white ppl generally cant do good cosplays cause they dont have right skin color but AZN's have the right skin color


actually, i'd credit facial and bone structure more than skin color.

i think the main reason that western cosplay looks so much worse than azn is the different attitudes regarding it.

for american's its usually an "anything goes" attitude and typically just run off to either the goodwill or joanne's fabric to hack together a costume.

asians (as in those actually in asia) tend to spend an obscene amount of time and money working on it. they take it far more seriously than most westerners do, but i also think cosplay is little closer to hearts of the japanese. take a look at visual kei, gothic lolita fashion, and the whole harujuku/akiba thing. i wouldn't call it mainstream there, but it's a lot more popular. not that i want it to be popular here by any stretch of the imagination, as evidenced by many examples in this thread.

wonders if i am the only one on this thread that actually cosplays.
i think it's very mean and LAME to say such thing unless you actually cosplay.
i believe it is much easier for asians to cosplay and that you can't compare asain and american cosplay it's just not fair.
but just to post perfect asain cosplays and commit meanly to people who really cosplay when you don't cosplay yourself is just not right.
i have seen many wonderful and fantasic american cosplays that i don't think should be discarded like that.


for the record, i did cosplay once but only because my then girl friend made the costume and i went with a group. i was pretty new to anime at the time so i didn't know any better. i'm also aware the particular cosplayer i posted is an actual professional one, but i've seen amateurs do just as well.

hmm, i didn't mean for it too sound like all american cosplay sucks. i think the vast majority of american cosplay sucks, but there are certainly some good ones out there. however, for every quality cosplayer you see, there are an easy dozen who make you want to gauge your eyes out. (a small sampling have been posted in this thread)

it doesn't bother me too much at conventions (though it's still annoying when moo cows dress up as scantily clad anime girls), but these morons have a habit of taking it outside of the fandom (like walking around the mall in cosplay) and making the whole fandom look even fucking stupider than it already is (and gods know we don't need any help).

^regarding that up there no matter what it is Asians can cosplay better than westerners. For one Anime characters are tend to be Asian and look Asian....to a certain degree. Westerners have the find it and put it on idea while Asians tend to take their time looking for a good costume and try to look as much as the character as possible in honor for the character. By Asian I mean like people in Asia or Asian lifestyles not all Asians in particular. I love being Asian.....XDXDXD

That actually looks pretty good to me. Tasteful cosplay that keeps it simple and seems to be a good match for you physically.

I beg to differ. I've seen outstanding cosplays of Vash the Stampede and Spike Spiegel done by Americans. I've seen an Asian version, and they were horrid. I'll post pictures I took at AX as soon as I find the USB cable.


First of all you can be Asian and American at the same time since Americans are not a race, there a nationality. If you take two people who look like the same character, give them the same identical clothings as the character and everything else. You will see that the Asian cosplayer will fit the character more perfectly.
