Wow. Just wow.

So I posted my favorite Zhang He cosplay picture on a Koei games message board...and learned that I was featured on Destructoid just a couple of days ago.

Have I really won? Really? Yes. I'm proud of the craftsmanship on that costume. I enjoy wearing and presenting it. Mach13 of DeathCom Multimedia did an awesome job photographing me. And I would love the chance to cosplay in exchange for free Dynasty Warriors merchandise. Hooray for schwag.

A few of the comments, though, go for the loss more so than the win.

Axiom of the Internet: if you publicly post something, it will eventually get ripped on. I can't care too much about some random assclown thinking they're the most cleverest person in the world by proclaiming that a niche hobby merits forced sterilization. It's the online equivalent of drawing dicks on dorm door white boards because nobody could have possibly thought of that before.

I thought it was awesome that Trunxy posted to compliment me.

I'd wager most of the people commenting there (including the OP) don't actually know they're looking at a picture of a woman--they're used to something more along the lines of Mitsunari's mom Da Ji when they envision the female form.

Considering that two different people in the Koei Warriors picture thread thought I was a guy, that wouldn't surprise me at all. I take it as a compliment - pretty as he may be, Zhang He is male - even if tired middle-school bullshit about HURR HURR COCK IN ASS comes along for the ride.

Best exchange EVAR in Orochi between Ginchiyo Tachibana and Zhang He:

ZH: "I thought you were a woman. Where's your sense of beauty?"
GT: "I thought you were a soldier. Where's your sense of masculinity?"

Ginchiyo pwnz ur mom.

That is epic. Do you remember what battle you got that on? Ginchiyo is one of my favorite characters, but I've never heard that exchange for myself.

It's awesome that they totally rock the inherent silliness of a crossover between ancient China and feudal Japan.

It's in Shu 2-X (I just played through it to check). I'm pretty sure all you have to do is approach Zhange He as Ginchiyo and make sure you don't kill him before they can finish the exchange (which is an issue, since our Ginchiyo is currently level 80+)

I have to run through more levels with Keiji Maeda. I'm sure he has some good stuff for me in the name of our creepy snake overlord guy.

But of course. ^_^

Ogre is the FFXI wizard around here. He had the voice chat turned up so he could run upstairs and not miss out. I'm not sure what he's doing right now, but it seems to be pretty hardcore.

dude, that came out really nice! did you end up cutting/dyeing your hair for it? and how's life/cats? =P

KIIIIIIIM! *squee* It's great to hear from you!

The costume hair is a wig. My hair is still the same color and down to my butt.

Life is pretty good. Work has been nutty lately, but overall I'm enjoying it. Hobby-wise, I've been obsessing over Warriors Orochi and not doing much else constructive. The cats are five years old and still think they're kittens. Chester is sleeping on his platform behind me. Cookie is probably hanging out in the basement with Randy. She loves to help him play FFXI.

How's it going for you?

Things are going great here! Jonathan and I finally live together with my kitten Jasmine (now 1.5 yrs old), and we're planning our wedding for next May! Er, well, I'm planning and occasionally running things by him, and then ignoring his opinions ;)

I like how all of the comments on destructoid are utter crap. I do remember reading about this somewhere... kind of suprised you haven't shared it :p

But yeah, congratulations on getting ripped off on Destructoid, I suppose. Nice that they don't even mention where the image comes from...
