Cosplaying.

Costume roleplaying, if ya wanna be frank about what the hell the word means.

In today’s society it’s like a fantasy come to life for the geeks at heart and the…..chicks who think Spock is from Star Wars. (Side note- for my to make that purposeful flaw was beyond hard to type ..kept putting Star Trek down.)

Yes, I’m a geeky girl. I legit broke my Return of the Jedi VHS ..well, not rage broke it, I wore that shit out! But I don’t effing understand logic…well kinda..when it comes to today’s cosplayers and “geek girls”. For those of you -and I’ve seen y’all amazing chickas at the Cons getting your on fleek cosplaying on! Props to you amazing gals!- pay no attention, but I’m sure you have noticed what I have been noticing a lot at cons…

chicks who bare all , but have no idea what the hell they are cosplaying as/what the film is/or anything geekery…they just wanna see guys salivate.

Like some characters are sexy, so yeah cool if you dress exactly like them because you’re replicating the character which is the point of cosplay. But if I see another sexy Ewok, C3PO or effing Jar Jar Binks- or lord forbid, jabba- I’m gonna kick your ass all the way to Endor and back and the impact from it just might land ya in Hoth!

It’s cool too to kinda have your own flair on a costume too, but don’t make it borderline porno or soooo far away from the character you basically designed a new one. Just don’t. Check the rules at the Cons…a lotta them are family friendly, so if you’re borderline showing your genitilia, that’s not cool, bro.

What got me thinking about this was when I was talking to my boyfriend about next years Hal Con…I’m going as Poison Ivy. Yes , I know it’s a sexy character, but I know how to not overstep the boundaries. My inspiration for the version of Ivy I will be replicating is the cartoon version that was modelled after Bettie Page. Off the bat I realized that this character is sexy and alluring, but I know how to make it fit and not be bare all. Remember…if ya give em something to think about and be mysterious, it’s more alluring! I mean, I go all out for cosplaying…hell, my hair is even gonna be dyed red for the occasion and I’m making my outfit all by hand , including the leaves !

Anyways..what are your thoughts? I wanna hear from you genuine geeky girls and guys !

    Well, I am fine with people having their own flair to things. It is all in good fun. I’m just not the type of person to take a picture of a sexy female version of Vegeta.

    Again, neat and good for them ^^;… I don’t care about super accurate cosplay as long as people have fun. I just think if the costume is 85% (made up number) exposed thighs and breasts it is a bit much as I think it is far away from Vegeta.

    If someone wanted to genderbend Kamina from TTGL – I’d be fine with the exposure they may have as Kamina naturally doesn’t wear a shirt. The half naked Vegeta reference hit a nerve.

    Good read ❤
