View Full Version : Look alike contest?

What if, for AnimeFEST! 2008, there was a cosplay look alike contest- with prizes? But this means more than just a good costume like the masqurade as things such as actual physical likeness to the character (like a large overweight man could not win, no matter how amazing his costume was, if he were to cosplay kinomoto sakura) and ablility to imitate the characters personality should factor in as well. this is just a suggestion, please let me know what you guys think!

I dunno, I don't like these kinds of contests xD Though if one is held, I have nothing against it ^^

I personaly don't like these kinds of contests as well... but I agree with MoonNeko.. if it is held I have nothing against it.. I just don't like it...

Considering most anime and cartoon proportions tend to be utterly unrealistic, it doesn't seem very likely that a real person can have much physical likeness to a character. I can't say the same for realistic videogames or live action shows, however.

Points for originality, but I doubt it'll actually work, as unless the creators tried their damnedest to make the characters look human, the proportions would be out of whack.

You'd rule out so many genres of costumes with this - mascots, animals, chibi-sized characters... and it would doubtless generate a lot of bad feelings.
