Zatannurday: For the Cosplayers!

Not sure how tuned in to geek/nerd subculture you all are.
I consider myself fairly knowledgeble and yet something still pops up that I either didn't know about or leaves me scratching my head.

This one though just irritates me.
Here are some links, you can read them.  Long story short comic book illustrator Tony Harris doesn't like cosplayers.

and one from Other Side favorite Strikes Twice, http://strikes-twice.deviantart.com/#/d5l04ol

I am not going to have this conversation. Again.  If there is someone in fandom and you don't like them or think they don't belong there then the trouble might be with you, and not them.

Today has been declared as Cosplay Appreciation Day!

So I am going to celebrate the cosplayer today.
Thank you. To all the cosplayers out there that take the time, the money and the interest to share our fandom. Whether you are dressing up as a comic book character, game character or someone from a movie you have helped improve the total social standing of geeks and nerds (of which I am a proud member) everywhere.

Hmmm... There are people who spend hours upon hours working on costumes to celebrate their favorite characters and come up with interesting interpretations of them. That sounds like a major geek to me.

What's more, he doesn't call out the guys who learn to vacuform plastic in order to make their Master Chief armor. He just has an issue with women who show a little skin.

I think somebody has issues.

As for me, I want to thank the cosplayers of all genders, body types, genres. They certainly make our geek gatherings more wonderful.
