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.....

Yeah. There's something about not only the quality of Japanese cosplay, but about their features that make them look strikingly similar to the characters.
Like a Japanese girl I saw cosplay Naruto. It was so cool. And there was also a woman I saw playing Kakashi Sensei. (She even had a Sharingan contact lens) I guess it's just natural that anime style would adapt from life, and thus, inversely, Japanese appear closer to the characters they design.
