SooOOooooOOO I was bored in class all day, and some dumbbutt left an expo on my desk. Which is never a good idea. And what was a tribal tattoo turned into Nightvale.
I may do the other arm tomorrow or have my friend do it. But yeah, this was hella fun to do.

These two were great and I was so happy to be given the opportunity to photograph them at our Batfam photoshoot. I’m so happy they have become part of our growing Batfam.
Welp, this is pretty much the most amazing cosplay
After my pictures started making the rounds on deviantArt, tumblr and 4chan, it became pretty clear that my cosplay brings all the racists to the yard, and they’re like…white cosplay is better than yours.'For a black cosplayer (not to be racist) she did an amazing job!' the original Tumblr post read. It was later was edited to include “I love her skin tone” after all hell broke loose.
Personally, I’ve always been stuck on those first few words: ‘for a black cosplayer.’ As if the bar was set lower for us, as if we weren’t expected to perform on the same level as white cosplayers.

People should cosplay any character they want to when they’re coming from a place of love and respect for the character.
No matter the age, race, size, gender, or ability.
It’s up to the individual cosplayer how important it is to be accurate towards the source material. Just as it is totally within said person’s right to use their creativity and imagine the character in a new way (genderbend, pinup style, Lolita style, steampunk, casual, formal, etc.). That kind of ingenuity and passion is what makes cosplay so exciting and fun, both to watch and to participate in.
A more on topic comment: Chaka’s Sailor Venus is one of the best I’ve seen. It’s amazing and adorable and you can see the love she has for the character. Haters can fuck off.Via A Princess in Wolf's Clothing

Since I won’t be able to make the video after my hair’s already gone I thought I’d do a quick tutorial on how to hide long hair in short wigs
- open ended wig cap
- closed wig cap
- bobby pins (NOT SAFETY PINS)
please disregard the mess in the apartment
Via I will live forever or die trying.
