I've been planning a skit workshop for a con, although it was focused on the more physical aspects of the actual performance rather than the writing.

I'd be happy to help with a writing one.

With regards to Yaoi I do think that sometimes some people can go a little too far with things. I mean if you're not hurting anyone or being seriously offensive and it's just a laugh between you and a mate then why not?? Cons are there for people to have fun. I have no problem with Yaoi although I'm more of a Shonen-ai fangirl as i prefer kissing/cuddling to sex (even in hetero relationships) but if someone did something that i didn't like/agree with I'd probably just ignore it and go somewhere else. I would feel weird if someone i didn't know came up to me and asked me to do something just because of the character i was dressed as (i see that some people in this thread have been asked questions like that....yeah it'd kinda freak me out) I also know that some people don't like to see guys put together from anime shows because there's a girl in the show so 'naturally' one of the guys should get with the girl....I'm going to pull Naruto up here as being a huge fan of the series i honestly believe that Sasuke and Naruto are hinted at more by the author than they are with any girl. If either got with Sakura i'd cry lol because it just wouldn't be believeable at this point. However other shows like Escaflowne mae me wince when people put Vahn and Allan together because Vahn is so clearly in love with Hitomi (i hope this is making sense lol)

With skits i'm really not bothered. They make different people laugh based on personal tastes and i have a lot of respect for anyone that can go up there and do something. I really liked the Gravitation one this year because it's a fave show of mine and i was speaking to the girl that did it quite a bit over the weekend and i know how nervous she was. But TBH i was wanting to do my first skit this year but some comments in this thread have made me doubt that now (no it wasn't yaoi related it was a dance number lol) I mean i was going to do it for a bit of a laugh...i didn't realise how serious some people took them.

Please don't let him put you off! We love watching skits, especially if you have put the effort in to do something fun or different. Let me assure you that this is not the usual attitude towards skits in this community.

What the hell! That was uncalled for!

All I said was that I booed one skit and I'm sick of skits that were made only make idiots scream.

Holy Hell guys, seriously!? One day and this thread really went downhill fast.

IceClimber, your views are your views and I understand that, however they were put very badly and quite offensively and I very much dislike the fact that you would boo anyone. I too have sat through skits that I wanted to end MUCH earlier than they did, but I have NEVER EVER booed anyone. They're still being brave enough to get up on stage and put on that performance.

Mark, thanks for trying to get it back on track. And I like your use of smilies so if Kelly keeps up at you we can run off and do the yaoi thing

*looks at thread title* Oh yeah...LOL

Guys, please keep this civil and IceClimber, consider this a written warning ok? Because you are this confrontational all over the place these days and I don't know quite why, but CosIsland is one of the friendliest cosplay communities I've come across and I want it to stay that way.

In the same way, a lot of the people responding were sounding very confrontational as well so please, keep it civil.

I agree with Kazz! As seen in this thread, people that would boo are a very small minority. Most of us will appreciate your skit! Personally I always clap, lol, as it is something I don't think I'll ever have the guts to do >.<, and appreciate the effort. Now, I clap harder if I think it was very good and/or game some lols. It's all about having fun. Some people are taking it to seriously

Back to the topic...

I have nothing to say >.< . I just agree with what some people have said here about if yaoi (or whatever the name is) doesn't hurts anyone ...

Edited by request >.< (but i didn't say anything mean )

Hanagata, edit your post please as considering it's directly under mine asking people not to direct any hostilities, mentioning certain people is not the smartest thing to do.

You the man now dawg.

Also... No yaoi for me. Despite the name and the campness, I'd probably find being that close/intimate with a guy terrifying and unsettling.

Of course you're a handsome chap, it's not you it's me!

Look Kelly only one smiley this time!

yaoi is more overrated than pokemon and DBZ. i see it as something verging on fanatical, and woe to those who dare say that x and y are not really a couple, and it's all in a raging fangirl's mind.

suspension of belief is great, but cripes, stop turning my fandoms into yaoi porn.

as a randon aside, i find it fairly interesting that yaoi fans are far more guilty of slashing every male character in an anime than yuri fans are of the opposite, who tend to look for actual yuri, which ironically tend to be better quality stories (e.g. kannazuki no miko, simoun and nanoha to name a few)

Brillant posting there Mark. You really have brought out the fun side to the forum. (smiles for you).

One quick comment before returning to the thread topic. I have now seen the link and although it is a poor skit I don't think booing is needed. I agree with others if people really don't like something then leave.

Demented-Kid, I agree. I would like to see more Yuri as well. As much as I love Yaoi (yes, the actual hardcore stuff as well as the soft stuff) I would like to see some Yuri that is as mainstream as Yaoi. However, I am worried that if the Yaoi fangirls/guys get they're hands on it that they will ruin it.

I do think that Yaoi has lost a little of its appeal for me mainly because I do find the fangilies/guys offputting. Yaoi as opposed to Shojen-eeeppforgottenthespelling should be kept as a privite thing. Maybe to share with a select group of people you know.

Uber-Nerd, i like the panel idea. Will dash over to your thread with much hast. *>>>>>little tiny blond smily>>>>>*

I think that even the bad yaoi skits have had a little hard work put into writing them. That the people who do them probably think it was funny to them. Personally, if I find a skit boring or tedious I'll complain in my head but still clap at the end because they tried their best.

Of course, there's a chance they might just seem rubbish because the cosplayers are just nervous or something. I tend to worry about that if I ever did a skit.

I've actually been put off writing skits because after I've written the script I look at it and think "That sounds funny to me but people are gonna think this is crap" and then throw it away. I have actually managed to write 2 skit ideas tho based on conversations on this site.

I think that if you find a skit crap, don't boo it, it makes you look elitist and people wont like you much after that. Elitism is bad, whether it's to do with omake or costuming. I admit to being a little elitist with costumes but then I look at myself and think "At least they went to the trouble of making their own costume and didn't buy it online like I did"

And an omake panel for writing and acting would be a good idea. I'm very shy and found just doing karaoke/masquerades nervewracking but I'd like to do skits in the future, so a panel might help with confidence.

I Think that everyones got there own opinions but if yaoi makes people happy or laugh Its OK

yaoi is nice xae..... same as yuri is nice.... not all yaoi fans are rabid fangirls that make evey fandom or anime into yaoi porn and not all make everone a yaoi couple so do actualy look for the yaoi sudgestions in the first place (sasu/naru for example).

Here's a vote for yaoi!

I think it's amazing how it promotes creativity, exactly as yuri does of course... There are incredible fanartists and fan fiction writers out there that I really admire. And the doujinshis are beautiful!

I started my illustration career drawing yaoi fanart commissions. Now I'm fortunate enough to be studying for my master's degree in the subject - Illustration, not yaoi! When I wasn't very confident about my work, those yaoi fans were ever so supportive. So I thank them very, very much.

Whatever makes you smile in life is worth enjoying! That's my humble opinion.

Why are people calling me a troll lately? I'm not deliberately trying to cause problems.

Anyway, I was referring to the the girls in the topic of this thread. The ones that go completely crazy for this thing (yes the screaming ones). I don't understand the appeal at all.

I guess I'm never gonna win as far this subject goes.

Not understanding the appeal of yaoi is fine. Lord knows I'm very much with you on that. But it's still grossly offensive to tell girls - squealing yaoi fangirls or not - that they need to "grow up and get boyfriends".

Don't you agree that their behaviour immature and pathetic? Saying that I should stop soon before the whole site jumps down my throat and I get banned.

If I see someone walking down the street, wearing unusal clothes I don't think "Urgh what are they doing that for?"... They never asked to change clothes... I just think "That's different"...

As soon as they are out of my field of view, to me they no longer exist.

In other words. If YOU don't like somthing... Pretend it doesn't exist.
