TOPIC: Why so many people choose the wrong cosplay?

Why so many people choose the wrong cosplay? 4 years 2 weeks ago #1140

It is mind boggling:
Short people cosplaying elves
Skinny guys in armors
Fat dudes trying to be Bane
Sad fat girls in bikini cosplay or worse cosplaying sexy characters and it makes me puke
Almost as much as tall hobbits!

Get a mirror and cosplay accordingly!

WOW! WOW! WOW!
Are you sure you wanna talk about this?!
I;m surprised someone your age isn't more body positive! Cosplay is a hobby and therefore for everyone to enjoy, to get to be their favorite character for a day ...
Why are you so body judgmental?!

I agrre to disagree (hah allways wanted to say and type this :silly: ) with Furiosana..
maybe im not competent to argue on this but after only two mediocre costumes that I made for events,I can surely point out the flaw on this remark
Skinny guys in armors

I admire the tenacity of some skillfull individuals on cosplay scene that in spite their flaw they still are making huge amount of success like the Mick Ignis from Cinema make up school. I do NOT represent them,I worship them :evil:



and his flawless speech NERD ALERT

I would agree wit FuriosAna to the point. Not because I see any body as offensive or wrong... It is unconvincing to me when a tall skinny person is cosplaying dwarf and it is also unconvincing when a fat person is cosplaying hot game character...
the point of cosplay is creativity and fun, but there is a cosplay for every body type. Choose wisely and be convincing...

Almoust off topic answer to all your dillemas. Im gonna be short and use few Idioms ok?

As for body type and sizes, its simple. Dont mix frogs & grandmothers Whats the fuss?! Its obvious right?
Also I cant be so rude and not to mention other side of medal You cant judge a book by its cover. becouse even if you are mutated 6.foot dwarf, carry yourself with dignity and customised costume, beside showmanship.

Ah, you people obsessed with body positivity :) Not everyone is beautiful and no amount of fancy wording and layering in expressions is gong to change that :evil:

I completely agree Ana!
I'm fat... I know I'm fat... I don't pretend that any amount of costuming will make me not fat.

Being painfully aware of this fact, the few times I got into costume and went to conventions or masquerade parties I would either: A) dress up as someone fat so that my body matches the character I'm imitating or B) dress up as whoever the hell I want (even though I don't match their physique and look more like the washed up, middle aged, overweight version of said character) but then not be phased by the looks or comments I would get... because I would be doing it for myself and no one else!

I have nothing against people not giving a shit and cosplaying a petite anime character even though they look more like Shamu the whale. As long as they are aware that their "interpretation" of the character is wildly off the mark and that people will usually say so. I hate people who parade their body around in costumes (and so, willingly expose themselves to other people's judgement) but then get offended when someone calls them fat even though they objectively are fat. If you are gonna expose yourself like that either be chill, relaxed and don't take yourself (and other peoples opinions) too seriously, or just toughen up, get thick skin and take it all in stride.
Beauty is subjective, not objective, so it can't be measured by any generalized, politically correct standard. A couple of centuries ago being fat was considered attractive... now? It isn't... in the future? Who knows!

In the meantime...

I respectfully disagree Rathamon.
First of all, almost any "interpretation" of a character, as you call it, is wildly off the mark. Especially when it comes to anime characters. No matter how skinny or buff you are, hardly anyone can match the pencil thin waists, big breasts or general physique of female anime characters, or the unnaturally muscled builds of most male video game characters.
Secondly, just because you think someone is fat or ugly or doesn't fit with your view of how a character should look like doesn't mean you have to say it and ridicule them. I'm not saying you shouldn't be allowed to, but voicing such hurtful opinions just because you can is simply bad manners. Running around the street randomly swearing at people is not illegal and is completely within your rights but you still don't do it because it's douchey.

Besides, what if you don't have any overweight characters that you personally like and want to cosplay? What if you only like anime characters that are thin and you are not? What if you like only big muscled characters but you yourself are scrawny?
Why should you have to hear malicious and hurtful things just because you are enjoying your hobby the way you like?
Sure, you can tell people to ignore those comments and take it in stride, but isn't that a backward way of thinking? Isn't it more logical to tell people to be polite and not say rude things (even though they have every right to think those things), than it is to tell people not to be offended by someone's mean comment?
