This thread is for discussion of any cosplay communities/fandoms/trends you find embarrassing or cringe outside of your average costhotery. Any talk of Patreon, Onlyfans, or generally skimpy cosplays should be taken to the Costhot thread. Every few months a new insufferable fandom or trend pops up and overtakes the cosplay landscape — let’s talk about some of the ongoing ones.

Current fandom examples:
>Genshin Impact
>My Hero Academia/BNHA
>Danganronpa
>JJBA

Current trend examples:
>cosplay tiktoks with bad lip syncing or shitty dancing
>paper wigs
>cosplayers covering themselves in glue and rolling around in garbage
>wigs so crimped they look deep fried
>drag style makeup for every character

Just say you don't know anything about lace wigs. Drag queens do have excess like this in big heavy wigs. This is basic shit they even teach you in drama class because you need more security when the hairline is receded. You just add more makeup or learn to blend well.

Thats not even scrapping the surface of the barrel with the crimped wigs that are seen on the regular. The technique isn't bad in it's self but it's not being taught or done properly. Crimping adds volume and should be combed out and covered with a layer of uncrimped hair and not crispy from hairspray or heat.

There isn't much quality control in this age of cosplay especially with zoomer cosplayers and even costhots. Theres more emphasis on 'being creative/differet' and all cosplay being valid than doing things properly.

is it weird that i kinda like this makeup as its own thing lol… but yeah wtf that wig is a nightmare. at least umbran's don't look frizzy like this.

but meh, "quality control in cosplay" has always been dicey, there's always been cringe low effort messy cosplay en masse, it's not really a "kids these days" kinda thing, the current bad cosplay trends are just a different flavor than the bad cosplay of previous eras. i do feel like nowadays a lot of the "good" cosplayers on tiktok aren't anywhere near the level of the good cosplayers of the 2010s though, a lot of the cosplayers tiktok worships are just in cheap lazy shit with some random edgy accessories and flashy makeup thrown in, so yeah i get what you're saying.

Even Yaya Han is doing a bad job with the crimping

No. 200915

>>200898
She's never been particularly good at a lot of cosplay related shit, but god forbid you said that back in the day and people called you vendetta-chan. She just knew who to schmooze, how to buy likes, and how to inflate her tits, but in person she always looked like a thai ladyboy and the quality of her costumes are shit. Its like people forgot what a fucking mess her burlesque snow white was without all the photoshop and strategic lighting.

No. 200923

>>200915
I think it's a bit of a stretch to word it like that because back when she rose to her original 'fame' was before instagram was even a thing and facebook was young. Her weird 2010's ego came from that. Not to say every cosplayer was ugly but tbh I feel like most early 200s 'big name' cosplayers werent lookers to begin with.

The issue comes from since then she's milked being a 'veteran big name cosplayer' to filth and having such a huge ego that she tried to make that 'Heroes of Cosplay' show make her seem like she was the best most famous cosplayer ever when her relevancy was already fading heavily at that point.

No. 200930

Yaya didn’t style the wig so judge the commissioner instead(sage)

No. 200981

>>200923
To be fair, she was one of the “big name” cosplayers back when there were very few. Before social media, you got famous by working cosplay.com, which she did, so you would get featured on the site that all the cosplayers were on. I’ve never seen her stuff in person so I can’t say how it looks without photoshop, but back in the day I don’t think she made her own costumes. At least that was the general word around the cosplay community

No. 200983

>>200898
To be honest, I think it kind of works for her. If someone like Moo or Umbran wore it, it wouldn't look that good, but the crimping suits her and doesn't stand out the same way that umbran's non-moving helmets look. The side bangs look terrible, but this wig isn't on Yaya at least. I think she used Wisperia one time, which she should go back to.

>>200923
She should have the ego she has though, tbh. She's helped mainstream cosplay, has actually put in the work to have her own line collab for fabrics, buttons, other odds and ins. She started really early with ears and worked that out of her garage. Like, Yaya is one of the very few cosplayers with skills and who's put in real work, that I say deserve to be considered a real celebrity. Costumers like her are well known within that realm outside of cosplay and it shows with people she's worked with. Now you have people posing nude, throwing on a wig, and just getting surgery for money. Yaya did look a little unfortunate in the chest area for a lot of the characters she wanted to cosplay. I don't considering a breast augmentation to be an issue either. She does good work too. Her, Nigri, and Kamui even though I know they can be argued, but compared to a lot of thots now, these three have completely gone the opposite direction with the fact that they actually still make their stuff. I just feel like unless it's builders like CBC or other.. names, idk right now, most cosplayers are so lazy now. Like look at >>195682 jesus

No. 200991

>>200983
Nigri was the one who started the costhot bs we have to deal with now. She got implants, sometimes threw on a wig, posed in her underwear, and called it cosplay. That and the possibly rigged contest is how she got famous. She still does all that. She hasn't even remotely gone in the opposite direction.

No. 200992

>>200991
Yes, but she actually builds stuff too. She isn't the same as someone like Momokun or Lori. She isn't a basic thot and hasn't really been one even though she kept with the same schtick. She's good at what she does, then you have sloppy seconds like Sushimonster and StellaLewds.

Thats not a big deal. She learned how to do stuff. Thats a massive step up from clown cosplayers. Compare any of Momokun's made outfits for her to Jessica's outfits of the same cosplays. There's a big difference between Jessica's thottery compared to a lot of other costhots. She mainstreamed it and she is still one of the better ones out there with quality and consistancy.

No. 200996

>>200992
Nigri's claim to fame was all on her ex boyfriend making her big builds. The majority of her old big builds that got her famous were not made by her. I used to be a fan of how dedicated she was to her exercise regime and fan interaction. Even though she's always been busted in the makeup department, she had fun shoots with good production quality. At this point, her body and shoots are mostly photoshop and do not reflect many real crafting abilities of her own.

No. 201109

>>201042
Then it's not because of cosplay, it's because she hated her body in an industry she worked in which is known for paying more well endowed women. And again, flat as a board. A lot of people feel good when they cosplay, actually looking good in it and filling it out, is probably something that was a nice bonus for her tits, but she did not set that bar. That was Jessica and simps and the fact that normies infultrated cons that have more of these girls attention. We slowly moved on to booth babes without booths.

No. 201157

>>201109
She absolutely did set that bar because Nigri was up her ass and they're still good friends. Nigri was also not well endowed and got bolt ons. I don't know if this thread was infiltrated by scrotes or old tripfags from 2013 /cgl/, but it was definitely a turning point in the scene and it was several factors. Neither yaya or nigri are innocent.

No. 201158

>>201157
It’s all these new cosplayers who started cosplaying in the mid 2010’s when you could buy an entire cosplay off of taobao with no work whatsoever and get your ass kissed if you’re cute. They weren’t around before Yaya or Nigri had implants, and only know them as costhots. Nigiri…meh, she’s a thot but she’s making some stuff. Good on her for making millions off s rites even if she isn’t really talented. Yaya though, she put in the work, she built her brand and was able to get deals for her patterns, fabrics and notions. Even if you want to argue that she’s a thot, she’s done quite a bit for the community as a whole if only that there are now cosplay specific patterns for things like schoolgirl outfits that had to be Frankensteined before

No. 201209

>>201157
No, you just never grew out of hating implants like a child. I don't gaf is someone has fake tits in cosplay, for the most part its how characters are drawn, but discrediting Yaya for literally helping make cosplay mainstream and outside of sword vendors that existed for props, she went out of her way to try to make accessories, that weren't just Party City cat ears, for the general con scene. Even Jessica puts in work and has for about 10 years now. At some point you gotta stop moving the goal post and realize that there are higher teir thots with real work. At least Jessica isn't just wearing lingerie anymore, she actually makes her stuff interesting and has done a lot of canon work too. You must mostly sound mad about cosplayers who put their sexuality on display, but your going after the wrong thots. Even these girls quality far outweigh basic costhots.

No. 201228

>>201158
Just to add, thots like CosplayDeviants getting the massive attention it did, headlines at certain conventions, real porn hoes like Envyus, Momokun, Chell, Stephanie Michelle, Succubus and Bunny.. There are legit girls to blame for the sexualization normalization of the modern cosplay girl, not Jessica or Yaya. They have their niches but I would never compare Jessica to a CD. Those girls were infiltrating cons, Tumblr, Facebook pages, Instagram, Twitter.. They made cosplay the sexualized market it is.

No. 201232

Who? Who had the better mass marketing and was able to use connections for the reach her merch got? The types of fabric ears sold on Etsy weren't even around at the time.

I know it's a national pastime for old cosplayers to shit on Yaya, but come on.

Ntayrt but I've made her bunny suit pattern for misses size 18, which should be a 40-inch bust. the finished garment for a D-cup has a 45-inch bust! It's really off their standard measurements and it makes me wonder how nobody at McCall's caught it.

considering how most people who would be making a bunny suit, outside of cosplay, would pad their bras to begin with, maybe pad your own or take it in. It's not that big an issue. You see someone on the front with a massive chest size outside normal women and you don't think twice about it maybe being a larger size? do you do the same with plus size specific patterns? lol

No. 203954

>>203947
A cup size is roughly an inch difference. Who do you know that's padding a D cup five cup sizes up? The model on the package wearing one size doesn't mean anything when the pattern has multiple sizes. Do you not buy clothes because the model wears a different size than you?

No. 204033

>>203954

Can you show the measurements since you clearly have them and post to everyone ITT what the sizes are on the actual pattern in her design? I would love, love, love to see exactly this 5" change because not a single damn person has said anything in all these years that I've seen these patterns available. You would think it would've been known already if she patterns catered to her tits and not just her being on the cover and editing her own pattern. I've typed in all sorts of renditions of "big" "too big" "bunny suit bust" and none of the reviews for this suit have any complaints about this random massive edit she has in this pattern because it doesn't exist. If you're going to talk out your ass to try and throw some vendetta at her, at least don't make shit up.

It's not vendetta to point out the pattern company fucked up. Their size chart says a size 18 is a 40 inch bust but the D cup on the pattern is 45. Even the A/B cup is 3 inches bigger. You even see multiple women here saying the size chart is off: https://sewing.patternreview.com/Patterns/78744

McCall's adds five inches of ease to literally every pattern. Same with the other big pattern companies. Only scrubs use back of the envelope sizing, it's never actually correct.

Yaya gave them patterns and they fucked them up because they don't understand the market and how corsets are supposed to work. Andrea Schewe talks about the pattern companies fucking with her designs all the time, too, this isn't a Yaya thing.

I wish all these clout chasers would realize that the people making money from cosplay are either selling something (books, tutorials, patterns etc.), selling nudes, doing commissions or they’re one of the few people that’s famous enough to do constant appearances (Yaya, Kamui etc. although most of them have other revenue streams as well). You’re not owed a career in your hobby just because you want it, either figure out a way to make something people want to spend money on or get a job like the rest of society.

Kamui Cosplay is butting heads with her followers and 3D modeler Dangerous Ladies. She purchased a DL hairpin model for her sponsored Genshin Impact build, but then strongly implied that her husband made it from scratch. Numerous people in the original post asked who modeled the hairpin or recognized it as a DL build, but Kamui didn't reply to any of them.

Pic related is DL finally subtweeting her after she and friends yet again credited the hairpin to Benni. Kamui shifted the blame to a friend, blamed everyone's poor English, and then credited on a single post. This week on multiple posts she's back to removing credit and claiming she self-built the entire cosplay herself.

No. 240856

>>240819
It's worse cuz Kamui had initially tagged DL on her story back when she started the hairpin. I saw it on DL's story because she reposts everyone's stories who tag her company. To roll that back and pretend that she didn't have any outside help is entirely on purpose. Does Kamui have proof she or her husband modeled the rest of the accessories? The hairpin file is only sold as part of a full accessory set.

No. 240922

>>240819
Easy solution, she posts the side to side 3D print files. I'm going to assume DL has it set in place that you can't edit her model from download. DL uses .stl and not .obj for a lot of her files. .stl makes it easy to edit in any program, and you can resave or rename it to edit it. It could just be a coincidence that she bought it in case her husband couldn't have created a proper file, but we won't know otherwise. Maybe if they could show author information through the properties, but DL would need to get their hands on Kamui's file to prove that. Her husband and her have made 3D files before too, so that's not out of the ordinary. I've seen cosplayers commission stuff and then wind up having to make their own because it just didn't work out.

There isn't a question of wherher she's using the DL model. Kamui said she's using it right in the tweets and credited her in a single post after the call out. But now she's back to glossing over the fact like she made everything herself.

No. 241055

If she already credited her then DL needs to just shut up. no one is going to tag everything they post, especially on Twitter which has a small field for tagging. DL just sounds greedy. Sure as hell not tagging more than once if I used someone's model or cosplay they made me. There's no reason to announce it every single time. On Instagram it's easier to tag, but DL just doesn't sound satisfied enough because she wants Kamui's clout. I'm with Kamui on this one. She tagged the girl and credited her. Posting photos otherwise doesn't need more clarification every single time. It's beggy.

Stop wking. She credited two other cosplayers for helping her make other pieces multiple times and conveniently forgot to credit the person who made her accessories until called out and then shoved them under the tags where no one pays attention. The other two cosplayers are credited front and center.

I'm not whiteknighting. Pick your panties up and calm down. DL sounds beggy. End of story. kamui did credit her, just not as much as she wanted which is shitty behavior of someone who gives out mass models. She needs to go after every single person then, but she doesn't. She goes after Kamui because she's a name. She got her credit. Bitch needs to stfu already and stop trying to start drama with Kamui. If she didn't give credit at all, I would understand and be on DL's side, but the other girls aren't even tagged in her REEL either. They are all tagged under the actual photo post.

IF anons don't know, the >>240819 is a screencap of a REEL on Instagram. No one was tagged in it and 'self made' still can count as her not buying pieces like pre-made cosplayers do. DL sounds like she's taking the 'all self made' when she did still have to make DL's model from the download. She made the model, but bitch didn't fucking MAKE it, Kamui did.

No. 241078

Did you even read the tweets? Not only is dl clearly not talking about that specific reel because these tweets are from July, she didn't "go after" Kamui. People were tagging dl and messaging her about it because credit was being given to Benni when it was obvious to many people who made the models. Kamui admits she didn't credit dl at all originally.

this is extra funny to me because kamui used to throw fits about people not crediting her for her techniques/books/tutorials (worbla over foam at the time, not that original) and claimed she popularized it and that other's shouldn't make books based on the same techniques because they were knocking her off, yet went on to make books about making eva foam cosplays despite being friends with punished props aka the people who made the very popular foam smith series of books years before

Commercial purposes means selling it, anon.. they don't mean you can't be in commercials or promo stuff. NTA you're talking about either? Trying to explain what sellers mean by this. They mean it specifically for reselling as you can mass manufacture their model like this.

No. 241198

I honestly think crediting paid 3D models is kind of stupid. 3D modeling isn't niche anymore, there's more than 1 person who has that hairpin model anyway. This just seems like the new "I painted the wings, credit me" like in 2005 when cosplayers were foaming about shit like this. At some point people need to realize that certain generic things, don't need tagging. Wigs, I get. That's a commission, but the 3D sculpt it up for anyone to use, especially if you aren't selling it, it's like going to the store and buying something yourself. You aren't going to credit the person who made the outfit 24/7. It honestly feels like a grab to modelers to beg for credit when you are the one who has to print it, sand it, prep it, paint it. It's not the same as a commission and doesn't deserve to be acknowledged the same as one either.

Actually, yes. They aren't printing the model and reselling it, it's a prop. Even if it's in a film, doesn't mean the people watching are suddenly going to get that prop in their hands too. Disney actually has done this before and they have open source models too. The point is not trying to sell it like how Disney sells hats or like how Mcdonald's has those toys in their bags. Even just reselling the model. Otherwise, you'd have a lot of 3D modeler lawsuits, anon. Commercial only means mass manufacturing for sale of your own benefit. It being a prop isn't the same lol

Nobody would have cared if she wasn't deliberately being shady when asked. People use DL models constantly without credit and she doesn't care. This all started when somebody asked Kamui who did the sword and that third person she has working for her said it was Benny. Then DL subtweeted and Kamui got shit until she fixed it.

Now, weeks later, she does the same thing - posts that say "all hand made" and showing videos of Benny in blender. Anyone who sees that video is going to assume Benny made the model from scratch.

The bump in reach from being tagged by a cosplayer as big as Kamui could be huge; she’s one of the most well known cosplayers out there. It was about seeming like she and Benni do everything from scratch when no one would have held it against her for buying models to save time. She fucked up, got caught and she’s not handling it gracefully.

Cosplayers just become more conceited as time goes on, they always love making it seem like its only them and their nigel working hard but its based off of work from several other people that get left uncredited until they feel like it or someone asks a question like “how did you model x?”
Using blender and creating your own models isnt even difficult in 2022, so when you make the choice to use someone elses work even if you paid for it, crediting is the least you can do when your whole career and social media feeds are “mUh hAnD mAdE cOsshuPlAys”

Considering she’s getting hired for stuff where they need the costume made, it makes sense. Why hire a separate model to wear the costume when she’ll wear it? She’s mainly getting paid to make the costumes, and honestly they do stand up well enough that her face doesn’t matter as much.
If you look at the people who make costumes (and do it well enough to get paid for it), most of them are not model pretty. Most of them are older (late 20’s and up). Younger cosplayers are more likely to buy costumes since it’s so accessible now. I honestly hate how much cosplay has turned into a beauty contest because of social media; it’s supposed to be fun and I wish people cared about craftsmanship more.
TLDR: Kamui may be shitty and not gorgeous but her costumes are very well done (though in large part by her husband).

I'm surprised nobody's mentioning the World Cosplay Summit drama.
The summary:
WCS, for the first time ever, held a competition outside of Japan, this weekend at a convention called Gamers8.
All the contestants were invite only from previous WCS alumni. 39 countries total.
Problem is, the contest was held in Saudi Arabia, with it all being funded by the Saudi government, including the $100k prize pool. The board members of the con are the Saudi royal family.
Cosplay community is pissed because these cosplayers have chosen to go to a country that's awful for human rights.
Gets milkier because lots of the competitors went over the heads of their country's wcs organisation, and said yes independently, even when their country had directly told WCS no.
Trans cosplayers were banned from entering, so some people went without their previous cosplay partners and found someone new. No crossplay was allowed for men, but women dressing as men was fine. All female cosplayers had to be covered to the neck. Lots of fighting on twitter about whether its ok that these cosplayers went or not.

This doesn’t sound like an official WCS event, as the official contest was 2 months ago. This sounds like a contest for the con that wanted to have high level international competition so they invited WCS alumni. I doubt WCS would allow people to just pick a new partner to compete with because they’ve always required the team to win preliminaries to go to the finals.
Also, most of the world isn’t nearly as woke as the US. A huge number of countries would have teams who would jump at the chance to do this competition. The fact that women had to be fully covered was probably more of a deterrent to teams than Saudi politics.

I am an alumni myself and this is official, but yeah, looks like a scuffed situation. Distanced myself from this event and cosplay after I competed due to how ugly a lot of this kind of thing and the people can get.

In order to make things happen if Saudi Arabia bans some cosplayers, I can totally see WCS bending their usual rules in order to make it possible for a country to still send a team. This isn't unheard of to me. It was even possible in case of emergency when I competed.

There is an article linking this Gamers8 event with the official WCS organization if you search online. You can also see it posted about on official WCS channels like their Instagram.

Yeah if you go to their Facebook it's all over the page. They're pushing the event hard, presumably because the Saudi govt gave them an obscene amount of cash to do it.

Gamers8, the con it's being held at, is one of those propaganda events the Saudis are using to rehab the country's image to the rest of the world and make it attractive for business and tourism, similar to F1 and LIV Golf, except in the latter's case even multi-millionaire athletes turned down the money on ethical grounds. The $100k prize pool didn't get announced until after the teams agreed to go so basically all these cosplayers who decided to attend agreed to be Saudi propaganda for cosplay clout and a free vacation.

I mean, WCS has never been a truly equal competition. I’m not sure how it works in other countries, but in the US it’s pretty limited to only people who are either wealthy or plan for it for years. You have to have the disposable income to make several high level costumes (since besides your competition costume you have to have different ones for the parade and different events) and then to travel to Anime Expo to compete, which is not a cheap convention unless you are local. And you have to be able to take time off from work to go to Japan for finals. Honestly, the only US representatives that I found to be impressive were when JHart went (I can’t remember who his partner was). They had a bunch of past competitors’ costumes at AX one year and none of them really impressed me; some were mediocre enough that I was genuinely surprised. But considering that most high level competitive cosplayers would rather work towards competitions that have cash prizes (even though a lot of them are somewhat rigged), WCS is limited to people who want to do it for the experience, have the disposable income to be able to make the costumes and go to AX, and have a close enough relationship with another cosplayer to want to work together on it.

No. 247857

Well a contest is not about equality lol. This contest tho is so shady from the beginning, there is absolutely no information about who is going, what they going to wear and why they were choosen. I don't even know the people who represented my country LMAO. In the end, absolutely NO hype from the public. No one in the cosplay community celebrated the winners or any team, its so funny. Proof you can't buy a public's hype with shiny LEDs on stage and cash money. Especially if you ban LGBT lmao. But I must admit that I am kinda surprised in a good way that female cosplayers didn't have to alter their costumes too much. Where I first heard about a cosplay venue in Saudi Arabia, I really thought that every female cosplayer would have to cover from the feet to the head and wear ugly skin spandex on their arms and legs. I guess they allow it because it's a private venue ? Like, Saudi is not the same shit as Qatar or Dubai.

She's not making fun of herself, she's trying to make more "relatable" content while being completely tone deaf. This is the same person who publicly brags about making $100,000 a month but then turns around to post TikToks about how she's so poor because she spends all her money on fabric.

Anyone who complains about how makeup can change how you look, need serious help. She doesn't look asian and I don't see how even with makeup or editing she does either. There's so much more to it than just changing your eye shape and if both types of races can get surgery to get what the other has, why should it be an issue? if she was changing her skin color, that would be way different, but all sorts of races are able to be born with mono or double lids. This isn't only an Asian trait, and I'm so embarrassed by how the US tryhard squad does this shit. It's makeup. If you can't tell it's makeup, you're an absolute idiot.

Amazonian Cos - a UK cosplayer so obnoxious and self-loving that Twitter suspended her - just won the Cosplay Crown and will not shut up about it. This is noteworthy because she has become even more vocal about her opinions as an authority on all things cosplay. It's more noteworthy because she's been called out in the past for fibbing about how much of this Sansa Stark cosplay she actually made herself. She took to Twitch a few months ago to complain that this was just her "haters" talking and it was fine that her stepfather heavily assisted in making the breastplate (the most impressive part of the cosplay) because it was too dangerous or she was unqualified. You can see him in the background of videos working on pieces by himself while she's elsewhere, grinding and firing it in other videos. It's unlikely she admitted this level of assistance to the judges considering how much she brags about this piece and how much she pushed back when people said she got too much help

Her new unsuspended Twitter is Megabethbob but she will tweet drama and immediately delete it if anyone gives her heat. Recent deleted hot takes include how she will run cosplay contests better than anyone else, Americans are ruining cosplay contests, and House of the Dragon plagerised their costumes from larpers.

She won back in MAY unless she won again recently. And other entrants might have had help. Theres no rules about having help. Everyone had the opportunity to have help to make their cosplays. Big name designers have teams in reality outside of cosplay. I don't understand this elitism that everything must be done by the wearer only. Fucking tired of this community. You're all just toddlers.

No. 263970

>>263955
I mean I agree that it shouldn't matter if you get a little help. But Crown is like BIG THING for crafters so it's more of a morality thing that someone won without making the biggest part of a costume themselves. She could have chosen a material she's "qualified" to operate the machinery for but she chose something that she knew she couldn't do herself, and then won the biggest crafting competition out there. Doesn't give a good look.

Can we prove that every single person but her had no help whatsoever? Otherwise this just sounds like people nitpicking because she won.

I don’t know if I’d call it the biggest part of the costume. The rest of the costume is very nice and there’s a lot of detailed embroidery and the crown is sculpted and casted. If she patterned and cut out the metal and then someone else did the welding with her direction I don’t think that’s too awful if she told them that. I’ve done some work with metal for jewelry making and doing the cutting and polishing is a lot of work, more so than soldering/welding.
I don’t know anything about her as a person so she might be a giant bitch and she might have lied. But it’s overall a very nice costume.

There's a big difference between a friend helping hold something and someone makes it for you while you're hands off. If she disclosed this to the judges that would be one thing, but she's been bragging nonstop about the metalworking difficulty and how hard she worked alone. This is no different from getting a 3d model from someone else and claiming you made it all because you printed it.

That happens all the time? A guy who won the costume contest at Dragon Con with a Buzz Lightyear costume was very open that he got the print files from a friend. Did he tell the judges? Who knows.

I can tell you that as a tog at MCM her name is mud. She was openly demanding togs photograph her. Even whilst in the middle of other shoots. And she was shouting in the nearby tescos to the poor cashier that she won the contest. No one else in the shop gave a shit or even heard of her before that.

Cosplayers are bitchy by default but they usually at least try to hide it. This bitch was screaming at people in public in full view of everyone. Clear mental issues.

I didn’t say I don’t care, but we also don’t know that she cheated. She may have been perfectly honest with the judges about what she did and didn’t do, but WE DON’T KNOW. Unless a judge comes out and says what they were told, we won’t know. If she’s posting about it publicly, it’s likely she was honest, because most competitions will absolutely revoke an award if they find out that rules were broken. Her stepdad welding the metal together because she wasn’t able to safely use that equipment would fall under help, not outsourcing. And if she made everything else on her costume independently, which it appears that she did, the judges may have still deemed it as being the best entry, even taking into account that she got help on it.
If there’s more information, please share it, but right now I don’t see any blatant cheating. If you have proof of it, email the organizers and tell them so she gets her award revoked. But right now, it just comes across as people being bitter that she won and pointing out that she admitted she got help with one aspect of one piece of the costume, with no evidence that she did not tell the judges this.

This is why most crafters don't like her. She picks fights all the time because she lives up her own arse regarding that Sansa dress. She often accuses other Sansa cosplayers of plagerising her if their leaf embroidery looks too similar to her own (pic related is a call out, with the actual Game of Thrones show dress they're both recreating on the right)

Behavior like that is why brushing her blacksmithing help under the rug is relevant.

the cosplay contest scene is getting crazy those days. I feel like there is a new "WORLD CHAMPION !!!" of cosplay every two weeks, so every title just seems to fall flat every time…I mean it's literally a minor international competition and almost all the contestants are from the UK ??

No. 264271

The only truly international competition is WCS really because they have representatives from most countries and pay for them to travel to the finals while pretty much every other competition requires you to pay your own way. Which ends up limiting who can afford to travel internationally to compete for something that, if there’s a cash prize, usually won’t even pay for the supplies for the costume itself, let alone travel.
The problem with cosplay competitions is that it’s very subjective on a lot of things; while some construction is objectively better than others, it becomes very hard to compare sewn costumes to armor costumes, as well as people who took creative liberties as opposed to a straight replica. And a lot of judges give higher scores to their friends.

WCS also puts less stock in the crafting and more in the performance. It's only gotten so popular because cosplayers are weebs who want to brag about going to glorious Japan. Not to say it isn't a good competition if that's what you're after, though, just that it matters less if you do your own welding or whatever versus a competition like Crown.

I agree that WCS is far less craftsmanship focused (I was actually shocked at how bad some of the costumes looked when some were on display at AX one year), my point is just that it’s probably the best as far as an actual international competition with lots of countries.

I went to a Japanese grocery store today to pick up some energy drinks and didn't expect there to be a Japanese festival. Cosplayers took the immediate chance to attend in costume.

this is some of the dumbest shit i've seen in a while. she doesn't even mention a contract, just "putting things on the dress" whatever the fuck that means. and not to mention dress rental is often extremely costly, with a lot of money spent on repairs and cleanings. plus, the cosplay itself doesn't look that good. cosplay sales groups are among the cringest parts of the community by far. they're a gold mine for bad cosplay photos and generally embarrassing behavior.

She means putting airtags on the dress to track it if it gets stolen. Pointless anyway since knowing where something went doesn't mean you'l get it back, just ask the thousands of people who've told police the location of stolen phones etc and were told "good luck, we can't do anything"

That's a ridiculous price, too. I could buy my own custom-made Aurora dress for $300 and wear it all I want, not just for three days and then have to worry about making sure it's clean and nothing is broken or torn in order to send it back to someone.
