My Polnareff cosplay and My friend making A really cool awesome KVLT FACE! OOOOOOOOOOWITZ!
I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
Lisa Lisa from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency, absolutely 100% completed! My first foray into sewing knits, and also my first very comfortable costume I’ve made to date wear-wise.
The red stone was custom created, cast in resin, and decorated with smaller vintage 30’s stones. Jumper is custom drafted, heels are an 80’s vintage find. So happy… can’t wait to POSE everywhere.
