Welcome back! I've decided to give a lil' pause with the "Deviantards" mini-series, since there's a lot more to rant about than 12-year-old artist wannabes... XD
Oh, cosplay... it's such a double-edged sword. On one end, we got such well-made costumes... on the other end, some cosplayers look like they've came from the very depths of hell! Yes, there ARE good western cosplays, I'm well aware of that, and they're not THAT hard to find, either! But truth be told, there's still quite the difference between east and west, when it comes to dedication on cosplaying. And the fact that we see people cross-dressing, looking ridiculous ON PURPOSE doesn't help, either! Your friends might think it's funny, but for everyone else, you're just making a clown outta yourself... And believe it or not, that example was based on a real picture I happened to find! Yeah, I actually have SEEN a fat hairy guy dressed like Tifa! And it sure was NOT a pretty sight!
If you want to dress up like a fantasy character, go ahead... but you need to keep two things in mind:
1: Make sure the character suits you (or that YOU suit the character!)...
2: Don't be a slacker, and put some real work on that costume!
With this, seeya next time! ^^
