What exactly makes a cosplay 'bad'?
>>
>>10011896
whenever you wear it
>>
>>10011896
poor construction (bought cosplays that are wrinkled and shiny, loose threads, unhemmed skirts, uneven paintjobs), shitty wigs (no wig for anything other than a buzzcut, shiny, uncut or unstyled, cut or styled in a way that looks bad, frizzy, thin), and bad makeup (no makeup at all, instathot makeup on characters who are natural looking in canon, uneven lines, patchy facepaint)
>>
>>10011896
The person wearing it isn't attractive
>>
>>10011901
>no wig for anything other than a buzzcut
what did he mean by this? Agree with everything else though
>>10011896
also if you can't tell who the character is meant to be even if you know of the character
>>
>>10011984
I think he just meant that it's ok to use your real hair for characters that have a buzz cut or super short hair.
I think it can look fine to use your real hair for some costumes, just depends on the character
>>
>>10011984
>>10012172
wigs for all hairstyles other than buzzcuts. if you have a buzzcut, it will look better than a buzzcut wig, and it's not going to get greasy or fall out of place throughout the day like longer hair
>>
>>10011901
Huh?

When its just a wig.

I am deeply uncomfortable with how young she looks
>>
>>10027528
She's 20 already.

Fatass doing a skinny or fit character.

"Anyone doing something or looking a way me and my clique don't like."

>easy on the eyes cosplayer
>good construction
>decent accuracy
If you miss 2 of those 3 points, it's a bad cosplay.

You basically described Momokun in a nutshell.

I draw the line when I know the character but can't identify it without the person telling me.

Adding boobs to something that doesn't have boobs

Like Ana from overwatch
>>
>>10029382
KAnna kamui
>>
>>10029382
Ana has boobs though??????????????????????????
>>
>>10029394
Yeah she does
>>
>>10029394
I think anon meant making it slutty by showing cleavage or something
>>
>what makes a cosplay bad?
define cosplay. I like short and sweet: Being as accurate to the idea of a character.
You want to fit the looks and personality of the character, bring that character to life. So bad cosplay is being inaccurate to that.
Personal pet peeves:
>most closet cosplay (some are valid, most are lazy)
>unnecessarily sexualized costumes -- no, Peach wouldn't wear just a white pushup bra. this seems to be much more a girl problem than for guys but this does apply to both. Deadpool with only a mask and a red banana hammock, you know who you are.
>un-ironed clothes. this one's minor but we can tell when you just pulled it out of your suitcase!
>no wigs. 90% of characters require a wig because anime hair. In a few cases you can really stretch and make natural hair work, but by and large even a meh wig is better than natural hair. especially if youre not matching hair color!
>body type. I'm not going to call you a fat fuck but if you're cosplaying something like Yoko from TTGL and your fupa hangs down over your booty shorts, youre not being accurate to character. Also it probably smells like stale cheese under there.

These and posture. Posture before looks though, unless we're talking circus levels of obesity.
Also if it's just lewd near naked dress-up for internet points and attention whoring
>>
Not being Anzu doll like = Bad
If you look like Anzu = good
>>
>>10027528
Why?

thats a guy right ?

good lord, sucking anzu’s fat dick on an anonymous image board isn’t going to get you any closer to her
>>
>>10048294
>her
>>
>>10011896
Poor choice of character (Narutard)
Poor deguisement (Shitty Hair)
Poor body (Fatass)
>>
>>10048708
>implying anzu isn’t a cute girl (boy)
>>
>>10029409
Google nuns, then google sexy nuns. there you go
>>
>>10011896
When the costume is actually made badly unironically or when anyone and their mother think they can cosplay Dva just because that bought a spandex suit.

Piercings/tattoos. Why are piercingfags like this in general? Like, if you're going to stab your face full of holes at least take them out for cosplay or cover them up with tattoos, but most of the time they're too desperate to show them off and look 'quirky kawaii punky desu!'
>>
>>10011896
When people wear 0 make up with cosplays, it takes like a minute to put some foundation on and your entire look will look so much better
>>
>>10027323
that's so shopped, it hurts
and she looks like shes 12. gross.
>>
>>10050764
>>10027528
Both of you have a deeply skewed perspective of what a child looks like. Please go outside or look at some actual photos of children in swimsuit catalogues for reference.
>>
>>10029514
>un-ironed clothes
>minor

>>10027323
Honestly the one sock that's rolled down is triggering me more than anything else.

>>10050003
>they admit it's because they're lazy
Hey, that's the easiest route to making a shitty cosplay.
>>
>>10011896
>ebay bought spandex/lycra/zentai mass-produced bodysuits
>bad wigs
>oversexualizing characters for no reason other than attention
>not actually knowing the source material (not playing the game/watching the anime/reading the book)
>wearing lingerie and a wig then calling a photoset "Boudoir", passing it off as cosplay
>>
>>10028384
This
Also, tattoos and piercings on characters that don't have them
>>
>>10050992
>look at some actual photos of children in swimsuit
ewwwwwww no
>>
>>10051248
Children are disgusting?
>>
>>10011896
Fat
Cheaply made costume/closet cosplay
Unstyled wig
No makeup
Wrinkled, generally messy
Shitty shoes
These are the most common offenders.
>>
>>10027528
>>10050764
She doesn't look that young to me at all, children don't have wide hips and don't wear lipstick.
>>
Be fat.
>>
>>10051248
There's nothing sexual about children in a swimsuit.

Right, anon? Right?

>>10051481
Same, but it was only the face that read "kid" to me.
