Godspeed, my friend. A world full of wedgies, noogies, and swirlies awaits you…
That picture alone as pretty much killed any interest I ever had in comic conventions or anything related to such.
I’ve been to quite a few comic conventions, and this is nothing compared to the true depravity that cosplay is truly capable of. You’ve obviously never seen a 30 year old obese man try to fit inside Rei Ayanami’s plugsuit (blue wig and all) or a super-tight Spider-Man suit whilst sporting a massive erection.
…or endless amounts of Naruto cosplayers, many of whom would rather make you run and brain bleach yourself with the obese man-Rei.
Sexy Naruto done by an obese man is something that makes me think twice of going to conventions, anime/scifi/comic/fantasy/any of them. Then I remember that there are nuggets to be found…like a really nice Lightning cosplayer I wished I had gotten her number. :x
A man on OperatorChan, who goes by the tripcode of FruityRudy (Not the real FruityRudy, though he knows him), has a wife who does absolutely incredible cosplays. She alone would make it worth going to conventions.
Otakon 2010 had me talking to a vet who I caught lounging outside. He was pulling off Old Snake methinks, but the shot was perfect and I caught him off guard. I present to you a cosplayer that blows CoD boy outta the water:
Ok Cameron, having all that information and even a working knowledge of the term “cosplay” requires me to ask you to surrender your man card.
I laugh at this…then realize I’m practically on the same boat.
Over my dead body.
I don’t get it, what would a “sexy Naruto” even look like? I don’t see how that’s nearly as bad a a dude with a full-on boner in a Spider-Man costume trying to talk to me.
So people cosplay as a naked teenage girl?!? How is that even…
I hate humanity
I think we as a fandom tend to ignore the more…
Hell I dunno how to describe them.
They are the extremists of fandom, there’s no other way to describe ’em. Like Al Qaeda to our moderate Muslims.
Well I say no more! I’m tired of being the silent majority, we need to rise up and hold a press conference or something to let the world know that this highly visible minority does not represent nerdery as a whole! Most nerds are normal people who shower, hold respectable jobs, and don’t cross-dress as under-aged, oversexed Japanese cartoon characters. Maybe then, and only then, will girls finally go out with us.
Amen brother, amen.
Because snagging a nerdy girl that hasn’t given up on males and went for their own sex is friggin hard. So close, but oh so far away. Very far away.
I know what you mean, both of my local comic book shops are run by lesbians, no joke. Very nice people, but you can tell they’ve been surrounded by the worst of us male nerds for far too long.
I say this because they run a comic book/cosplay store, so yeah, it’s like the Mos Eisley of nerd havens.
I feel bad for the booth babes who have the worst of them buzzing around like flies. I wonder if it’s any better for Shot Show babes dealing with mall ninjas?
I think it’s a genius idea.
Ah nerds… without them, who would we laugh at? Well, I guess we’d still have foreigners, hillbillies, and the cast of the Jersey Shore to laugh at.
Upon further review, I realize I shouldn’t have used the word “nerd” here. That implies a high level of intelligence. I should have used the word “geek,” it’s possible that “dork” might also be appropriate.
I went to one science fiction convention (NASFIC, 1987).
That was enough for me. While I admire the creativity in some of the costumes, the level of geekery on display was too much for even me, and I speak as someone who played D+D before Greyhawk came out…
How do I put a custom thumbnail for my posts? Getting a little tired of the generic Glock.
You need to sign up for an account at gravatar.com and you can pick whatever thumbnail you want. Wordpress automatically fetches the thumbnail from there every time you enter your email address in a blog when you decide to comment.
Kinda cool reminds me of the outfit someone made of the iPhone 4.
At least it wasn’t another poor excuse of a Final Fantasy cosplay. Or Naruto, or DBZ, or well just about any overdone anime. Not saying I don’t like anime but hey, at least it was original. But yes, he is going to have to look forward to a life of wedgies, noogies, and swirlies. And kill-cams.
If you ever see me at a cosplay whatever the hell that is, or a comic convention or any of the shit that is being discussed here, I have been kidnapped..if you can’t resuce me shoot me in the head asap.
I’ll let you stew in the stench of thousands of people who have not remembered to shower then probably rescue you in a dramatic fashion.
“Hey look it’s -name of famous Japanese music Idol- over there.”
Then I’ll ship you to a convention/gathering more of your liking. Like a gun show.
