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
