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.
just gorram drop it. Seriously. Don’t keep insisting it should happen, don’t ask me what kind of dudes I like, don’t ask me for an explanation. I don’t owe you one.
And don’t you dare suggest the scenario that a guy you set me up with could turn out to be Prince Charming. Because you know what? That is like, the worst. fucking. thing. you could say to an abuse survivor. You know why? Because I already thought I had Prince Charming. Obviously it didn’t work out.
3 days to open with bobby flay is really stupid
he doesn’t teach them to run a food truck
he just lets them fail in front of everyone like assholes
i want to punch him
I love when people hate on douchebag Bobby Flay. It fills me with warm fuzzies. <3
You hate him, too?!
I don’t believe I’ve told you that I love you lately.
1. Versailles was covered in gold. Why was silver chosen?
2. Absinthe didn’t make it to France until almost 10 years after the French Revolution. (Hint: Marie Antoinette was already dead.)
3. Macaroons and macarons are not the same thing.
4. I find it interesting that Xenia went with a lavender when, in the numerous paintings that exist of Marie Antoinette, there are hardly any purples. She is, however, wearing pale blues in a majority of them.
Surprise, Xenia failed to do any research. Again.
