my first con many years back, AWA, I saw an Alucard cosplayer, and was pretty sure it was a Carmen Sandiego cosplay.
I shouted at them
the cosplayer turned around and looked at me utterly confused and slightly horrified.

About 5 years ago I cosplayed as a scout from TF2. This older guy walked up to me and asked if I was "some kind of a Girl Scout or something". I told him "no" and walked away. I got about 20 yards away from him before I realized that, technically, he was right.

I went to a comic convention as John Constantine from Hellblazer, people still asked me if I was Castiel or the Doctor. I can understand Castiel slightly more, considering they literally wear the same trench coat, because the creator of Supernatural was obsessed with Hellblazer, but the Doctor Who one just upset me. Those coats look nothing alike, and Constantine is blonde. But I guess people are so used to shit tier "let me just throw on any trench coat and any color of converse and say I'm the Doctor" cosplays that they don't even know the difference anymore?

We were having a photoshoot in the mountainpark in Kassel, Germany. It's the greatest location you could imagine for all Tolkienverse-stuff: An artificial landscape made by some pretentious count in the 18th century, including artificial mountains, large rivers and lakes, waterfalls, aqueducts and even artificial ruins.
We were just a small group, my gf me and our best friend cosplaying as elves (Legolas, Glorfindel and Thranduil) and taking pictures.

Of course there were many people there but folks in Kassel are used to seeing cosplayers at least once a year and everyone likes elves. Especially well-behaved ones like us. We answered many questions, people took pics with us and then we went about our business.

The best thing was one old man approaching me and telling me I was the nymph from greek mythology that fled from a satyr and turned into a bush to hide from him. I was so flabbergasted, I simply agreed. (Also he was that kind of "old people"-cute that makes you go all "d'awww" and simply agree, even if they tell you that manga is actually a fruit)

I went to my first con at age 16, and it was an event I was hightly anticipating at the time. I had already been sewing clothes since I was 9 or so with my mother, and when my friend who had been to cons before told me people often dress up, I immediately went to work.
Months I spent slaving over my pride and joy, having my friend help me out with the wig (she's great with wigs, but I had never worked with them before.)
My mom drops me off the day of the convention, I'm so excited, can't wait to bond with people over mutual interests and hang out with some friends. I see a lot of cosplayers, I'm excited. Someone walks up to me:

My other dresses just get confused people trying to sound smart and tell me what period I came from. Its a very plain very rough farm girl dress from early Victorian era and has no hoop which seems to really throw people off. I've had people argue with me that I'm really supposed to be colonial because no one would go out without a hoop at that time. I'd like to know how they thought farm girls did all their work in a hoop, its hard enough in petticoats.

This is not exactly a mistake , but...
Hapenned less than 1 year ago
I'm asian but I live on some European city
I went to a con, with a shitty cosplay; was my first and it was just bad done
must say I'm "cute" /not want to seem pretentious/
I participated on the cosplay contest; I didn't had anything prepared; I just go on stage for make some typical poses of my character
Then another girl, cosplayed as the same character as me, did an awesome interpretation, and her cosplay was 100% perfect
She was not ugly but not cute, just normal

The jury choose the winner
The other girl seems pretty shocked
I was choosed only for be "kawaii" (judgues told to me)

I asked to jury if I can decline the first place, and they said there was another chinese girl in the second place who will be the winner (and with crappy cosplay too)

So when I left the scenery, I gave all the prizes to the well done cosplayer and apologize a lot
She seems shocked again and cannot accept the gifts
I insisted
At least we share them

That's how I met a very good friend

I never watched Soul Eater and often forget it exists, so every time I see a Stein I automatically think it's a cosplay of that doctor from Gregory Horror Show. It doesn't even make sense and I know it's wrong as soon as the thought runs through my mind but... every time. Without fail.

I really wish Supernatural cosplayers would just put a modicum more of effort into their shit, because they're bringing my Castiel cosplay down with them and it's getting really annoying. The stuff is so shit tier it makes me question if they have eyes. No, just wearing any old trench coat does not make you Castiel, did you not even look at a reference image before you bought yours? His trench coat doesn't have a storm flap, it doesn't have epaulet belts on the shoulders, the yoke in the back goes straight across, it's double breasted, the sleeves attach at the collar, not the shoulder... It goes on and on and on. And for christ's sake, go to the effort of getting a fucking men's suit, it's not that hard. And style your goddamn hair, lord... I spent too much time and money on my costume getting literally every detail screen accurate to be lumped in with a bunch of shit tier nonsense when I mention I cosplay from Supernatural.

That's a battle you're going to lose, though, anime cons haven't really catered to simply anime cosplayers in ages. The moment you start saying live action cosplayers aren't allowed, you're opening a whole can of worms to where vidya and the like are no longer allowed either, and at the end of the day, you piss a lot of people off and lose about half of the cosplayers at a con, some of the more impressive costumes along with them. Simple fact is, you're going to have a lot of them for as long as anime cons are more widespread and affordable than any other genre of fandom con, and that's just a fact of life. I'm sorry that cons are no longer a place for the animu purist, but they haven't been for a long while.

>> No.7515212

Except Video games and Japanese con culture have always had a place together. How many games growing up (at least someone born in the 1980s like me ) are Japanese? My first two systems were SNES and Genesis. Japanese games dominated the market in the 1980s and 1990s, so it's only logical to see them at Anime cons. Western comics and Tv shows have no place being there though. it's just irritating. It would be one thing if they were a small occurance, but lately, they've been huge groups and panels, taking over shit.
