I'm sure it's no ones intention to put anyone down for getting tricked. It's not everyday when something like this can happen and there are some who are inexperienced with handling creepers. But let this be a good lesson to you in the future. As harmless cosplay is, it can still attract some bad people. Be wary of what they say or have you do. PUSH them with questions, and always be sure to check back with the original site they're "affiliated" with to get a confirmation.

For the people that CLEARY don't know what they're talking about:

When you were asked for the interview they stated it was "cosplay centric". It wasn't until you go through a roughly average interview "why did you cosplay this" "what's your favorite thing about cosplay" etc. does the impersonator do the quiz.

As far as I know, the people that were tricked into doing the normal part of the interview were in no way aware there was going to be an equivalent of strip poker in which the impersonator rigged the questions just to get you to "lose" and thus have to remove pieces.

Here are two blog posts that further explain why and how these innocent cosplayers get scammed, because clearly some people never been lied to and believed it, so excuse them for being tricked. They're only human after all.

Apparently someone is continuing these antics with a surprise strip-quiz after what seems like a legitimate interview. Only difference is it is through Facebook, the interviewer is a girl and they says you could win a laptop if you answered everything correctly.

Warning - it is the same people. One of the girls who had this happen before is able to confirm that it is them again. Thank you for sharing that link, Emrys, was about to do that myself just now.

I'm not getting interview requests, but someone named "Reggie Dhrty" added me on Skype asking to paint one of my cosplay pictures.

Besides the Avatar picture to the side, I don't have any pictures on this website. I've seen this before so I know it's a scam, but yeah, this is going around o.O

Pretty sure it's the same person. From what I heard 'she' would get you to go on camera in cosplay (without a webcam or microphone herself) and then interview you with obscenely sexual questions or ask you to strip.

Of course, as soon as I heard this I blocked her from my Skype. My best advice is do the same.

Lovely how the rumor mill warps the info., was not under the impression that they were being this direct as it would ruin their guise of professional interview...
Their methods are on the front page.
