Haha, fools! During that, the presenter looked kinda spaced out. some of those cosplays were so bad, it's funny. I'm glad there's no one in my Anime CLub which insists on cosplaying to the meets.


Thanks to DarkKanti for the Sig!

.... If that's what conventions are like, I'm keeping a 100 mile radius from them at all times.  Scary.  I mean, I like anime, but I don't like it enough to pretend to be a character.

I guess it takes all types, though...

O_O;;

*Adds this to his list of things never to do while cosplaying;

+Explain who the hell you are, if they don't know...they are better off not.
+Explain what I can do, once again, shame on them for not knowing
+Talk to the dude with the camera. You will end up on the web.
+Open my mouth.

The dude from Big O (the Andriod with the "golden gun that can like kill anything in one shoot") pissed me off, I am a Big O fan, and his self description of the Android was insulting...

My favorite was the 3rd Captain, because he knew what he was talking about, but it was to the perfectly wrong person.

Ah. That put a bit of a smile on my face. If I ever dressed up, I'd dress up as someone who doesn't suck. It'd be a costume that doesn't suck too. In general, I just wouldn't suck.

LMAO, nice SK.

That video was great. Some reasons why I would never cosplay because uh...it makes me look like an idiot.

And Dheu, you can come to a convention without cosplaying. I think it's a lot more fun dressing regularly and laughing at others as opposed to dressing like a retard and being laughed at.

I'll drink to that.  That Chopper chick looked pretty good to me.  The chick from Hellsing didn't look too bad either.  Most of the other girls scared me though...

My favorite was the black mage from Final Fantasy.  If I ever cosplayed, it would be as that.

"My power is basically to, well, set things on fire."  That was great.

Watching that just makes me realize what big dorks we all are when you really think about it.  But who cares, I cosplay at cons all the time (Wolfwood, Kuwabara, Amarao, Scar...)

I would agree. I started to explain Beck and Rozen Maiden to a friend today, and didn't realize she wasn't getting any of it until he just walked off.

This video makes me want to cosplay more (alas, I am still a cosplay virgin...) and be better then these guys! #_# As fore mentioned, I wouldn't open my mouth.

I swear to god if any of you cosplay when I'm at a con with you, I'm tearing off your costumes and urinating on them.

That was a nice video. I LOL'd.

Hmmm.  You know, when people have that violent a reaction against something, it usually means they do it themselves.

Admit it, Seven, you like to cosplay at home in front of a mirror.  Who do you dress up as?

You know it's gotta be a .Hack character.  I bet Sev was really the fat Kite from the beginning of the video.  XD

YOU GIYS R HURTNG MY FEELINGS.

/me cuts.

Actually, I'm disgusted by it. The most extravagant Halloween Costume I ever had was a traffic light, and even then I didn't paint my face.

I hate costumes in general.

But if I flew you out to Portland for a KumoriCon in the future because I am a nice guy like that and I cosplay as Roy Mustang [FMA] or Jun [Rozen Maiden, Jun-kun is now on my top ten fav character lists] would you really insult me by peeing on my costume? I would probably cry and summon one of of Bakuza [Bazaku...? Cosplaying group that is usually at KC] or one of KC's security Yojimbo to kick you a$$ in a dark alley, because that is how we roll in the NW (ask Dheu, we t'is the hard a$$ fos in the North West side, boi~!).

. . .

See what I mean, it is just easier NOT to open your mouth (or move your fingers).
