A simple note:

If you want to cosplay (Let's say...) ManKoto, you must look like him. If you tried to cosplay ManKoto but you looked like Naruto, I'll kill you.

Those who hate cosplay USUALLY a fatty or a blacky, you should be suspicious to anyone who hate cosplay as either a fatty or blacky. They hate cosplay since they can't cosplay many Anime characters unless they want to end messed up becuase only a super very few fatty and blacky Anime characters, I can name 2 of them Chouji and Mr. Popo.


what do you mean,im fat/black?Goodness.I hate cosplay because,i hate it.I bet you look dumb when you cosplay.

1. The body - We don't want to see overweight people dressing as our favorite charaters, you are inviting to get jump. Lose those excessive weight and do a self make over. (gel your hair, make ups, spary axe, do a moon walk and get a nose surgery.) You may still be ugly and your nose might fall off, but have some confidence in yourself.
2. The detail - Sure, a box over your head with the letters GUNDAM written on it is easy and epic, but try to be unique as your cosplay can be easily copied. Work on every small detail, master the technique of sewing, forge the costum with your heart so you can laugh at other's cheap and common costums.
3. The charaters - Know who you cosplaying, this is the most basic and important. If you cosplaying a certain charater just because they look "cool", becareful what will happen to you when you show yourself in general public. A number of possible event might happen: 1) Get tentacle rape. 2) Get tentacle rape. 3) Get tentacle rape. Always check on the charater's background, criminal record and identity. Or in other words, make sure to keep the charaters you cosplaying PG -13. Unless you are some kind of sicko, then it is totally acceptable.

yo.

cosplay is not a serious business from the beginning.
its just making the person HAPPY when he/she cosplay his/her fave anime/manga character...
of course, if you really want to take it SERIOUSLY, then why not? right?
do what makes you happy.

thats all.

PEACE ^____^

Try to cosplay as Gino's Tristan, or Anya's Mordred.
Btw, they're mechas. I'll be proud of you if you make it.
If you could smile a smile, a standing ovation.


And oh, I'm not into cosplaying.

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


My god sir, there is no need to state the obvious. I can't believe I read through that, all that was mentioned were obvious points when deciding to cosplay. Common sense would make you realize this.


lol same i am surprised my self that i even bothered to read this...(even though i have 2 exams tomorrow) but you clearly have no point or making other "non Asians" not cos playing anime/manga characters...it is not your choice to make for them. cosplaying is to enjoy and share your interests and hobbies with other fans, NOT to make a copy of a person from a drawing.....
