Some house rules for talking about cosplay:
- It’s not a compliment to put someone else’s cosplay down in order to make a person feel better about theirs. Telling Person A that Person B’s cosplay isn’t as good as theirs is puts both of them in a competition that they probably…
Also, can I just add, can people NOT fucking use people’s skintone, or their body size/shape, or gender to shame them into not cosplaying a character they like? I’ll repeat what was said here. You don’t know their reasons for cosplaying. And if a person really loves that character, you have absolutely zero rights to tell that person what they can and can’t dress as. But being black and cosplaying Ash Ketchum because you goddamn want to catch ‘em all is just as cool as being a young white girl who looks up to Korra and wants to be a tough, kick ass avatar. I’ve also seen a very fabulous drag “Queen Beryl” And “He-fa” from FF7.
Okay? Don’t be a douche. Come on.
