Even if Sneaky is a guy, in the end it's women's self-esteem that's harmed due to unrealistic (photoshop) portrayals of beauty. I feel like this is unhealthy for trans women who are transitioning and cis women. Sneaky is just contributing to the issue. I don't have too many opinions on him doing this as a whole, but I don't like his use of so much Photoshop (probably Ester's advice).

It's a societal issue that sexual images sell, and that's not something individuals can change. That being said, Sneaky has no reason to conform to these female standards of unattainable beauty as a guy. Men have other standards of beauty they chase, but Sneaky is contributing to unhealthy female standard's of beauty simply because Photo-shopping is the "norm". IDK. I don't think he's looking at the un-edited pictures and saying, "I feel worthless because I'm not a beautiful women and society judges my worth based on my beauty". I feel like women Photoshop because they think beauty says something about their worth and ability to sell. Yes, Sneaky is selling a product that revolves around beauty, but he's also on the LCS. I don't feel like he's Photo-shopping because he's concerned about the worth of his appearance the same was as a woman does. Also, when a woman is called unattractive it's something they can't escape. If people don't think Sneaky is cute as a girl, is that something that truly affects his life? I just feel like his Photo-shopping is extremely superficial and damaging, and is just done to be done/sell. And yes, these are things that female photo-shoppers do as well, but I do think there's a difference.

THEN AGAIN, if Sneaky doesn't consider himself a cis-male then I do feel bad that he feels the need to Photoshop this much.

You think too much into it. It's crossdressing... Nothing deep let him enjoy without making him feel bad because of others.

It's not the cross-dressing that bothers me. I'm totally OK with that and think he should be able to have fun with that. His cosplays are actually pretty good IMO. What bothers me is the photoshop which seems really extreme, but that's probably because Ester is the one doing it and it more so reflects her views on beauty. For example the Boosette picture looks really creepy to me. Maybe it's a mix of the makeup and photoshop, but almost looks like he's not a real person?

iirc, sneaky was caught watching gay porn, he's always enjoyed Futa type stuff, so he's more than likely not being manipulated.

Let's just leave these assumptions about his fetishes away, but the fact that in his entire career he crossdressed like 2 or 3 times and since he's with Esther he posts new cosplay like every 2 weeks, he started patreon and these pictures are getting more and more sexual, there is definitely a lot of her influence in how his career is going these days. Maybe he was too shy to be public about his "interests" and Esther gave him the courage, he indeed looks really happy with her but personally I think your fetishes or in-bed preferences should stay private. Nothing wrong with being yourself, but Esther does cosplay for a living and benefits a lot from doing it together with Sneaky, but he's still a pro player and this entire cosplay thing is getting a little bit inappropriate. If Sneaky wasn't in the industry for so long and had so much achievements in the past no one would take him seriously these days, it's fun to do some crossdressing as a side hobby and for some content like Boxbox does but with how these cosplays has taken over Sneaky's entire social media and how they are getting more and more sexual and fetishistic, I think it's time to put it away for a minute.

My biggest concern about Sneaky's enjoyment and the popularity among fans is being exploited. I might be reaching, but Esther ultimately benefits the most off of his happiness. Most of the time, I can't scroll down his twitter without her being tagged. Because Sneaky is very famous in the esports industry and has many, many fans, much of that attention is diverted to her through these cosplays. 

Because, let's face it, sex sells, especially when it comes to the nerdy gamer scene that highly values lewds and sexuality, and with more sexual content, the more fans focus on that aspect, are willing to donate (even though he makes plenty of money off his contract), and boost his popularity by circulating his content. And guess who also posts similar content that fans will thirst after? Esther. I'm sure Sneaky enjoys cosplaying, but it's definitely being marketed by his gf not just for his enjoyment, but for her popularity and own fanbase. 

On another note, like saina stated, the occasional cosplay is fun, but Sneaky's now borderline pandering, highly sexualized cosplays are straight up unprofessional. He's a professional gamer, and like how every streamer has an online personality, Sneaky should also separate his personal life from his publicized one. He can enjoy whatever he wants on his own time, but he shouldn't post sexual, fetishized content on an account that states he is a pro gamer for C9. He could continue for all he wants, but imo, this is not the image I'd want my team to have if I owned a renowned gaming team.

Speaking of being a professional gamer, this is Sneaky's bio on the All-Star website (created by League of Legends) … his cosplay is embedded in his legacy now I suppose. Though All-Stars is a fun and entertaining event so it may be on purpose to point his cosplay out

I'm not defending Esther, bc she does seem a bit stuck up and fake? (per other posts on this thread). But I don't think it's right to blame her entirely for Sneaky's recent cosplay content. I feel like Sneaky has always been into those kinds of things as well as enjoying getting reactions from people. I mean I used to drop by his streams every once and awhile and he was never an innocent / PG13, super uptight LCS player, you guys feel? Like honestly he's troll as fuck and also was never shy to admit or joke about his fetishes and whatnot.

I'm sure Esther does play some part into his more risque cosplay as of late, but for him to pump out so much within a time period I feel like Sneaky in a way is also benefiting from Esther and her cosplay knowledge. Like she's mentioned before (but I'm not sure as to how much truth there is to it however) she's been the one working on Sneaky's cosplay, such as creating the costumes, prepping wig and makeup, as well as doing the shoots for him. I have to admit she seems to be putting alot more work into it than Sneaky who just seems to have to just dress up and pose for his gf? Yeah he's a well known LCS player and has made a name for himself in the esport scene, but to entirely say that this whole cosplay fiasco is due to Esther and her "influence" for some clout (or some insinuating that she's forcing him to do this) seems a bit unfair in my opinion.

Also in regards to his sexuality (this is just my personal opionion, pls don't crucify me ;-;) but I don't think it validates to question or assume his sexuality bc he's into this types of things? I mean I know of some male friends who are into the whole sub/dom things and prefer to be subs to their gf's. I know it's weird to discuss, but if I'm understanding correctly it's just like other sexual fantasy's out there where they get some type of satisfaction being dominated as well as other's getting a kick out of dressing more girly? Although I do agree that maybe Sneaky should keep it more lowkey since it leads to discussions and rumors as well skewing his "pro-gamer" profile.

You'd think someone who's doing a Grad school program (what's her concentration anyways?) would not be... pandering to thirsty nerds on Patreon with her boyfriend's fanbase to milk all the money out of. 

 

this! What is with people being so gullible when an e-thot says they are “studying”. They are obviously saying that just to make it seem they are working for a future and not just making money off of lewd content.

Yeah, I saw this mentioned briefly on Poki’s thread.  I don’t want to be negative about it since they’re young, and it happens.  You get bored in a relationship or outgrow it and that’s normal.  However, I feel like the situation is a little weird.  I mean, how are you stunting each other’s growth?  I wish I could put it into better words how I feel about the situation, but it feels like this has been a long time coming especially with how annoyed Valk has seemed with him lately🤷🏻‍♀️

has she claimed to make his cosplays? because all of the lingeries i’ve seen on sneaky/her can be easily bought on taobao for $3-$15 USD and cosplays are easily custom made on taobao for $20-$60 usd now. the characters he/she cosplays are very mainstream in the chinese cosplay community too so the cosplays tend to go cheaper. wigs are pretty cheap too; you can get a decent one for only $5. and imo, her makeup skills are ok. she always looks the same and so does sneaky lol. i’m sure esther does all the shopping but that benefits her more than sneaky since they’re clothes for women.

tbh i don’t think much effort is actually going into their lewds; so they’re profitting a LOT. any issues with photography can be easily fixed with photoshop too.

I don't think she necessarily claimed to make his cosplay, but just mentioned a few times that she was helping him more with it than what was being shown. I'm sure most if not all of the cosplay they've shown are bought, but I think when it comes down to effort, Esther is the one doing his makeup, editing his photos, gathering supplies (I'm not about paying tho lol) etc and that's probably what she meant as "working". I understand that it may not take alot of effort for lewds but it still takes some effort to try and be accurate when cosplaying characters.
