OpinionCosplay can be terrible, but it's tolerable because a few costumes are just awesome

It's a mix of epic win and epic fail. It's a plus especially when it's a hot cosplay.

What a travesty, Emma Watson will be 18 in April 15th, too old.

You can still watch the early films where she remains forever young.

I'd have to pair them with early pictures of PB

@BorgClown: mmm emma is quite nice.

@Baslisks: She is, she's just too old for PB. I can't see PedoBear inviting an almost adult to his raping show.

I'm not sure that the parents of any of those children would appreciate this. It brings a whole new meaning to the concept of obtaining parental consent.
On 2008-11-19 at 04:45:13, Baslisks wrote...
@Lee J Haywood: I don't think the children would ever know to question it. In reality they are probably just giving the "bear" a hug. The placement of its head is no consequence to it till it gets older.

Wow. When cosplay is done well it is SO right... I love a girl in elf ears... ;-) Oh and if I ever catch someone doing Kaley from Firefly, I might have a 'pedobear moment'(!). Mmm, Kaley... I kinda wish she had a bit more of an obvious style, but meh, I always have my imagination ;) Ahem. Sorry, got a little sidetracked onto a connected issue there ;)

kaylee is awesome. Mechanical knowledge is hot.

The left (blue) Link cosplayer is cuter, mostly because she smiles more than the red one. I hate that feeling of inner entrapment whenever a beautiful woman smiles.

River is SO not as hot as Kaylee! :P I love the fact that EVERY man I have asked says Kaylee (or the odd nut job says river :P) over Inara - who is blatantly supposed to be super hot... Woop for hot girls that know stuff, and have good manual handling skills ;-) @BorgClown: "There's no heart you can't melt, with a certain little smile" (Bluetonic - The Bluetones) just leapt into my head from that comment, thank-you :)

Now that you mention it, you can tell how fake they are in all the other pictures too - I really hadn't paid enough attention to them before. It's a real shame - I thought they'd done a proper cosmetic changes, not stuck plastic on... since the rest of the costume is quite well done.

OK, you gotta do this experiment for your sexuality's sake: 1) Go and passionately kiss your gorgeous girlfriend 2) Go and passionately kiss Brad Pitt 3) Migrate to Puerto Rico to avoid Brad Pitt's suit What was the best kiss?

Being a hot girl is fine, but the costumes make it clear they have a nice sense of humor, and that made it sexier for me.

Fair point... I have to admit if I was ever gonna go for one of the others it would be while wearing that suit (or something similar...) Then again atm I would prob go for anything with a pulse that didn't scream 'rape'. ;-)

It's just a case of them demonstrating a playful nature, and anyone that manages to actually look stylish whilst being incredibly geeky gets bonus points.

@Lee J Haywood: so about a 4?... I kid I kid
On 2009-04-24 at 18:42:34, Lee J Haywood wrote...
Exactly - when you divide by zero the answer is whatever you want it to be, but it's always a contradiction (not that multiplying by zero makes any sort of sense, any more than dividing by it).

It took me a while to figure out where I'd gone wrong. When Baslisks said "about a 4" I thought he was referring to my equation with ( 3 ÷ 0 ) and was suggesting that 4 would work just as well as an example, which it would, FYI. I have no idea what he actually meant... So actually, my comment is in the right place. (-:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We see them with affect, but the corset is sincerely unflattering. The back girls look hot though. Might be the posing.

@Thelevellers: anime cons. IF you get the scratch to hit up the states and don't feel so disinclined to visit st. louis I'll bunk you for a couple of nights. I'll ask my friends what cons are coming and maybe you can fish out a nice chick. Play the british douglas adams thing and you might even get one.

Ha! Nice idea... Sadly I want something more than a fling, and long distance blows goats... Still, the pulling power of a Brit accent is pretty awesome I've heard, so maybe I can get over the downsides of the Us... :P

the us is a good million square feet larger than europe, though we are a hundred million people smaller that europe. Where I live is good old blue town but its more of a blue dog city. democrat with republican influences. Kind of what I am but I am more of a progressive so.... yeah

Interestingly, I recently had the feeling, seeing a gorgeous, voluptuous girl as I drove by, that women are delicious, autonomous food deposits. The weird thing is, you can't literally eat them, why do they feel like food? Maybe because we see them as good feeders for our potential progeny?

@BorgClown: Oh yes you can.
On 2009-10-28 at 00:05:01, Lee J Haywood wrote...
@BorgClown: I'd suggest that all pleasures have a common mechanism in the brain, so there's overlap between the sensations from different sources. There are quite a lot of sources of pleasure, after all.
On 2009-10-28 at 02:45:06, BorgClown wrote...
But music can be very pleasant and it doesn't feel like food at all. Women OTOH can be surprisingly yummy for being something inedible (and no Melchior, eating them that way doesn't count lul).
On 2009-10-28 at 02:46:42, BorgClown wrote...
Mmmh, babies maybe feel everything yummy, since they keep putting stuff in their mouths.
On 2009-10-28 at 14:06:20, Lee J Haywood wrote...
I wouldn't say that women have the same effect as food anyway, except perhaps you actually make contact with them. They're simply addictive, where you get a buzz from simply looking at them or being around them.
