It feels strange reading "either the photographer or the cosplayer" wouldnt Model suffice?

Also I guess they didnt ask permission about using the trademarked ghostbusters logo either.

MSI's advertisement division strikes again.
Not to mention that cosplay isn't the best thing to involve in marketing, plenty of people don't like it very much. It sure as heck repels me.
