Note from moderator: This is a safe-harbor thread where members can safely express negative opinions about cosplay without getting rebuttal from pro-cosplay fans.

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'm fairly indifferent to cosplay, I get that it's people's personal brand of fun and, well, different strokes for different folks. I just dislike the culture associated with cosplay. Certain people can be rude, as far as I know, and feel that them being "in character" is a justification for harassing or being obnoxious towards other people who aren't involved. Then there's entitlement and plain old popularity getting to people's heads. Then again, not everyone is like this, and you find these kinds of people everywhere.
