cosplaying is stupid for this reason. Even if some hot chick does it awesomely, theres a 21.37%chance they see these picture aswell and even if there is some cool cosplaying this is all that we see cause our minds have been tainted

cosplayers tend to either look flashy or plain old stupid. if they look decent then they don;t look like they are cosplaying.

and in the eyes of your typical commoner, different is bad. simple as that. they will never get you, but you can get them to not hate it is all.

i myself fall into the middle ground, i totally get it. but not likely i would ever cosplay. maybe dress up but not cosplay.

Because most white people can't do it.

I find it a little weird, but only if it's done wrong. Some cosplay's can look exceptionally awesome, but you get some people that mess it up real bad and it just doesn't work. I'd never cosplay myself, personally. At least not the full thing. I'd happily go to the MCM Expo with a Konoha headband and Kakashi's sharingan contacts. I wouldn't go any further than that and buy a jacket, mask, and tonnes of hair product and dye.

Haruka211, your cosplay stuff looks high standard and extremely awesome, so well done for that

As an adult, I can see the appeal of cosplaying, but as someone who has mouths to feed and people I'm responsible for, it's quite easy to see how it can be perceived as a waste of money.

However, everyone has hobbies and things that are a "waste" of money, so they shouldn't judge people for their hobbies.

I completely understand where you're coming from. Ive only cosplayed a few times (mostly on halloween and one convention a few years back)

I've asked my friend that was really into Sailor Moon (she does roleplay writing) to come cosplay with me and she yelled at me for being a freak!

That makes no sense to me! They shouldn't call you a freak!

You, sir, have hit the nail on the head. Well played.

There are just some things people dont all agree or see a point to.
For all we know, we may not even be into whatever they might see as a hobby or participate in.

Why do people like sports? I can't believe there are grown men who would waste money for their own equipment and membership with a team just to play games with other grown men. Smh.


Btw, serious post, I believe I see you on the Cosplay forums over there. I go by Kaellis on Gaia.

People think it's for freaks, they think when it looks bad it's disgusting...And allot of them say that it's only fine when hot chicks do it. Others might say it seems stupid to blow money on something just for attention (I do it for fun not attention...) I guess some people will never understand

This is something I do not understand, as I love to cosplay and I feel like I always will.

www.facebook.com/natsuocosplay

That is my cosplay page. I love to expand people's knowledge about the industry and I would love to see more cosplayers in Ohio, because none of my friends are cosplayers and I would love to have a cosplay buddy!



I could ask them what they enjoy and then point it out as being a complete waste of time, to grow up, etc etc.

Screw them and their narrow minded selfishness.

Hey don't sweat it. There are people who think that science is a waste of time.

Of course it depends on the character being portrayed, the dimensions of the person wearing the costume and the likeness of the costume to the original. I don't cosplay myself, but many I've seen have brought smiles to my face.
