Cosplay Nightmare

The best and worst of cosplay.
Seriously i think most Americans SHOULD NOT EVEN TRY TO COSPLAY.
This goes the same to Malaysian cosplayers.

JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DOESNT MEAN YOU SHOULD

Well i don't agree with this article ! I think cosplay is not an attempt to look perfectly like the character your love, cosplay is made by fan so the aim is to feel like your favourite charachter, it's a kind of role play. Of course there are cosplay contests but not everyone in convention take parts in these. When you love very much a anime character you don't need very much to feel like him.It doesn't matter if you are physically different from him.

Ohmygod, you're like my new best friend right now. I was looking through google images trying to show my friend the big difference on people who cosplay with effort and people who just buy shit from wal mart and disappoint so badly. I was being a little mean by just saying most American cosplayers always make the characters look like junk and should just stop already while Japanese cosplayers put real effort and detail into their costumes. I mean, I'll give props to SOME because I have seen SOME but not many. It is all for fun and it's cool, but criticism comes from everything I guess. You gave me exactly what I was looking for, ohmylord, thankyouthankyou.

Honestly, cosplaying is just about having fun and enjoying yourself while you're someone else for a day. And there's quite a few good American cosplayers out there, you just have to find the good ones. ^^ I'm American and I put effort into my cosplay. :) Then again I've just started so... ^^;

I was looking for good and bad cosplay and I found it... but I disagree that all American cosplay fails. Sure, a lot of it does, but that doesn't mean everyone is such a hopeless failure!

Yuki Fuyuzaki said...

dude. not every american cosplayer is like this.
these are really bad cosplayers yes, but not everyone is like that. i respect your opinion, yet i disagree to the fullest. sure, japanese people can have really good costumes, but there ARE bad costume in japan too. its just that they have professional cosplayers who put pics up on the internet, while america does not. you cant just tell people not to do something because a lot of them are bad.

dont judge american's for some of the bad cosplay's that they do
my coplays were terrible at my first con, and that happens A LOT, but that doesn't mean we should just quit, japanese people have bad cosplays, and the good ones are most likely bought, not detailed

Kiriati said...

Personally I think that you shouldn't judge other people's cosplays just because a couple of people didn't put a lot of effort into it. I've seen lots of amazing cosplays by lots of different people and I stand by my logic that if you have the time and motivation you can become any character you want.

I understand that sometimes when cosplayers did not put enuf effort towards their cosplay and came out just like the gundam pic above, it feels like they are insulting the character, but just like M.Noel said, it's all about enjoying yourself and doing the character you love best for once, in the end no matter how much you try, you can't be 100% a like with that character, but as long as you put enough effort, I think it's worth trying right?

( sorry i deleted the msg above, had several errors)

triger87 said...

He wrote MOST american cosplayers are shit and hes right noobs! And like 3 ppl come like oh noez not every american is shit they are like 1-2 good bla bla.. read pls.
And M.Noel what the hell are you talking about? Your propably so ugly and fat and what not that even if you spand 10k dollars on the cosplay you wont look like the anime caracter you want to cosplay.

shiako said...

I think the Gundam cosplay is win (◔ヮ◔)

Shadoe Flame said...

I don't really understand what you're saying Triger >.> Nor do I really understand why people put others down so harshly. Cosplay is made of the words Costume and Play. Don't you think its more fun just to have fun than be an asshole just because someone else didn't do such a hot job on their costume?

Anyway, I'm an american cosplayer. I also have a LOT of pictures of american cosplayers at the conventions i go to that have such AWESOME costumes and the ratio of ppl with good to bad costumes would be 90% put genuine effort into them! Anyway, I don't think I'll ever understand why some people think that just because we aren't the same race that there should be hate and we can't do the same things as other races. I bring up races because thats exactly what you guys are doing. Now, before I start really pissing people off I'm going to leave ^_^ thanks for those who agree with me and those who don't can just piss off for all i care ^_^ I've seen this argument in so many places and i don't really think those cosplayers who cosplay "badly" care even... gah i rant lolz

Ok so lets see here your basicly saying that only Asian's can cosplay because they can fit into the Chr.s both looks and body.
Holy Fuck whoever thinks this should go to hell.
NO ONES PERFECT YOU DIP SHIT.
My BFF does not have the best body
Shes 180 pounds and she cosplay's as Lucy from fairy tail ALL THE TIME and she made it herself.
she didn't buy it or anything like that.
It mite not me the best costume but shes getting better at making them.
The first pic that i saw on this, the chick that was supposedly a Fail isn't if your saying she FAILED at it because she doesn't have the right body NO its probably because her costume is a W.I.P or shes just beginning to make them.
Cosplay is just about having FUN with or even without your friends.
ANYONE CAN COSPLAY AND ANYONE WILL.
SOMEONE SAID "Cosplay is a privilege not a right".
ITS A MOTHER FUCKING RIGHT TO COSPLAY NOT A FUCKING PRIVILEGE YOU COULD MAKE A ENGLAND COSPLAY OUT OF SOME OLD CLOTHES. (not the uniform of course)
IF YOU ARE BRINGING PEOPLE DOWN SAYING "Lose some pounds and get better at making your cosplay costume then you can cosplay" OR "your body and face make this cosplay look bad, you'll never be able to cosplay".
FUCK THAT, NOT EVERYONE HAS THE PERFECT BODY OR FACE TO PULL IT FULLY OFF.
YOUR PROBABLY A WORTHLESS GOOD FOR NOTHING 300 POUND FAT ASS, NERD ON A COMPUTER SAYING THESE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE CANT COSPLAY.
FUCK YOU, GO FUCK YOURSELF IN THE ASS AND GO FUCK YOUR LIFE.
YOU KNOW WHY..........BECAUSE YOUR NOTHING.
