Recently, I saw some posts go around that pointed things out that people found particularly offensive. Bad wigs—people not styling or dyeing their hair to the characters, using costume satin, people who don’t seal their makeup. The usual complaints that people tend to have about those who are uninformed about cosplay.
I thought about it for awhile, and not a lot particularly offends me when it comes to cosplays. Not even giant stripper boots for a masculine character makes me think, “oh, that RUINS their whole outfit,” I mean, I don’t particularly like their footwear, but if the rest of their cosplay is nice, so what? They probably just wanted to be taller to fit their headcanon for the characters.
Today while cooking, it hit me. What the worst, most offensive thing is, that can ruin even the most wonderful cosplays.
A bad attitude.
If you’re just at a con, having fun with your friends, even if you rolled out of bed this morning and said “hey, I think I’ll cosplay this,” grabbed some random stuff out of your closet, and threw it on, I’m really not going to care. I’m not going to be irritated by your existence, I’m not going to judge you. It’s your business how long you work on an outfit or how many feels you have about the character, it’s not mine.
However, giant epic super-detailed 349654962-part cosplay, or closet cosplay, if I CONSISTENTLY see you being rude, talking down other cosplayers, causing a disturbance, being disrespectful of others, talking shit about other cosplayers, hating on people cosplaying a fandom you don’t like, sending them hate, or just being unpleasant/nasty to others who are just trying to have a good time and aren’t hurting anyone? Oh man, do I judge you. I judge you hard. I stop caring how pretty your cosplay is, I stop admiring you altogether. I’ll think to myself, “Wow, that person has a beautiful cosplay, but WOW they have a bad attitude. That costume/makeup/face/skill/whatever is wasted on someone so spiteful.”
So yes, that’s my cosplay peeve. That’s the one thing that can ruin ANY cosplay on any day.
