some of the characters would look better as white people, like naruto, everything about naruto screams white boy, hell, he even fights like a white boy.

and yet... we are yet to see a good "whiteboy" Naruto cosplay... why? because we get fatasses like that whiteboy on the first page...

not all whiteboys are fat... hell no... yet it seems like so many of the damn Naruto fans how cosplay... are.... *drumroll* FAT WHITEBOYS! who don't appreciate the whole art of cosplay

yes... i think it is an art... why? because if u actually look good... n have a good cosplay costume, it can turn out to be really cool/beautiful... an art form in itself...

I know... all the white people who've tried to do naruto have been fat, damn shame, maybe I'll dye my hair blond and do it, take a picture and post it.

I might be a little tall for a 12 year old boy though...

almost no asian people are over weight and/or really tall, just look at all of the cosplay pics. and also, doesnt it seem that all of the people who cosplay as zabuza look the most realistic?

Oh yes there are a lot fat asain people, and im not just talking about sumo wrestlers. They just dont have a 60% obesity rate like we have here in america.
But you're half right, any country compared to america looks skinny.

There are fat and skinny people everywhere and I have seen a few in Japanese cosplay websites too.

As for Naruto, whatever race the cosplayer may be, I havn't seen any that really resembles him in looks and attitude so far...

Yes its still considered "nerdy", but to a lesser degree (nowhere near star trek level!) and much more accepted. For the most part, what passes for cool here, passes for cool over there as well and vice versa. "Cool" is universal.

The reason why American cosplayers look bad in comparison is because the community here is nowhere near as established as it is in Japan (for obvious reasons). Also consider the fact that even most Anime fans shun cosplay here in the states, who does that leave? The fat nerds (with a few exceptions, as with anything).

thats true. Very true....i am chubby myself...wel not Monstrous but still quite big. i have like more like a cylinder shaped upper body naah i jus kiddin. Well i am a little bit chuby. But i am BIG for a 19 year old.

But that doesn´t mean i am gonna go out and cosplay like Naruto.
Reason 1. I am about 6'1 feet tall.
Reason 2: Black hair.
Reason 3: deep dark brown eyes.
Reason 4:a bit chubby.
Thats like the total contrast of naruto

Also i haven´t found anyone that i resemble. South americans don´t resemble many manga figures well i once saw one that looke much like Joe from fatal fury
(the kickboxer). i would like to do a cosplay someday. But if so. Then someone i look like. For good or bad.

Eikichi.....
Haven´t you discovered the little amazing thing on the bottom right of your post called the edit button?

Sorry to burst your bubble but go back to the first page of this thread and look the top right picture on my post, then try and say that again.

hmmm honestly tho

i think the main reason is because...

the characters in most anime... well definately Naruto... are mainly based on an ASIAN physique...

as in... even the jounins have a slim physique... which makes it hard sometimes for americans to do it... becuase they tend to have a larger build... even if they are fit... they'll have a lot more muscles which will not fit... whereas the japanese people have a slimmer build... and even if they are muscular... it doesn't show as much....

i forgot the scientific terms for this i knew them before
but it was like this:

there was one type of physique that most americans and europeans were classified under... they have a larger build... muscles are more defined and they are bulkier even when fit...

another type... is what some americans and some europeans are... its an in between.... defined muscles but not as obvious... and aren't as bulky...

finally the last build is the asian build... smaller and skinnier... and even when fit/buff... the muscles aren't as obvious hehehe

Red face

Well we all have race "bumps" that maybe doesn't allow us to mime our favorite anime characters....

As for example... I'm a hybrid. I have a honey-like natural tan (almost indian or something like that), white features on my face, asian body and afro hair type. =\
Not a good combination to play any anime character.
Still I have the hopes of one day being able to play Vegeta (my fave DBZ char) or Rock Lee (my fave Naruto char). I hope make-up and wigs can do the trick.

In the case of americans/japanese... yeah well it is true that there's a lot of fat japanese, but by default in their DNA, they tend to be smaller and thinner as a race than the rest of the races. But as you all anime fans could already guess.... they make their anime with the exagerations they love about the other races (in the women at least).... you can see the big breasts, the long legs and the eye/hair color, and the figure in most anime girls.....which their japanese women commonly don't have.
