    To me character accuracy is kinda important but having fun and getting to see other people's work is more awesome. Getting to see someone's labour of love that they've spent months working on is pretty sweet. Especially if you've been along the journey. It's about being in a community of people that love what you love as much as you do.
    There are better cosplays and worse cosplays yeah but if someone's made the effort to cosplay you shouldn't shame someone for it just because their western/asian. Anyone should be able to dress as any character without restrictions.

    I think that asians often do look better for some characters but there are characters that more suit westerners. It's more preference than anything. Anime characters have hella weird proportions a lot of the time anyway, we've all seen it somewhere.

    oh my god, wowwwwwwww. damn that sucks.


    I don't think it's quite true, Westerners can generally cosplay characters. I think Asians just tend to put more effort into making good quality cosplays, so we see more 'good' cosplay from them. At least white people have a range of character's they can choose from.

    I can't look like any anime character, maybe Uub from DBZ and that's it.

    I totally understand. It sucks that I have maybe 10 characters at most to pick from if I want to cosplay accurately. Most of them are western characters too. It sucks. I wish there was more diversity in anime/manga but I don't see it happening for some time yet. It's a lot better now than 5-6 years ago when I first got into manga but there's still some way to come. I've seen some coloured people cosplay as white/asian characters but it's rare. I'd love to see an anime with a coloured protagonist some day

    Only two (that I can think of) among thousands of series, but hopefully they're of interest.

    I can actually only think of 2 dark skinned characters on top of my head. One of them was super hot though. But a servant... lol
