Asians remind me of natives ~ and I`m a native so I know natives, lol, they just seem awkward in cosplay ~ they should stick to traditional costumes like colorful robes and what naught, while us indians should stick to feathers and tomahawks

"find the 2 black people and win a cookie..."

Found `em. Pics 3 and 10.

Where`s my cookie?

BTW, the Orgy 13 is missing 2... Name which and win yet ANOTHER cookie.


Sad, but true, the only one I couldn`t figure out was the zombie-Disney-princess one, and that`s `cause I don`t watch Disney movies anymore...

#20 is from the Deathnote Movie (Live action - not the anime). I like. :)
Sadly I tend to be kinda racist when it comes to cos-play. Anyone Asian = OK, free pass to awesome. White people = Not ok, fail. We white people just can`t look decent doing cosplay. :/ It always ends up looking embarrasingly awkward, moreso if the person is in glasses or has a weight problem.

Gexxo, #10 is Organization XIII from Kingdom Hearts II. <3 Nerdy, yes, but I have their logo tattooed on my back.

All the Aeris-es (first pic) cracked me up so bad! It`s probably horrible that I laughed when she died in the game the first time I played it -- at age 7.

"It`s just that these people have no place to go."

Uhm costume parties, anime conventions, halloween, release parties...
Plenty of places to cosplay at.
I`ve worn dressed-down halloween costumes to school, so you could do that with cosplay too.

And even alone, bullies aren`t likely to pick on a girl who can kill anyone in 40 seconds.

10 looks like a generic fantasy metal band.

Also, would Halloween be considered the biggest cosplay of them all?

You know...this stuff is really easy to make fun of, but it`s also just a lot like people wearing jerseys and painting their face to go see a sporting event. Both things I personally don`t do, but I can understand it.

It`s just that these people have no place to go.

my only iffiness with the deathnote one, is that Light Yagami is meant to be blonde (??)

one thing i noticed is that one of the metal dudes in #19, looks alot like the guy in FullMetal Alchemist but im not sure if it is or not, can anyone tell me if it is (he`s the one 4th from the right).

i cant believe theres no naruto or bleach amongst them all, or Vash The Stampede (<---guess the anime and win a skoda)

the only good one was #20. they got death note cosplay to a tee. if only the ones who did the warhammer 40k spacemarines did a better job. the dreadnaught is a very good try, but the troops look like douches.

"They`re holding up what looks like a Guinness Records certificate in number 8. Anyone know what for?

Largest convention? Most cosplayers in one place?"

It`s at the London MCM expo for the Guinness record of the "largest gathering of people dressed as video game characters"

Yes, I googled it. Almost every convention nowadays, though, attempts to beat it. It gets further every year.

Asians are always better as cosplaying. In general, American cosplayers suck at costume design and utilizing the character. And no, I`m not trying to be racist, but it`s completely true in my opinion. Asian cosplayers put like 10x more effort into their costumes than Americans do.
