Awww thank you, Rose-chan (can I call you that? ^o^;; ) I was afraid my comment in reply to ~lunamaxwell might unintentionally spark off something with you crazy people at TeamTARDIS XD;;; Can I take off my armour now? ^o^;;
I'm glad you like it though - and the logo thing too :3 Shame I didn't see your group at Expo else I would have taken photos for here too TT_TT!
Yeah well Shinji's a friend of mine that I've known for a while. It would be wrong to not upload a photo of him seeing that he captures a lot of cosplayers on camera for DTRN these days.
I don't think it's nice to kinda badmouth other people's cosplays though.... people try what they can - at the end of the day, Shinji's out to have fun as much as the rest of us. We might all prefer our friends' cosplays of someone but one really needs to keep in mind that we should respect other cosplayers too because that's how people can get upset and put off cosplay!
I'm sorry, just a vibe I get off people and cosplayers too... like they go in their best costumes and set up vibes like - don't approach me, I'm not as nice as I look - or 'glomp me, I love it!' but I know that feeling too... its why I kinda retired my Ed Elric cosplay... and have only ever wore my Thunderbird one once... but now just don't know what to do about cosplaying asides my bleach one ( even if zabimaru needs a patch job!
I don't think it's great to sort of judge people you haven't really met - Shinji's a really nice bloke and he doesn't think he's the best Dr. Who cosplayer out there.... I've met you twice now in real life and not once have I judged you on your appearance so it's kinda only fair... It's a shame you think of people like that though... I hope you soon realize cosplayers aren't all like that - sounds like you had a bad experience
Your Ed and Thunderbird ones were cool - you shouldn't give up on cosplaying. Cosplay who you want to - just remember, it's for fun!
I had a problem recently where someone tried to hassle me out of cosplaying Hitsugaya when they found out I was crossplaying him and that person has built up quite a reputation for themselves amongst other cosplayers which isn't a great one. I don't want anyone else falling into that same category - especially if they're people I know! :3
