Elena Dorfman’s Fandomania: Characters & Cosplay is a disturbingly judgemental representation of cosplay, lacking academic backing in its assumptions and painting participants of this hobby in an ill light.

Hence, seeing this note someone had left in the library copy of it amused (and pleased) me immensely.

I’m doing a research assignment about the appeal of cosplay for University/College; I’ll set up another Tumblr account and link it here when I do.
