I think that cosplay is a creative display of passion towards something that the person who dresses up enjoys. I do not have any issues with cosplayers, but I know several people who hate cosplayers with the passion of a thousand suns.

 It is a expression of their passion for anime/manga....get over it, all of you cosplay haters

I'm gonna have to completely agree with Tom on this one.  I'm fairly new to the idea of cosplaying and don't completely understand its motives, so if anyone who does cosplay cares to enlighten an ignorant mind feel free to tell me about it. I will say, after reviewing some of the cosplayer's photos (i.e. the ones of the half-naked hotties (HEY, I'm a single guy, sue me, XD)) I'm very quickly becoming a fan.

Cosplay is cool and all, but still it strikes me as a little weird. The good cosplayers, and I mean like the professional ones are amazing. Then you have the good ones, then there is the bad, and ughh, the ugly...but let's not go there... I still think it's neat and all, but I have to confess they are a bit intimidating. It almost was like they look down on you for some reason or another. I don't really understand it, maybe the conventions I've been to just had a bunch of jerks though.

That might be what it was, when I went to a convention and asked to take photos of cosplayers they were all cheerful and nice about it. Had a good time.

I think it's alright. I remember seeing some Stormtroopers and a couple guys dressed up as the Ghostbusters at a convention once, and I thought they were cool. I'd consider doing it myself if I was creative and resourceful enough to pull it off.

@ShadowKnight508: You are my Hero! SIEG ZEON!

I Cosplay for the lulz, with my body type I cannont make the characters I like, so I make the ones that are going to be the funniest or more nostalgic to others, so they want to take pictures. I dont tend to use the character personality unless for photos, the rest of the time I dance and pounce around like a freaking maniac (not exactly) to get a smile in the people attending to the convention, and do almost anything they ask me. I go to make other people enjoy so I can enjoy the conventions, and my last cosplay got at least a hundred Abridged Series References...
