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 do kinda have to agree, Im not keen on cosplay, and people sorta randomly hitting each other like idiots trying to imitate characters moves is just weird to me, and when people look nothing like who they are trying to imitate its also a bit annoying, having said that though if the costume is really good and the person is like perfect for the role than cool (like that happens very often XD), but id like to see it in some kinda of theatre production with state of the art martial arts *looks blissfully* lol jks anyway im all ok for people having fun and stuff, on the whole I don't really care tbh, but I personally don't bother with it, I'd be waaaaaay too embarassed probably XD
