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.....

MUST. RANT. TOO.
Cosplayers... they're nice people, I'm sure... but some of them are just so clueless! Either their costume is completely lazy... I've seen an Ed cosplayer who wore a red sweatshirt with the symbol on the back. Really? A sweatshirt???
..And then there's the Winry cosplayers who do NOT have her figure!! Don't mean to be rude at all, but I found this one girl on devart... she had quite a gut and some bad stretch marks. However, she decided to wear Winry's most revealing costume. Now, I can understand if an overweight girl really admires Winry and wants to cosplay her.. but there are other outfits Winry wears that you can choose from. So why choose the MOST unflattering one?! It drives me nuts!
Anyway, most of the FMA military uniforms I've seen have been fairly decent... although sometimes the weird colors throw me off.
But god..... Sailor Bubba, anyone? And nearly EVERY Inuyasha cosplay I've ever seen has been horrible. *shudders* I'm not even an Inuyasha fan.. but gosh. I at least know what the characters look like, since I used to be a fan!
