Usually, one of my greatest goals is to cosplay and go to an anime con. I missed the
one right in my city, which left me pretty pissed, but that was several months ago.
I'm a real geek about anime, so it's on my top priority to someday do list.
Has anyone read the Hey Answerman! column on animenewsnetwork.com lately? It was
about yaoi. I read a really disturbing part of it that kinda went like this:
"-and at animecons, hardcore yaoi fangirls go around paddling people-"
Hold on. Paddling? I THOUGH THAT WAS JUST A JOKE.
Now, for all of those who have actually gone to an animecon are probably
mocking me and/or saying something like "Well, duh!". This one story at
animenewsnetwork told of this one college dude who cosplayed as Kabuto (Naruto) from
Shippuuden who was actual stalked (He wasn't kidding) by a 14 year old
Orochimaru cosplayer. 0_o Check it out.
Second letter down. You'll see it.
So, anyways, I'm probably going to think before I cosplay. This means no Naruto or
Sasuke(Dang it! I really wanted to do him, before timeskip) crossplay for me. Heck, I
should avoid main character bishounen cosplaying altogether. I bet Bleach is alright,
but beware if you cosplay as Kisuke Urahara and walk into a whole crowd of fangirls.
(Deadly frightening, I bet.)
Speaking of said hardcore, rabid fangirls (To those of us who are normal and
controlled, you know who you are and I am not referring to you), I hear that you
immidiately get chewed out and screamed at if your cosplay is bought. Excuse me? I
spend a hundred and fifty bucks on a cosplay of Sailor Mercury, let's say, and you
scream at me just because I didn't make it? HELLO? If I spend a hundred frickin'
bucks, then leave me alone about it. Gosh. I mean, if it's like a five dollar
Halloween costume of Ash, then sure, they deserve it, but if it's a high quality
thing that they bought, then just leave them ALONE. Sheesh.
So... that's it. ^_^ Tell me about your experiences at an animecon if you've ever had
the luck to visit one.
