I just checked that site out and looked at some of the deviants.
So, is it some tranny cosplay site? That's the impression I got. I mean they were dudes, weren't they?
LOL - Welcome to why I no longer go there.
I had such High Hopes for it. The Main Problem there is that the 'Brass' isn't looking for "Pin-Up Models" - they want to be 'inclusive' and let all types of girls pose - and strangely enough, the "Hotter" Pin-Up types are treated "nicely" but get kind of discouraged I think (some have admitted in the past) that the "plumper chicks" get better treatment.
It's almost "The Hotter you are" - the less you will succeed because there is an 'Inner-Circle' chicks that like a certain "Type" of model - so if you're too Pretty it creates the wrong 'buzz' in the sandbox. I haven't been involved in over a year but that's how I was when I left.
Yes, they have dudes (but it's really 1 guy for every 6-8 models) and oddly enough - it's think "gamer looking" or joke looking guys...No actual 'Nerds' - no guys or Otaku types. So we have 40% females as "Plump Chicks" and fit & in-shape guys... That should tell you how 'slanted the site' is. OH, and 30% have giant Tattoo's that completely clash with the character- lol.
I could spend hours listing whats wrong on Cosplay D. I just wanted to see Mai Naked - relax! - lol.
Cosdevs is just so MEDIOCRE. Honestly Mai, perfect choice of word. Their models aren't so hot, wigs aren't so great, costumes aren't so accurate, and posing isn't so natural.
If it was cosplay nudes I'd rather them do it like great cosplay shots that just happen to be appropriately nude in-character than OOC softcore porn for no reason.
Sets that would make sense:
Nude Chii on Tatami
Lucy in lab
Ayanami Rei(s) in lab
Horo in apples/wheat field
Bra-less Ariel in sea/newly human Ariel on beach
Mid-transformation Magical Girls
Battle-worn Queen's Blade Charas
Bathing episode of any cast ever (must be accurate)
I completely Agree. They are 'Stone-Age' compared to models like Alisa Kiss and Kassandra Leigh and the girls you see on Sancom's idol page.
Playboy could shit better naked Cosplayers by simply throwing darts at a board and picking characters w/ Costumes out of hat.
It all boils down to 1 truth (among others) - who wants to see chunky girls naked do ANYTHING!! unless you like 'Chunky girls' that is. I used to cut CosDev alot of slack because I suspect it's hard to get 'Novice' models to pose naked on the web for NO $$...but the sites had MANY chances to up it's cred and never moves in favor of "PIN-UP calibur" chicks.
