After reading this ignorant post, I felt the need to make a response post:
If your cosplay looks
You can indeed be a geek.
You can indeed be cute.
You can indeed be creative.
You are always worthy of respect, no matter what you wear.
Clothing is not an indicator of self worth. A person is a person, no matter what they wear. Cosplay in itself can be an art form, but it can also be just for pleasure; shits and giggles and all that. Fuck anyone who tells you your self worth and “level of geekiness” is low due to this. Fuck that noise.
You are not an attention-whore. You are simply enjoying what makes you happy.
YES. Women are often very marginalized in geek spaces, and that’s bullshit.
Ladies, nerd culture is just as much ours as it is the boys’. Cosplay however you like. We shouldn’t allow other people to police our behavior in our own fandom.
Nerd culture can be really misogynistic, especially when it comes to cosplays (fat-shaming and racism as well). It’s irritating and shows the entitlement a lot of dudes feel for thinking geeky women dress that way for THEM.
I support this message. Dress how you want! You look great!
I’m not going to comment on the geekdom, or lack thereof, of this lady (has anyone noticed that it’s the same person?). I don’t know her and I can’t judge her.
I will, however, comment on the quality of the cosplays. Rule 63 Thor there obviously had a little effort put into it. A yellow bra and a mismatched belt? That’s the equivalent of cutting two holes in a sheet and saying you’re a ghost.
When it comes to cosplay, don’t do it half-assed.
