With comic con season in full swing, the Food and Cosplay team have got together to discuss topics about how we wish to strive and better the cosplay community. One thing that we can all agree needs to be addressed is the level of respect shown to cosplayers. In today’s post, we are talking about what you shouldn’t say to a cosplayer.
Where is your prop?
Not everyone has the time, money or need to have all or any of the props for a costume! Only you can decide how much you want to put into your cosplay and how you want to wear it.
That’s the wrong colour
Whether you put your own spin on it or can’t quite get it exact, you’ve still done it to the best of your ability.
Did you buy that?
It doesn’t matter if you bought it or made it, you’re still showing your love for the character and that’s what really matters.
I don’t know this version?
Doesn’t make it any less valid if people don’t instantly recognise it, you know it!
That’s the wrong hairstyle for that character
Regardless if it a wig or natural hair, styling a hair to the exact style is hard, just like cosplay. It’s not a failing if they can’t get the exact same look.
