We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
The “as if he deserves anything less than a 22 inch waist” part. Most of their fan base is younger because they took off with Steven Universe stuff, and it’s awful for them to promote the idea that a certain waist size = better cosplay, or that anyone who isn’t that thin isn’t doing a character justice.
I used to follow elizabethrage a while back and it’s really sad what her account has become. She preaches about “healthy sexuality” and sex positivity but continues to do lewd cosplays of minors from series where plenty of adult characters exist. If she actually knew anything about the fandom, she’d know that Jojo cosplayers are very vocal about not sexualizing Trish. (The character is 15)
I think she might use Facetune to edit her selfie pics. I notice sometimes when I use the facetune patch tool on skin too close to clothing, it makes the skin slightly the color of the clothing. (Idk if that makes sense but idk how to describe it exactly)
on “things that happened while PULL was down”, apparently someone cosplayed cc’s katsu design that they posted earlier this year. Ive been trying to find the cosplayer on Instagram but haven’t had any luck. Anyone know it was?
there’s something really cringe about a grown ass woman using “I’m baby” as a serious excuse for something 🤢
She's wearing her Ranko cosplay (the new one she made) Thurs and Sunday, which lines up with pre-judging and the competition. On her story she says she's excited to wear Godoka again so that's probably just walking around the con on the non competition days Looking at her WIPs it looks like she's making some of the same mistakes that probably contributed to Godoka's flop---idk why she keeps altering designs to include pleats.
She's entering Holmat's cosplay contest this weekend---I'm sure if she doesn't win first she'll have something similar on her story. It's very odd to me that she keeps putting cosplay contests at such high priority. All the people I know that do/enjoy contests are people that are older and don't really do social media? And she's really the opposite of that. It bothers me that she will post instructional videos on how to do certain techniques but then get basic terminology wrong. There's no shame in not being an expert on everything, and she'd be a lot better off if she labeled them as "here's how I did this" instead of "here's how to do this"
There are always so many adult characters in pokemon there is absolutely no excuse to lewd the child characters. Half my twitter feed this past week has been NSFW Raihan and Melony art so she doesn't even have the excuse of "well, everyone else is doing it." I've noticed more and more cosplayers taking inspiration from sakimi designs---whenever she does this to minor characters, it makes me worry that it will inspire more cosplayers to do NSFW sets of them
Just because someone put in a lot of time and work into something doesn't shield it from criticism? The part that irritates me the most about this is that they could have easily avoided this controversy by involving members of the J-fashion community from the beginning, or asking them to be the models instead of the same 3 people they always use. I don't know why people put out these long non-apologies when they could simply say something like "I'm sorry, I'm making changes and I will do better next time." Heycutsew's packaging is cute and I like how it seems like their patterns can be easily modified (same can't always be said for yaya's cosplay patterns), but I've never bought from them because of how close they are with asmileandasong and their crew.
The current debate was sparked from a black cosplayer that tweeted pics of their Nezuko and was bombarded with hate that their skin color made the cosplay inaccurate. Meanwhile white women like Belle Delphine cosplay asian characters all the time and are praised, not hated. The Eurocosplay Pyke thing was different because it was a white cosplayer getting backlash for changing their skin color for a cosplay. The Nezuko thing is that minorities get backlash for cosplaying non-minority characters.
tbh I think her face looks better in these screenshots than the other pics from this set she has shared The rest....yikes this is really rough, especially since that corset part looks like it has boning in it
