I think this is a question many of have asked ourselves more times then we possibly should have.  Cosplay should be fun, cosplay should be accepting, cosplay should be so many positive things but sometimes there are just those bad apples, those little flaws, that end up scaring people away from such a wonderful hobby.There are so many reasons though sometimes people won’t like your costume because of the color of your skin, others won’t like it just because of your size, while others even believe that you should only cosplay characters that you resemble,even the cosplay photo locations. My personal opinion. cosplay whoever the heck you want.  I truly do believe though that the biggest reason why people don’t like a lot of your costumes is due to their own personal insecurities.  I have dealt with my share of this by having anonymous posts about me ranking on costumes that I spent hours, shed tears and blood into making and were so perfectly accurate but yet these people still made fun of me.  I used to be a skinner girl but due to life changes I actually gained a bit of weight and man have I heard so much from it.  Personally I don’t think my size should matter but some people say that I shouldn’t be cosplaying as anything due to being a tad bit overweight.  Yes it hurts my feelings, yes it makes me uncomfortable, discouraged and all the negative but will I stop?  NO, never stop what you love because of someone else.

I personally have a friend she is down in the photo who cosplays as a great version of yang from rwby and this costume is just absolutely amazing but she did at one point have someone try to insult her about it.  This person was running around telling lots of people that her costume wasn’t on point, it was extremely inaccurate and she didn’t look anything like the character and shouldn’t be cosplaying as yang. Her costume is so amazing though so why would anyone even dare to go about saying that you might be thinking. Well this leads me to the part where people get cruel when their insecure.

The person who actually went around talking so much about her costume, should have been more talking about themselves to be honest.Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against them everyone starts off somewhere and their a newbie. But I think he was very jealous and insecure since some of his costumes have some minor inaccuracy and he doesn’t resemble a lot of characters. In the end all in all I truly wish that this person would realize they don’t need to be insecure no one does.  The cosplay community is so welcoming and so nice.  Well at least the majority of it.  Of coarse you have those bad apples but people please just ignore them, have fun let them be sour sprouts.  I have totally met the best people I have ever met in my entire life through cosplay and anime conventions though.  I have met my best friend, who I love to death and I have also met my life partner through cosplay and can not wait to keep meeting and learning more.  I hope that this topic will inspire you who has read this to go out there and cosplay whoever and whatever you love and meet new people.  Always be careful but have so much fun, we only live once make the best of it through your passion, and I defiantly know that cosplay is mine.

Happy cosplaying to all!

My Big Wow Comic Fest 2015

This Post is submitted by Evel Fett Cosplay , amazing!

Day 1:

Big Wow Comicfest 2015 was held in the San Jose Convention Center on April 1819. This is one of my favorite conventions to attend. It is for true comic book fans and cosplayers.There had to be at least 5,000 people waiting to receive their badges the first day of arriving at Big Wow. The Big Wow staff was on point! Took about 15 min to enter and get into the site. The crowd was high with anticipation! There was everything from cosplay, geeks, nerds,and comic fans all awaiting for the door to open. The door opens and everybody rushes in like wild animals. “geeked out” and not knowing where to go first, I decide to hit cosplay roll to see the professional cosplayers booth. I saw one of my closes friends there, Vegas Power Girl (@VegasPG) Snapped some pics and chatted it up with her. I found out that she will be doing a panel on Sunday. I then interviewed her for Miccostumes.com. Then exchanging some kisses, I said bye, and moved on to the other awesome things Big Wow had to offer.

My favorite comic book illustrator Frank Cho. Greeting the wonderful Frank, we exchanged the great news that I am teaming up with miccostumes.com to be there Convention Reporter. As Frank high fived me he said “See all that hard work paid off bro!” Frank was teasing me and told me to not miss his panel, and i said “Frank I wouldn’t miss it for anything in the world.”I was then fighting through the crowd to go and try to see the Back to the Future Delorean, and the Ecto One from Ghostbusters. I snapped a lot of great pictures.

Next, I headed to the panels, the most important one for me was “Cosplay Stars”. It was a great panel and super informative. The panels was lead by some of the biggest stars of cosplay, and all I can say is you had to be there!

Day 2:

The crowds were bigger, the costumes were better, and anticipation was greater. I debuted my newest creation from Dragonball Z, Mr. Satan and my bro Mark was Ox king. We were huge hits! We could not go for one second without being stopped. Frank Cho’s panel was just unbelievable! He is not only the best artist that Marvel and Dc has ever had, but also the most hilarious guy alive. This year was a little different than most years, instead of Frank drawing or sketching Ivy Doomkitty, Frank drew cosplay superstar Riddle who was cosplaying as spider women.

Overall Big Wow is one of my favorite conventions and something i will never miss! It is definitely something that you have to see!

Cosplay Ideas- Phantom Thieves! (and their companions)

I’ve loved phantom thieves since I was a kid. Their fantastical flair and ability to steal anything from under anyone’s nose fascinate me to this day, even if their wild stunts do sometimes defy the laws of physics. Their fondness for theatrics are shown through the costumes they wear, which make them very fun characters to cosplay!

Without further ado, let’s begin!

1. KAITOU KID

Starting off with a classic and one of my favourites! Magic-obsessed teenager Kuroba Kaito by day, elusive-yet-showy thief by night, Kaitou Kid’s deft sleights of hand, outrageous tactics, and daring escapes (including driving a car out of a skyscraper window) have dazzled fans since 1987. Although it seems like he steals for the fun of it, Kid is actually trying to find and destroy a gem that grants immortality before the organisation that killed his father can get to it.

You can find him in the Magic Kaito manga, the 2014 adaptation Magic Kaito 1412, or the Detective Conan series (which is known as Case Closed in the US), where he often appears as a rival of the main character, Edogawa Conan.

Many of the side characters have fairly simple designs as well, so this is a great group cosplay idea for beginners!

Kaito’s childhood sweetheart, the energetic Nakamori Aoko

2. PHANTOM R

Another teenager in disguise, Phantom R is a thief slightly unlike his more traditional associates – he returns the artworks he steals! He only pursues treasures that may hold a clue to his missing father, and has no need to keep them if they do not prove to be useful. When he isn’t busy sneaking around in museums, the swift Phantom R spends the remainder of his nights jumping over the rooftops and theatre balconies of Paris with his pet dog Fondue as he evades the police force. The rollerblading police force. When he isn’t up to his usual hijinks as a thief, he prefers to flip pancakes and toss treats to Fondue to the beat of the music in this funky (and, sadly, obscure) rhythm game from Sega.


Plain (for video game standards, anyway) student Raphael is actually the notorious Phantom R


The skilful violinist Marie crosses paths with Phantom R one fateful night


The son of the police inspector who pursues Phantom R, Charlie Vergier is one of Phantom R’s rivals

3. KAITOU JEANNE

The 1998 manga Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (which saw an anime adaptation a year later) reveals the secret life of high school gymnast Kusakabe Maron. A modern day reincarnation of the French heroine Jeanne D’Arc, Kaitou Jeanne is Maron in her transformed phantom thief/magical girl state. Though, technically, she does not steal anything – she is on a sacred mission to save God which involves defeating demons that just happen to reside in artworks. After the demons are defeated, the artwork disappears so it seems like they were stolen. Thus, the public begins to call her a phantom thief.


Jeanne’s rival, Kaitou Sinbad. Unbeknownst to her, Sinbad knows of her real identity although she does not know his.


Jeanne and Sinbad’s companion angels, Fin Fish and Access Time.
