Anonymous asked: I've noticed that hee-hee tends to do more boy cosplays, and hopie does more female cosplays! lately at least. is this on purpose? btw love you guys<3
I wouldn’t say that it’s “on purpooose”. Hee-Hee genuinely does enjoy crossplaying and the difficulties that come from trying to play a different gender, but Hopie has cosplayed many boys as well and vice versa with female cosplays!
We always choose characters that we really LOVE; Hee-Hee tends to pick a character whose personality she finds interesting or fun. And (unfortunately, if we want to look at this issue as a whole), male characters tend to be written and created with more diverse personalities. That isn’t to say that some of her favorite characters AREN’T female, of course, but as a whole most of the flawed and crazy types she enjoys just happen to be male. Even by design, male characters have the opportunity for a FAR broader spectrum of designs than females (again, not always the case, but it seems this way as a whole in the fandoms that we’re interested in). Maybe its a stigma to have too many female characters who are wacky, insane, “ugly”, or despicable- it’s hard to say and we certainly can’t try to answer for the industry~!
And Hopie, well, she likes all things kawaii and cute- so she’s definitely more inclined to enjoy female characters!
c: Thank you for the message!
Anonymous asked: You guys should totally come to Anime Central in Chicago(ish). The entire town is basically taken over by cosplayers and con-goers. The convention center and all the nearby hotels are completely booked solid months in advance. Estimated attendance this year should be close to, if not over, 30,000 people! TONS OF PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES!
It sounds claustrophobic but FUN! C: We do need to get out to more out- o- state cons! Maybe we can give that one a try some day!!
