I know you asked this question in attempts to point out how ignorant that post sounded - but I would honestly answer your question (in this specific context) with "yes". The whole point of cosplay is to make a costume that looks as accurate to the character you're trying to portray as possible (unless you're one of these people "sex-ing" a character up). What's so wrong with someone trying to make a 1:1 costume - especially when that's the purpose of it? Clearly she's not doing it for the purposes of mockery, it's straight up - just a costume.
