Has anyone else noticed this phenomena?

Please keep in mind that it is never a good idea to try to run through a crowd, especially when so many people are carrying easily broken/bulky props. Have a little common sense.
Leeroy Jenkins-style?

I've noticed that too. But what I've also noticed is the annoying trend of cosplayers standing around and blocking places because they're waiting for people to take pictures of them. Like, they'll stand in front of an escalator and pose until someone comes up to them. I can understand someone posing for a camera and temporarily blocking a hallway or entrance, but don't just stand around and wait for people to come to you. You might as well be shouting, "I'm ready for my closeup! Come on, I spent 500 hours on this armour, take my damn picture already!" :/

I'm going to have to agree with this.

What, so you can judge people by the way they look? You don't need to have pictures in your gallery to have a valid opinion, you know. Besides, nobody "rules the forums" except the moderators.

Really? I took all that to mean "If you don't have the stones to show yourself, don't judge other people."

Someone must have said this in the previous 5000 some posts (as big of a procrastinator as I am, I'm lazy enough and value my brain enough not to read all 5000 some posts), but lack of consistency and lack of good reference images. Looks like I have to go dig out my manga D:

Oh. And how friggen hard it is to find certain materials. I found a pair of dyeable shoes heels that have a close enough shape to what a character's wearing that I can modify it, but they're 50 a pop. Before shipping. And before modification (beading, feathering and dyeing).

And why can't bridal satin come in more shades of blue? ;_;

I'd add "by their looks" to the end of that. It's like someone calling someone else ugly online, yet they have no pictures up. But that's not what toxic_candy was talking about. He was basically saying that if people say anything negative towards him, they have to have gallery pictures up or he won't take them seriously. Or something. :/

Whatever. I picked one of the most humiliating pictures I have to be my avatar to get all that out of the way anyway.

Back to topic.

To be fair, I do always kind of wonder about people if they come onto cosplay.com, a site about cosplay, and then act all high-and-mighty like they're some kind of cosplay god... yet they have no pictures at all in their galleries.

Actually, being cosplay.com, I'm always a little baffled at people who have no pictures at all in their galleries, unless they're just starting out. But that's not nearly as weird as the ones who claim to be long-time cosplayers with MAD SKILLZ, and absolutely no evidence of these alleged "skillz".

I don't mind when people have no pictures up and yet they're really opinionated, which is what the OP of the peeve was talking about. But I understand what you mean; when people claim to know this and that about cosplay, it'd be nice to see that they've got the skill to back up their statements.

I know who the original complaint was aimed at, and it isn't really an issue of someone claiming to be an amazing cosplayer, though.

toxic candy- if they don't have any pictures and claim it'd EMBARASS other cosplayers, then they are talking through their ass.

Well, I think your avatar is the WIN!


And I agree about the galleries. It's a big peeve of mine when I see someone with an AWESOME avatar and I'm all like, "Omg, that's an amazing costume!" and I go to their gallery to look for more pics, and they have ZERO photos in their gallery! It's really the most disappointing thing ever.

yep pretty much how I feel too... Though I do count myself as pretty good when it comes to making other peoples props. I slip into my "must be perfect" mode with props.
