Oh before those fatty or blacky start saying I'm a cosplay maniac for making the 4th cosplay related topic, stop being jealous over someone who can cosplay well because they are not a fatty or a blacky because they can cosplay plenty Anime characters because there are super very few fatty or blacky Anime characters.

This is a racist comment. I'm proud to be Asian but not to the point that I would degrade other race. Frankly speaking you are one of the people that is a disgrace to Asia. You call people fatty and blacky when you yourself has a dark complexion and you sir are really ugly for that comment.

You think Cosplaying is a way to show the world that Asians are superior because they can act out or dress up an anime character better? That Cosplaying is only worth doing by Asians, then you are dumb sir. Cosplaying is for everyone, not being limited to race. You sir are just too full of yourself mumbling about how you are a great Asian wherein in fact you are a disgrace to our race and a shame to Asia. Also you should know that Cosplaying does not disrespect anyone.


KHEMIA is right this a stupid racist comment!
sigh... Hey (proudasian) did u just make this thread so you can express ur self as a PROUD ASIAN?
guess what im ASAIN TOO and I'M ALSO PROUD that I'M an ASIAN! but I'M not LIKE you who degrade/racist other races just to show how proud I AM! >.< grow up KID

We'll take this point by point.

- I don't know where you got you 2% statistic from, but NO ONE COSPLAYS AS A VILLAGER. No one dresses up as "Student C." Therefore, your statistic is horribly skewed (if even correct at all) in relation to cosplaying, the subject matter of this topic.

- NO ONE HAS GIGANTIC EYES LIKE THAT. The person you replied to wasn't making the point for Western cosplayers, he was saying that anime characters aren't based off actual Asians.

- You are absolutely right, and therefore refute your earlier statement. THE BIG EYES ARE EXAGGERATED. The are an artistic style. And because they are an artistic style, gender generally does not factor in. If a mangaka makes big eyes on girls there's a good chance he'll make big eyes on boys.

- Once again, the person you're attacking is not saying that Westerners are the best suited for playing Asians. He's saying that anime characters don't look like real people. In anime, there are four generally held physical characteristics that show that a character is Western: hair color, eye color, facial features, and breast size.for women. In anime, these characteristics would be yellow, blue, large, and large. You are right that the same drawing style is used for Asian and foreign characters alike. However, NEITHER GROUP LOOKS LIKE ACTUAL PEOPLE.

- Of course most characters are BASED off Asians. If it's made by your people about your people, it's probably gonna reflect your people. "Cute and adorable" are judgment calls. How does that work out with buxom and beautiful women or giant men, anyway?

- Um...the only claim the Japanese have on an "anime" is a word and an association. Anime = animation. Everyone makes cartoon. Part of the allure of anime is that it's foreign, anyway. And, believe it or not, I don't think anyone is really hoping for a sudden call from somewhere in Asia informing him that he is needed for an important cosplay position. Much of the joy of cosplay is becoming someone you aren't, more specifically something you aren't. People dress up like Sasuke from Naruto, not Tenma Kenzo from Monster. Why? Because one is a ninja and one is a doctor. We aren't mass mailing anyone in Japan in an attempt to throw more Pete Pumps into the world of anime.

- What does that have to do with anything? Good job, you have diversity. Unfortunately, anime comes from Japan, right? Then why are you throwing in other Asians? Don't tell me that Westerners don't make anime when you also seem to claim that it is the intellectual property of Japan. If it isn't, then Westerners make plenty of anime, too. You either have to concede that anyone and everyone makes anime or that your listing of other Asians (outside Japanese) is a moot point.

- Dreaming? Believe it or not, the origin of the work does not keep people from cosplaying. In fact, it is for this reason that many people like to cosplay. It builds a sense of separate community when we join together in an act that is not part of our generally accepted culture. You're right. We dream about anime, about being in anime. But we are NOT crying in our beds because THERE ARE A LOT OF JAPANESE PEOPLE IN JAPANESE ANIME.

- Just in case you didn't know, we Westerners have a long and diverse history of dressing up as iconic cartoon characters (once again, ANIME/MANGA = CARTOON/COMIC). Ever heard of Spiderman, Superman, or Batman? The reason why we don't dress up as our own characters so much is that they are too familiar, both in origin and subject matter.

I think that we consider Japanese people as better cosplayers for several reasons: origin bias, time, talent, and treasure invested, and the fact that both the subject matter and the people cosplaying are foreign. If we attempt to bring anime too close to home, it becomes even stranger to us.

EDIT: I just read your profile page. I don't know if you're an idiot or making a joke. Ah, who cares...

So, Americans aren't allowed to dress like their favorite characters, because Asians did it first?
I've seen some REALLY shitty asian cosplayers.

Just because someone cosplays, that doesn't mean that they wish they were asian. they do it becasue they want to have fun and show their love for the ANIME, not ASIANS. Personally, I love anime and have for many years and would likely cosplay if I ever got the chance, but last thing I knew I was very happy with my diverse cultural background.

First of all Anime characters are based of Asian peoples [ notice why you keep seeing more and more peoples saying Asian Anime cosplayers are better or the best ] and cosplay is started or originated from Asia. I actually want to make this topic title as "Cosplayers are wannabe Asian?" but if I do that I will be generalizing because cosplay is not just about Anime cosplay but into many other stuff including video game, cartoon, artist, movie, etc.

What do you think?


1. I'm Asian + Japanese. yes truthfully i am >.>

wow....

just wow... i'm really really REALLY REALLY SHOCKED...

Even though I'm Japanese, I don't think I'm better than other races O.o

you sir/ma'am have a seriously messed up head.

and if you really don't believe me that I'm Japanese ->>>   張 さくらこ and if you can't read it, its "chou, sakurako"

can you plz change your um.. "perspective" amongst humans?

hmmm, lets keep this nice and simple...NO
;]
y wud u say that anime cosplayers are wannabe asian? who sed anime cosplayers have to be asian
i wud say that anime cosplay is a part of asian pride but allow making other ppl feel intimidated by excluding them from it just cz they're not from a certain race or nationality. i think anime cosplay should be open to EVERywun and think of it as their way of showing their appreciation towards asian art.
no hate, everywun has their own point of veiw XP
