Booing someone for a bad skit is like telling a cosplayer that their costume sucks.

They worked hard on that, and yeah, it might suck a bit, but that doesn't give you the right to enforce your opinion onto them. It's your choice to watch a masquerade- if you don't like what people are doing then it's your choice to leave.

It's not fun for me in the audience watching this crap and having pathetic idiots screaming in my ear for two hours. Quite a few people at Ame (including you) were not entertained. I think you need to take a step back.

I've never put on a skit before so writing a tutorial wouldn't be a good idea. I think someone should write one but it probably shouldn't be me. Thing is most of these skits are put on by idiots for idiots and I doubt that will change.



Then dont watch them if you find it so offensive to your poor ears! Jeez you symbolise everything I hate about the Anime community, youl happily bash everyone else whos put effort in to constructing a costume, then writing and performing a skit for you - yet you have never done one yourself. If you have no experience in it then shut the hell up. If you were a veteran masquerade performer then maybe people would take your opinion into account, but your not....

Yea some of the skits arent going to be to everyones tastes. Im personally not a Yaoi fan, or an anime fan at that matter - but I can fully appreciate that people have put effort into their performances. Posting rude comments about people and also links going
-LOOK AT THIS AWFUL SKIT
are just out of order, get some social skills!


'Put on by idiots for idiots and I doubt that will change' - no it certainly wont with people like you being arrogant jerks!

Honestly, there's no need for that. If you have a complaint to make, make it to the masquerade staff. Many attendees think the yaoi skits are amusing/entertaining - that's why they scream. I hasten to add that I don't but I respect people for having the guts to do it on stage. Having gone up in front of all those people and performed is scarey enough without people like you belittling them.


Agreed, speaking as a drama student of well since high school getting on stage is one of the hardest things to make the mind do.

and speaking as a drama student its my humble opinion that crushing someones confidence not only affects there performance career but also there life, I wholeheartedly with all my soul think that is as far away as from what omake is about and general cosplay. No offence but its people like you who shouldnt be allowed in omake theatres.

All about Uber-Nerdscomment on comparing it to bad costume comments its just not cricket, not only in the humble cosplay community

sorry for getting worked up there *wipes rabid foam from mouth* this is just coming from someone who isnt someone with awesome costumes and stuff, I just beielive in everyone getting along.

Guys, I know Sean is the official forum admin now, but I just wanted to pop and remind you all to keep it civil yeah.

We're mostly all adults here and I am sure we can all respect that other people have different viewpoints on the world. Even if we don't all agree, or think somebody is totally, completely wrong, we should try and remember to keep it chilled out.

Cosplay Island is a pretty friendly place in general, it's one of the few drama-free havens our community has.

---

That said, I agree that nobody *deserves* to be boo'd. That's coming from a performer who has done a lot of different skits over the years.

Booing somebody is like walking up to somebody who has gone to the effort of making themselves look nice and saying; "Jesus you look like a maggot ridden whore, sort yourself out".

Booing is something they did in Shakespeares day because they lacked social skills. If you don't enjoy a performance these days you don't have to clap or cheer, you can tell people you didn't like it, you can refuse to go back or if you're at a professional theatre you can try getting your money back.

But, you should at least respect the people on stage enough not to boo. It might not be their script, or another reason why they aren't the ones to blame.

I don't like the skits which are focused on one punchline and that's a pair of characters kissing. I think it's a bit unoriginal, but that's just me.

Not everybody is a performance genius, when I've been backstage with the people in these skits I have always seen them very excited and enthusiastic about their skits because they know it's something they would like watching.

Cosplay is a very self indulgent hobby and skits don't really change that.

Do I think that skits should be for everybody. Absolutely.

Do I think you can always do that? Absolutely *not*.

Look at my skits, I am sure some yaoi fangirls thought my 24 Gears Solid skit was rubbish because they didn't understand it. Even Team Giblets skits (whom I greatly respect, to the point of rivalry ) aren't designed for everybody.

In short, if you don't like a skit. Sit there, fold your arms and tell your friends you didn't like it.

Booing is just very jerk-like to me. It shows a total lack of respect for the people who have *tried* to entertain.

well in the spirit of levity let me just say *in fact you were a point of reference* your MGS/24 skit was probably my most favourite skit *out of the 6 cons i went to* it was really funny ^^ my msn name for a while was "damn I pressed the square button to hard....I killed him" it was really well thought out and im posative everyone got the jokes, even the peeps who dont know MGS ^.- you were a prime example of a well thought out skit. well done ^.^

dont worry im not mental or anything I just really love Mgs.

Thank you very much! ^_____^

I'm glad people liked it. My MGS skit is still my favourite one and I'm really chuffed with how it came out. Really makes me smile when people say nice stuff about it.

I am sure there will be people who didn't get all the jokes, but I always try and include some "jokes for everybody". Normally they are just observations or very easy gags.

Although nobody ever comments on the "Damn I pressed the square button too hard" line and it's MY favourite one! XD

I think that's a very MGS fanboy/fangirl line.

Really? No one deserves to be booed? Not even even people with no objective other to make really stupid girls scream. I'd rather their confidence was crushed than having to put up with the same crap over and over. I was never comparing skit performance to masquerade walk-ons. I am just sick of this behaviour. It has to stop. The reason 'boo' exists is for the purpose of expressing disappointment at a performance.


Yes, really.
No one deserves to be booed. I know I have said I did not enjoy the performances, but I would never stoop so low as to boo someone just because I didn't like it.
I've performed on stage, not at a convention, but in other situations and it is nerve-wracking, gut renching and extremely scary. So how DARE you think you have the "right" to boo someone, who has got up the courage to get on stage and perform something I know maybe is not to everyone's taste.

If you don't like it then fold your arms and just sit there being silent. That's enough to put your point across. Booing someone went out in the Elizabethan period if you didn't like something. Along with crapping out your window, and apothacaries. There's a reason it did. People evolved.

Though perhaps manners skipped you over.

Lol Now changing the topic a little of Yaoi in skits, I have to say that one thing that has been annoying that has likely shown itself in other cons is a game that showed up in last years Tokonatsu 08.

The Yaoi for Yuri game.

Now this game RUINED Tokonatsu for me. This was put together by a bunch of 16 yr old fangirls, thinking it's okay to kiss someone who you aren't going out with just because they are the same gender. This actually almost ended my relationship even though I thought I was okay with it. I really wasn't... So there's another lesson, all because it's a same gender thing, dont think your partner is going to be okay with you randomly kissing just to see another pair kiss.

But the thing is, these girls were very VERY aggressive in trying to get more guys to join. Alot of people were uncomfortable with it at Toko, not to mention the girls weren't even keen on doing it when it came to their turn.

This game threatened to show it's head at Expo and I'm soooooo glad it didnt. Or atleast that I know of anyway.

But that brings me to another point about Yaoi. I'm really surprised that even though alot of Yaoi fans like Yaoi but dont actually like seeing the "real thing". This actually amazes me, but I guess that's just down to seeing one of the guys being a complete feminine type quite a bit of the time.

Also, another thing that annoys me to no end and has actually caused me some upset is the stereo type that all Yaoi fans are lesbians or bi purely because of the fact they like yaoi or anime in general. I find this upseting because I have liked girls long before I even knew what the hell anime was. Not to mention other things about myself. So I feel like I can't actually admit somethings about myself in the anime community because people could just very well sneer and go "She's only like that because she's like anime/yaoi".

I'm all for more Yuri in the community. I really could go for seing more girl and girl.

Also, someone mentioned it before, there really are somethings you dont do Yaoi about. Seriously. I do the pairing things on occasion but there are many things you leave alone. o-o

I'm done ranting. lol

I hear you, I kept my relationships mostly private between even my closest friends because I was scared they would think it was just an attention thing, alot of the girls who well, well they left our particular cricle of friends have pretty much stinted our opinion on the "hey im bi now or hey im full lesbian now" sort of thing. But after I admitted it they mostly called me stupid for keeping it in and lying I felt a twonk. but am much happier now I just didnt want to be that person you know ^.^ I guess what im trying to say is this kind of mentality does hinder peoples opinions.

And your right ^^ more Yuri, I think the lack may be the fact that its slightly looked down on in japan or at least less desired as yaoi or the other hentai staples.

Oh for Gods sake Ice Climber what is wrong with you?

Every forum youre on you just barge around spouting your views and personally insulting people CONSTANTLY! You do it on the expo forums and now have spread over here too!

Just let people be people, youre entitled to your opinion but personally insulting people is too far!

Back on topic...

I personally am a mild yaoi fan, but I dislike the way its used in skits as a way to get cheap laughs. It can be done very well and be quite amusing, but it depends on the experience of the person as well. Longer cosplayers know what works I suppose! Our Code Geass group for Saturday of Expo are currently trying to plan something but I said no to yaoi... I dont do no cheap laughs xD

WTF! What did I do? Seriously.

Firstly, I put up the link to that skit because Sephirayne had not seen it.

Secondly, I understand how hard it is to get up on stage and perform. The thing is these puerile skits are so half-assed that they did not go on to entertain, they go on to make a few people scream because they like that kind of attention. Look at the skits of Mark and Team Giblets; there is writing and preparation in them. Now look at a "yaoi" skit. The only thing that is set out is two male characters kissing. Nothing else has entered the equation. They really didn't try. I am not penalising people for technical problems, nerves or accidents. I'm not the guy that goes into an Omake with the intention of being abusive.

I guess I'm to sincere to be nice to people who waste my time like that.

As for what you did, I think it's more that you hold an opinion people disagree with.

Also, you did put up the link and call it a crappy skit. If you were just putting it up for Sephirayne to see you could have left that bit off mate.

Honestly. I'm not mad or anything, it's your opinion and your entitled to it. I think it's mean to believe you're entitled to boo somebody though. I think you're making a lot of judgements about the people who put these skits on without actually knowing them.

I know it might seem that all "yaoi" skits don't put effort in, but I believe that's generalising. I've seen non-yaoi skits that don't put effort in as well.

*cough*Danceskitscometomind*cough*

These people are just doing it for fun, they think it's a good idea and even if you think it's half-assed to them it might not be. By all means, don't like them (I know I don't) but saying that it's okay/encouraged to boo them is a bit extreme in my opinion.

Like I said earlier, not everybody can entertain everyone in things like an Omake. Cosplay is a very self indulgent hobby and that applies to the Omake too. I could write skits for everybody, but I tend to write ones for myself and then include bits everybody can laugh at.

There is a difference between being sincere about your opinions and being tactless.

Sincerity is an admirable trait but if you don't take peoples feelings into consideration it just becomes tactless. It's like the analogy I made earlier...

If somebody had gone to some effort to really try to make their costume, but perhaps it's not the best in the world. It's not "sincere" to go up to them and tell them everything wrong about their costume and tell them to take it off it's that bad.

That's just being a jerk.

I'm not trying to have a go at you or anything mate, I just want you to understand where we are coming from you know?

Thanks for the compliments about my skits. I have a lot of experience thanks to all my acting/performance background in Sixth Form.

~M

I found your opinion that people should be booed childish and mean.

As for effort put into a costume/skit, well that's all relative. I could say look at a costume you have made (this is theoretical and not a dig on any of your cosplays) and compare it to mine and say that yours sucks because mine is better, and you should have worked harder. This may be completely untrue because you could have tried your absolute best on your costume, and worked a lot harder than me. But still I would say to you that it's rubbish because *I* didn't like it.

So don't say that these people haven't tried when you have no idea about how much they really did try, and don't call something a waste and suggest booing it just because you don't like it.

Mark, if you don't stop using so many smilies I am going to have to duff you up.

There are good and bad skits in every genre of performance, no genre is really more susceptable than the other. I have seen plenty of bad 'comedy' skits and yet a few good dance routines (Ame 07 I believe, the winners).

There are simply not enough entries to be scaring people away from the Omake and thus a system to check them beforehand would be somewhat pointless.

i have to say being already frightened that this year allown i'm in 2 skits (even though one of them is being performed over seas) I would be truely hurt if I was boo'd or heckled. I have enough insecurities as it already is.

Those girls and guys who got on stage had alot of guts to do it. so be it if a few skits didn't work. It doesn't matter.

At least they had the courage to try

maybe an appropriate skit panel should be place in for people to learn and get ideas to improve?

Woah seriously! I agree with Angel Aiko - All this is quite intimidating for me because I'm planning to write and perform my first skit this year! Of course people judge the skits, it's human to do that, but I thought the general underlining agreement was that at the end of the day they're all just really a bit of fun? As in...not to be taken seriously...especcially as at most cons we dont even have awards for them! (And those who do are usually along the humourous vein of awards.) I'd hate if our con scene became like the american one where it becomes like high school. X.X Not that i'm saying quality shouldn't be encouraged (and of course it's good to take pride in your work) - but i'm not going to be really pissed if the skits dont 'meet the standard', i'm not expecting shakesphere from an anime con omake!

X.X Not that i'm saying quality shouldn't be encouraged (and of course it's good to take pride in your work) - but i'm not going to be really pissed if the skits dont 'meet the standard', i'm not expecting shakesphere from an anime con omake!


Who does expect that? I'm just sick of stupid girls using skits as an excuse to make other stupid girls scream.

It would be interesting to do a panel on skit writing. I'd be happy to do one, anyone else interested at all?

I mean we do seem to have an issue with skits being a bit dull sometimes, and not just yaoi ones, so instead of complaining a skit panel might actually help things along.

Kinda like a place to pitch ideas- like we explain how Uber-nerd constructs skits, someone else explains their way of doing it, and then we get the audience to maybe pitch forth ideas for skits and see what people think, and constructive crit as well.

Hmm, I'll take this over to another thread, see who's interested!
