EDIT: A Very Unhappy Cosplayer

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 28, 2011, 10:33 AM
EDIT: Things have been resolved. I will try to get my motivation back up for cosplay.  There are several people already doing that, and for that I love you.

I kind of wish you would have called me or something, cause I just now managed to get over to dA to see this. But, I guess you managed to resolve it. You're awesome, and I got your back no matter what. :3

omg. i just went though read all the discussions related to you trying to get cosplay accepted. and it was brutal. you shouldn't feel down though. you have tons of people on your side! I really do feel like any medium should be accepted. if its a well taken picture with good editing it should be taken along side with other mediums. some people just dont understand the hours and the cost of making a good cosplay!!

you defiantely need to keep going. you inspire alot of people. Ive been working on a new cosplay for acen and its totally putting me out of my element but you inspired me because you make such amazing cosplays!

Yea i know the feeling XD its the same way with my terra cosplay. Everything is starting to come together now.

Our panel is called Unsung Heroes of Final Fantasy. And basically we are talking about the final fantasies that ARE NOT 7, 8, 10, 10-2, 12, 13. Like the old school games that are extremely overlooked thanks to the popularity of these said games. I didn't include 9 cuz i feel like its been under played thanks to the ones surrounding it. So many people I've talked to that are FF fans and i've asked if they've played 9 and they haven't.

As of right now, we really don't have anything planned. Except at the beginning I was going to do a tally of which games have been played by the people in the room as a experiment. I was thinking of doing a small 5-10 min trivia contest at the end with some prizes (I was going to get FF anthology and chrono trigger/ff4 bundle and still debating on other things)

Any thoughts?

That's such an awesome idea! Its super convenient that fat chocobo generally appears in the less popular final fantasy games. The same goes for onion knight. You could even do a section about the best underappreciated characters. often the popular characters people cosplay as are some of the worst. It'd be cool to have good game art to show the original vision of some of the older games. Most of the reason the popular games are popular are the graphics. Almost all the new games are centered around a character that is the current cliche of a sex symbol. I mean come on 10-2 was a total mochery

Yea, same goes for Terra, I found that 6 is my personal favorite through the story alone. And it has Kefka! Who is AWESOME!

And you're right, graphics are extremely biased to some people. Which is ridiculous if the story sucks! I pulled some videos from the old school games and i need to figure out a way to incorporate that. And definite sex appeal is clearly evident...hell thats all 10-2 was about. And 7 has completely taken over the market. When I was at otakon, there was little to non cosplayers 1-6, then 7 was like 50 people. 8-10 had like five to ten people, then 13 had another 20 people....

We should figure out a way to work on stuff, Aaron and I are trying to talk through AIM but then there's always Skype too. Christine and I love working on cosplay stuff togethr through skype.

I think this is why I'm never in a cosplay group, just too much drama. Good luck hon~

It's not a cosplay group. It's for fanart of Sailor Moon, which includes cosplay, but for this contest it said specifically in the rules that there is to be no cosplay.

It's settled for now, the founder and I have decided to put it aside for now and make another contest later on.

Thanks for the support

I can see where they're coming from (although I'm just skimming the comments it seems to boil down to whether a cosplay can be judged in the same way as other sorts of artwork).

At the risk of getting on a high horse, I don't think anyone is deliberatly trying to be bullying or rude, at the very least. ^^;

It could be because there was a lot of talk against it in the comments and there was mentioned the "one person complaining" and that would be me, but there were 70ish people that voted yes to it and they hadn't said anything. I felt like the lone gunman against an army.

But things are settled now. And I'm going to try to continue my cosplay work.

Okay, I know I'm probably one of the ones who's considering bullying, but I really want to get my opinion out. I do think you are taking things far too seriously; the fact that Silver made a poll to begin with shows that she was open to having other opinions, even though it's her decision to make. She really is a sweet person, far nicer and more patient than I am, to be sure. Please don't confuse her efforts for bullying just because they may not have the result you wanted.

Since we're talking about feelings here, here are my own. Keep in mind, they're MY FEELINGS, I am not trying to bully you. Honestly, your posts are really testing my patience. I do not like being accused of being a bully simply for making a point as much as you don't like being accused of throwing a fit. I also feel like my own point has been completely ignored.

Why is it that you are allowed to have an opinion, but the rest of us are not? In my opinion, that is truly how you are coming across. Why is it that when somebody disagrees with you and doesn't immediately see your point that it is no longer a discussion but an argument? Why is it that disagreement is bullying?

It's not wrong to question rules sometimes, however, just because you question them doesn't mean they should be changed. That was the entire point of the poll, to see what people thought about changing the rules.

I am not questioning anyone's personality or how they are like. but i think you coming here stirring the whole pot up isn't helping. This is considered bullying to me that you come here on my turf to express these sort of things. I just decided to let it go like 2 seconds ago before I saw this comment. And I hope you just leave it at that too. This is MY journal, I can post what i feel like on here. I didn't want to post anything else in the group. And I've decided to let it go. I hope you just respect my wishes and do the same.

Ugh I'm reading the comments now. They did sound quite rude. I really hated that they kept trying to make you feel bad. They always had to have their 2 cents in. It was okay when they apologized until they just keep saying that they tried to satisfy you and you just weren't happy. Is that really necessary?

But don't think too much about it. Just keep doin' what you're doing. In retaliation to the "It's just one person throwing a fit" comment, it's just one group. It's not a small group eithher, so they should know/learn how to handle something like this better. You know?

Sorry Dear. I dont think its fair either. Cosplay is a form of art. It takes a lot of know to sew (which I can't>> >.<) To Sew, to know design...HELL, Art colleges have design as a major!! Now i'm all angry!! ERRRRR!!
