Thinking about how much better the forums would be if people left comments in threads half as often as just viewing them.
@Orbitz89: Welcome to Anime Vice, hope to see you around on the forums. I you need help with anything let me know.
Just thought I'd share this recent YouTube gem with you all in case you hadn't seen it yet. Strong language.
Gold I tell you.
Anyone who has never seen any of the "Awesome Series" before should check out their other videos, quality stuff.
@ReplicaRex: As far as I know the best way to search for cosplay is by going to a character page and checking the cosplay gallery. Cosplay images used to appear on the main page, but that was years ago, the Whiskey Media sites have changed a lot since then.
By the way guys, don't be afraid to just chat about cosplay in this thread in general. If there's a specific character you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if I can come up with anything.
I've rounded up a ton of Christmas cosplay, Merry nearly-Christmas:
I'll be starting a fresh Official Art thread later today to make it match the other image threads, thanks for all the images you guys have posted so far. I'll start it off with some festive Christmas images.
@takashichea: Thanks, you're always a great help taka. For a long time I've been meaning to post an image upload guide of some sort, so eventually I'll wrap all these guidelines up in some way. These threads are a good start though.
By the way, one of the images you posted is watermarked.
@ZombiePie: You'll get what you're given and like it.
Here's some Panty & Stocking cosplay:
@KuroNekoXIII: Told you I would. Some of those photos are a little small, make sure you're getting the highest resolution you can find (pro tip, drag an image into Google image search and it will find it in different sizes for you).
Just uploaded some pretty great Chie cosplay:
Have you added some cosplay photos to our wiki database recently? Don't leave them tucked away in the wiki! Show off all those fantastic photos of people pretending to be pretend people here, in the Anime Vice cosplay thread!
Photos of people dressed as anime or manga characters, simple as that. It's a fun thing to do at anime conventions.
Add cosplay photos to the "Cosplay" galleries on character and franchise pages. If it's a photo with multiple characters in it, add it to all of those character pages. Optionally, you can also add it do other pages that are appropriate, for example if you upload a photo of a cosplayer in a school uniform, you can also add it to the cosplay gallery on the school uniform page.
DO NOT add cosplay to anime series pages.
I recommend captioning cosplay photos like this: "Character name (by cosplayer name)" optionally you can add a word or two to describe the image, so sticking to the example above, a caption might be: "Saeko Busujima, school uniform (by Anji Makise)". For multiple characters, separate names with commas and use "&" instead of "and" to help shorten the caption, e.g; "Goku, Gohan & Vegeta (by Bob, Frank & Jack)"
Please post images using the small (single) or side-by-side (multiple) settings.
It keeps the thread tidy and organised.
Now share those images!
