horriblecosplay asked: Not bad cosplay? What is this shit? I can't comprehend the amount of dicks this blog sucks, it just can't be calculated. You enjoy cosplay yet you respect furries? Their sub-culture consists of sewing zippers on a fur suit over their naughty bits and yiffing eachother to holy hell whilst Elton John slams away at the piano. Twinky Winky weeps for your sins.

Aww, honey, you’ve been on 4chan far too long.
If you really believe every fursuiter does this, just stop going to conventions, because you must believe every cosplayer gets off in their costumes too. It’s the same concept.
Go back to 4chan. You aren’t welcome here, child.

So, I’m considering running panels on cosplay bullying and how to deal with it in the future. In a zentaisuit of course because people don’t need to know who I am.

If Not Bad Cosplay ran a panel at a convention, would you be willing to go?

Cardcaptor Blackura is probably my favorite intentional shitty cosplay, it’s like a better version of Eddie Murphy. #cosplay #sakura #card #captor #anime #convention #con #ccs #eddiemurphy #LULZ (Taken with Instagram)

No one talks shit about Cardcaptor Will.
Get back on 4chan where you belong.

This Narutard is quite talented in doing a split, equally talented at shitting his pants too apparently. #naruto #anime #boston #cosplay #rocklee #narutard #convention (Taken with Instagram)

This is a well known shoop.
You haven’t been around very long, have you?

OH LORD, SHIT IS ABOUT TO GET REAL! This is one gang that you don’t want to run into. #sailormoon #crossplay #cosplay #gang #japan #convention #crossdress #yougonnagetraped #anime (Taken with Instagram)

I have said this before, and I will say it again.
These are sumo wrestlers. Paid for a gig in Sailor Senshi outfits when Sailor Moon was a huge thing. It’s meant to be funny.

GTFO out of my anime conventions. This was taken at IkkiCon VI in Austin, TX just prior to a yiff pile. You know it’s a bad convention when furries invade. #anime #furry #convention #ATX #yiff #japan #cosplay (Taken with Instagram)

You obviously aren’t a decent cosplayer if you can’t respect furries for the amount of skill that goes into making a fursuit. And how are people dressing up as animals any worse than people dressing up from American Animation.Get out of the convention scene if you can’t take other fandoms coming into it and having fun.

It’s like the anorexic version of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. He’s clearly trying to model for Calvin Klein. #bobobo #anime #japan #cosplay #convention #shittycosplay #crossplay #anorexic (Taken with Instagram)

Are you kidding me? Calling a cosplayer anorexic isn’t any better than calling a cosplayer fat. Hating on skinny people isn’t acceptable. Stop.

A friend of the NBC mod. No one has been sending me things, so have this and love it.
This just shows that your costume doesn’t have to be flashy or super interesting to win a cosplay competition. This girl won Best in Show because a simple-looking costume being made perfectly is more impressive than a flashy costume being made without as much perfection.

You’re amazing. Totally amazing. I’m a very mediocre cosplayer, and I don’t care. I have fun in my costumes. That’s the point that I think this entire community has lost. This is half the reason I don’t go to conventions anymore. Everyone’s an elitist fuckwad. Here’s a fun example: The second costume I EVER MADE was Malon from Ocarina of Time. I went into the craftsmanship contest. The Beginner’s trial. I was told that my skirt didn’t flare enough, the paint didn’t look like it was sealed well enough, and I needed more practice. It’s people like that that kill cosplay. Cosplay is supposed to be fun, not something to make everyone feel like shit. So thank you for trying to infuse this community with something good.

As someone who is big into craftsmanship, I will say this. If you don’t want to better your skill and improve, don’t enter competitions. It is not a “for fun” contest. It’s a competition where people are judged on how well made their costume is. You can run around and have fun in your cosplay, but if you enter the craftsmanship competition, remember they are going to judge you on your skill. They aren’t elitists at all. Most craftsmanship judges I know (and I’m a craftsmanship judge as well) are very kind. We know that cosplay is for fun, yes, but there is a big portion of it dedicated to skill. That being said, I, and they, don’t slander or tell people they suck because their craftsmanship isn’t perfect. If you enter a craftsmanship contest, you have to expect that you have a chance of losing the competition. And just because you don’t win doesn’t mean that you suck as a cosplayer. It just means that someone was better than you.

That aside, Novice/Beginners class is a hard class to get out of being that there are so many people in it. It took me 5 years to get out of novice, and within six months I was through journeyman and into masters.

Page still under construction, so bear with me.
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.
