No offense, but I purely do not understand the purpose of cosplay. I truly hate the insult that it puts on the real characters. I've seen Edward turned into a fat fourteen year old girl before. It's sad and depressing those sort of people would even try... I mean Halloween is fine... but I mean CONVENTIONS?!?!? I mean go ahead and do it for fun. But you can't look like a character. It doesn't work like that! Who here aggrees?
........ Well, I still don't like it. even though no one posted. Please post sometime.....

I don't mind cosplay. I'd actually like to try it, if only once. Like most people already mentioned, it's terrible cosplay that irritates me. Like those overweight Tifas and Rikkus (FFX, not Kingdom Hearts) all over the place. They're sick.
Not to be rude, but I don't know if it's apparent to them that they obviously do not look anything like the characters on a physical level. The least they can do is have some courtesy and cover up.
If you've got the figure, go right ahead and do whatever you want, but when you're 200 lbs and you've squeezed yourself into something that would even look big on me, then you've really crossed the line.
Either way, I'm moving this over to Spam Central, in case any more bashing goes on.
