Cha, but as I've never been round American cosplayers I can't exactly state that they feel that they get a stick up there.

And who cares if it's an old thread, it can still be used.

Only cosplayers do pointless things like trying to think what only cosplayers do ;p

on the subject of the ebay stuff looking crap, I aggre about most looking bad I spent hours looking for a decent orgy jacket and found a good 1 it arrived looks great but the chains are all wrong kinda spoils the whole thing, since it's pieces of string and tacky beads, gonna change it at some point.

but I've also seen plenty of amazing costumes people have made and clearly not bought. Since I'm usless I buy all my outfits but always spend hours finding good 1s.

i'd like to end the ebay nonsense by pointing out that 99% of people don't care unless it's a jerk passing it off as their own to "look good" or win competitivley.

Cha, but the argument that I was arguing against was "well, ebay bought cosplay always looks crap"

I think putting on that you shouldn't take credit that isn't rightfully yours is a given. And the person who said it in the first place was obviously joking.

Only Cosplayers spend £18 on wig heads.

Or is that just me and my friends?

but that was in response to a comment made over 2.5 years ago when virtually all "ebay cosplay" was awful. in '07 most of it was polycotton crap with single stiched seams knocked out by a chinese sweatshop. some stuff is a bit better now, but there is an awful lot of garbage out there still.

I actually like my ebay bought sailor fuku and shizz, it still gets commented on, and I'm like 'lol its from ebay! I couldn't make this!' and people are like O_o ebay? Seriously? Its amusing.

But anyways, don't wanna dig up a 2 year old thread. *shuts up and carrys on with uni work she should be focusing on*

On wig heads: I meant I spent a total of £18.89 (to be exact lol). In all I got 5 wig heads, for about £3.77 each XD

@ebay thing: okay whatever. I was just giving a voice to costume makers that didn't have one. It's just I get annoyed that people still go "ebay stuff is shite" when it's not always. The only one who get ripped off honestly are the ones that can't realise that they're rubbish. The comments really help oddly enough.

And over 2.5 years ago, my friends have bought a Sora, Urahara and .hack Kyte (i think, i dunno) cosplays, and they've been really good quality too.

Only cosplayers will hunt around B&Q buying up random objects because they might be the right shape for X prop.

It annoys me when other cosplayers act like snobs because someone has bought their costume. I can make my own, but I won't if I feel I won't make it that well and don't have the time. My friend can't sew to save her life, she doesn't have much money, and she feels as if she's a burden on her friends if she gets them to make them. Ebay costumes are relatively cheap, so that's her only option. And does it really matter?

Only cosplayers spend way too much time in the kiddies section looking a toy guns they might be able to paint silver for a cosplay they might do.

Is this an 'It is annoying when...' thread or an 'Only cosplayers...' thread? I'm getting confused XD Lets just drop the subject or start another thread up maybe?

Only cosplayers go on sites like these - I presume anyway

the only thing people get annoyed with is people passing off bought as home-made, which was what people were talking about back when the thread was new. it's been an issue since cosplay began in the UK, and someone on this very site had their account deleted for leading people along on a lie. the big drama starts when they try to enter masquerades that are strictly "self made only" and start taking up places that legitimate home made costumes could. this was something very common back around '07, but since then a lot of filtering procedures have been implemented.

people don't care about buyers, people only care about liars.

i have every reason to be "eliteist", but i'm not. my first Ed was an ebay (by my flatmate, and long term friend no less).

And I said in a response that the person who said it was obviously just joking and not to take it seriously what she said.

And I do understand that it would be annoying if someone says that it's their own work when it's not. That happens in any situation, not just cosplay - I have had someone say to others "hey, I've drawn this" when I've actually drawn it for them. Not really the same, as there was no competition involved, but still very annoying.

Anyway

Only cosplayers goes on these sites instead of doing coursework like they're suppose to ;p Or that might be me again lol

only cosplayers bedrooms look like a fabric shop gone wrong


23 Feb 2010 - 18:0427702
That's my living room. Which my mum is slowly getting to boiling point about... Probably should sort that out...

Only cosplayers see a difference between cosplay and fancy dress. No-one else does.

on the ebay subject.

Uhm... i think that not all the costumes are aweosme, i mean i have bought one from ebay and i plan to where for it the may expo, because it's my first time really cosplaying and i'm a complete novice. It's not completely correct so i'm gonn a fix stuff.

But also my first kinda cosplay was all from my wardrobe XD and i'm now moving on to make my own cosplays too. So sometimes you gotta start somewhere ne Even if it is old ebay XD XD XD

--

Hmm

only cosplayers will....rush to their wardrobe or a charity shop to find what they can, if they were stupid enough to forget about the deadline >>;;

although that's probably only me XD what? i couldn't help college tried to eat me so i ran outa time. >>"""

eh heh heh XD XD XD

Wardrobe cosplay ftw.

Heres one for those who brought theres from Ebay lol.

claim it as you own work lol

Everyones costume who looked great obviously got it from Ebay lol, although there are a few exceptions ect lol.


to clam all costume that look good or make well are from ebay is silly. becasue its my opinion and you may disagree with me, but most of the costume on ebay are incorecty made, made badly using wrong metrails, fitted wrongly made from cheap mitrals and just look genarly bad and cheap looking.
off course there are exception but unless you get it commissioned there userly not worth it wast of money in my mind.


I know exact;y what you mean, I bought my first ever cosplay off ebay, and It wasn't that bad, but my friends was terrible, It was made with the wrong coloured material, and we were freaking out because everyone would notice and think we were noobs so we ended up taking it apart and re-making it
