Sometimes I feel like I could be a more popular cosplayer and win online contests and stuff if I showed more skin, or at least some cleavage.
Then I realize, as fun as it would be to cosplay something crazy like Satsuki Kiryuin or Bayonetta, I’m not sure I’d want the sort of attention that it could bring in online communities. People are really nice and supportive at cons, but contest entry pages are filled with some vile shit sometimes.
I dunno, I just want to win tickets to a thing and wish that the criteria didn’t boil down to who has the bustiest cosplay selfie. :/
Baby, those sort of contests have always been like that, and they always will be. Just don’t worry about it. Free tickets are a nice thing, but I’ve been on the receiving end of the sort of attention you get from those sort of popularity contest type contests, and it’s exhausting. It’s like an actual job trying to advertise yourself out first of all, and the when it actually succeeds, sure it’s flattering at first, but it gets pretty old quite quickly, especially with the sort of comments you read about yourself (remind me to share with you the choice ones from the BBC America Halloween costume contest I was a finalist for sometime), and the minute you add exposed skin into it? Forget about it, the reddit and /r9k/ douchedicks just descend upon you if you become popular enough for them to catch wind of, and they are a particularly angry and belligerent brand of asshole that you do not want to invite unto your life. You will be much happier striving to be well respected and admired by those in your local community, which I would argue you are. Craving attention and recognition from the cosplay world is natural, but in the long run it’s better to be happy with yourself than catering to what pleases the crowd. And you’ll always be the most beautiful cosplayer in the world to me~
Could you imagine if KotOR was made now? Like fully customisable and voiced Revan, beautiful graphics, awesome lightsaber and spaceship fights, not to mention pretty pretty nextgen Carth and Bastila *drool*
Ah well, a girl can dream ;-;
Could you imagine seeing a super HD Sion with all those scars. That’d be scary as shit
The firaxa sharks would be ten times more terrifying. I need it.
This is what I pray for every night before I go to bed. BioWare, please. Just take our money!
i keep seeing that post about not understanding what jojo’s bizarre adventure is about despite repeated exposure to the fandom, so i’m gonna take that as a challenge:
jojo’s bizarre adventure is about a family called the joestars, who put “jo” in the names of all their kids, because that’s adorable
the joestars are on a century-long quest to capture dio brando (an evil dinosaur-man) and punish him for that thing he did, which was so bad, wow, it’s incredible how bad whatever it was that he did is
but dio is a tricky lil’ bastard, so the joestars have to travel across the globe to find him, landing them in exotic locations like new york city and egypt. along they way they make many friends, including kakyoin, world-champion cherry-stem-knot-tie-r, polnareff, the albino brother of that guy from the slim jim commercials, and abdul, polnareff’s boyfriend
their efforts to finally put dio brando in time-out require a lot of punching. this punching is assisted by a special kind of digimon called “stands”, who strike fancy poses and are named after rock songs, because in addition to their strong sense of justice the joestars are also a bunch of goddamned metalheads
