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. smile.gif )

dry.gif 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? blink.gif

........ huh.gif Well, I still don't like it. even though no one posted. Please post sometime..... dry.gif

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. tongue.gif

That's a big cosplay pet peeve of mine, people who wear costumes they don't look good in. I could show you some pics that will make you claw your eyes out.

Or, people who do really half assed cosplay, such as all the Ed cosplayers who wear a red jacked with the flamel symbol on the back and nothing else and say "Look I'm Ed!"

QUOTE(toby-chan)
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.


Yes but you have to remember, when you see Japanese cosplayer with nice costumes nine times out of ten they bought their costumes since there are actual cosplay stores there. We don't have that here most of us have to make our own costumes or at the very least have them comissioned.

QUOTE(Toby-chan)
although it'll be snowing in hades if I ever manage a decent costume.


Don't say that! Pratice makes perfect.
