100% cringe (get ready to be interrogated or get pictures taken of/laughed at), but the based part is when you don't give a fuck and do what you want. it's both

I remember theres used to be a Naruto cosplayer that went to the local theme park like, all the time.
They were somewhat of a local legend and pretty much every kid that went there within a certain time frame remembers them.

>>10459350
Cosplay in public is frowned upon in Japan. You have to change at the convention so you don’t ride the train dressed in cosplay.
>>
>>10459341
Every time I cosplay in public like going to a restaurant after a con, normal people who don't know whats going on a few blocks over always ask for pictures. I love it

One time i wandered into a sewing convention that happened to be in the same building as the con i was at, all the old ladies loved our handmade costumes and took pictures.

i once cosplayed in public solely on the basis of getting food cause conventions are overpriced, and god the sheer fucking scale of 12 y/o bootlickers and middle aged confusion was immense

Cosplaying in general is cringe. That's why nerds like it. You revel in how much of a geek you are around other like-minded geeks. Making normies go "wtf why is that weirdo dressed like a cartoon" is part of the fun.
>>
>>10459397
Cosplayer isn't a boy. It's some bitchy half-asian cosplayer from the UK who calls herself Rinuyii.

Based, probably, but that's not what I feel when I see it. What I feel is jealousy because it isn't me.
Especially when I see cosplayers at the local store saturday evening, and you just know they're gonna have an awesome sleepover with anime and pocky and cosplay.

cringing is just a reaction that people have who aren't developed emotionally. i bet it has something to do with being bullied as a kid and they feel like that person should feel shame, when in reality the rest of us are just having a good time doing whatever we want

I'm not necessarily saying cosplayers in public are, but the two aren't mutually exclusive.

I’ve never seen a character with a pink/white/blue color palette that is actually supposed to be trans. I hate that a very cute color combination has been hijacked by the trans pride flag.

It's whatever. I like to wear stuff that characters wear casually (like Ryuji's yellow shirt from P5) but I wouldn't do an entire outfit. That would be kinda weird.

Unless, of course, there's an event or an occasion or something. If I'm going to a con, ofc I'll wear it.

On the last day of his Japanese class, one of my friends cosplayed as Inuyasha. I didn't know, I was just in the same building at the same time, and happened to walk past him and laughed at seeing my black friend wearing the robe of the firerat and then laughed harder when he said it wasn't an event or anything, he just wanted to wear it on the last day.

...if said cosplayer looks good and is attractive.

That's just logic, all fashion no matter how retarded, catches on when someone attractive starts doing it, ironically cosplay is becoming more and more accepted by the main stream because of good looking cosplayers like Belle Delphine, and Hit or miss girl.

If you're cute and look good and put effort into your cosplay of course people are going to look at you, but they'll be thinking
>"damn, such a brave person who goes against the grain, I admire them"
vs when an ugly person does it and people will think

I don't see how it matters honeslty. As long as you aren't bothering others to do their day to day it shouldn't matter. Though I don't think I'd yank a seat in cosplay, just stand since your shit will take up extra space

I get told by tons of people "NO ACTUALLY YOU NEED TO DO X", even though I've gone there dunno like 10-15 times?

Anyone who deviates extremely from the norm is cringe. Trannies, goths in Merilyn Manson boots, cosplayers. If you dress like a clown, people will think of you as a clown no matter what you tell yourself to cope. "It's not cringe, it's based! People who cringe are emotionally damaged because they were bullied!".
If your face is covered then who cares, no harm done.

Depends on a few things: Time, place, and whether or not your body type is right for the character you're trying to cosplay as. Once, I was rolling through my local grocery store, and it was near Halloween. One of the cashiers was cosplaying as Inuyasha. It was then that I knew which register I was using on my way out the door cuz this guy nailed it.I only wish I had a pic to share of it.

>D-do you cosplay in public in Japan?
Yes, why not. Only a few people really actually care, most tend to be other tourists who feel the need to get offended for others.
>Isn't it actually illegal?
No who told you this?. I mean if you are doing it in a public street as a show for cash on a tourist visa, I guess? But that would be more of a visa things.
>Also very looked down upon by people, you're giving tourists a bad name
Who told you this because that person wanted a pose I just offered to pick them up for a photo. Just don't take up train spots with your cosplay, yeah pretty sure it would be a dick move to go in a full outfit at 815AM trying to get to somewhere in a glittery dress cramped with people all around you trying to get to work. Off hour or late train, who cares just stick clear of the doors and offer up your seat stand when you can.
>>10496983
Senso-ji is hardly that famous, it's a big tourist attraction for sure but it's not as famous as comparing it to the Eiffel Tower; and since sensoji closes early not really that big a deal when taking a picture across from a burger king. You aren't just a weeb right, actively done historical research on Japan so you know that the real temple was bombed to another realm. Also that's the street facing part right by the photo op place across from the Burger King, pretty sure no one cares. This isn't like the nuclear memorial down in Hiroshima or me visiting the edo musem to look at the japanese surrender while in cosplay getting selfies with some kinda maga hat on or shit.
>with zero effort
This implies most people in Japan just don't also order something online then touch it up when done. Far more practical. Most people just like to have fun, just be mindful of others. There are def some people who take their cosplay as a profession and do so from my ventures to comiket and such, but that's usually why I stick out of the pro cosplay scene, no fun anyways since can't chill with locals.

Dunno where you get this from since most of my best friends I've made have been shooting the shit at bars, steak houses, onsens, and other places about anime, touhou, and music. By all means you are free to share your experiences, I'm actually still friends with a few of my facebook friends who do cosplay in japan, actually make doujinshi/music, and just love the cosplay. There is one vendor in akihabara each time I go who sets aside touhou shit just for me when I come so meh. Sorry you feel that way of needing self validations about your hobby from others to do what you like. No one really cares about cosplay, like I said, unless it's some huge fluffy dress with glitter and riding the busy hour trains while ignoring the gender cars and expecting people to move for you, no one cares. Just use the Metro on off hours and not the JR lines for those who are in hurry.

Who gives a shit if the internet stigma is 'they look down on otaku' because the term you are looking for is hikkomori, not otaku. Feel free most people I've met like it for a laugh and conversation, please do tell us you experiences in japan with locals outside of the tokyo yamanote loop.

Damn the salt here. You're free to inform me where you got this from during trips in Japan, because most the time this kind of mentality/attitude comes from weebs trying to show their e-peens off on 'how much they know about japan so once they go they will be *unlike the other tourists* to locals'. It's all a bunch of shit anon, look at shibuyameltdown or actually experience it for that matter, you'll see some person in a cosplay walking around has 0 affect on the day to day. I mean yeah, probably shouldn't walk around Tokyo station stopping in the middle of things for pics, or use main streets where people are in hurry.
You're free to list out the places in Japan where you had this confirmed for you, the +10 times I've been most people don't care. Sure someone will always laugh at you in cosplay, but that happens everywhere; Japan isn't some mythical city on the hill.

>Nobody finds this endearing besides your equally cringey otaku friends.
Not trying to make any statement, just have fun you know like most people want. Most my Japanese friends I've made are at conventions, run bars, small time singers, or weebs like people on cgl themselves. Not sure what point you are trying to make here anon but hope you if/when you go to Japan you have a good time cosplaying.

Actually, I don't cosplay but dress very excentric, and I don't give a shit about what people say.
Plus, I'm an old man. IDC, I just want to have fun.

TOTALLY AGREE!!!

Not like I'm cosplaying, but I go out with really excentric clothes, sometimes with white or yellow contacts, black scleras, big hats, bandages in arms just for the sake of laughs.
>>
>>10459341
it's really simple
like many things, it's based if you're cute and/or hot, and cringe if you're not
>>
Basically I went through a lot of crowded stations dressed like this, through places people would never know what a cosplay is. It's based.

I saw a really shitty Naruto waiting for a tram at 11:30pm outside CRX last year and didn't get to take a pic but that shit was fucking funny.

I think everyone should take part in public cosplay. I dont know why the world is boring with pants and shirt all the time, literally can wear anything all day and make the world a more fun place. It's not illegal , and a lot more expressive. People are fucking boring without it. Even the bible said to enter the kingdom of heaven, think like a child. You wanna be treated like a princess? Dress like one.
>>
I have this theory that if gods exist and are aware of you they will believe you. That is to say, if you walk around dressed like spiderman, you might be the only one, they may believe that into existance and then you are spiderman. Pants and shirt? Piece of shit piss and shit

You know that's sensjo ji right, and that's outside the temple grounds right, you know it's not in the temple, you know that's right by the bus tour offload section right, and I am sure you know there are like a billion shrines/temples all over. I obviously should have made way for the mario kart racers whizing by the place, I'm sure people dressed as princess peach and yoshi driving a go cart infront of the temple were way way more in tune with the situation.

>Dunno where you get this from since I only associate with people who have the same interests and hobbies as me which exclude me from the majority of society but my opinion and the opinion of my tiny circle of associates who also enjoy my hobbies is that everyone enjoys my hobbies and I will not accept any other opinions because it would then shatter my massive ego that I am just a bloated white elephant used as a freak show for the delighted Japanese audiences.

I fucking hate foreigners like you who give everyone else a bad name. People do care, they just won't say anything because 建前 prevents them, but I assure you they fucking bitch behind closed doors.

> the term you are looking for is hikkomori, not otaku
No it isn't. Otakus are just as derided in Japanese society as hikikomori are except you don't have to look at hikikomori.

You are a side show to the Japanese and they find it hilarious because they know that eventually you'll go home and your country has to deal with you and they can get back to their normal lives without having to worry about retarded foreigners shitting the place up.

no it's not. it's just against comiket rules to cosplay in the venue so most people will change after they are done inside and stay in the cosplay area till they go home.

You're so far off it's unreal. The colors are clearly meant to invoke toxicity/ venomous animal coloration. At least use something from Pokemon that matches the colors or an actual example like the Karate King turned Beauty in Gen VI

Cosplay in public isn't banned, it can be told that "no you can't do the monorail in cosplay" or "no you can't do photo shoots in the vendor floor" is stuff, but it isn't banned.

>>10521885
>Confirmed retard. It is illegal in Koto especially around comiket time,
t. never been
>>
>>10523446
Cosplay as a whole is technically illegal in almost all of the civilized world as a whole, but it's almost never enforced. Cosplay breaks copyright laws that exist almost everywhere, and Japan wouldn't need any special laws against cosplay for it to be banned. All they'd need would be to enforce laws that already exist in the rest of the civilized world as well.
>>
>>10523534

Cosplay is transformative and is allowed under fair use laws, dipshit.
>>
>>10523582
The US are the only country with fair use laws, which is what I had in mind when I said "almost". And even then, almost all Americans I've seen on the internet misunderstand fair use. Fair use does not mean you're free to make fanart. It applies to parody and educational stuff, it does not apply to generic fanart. And no, "parody" and "copy" are not synonyms. Parody is a form of expression where you make some sort of comment on the original work. It is not a parody if you simply copy the original work for yourself. So I'm not certain even fair use laws would apply to cosplay.

The law does not make a distinction between doing something for profit and doing it because you are a fan, either. That's an idea that fans have, but it's not true. Just because you do it for free does not mean you are allowed to do it. You do have companies shutting down fan projects that are free, and they have the legal right to do it too.

If cosplay is legal, then it should also be possible for Disney to have Pokemon characters walking around in Disneyland, without asking for permission, because it'd be the same laws that apply.

If you're going to be REALLY nitpicky, you could say that it's not cosplay that's illegal per se, and it isn't, but it is illegal if you haven't asked the property holders for permission.
I think that's what I've heard is the case in Japan, you need a cosplay license from the owner of the work you're cosplaying from. Could be false, but to be on the right side of the law, that would be required in every civilized country, not just Japan either.
>>
>>10523588
>The US are the only country with fair use laws,
Uh.... no.
EVERY FUCKING COUNTRY with copyright laws also has fair use laws. You would be surprised at how FUCKING EXTENSIVE (uh, I mean, "detailed") those are in some European countries.
The only countries with no fair use laws are the countries which do not recognize copytright anyways.

So what they do the same as literally every other single country on earth? No fucking shit, did you not assume I knew this already? Only a complete baka would have to be that stupid. Come on anon. Who cares if someone laughs at you, 7 billion or so people here
>Otakus are just as derided in Japanese society as hikikomori are except you don't have to look at hikikomori.
yeah that's cool and all to say online but at the end of the day no one really cares other than an off chance they go "oi did you see that silly foreigner cosplaying? what an idiot!" which is about the same talk as you'd get anywhere. Travel more there anon, once you realize it's all the same shit you say fuck it as well.
> without having to worry about retarded foreigners shitting the place up.
You've never dealt with Koreans in Japan or Chinese I take it while in Japan trying to do literally anything related to travel(and nothing in Harajuku I take it). Besides most the time the places I go are no name towns off the shin osaka route so it's kinda fun just to hang out with ji-san and stuff shoot the shit with some beers and make funny gintama references. Some of my best memories are just drunk as cirno and watching gintama with the bar in gifu.

>>10517773
congrats on capping the cringiest post of that thread my fellow anon.

10523588 (not even giving that moron (you)s
Fun fact: you CAN go costumed as Pikachu in Disneyland. What you can NOT do is to go costumed as a Disney character in DIsneyland unless you are a child. Nothing to do with copyright laws - such a costumed adult could be mistaken for a park employee. Nothing to do with copyright, and if you as an adult dress in a way that is plainly evocative of a Disney character (even in such a way that would be grounds for a copyright demand if you were a character in a non-Disney movie) but are clearly NOT dressed as that character (a public favorite being almost Han Solos) they don't give a shit.

EVERY FUCKING THING that moron says is wrong. Don't respond to bait. /cgl/ has already enough drama with the fighting over photoshop and body weight.

You're pretending like Japan isn't one of if not the most heavily normative culture in the entire world to the point parents deliberately starve and negliglect their mentally ill children because their children bring shame on the family because they're different and this isn't a once off occurence.

It's a culture where children, up until 1997, were considered mentally ill if they didn't want to go to school.

It's a culture where hikikomori is a genuine national problem because people are so fucking sick of pressures of Japanese life.

It's a culture where you have wait, potentially hours, for all your colleagues to complete their work before you can go home otherwise you might make htem feel bad and you'll look disloyal to the company.

It's a culture where companies do have blacklists of ex-employees that they share with each other to make sure you drink the kool-aid which includes people who don't want to go to nomikai, don't want to do needless overttime or want to be employed on merit, not seniority.

It's a culture where any hair that isn't black will get you reprimanded in any serious job.

Stop pretending like Japan isn't unique in it's normative culture. It's one of the reason Japan is the way it is.
>>
>>10523883
>You're pretending like Japan isn't one of if not the most heavily normative culture in the entire world
Please for the love of fuck go to some of the other countries or rural parts of china, eastern europe or stuff. Like damn son.
>didn't want to go to school.
So same as in SEA, China, Korea, and most asian countries?
>pressures of Japanese life.
Ah good to know that Korea never had this problem ever, nope shut ins only exist in Japan.
>hikko
Otaku is basically the same as calling someone a nerd, I'm sure in anime it's still being gone over as EHHHHHH OTAKY EWWW. But it's the same shit as being called nerdy, hikkomori is way farther in the dumb end of the spectrum. Otaku is so overused it's basically lost all meaning.
>for all your colleagues to complete their work before you can go home otherwise
Do contracting, if Kanji san wants to make me work late tell him to contact my agency and buy more hours. Good thing some of us have worked there and know how to deal with that shit. You ever do it?
>do have blacklists of ex-employees that they share with each other
So thankful nothing like LinkedIn does this... oh wait
>reprimanded in any serious job.
Source needed that isn't source: trust me, seem plenty of foreigners and other people working and making livings well in the IT and engineering degree with fuck all of their hair. You mean the PR people or some shit?
> It's one of the reason Japan is the way it is.
Never said it wasn't, basically pointing out it's not really the mythical city on the hill where no wrong is done. Japan is fine but once you go to china a few times, korea, or some other shit. You really just lose those vacationer/grass is greener eyesight and don't care as much.

It's just japan, it's unique yes but that doesn't mean it somehow has no faults and is perfect and that's how it works in japan because I saw a post on gaia and watched some vlboggers on niconico.

>>
>is cosplay in public cringe or based?

I really don’t care when I see it. Being exposed to niche hobbies my entire life has desensitized me to whatever people do. If it doesn’t hurt anyone, and it doesn’t involve me, I don’t care when I see it. I guess I just don’t think too hard about this kind of thing; I see teenagers wearing AOT jackets and wigs at malls in my area periodically. Anime is kind of everywhere now, so I think most young people sort of understand it by proxy of being exposed in some way, be it walking past a hot topic in the mall, flipping through TV channels, hearing friends talk about nerdy interests, etc
>>

>>10524472
Germany's Copyright Act contains a chapter including several specific provisions limiting the scope of rights for the copyright owner with respect to lawfully permitted uses. For instance, such lawfully permitted uses refer to collections for religious use, newspaper articles and broadcast commentaries and, most importantly, the reproduction for private and other personal uses.
TL;DR: They do not *CALL* it "fair use", but this IS a fair use clause, Anon.

Been in Japan enough and such with work, cosplay, and just boredom that kensama's like this actually believe what is posted there. Poe's law is a bitch at times; and the post is stupidly close to reality of shit I've dealt with.
During my times I've been to japan for work/life/vaca/etc times in japan I've seen it all even though they :know how japan works. I have stories from lolita's not knowing how to use the female only cars from 7-9am to people unsure how to buy fucking cheeseburgers and glue.

You'd be surprised how fucking inline with shit I've dealt with in Japan is given what anon posted. I've dealt with cosplaying in public being the greatest sin on earth while in Japan, then I ask what parts and it's met with silence or "well my first time but...."

Last time I was in Japan I met up with some dude from CGL who I thought would know some shit about cosplay, nope just wanted to film gothic lolita and buy fate doujins+other loli shit. Went to a show with him and it was nothing but gothic lolita's and "the people they knew in Japan" were like 4 ESL teachers and some germans, it was like BRUUUUUH.

>So 'cosplaying is illegal in glorious neepon' crwod can you cite us an example of an existing law in japan making Cosplay illegal?
It's not, the only thing illegal is actively doing cosplay for money on main streets. Example: can be asked why you are doing optimus prime in akihabara station while singing songs; but can't be for just walking around as reimu, BNHA, etc. You might be barred from entering some train cars during rush hours; e.g no Inuyasha cosplay on the 5PM train home for people with his big sword.
>Temporary ordinance or otherwise and NO saying 'But Japanese people will call you Meiwaku!!' I don't care. Give me your source or shove it into your asshole
No one cares, like literally. Someone will always complain to/about you.

Just make sure when you cosplay you do basic shit like not use JR lines during busy hours, know when the main strip of akihabara opens up to cosplay/markets/festivals, and not to intrude on people who don't know what it is. I'd never go in a steak shop unless I knew the owner and wanted to shoot the shit with them about 2hu and dress in cosplay unless I had them on line/facebook soon.

Japan can be fun just don't be a dumby.

If I get to know someone is wearing cosplay just randomly as daily clothes that's cringy. I don't judge strangers because I don't know which of the two it is, unless it's very obvious, then I judge according to what I just wrote.
