Idol: Exhibit A

Green Room - Week 3 - Day 1

I saw this on facebook earlier tonight and it just got me scratching my head. No, it wasn't that grouchy cat. But it was definitely something that he would react to: http://www.xojane.com/issues/mad-back-cosplayer-chaka-cumberbatch

Maybe I just don't "get" cosplay, but I thought the whole point was to dress up as someone other than yourself, and that it didn't matter what gender/racial/whatever lines you crossed in the process as long as your costume was good enough and/or you showed a clear love for what you were doing.

Every single one of you damn foreigners is into this cosplay thing, pretending that you are *real people who matter*! It's a good thing that I know the truth!

Speaking of "the truth*, there was a moment of it earlier tonight: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/617342.html

which was followed by the new Second Chance topic: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/617661.html

and of course the new topic for the main competition: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/617893.html
