You say “cosplay,” I say . . . well, I don’t know what to say.

Okay, so we’ve established that it’s not nice to laugh at people, unless they are deliberately behaving stupidly so as to provoke laughter. I’m going to take a chance and assume (and hope, and pray) that this guy falls into the latter category with his spectacularly awful improvised cosplay costumes.  Via i09:

Meet Anucha “Cha” Saengchart. By day, he works as a caretaker for the elderly. In his free time, he runs Facebook page Lowcost Cosplay. Instead of tracking down special fabrics or other materials, the idea is that you cosplay by using whatever you have in the house—like eating utensils, plungers, towels, baking flour, etc.

Here are a few of my favorites, side by side with their inspirations:

I used to feel like I don’t understand cosplay. Now I feel like I don’t understand anything.

    No, I think it’s “You say ‘banana,’ I say ‘banahna.”
    I also say compared to some Internet contributions from Asia, this is downright normal-looking.

      No you say banana, I say “nanner”.

    I hope he’s poking fun at cosplayers. The banana one is TOO funny.

    In my elementary school days I used to recreate battles on the top of my bed using coins instead of toy soldiers. We were too poor to afford playthings. My inspiration for this activity was WW2.

    I dunno, this reminds me of the lengths we used to go to for children’s halloween costumes. I really didn’t want to buy stuff for that event. One year, we used a child’s rain slicker and a short garden hose to make a fireman costume. We made Christmas gift costumes with boxes and leftover wrapping paper. A white sheet made a ghost costume for at least 3 years I remember. I admire this guy’s creativity, lowcost is a feature, not a bug.
