Let's talk about pantyhose… With a Leggy Cosplay Overload!!!!

Leggy Cosplay Overload!!!!

I will often times get a message or a comment stating that a cosplay would be “sexier” without dance tights or pantyhose. I want to explain something here. NO! First, always dance tights. Pantyhose have weird gussets and lines. If not on the sides of the hips, at least in the crotch. It’s not attractive. And although they are cheaper than tights (about $3 compared to $15) they will likely snag within minutes and are easily ruined.  So lets go over a few guidelines and reasons why this is a necessary part of every cosplay.

  1. Clean lines. Dance tights streamline a cosplay. They tighten up a figure and smooth out any lumps and bumps that a lady might feel insecure about. They also cover up spider veins, light bruises, and dimples. Legs also get cold. What happens when they get cold? Chicken skin. And that’s not so attractive. It doesn’t photograph well and it’s not comfortable.
  2. Children are present. Cons are family events. Cosplayers are under enough scrutiny without some girls snatchitals flapping in the wind. Forgive my bluntness but it’s true. Sure the average pervert thinks this is fantastic but the average parent wants your head on a stick. I have seen this happen many times. And guess what bitch! This sort of disrespectful behavior is what gets cosplays put under stringent guidelines.
  3. It’s a safety issue. Unfortunately, there are people out there that will attempt to violate a female cosplayer. These tights practically go up to your neck. No one is slipping a finger in there.

So feel free to rock that Cammy, Elektra, Velma, Supergirl, and any other cosplay you love. Just play it safe, family friendly, and clean with some dance tights.

And for you guys out there, if your rockin some lycra or spandex, wear a dance belt.

Hi friends :)

I apologize for the delay. I have been so busy with my new cosplay book. It is now in numerous stores fro Wyoming to Texas and everywhere in-between. I am working on packaging and shipping as well as contacting more stores. I have also been taking some time to shoot some fun new things.

Let”s take a minute to talk about that. The word Cosplay. it means Costume-Play. And it it SO MUCH FUN. there are no rules as to what you can and can’t cosplay. So feel free to explore and get out of your comfort zone.

SO: Here are some fun new shots from Alvin Johnson Photography with my new friend Mindi. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. And get a copy of my new Cosplay Photobook from http://183degreestudio.com
