Meme Cosplays

So Im curious...How many of you have actually cosplayed a meme before? Ive seen a few like Pedobear, the CHARGIN MA LAZORS guy, the bed intruder and a giant troll face. I also saw a guy once with a giant black frame from a demotivational poster and his had a funny caption about cosplayers and was getting cosplayers to stand in the frame xD

I always think that maybe if I need a comfy, easy costume one day I'll just stick a big Troll Face mask on and walk around lol.

What are your thoughts?

Well, I cosplayed Leekspin once, as my first cosplay. But that was a cheap closet cosplay, and the leek was the only thing that really looked somewhat right. I have also considered to maybe cosplay as Cats/"All your base" guy some time, just for fun - the meme's a classic.

I think meme cosplays are a cool idea, as I've always liked most memes. However, there are those that dislikes certain memes because they consider them "overused", or just don't find them funny. (Of course, this is just like people not liking a particular series.) And, well... if you dress as a meme, prepare yourself for people shouting the phrase(if any) at you loads of times. It can get tiring, and you might end up being really sick of it. However, don't care what others say, and dress how you want!
Also, people should see it's a meme from the cosplay. Maybe not really hard with most memes, but if you for example cosplay Weegee(creepy-looking Luigi picture), but just wear the clothes, people can and will mistake you for regular Luigi - try a mask or something.

Meme cosplays are so fun! I've seen a trollface guy and everyone loved it. I definitely think it'll tickle everyone's fancy.

I love meme cosplays; especially when the cosplay is done with a lot of effort. My friend and i were thinking of doing nico nico douga cosplay.

I've seen meme cosplays, but I've never actually cosplayed as one. They're a super fun idea though! I love seeing them, and they're recognizable, so everyone will most likely know who you are.

Pedo bear cosplays are pretty great xD I did hear about something in the news once where some guy dressed as pedo bear in a mall and was giving out hugs to kids. He obviously wasnt a real pedo and just doing it for teh lulz, but I think the police got involved at some point xD

I cosplayed a female version of a popular ghostly kidnapper while my boyfriend was the original male version. It was quite entertaining having people run from us and stopping their sentences after saying his name. haha definitely one of the most entertaining times had in costume yet.

It is a meme (kinda) its called yarinaika; which is like asking some one "do you wanna do it?" the meme is mostly the many faces and funny sounds he makes when hes doing stuff with that other guy lol.

Ah yeah I know of yaranaika and kuso miso technique in general, but i wasnt sure if it qualifies as a meme... I dont see it very often (never have) so IDK if it has ever been a meme or if it ever will. ^ ^;;;

Totally is, and there have definitely been some, but it would still be fun.
