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

You're free to have that opinion.

Personally though I actually have some level of respect for people who cosplay characters that they look nothing like. Most of the time they probably know that they don't really look like the character and they probably know that someone is going to voice to them that they don't like it.

So those people are actually kind of brave in a sense because I don't think I could bring myself to cosplay a character I look nothing like. I don't have the guts. Plus I just know that my effort into making/affording the costume will pay off more the more I look like the character. That's just a fact. I feel like I get more value out of my effort. The amount of compliments I've had on my Envy costume is really touching to me and I feel like it was worth everything I put into it, especially since I also totally adore Envy. 99.9% of the comments I've gotten about it have been positive. The negative comments I have received about it tend to be "Envy's not a girl." and "Envy's hair isn't black." and the people who say Envy's hair isn't black just honestly make themselves look like they don't know as much about FMA when they say that...since it is black in the manga, even on coloured pages. Either black or green is still correct in my opinion since he is given both those colours in different things. I do also have a green wig too anyway.

Anyway, although I am a girl...I really don't have womanly curves or large breasts or anything. So I can look fairly androgynous like Envy. Not to mention Envy isn't TRULY either specific gender....even though the form he normally takes is more male. Envy is also voiced by women in both Japanese series and also the dub of both series.

lmaorotflol; I know I'm contradicting myself by initially saying I don't mind the quality of the costume, but when it's felt... Oh God, that is absolutely horrible. Felt, IMO, is the worst type of "cloth" for any kind of clothing.


Well I used thick felt for both of my Envy wigs. I think it works really well for his hair actually....but I can't imagine wearing it as clothing either because I think that would feel quite uncomfortable actually. If people do it though I don't have a problem with it. I simply think it would be uncomfortable and it wouldn't be my choice.

EDIT:

Anyway I hope the mods don't see this as me making a 'rebuttle' post so to speak because I'm not bashing anyone for having a different opinion. It's just friendly discussion and I saw Chiyo make a similar post on the page before this and she's a mod.
