    Cosplay O_o;

    Alright... so I'm going to be a bit delicate as the topic is of a slightly more adult nature: but I have to express my continuing amazement at just how kinky Japanese people are for the level of public prudishness they tend to be famous for!

    I'm dating a Japanese boy and we've been together for about 3 months. I'm also the owner of a maid outfit (an old work uniform from when I used to part-time at a cafe a few years back). Discovery of said maid outfit in my closet has him flipping out. Now, an American guy might say "nice halloween costume", but to a Japanese man... apparently this is like opening the closet and finding three naked women inside.

    Tonight he had a few drinks and he's been texting me for over an hour "making plans" for this maid outfit. He's even bringing a suit the next time he comes over so we can "cosplay together" O_o; He's got me calling him "goshujinsama" (master) in emails and is suddenly eclaiming his love for me every 12 seconds >_<

    And he's NOT a geek in the least. He's just a normal guy.

    No wonder maid cafes get so much business if this is the sort of response a costume can elicit O_o;

    Do non-Japanese people get this excited about costumes? Should I invest in a nurse outfit in my bid for an engagement ring? O_o;

    ps. that "Lost in Translation" thing was apparently based a bit in reality... he also mentioned something about "ripping my stockings"!!

    This isn't as weird as it seems and not really confined to the Japanese either.
    Role play has often been mentioned in publications about spicing up your sex life or your relationships.
    And the domination angle is ancient as well.

    You probably need to go cat-girl for that.

    Looking at the thread I thought Tsurara was going to make fun of Americans cosplayers.

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I like the way you think Legend, but if she wants a the ring she needs a modified sailor girl outfit. Complete with wand and tiara for the perfect sexy magical girl look.

    Do non-Japanese people get this excited about costumes?
    OF COURSE!!!!!!

    The most important thing is that you would be comfortable doing this for your BF.

    Yea it can be quite an interesting thing to do for someone. It can also be extreamly fun as well. But sometimes it can be quite an expensive thing to get into. Atleast here in the us sometimes. But if you can make them yourself it's great!

    I don't think the magical girl would do anything for him... he's not into anime or manga at all (he actually seems to think it's sort of lame... which is why the whole maid-moe thing has me a little thrown-for-a-loop... were he a nerd, I'd have expected it)

    MOE!?!?! You never said anything about moe. How big is this maids outfit anyway?

    If the door is open for the maid outfit more outfits will surely follow. So don't think Magical Girl outfits are out of the question.
