Assignment: Make a blog post stating who you will interview for your blog. Include 10-15 interview questions.
Since I interviewed before receiving this assignment, I will post the questions I asked the cosplayers at Animation on Display.
- What negative experiences have you had with cosplaying?
- Have you ever been put down or insulted in person? Describe.
- Why do you think people gave you negative feedback?
- (cont) Was it your costume, appearance, weight, looks?
- Do you think girls get criticized for their cosplaying more often than guys? How so?
- What do you think of the “fake geek girl” concept?
- Have other’s opinions ever stopped you from wearing a certain costume? Describe.
- Should women be allowed to wear what they want without fear of criticism, leering, or other negative feedback, even if the costume is “sexy”, revealing, and/or skintight? Why?
- Have any cosplaying experiences in the news/media particularly stood out to you?
- What advice do you have for female cosplayers who are afraid to cosplay because of all the negative feedback?
