Well, since you insist... :P

As mentioned, it's not only a questionable idea on the moral level, but it has legal implications as well. I fully expect the guy doing this to be sued into oblivion by DC and/or the people in the pictures.

I think the creepiest thing is this thread is 2-days old, and it already has over 11,000 hits

Are there that many people googling fuck pillows?

If anyone can, I think it would be a good idea to get the pictures of all those used and post them on facebook where they can be shared with an effort to reach the people in question or those who know them. Clearly something has to be done to stop him from doing this, but since many of those who's likeness is being used without consent are unaware, and only they have the right to file any kind of suit against him, we should do all we can to make the cosplayers who were used aware of this.

So what's the story? He took pictures of people at the con, had them sign release forms and then used the images to sell keepsake pillows?

It still doesn't sound right.

The vendor was allowed back in by AnimeNext according to this article : http://thegreypoint.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/cosplayer-pillows-the-actual-story/.

Shame on AnimeNext.
