off to make that costume, i dyed my own hair, and i even got a hayate plush. yes...i am a snobby cosplayer...but i don't cosplay a character i'm not confident i can pull off.

Wow, that whole thing is disturbing. **Is currently really thankfull her friends didn't put her up for sale like they had said.)
Uh yea, I dye my hair a lot and I find it kinda hard to mess up a dye job that badly unless it was on purpose.

didnt knew there was actually an anime pimp around these days...

this looks better, here you can buy yourself a fully costumized military suit, so it will always fit if you just give the right measures and they will make it for ya.
