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

I hate this crimping fad that umbra has started. Sure it adds volume but at what cost
File: 1643566010915.png (1.93 MB, 956x1264, Screenshot 2022-01-30 at 17.53…)
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
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.
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

Anon Jessica has no talent even if she makes her own stuff now. At least with Yaya and Kamui you can recognize what they're cosplaying and see the quality. This is supposed to be a tauntaun.
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.

And she won the lawsuit because they stole her design to create their own molds. They even admitted it.
I know it's a national pastime for old cosplayers to shit on Yaya, but come on. I remember this rumor too that Yaya was going after poor widdle artist alley artists, but the actual case was about stealing product and molds like >>201239

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.
File: 1648593177609.png (163.76 KB, 1156x452, bunnysuitpatternsizing.png)
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

Yaya's said she's had to alter her own commercial bodysuit pattern before to fit her because of McCall's. And multiple people had the same problem with the bodysuit pattern having too much ease: https://thegeekyseamstress.com/2015/10/16/pattern-review-m7217/https://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/122754
McCall's dropped the ball on sizing with her patterns just deal with it.
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.

God yes. Lizard Leigh was already intolerable from their constant shilling of this Steven Universe transformation dress. Its now worse since they've made a huge deal about becoming a pRoFeSSiONaL cosplayer. Most of their videos are fake shocked Pikachu faces, begging for Kofi donations or gender zoomer content like pic related.
Lol well if she’s not making money from it, she’s not really a professional cosplayer is she?
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. Liz probably thought sooner genderspecials would give her money for existing

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.
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.

Fame Hungry thots defending each other as usual
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
kamui has a clear pattern of wanting all the credit for herself and none for others.

Samefag but personally I don't like that she shoved the credits she was forced to add under the hashtags. Everyone knows no one reads that shit. She could've added it up with her friends' credits but it looks like she's trying to hide it.
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.
Straight from the definition of what it means: "Non-commercial means you can't sell it, but you can 3D print it for personal use."
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.

It's not just a lack of credit, despite never crediting the sword modeler a single time until the Twitter call outs. Her posts are purposefully misleading and imply that they modeled it themselves. Pic related is her showing a paper mockup of the sword and many shots of Benni "working" in the 3d modeling software.
Dangerous Ladies is a business. She sells these models that she made from scratch. Just because you paint something doesn't mean you made it. It's like altering a cosplay smaller and then saying you made it just because of that. Benni did finishing work.>>241207
The og files are the files they bought. They didn't model anything.
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.
There's a difference between not crediting and implying you deserve the credit.
File: 1660930770541.png (77.95 KB, 878x785, commerical only.png)
Except her's say commercial only. That doesn't include editorial, or advertising.. Etc. She specifically labels her models for reproduction purposes only.
Samefag, but I just realized she is ALLOWING commercial use as well. So, the model can be used for anything as commercial is the only thing stated, but you can bypass that even as long as you keep paying for a model for each reporduction.
Is DL kind of stupid?
File: 1660931140051.png (110.1 KB, 1244x571, just checked.png)
Checked the pin specifically that is being argued about and she has the exact same thing under here. She isn't limiting the uses and is allowing copies as long as you pay for each print you are selling.

More very mature responses from Kamui. You'd think it's be easier to just say "sorry I'll be better at crediting".
“Do i have to credit the literal factory mass producing a pair of shoes i modified the same way im being asked to credit an independent 3D modeler who did majority of the leg work for accuracy that i only added some cheap LED’s and sanded the model after a 3D printing machine did all of the actual creating?”
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”
The picture with her scrote sitting with the model open on blender is especially egregious and obvious.

Kamui has been like this for years so I'm glad this 'kind and quirky cosplayer who makes everything herself' front is finally falling apart. She only cares about making money from cosplay and doesn't even cosplay to cons any longer. She even made a horrible Buy My Books Dress to wear as a guest for when people come to see her.
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).
Might wanna make that less obvious Theo.>>241471
Doesn't Kamui also despise sewing? Swear I remember that from an earlier post

I'm surprised nobody's mentioning the World Cosplay Summit drama.
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.
File: 1662564138037.png (1008.97 KB, 697x918, wcs.PNG)
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.

So Kamui publicly says she dislikes sewing and then chooses to depict seamstresses like hobgoblins in her latest lolquirky video.
She's a cosplayer. There's nothing in this about it being about seamstresses only because now even you've dumbed it down to being about cosplaying in general just like I did >>247952
You don't need to try and force milk, anon.
How do you interrupt week old milk that's getting a comment per day?
The idea behind the general thread was good but it's useless and dead when every single post ends up with infighting.
the german team who went (rainbowriders) posted a statement , were they bent over backwards to justify their participation, including personal drama with the former german WCS organizers. I knew both are infantile idiots and their dumb self rightous statement confirmed it.
If you know german, heres their blogentry:https://www.animexx.de/weblog/592939/16631034597762/
they choose to do HETALIA out of everything ? wow idk if I'm more impressed by the decision of trying to push the boundaries of the contest' rules or the sheer courage it takes to cosplay Hetalia on stage in year 2022.
But all that drama is quite interesting I must say. People in the West kinda forgets sometimes that there are countries where you can go to jail for a cosplay performance.(learn2sage)

Saya scarlet, a russian cosplayer known for cosplaying Hatsune Miku, went on twitter complaining about western accusations of rascism. She only released the tweets in (poor) Japanese so pardon the shit-tier translation.
I mean, it’s a little retarded to only tweet in Japanese when she’s Russian. But the girl leaving the comments is also retarded because no one gives a shit if you wear makeup with traditional Japanese clothes….. has this bitch never heard of gyaru? They wear tons of makeup with kimono. And I don’t know how having chains on her nails is disrespectful.
Russian cosplayers do dumb shit like blackface and then complain about getting shit on, but this girl doesn’t seem to be doing anything wrong. The retard on tik tok is cringier than her.

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.
The final was last week, you bozo. She qualified as the UK rep in May.
The way I see it half the problem is how much she praises her own work while putting down others. If she was a nicer person nobody would care but Amazonian has a bad rap for a reason.
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.
She IS outsourcing the construction if she can't operate the machinery.
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.
Costume contests almost always have some people who somehow win high prizes despite having seemingly mediocre costumes. Unless contests start releasing score sheets after the fact, we’ll never know why these people win.
May was the qualifier, she won the championship this weekend. The crown is a big deal for craft cosplayers and cheating is equally a big deal. You obviously don't care about contests or you'd know how qualifiers work.
Go back to the costhit thread if you don't see how cheating at the international championship is milky
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.

She may have been honest but this is a pretty cunty reply. Imagine your twitter name is just WORLD CHAMPION.

Lol okay I don't care if she cheated or not. This is the dumbest accusation ever. Bernadette based her red dress on historical garments, she didn't invent princess sleeves and a front opening.

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 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.
If she copied the OG dress why the fuck is she whining about someone copying her? She copied the og so it's literally the same no matter who is doing it. She needs to chill the fuck out.>>264271
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.
she won because black smithing is new. the same way a quick change won a comp then all entries had quick changes. same for smoke and LEDs and 3d printing and worbla.
she had a gimmick. metal work will be the next big thing for a year, she’ll screech about being copied then the next thing will come along and she’ll fade back into starting fights with randoms on twitter.
Wait, they do not provide this anymore? I wonder if our qualifier con covered the expenses for this years candidate then. Paying for your own travel and stay in this case is ridiculous.>>264294
Not sure if it's only my country, but Crown (back when it was Eurocosplay) was a pretty big deal and I think most of the euro countries were represented

Anyone know what's up? Comments weren't much help either. Shocking coming from this con.
It's still too niche for most people to really even get or care about.
2 bags with teeth in them…how is anyone supposed to get it was connected to that.
You're embarrassed? What's exactly embarrassing you.
The reaction felt more confused then scared by the people at that AA. It was a bad joke that didn't land.

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.
In the same vein why is renting cosplays such a big thing now? Because "fast fashion"? I'm not gonna wear a cosplay 80 people have worn, sweated in, and torn apart. It's so fucking annoying seeing sales groups flooded with rental posts, especially when they're only 1/3 in English with no details/sizes/prices and just a stock photo.
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.

Everything about this cosplay is cringe
