It's like Halloween costumes for ladies... not just a nurse, but a naughty nurse that likes dick. Should say right on the package... "For those that like dick" :-)

Captain Picard Facepalm Meme | I TRIED TELLING MY DAUGHTERS THAT! | image tagged in memes,captain picard facepalm | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Seriously, Denver has a huge con community. There was an article about all of these girls getting groped, molested, assaulted, you name it.

I had to tell my daughters about it. My point was, what do you expect half drunk teenage virgin boys to do when you shake your ass & tits in their face.

Of course, my daughters' logic was, just because we dress in these costumes doesn't give the guys the right to be pigs.

Circular argument, I know, but if something did happen to one of my daughters I'd have to take their side and wail on the little pervo that touched them.

I know what you mean. Admittedly, I get overwhelmed when there is a cute cosplayer in a revealing costume (I'm single and a guy, I can't help it.), but I don't want to be those kind of predators. Unfortunately, nowadays I'm seeing some people online strain the definition of cosplay by sexualizing themselves for attention.

Personally, I love the hobby. I'm not a cosplayer (Though if I did cosplay as someone, I'd be Reality from South Park, which I'd probably give so good a performance I'd offend everyone in the convention, but I digress.), but I love meeting cosplayers in person. If they're not doing it as a fun little hobby, or to dress up as their favorite character...you never know! We could be looking at professional costume/fashion designers one day, working in the movie industry, or Broadway, or at the Vegas strip. It's why I love seeing people enjoy what I do.

What I do question though, is why they'd sexualize themselves just for attention. The character portrayal and costume craftsmanship are enough to get attention in the geek scene especially online. But if all you're doing is putting a costume on to look sexy, or doing provocative stripteases with said costume (what some cosplayers call "lewds"), and calling it "cosplay" in the process, that to me is straining the definition--it's more "modeling" than anything else. So there's no real reason to "shake your moneymaker" while cosplaying as a character you love...I mean I can understand wanting to become a model, and all that, but when I see cosplayers expose themselves, I kind of see them embarrassing themselves deep inside.

That's all I've got to say. I don't mean to sound judgemental, especially to the few cosplayers I met over the years, it's just how I see things. I'm the type that speaks my mind, so I apologize if I offended anyone with this meme or this comment.

Sorry, I love seeing people enjoy what THEY do. THEY do. Damn dyslexia.
