Thank you very much <3
I’m glad to make such a good impression on so many people.

And this, my dear followers, is who makes fun of your cosplays. They have all the verbal dexterity of a mule.
Take a bow, horriblecosplay, you’ve given us a good show.

To all you bad cosplay blogs out there.
I DARE YOU to show me your cosplays.

I mean, you must be pretty talented to go around making fun of others, right?

Bring it.

horriblecosplay said: LIEK OMG! i Need help with cosplay! I am trying to be Princess Fatora from El Hazard but there is a problem, I have a PP!

Just quit while you’re ahead.
The only person you’re making a fool of is yourself.

Seriously, honey, how many followers have you got? How many notes on your content?

Note to followers: This is a blog I am currently having issues with. Not some user I’m making fun of. It’s a grade-A bad person.

Anonymous said: to add on to that one homestuck picture where the sollux had his makeup rubbed off isn't really something to make the cosplay bad, maybe in that moment his makeup was rubbed off because he didn't know about setting spray, I'd assume most guys don't. granted, I have seen better cosplays, but it's not my place to tell someone "hey your costume sucks" cuz really what are they supposed to do with that information?

Honestly, if someone doesn’t as for criticism, it shouldn’t be given. Period. 90% of cosplayers know what’s wrong with their cosplays, and it’s really simple to look up how to work on that part.

Anonymous said: Tbh I do think there is such thing as bad cosplay, but also, that just because a cosplay isn't 100% that doesn't mean it's the worst one known to all man kind. I also hate how being "ugly" looking can make a persons cosplay awful. and i also hate how a cosplay is made awful for little things like, one hair out of place or the cosplayer having freckles.

I have actually heard of cosplayers with freckles getting told “WELL THAT’S NOT ACCURATE THE CHARACTER DOESN’T HAVE FRECKLES.”
There is such a thing as bad cosplay, but generally it’s cause by the personality or attitude of the person cosplaying. Acting like your shit doesn’t stink is common with cosplayers, and REALLY unattractive. A bad personality ruins a perfect cosplay.

I have a machine but I'm not sure how to use it and I have a limited budget so I can't afford high quality items to work with. I'm basically starting at square one but I'm worried I'll get grief and me being ugly and fat does not help.

Did you buy the machine new? If so they come with manuals to help you figure out how it works. There are also a ton of videos on youtube and tutorials online, as well as help books that you can get. If it’s not a new machine, you can order the manual off of the internet, usually.
With a limited budget, you can often get good deals. JoAnn’s has coupons regularly that are 40-50% off. You can also get wigs decently cheap on ebay, just make sure it’s a reputable seller.
Don’t worry about how you physically look. If anyone says something just straight up tell them you don’t cosplay to make them happy. Just have confidence and be proud of the work you’ve put into your costume.

Don&#8217;t ever *ever* be rough with your wig combing. Use a wide toothed comb, and use it as little as possible. You&#8217;ll end up losing hairs from the wig and ultimately ruining the wig entirely if you don&#8217;t. I actually broke the wig cap that comes attached to a wig by combing it too hard with a non-wide toothed comb.

Also wig conditioner (you can use regular spray in conditioner, too, I suggest It&#8217;s a 10, which is a little pricey, but lasts forever and smells great). Love your wigs the way you love your costumes. A bad wig can ruin the costume!

NotBadCosplay is a blog that was initially made to battle the "bad cosplay" tag here on tumblr. It quickly grew to spreading positivity in the community and promoting a good attitude with cosplayers.
