Quote from: djmonolith on May 28, 2013, 12:28:25 AMMaybe I will take a stab at this because I heard a LOT of chatter about non anime cosplay this year. I really think it comes down to the fact that there is so much non Anime related cosplay at an Anime Convention. Homestuck gets singled out because there are SO MANY of you!! Sure there are a lot of Dr. Whos, super heroes, cartoons, Disney, whatever... but Homestuck costumes were e-very-where.I have to say that there were a few of you that had beautiful costumes and amazing makeup and I really appreciated it. And I agree that, compared to previous years, you all seemed more "well behaved" as you put it. But the bottom line is that it is an Anime themed convention... and I think a lot of people just want to see Anime themed things.Which brings up an interesting point... Lolita, jpop, gothic fairytale... these things seem to be OK even though they are not "anime" - interesting??
Quote from: Stormfalcon on May 28, 2013, 12:45:49 AMThe point being is that, while Fanime may be an anime/manga-themed convention, the motto has always been By Fans For Fans. If the fans are into other stuff besides anime and manga and want to show their love for those things at the same convention, who really has the right to say otherwise? All it comes down to is some fans indulging in nerdrage and drawing lines that really shouldn't be there, since all they do is divide fans against each other.

I have never read Homestuck but nearly every person I have encountered dressed up as Homestuck has been rude, disrespectful, and overall some of the loudest attendees I have ever encountered. I'm not saying all Homestuck cosplayers / fans are like this but from the many I have encountered, it has just been disaster.
Quote from: 01 on May 28, 2013, 09:52:05 PM Homestuck is very simple in terms of cosplay and most don't like it because there can be ama cosplay that took a long time to create but gets less attention than the mainstream homestuck.
Quote from: 01 on May 28, 2013, 10:13:29 PM^as in "mainstream " i meant this year's top cosplay listing score (sorry if mainstream sounded bad) . The top listing score had 1.Homestuck 2.soul eater 3.madoka 4.Pokemon 5.legend of Korra.
