This is proven by most westerners who Cosplay are prefer to imitate Asians Anime/Asian characters and not their own cartoon/western characters which can be seen at their western Cosplay websites such as www.cosplay.com . As for us Asians almost all of Asians who Cosplay are prefer to imitate Asians own Anime/Asian characters which can be seen at Asian Cosplay websites such as http://curecos.com

What do you all think about this?

That doesn't prove anything.

Anime/Manga characters are typically designed to be a "cartoony" or "simplified" version of a "stereotypical" "asian", with their hairstyle, outfits, facial details, and personalities being what defines them.

Cosplayers don't try to "Look asian", they try to imitate the look of the character they're cosplaying as.

Quotes because I know I'm not being politically correct but can't be arsed to google.

Imitating Anime/Asian characters = imitating Asians because Anime/Asian characters made by Asians based on Asians.

Way to be a douche bag racist. Yes I said racist since you are proclaiming a certain race is superior to others, which is the textbook definition of a racist. I'm Asian and i don't think any race is more attractive than another. Get a clue and stop jerking your own ego

Rather there is a total lack of logic. The art style simply works well with cosplaying, if cosplayers would try to imitate asians they would do very different stuff as well. And either way, lots of anime chars aren't that asian in the first place

I question it... I've been to a number of cons and do believe that local or american character cosplay often far exceeds most Asian ones... especially any event that pushes "cult fiction" and "sci-fi" into it's agenda beyond just "anime". I've even seen Warhammer cosplay... though most cosplay I've seen tends towards American film and British sci-fi... Doctor Who is a really REALLY popular one. Simply put, the imported anime/manga culture is merely a niche.

Honestly I believe that, at least locally, and I believe this is true for america too, each nation's personal comic book, cult fiction, sci-fi scene is far greater than the Asian import, at least from my experience. I know more fans of Marvel, DC and locally produced comics than I do manga fans, outside of the internet... and vice-versa otherwise.

As someone who is going to cosplay, I don't try to look Asian at all. As said by a previous post I'm trying to look like the character. 2 of the characters I'll be cosplaying aren't even Asian.

If Anime characters are not based on Asians then why almost all Anime fans prefer Asian cosplayers while hate western cosplayers? http://antiwesterncosplayers.blogspot.com/2013/02/evidence-of-anime-fans-hate-western.html

And did you know Japanese find westerners to be unattractive? The reason western games not sell well in Japan is the same reason why western cartoon not sell well in Japan because western games and cartoon characters which made by westerners based on themselves are not cute, while Japanese prefer cuteness and also believe westerners are not cute. Another evidences of this are :
- Japanese prefer to Cosplay Anime/Asian characters and not cartoon/western characters.
- Japanese not choosing any westerners to form the sister group for AKB48 and instead choosing other Asians such as Indonesian and Chinese.
- Dolls, action figures and other figurines that are based on westerners are also not sell well in Japan.
- Etc

Thought this was going to be about all those ugly American unimportant characters that often appear on some Anime eps, but what you're talking about makes no sense.

Cosplaying is primarily an Asian phenomenon, so it's natural that Asians would excel at it the most. Cosplaying though is not strictly just for Asians you know. Yes they can do it way better than majority of Westerners but all that matters is that they're enjoying themselves. Also, anime characters look nothing like Asians, they may be based off from them but as far as looks go, they can be mistaken as Westerners too. I've watched many anime that had a decent amount of foreigners in there from Europe, England, Germany, America yet they looked exactly like the Japanese/Koreans/Asians in the show.

Plus Western characters you can't exactly cosplay. We have super heroes like Batman, Superman, Robin and so on but that's about it. Western t.v does not show decent cartoons to the point where we'd wish to cosplay as them. The shows are now all stupid and simple minded.
