For people who are commenting on why some US cosplay looks like the unidentified-gunk-beneath-your-sneakers... well... in Japan, or for various countries in Asia for that matter, anime/cosplaying is a part of mainstream culture, while in the US it's definitely fringe...

So if you consider the subset of anime cosplay population...

<flame shield ready, begs for mercy>

There are plenty more normal/decent-looking people (guys and girls) in Japan doing cosplaying, so there are far more good cosplay pics.

In the US, your average cosplayer, being from the fringe population (and may I venture to say *outcast*), is, mathematically-speaking, more likely to turn out to be a "fatass-no-jitsu" just because of sociology and the law of averages (% of overweight people in US > Japan)... and might I mention less cute girls on average are willing to cosplay as well... :-(

<peeks behind flame shield>

Sorry I just wanted to say it as it is... this is just my honest opinion of living in the US for 2 years after coming from Asia... ^_^ ;

I think that's beause Kakashi has his mouth covered, so its relatively easy to cosplay him. Same with Zabuza.

Btw, this Jiraiya is pretty well-done too. Though his expression reminds me of Orochimaru.

well, good luck finding an asian girl with green eyes.

You should invest in green contact lenses.

it's not easy being blind (spare a thought for half-blind idiots like moi who can't walk to the bathroom without their glasses).

i'd like to cosplay but i can't sow and un-like japan, i'm never going to find a ready-to-buy costume in this godforsaken hole!

but i have laughed, and cried, attempted to stab out my eyes, and drooled (damn that kinky goth anbu).

Copy Ninja - your Kakashi hair looks great.. looks just like it! Love your buddy's Zabuza cleaver too.. haha.. it's so damn huge.

Trin - that team Gai pic is great too. All of their poses are just right, and each of the cosplayers carry a good likeness to their anime counterparts.
