Something EVERYONE SHOULD READ.
Without a doubt, this is true of every woman—straight or gay, young or old. Yes, there are some women who choose professions that put them in those situations but many of them are reluctant. There are very, very few women who actually enjoy being looked at as just objects by anyone—man or woman. The lesson here is treat everyone with respect and courtesy and if you don’t have something nice to say, keep your mouth shut.
I love nature and the rain! :D Many of my friends who have visited or live there send me photos and tell me about it and it sounds like my sorta place. XDDD I will definitely visit it and decide after if I wanna live there or not. c:
Ok guys, time to vent a little.
I’m getting terribly sick of the attitudes of some of those who compete in Masquerades (cosplay contests) at conventions.
So here’s my thoughts on why you’re REALLY losing when you go into a competition with a bad attitude.
As someone who has had the honor to judge contests, this is absolutely, 100% true. It may seem a bit backwards, but if you go in with a higher-than-thou attitude—even if you did some amazing sewing technique or whatnot—judges tend to not want to reward you. Because in the end, that attitude reminds them of why they got into anime and cosplay in the first place—the bullies and jocks that thought they were better and more popular and made of fun of or shunned them.
I, personally, love to reward cosplayers who make the character/costume theirs—own it in a personal way. I like to see the creativity and insight a person has when approaching and creating their costume. The linear, perfectionist, popularity-driven cosplayer is not as interesting to me, and I tend to find their costumes and creativity to be rather boring in their overall simplicity.
Your attitude is a general indicator of how you went about your costuming process; if you are excited and want to tell us about every little detail and how much you changed your mind about a method or took a chance on something you weren’t sure about, we can see that you enjoyed working on it and winning will pay off your hard work… but if you are methodical and offer no real detail about your methods other than cold, factual specifics, we will imagine that you were simply forced into doing the costume and that you are only entering to receive some compensation for your time, money, and energy having been wasted overall. Not cool.
Err… I don’t remember the model, actually, but I know it’s a Kenmore from Sears.
EDIT: Google to the rescue. It’s a Kenmore 385. c:
NO YOU ARE THAT AMAZING. I’m not that anon BUT I FEEL THE SAME WAY.
Pfffffffft. Okay, I guess I’m amazing. XDDD
I definitely feel like a precious thing to him. Thank you for your concern.
I really think you give me too much credit though. XDDD I’m not all that amazing. Even if I am worth that much (if not more). XD;;;;
