Okay,not sure about this but it seams that all costumes and styles have a place within a group.
The easy ones being: Star Wars (bad guys) belong with The 501st The Star wars good guys go with the Rebel Legion.
But where do things like Scorpion and or Superman go?
To DC conventions?
Har Har Har!!!
Okay, and Halo, Spiderman and other non anime comic and gaming characters. I mean, are they all considered Cosplay? When I think of Cosplay I just think of the Anime stuff. Surly, Spiderman is not Cosplay!?!

Cosplay, short for "Costume Play", simply means to dress up as and pretend to be a fictional character. The Japanese made the term Cosplay popular and is generally associated with Anime characters. In parts of Europe it's called "Fancy Dress". However Fancy dress is usually associated with historical figures at parties, but again it simply means dressing up in a costume. The US doesn't really have their own term for dressing up in costumes, well, except maybe Geeks!

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
