Cosplayers tend to dress up as fictional characters from other worlds and realms, characters with superpowers and mutations. That's why it's nice to see cosplayers using their skills to pay tribute to the very real country that we live in. And cosplayers should show some gratitude for the US of A because cosplay is illegal in most other countries. I don't know if this is true. I'm just carrying on the American tradition of making bold statements and never ever fact-checking them.
