Cosplay Oxymorons

ox·y·mo·ron: a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction (e.g., faith unfaithful kept him falsely true ).

So, I've been wondering, are there any particular oxymorons when it comes to cosplay? :P

Hm... Does it have to be a direct oxymoron, or an implied?

Like "you're awfully nice"-type oxymoron?

Or how about "I'm gonna put on this costume, do my makeup, and put on my wig right quick and be down in a flash."

That's implied. Because like... typically, that process isn't quick.

And also... I just showed my place of origin. "Right quick."

I find myself saying stuff like, "Oh that should be a pretty simple cosplay to make..."
(^ that's an oxymoron in itself)
"... it'll only take me a week or 2, fast!"

"A really good bad cosplay" or " a bad good cosplay". Cosplays that either are great ideas but not executed quite right or cosplays that are not so great in idea, but simple enough to be good.

Um, I just spent a weekend in my Dalek dress being called things like "lovely Dalek" and "darling genocidal death machine".
