155 – The Feminist Confused

I really hate that 95% of female costumes are “sexy insert-profession-here.” It just seems so unnecessary. You’re gonna freeze your exposed tits off, you probably can’t walk in those heels, and your costume doesn’t make any logical sense anyway. (Watch me run through this fire to save little kids in this outfit that leaves 85% of my skin exposed!)

Actually the same thing tends to happen with female anime characters too, which is the number one reason why I don’t cosplay. This isn’t 100% the case, but it’s enough to make it unappealing to me as a hobby. (I have a great respect for cosplayers though, specifically the ones that make their own outfits.)

    solution: move somewhere where you already have three feet of snow by halloween.
    “sexy _________”‘s are the exception here, (Newfoundland), and only seen at indoor parties; Usually private. It’s very hard to make a snowsuit look sexy.

    As it is, as a standard of “sexy” is starting to develop for guys as well, I’m starting see more males dress that way as well.

    (It’s been universally acknowledged for a while now that to show “sexiness”, (not necessarily be sexy), all a girl has to do is accentuate or show a little T&A, moreorless, (tongue-in-cheek). This is despite each guy liking different things in a girl, such as her face, or hands, or eyes.
    Guys don’t even have a vaguely defined objective when they try to look sexy. What, are we supposed to pad our muscles and crotch? However, it’s been my observation that as society becomes more sexually open minded, a vague male definition of sexy is beginning to come into play)

    I went to an anime convention on saturday. The first law of Female Anime Armour Physics makes for, if you’ll allow some minor perversion, some nice looking. ;D

    Sexy mostly is a matter of attitude and carriage. There are those who can make a burlap sack sexy, and those who can make a Victoria’s Secret special edition outfit look, well, blech. The dress (or almost lack thereof) does make a sizable impact, but the attitude makes or breaks it.

    So, no Skuld cosplay for you? You know, the Engineer that is the youngest of the three goddesses from Oh! My Goddess?

    Clearly you should cosplay as male characters, then. I nominate Spike Spiegel.

  6. Matt says:

    Rosie the Riveter is _already_ sexy. Just sayin. She is everything that is strong and awesome about women. :”)

    @Jenny: I understand what you mean and complete agree. Oh, and if it makes you feel any better I’m a straight, single guy even.

    @Matt: Yes she is.

    The whole point of those costumes is so that I can insert my profession there. They are perfect for that.
