Hi Guys.

I am the Admin from <om nom advert nom> and I would love to hear more views from you guys on this.

I have posted a new story outlining your outrage to the news, please comment to put your views across.

Thanks!


Hello!

Alright heres my opinion, I don't think its fair how you've assumed we're are freaks, and something for people to laugh and judge, we're probably the most genuine people you'll ever meet, all we're doing is what we love, why destroy someones life on tv a show for doing something they're passionate about?

I think everyone is way overreacting over this, it's getting ridiculous.

Just enjoy the event, ignore them if they bother you and stay classy.

Threatening or taking physical action against them as some people have threatened to do will NOT help give us the positive image that we really want to strive for.

"Big-Brother's trying to make fun of cosplayers...so let's go be as ridiculously over-the-top as possible, giving them the exact footage they wanted!"

Come on...just walk away and don't give them the satisfaction.

I agree, and I don't think all this outrage is what the announcement should get. Disagree with them singling you out as different? Prove to them you're not by acting like a normal, rational human.

It's kind of amusing actually - while most people are being reasonable, I've seen the odd person first of all being incredulous over it being suggested that they are oddballs who shy away from mainstream society, following it up with a rant about how Big Brother is stupid and terrible and only those mainstream-loving chavs like it.

Make your minds up you fickle bunch D:

Yes they may have made a comment or whatever calling cosplayers 'odd' but seriously, so what?
Why should it bother us?

Its pretty much like most of the things that happen at expo, if you dont like something, dont take part!

I understand that people dont like cosplayers being ridiculed or humiliated in this way, but thats television for you. Getting all angry about it like this isnt going to change anything, and it wont stop people from thinking that cosplayers are 'weird' or 'freaky'.

If someone is stupid enough to believe what they are spoon fed by the media then that is their problem.

This post turned unintentionally turned into a rant. Still, I hope I got my point across

Particulary shows like Big Brother. I mean, isn't that pretty much all reality TV programmes? Look at I'm a celebrity! That's the entire show!

Just wondering, has anyone here been approched by them? I didn't see them at all. I did see one small camera crew but that could have been someone else.

I saw one guy with a 'professional' camera by himself, who wasn't exactly interviewing or taking addresses.
I have a feeling after all this fuss, Big brother weren't even at Expo.

I didnt see them but my friends told me big brother tried to get this comic artist in the art gallery part to go on the show. They even left leaflets on his table.

That thing is stupid MCM haven't actully done anything to appoligse for. They cannot control the actions of these so-called 'broadcasters and journalists'.

I think the best thing we can do is just all agree they're jerks and move on I guess. Like people have been saying, if we all fly off the handle and start humping mudkips then yeah maybe you might find it funny, and yeah you might be making a point. But if we "Give them what we're looking for" they're just gonna use it to their own ends, it sounds boring but ignoring them is the best thing we can do.

They gave them press passes. And chose to still honour those passes after the "freaks and geeks" story The Star ran during the week.

As the Admins on the MCM forum are quick to remind us, the Expo organisers control (or at least try) who is on the premises. You wouldn't admit a journalist from the BNP newsletter to the MOBO awards would you?
