Cosplay Photoshopping Makes Me Sad

We feature a lot of cosplay on this site, and I believe even this exact picture once or twice, so it sort of makes me sad to discover it’s a fake.

Well, in a sense. The boobs remain the same before the retouching (shocking) but everything from arm pudge to laugh lines have been altered for the final version of the picture we’ve all seen.

I understand certain filters to make pictures lighter or more crisp or what not, but this was a very pretty girl before all the alterations. Did we really need to shave inches off her arm to appreciate this awesome Rikku costume more? I don’t think so.
