Damn she's HOT!
People need to grow up. Someone's cute and sexy, great. Why not show everyone her cosplay just cos she's nice. Nobody complained about the chubby ones showing their skin. Or that Diablo Barbarian in a loincloth? Is this some perverted kind of reverse sexism? I see a future where nobody beautiful lets anyone make pictures of him/her, because they might get labelled as sluts/whores just because of the way they look. Nevermind the actual craftwork they put into their costumes or the art behind that.
This thread, coupled with the recent 'LGBT laws in Russia' makes me very sad. Most of the western culture seems to believe 'being immoral and intentionally bringing your human nature closer to animal instincts' means 'freedom'.
Mr. finskee is the master of logical fallacies here - you do nothing but call out everyone who makes a point on their 'slut-shaming'. Guess what: if a woman does everything with a hidden agenda of getting attention, it doesn't mean your americandreamish-shit like 'she's doing what she wants because she's free!'. It means only one thing: she's attention-whoring. If the only thing you can do to attract attention is to appeal to men's animal instincts, then, duh, you're just whoring/slutting yourself out. Stop using fallacies and sophistication to prove otherwise. It doesn't even matter what we're talking about - it's not just about cosplay and this particular woman. There's plenty of movies, books, pieces of art, cartoons, anime etc that are filled with so-called 'fanservice', which is, in essence, just an whoring-out attempt to play on primitive stuff.
As someone in this thread stated, look at that Wrynn girl cosplayer. She's not half-naked, even her body doesn't look ideal. Yet she is beautiful, sexy, attractive and her cosplay (not just the costume, but the whole feel brought up by the combination of it with the person who wears it) is very spectacular. Yet you probably think she 'isn't free', bah.
I just feel like the plate bikini is trying too hard to push the sexiness angle of something that doesn't really need a sexiness angle at all.
Basically: She's using the fact that males find her attractive in order to win the costume contest. People with better costumes will not have as good a chance of winning, because she's naked and many people are feeling intimate parts swell up when looking at her.
It's unfair and cheap. A costume contest should be a costume contest.
Whenever I read a reply to me that starts with, "So what you're saying is..." -- and I've read so, so many -- my first thought is,

Wow I just read through your posting history and you might be the most conservative person in the world. And that's being as nice as I can about it. /backawayslowly

Poor girl, the icy winds of Northrend consumed her clothes.
I have to say I like the more correct costumes, there are other arenas for bikini contests.
This thread is such a shit hole. Mods should lock it. Pathetic.
Physical attraction is a thing, you know. It seems to be a trend nowadays to deny it, but incorporating your body with art or work doesn't invalidate or devalue that per sé. Please stop being so quick to pull the trigger on the you're-just-thinking-with-your-dick gun.
