Question can cosplayers play women parts when they're men and vice versa?

i was just wandering, cause i've never been to these meetings, also i wonder, what do they do there exactly?

do they perform some sort of play or do they just go there to meet eachother?

and what if a guy plays a female character? is it accepted or is it generally frowned uppon?

i thank you in advance for your reply

first thing is this belongs in the cosplay forum, a mod will move it there soon..

to awnser cosplay is just something fun to do ( when you say meeting you mean a convetion) anyway most cons have a cosplay comp wear cosplayers display their anime char outfit and win a prize if the have the best according to judges, so in short its fun and you can win stuff..oh and cross cosplaying isnt realy frowned upon. hope i helped...

most cosplayers i see are ppl who cosplay their opposite gender, so it's not frowned upon, as long as it's done right of course

cosplay in general is for fun and to show ur love for the character

There are certain roles where it is...while, neccissary to be a man to be a woman, if you get my drift. Think along the lines of Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi, etc etc.

ATh. You have some very very disturbing pictures. I am starting to think that unless a man is able to walk into a non-lesbian womens' locker room and not get noticed until he takes off whatever might be covering his bits, he should not cosplay as a woman at all.

**tears own eyes out***

But seriously, there are cases when "CROSSPLAYING" can be done well. It's very rare, and it's hard to do.

wuss, you know you want to

no i don't!

and i'm not a wuss either. i believe i'm a person who clicks links that are should be clicked and DON'T click links that'll lead me to gourging my own eyes with chopsticks. so thus, i aint a wuss

just do it, the pain doesnt last that long and it will build your character

no, it won't build my character at all. and the pain WILL last forever. at least i go to the hospital in a hurry and happen to get some morphine. even then i'll have mental anguish and pain and torture and suffering, almosts comparable to Hell itself!

one day ill get in the mood again and organise a full scale 'worst of' cosplay hunt.

There hasnt been one of those in ages.


oh the horror... what have you done Satan? you and your damned plans to make everyone in the world to gourge their eyes out and get addicted to morphine *shakes fist*
