“Am I the only one who thinks that well known ‘famous’ cosplayers like  Malindachan and Ex-Shadow are over rated? ‘famous’ cosplayers are normal  people too, they just have a little extra money and a little more  patience than the rest of us to do things. Hell some of us are just as  good, we just never seem to be noticed.”

The idea of “popular” or “famous” cosplayers is the most absolutely ridiculous thing ever. If you think you’re one- look at your life, look at your choices.

Honestly? I love cosplayers. I’m only a very very light dabbler (I did make an awesome Honjo Ren before I got the dreads, though… And a passable Casanoda _back_in_the_day_) and because I know several cosplayers, and because I’m the type of person who owns their own sewing machine, I can appreciate the hard work that goes into these costumes…But famous cosplayers just don’t do it for me. Good on them for finding something they love, but don’t expect me to be in awe of them because of that.

    Can’t decide if this person is legitimate in their feelings or only bitter because they aren’t popular, too.
