28 Heartwarming Reasons Why Cosplayers Choose Their Characters

I asked attendees at L.A. Cosplay Con what drew them to the characters they chose. Here’s what they said.

Cosplay Cons are the only place to find Katniss Everdeen, Sleeping Beauty, and The Punisher all in one room. This weekend, I asked cosplayers for the reason they chose the character they were portraying.

Boss Leaves Employee Savage Note Scolding Him For Playing Pokmon Go

Pokmon Go is Nintendo’s latest attempt to destroy my life.

It used to just be I’d attempt tocontrol the chaos and uncertainty of the human conditionby simply collecting as many Pokmonas I could from the safety and stability of, say, a couch or a chair, or my bed at 5 in the morning as the sun rose and I still hadn’t slept because I’d spent all nighttrying to evolve my Eevee into an Umbreon.

Well, now, with Pokmon Go, an app where you travel around trying to catch Pokmon in the real world, people everywhereare wandering around with their phones out, suddenly and irrevocably addicted to capturing fake, digital monsters wherever they are.

You can find Pokmon anywhere, meaning the urge to always be playing is immense.

Case in point: this one bank employee who received a very stern letter about him playing Pokmon Go too much at work.

First of all, boss person, it’s “Catch ’em all” not “Catch them all,” you fucking nerd.

Second of all,you could’ve just walked up to him and told him to stop; you didn’t have to print out a graphic-heavy rebuke that would be extremely easy to make go viral (I would not be surprised if this was the plan all along).

Also, being a Pokmon trainer is a lifelong pursuit. You should be proud your employee is so committed to fulfilling his dreams. For a real trainer, there are no breaks. There are no vacations. Thisman is a hero.

Please watch this video to honor him.

Zookeeper Can’t Take It Anymore, Decides To Add Pokemon Go Signs Next To Animals

Pokemon Go has officially taken over the world, and whether you like it or not, resistance is futile. But one zookeeper in Birmingham, Alabama has recently come up with a great way to get fans of the massively popular game to pay more attention to the ACTUAL animals on display at Birmingham Zoo. How? She gave the zoo’s exhibit signs a Pokemon Go makeover!

She made the signs after noticing that many people were visiting the zoo just to capture Pokemon. So in order to try to engage them with the exhibits, she decided to make them more Pokemon-friendly. “Decided to jump on the Pokémon Go hype train at the zoo!” wrote the anonymous zookeeper on a Tumblr page called zookeeperproblems. “Hey, if you can’t beat ‘em…” (h/t: dorkly)
