Yeah, it's probably something like that, I have kind of a big butt. I think if I make it tighter on the sides it won't ride up and show my butt. xD

People mention often that they dislike having photo's taken without being asked/at least warned and I never really thought about it being a problem since no one has asked me for photo's at an inappropriate time, like when I'm eating or in line for the bathroom or something. Then after my most recent con I was looking through gallery's for pix of myself and found one that had been taken without me knowing and... it looks really cool :C since I wasn't posing I didn't have a goofy look on my face and I was walking so my costume and hair billowed nicely. So...yeah hahaha, thing's are funny like that.

Yeah, exactly. I can understand if you're like... acting in character, and they're all acting in character. But when you're not, and you're just saying hi to a fellow cosplayer... a response of "Rossiu is a dick." and walking off isn't very nice. :\
Yep. When Orochimaru is hugging naruto and Sasuke, or is giving Vash and Miku a piggy back ride, Im pretty sure they are a good person. xD

-high five for hating stupid people-

*high fives* Well, i don't hate stupid people. But it is awkward to not high five someone. Dont wanna leave you hanging :'P

Especially since she was walking around with a Simon cosplayer and just having fun and buying doujinshi... No need to bash ;u;

Not the idea of cosplay. Just cosplaying in certain fandoms, or such. Like, for one, Lolita. I love the lolita fashion. Its so cute, especially when someone dresses in a fruit theme, with accessories to boot.

BUT. Most lolita dressers i've met... are terribly, terribly rude. The only ones i've met IRL that are nice are one girl who sold me my dress, and the other was a random girl at Anime Expo. Everyone else is usually like "That dress isn't lolita enough." and "Your dress is bodyline? Thats a shitty brand." etc. It really ruins the effect of lolita for me. They always looks so cute, and i imagine them being all polite, using cute little japanese phrases... Nuh uh. Not once.

I might just meet all the rude ones of them, but really. Its soooo annoying. I even avoid the lolita forum here because i've gotten some pretty nasty responses.

Its just like... if you're dressing as something sweet, try and ACT sweet. Or at least not like a total elitest prick.

Lolita is one of many examples. I got turned off from my recent Team Rocket fandom because the admins of the forum i was in decided to block me (since i was dating an admin, we broke up... and i got banned so she didnt have to talk to me :'| ). Kinda made me dislike pokemon for a very long time. Almost happened with Gurren Lagann, too... since i met a group of cosplayers at Anime Expo who were super rude to me because i was dressed as Yoko too... it'd have shut me off from it, if not for my TTGL rps keeping me interested.

Agreed. Really, cosplay wasn't like that during the 90s...sigh, some people are making themselves famous, etc with the whole thing, eh?

I dont think Lolita is really a cosplay, but not all lolitas are like that. those ones are just trying to be trendy. D: They arent real lolis.

Yeah, Lolita is a fashion, not Cosplay.

But I'll agree with you on that. They're in our territory, the least one could do is be a little polite (I mean really, it comes off horribly when you're dressed to the nines and your manners are Gnade-awful.)

Then again, I'm of the persuasion that everyone, regardless of wearing a costume, alternative fashion, or just going mundane, should be polite. (Especially us strangely-dressed folk. We're ambassadors for everyone else, and we don't want people to think of us as immature, right?)

Just... I'll never understand that Lolitas being rude to Cosplayers at Anime Conventions. What do you expect to see at an Anime Con? Hellooo?

(And keep in mind, this is not directed at all Lolis, just the Madames who are making all of us look bad.)

What annoys me is ladies who are quite ... large ... and crossplaying with large breasts and thinking that if people just ignore them, they don't have to bind ... trust me. Theyre hard to ignore when Matt Jeevas has huge ass woman boobs.

Ooooooh, THIS. THIS. THIS.

I tend to take interest in obscure characters and... with obscure characters comes problems with references.
There is this one character, from a Japan only PC game, that I love to death because of his design and well... I can't for the life of me find a full-body picture of his backside, aaargghhh!

This is a peeve for me as well. Not on others, but on myself. I have a chronic inflammatory condition in my ribs, which makes binding for crossplaying quite... well, hazardous to my health. (And when you have mom, dad, fiancee and cardiologist all telling you not to, it's hard to get away with anything.)

If someone has the ability to bind, then they should. However, if it's too uncomfortable, or hazardous to your health, then don't. (Now, I'd recommend finding costumes that draw attention away from your bust if you want to crossplay, the proper outfit ensemble can do wonders. Or you can use girdles to direct the bulk elsewhere so long it isn't going to pose health risks. I fully intend to use a mild-pressure girdle when Crossplaying to make my midsection look less waspy.)

I agree completely. Lolitas are supposed to be kind and eloquent.

I think everyone should have some manners. I would think their parents would have taught them that.

My personal peeve is when I see a fabulous cosplay, and when I ask for a picture I get the most stagnant plain pose that doesn't really highlight the characters' personality at all.

@ Speckles: I don't think that's entirely fair. Some people are horrible at posing (including me) and we have the skill for sewing a costume, but not the photogenic skills :P

Maybe help out a cosplayer and offer some advice on a pose, like "I think you could show off so-and-so prop by holding it like this" etc
