Cosplay and cosplay events have become more and more welcome by people around the world. People dress up themselves and try their best to get unforgettable memory and enjoy others at the same time. While there are always many unexpected things happened during the events. Today, we are going to share the voice that are from cosplayers, find what they have experienced and their expectations.
Murrlissa: The worst compliment I ever got when taking part in cosplay convention was this person telling me “You’re so hot I’m going to masturbate to this picture of you later” Anytime someone tries the you’re better than me I usually sideswip em with “thanks but honey you look so great! and its so awesome that we both love this character.” It usually gives them a bit of a confidence boost which everyone deserves if they try their darndest without ignoring that they complimented me but also not acknowledging that it was made a competition.
Rechael Hansen: No matter how good or bad a cosplayer is, if you are going to interact with them, my goal is to find something good or nice to say. Such as “I love the material you used, where did you get it” or “that wig is the perfect color” or “it’s always nice to see people cosplaying that particular character” or “what a great smile! you really fit the character’s bubbly personality”. There is ALWAYS something nice you could say and you make a lot more friends and inspire a lot of other people when you use kindness instead of superiority to speak to others. I love all the points in this article, having just come from Anime Expo in LA this weekend, I know a lot of people that could use this advice.
Natalie Orean: When I went to NYCC in 07 with my cousin, I was super excited because I was planning to go as L. I couldn’t get the wig in time, but I basically had everything else ready: Messy eye make up, big white sweater, baggy denim jeans. My hair was fairly long then so I just curled it and messed it up a little since I figured an L cosplayer would have a bit of a messy hairstyle to capture the essence of him not sleeping very often. A cosplayer told me I wasn’t L enough because of the wig, and needless to say, that totally ruins the experience for a first time con-goer. I hate those kinds of people.
Marta Loureiro: Sigh, I hate those sorts of people, honestly. I cosplayed Sona from League of Legends recently, and had some issues making her weapon, until I decided to give up because I wouldn’t be able to finish it in time for the cons. I’d say that around 10% of the people that came to speak with me were like “oh no, where’s your etwahl?” and some even made rude comments about me not carrying it, like “Sona isn’t Sona without her etwahl, so you suck”. It’s really uncomfortable, especially since I was already pissed with my own self about not being able to finish it in time.
