The culture in Graphic Design of cleaning up people past the point of reality extends into Cosplay. It’s really too bad that so much work is put into making someone look too perfect.

We feature a lot of cosplay on this site, and I believe even this exact picture once or twice, so it sort of makes me sad to discover it’s a fake.

Well, in a sense. The boobs remain the same before the retouching (shocking) but everything from arm pudge to laugh lines have been altered for the final version of the picture we’ve all seen.
