Looking for some advice and maybe validation? Is it okay for black people to cosplay? Any other black cosplayers out there?

Just fucking dress up in whatever way you want, retard.

OP this is a super toxic board, I suggest going elsewhere.

There are totally great black cosplayers out there!

Here is one lady, she is a cosplayer and also pretty funny.

to say exactly what others are saying, do what you want with your money. I've never had a bad experience cosplaying, most non-black people don't give two shits irl.

Depends on what your definition of tame is, I consider boards like /trv/ and /po/ tame. we cut deep here lol

>>10217328
On point; step one to ruining your life is to seek validation from others instead of feeling motivated by your own personal drive. Go Do Whatever The Hell You Want and for god's sake don't frame a request for permission to do something around race. Slave ghosts will scold you in your dreams; you're a free and equal human under the law, aint no non-black person's right to tell you what to do or not to do.

no. just-- no. So many other Miku outfits she could have done if she was dead set on the character that would have looked okay, and fug, THAT WIG. I want better for her, and everyone that has to see her.

Yeah, it's okay. If someone has an issue with you dressing as a 'white' or 'Asian' character, they're a racist P.O.S. whose opinion doesn't matter. People throw a fit when people 'blackface' to fit a darker character largely because it's stupid as fuck. It's like changing your eye shape to 'look more Asian'. If you're pale, and want to cosplay as Viera, just focus on the costume, makeup, and wig. No one is going to be like, "Gosh, I just don't know who that character could be because your skin is pale as fuck." Equally so, if you're black, and want to cosplay Mina Tepes, focus on the costume, makeup, and wig. No one is going to be all, "Fuck. I can't figure out who you are because your dark skin is just completely confounding my ability to identify this character."

Of course its ok, theres even a convention that panders to black cosplayers called Blerdcon, which was pretty great this year imo.
>>
i mean yeah duh obviously but from your post its already glaringly obvious you're just in it for attention and probably just started getting into this shit within the last few years either as a money grab or popularity grab

As a white person, I have no desire to cosplay any character without light skin. I don't think I would look right and I'd be embarrassed to do it. I also don't go around telling people what to do, but I will tell you that I'm not the only person who thinks the way I do. And there's nothing wrong with that so long as they're not trying to control your life. However, if you're doing cosplay for attention, or money, you'll get less of it if you cosplay light skinned characters as opposed to a light skinned person in the same cosplay. That's just reality. It's harsh, and I'd never say this in person, but I think light skinned people look better cosplaying light skinned characters. I also think dark skinned people look better cosplaying dark skinned characters. Doesn't mean anyone should be barred from cosplaying any character. It's fun, after all. And it doesn't mean dark skinned people can't look good, or even great cosplaying light skinned characters. But the thing that is so wonderful about cosplay, but at the same time so restrictive, is cosplay isn't just a garment hanging lifeless on a manikin. A person's body is as much a part of the cosplay as the care that went into making it. A living breathing human being is responsible for bringing a costume to life, and in many cases, attributes you have no control over affect how you will be perceived. So just do your best and have fun. Cosplay for yourself, and if others like it, let that be a bonus.

That is objectively a lie I constantly see people and pages on my Facebook feed specifically sharing POC cosplayers that are cosplaying a traditionally light-skinned character specifically because they are a POC even if the cosplay itself is a cheap store-bought outfit they didn't touch or modify.

However when it comes to my FB feed it's filled with self-hating white girls that have so much white-guilt that they feel obligated to be super-woke so perhaps in a more mainstream sense you are right.

As a black person, I don't know how to respond to this.

Someone help me!

Uhh why not?? Its cosplay, you be who you want, skin color doesn't matter!!

sure
there's plenty of dark skinned characters, and you can cosplay as light skinned characters too (unless your skin is absolute pitch black like sudanese people, in which case your cosplay will look really weird)

just don't be fat lol

Yes it is ok, work out (no need to if you are the gal in your pic)
Some people change a bit their characters because they dont want to change their hair

its a great way to get a white bf

who dis
>>
>>10217319
Yes it's fine, you're best off doing characters that already have your skin tone though. I would say paint and use makeup to suit any character you want, but people are a bunch of racists and won't let people change their skin color anymore without throwing a fit.
>>
>>10217319
You're free, white, and 21, you can do as you please

Maybe stay away from guns/weapons-related costumes and you should be good. Not being critical of blacks, just that cops git skert quick and bring REAL guns to the game.
>>
Nah, black cosplayers can cosplay whomever they want... We don't have to stick to the select few characters that are barely there, to apease, and make anyone feel better. Don't like us cosplaying your pasty waifus, and husbandos don't look.
>>
Pretty sure no one in their right mind cosplays so they can get a white boyfriend. Jesus Christ in hell.

Real cosplayers and people that like what they do don't care about the skin tone. If you can pull the cosplay off you'll be fine.
It's a matter of personal taste whether others like it or not, but only a bigot would raise a stink about it.
>>
>>10238342
I dont recommend it desu unless you're going to be really into grooming your pet or take your pet to the groomers once or twice a month. Also don't wear black clothes unless you want fur on them.

Do you recommend I get a white seagull, instead?

Korean and Japanese are the same asian race, and they're not hot unless you like plastic surgery.

I kissed and fucked my pillow last night, because of pic related.
I got a good night's rest.
Thank you, anon.

I wish I could find the original pic, though.
All I have is this small one,
which I cut and pasted from yours.

It's not. If I remember right, the female model in that got upset and wanted to sue the company because no one told her they were going to photoshop the kids' faces.
>>
>>10238856
It's not, and it actually ruined the career of the model posing as the mom because everyone associated her with that ad and thought she'd had plastic surgery. It's pretty fucked up.

>>10238841
I don't drink for medical reasons and I'm lactose intolerant so unfortunately no

Would you walk with her, to her hotel room,
after she's had too many white Koreans?

(So she doesn't pass out in the hallway)
