During last weekend's Denver Comic Con at the Colorado Convention Center, the streets of Denver were full of people wearing costumes saluting their favorite comics characters and superheroes, in a celebration of the scene. But one spectator was not impressed. Says Amanda:
Dressing up in black and red lingerie and calling it Harley Quinn is not cosplay.
Anything is cosplay. There are no rules that say what cosplay is. There should be no hate toward any cosplayer no matter what they are wearing.
