Cosplay is cool…Sometimes. I don’t understand a lot of it– and I presume that some of these Cosplayers only understand why they are doing what they are doing all by themselves… Like the lady I saw dressed as the GEICO Insurance Money Wad— complete with the huge Oogly- Googly eyes– standing in the unbelievably long line for last weekend’s Chicago Comic Con.
And even though I don’t always understand the motivation behind the costumes– I can always appreciate the effort these dedicated cosplayers put into their gear. Many– if not most– of the cosplay costumes and accessories I have seen rival Hwood production quality. This attention to detail obviously comes from each individual cosplayer’s sometimes obsessive decision to “sweat” the small stuff.
But what happens when cosplayers take a page from XXX Fan Fic and decide to let their characters “act out” in ways heretofore only reserved for fan wet dreams?
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS!
Here is a comely Link and Princes Zelda from gonintendo.com. Innocent enough, right?
Uh oh… What kind of DARK SORCERY is this?
Wow! I suddenly have a whole new respect for Cosplayers and Cosplaying.
I wonder if they ever let any ACTUAL GUYS play Link?
