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. Pro-cosplay fans, please kindly refrain from making such rebuttal posts. (But, if you'd like to have "debate/discussion" on these topics, we can also open such "discussion" thread. )
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.....

Interesting thread. I must agree, most cosplayers, particularly American (Not trying to be prejudiced, but it's true. And I am one) just suck to the moon and back.

If you've got the figure, go right ahead and do whatever you want,
Not always necessarily true. You still need... skills. Like myself... well, I don't have much of a figure at all, but I do look anorexic enough to be from Demon Diary, although it'll be snowing in hades if I ever manage a decent costume.
I should just try doing minimalist cosplay. Wear all black, and keep a bag of simple props for any requested character. (Ie; flamel and attachable cowlick for Ed, stick-on scar for Kenshin, etc. )
