Oh sweet, it's a girl this time!

On a tangentially related note, it could be due to where I live, but I for one find it hard to believe there would be women in to Strike Witches. Awesome, but hard to believe.

Cosplay of Katharine O' Hare, a character from one of the mangas.

If you search for SW cosplay on the aptly titled cosplay.com (lord knows why I even did this) you'll find her.

The 'Trude cosplay on the site another girl did is also good.

>> No. 4348 ID: dc714d

I dunno, shirley's strikers are pretty impressive, and the mio costume has some of the best ears i've seen on a cosplay (not overly fluffy like most cosplay ears.

it's also not a very good shot, it's just a strait on group snapshot instead of something that was well-posed and such.

so year as far as cosplay goes its ok.
>> No. 4349 ID: f06f62
Kind of harsh, don't you think? I thought they did a decent job, particularly with cosplaying to body type and the props.
>> No. 4350 ID: 3b222c
Considering it's un-staged and not photoshopped, I think they look pretty good.

Most Japanese cosplay images look good because there's about 10,000 filters applied to the image.
>> No. 4354 ID: a4972b
More filters on those than on a pornstar picture.
>> No. 4355 ID: c35dd5

Pretty looking Girl, OK Looking Trude Dress, Not So good depiction of Trude's Uptight personality, no FW190D Striker units = MEH...

I for one prefer that "crappy" american Shirley cosplay above. In the end, it will just boil down to what people would want to see in cosplays. Pretty faces or accurate and convincing costumes and character portrayal.

I guess the perfect equation would be
Pretty/Handsome Looks + Accurate Costumes + Convincing portrayal of character personalities.

But alas! We don't live in a perfect world.
>> No. 4486 ID: 9fec25
There is much decent witch cosplay out there, but it annoys me to no end when they're saluting in the picture and they don't salute properly.

Pet peeve of mine yes, but since they're cosplaying as characters in a military you'd think they would have saluting down.
>> No. 4490 ID: ce061d

but then Lynne would have to be palm out, shirley would be palm in, and the K-trio and Francesca doing the roman salute.

actually it would be hilarious if all the witches were standing on line and snapped into the different salutes at the same time
>> No. 4492 ID: ce061d

unless we're talking a complete hambeast, I'm more concerned with the quality of the costume myself. especially with amateurs. generally the things I like are ears that aren't overly fluffy (so, like, you know, they look like animal ears) and uniforms that appear to be made out of the correct fabric. if they're using felt or cheap cotton, it will show. if they're using wool, it will also show, and it will look way better.

(note that Hanna-Justina and Raisa costumes should use cotton since they are desert uniforms)

The girls who dressed as Mio and Shirley at Dragoncon had actual WW2 uniforms. That's some dedicated cosplay.

Charming. You must really have a way with women. Have you ever considered that the girls pictured in this thread are real people who might have feelings?

Also, same girl, same convention, dressed as Wasp from The Avengers.

It's the internet after all. No holds barred. Go speak with so much garbage worth that will rival the filthiest landfills or act even more twisted than Satan and his hell spawn armada.

Makes me think of a cheesy tagline.

Well this is as close you get to official cosplays for now, save for the seiyuus live action event years ago.
Hikari is sorta cute here but oh doge the rest.
They really should've hired Klara's Russian voice actor from GuP to do Sasha in BW too.

The eternal problem with cosplay is that anime characters are idealized human beings with abstracted facial features. Bringing reality to the mix ruins the magic. It works a little better live, but only if the cosplayer is any good at acting in-character.

But at least cosplay can be funny as hell. I was looking for a very relevant video of a silly cosplay of Eila "flying" with Striker units and all. But alas, couldn't find it. Maybe somebody knows what I'm talking about.

Well, being at least somewhat attractive helps a lot with that too, something most cosplayers aren't.
I assume you meant this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT1sxk9b7vA and yeah cosplaying is for the fun factor too.
>> No. 11448 ID: c4b563
Attractiveness is very subjective, but my point was something different. The fundamental difference between a real human face and an abstraction that lets your biological firmware, honed by millennia of evolution, imagine the perfectly fitting details. That's the point. That's what makes perfect cosplay an impossibility.

Of course, body type is also one huge limit for good cosplay. Anime characters with impossible proportions are equally impossible to cosplay well and most anime characters limit the cosplayer material to young and often relatively small-statured teenagers.

And Strike Witches cosplay in particular adds yet another challenge. Even if they get the uniforms right, even if they get the hair right, even if they get the ears right... there's always ethnicity. When the show places much emphasis on nationality, asians cannot ever cosplay european witches nor vice versa.


So, that said, I think it's better for me to leave cosplay to be the fun play it is and not think of it as visual art.

Thank you, that's it! Didn't know it was on youtube as well, I will cherish the link.
>> No. 11449 ID: f9ea7d
The biggest put-off with cosplay is all of the 25 year old Japanese girls trying to be 17 year old European girls. That's what makes it uninteresting at the very least to me I guess. Someone has been doing a lot, and I mean A LOT of Erica commercial cosplay photo sessions lately, and I really don't care to see it. Not that i'm really in the habit of looking at 3D girls to begin with.

Not to knock people for doing it for fun, that's what it's about in the end I guess.

Yeah I think race and body also factor into it if you want to make it authentic looking, though there's not many of those since people usually use wigs.
