What the hell is wrong with people these days? We’ve had some pretty disturbing cosplay stories in the past, but this one takes the cake.

Cosplayer Aigue-Marine accepted to do a Skype interview in her cosplay outfit for David Mirra’s Facebook page, “Cosplay: Not Just A Hobby.” The interviewer was Mirra’s girlfriend. When the Skype interview started, everything seemed normal with your “How did you get into cosplay?” and etc. After the initial cosplay questions, Mirra’s girlfriend then asked her if she wanted to participate in a quiz. The prize was going to be a $2,000 laptop. She figured there’d be no harm in participating, so she tried it out.

Things took a turn for the weird when she got an answer wrong and the girlfriend asked her to take a piece of accessory/clothing off. She didn’t want to do it, but the girlfriend pressured her still. Check out the interaction below.

[22:27:22] : “its not stripping, it’sjust a simple apron to try out the last two questions … -_-
[22:28:20] : and i’m not recording. i don’t need this kind of stuff.
[22:28:49] : because it is just the rule of the quiz, our sponsor doesn’t give free laptops.
[22:29:04] : no, because there is no video.
[22:29:09] : we just make it hard to win it.
[22:29:27] : it is simple, stand and remove the apron and we try a last question. it’s a prize after all.
[22:29:40] : no, i’m just trying to make you win something that has a value
[22:29:57] : just an apron, then you stop.
[22:30:08] : obviously no one is forcing you! i don’t want it :)”

Yeah, that’s some weird shit right there. A part of me really wants to meet these “people” and well…it wouldn’t be pretty.

Here’s a tip for you cosplayers out there, ask them what kind of questions they’re going to be asking and if there’s going to be a surprise they should know about. And as for these weird interviews, let’s cut that crap out, since it’s not nice to force people to do something they don’t want to do.

From around the web:
  • Rob Wrecks

    Way to rub someone the wrong way.

  • James Campbell

    On the other hand, if these female cosplayers want to run around half naked they shouldn’t be offended when someone gives them the attention their daddy didn’t.

    • Taylor Guest

      What is WRONG with you?

    • M&Ms

      Cosplay is not Consent.

    • Marionetta

      Because we’re playing a character who wears skimpy clothes? Oh, how hilarious. So, when I cosplay Delirium, who wears a leather jacket with a fishnet top, I DESERVE to get groped? I don’t. Because that’s how Delirium dresses. It’s the same for a lot of other female characters. They dress that way.
      Just because a cosplayer dresses skimpily, does not mean they want people to grope them.

    • Chris Curtis

      By your logic then folks who dress as zombies should expect to be shot in the head…because they dressed as the undead then they MUST be asking for it!

    • Haruna_Saotome

      Seriously? You’re a fucking dick for saying that. Just because someone cosplays and portrays a character, whatever that character may be, doesn’t give fucking pigs like you rights to anything. It doesn’t give you pigs any rights to touch, grab or do whatever you want to another human. Fuck anyways.

  • Britany M

    So obnoxious. Let not be creeps to cosplayers, weird interviewer person.

  • Fortuna Veritas

    Women, they can be creepers too.

    • Joybug

      absolutely they can, fully agreed. I’m female and I don’t act that way, but I’ve seen it happen to men as well. I think the point is that creeping in general has to stop. Its one thing to ask someone if you can get a picture with your arm around them or ask for a hug, its another to think you have the right to touch someone in any way at all or make outrageous requests to cosplayers who might be too afraid to say no (I know some people who are so shy they wouldn’t know how to tell someone to leave them alone). We need to, as a community, stop people from doing things like these to both males and females. we need to protect each other and ourselves. The first step is to spread awareness.

  • GETH Prime

    Out Rageous! I hope the IMT know of this.

  • Steve

    As much as I agree that this is weird and creepy, I think we’re going a bridge too far when we start saying someone is “forcing” someone to do anything in these situations. These women are adults, and it’s on Skype; the interviewer and ask, plead, cajole, whatever–it’s up to the girls to draw the line. There’s no danger and no way these folks can actually exert force to make you do something you don’t want to do.

  • Ruby Spitfire

    is this the same guy who was posing as a employee and asking girls to strip in skype chat, about a year ago? disgusting that this is still going on and he hasn’t been stopped

  • Lana Lethal

    This is horrible. Why do people have to be this way.

  • Lana Lethal

    And I would like to state: That a female Cosplayer wearing a costume that is to mimic a comic book/video game character is not running around half naked asking to be harassed and verbally abused. We don’t dress this way and then ask for your disgusting two cents. We dress for the love of the characters.
    Why does everyone think its ok to bash on women who are mimicking a character, that yes may be a little less dressed then we normally would, But if a man is Cosplaying a character that is depicted without a shirt its totally fine and no one says anything?
    Men like this James Campbell guy below is what is wrong the scene.

  • Joybug

    agreed, people, both male and female, wear cosplays for their own enjoyment, not for the enjoyment of every creeper out there who thinks they have the right to touch or make disgusting requests. People should be able to enjoy their cosplays and feel comfortable with themselves without having to worry about someone taking advantage of them for it.

  • Shantel knight

    There was someone saying they were from the the people who run it asking to interview Cosplayers and in the end having them take their clothes off I got messages by them and since I’d heard about that was I called them out on it.

    • Momo Kurumi

      The scammers have no association to The website is as dead as a door nail, and C.c have denied any such association, or similar activities. They’ve never done and probably never will do interviews, legit or not. D:
