Time for a Buster? Time for someone to get busted. I'm not sure anyone has caught this, but I was appalled at one of the winning entries for Week 37: Mr. Popo. The cosplay is very accurate and good, but what disappointed me most was it was exactly the same as one of the previous entries by the same user.
In Week 14 of 2012, he posted the exact same entry, cosplay/avatar, description and placed. He reposted it last week and placed, with no variation whatsoever. Everything was exactly the same! If I had entered a cosplaying entry that could have won, I would have been enraged!
Tell me, is this common in the cosplay arena? When I was bored, I would backtrack and look at past entries. I saw several entries that were almost the same and incredibly similar, but there were still a few changes, albeit very minor. But this one takes the cake; it was exactly the same, as if the user put absolutely no effort in trying something new, or improving their entry (although there was probably nothing they could improve on).
