cosplay

Hi,

I'm planning to cosplay at the NADWcon. This will be my first time, both going to a convention and cosplaying. However, I want to take full-part in the convention and not just be a lurker.

I've found a page that pretty much shows now to not do cosplay.

Although, I think the pink-haired kitty isn't too bad...

Yes. Japanese word, short for costume play, anime-related. Usually involves sexy young women dressing up as French maids etc. There are cafes in Akihabara where Otaku (men who like looking at nubile young women dressed in skimpy French maid costumes etc) go and have a good ogle. 8)

Ah, now... you didn't actually read the webpage, did you? Were you too busy looking at the girl dressed in nothing but feathers and pink hair?

unrealitymag.com wrote:For those that need a refresher course:

Cosplay short for “costume play,” is a type of performance art whose participants outfit themselves, with often-elaborate costumes and accessories, as a specific character or idea. Characters are usually sourced in various Japanese and East Asian media, including manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, and fantasy movies.

Darn it - you caught me out! :oops: :lol:

So what or who are you thinking of going as?

I know that at the DW events I've been to the costumes tend to vary considerably.

Here for example is some of the Hogfather's Helpers humiliating me. :lol:

This guy is wearing an incredible Detritus costume.

And here's Butcher as seen in The Last Hero. :lol:

Where are all the young ladies fawning over Butcher?

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

If Butcher is coming to NADWCon I wonder how he is going to get that past security?

:shock:
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?

Cosplay is a Japanese word which has a lot of sexual innuendo attached to it. Cosplay is all about titilation. It's all about young girls wearing sexy clothes copying characters from anime. Fancy dress is not cosplay. Fancy dress doesn't have restrictions on size, weight and age.

Here is an example of cosplay.

She's covered in it, but you can't see it because it's not dark! 8)
