3 Main factors you should meet if you want to cosplay
Posted 9/22/08
They are :
- Deciding the character you want to cosplay -
Very advised to look for a character that resembles your face and body form. To make it easy for you to decide. Asian should stick with Anime/Manga and Asian video game characters because Anime/Manga and Asian video game characters suits Asian person facial and body form while non Asian should stick with Cartoon/Comic and non Asian video game characters because Cartoon/Comic and non Asian video game characters suits non Asian person facial and body form.
Non Asian person will not able to pull off Asian characters while Asian person will not able to pull off non Asian character so by trying to cross this rule will just make you below other cosplayers who stick to this rule, in the end you will only end in desperation because the cosplayers who stick to this rule will get better attention, admiration and even respect than you, you will even get mockery from many Anime fans because you ruin their favorite or loved Anime characters you were cosplayed.

- Practicing the character pose and face/body expression -
Make sure you learn about the character you want to cosplay, ANYTHING about that character including pose, face/body expression and style. Check this cosplay video http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/cj51S8L8vSA/ to know the importance of posing, see the Hinamori Momo girl on that video who start posing on time line 1:58 [ the girl with the red ribbon on her neck ]? She have to keep posing even the other girl on her right just doing less posing [ even thought it is part of her pose ].

- Preparing the costume/accessories -
Make is as detailed as possible, how to get a detailed costume? Go to a tailor while bringing as many as much of the character [ such as Anime character ] pictures, tell the tailor to measure you and make a costume like the one in the picture. If you are an all out person, be sure to check the tailor daily to see the progress so you can see if there is something wrong.
If you can't make certain accessories [ such as weapon or armor ] then it is best you ask someone else who are in expert for it. Cosplaying is not about you make the costume YOUR OWN self but it is about to dress and act to LOOK like the character. Costume is last important factor on cosplay because even your costume no 100% look identical or even if you are wearing deferent costume but if your facial and body form resemble the character you want to cosplay and you can do their pose and face/body expression then peoples will still know who you are cosplaying.

Very Important Note
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

Just another fact how you are a wannabe Asian for not having Asian pride since you said you are ashamed to be Asian, too bad really too bad that now anyone who enter this topic finally discover you are a wannabe Asian. You shuld check my profile to know what real Asian are.

I will stop dealing with the loser who wish he is an Asian , does not want to lose more cr points by making this topic out of its subject, besides I'm proud to be Asian so does not want anyone to stamp me as a loser too.

So how many cosplayers does CR have? Just me?
