looks like cosplay's really popular nowadays. people get to become their favourite characters. but there's a trend, that is 'crossplay' among the cosplayers, where girls dress as guys and guys dress as, uh, girls? ew. i don't mind if it's a pretty guy, but imagine that someone with arnold schwarzenegger's body(big and bulky) dressed in Yuna's(FFX2) costume, really looks insulting to the characters he dress as.

what do ya all think about crossplay?

for example: SERIOUSLY THIS IS A GUY!

At least this way i wont scorn them for spoiling my fav characters.
just a few years back there was a legion of pot belly bastards who went public in sailormoon outfits...and all of them are hairy, smell like stale beer, oh well you get the message.

Girls are ok, because generally a lot of the girls can do cosplay for male characters like those from shoujo manga which are generally more beautiful than manly anyway, I once saw a good example of Air Gear's Agito dressed up by a girl, and she looks just like the real thing too. So females yes, males...you guys better look like it or else....I will burn you alive.

I find crossplayers inspirational myself. They're making a statement that the general society today dosn't openly accept people that crossdress. Which is true, I myself don't see the problem with it. Girls dress like guys on a daily basis, why shouldn't guys have the right to wear a dress or skirt if they feel like it? I don't find it offensive at all, but then again I'm usted to it. Cosplaying itself is artistic expression as I see it, and with that I don't think that someone should be limited to how far they can let their imagination go.

If a guy decides to crossplay and looks good or passible I'd urge him to crossplay more often.

And that picture is absolutely adorable~

but i am all for supporting cosplay normally, just plain cosplay is good enough, usually girls can do both sides, but when it comes to guys you can hardly find one who is good enough to look feminine like the one i shown.

I like it when they are playing the roles that are their own gender. This way, like this Renji, looks damn cool and real.

I prefer the real thing than cosplaying, but cosplaying is technically fun. Haha. Ironic. xD
I've never tried hands-on experience with these costumes before, never even tried and I really would like to do it.

Anyway, that picture that Devildude posted. Oh my a guy? X3 I cannot see the difference! And that skin is so good~! Wow, I'm impressed, really. Crossplaying's fun, I would like to crossplay too. But well, beer belly guys wearing Sailormoon outfits are not a pleasant sight. >_>

Strange but believable indeed.

In general, I really cannot approve of the guys dressing up as girls aspect of what julian1 has so cleverly termed "crossplay" because the practice is as a whole disturbing. That the cosplayer that Devildude has so generously provided pictures for is male is, in a word, disturbing. However, as any of us who have ever gone to cosplay conventions can attest to, few males cosplaying females do so nearly a convincing job at portrying females, and in those instances.

Case in point: the infmaous ManFaye.

Here, I don't think that "disturbing" cuts it. I would use something along the lines of "oh geez, I need to go claw my eyes out now."

In general I don't mind crossplay because of the conventions I've gone to, but I do agree there is a line that people don't want crossed.

To shinsengumi-san, if ManFaye looks horrible in pictures, I hope you never EVER see him in real life. >< (first time at AX for 2005~~ T~T)
