Aren't they keep saying they Cosplay only for fun? If they really Cosplay for fun then they will not care they look like the Anime characters or not.

I don't know why we should care about this at all, really. Cosplaying is cosplaying- either do it for fun or do it and expect to look the best you can. It really depends on the person, and not every Western cosplayer is like that....

There is a set of plain weird people out there. Of cause.
But making an educated guess, I would think many cosplayers really put a lot of effort into their costumes. The goal is, of cause, to look like the anime character you want to cosplay. Criticism is likely not what you want to hear after all that effort (positiv criticism may be excluded).

Its a total different thing if we talk about body properties like facial features or the general shape of the body. There are people which only like what they are know and others that only like what they are not see every day. But in general you should not take people to serious that judge people by their physical appearance.

If western cosplayers said they Cosplay for fun but their action is the opposite such as being care they look like the characters or not then that will turn them as hypocrite.

They should just say they Cosplay to look like the characters.

You sound very angry, I think you've forgotten what anime is all about. its to have fun with cartoons filled with heart, ambition, emotion and comedy with other people. so some of them are of a different ethnicity, and some of them don’t have the "anime" cuteness, you really think western people should stop cosplaying? “No fun is allowed”


Oh, BTW I am Asian American and am ALWAYS teased because other kids say we Asians are all androgynous.

You used some really horrible examples for the western cosplayers. Western cosplayers can be just as good.

I feel like I'm reading a thread started by Chrome_mist because of that picture.

Did you try to find any good pictures of western cosplayers? 'Cause it looks quite the opposite, like you went out of your way to find not so great ones! So here are a couple of good ones for you to ponder, but from the sound of it you'll probably say this girl sucks too!





I've seen her for the past couple years at Sakura-con and I think she does a really good job! She's also really young but she tries her best and she seems to have fun with it! Isn't that what really matters? The one on the left as Amu is the same girl as the above picture of Taiga.

Those are ugly pictures of western girls cosplaying... Half are guys... WTF...
Asians just have a better market for buying cosplay outfits.
Otherwise western cosplay is just as good

First thing you do after a 1 year ban is go and make this topic? No. See you in 2014. Locked.
