It must be soul-crushing for a cosplayer to spend massive amounts of time and energy to create the perfect costume, only for no one to recognize who they are. As one Harvey Birdman cosplay discovers in this animated parody by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, it's enough to trigger an existential crisis.
"I don't belong in this shithole," he tells himself. "Everyone here is, like, 12 years old. I stayed up sewing all night, and it's so hot in this suit. These wings are so fucking heavy."
Needless to say, it's not exactly work-safe, but it is a pretty good sendup of Birdman.
