"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial.

This was the second cosplay I ever made on my own,
And whilst it was not so great, I’m still pretty proud of it.

So I think I’ve got everything done in terms of cosplay for my trip. It Looks like I’ll be taking Seras Victoria, Haruka Shitow, and of course the new Eva costume. I have NO idea what order we’re wearing them in, my cosplay-partner for the weekend doesn’t like to plan ahead the way I do so I’m playing it by ear.

Just waiting on goggles and Gloves to arrive. >.>//

I should have one more photo shoot coming back from the photographer in a few days, so stay tuned for that. Might post more Mokoto later this week, since everyone seems to like that one (always funny when the costume you did the least work on is so popular, lol)

WE worked on the Queen of Space Haman shoulder today, they’re going to be pretty tricky to make out of brass, but I know Darien Spider has got the skills for it. As soon as I get back from my trip east it’s full steam ahead on Ni No Kuni AND Zeon Uniforms. I’m so excited for San Japan I could scream! <3

Oh yeah PAX south, we’re getting that too. Who’s excited?

Sorry for the lack of sewing guys, life’s been busy, more to come soon though! Can’t wait for Zenkai <3

I always forget to eat when I’m sewing. I hate that I do this to myself so often.
