PSU Feature: Cosplay: The good, the bad, and the ugly

PSU writes:

"Cosplay, otherwise known as "Costume Play," was a phrase coined for individuals who enjoyed creating elaborate costumes in order to portray their favorite anime, videogame, or manga character. The phenomena that started in Japan has done nothing but grow exponentially with each passing year. With the success that it has been, it has slowly overflowed across the ocean and took residency in the United States as a slowly growing fad.

With the increasing fanfare of the Anime culture in America, it seems that the cosplay scene has grown with it. There has slowly but surely been a growth in interest so much so that it has called for huge conventions to spur up from both the east coast and the west coast. Outside of conventions aimed directly at cosplay, you'll find the hobby being displayed at anime conventions, comic conventions, and even gaming conventions. As great as all of it sounds, sometimes people just don't understand the intricacies of what makes cosplay so magical and worth witnessing.

The only issue revolving around this pop culture happening is the blatant disregard of actually mimicking a character you can pull off. Due to this, America has been home to some of the worst, funniest, and even saddest forms of cosplay worldwide. Of course this epidemic isn't only limited to the United States, it does happen elsewhere, just not as often as it does here. "
