Cosplay whoever you want no matter your skin colour, height, or body type. Seriously It makes me so mad that some people are actually bothered by dark skinned cosplayers cosplaying light skin characters. But if you’re a light skin Cosplayer and you want to cosplay a dark skin character I have no issues with that, just don’t black face because that’s very offensive.
AND DONT COME ALL UP HERE SAYING IF THEY HAD GREEN SKIN YOUD WOULD PAINT IT GREEN. WHY IS BLACK DIFFERENT?
Well my sweet summer child. It’s because of the horrific connotations and systemic racism attached to light skinned people doing that.
Cosplay all you fucking want. But no black face. “Red face” or “yellow face” like. It’s 2014. You can’t pretend you didn’t realise what that means.
