Cosplay Caption Contest

 

While the primary focus of this site has always been exposing the dangers of bad fanfiction, the horrifying truth is that fanfiction is merely one sinister spectrum in the rainbow of terror known as the anime fandom. Another instrument of pain often employed by overzealous anime fans is cosplay. For the uninformed, cosplay (a combination of the words "costume" and "eyeball rape") is the name given to the dark ritual wherein ugly people dress themselves in bizarre garments that vaguely resemble those worn by their favorite fictional characters, then make their into public spaces to teach the innocent what it truly means to be afraid.

To help me alert the masses about the threat of idiots dressing up as Japanese cartoon characters, I turned to the loyal members of the Project AFTER Forums in an interactive feature called the Cosplay Caption Contest. This ingenious system involves me posting images from my private collection of the worst cosplay ever photographed, then letting the wonderfully sick minds of my fellow forum-goers think up witty captions for said images. The most hilarious captions submitted earn their authors the greatest prize anyone can receive: my respect.

Folks regularly submit such a satisfying selection of sarcastic slurs that I decided to feature their best entries here on the site. Listed below, you'll find compilations of past winning captions—along with several honorable mentions—collected into sets of several contests each. Enjoy!
