It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Smokin' Hot (or Scary) Cosplaying Gamers (gameplayer.com.au)

Parz writes: "Dictionaries define "Cosplay" as the following: Cosplay (kosupure), a contraction of the English words "costume" and "play", is a Japanese subculture centered on dressing as characters from manga, anime, and video games, and, less commonly, live action television shows, movies, or Japanese pop music bands. Gameplayer define it as: a nutso bunch of people who, while good hearted and enthusiastic, are largely unfit to don skin tight, revealing clothing. That's speaking generally, of course. You can usually go to a convention nowadays and meet some really cool moderately attractive people who have just suited up for a laugh, or some weirdos who live on the fringe and have no concept of deodorant. Also in rare cases you can sometimes witness a drop dead awesome looking cosplayer — a rare, Halley's Comet of hotness. Featured within are some of the very best, and the very 'blurst' of videogame character dress-ups, coming to a convention near you."
