That "I Hate Cosplayers" guy?

So, anyone know what was up with the guy that wore a sandwich sign saying "I Hate Cosplayers"? I asked him at one point if he was serious or just trolling the con For The Lulz; his response was, "Neither." At some points he had some people wear the sign while he took pictures, or stood beside cosplayers and had someone else take them.

It's a joke. He IS a cosplayer and the cosplay is a spin on something from Die Hard 3.

Here's a description of the scene taken from Wikipedia:

[quote]After a bomb explodes in the early morning at the Bonwit Teller department store in New York City, a man calling himself "Simon" telephones the police claiming responsibility, and demands that they play a game of "Simon Says" to prevent any more explosions. Simon orders suspended NYPD Lt. John McClane walk through Harlem wearing a sandwich board displaying racist slurs.[/quote]

Pretty funny cosplay, if you ask me, though really daring to do with the likely chance of people not getting the reference.

Watch the movie "Die Hard: With a Vengence". He was actually cosplaying as John McClane. :)

My guess is that he was an artist who went to the con for the fun stuff, but had to put up with cosplayers, which he hates? I saw him running a table in the art room so I'm just assuming that.

You mean even more fun to do with no-one getting the reference.
And its only sort of a reference.
Maybe I really am that mean, hateful guy.
Hopefully I'll see you all @ Connecticon.

[color:#4981CE]I'm surprised that guy didn't get a lot of grief; I thought he was funny, but I bet a few people who didn't quite get it got irritated..[/color]

When I saw him I couldn't help but laugh. It was just too funny XD But if people are taking offense they should really think...would someone who dislikes anime really go to diss it for the price of a ticket, transportation, and hotel? Some people just need to think it through~ But if someone did actually do that then they'd just loose a ton of money, so it's like instant karma! XD Great Job "I Hate Cosplayers" guy. Hope to see even more next year! ^-^

Well.... Yeah I saw him, worth a quick laugh just do to the ironic fact that he himself was cosplaying, even if it was the one guy just wearing a cardboard sign still counts as joke.
Your not exactly the brightest match in the cave if you didnt get the joke.

I didn't get the joke. But the sandwich board felt like a cop-out next to the Gurren Lagann and Haruhi cosplayers.

Although, I do feel that sometimes the media's attention is too much on the Cosplayers and not the general congoers. Anime cons are more than just cosplayers.
