im going to be honest guys. the cosplayingwhileblack tumblr is stupid. it’s perfectly okay what your race, height, size, shape, etc is. but come on. making a tumblr cosplay blog only to showcase cosplayers of a single race? why not just have a cosplaying blog that can appreciate all races?
Why do you question having ‘a’ cosplay blog that appreciate all races, instead of wondering why cosplay blogs in general aren’t more inclusive in the first place?
I see so many complaints like this and I agree. This blog shouldn’t have to exist but it does because despite so much talk about cosplay positiveness and unity I’m still seeing loads of blogs and sites that only seems to want to portray fair-skinned and thin cosplayers, of course their are the few that throw in a plus-size, dark-skinned, or non-able bodied cosplayer every now and then for a shield of diversity.
Like really, with the amount of only White and Asian cosplayers blogs that exist and you only have something to say about the one blog that showcase black cosplayers???
This blog and blogs similar to it were created as a direct result of being excluded and yet ya’ll keep pounding on our doors and asking us to let you in.
No one should have to make a cosplay blog that appreciate all races, cosplay blogs should already be pass this point and until they do get on that level blogs like mines are going to keep on existing.
