Does anyone think cosplay being pushed into the normiesphere is ruining the aspect of the community? The point of it is to do it in areas where it makes sense: conventions and parties. And at ren fests. However, we have this growing culture where they are forcing it into more normie areas. not only is this a awkward, but it's only making an embarrassment out of the hobby to begin with. We do this to have fun, but we have people who do cringe stuff like walking around normally in it like it's fashion. Or worse, doing photoshoots and poses in the middle of malls and such.

Letting normalfags into any hobby is always a bad idea. Everyone thinks they want mass acceptance and widespread popularity for their hobby, but it's always a bad thing. It's pure monkey's paw bullshit.
>>
>>10808412
oh no! muh secret club!!!!!
>>
>>10808467
more like cringe club
>>
>>10808412
I bet the guy on thr right has a fat cock.
>>
>>10808472
if he's taking steroids, not really
>>
>>10808476
Guy on the left looks pathetic, but guy on the right is huge and lumpy in a way that just standard body building and training doesn't do.
>>
>>10808476
What do you think it tastes like?
>>
>>10808412
i've never seen anyone cosplaying outside of a convention what are you talking about

>t. lolita

>>10808491
are you counting lolita as cosplay?
>>
imagine gatekeeping cosplay
>>
>>10808509

I'm just salty that when I was into cosplay I was made fun of and harassed at cons/school. Now we have big tiddy Staceys and fat cock Chads dressing up looking all hot and making me look lame again because I'm not as fit or good looking.
>>
>>10808509
No one is gatekeeping shit. The problem is that the people doing cosplay is doing cringe shit with it.
>>
>>10808622
>No one is gatekeeping shit.
That is literally what the first post is doing.
>>
>>10808678
No it isnt. Reread nigga.
>>
>>10808589
what are you doing if youve been in this hobby longer yet newbies are already showing you up?

you cant gatekeep if you just naturally suck at it
>>
>>10808709
tbf older cosplay holds no candle to the shit we do today
>>
Left unironically has a normal body that wouldn't look too bad under a shirt but he's mogged so hard by right that it makes him look downright obese. Poor dude.
>>
>>10808679
I reread it, it's still gatekeeping.
>>
>>10808711
the soul of pre-2012 anime cons vs today's anime cons is just night and day.
i'm convinced jessica nigri was the first warning sign. and maybe that chun-li bitch that would post her tits and ass hanging out then complained when people liked her tits and ass hanging out.
>>
>>10808756
jessica changed the game for sure. I was skeptical when cosplay started to become "popular." It went exactly the way video games: ruined it.
>>
>>10808756
>maybe that chun-li bitch
Yaya?
Either way, I agree. The camwhore-ification of cons leds to the rise of twitch tiddy streamers, onlyfans, and simp culture.
>>
>>10808759
That was already going on. What happened is that chaturbate and stripper culture flowed into cosplay.
>>
>>10808476
that's not how steroids work dummy

I just want to be a dweeb in cosplay. I don't want to compete with hot people in cosplay.

lost his job and no longer a millionaire being a degenerate in Japan. Also kicked out of Japan.
>>
>>10809839
>lost his job
He never lost his job. He still works in same company https://aberimo.ch/team.html
And he was listed there many years back. Yes, including the time he tweeted about him supposedly getting fired from DHL or whatever parcel delivery service it was. That story about him working as parcel delivery guy was obvious pure bullshit. He would never earn enough to get such apartment and several truckloads of gadgets, games and manga/anime stashes working such shitty job.

Is this my future.

>>10809840
good old mp! yeah, he has been a special case
>>
>>10808589
the answer is onlyfans
normalfag whores realized they can make money off their shitty cosplays and now its 60% of the entire medium
>>
>>10808709
He literally said why. Being very attractive will always garner more attention and praise, even if the actual cosplay is less impressive/well-made.
>>
>>10808509
Yes. I am imagining that.

Agreed. I had been cosplaying since the late 90s and the only change I saw between 1997 - 2002 was that people were becoming more ME FIRST before the show/game had come out.
There was sexy cosplay but it has stayed consistent in number and the people who did it also did other things.

Then came ass and tits. People who would be considered just pretty figured out they could be gorgeous at a con. Fuck actually having skills, that was now secondary. Pay for someone to make your cosplay, conveniently "forget" to mention it was commissioned on most of your social media, enjoy popularity.

Repeat a few times.
Move on to asking your fans who like your tits to pay for your cosplay.
Repeat a few times.

Use the money to fund your life.


Add in a little whine of "People who buy cosplay are cosplayers tooooooo. Stop gate keeping meeeee!"
And you are done.

You have single handedly changed an interesting display of skill into a subpar display of breasts and butts.

>>10810550
Cosplay at its core is a vanity hobby, so it was bound to become this eventually.

Do we now? Where?

I've been to loads of malls and I've never seen anyone dressed up as Deadpool vs Batman or whatever so again I've no idea what you're talking about

I know that she would just starfish but I want to hire Nigri to be by GFE hooker for a long weekend. Just blast loads in all her holes and suck and fuck.

Photoshop doesn't apply to real life anon, just find any other fat cracker and you'll have the same experience

The fame is the appeal retard.

It makes you appreciate the girls who wore skimpy cosplay back in the day without doing it for monetary gain
