Cosplay on BBC.couk
The focus is really more on the games side of things as this part of technology section of the site.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/11925308

Not a bad little piece although was the staged night out really necessary?

I found this earlier and thought it was okay. The night out was a bit... er yeah. But apart from that, it was an informative piece about cosplay.

This is surprisingly good for a BBC report. Granted they could have explained a few things in more detail but this is the first BBC report on Cosplay I've seen where it hasn't been ripped or paired up as a minor part of a convention report.

Fingers crossed this means we may see more positive coverage of Cosplay by the BBC in future.

Yeah I agree about the fake night out. That was dreadful! But at least cosplay got a positive mention by the BBC. It's a start right?

A lad from BBC radio Scotland interviewed myself, Yaya Han and several members of the Auchinawa committee at Auchinawa a few weeks ago. He's not sure if the project will get aired, but if it does he'll inform me and I'll make a post about it here so everyone can listen in. He was really nice and quite clued up on anime and videogames (a bit of a self-confessed nerd!) so I think the report will turn out really good

The report from May Expo was good.

I wouldn't be too surprised this is actually a decent report as it's done by Ellie Gibson whose main job is reviewing games over at Eurogamer. She's also probably the funniest games journalist in the business.

*shrugs* Ellie's great. She loves games and generally writes hilarious reviews and interviews. And it seems like she did a fun piece about Cosplayers.

I thought it was, but from what everyone was saying, I was begining to wonder if I was imagining it.

It was brief and glossed over a lot, but it wasn't supposed to be indepth. Just a fun little piece. It was good.

Am I the only one who finds these reports somewhat patronising? Both of them sound like they're talking about and to 10-year-olds. I don't like it one little bit.


10 Dec 2010 - 12:3046427
as everyone has already said night out was a bit......wtf


but they are making some points


my only complaint? we don't all cosplay WoW show a bit more variety please!!!
