This has been circulating around my facebook timeline, I thought it would be interesting to discuss here.
Basically, a Taiwanese cosplayer named Misa Chiang is praised (or called out? I don't really know exactly since I don't understand Chinese) for her use of Photoshop by another cosplayer, Lulu Kui (I don't know where Lulu's from, but I'm guessing Hong Kong).
The 'drama' started when Lulu Kui made a post in her facebook acc with the picture I attached, captioned "Don't doubt that is really the same person Lai www. Find Different Point ! Amazing !" (I facebook translated it). Then, Misa responds back with this post in her page (English) :https://www.facebook.com/misapage2/photos/a.393617704007208.80254.391035614265417/994379570597682/?type=3&theater
Misa admits to photoshop, and apparently have blocked people who people who left spiteful comments, especially from Hong Kong people.
After some lurking in the comments, it seems the drama stems from Misa herself, who was criticized heavily for "lazy cosplaying". Some of them said that she didn't care about her quality of cosplay anymore. She always forget to bring props, or she even didn't make/buy one because she will just put that on the photo through photoshop. Lots of my friend that cosplays that have met her in real life do think she looks very different compared to her photopacks. Some of the comments also said that Misa has attitude problem, that's one of the factor why Lulu posted her post, but I don't know much about this, so I can't give more information on that.
What do you think about Misa's photoshop? I do think the it's a little bit much though, she doesn't look like herself in most of her cosplay photos.
