Well, I think that everyone has the right to cosplay, it's fun, and just because your American doesn't mean you can't look good =P

I think this is stupid. If they are good cosplayers I don't give a damn. Now about those really fat dudes cosplaying anime girls.... that's just wrong.

OK if you look good cosplaying fine no matter what race, sex, or where you live or anything els like that
guys should only cosplay as dudes and girls as girls fat people shouldn't casplay un less the anime character is fat
don't go and make a crappy costume because im getting pissed of all these people cosplaying as Eureka and Renton if u don't look good in it and your costume is not perfect or close i hope you get shot in the face with a missile launcher and that any remains are pissed on by a dog and then thrown in to a volcano not a joke
if you cosplay as a character you do it right because for ex: Renton is way cooler then you and its a privilege to even look like him understand and how about some originality i mean come on enough naruto and bleach characters there are thousands of anime chose something else

BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! AMERIKUNS ARE RUINING THE PRECIOUS ART OF COSPLAY!!! D:

Shut the fuck up. Let people cosplay as they please. Cosplay's meant to be for fun. Just because you come across poorly done cosplays that happen to be American, doesn't mean that Americans shouldn't be allowed to ever cosplay. Asians can also fail at cosplay, and I bet a lot of the super awesome asians cosplays you see online are shopped.

I think people should have the freedom to cosplay whatever the &"#@!% they want!
Any individual person (no matter their race! ) can end up doing a bad job of something, but if you are really a fan of a particular anime then I'd think your love of it should override the fact that perhaps some people didn't act it out right!

Like, just because I had seen a badly put-together play of 'Macbeth' at a college once it didn't make me love the book and plot any less! (And I certainly did not assume everybody at the college was a bad Shakespeare actor just because that particular play didn't turn out right )

Though I'm American, I'm totally uninterested in cosplaying and couldn't care less who does it. Too much of a touchy subject to further elaborate on.

Most of the members who vote no on this topic are obviously american, I'm sure I will get over 90% voters to agree with me if I made this forum on a neutral forum moreover on Japanese forum.

Anyway this are some good info, I will put it on the front :

Cosplay means/defined as dressing as CERTAIN characters such as when you cosplay Rukia from Bleach Anime or when you cosplay Metis from Person 3 FES video game, so cosplay not means/defined as dressing as RANDOM characters such as when you cosplay random soldier, pirate, or any random character with no name. That is why when you want to cosplay you have to do it accordingly and seriously. Don't be a selfish and ignorant person by saying cosplay is just for fun, think about millions Anime fans feeling when they see you ruin their favorite/loved Anime characters [ only if you do it terribly because of your selfishness and arrogance ], think about the Anime where those character come from because cosplaying are also like advertising the Anime where the Anime characters you are cosplaying, also think of the Asian feelings who worked hard make all of those Anime.
If you think it deeply by doing a terrible cosplay you also ruin the reputation of the peoples who are the same country as you and even the same peoples who are the same race as you. So if you want to cosplay then do it seriously or don't do it at all or you can just dressing as random characters that not come from any Anime, video game, movies or other form of entertainment that have fans/lover

This is stupid cause how the pictures are being compare. The american pictures are always ugly people being compare to japanese models. There is a lot of american models that will look HOT if they cosplay.

The Asian cosplayer picture you see not just Japanese but also other Asian like Korean, Chinese, etc. And they are not model also even IF they are model or not is not the problem, the problem is you look like the Anime character or not.


I am asian myself and I say that if you look hot whatever you are cosplaying you will look nice. I seen a lot of ugly asians as much as I seen ugly americans.

Another american with Asian fever, you wannabe Asian seriously need to realize that you are NOT an Asian unless you live in where I live or in where any Asian live in ASIA. Not to mention you must have 100% Asian blood aswell and not just half or this and that %.

I dont really care is they do as long as i dont see it...
it annoys me a lot if i do!!

TOO BAD, you will keep seeing them since they are known to have no shame to spread their pictures up like they are on a campaign to be a president

I really don't mind the fat american cosplay as our Anime characters only if they do it personally where no one see them.
