Whats your favorite type of turtle?
Don't feed the troll.
Also, I can assure you westerners botch cosplaying much more than the Japanese. At the same time, a random magazine's removal of western cosplay from their galleria in every issue does not matter enough to rant. So I repeat, do not feed the troll.
We'll simply contrinue with our cosplay, let the Japanese continue with theirs, and enjoy in our own way. Who needs spotlight from a magazine we've never heard of anyway?

Now back to the main topic... Turtle dance tribute for the boss:
I find it very disgustingly ironic that many westerners would care so much and even complain about this issue when westerners themselves keep saying the reason they Cosplay are for fun and not to look like the characters they cosplaying. By caring so much with what the Japanese think about them are only showing the reason they Cosplay are not for fun but to look for attentions which can only be achieved by trying to look like the Anime characters they cosplaying, which made them as a bunch of disgusting hypocrites. Logically, when peoples doing something for fun then they will not care with what other peoples said about them, especially will not jealous then start saying all kind of nonsense about the one they are jealous of when other peoples said there are others who do better than them. I also find it very disgustingly ironic that westerners keep saying they Cosplay for fun while they keep making Cosplay competition or Cosplay look-alike contest in every Anime convention they make since 10 years ago to this day.
I just took a flight back to China and it wasn't pleasant, but upon opening this thread just when I logged in on the forum made my day even worse.
I mean seriously, dude? What the heck is wrong with you? You've got racism written all over your posts. Cosplay is truely and obviously for fun and those who do it well and actually look like the characters they're portrating are more passionate about it than others. There's no point on saying one has to look exactly like the character, that's just ridiculous.
I am Asian, and you my dear Asian are not making me happy with your so called Asian pride.
Troll, get a life.

Okay first. Shall we ban Halloween because it's racist? Cosplaying and dressing up for Halloween is absolutely no different. When people dress up as Hanna Montana they don't look like her. When people dress up as pumpkins they don't look like pumpkins. When people dress up as a ghost they surely are no where near resembling a ghost since I can clearly see it.
Also anime characters look more like Americans than anything. They are as white as can be when drawn and never have a rounded face like Asians typically have and are more narrow like Americans.
It really just comes down to the fact of not resemblance but rather. Americans can't use a sewing machine and usually make pretty crappy costumes. I work at an anime convention here in the US so I see all sorts of costumes pass before me. The better ones are typically made by the Asian population. And quite frankly they are more better with textiles than Americans are so it wouldn't be surprising.
But as actual features there's hardly any difference. It also comes down to the fact people have more of an Asian fetish than American fetish.
If all anime characters are Japanese, anime world hair dye sellers and plastic surgeons must make a mint.
That is all.

This is a Sig. It's horribly out of date.

This thread now has a rating of 6.0.
The racist aspect is absurd, and the magazine is one in many. If we can't even trust the skipper's topic, how can we trust his claiming that this is the last stand for western cosplayers in Japan?
