So many people dress up as Lady Gaga, Elvis, and more all the time so why should this be any different? I have seen some websites talking about it being weird (they used one of my photos too) but at a convention I had so many people get excited over it and tell me it was the closest they would ever get to meeting GD.

I hope you do Bom soon, I love her so much

You're right, I guess I never thought of it that way though. I don't understand why some people think it's so weird to cosplay a kpop idol, but then think it's ok to cosplay non-kpop celebs. Like heck, I even went to a con once and someone was randomly dressed as David Bowie and people just thought it was cool. The only thing I can think of is that they believe we have a fetish with these idols just because of their Asian descent, and although that may be the case for a slight few, it's definitely not the case for most of us.

But I'm sorry such a rude thing happened to you (with them using your picture and all), but that's awesome that you've received so much love at cons from people who understood! And thank you for the kind words! Hopefully I'll do Bom soon, she's one of my favs <3

yeah looking at online comments its seems to be focused on the fetish and wanting to look korean. But i mean im pretty sure orange caramel would never wear their outfits other then on stage, hence stage outfits which are what people cosplay.

if you go to Kcon this summer you could do Bom haha

I just realised I am extremely late to this thread but anyways, I thought I'd throw in my two cents!

I've done quite a few K-Pop cosplays, including:
Key - SHINee (Sherlock music video)
T.O.P - Big Bang (Fantastic baby live x2, Knock Out music video x2)
Himchan - B.A.P (Warrior music video)
Ravi - VIXX (On and On music video, Hyde music video, GR8U music video, Dynamite music video)
Yunho - TVXQ (Balloons music video, Mirotic music video, Mirotic live x2, Catch Me music video)

Loving everyone's cosplays!
