KYM Pony General V: We Just Don't Know What Went Wrong

Last posted Jul 01, 2012 at 04:43PM EDT. Added Feb 19, 2012 at 11:27PM EST

I saw some Rarity cosplay on EqD. I think there’s a strange phenomenon among guys and girls who cosplay as a character from a fandom they follow. It seems like all of a sudden, they go from being average-looking to hot.

  • Remove the cutie mark
  • Remove the heavy eye shadow
  • Remove the hair color and style

Don’t get me wrong, she’s an attractive girl, and some of the best cosplay is simple. If I knew what she was like, I’d certainly date her. She can’t do much more to it to get that Rarity effect (the scarf thing is a nice touch.) But she’s not a supermodel either.
 
 
Take this one for example. I’ve seen it in a thumbnail on Ponibooru, but I haven’t looked at the comments. I imagine people are going to say she’s really hot.

They’re going ga-ga.

She’s ok-looking. Like I said with the other girl, she’s attractive, but if you take the swimsuit of…GAH, and put regular clothes on her, you pervs, and made her the natural brunette that she likely is, then you’d have an average-looking girl with breasts that are being held up by the fact that 1) fat floats and 2) that swimsuit looks like it’s pulling on her pretty well. I don’t know about the physics of the top, but I’m guessing that it’s making a difference.

Sure, clothes and make up can add a lot more in terms of perceived attractiveness to some people than others, but I don’t think it’s all that. She’s nice to look at. I don’t want her to think she’s not cute.

I know badsitrep’s comment (or many of his comments) can’t be taken too seriously, but I’m just saying…again.


Guh, now I’m going to have to start a thread about this…

@ verbose
I think it has to do with the stereotype that nerds aren’t good looking. Especially ones willing to cosplay. You get a guy that is 5’9" 160 lbs, no big deal. Have him cosplay as big Mac, " fuck he’s buff!". No matter how much we want to people to ditch the nerd stereotype, we still hold it ourselves.

Shut up and enjoy the hotness. Don’t look up the magician’s sleeve.

Once you know how something works, it gets a lot more mundane.

tl;dr Stop analyzing. Just enjoy.

PS I thumbs’d you up fer bewbs. lol, shallowness.

@Article

Oh please. Don’t even bother trying to analyze it and stuff. SomethingAwful is nothing but a bunch of trolls. In responding to that, you’ve been trolled.
Good day, gentlemen.

Apparently, someone didn’t like badsitrep’s approach. We’re both about the same in our ability to analyze stuff, but badsitrep prefers to just enjoy things. I get my kicks from looking at how people work. He’s always on my case about that. He keeps me in check, and he’s a little brash about it. No big deal. No need to thumb him down.

But don’t think I can’t enjoy things for what they are. People can study music theory and still love music like everyone else…if not more.


Also, best art.


Also, The Friendship Express DVD just shipped and could get to me by Saturday. We can see how Derpy was changed in the DVD or if she wasn’t. I’m supportin’ the show!


I, erm, uh…what?

Not sure if proud to become the header…or ashamed…

Being serious all day is boring for me. That is all I have to justify my earlier post.

BTW, has somepony uploaded that to the MLP page and/or the “wat” page?

I could see many uses for that.

Going to the forums. I don’t care what goes on in the entry anymore it’s just people who don’t know how to shut up about trolls… and fruit salad. And yeah really don’t need to have an actual conversation there to begin with so yeah. I’ll be lurking here.

Waar je je waarschijnlijk niet van bewust was is dat mode hetzelfde woord is in het Nederlands. Ook al kan ik de zin daarna absoluut niet begrijpen zonder vertaler, het woord mode is absoluut geen probleem. Maar ja, nu praat ik Nederlands. Dat zag je niet aankomen he. Ik kan nu al wedden dat je een vertaller gebruikt, ervan uitgaande dat je het begrijpt.
