^ ... is that a real cosplay or is it an edited picture of Mr. Obama?
Btw i am right in guessing you are Kotaku. Haha, a bit proud of myself.
It would be pretty cool if world leaders engaged in cosplay Honestly it could be a way to reach out to the youths, especially in cosplay-friendly Japan.
I guess this is a relevant topic... How open is your society to cosplay? Do cosplayers get stared at if they walk through the streets in costume?
Over here, we have cosplay conventions like twice a year I think, which I think is pretty good for the cosplay community. I've also seen a Sasuke walking around town, which was funny He was getting stares but he just walked on. So I don't think we're that open to cosplay, but it's not entirely shunned either.
I saw... two akatsuki's using the metro
Though it be pretty funny to see politicians doing cosplay.
*imagining Angela Merkel as Sakura*
2 days ago, i saw someone, who looked identically like Shuujin from Bakuman... man, i looked at him, and i tought: WTF?!
Also, i'm pretty sure he didn't realized he was dressing like him. I'm not even sure he knows about something like Manga
So, what do you guys think about people who dress / look naturally like manga characters?
Heh, I was on the train back from coaching on the weekends during some convention or other, and there was a whole group of girls in black maid uniforms sitting there.
Hooollyy craap they looked so pro. It would have been weird to take a photo though.
And didn't Animea have Asuka's Seiyu come this year?
Wow, those are all interesting cosplay! I wish I can try it at least once. Actually cosplay community is pretty big in my hometown, as far as I know, but here in this new city I don't know much so I can't tell. ^^"
I really want to do cosplay too but it will be kinda hard since I can't afford the money for it... T__T
Cosplay community is big here... Recently I saw some cosplayers walking around in my campus... They took people's attention, especially the one who cosplayed as Kuuga (Kamen Rider Black, I guess?).
I want to cosplay as Victorique from Gosick someday.
Oh wow, I've always admired people who cosplay, but I don't think I could ever do it myself. Everyone looks so!! o(★▽★)o
Can't think of the word, but I think you know what I mean?
The cosplay community isn't that big around here unfortunately... or maybe I just don't know where they are (^^;;
