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.....

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.
Well, what I meant is, if you have the figure suited for the character you'd like to cosplay as, then it's absolutely fine.

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.
Thanks, but I like my eyes where they are.
