Heroes of Cosplay, Finale...

So as one of the fem doctors (fem 4) I like to say this, first off my post might be everywhere on whats going on and what happened but I am typing things as they come to my head so sorry in advanced if it seems all jumbled its just my mind is in a ticked off state at the present... anyways...

The show was edited poorly not to mention the dubbing they did over a lot of people to say things they really didn't say...

First off the show was to be called "Cosworld" and it was suppose to be a documentary show on cosplay at least that's what we where told. ONE HOUR before going on stage we where told that we where to be competing for cash prizes and we had to have a skit, we all looked at one another in shock and awe, the girl then informed us that the people who where being followed by Syfy weren't able to win these so called "cash prizes" which we found out later it was BULLCRAP, I mean don't get me wrong I was happy the fem 11 won the $500, we ended up giving it to fem 3 for all her hard work, she also spent her hard earned money on everything, it was something we all agreed upon prior, even tho we did it for fun and the shock of having all the fem 11 together with K-9, we didnt' expect to win anything, fem 3 did something really nice tho for us all and made little photo books of the fem 11's journey at comicon which was totally awesome!

The "How to train your dragon" girls told us they hadn't competed in years, and they where NOT there via Syfy channel which as we can tell otherwise cause we see them on tv with syfy every week since the show started. This also all happened during the judges' discussion of who gets what prizes, because we were told by the show staff that we needed to leave the audience and go behind the curtain.Which again after watching the show I can tell what was dubbed and what wasn't. Way to freaken edit and dub, syfy. #smh

Through a gap in the curtains, we saw one of the audience members who was also cosplaying as a doctor the 10th Doctor to be exact, I mean 40 other people saw her too, my husband sat right next to her! She stood up and yelled, "To all of you who are NOT SyFy plants, I love you.” and walk out of the room. Of course a cheer came up from the crowd and cosplayers or at least what was left of the crowd I mean after we did our skit everyone pretty much left, not to sound cocky but it's true, most of the people that had come up to our table as the con was going on said they would be there and tell there friends and family about it, it was the ONLY reason they would stay so late on a sunday.... not to mention so many being so frustrated with the show, retake after retake, my husband pointed out to me that him and his friend kept seeing people leave as re-takes kept happening, though our skit didn't have a retake it was boom done, mainly cause we kept it simple we didn't have time for anything other then that, we really couldn't fuck it up unless fem 11 would of passed out but even then we had a backup plan, since she had stage fright etc.

Also what syfy DIDN'T SHOW, was at the end of the show as we where heading back to the con floor, tired, hungry, grumpy cause everything took so long was fighting with security to get back to our table to get our things, not to mention when Chloe came up to us and questioned what happened back stage etc, and we explained to her what happened, it was all a misunderstanding and apologies took place even followed a group hug.

So don't be quick to judge on what happened, what syfy did was uncalled for dubbing and editing poorly, not to mention swapping what the show was to be able and not giving more info on what they had planned in the beginning, I am sure most of us could of came up with lighting and voices etc if we had more of a chance to do so, get both sides of the story before you hop.

I want to thank all the fem 11's supporters who have backed us up and stood by us and all the wonderful comments and msgs that have been sent to us, you guys rock!

I might add more to this later but for now I need to take a break and get my thoughts together.

Thank you,

PS... You can hear more on what happened in these links too...

Heroes of Cosplay

Okay first off yes this is the show myself and my friends are to be in ...

Second, we where told it was going to be called Cosworld and a documentary show on cosplay

We thought awesome !! ~  Documentary show? really?

Maybe a hour before going on stage we got told the show name was "Heroes of Cosplay" and we needed a skit we where competing for cash prizes... and we are going to be on tv on Syfy.

We thought interesting....

We spotted all the cosplay plants too that syfy brought in, we were told they wouldn't compete since they where professionals, We thought, okay good good... now we are armatures compared to Yaya Han and some of these other girls, found out one of the girls daddy is the guy who did the special effects and such for star wars and other movies, so you KNOW they have connections, as well as Jino's girlfriend who is a major bitch on wheels I honestly wouldn't be with a woman like that if I was a guy, I mean shes just using him for costumes shes always bitching and complaining, I don't know how he can put up with her, not to mention all the other people that are plants in the show, also not to mention they lied to our face saying, "We aren't here with Syfy" but seeing there faces on the show for the last 4 weeks, we smelled bull shit since the beginning #smh really?? and they competed of course *shakes head* I mean they had lights and sound and people moving there sets and holy crap !!! we had NONE of that!

So time to see how we get edited, we get 2 episodes next Tuesday the 10th and the following week the 17th, I hope i got those nights off maybe ill see about going to our friends mom's to watch it ... if I am off work that is ... she is recording it for me so we will see ....

Either way the cosplay community is NOTHING like the show is showing, it was NEVER a competition as a community we always have FUN, being someone we are NOT on a regular bases, making new friends AND not judging people on shape size etc and not being judged ourselves...

So dont' let Heroes of Fakeplay discourage any of you out there, have fun =)
