I think it's strange to say that Asians are better since mostly both anime and manga have characthers which dosen't have any asian features at all. Just look at any anime, naruto, sasuke, sakura none of them have asian look seriously haven 't yet stumbled over an anime where the characthers have asian look. I think that the anime characther have more western features.

Yep...it sure depends on the person..that's why Asians are the most suitable for anime cosplays..Americans or other Countries no..but they could be good at other cosplays like harry potter or star wars as you said some posts up..no one is better than an Asian at anime cosplays..(i dont know much about cosplay but that's my opinion..)

If they (american) want to cosplay, i give them suggestion. They better cosplay as non-japanese like negi springfield,lelouch lamperouge or other more. That because they suitable to dress as english people.

Ah Hahahaha!!! It must be the amount of time spent into the costume, really if an American actually TOOK TIME into making their costume, dying the hair right, etc...and not buying the stuff on EBAY...it would probably turn out very good. Plus, not trying to be mean here but, if a very very overweight person tries to cosplay as a skinny anime character, it will look as stupid as can be...and pathetic.

It's funny how you equate being an "American" as a race in all of its own. Especially since Asians make up a good sum of the races that fall under the American nationality. And, really, that's all being an American is — a nationality, which is only useful in signifying which nation a particular individual belongs to.

Instead, I'm quite sure you meant Caucasians (i.e. white people). And, when you think about it that way, that makes your generalization really rather racist as I don't think white people even make up 50% of America. Regardless, I'm not going to discredit the OP or anyone else in this thread for their ignorance on this matter: I'm sure we all knew what was meant by the title of this thread and that no harm was meant by it.

On a related note, yes, white people in general do rather suck when it comes to cosplaying. It's true. Especially when that person is of a North American descent. However, I have seen some rather impressive cosplayers that weren't Asian, 'though I helps if the character they're cosplaying isn't an "anime/manga' character. Which is not to say that I haven't seen some horrendously bad Asian cosplayers, also, as there are in fact many. Like TwistedFlight pointed out and alluded to, your reference pics are piss poor as the Asian gentleman (I think?) in question is most assuredly a model, whereas the two individuals in the pic above it are, at the very least, amateurs.

P.S. I personally think German cosplayers take the cake when it comes to this sort of thing, especially since many of them are so freakin' androgynous. Even more so than Asians, if you can believe it.

its quite clearly depending on the person/effort. asians by far put more effort in because it is mainly their thing..
but you guys also have fat asian chicks trying to cosplay, its just the pictures you have in your mind and are comparing.

Ah hahahaha!! It must be that I simply state that fat people shouldn't cosplay, unless of course they're cosplaying someone who is...fat...and people who buy cheap costumes on ebay should think about making their own.
