I'd like to point out that barring radical gene therapy, if you are genetically disposed to being overweight, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

Trust me on that part. I may be 6'2" and 275lbs, but I'm as strong and healthy as an ox. I'm just as big as one too.



On the other hand, those of you saying "just go for it":

Do you really want me doing rock lee or might guy?


Like Trini said, if it was what you wanted to do, then by all means. Personally, no, I wouldn't mind in the least bit, and I know many more who wouldn't mind as well. I've seen people the same size in much more revealing attire, and I thought they were just rockin'! xD If it's what you want to do, why should your body-type even matter? Is it true to the character, perhaps not, but honestly, how many cosplayers out there actually are?

That's my opinion at least.

Being predisposed to genetic obesity is rare, but many try to use it as an excuse for bad habits.
http://www.telegraph...-is-a-myth.html

If you are it's one thing, just SAYING that you are is something else. Don't fool yourselves.
For the most part, it's your choice.
Without testing for the genetic markers, we're just guessing... and usually we guess wrong.

Cosplay what you want. It's really none of our business.

First, would he prefer to do one over the other? Second, why can't he just get a wig for either Itachi or Russia?


He was doing it for me so he didn't care but he rather do Japan than Russia he has a complex against white people I dunno why cause he is part white himself

He doesn't like wigs he dyes his hair a lot so he's weird like that

Heck..I'm cosplaying as Yuna and I'm black. I honestly don't care what other people say about it. I'm there at ACen to HAVE FUN. I'm not gonna let one person say so and so about my outfit. Cosplaying is suppose to be a enjoyment, not a freaking popularity contest, GEEZ.

Heck yeah! You tell them! :D I agree. Doesn't matter your skin color or anything related. It's supposed to be fun. Your cosplay makes you, YOU. We're all at ACEN to have fun, not criticize each other because our cosplay isn't perfect or the color of our skin "alters" the costume.

I say you can cosplay what ever you want. If it was an issue with size, sex, or skin color, then that would limit a lot of people.

I mean there aren't to many ethnic anime characters, so does that mean i have to be chad, or pedro only?

or does that mean a small chested girl can't do Mai, or Yoruichi?

No!

damn it! if sailor bubba, and man fay can live in this otaku world, then so can any one else!

Also, on a side note about the "wear fitting cloths" part. this goes for every one, big or small. I rarely find a skinny girl with out a bit of a gut any ways. Also, the ones with out it can look kinda...dirty/nasty, because they feel they can wear very little for some reason. (acen has had a few like snj naruto, felicia from capcom puzzle fighter, or etc. if your not a porn star, it's probably best not to dress as one.). so tight cloths can look gross on a lot of people.

Sometimes i think people do it just for the hour they can get away with it, and hope 4chan, or some forums notices them.

This so much to that first paragraph. Muffin tops from you wearing too tight pants are not cute. Giving yourself quadboobs or a "loaf" because your shirt/bikini/whatever top is too tight is not cute. You don't have to have a porn star body to dress scantily, but your clothes better fit well enough to make it look like you do. As for the second paragraph/statement, you would think no one wants to be remembered on 4chan for something negative, but I wouldn't be surprised. :/

many a 4chan girl post ther pics, or take requests for attention.

I didn't mean u need a pornstar body, i just mean u don't need to dress that way if you aren't one.

That's exactly whant i mean, the muffin top can happen to any size girl, slim or not.

Also, if you dress as....let's say....leeloo, the bat girl from night stalkers, cammy from street fighter, or mai from fatal fury, then expect not to draw a crowd.

I never will understand why they get so mad at all the pics. Your half naked, in thin skin tight cloths, and there are a lot of guys around. Your also dressed as an anime character most guys find hot. What do you think will happen? do you really expect to be able to enjoy the con with out interruption when your chest is 90% visible, and your butt is covered by a small triangle.

I actually saw one cuss at people because she had such a big crowd around her, she could only walk like 3 feet before being asked for a pic.

I understand some people might like the character, such as cammy, but some characters like mai, or etc, are created with just smex in mind, and little character depth.

Just because you hate Hetalia doesn't mean you go all 4chan on me :lol:

I was asking because I wanted him to cosplay so and so (mentioned,) and he's like totally caucasian instead of being Japanese like the character :rolleyes: He wanted to do Itachi too so that's why I asked was this a good idea since he would have black hair instead of said colored haired like said character.

He can't go anymore because of current issues so this is kinda late :lol:

I think this, the whole idea on who to cosplay who, is due to people complaining about so and so cosplay not being by a hot Desu Cosplayer like if someone not Japanese does Miku because they are desu compared to a black thick girl doing Miku because it's not moe or cute enough.

I dunno I don't get people's minds I thought Man Bridget was cool but I know a lot of men was pissed off, especially one who hates all traps/Bridget period. (I think he has issues.)

Not me I rather just 'do' said anime character NAO or just write about it :lol: I mean I wanted one of my bfs to cosplay Maito Gai and I do Rock lee but he was totally against anything that was close to being hoy yay or even hinted at hoy yay, even though I was a girl or any character he disliked.

And it was fair play in terms of my bf because I was doing a Sengoku character for him<3

Interesting case in terms of this topic: A magazine published an article about Miku and this girl cosplayed Miku and she was of some weird decent. It's from Clash and she kinda has a 'triangle face' as dubbed by the people protesting.

Its hard for me to find anything to cosplay that flatters a 5'6 and 100++ girl (A lady never says her weight) so I mostly dress like a punk rocker or a collage student for the first 3 years because loose clothing hides all my flaws as well as dark colors make me look more slimming.

um.. i know this is off topic.... but I know plenty of woman, and a handful of men who created published "adult material" that do not dress like "porn stars"
most of them dress like everyone else.. you see them everyday while you are out..... trust me.....

Edit: a thought just came to mind, my boss's girlfriend cosplayed Tifa a few years back, and got a VERY rude comment from a fellow con-goer saying "TIFA ISNT BLACK!!!" now in my opinion that is one of the rudest and stupidest things to say to someone that is cosplaying and is kind of relevant to this topic. And when you think about it...most cosplays are of characters that are suppose to be japanese right? so why didnt she go to others saying "SO AND SO ISNT WHITE!!!" just thinking out loud...

That is extremely cruel! In my opinion cosplay is for fans to dress up as their favorite character, skin color and weight should not stop ANYONE from cosplaying who they want to cosplay as. I've been seeing a lot of cosplayers recently editing their skin tones with make up just to be accurate :( I admit, I've done this before too, but I finally realized that I shouldn't try to hide my skin tone due to trying to look exactly like a character.

Actually that's a good point. I think people think in terms of black and white when it comes to society or double standards. Like if you are a pervert you have to be a creeper or easy, especially if you are a girl.

I think this is why a lot of people don't attempt other cosplays due to jerks like that one guy with that Tifa cosplayer.

I agree. I also tried to edit my skin color to look more tanner for my Yoruichi cosplay. But then I realized I don't need it. So what if I'm pale? I mean I did recieve some comments that weren't "nice" but I told them "I'm not going to be changing myself for your perfect view of -insert cosplay here-."

Not me I rather just 'do' said anime character NAO or just write about it :lol: I mean I wanted one of my bfs to cosplay Maito Gai and I do Rock lee but he was totally against anything that was close to being hoy yay or even hinted at hoy yay, even though I was a girl or any character he disliked.

And it was fair play in terms of my bf because I was doing a Sengoku character for him<3

Interesting case in terms of this topic: A magazine published an article about Miku and this girl cosplayed Miku and she was of some weird decent. It's from Clash and she kinda has a 'triangle face' as dubbed by the people protesting.

Her name is Rila. Her triangle face is crazy, but I find her very pretty.
Acen 2011: I lost my red kodak camera. If you found it, PLEASE contact me. I really miss it.

that is what i meant before. i think in some peoples heads, they want to see the perfect real life version of the anime character for mental thought later. when it's not, they mock them.

Yup. XD Wasn't cosplay just for having fun while being the character you love/admire?
