Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Animazement in Raleigh Durham, NC.

Right now, we're bleaching Chelsea's hair.

Should be interesting.

Re: Aquaman in danger...

Nothing wrong with cosplaying. Unless your cosplaying an a character thats of the opposite gender. Then its a whole different story.

Nothing wrong with that either.  The only real thing to avoid when cosplaying is choosing a costume designed to best display the attributes of a figure entirely different to your own.

The balding, overweight, middle aged man in the skimpy japanese school-girl anime costume would look no better in a very masculine, but equally (or even moreso) skimpy gladiator costume.

And no, nothing opposite gender, although the friend I'm going with will be. She can pull it off, though.

I? Not so much. I am very very obviously female.

Wow, now there's some vivid imagery.

Better than what was going on at cons in the 70's. Let's just say the women (who thought they were hot) were going for the "less is more" look.

Is the lack of a costume (of any kind) a costume?

Depends. Is there anything in Anime similar to a Betazoid wedding?

Re: Aquaman in danger...

Probably, anime can get a little perverse now and then.

Well, if you see a young woman with short-ish orange-ish hair, black shirt, one arm all straps, about five foot ten, perhaps with wings on ... go up and introduce yourself. That's my daughter, Chelsea.
