I was siitting here this evening thinking of an interesting conundrum. You see there are two groups of people that dress up in outlandish outfits and go to events. The first category being sports fans, and the second being cosplayers. Now when we think about this logically how is it any different to dress up in your favorite team gear, with paint all over your face, to go to a game versus dressing up in your favorite garb or as your favorite character and going to a Con? I see no difference. In fact once may say they are quite similar. So next time you laugh at someone dressing up as a Victorian lady, think about if you have a sports jersey in your closet of your favorite sports player. You are woven of the same cloth.
Seriously thee proof is in the pudding here.
