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.....

Oh God, cosplaying. Generally, I do have a problem with peopel who cosplay. And as it has been said onthis thread time and time again, I hate how people who do not resemble their character via body type, gender... or basically in any way at all end up cosplaying as a curious character.
Having a problem with someone because they put a costume on is pretty low. People cosplay because they enjoy it and they aren't forcing it on you. You may notice, it's not physically possible to really resemble any anime character, but some people put a lot of time and effort into making costumes and why should they be disliked for it?
And for those who rant about the wrong gender, remember who does the voice of Ed (in the original anime, not the dubbed).
