Giant Bomb Likes Cosplay

I wonder what the click hotspots on this pic were?

While doing research for the May Data Porn post, I ran across this little nugget. Turns out Giant Bomb loves cosplay, not sure why. Yesterday you bombers clicked this Anime Vice footer pomo 100% more times than on normal days. Any ideas why? Trying to be scientific-like with our footer promo images. There must be a method to your madness. Who's dressed as a furry right now?

Traffic Spike!

[UPDATE] Ohhhh, from what I gather from your comments, it was the BOOBS.

I don't know what that is, but it looks like porno. I think I've figured out the reason.
 
I'm not sure we can answer that question, actually. I collapse that footer so that I don't have to Page Up after hitting End. I imagine that a fair amount of others do that as well. Maybe it's from outsiders who came to see Giant Bomb's awesome cosplay galleries (if such things exist) and noticed that Anime Vice had even more cosplay to ogle. That's right, ogle.

I like cosplay

Does transforming into video game characters count as cosplay? If so, then fuck.

Posted by NegativeCero

I don't know who any of these characters are. Is Iron Man with a suit a thing? But, yeah boobs

Edited by wolf_blitzer85

It was definitely the boobs that got me.
 
Also cosplay is sometimes fun to look at, although I had no idea who most of those characters were.
 
Still boobs though.

People secretly liking Anime Vice, who would have thought. I never noticed because I always keep the footer promos turned off. 

Posted by Damodar

I... No comment. 
 
But I'm glad I clicked. I pretty much only knew about 5% of who the characters were, but the MODOKs were amazing.

That lady was fairly attractive.... i admit... i clicked.

I hide the footer to ignore the stuff down there but isn't the answer pretty obvious?

I like good cosplay, and especially if boobs were involved.
 
However the deadmau5 helmet was pretty sweet as well.

More like GAVE this man a raise... if you know what I mean...

I'll be here all week.

I was one of the ones that clicked and commented even. I like anime vice, I just don't like anime as much as I used to. Cosplay is universal.

Posted by Winternet

If by cosplay you mean boobs, then yes. Yes.

Posted by phrosnite

Yeap, I saw all the pictures... some good, some bad, some great....

Didn't know you could do that, nice.
(Although that now I'll miss the boobs...)

With bad jokes like that, you'll get fired before the day is over.

I'm shocked I didn't click on that promo but I was tempted. I see a link with a hot or decent looking girl attached I don't think i just click. 
I don't know whats wrong with me I think I have a cold coming on or something.

Posted by ethan

I think I get it.

Posted by RiotBananas

I hate Coldplay.

Posted by LordAndrew

I think the important question is, why is there no link to said cosplay in this thread?

@Claude: Id give him a raise, because he made ME RAISE OHHHH

There were boobs happening? Huh, I guess I must not have noticed with the slim footer.

Who is she dressed as anyway?
 
Eh, who cares.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Listen, for those times when you want to see boobs, without actually seeing boobs whilst also having those boobs attached to a costume of some anime or video game character, there's nothing better than cosplay.
 
Having said that, we're all horrible disgusting people.

Posted by afrokola

Boobs sound about right, I was gonna suggest the giant swords.

Posted by Zero_

I'm not sure, but I think it might be something to do with the walls behind her.

Posted by TekZero

I'm still clicking on dem bewbs. 

Posted by President_Barackbar

I actually clicked it because I had a friend who went to Fanime and I wanted to see if he was in any of the pictures.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

Then they should check out Anime Vice's Big Boob page.

Posted by Sparklykiss

I always have the footer slimmed down and just visit the landing pages for the other sites. 
 
But the real question, Ethan, is what's a "pomo?" :P

I admit I clicked it because of the Tina cosplay, that and because I wasn't sure if I was actually SEEING someone cosplay as Tina.

I wanted to read the articles.
