OMG! This us soooo true and beyond hilarious Alexandra.
And to everyone else she is not "personally" insulting anyone demographic, she's merely illustrating an interesting and humorous observation that she gas made in her own real life...basically she is pointing out: no one has the right to outright judge someone for the exact same thing that they themselves is guilty of; example the two guys shouldn't be talking, because the same can be said of them...although overall, of course, it us a free country and anyine can do whatever they want regardless. Thats all. It is not meant ti be raken as a personal insult. Its supposed to be funny.

This can go both ways for both genders. Nobody needs to compare genders and say shit like, "Men are just pigs who think that women have to be perfect sex objects!" Guys can be humiliated too so stfu.

I'm short and fat and have my dad's shoulders, and I felt this way about my Halloween cosplays of the Guardian of Metal from Brutal Legend, because he's wiry and skinny and reeeally tall and also male... But I quickly stopped caring when Halloween night came around. I had so much fun doing my impression of him!

I've actually seen two morbidly obese otaku guys rip on two semi-chubby girls who weren't even fat that cospalyed chobits characters and they basically said "Oh cosplayers ruin everything." Like really? Wow. I've actually seen this hypocrisy in action at actual cons.

Good one ^^
Its also not easy to find the "right" cosplay. I thought about going as Lucy from fairy tail, she has a cute, but strong personality and loves books as much as I do. But then, when I was talking to a guy the con before, he was like "no boobs, no lucy-cosplay" :<
In the end I didnt cosplay her :/

Correct, and neither can fat guys...or skinny guys.

But skinny girls can so this whole misogyny-accusation is just silly when in reality it's more misandrist than misogynistic.

I think your imagine has it the wrong way around. Women are far more likely to criticize about appearance. And males, nerds the original outcasts of society, the inventers of comicon and primary initial cosplayers, un-adonis-eque themselves, are very accepting people. 

I originally thought this image was inspired by www.salon.com/2013/10/02/my_em… which it imay be, fortunately your gender agenda on this image is not supported by the authors experience. In fact common sense should tell you If anyone is doing the catty bitchy comments its women. It's a shame about the obvious bigotry as I like the Mike Judge style of this image.

Great job :)

So true guys who are chubby/fat or skinny will play off thier "fail" as funny but girls get these looks like "how dare she!"

At the end of the day, cosplay is just for fun, lets not make it into "who looks most like my fantasy version of my fav character?"

Yeah I agree, while the guys can play off their body flaws girls receive looks/statements of harsh disapproval, it's sad.
saally I thought of cosplay once and back off because I was thinking "well I'm not even chubby but a got a little belly, so I can't play as Korra (from Legend of Korra)" Korra dose not even show off her tummy but yet uneasiness kicked in for me. She dose has wash board tummy though.

So I can kind of relate to the idea of a natural social expectation/demand to look like someones "fantasy version" of thier fav character when cosplaying, instead of just having fun with it. *Shrug*

Have you even cosplay?

:iconnat-evans:
Nat-Evans Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013  Student General Artist
yeah. the sad truth is that women are expected to be beautiful and hot no matter what [mainly because we're seen as sex objects BUT THAT'S ANOTHER ESSUE LOL]

omg you should totally cosplay as korra! serously! she's so awesome, and really it's about the fun! some douchebags like these guys exist but not everyone is so stupid :D and cosplay is more about the craft and creativity and fun anyways \o people in convention are always so friendly! 

i honestly don't find the expectation all that natural really :P i like creative cosplays, that try to convey how a character would look in reallife, you know? realistic version of characters, realistic costumes :3 cos i think some look too fake, bag wigs, super vibrant colours and shit, and don't go well with how real humans look LOL so answering your question, that's the kind of 'cosplay' or costumes i go for )o) i haven't done that many times, just a few, so far i've been a realistic random badass angel, i've been a realistic death note's misa, and a realistic Sandman's Death :3 all to costume parties only, except for the Misa, which i went to a convention as )o)

I get what you mean.  As for me cosplaying Korra, I will :D (Big Grin)  But I will still try to get into shap, not for shallow reasons but really it's because I love working out, my favorite workout is cross country, and there's alot of hills in my city.  Also I want to get my body back, when I was 14--20 I worked out daily, running in the hills and enjoying it, plus doing aerobics.  But for the past 4 years since I was 20 my college schudle got so choatic that only for seasons I could workout, then next season regain weight, and for so long this up and down patterns been very hard on me :| (Blank Stare)  But on a brighter note I recently graduated and with freelancing as a graphic designer, it's getting better. :D (Big Grin) 

To your other response: Nice you've cosplay your own characters and known characters. Cool.  Aside from Cosplaying Korra, I want to cosplay a anthropomorphic Eeevee 
Heart my fav pokemon

I saw your profil and gallery but no cosplay stuff?  But regardless I love your art, especially the Adventure Time stuff

At least "fat" girls don't flaunt sex in their cosplay...
I've seen way too many "skinny" girls flaunting their boobs and stomach and not even looking like the actual cosplay but being rewarded for it... Like it's more about what their body looks like (like it's a competition) and not even about the cosplay and how good it is...

I'm sure that the women you're shaming for "flaunting" worked hard to maintain the body type they have, most women who wear revealing outfits diet and exercise to the extreme to prepare themselves for cons. Regardless of what the cosplay looks like, they put time and effort into perfecting THEIR look. When I cosplay I love characters that I can connect with, sometimes, those characters have sexual appeal to them and it's safe to say that I might adjust things to fit the personality and sexuality of the character to fit my own vision.  Also for some people cosplay IS a competition, sometimes it's how people raise money and gain exposure for their "company" or talents. Just because someone might wear sexy cosplay does not mean that they aren't a talented cosplayer.

NO in my comment I'm referring to cosplayers who don't look anything like their character. Please don't misread my comment, I apologize if I worded it wrongly, but when I refer to girl who flaunt, I mean when they purposefully change the way the character's outfit looks like so it can show parts of their body on purpose, not when a character actually does have a fluanting look of them.

For example, giving Chun Lee (Street fighter)cleavage in her main outfit in flaunting and a mess up to the cosplay. 
Keeping to Ivy (Soul Calibur) in her main outfit isn't flaunting, although you could probably pick a less sexualized character to preform as, but, to each their own.

I really like your deviation, it means a lot to me!
I'm also a person with a different body type than Lara Croft & Catwoman and all the other tough ladies.
And when I'm starting to think who can I actually cosplay I have only Alice from the wonderland, girl from the Bioshock or GLaDOS. (Maybe the announcer also..)
'Cos I'm too goddamn skinny, and my breast size.. I don't think I even have a size.. :"C
Critique? Well maybe I'll just give you an idea :)
You can draw a skinny Catwoman or Lara Croft, and that guys are complaining about it.
