    That does look quite impressive.
    How much did it cost you?
    I'm kinda sleepy now, could have missed the price on their site.

    Let's call it Fallout: New Vegas cosplay, then people are happy even though nothing has changed. :smug:

    Doesnt matter, both are equally horrible in my eyes, I should've bolded the "cosplay" word then mebbe? :smug:

    When I think of "cosplay" - this comes to mind:

    Why do people do this to themselves?

    The "other" side? These are still grown up people dressing in videogame costumes. Maybe I'm missing some gene or something, but all I can think of is "this is awkward" when watching those pictures.

    Yeah... so what? I see grown up people dressing in generic clothes, boring clothes, business suits, leather wear, latex, like a gimp, movie stuff, some dress as super heroes and fight crime in the night, all that and it doesn't affect me. I don't know why it should now- besides, if you don't live in japan, most of them only run around like that on events and special meetings, not all day.

    /Edit: I have forgotten about the LARPers, who wear such clothes and do their stuff. This is awkward too? :>

    Playa don't hate. Dressing up on Halloween with a bunch of friends is a pretty fun time. I can also wear it the next time I go to PAX and cosplaying isn't considered weird at an event like that. It's actually a great way to start conversations with people you don't know.

    I have Princess Leia and Darth Vader costumes for the dogs, and a Boba Fett one for myself. They love it and it nets us free PETCO gifts, whats not to like?

    I don't get why people hate cosplaying so much, or have a problem with it. I mean, it's not like you would get embarrassed, if that is the problem.

    Sure, sometimes it looks a bit stupid (FAIL!!11!) or whatever, but it can really look cool and, if you have some money to invest in a hobby, it can be a good idea.
    I personally don't do cosplaying, but I know people who've dressed up for some events, and such things can be a really great way of having fun. I personally, wouldn't mind having one Master Chief costume, or even Fallout 3 Power Armor, even though I'm not a fan of either of those games.

    I only have a problem against bad cosplay, I mean if yo uare going to do it at least put effort into it. That is all, there are lots of incredibly elaborate and cool cosplays.

    So so far I haven't had much luck with this thing... it turns out that the bottom part is about 1cm too long for the top part that holds the screen. I don't know that I can dremel away the difference. Thoughts?




    I e-mailed the guy who did the molds but I'm not expecting a replacement part.
