Some people have asked where this “great idea” sparked from. There’s several sources, actually, so might as well give a quick breakdown.
1. I’ve known people who have been the blunt of the jokes. I’ve been the blunt of the jokes. I have friends that are absolutely amazing and talented, but because they’re bigger in size, they’re told they “automatically fail”. I’ve been told I fail because I’m not busty and am extremely skinny. We are all human. We all work on ourselves. We should all be happy and having fun with what we do. Being constantly made fun of makes that hard, and most of the time, it’s by people OUTSIDE of the cosplay community.
2. I was linked to a blog several friends of mine had been rated as the “Hottest Cosplayers”. It was obvious whomever had made this list had never talked to any of the people on there. Names were listed weird, costumes were incorrectly labeled, ad everything was bout their body appearance. They could care less about how awesome the costumes were, as long as the were… “hot”. I then made a joke about making a cosplay blog with a brain. And now, the joke has become reality.
I will continue to post for the community, since it’s been deemed a great idea. I appreciate the amazing and somewhat overwhelming feedback. I’ve got tons of idea to put into play, so please continue to watch for more.
