I don't think it's generic and bland. Actually, the lack of cleavage is better, every woman from steampunk fantasies and stuff look like Emilie Autumn (aka: a "wayward girl"...), and other than that, nothing really changed, in my opinion at least... And I'm on the feminist side this time, because I want her to be independent, for selfish reasons obviously: I HATE defending characters in games, so I'd rather trust the npc's instincts to cover their own ass.

You said as if that was a bad thing... it isn't

Anyway great cosplay although I liked Anna's femshep better

Granted, it's not the end of the world, but it's a huge and annoying lack of imagination... And when we talk FANTASY, if there is something everyone should DEMAND is a shit load of amounts of imagination. I mean, Emile Autumn IMPERSONATES a "wayward victorian girl", but really, EVERY woman is gonna look like that? Even a character that so far seems to be a by-the-book good girl (even if she has badass powers and can take care of herself)?

Heh, her cosplay for Mass Effect should be in a fucking AAA MOVIE lol

I don't typically express this sentiment publicly, and I apologize if anyone finds it offensive/misogynistic/chauvanistic/etc., but... sweet jumpin' jehoshaphat, that woman is gorgeous. And her cosplay is pretty top-notch as well.

It's pretty sad the gaming community has been so shamed by outside sources and writers/hosts within gaming journalism lately that people are terrified of finding a female character or model for a character attractive, or at least voicing it. Fearing the finger pointing and labeled an "objectifier".

You're not a bad person or obectifying her for just thinking she's beautiful and appreciating her work. It's other people that have the problem if they take issue with so basic.

Tarkand:
Wait what... generic and bland?

You're showing a video game character with impossible proportion... and then right beside, a beautiful woman wearing the exact same outfit, but from a different angle (Blue skirt, white corset, blue jacket - You can even see the 'cleavage window')... and you think the real woman is generic and bland?

Shesh.

By generic and bland he of course actually means normal and realistic. If you compare the two images..

I dno, I liked the character art more when they were showing it off in the Trailers:

Before the feminists went through it: http://www.oxm.co.uk/47662/features/the-oxm-breakdown-women-in-videogames/

And it turned into this:

She looks kind of bland and generic now.

The screenshot has a stylised cartoon-like quality to it. The wallpaper on the other hand takes exactly the same concepts and delivers something more in the direction of Hollywood-style realism. This is of course as the saying goes horses for courses. There really isn't a hard, solid right answer to this sort of decision of art direction unless the market decides to bankrupt your ass.

I do wonder however just exactly how long it will take the feminist collective to start harping on companies that hire good lookin' geeky seamstresses like this lady instead of your normal run of the mill booth babes.

I'm sure as hell not going to. I don't see why some of us would in the first place. Good on the company for hiring a gamer dedicated to cosplay.

Despite what you might see on the internet, feminists are comprised of women (and men) that have differing opinions on different issues. We don't all think nor act the same.

Wow. I'm jelly of her cosplay skills. Hell, I have a hard time looking good in normal clothes.

You see, I really don't like booth babes. This on the other hand? I have no problems with this.

I was going to say something else, but then I saw her cosplaying Shepard, and...well...my God. I now understand what people mean when they say someone is so beautiful it leaves them speechless.

Wait, they actually changed the character's look a little bit? Her face looked terrible when I first saw it, it was positively cartoonish. It looks much better now, but it still looks like a pretty boring and shitty character to me. The cosplayer has done a fine job and at least she actually looks like a real person now, but I won't be impressed by a story like this until I see a male cosplayer get this kind of attention.

Seems like bringing in cosplayers to portray hot female side characters is becoming a new marketing thing, big surprise there!
