Firstly I think this girl doesn't have a grasp on what anime truly is. The big eyes, the small nose, the large boobs, sharp angular chins are characteristics of the art form and most of the time these features aren't even meant to represent a physical ideal. For instance the "large eyes" are usually found on innocent "pure hearted" characters. The physically convey they person's openness and trustworthiness. In contrast narrow eyed characters are usually less trustworthy, or more distant in character and nature. Same goes for angular chins. A more round oval face is more inviting, the sharp angles in the face can elude to a harsh personality. Even in the cases where the features are there for the purpose of portraying a physical ideal (such as large breast or large hips) they are almost always done as an extreme exaggeration. Anime in and of itself is about the exaggeration, the off the wall story lines, the fantastical characters and their features; these elements are what make anime so unique and so entertaining. Anime does many things, it conveys morals, human relationships, humor, horror, and explores the many facets of being human. What it does NOT do however is try to stick to reality and expectations of the "real world."

That being said I'm going to be very blunt in my next statement. I find her absolutely hideous. I find her desire to look like an anime character bizarre. Imagine someone going up to a Dali and saying to themselves, "I want to look like that." It's the same level of bizarre. Your taking an abstract image that is not human and slicing and dicing your body till it fits a mold it was never intended to in the first place. Coloring your hair, putting on eye makeup, cosplaying, that's one thing but to permanently alter your body in such a way is horrible and sad. I love cosplay but I don't do it because I find whatever character I choose to be a physical ideal but rather I cosplay because I want to celebrate that character and that anime.


The fluency with which you responded is amazing! I was going to post similar ideas, but you have already expressed similar thoughts in a much better way than I ever could have. Kudos to you! +1 and all that jazz!

To each their own. I'm a firm believe that everyone should be able to do with their body what they want. That being said, I'm not a fan of the look. But I won't disrespect her right to do what she wants with her body just because I don't enjoy looking at her.

Does she melt on an open fire like in the Black Hole Sun video?

If so, I've got a lighter.

Did anyone else notice her almost non existence waist? She must have pulled that corset pretty tight.

to summarize this thread...
anime character facial and body structures does not translate well into reality

just stick with regular anime cosplay folks!
