So I was told by 2 people yesterday on GaiaOnline that they do not like cosplaying and do not understand why people would waste their time and money on it.


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. :D


Running into eachother everywhere it seems!

What's not to get. It's basically modeling.

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 :(


yea I really hate the "only hot chicks can cosplay" attitude. REALLLYYY makes me mad. Who is anyone else to tell us that we can or cannot cosplay.

Because there's this feeling of "geekiness" attached to anime culture and cosplaying in general... so people like to frown upon things that they consider geeky...

The concept is the same as Halloween, but people don't frown on dressing up on Halloween because everyone does it and everyone thinks it's cool.

We all know we love dressing up, even adults love to dress up, but most people refuse to do it because they are scared of being shunned by society and people that they know.

I applaud you for doing what you love, and continuing to do so... it shows that you have individuality.

Everyone who likes to do cosplaying should simply do it. And if somebody does not like it they are free to look in a different direction.
Indeed not only "hot chicks" can do it (but I have to admit I love to see those^^) ...

That people should cosplay as whoever they want! They should'nt let stuff like not looking exactly like the character that they want to cosplay as because they're not the same ethnicity,size,or even gender as the character. Cosplaying is just a hobby that we cosplayers do for fun by representing our favorite characters from our favorite series! But some people just take it too seriously! This is not Disneyland! We're not getting paid to dress up and act like a character!

Speaking of cosplay as a career, just a couple of days ago I was reading an article about a girl who did an authentic looking cosplay for the new Bioshock infinite game and was hired as a cosplay model by the game's developer/publisher. The article made it seem like a special case, but if you are into modeling you never know which one of your costumes could get noticed. As well, if you make your own costumes that would make an excellent side business. I have seen some of the websites and the prices aren't entirely cheap.

I want to cosplay so badly I just don't have any money hahaha. But one reason why I think cosplay is not "pointless" is because you get to be your favorite character. I'm an actress and I love to play different roles so cosplaying as a character I love would be wonderful
