I'm totally going to get sued for tonight's post, but I can't let this go on any longer.
Let me begin by explaining what 'cosplay' is for those of you who don't know; cosplay is a conjunction of the words 'costume' and 'play.' Fanboys and fangirls dress up like their favorite characters and go to conventions and show of the awesomeness of how much they look like their fantasy counterparts (be it video games, anime, manga, movies, etc.).
I'm here to say that this should be banned in America, my reasons for this statement follow.
I'm going to name the character and his/her origin, post a picture of that actual character, show you a good example of cosplay for that character (from japan) and finish each character with the American version. Please bear with me as I almost pissed myself from laughing multiple times 'researching' for this article.
