|What is the purpose of Krasivaya Cosplay Love, and why was it created?|
The purpose of this group is to collect beautiful cosplay from around the world! I wanted to create this group because I absolutely LOVE cosplay, and to cosplay also! It's very difficult making the costumes, and taking time to make sure that they are perfect, and I wanted cosplayers from all over to be appreciated, even if their art on here is not very popular, because some of the best cosplays that I've seen are not as popular as they should be!
Why is the group called "Krasivaya Cosplay Love"?
I wanted to have a cute name for my group, but I also wanted it to have a name that states what the group is basically about, since I’ve seen groups where the name has absolutely nothing to do with what the group even does! I know that I still have to explain it because the first word is in Russian! I wanted to make the name personal, because there are so many other cosplay groups at DeviantArt, and I didn’t want my group to have the same name as any other group! I wanted my group to be distinct, because sometimes groups have very similar names, and I didn’t want mine to be confused with another!
“Krasivaya” means ‘beautiful’ or ‘pretty’ in Russian. I was going to name the group “Krasivaya Cosplay Lyubov”, but then I think it would be more difficult to comprehend at first glance for those who are not able to read Russian. So, I thought using the word “love” would make more sense, and it does sound a lot cuter! I also wanted to have the word “cosplay” in it so that people would know that it is a “cosplay” based group! Why “Russian”, you ask? Because I speak Russian, of course! Russian is my favourite language that I’ve learned, because it’s the easiest for me to pronounce, and the most fun to sing in! I think that when I pronounce Japanese words, it is a bit of work, because I have to actually try very hard not to sound so American, but Russian words come easy to me!
***I do apologize if the way that you Romanize the original Russian Cyrillic is different, but this is the proper way that I’ve learned! My native Russian friend also learned it this way too, so this is how I Romanize them! It would be easier to type in Cyrillic, but, unfortunately, I do not have a Cyrillic keyboard, and do not know how to type in Cyrillic using this Microsoft Word 2010 program! I sometimes use the keyboards online, but they are not always accurate, so I often have to fix the words if I type their Romanized words in the text box! It is also very difficult to use the keypad version of the mouse if I click on the online keyboard! (Sorry if this doesn’t make sense, but those who have used an online keyboard understand what I’m talking about!)***
What is acceptable to contribute?
A variety of cosplay may be contributed! You may contribute cosplays from anime, manga, movies, games, or anything else that you can think of! Original cosplays are also accepted, as long as they have an explanation of what they are! I have not watched a lot of anime, nor read a lot of manga, but I still do enjoy seeing a lot of wonderful cosplays! I do not want to discriminate, so “inappropriate” or “mature” cosplay may be contributed as long as they have a filter on! And yes, homosexual themes are allowed too!
I will have different folders for all of the art to be in once I get enough artwork to organize! If you are submitting something, please make sure that it has the name of the character(s) that are being cosplayed, and state what game, anime, manga (etc.) that the characters are from! Otherwise, I may not recognize the character, and will put it in the future “Miscellaneous” folder!
***EXCEPTION: "ALL 'HETALIA: AXIS POWERS' ART IS BANNED"!!!***
