Matsuri Festival!

Post  Kristinestfu on Tue Jan 18, 2011 1:10 am

GUYS!
I found out the matsuri festival is soon too. Well. <_< Like a month and a half or so soon.
But still close enough for me to be all "YAYAYAY" about it.

Just wanted everyone to know that. ._.

Too many cosplayers that just want to get dressed in their outfits and the same mostly boring vendors every time. but I might go anyway because the food is usually good. I can usually get some interest in the martial arts demos.

I've always thought it somewhat disrespectful and distracting for people to show up in cosplay at Matsuri... but that's just me, I guess.

I dunno about distracting, but I agree it's disrespectful. It kinda reaffirms the fact that the american population only sees the culture of Japan as being anime.

I always thought that it was a bit disrespectful too. I mean, having a few people there dressed up would be representing a piece of the culture, but when it becomes predominately cosplayers, it does start to become a stereotype. The Lolita type is starting to become that way at Matsuri too. Not as bad though.

I'm glad i'm not the only one that feels that way.

When i went and saw all the cosplayers i was incredibly irritated. <_<

Well I always felt that Matsuri should be like... an actual Japanese culture celebration. It's just really disturbing that so many people only view it as just another opportunity to cosplay.
