It took me 5years to pluck up the courage to attempt my first caucasian characters. eg Chris Redfield, Thor, Guile. I was afraid of all this shit. This woman's had it much, MUCH worse and she's still going strong. Most people would've snapped or given up long ago. True idol material, everyone.
"Women in cosplay are treated as pieces of meat, on display to satisfy a man's fantasy of that character."
So many cosplayers have quit, or become paranoid, or have even become "man-haters" because of this.
Cosplayers wearing revealing costumes are not "asking for it".
"FUCK. THAT. That's like telling women not to wear short skirts if she doesn't want to be raped. These characters are drawn in very little clothing due to art direction and wanting to make sales -- and I love them and want to portray them despite what they are drawn wearing. I don't want to be burqa Wonder Woman -- I want to be Wonder Woman in all her sexy hot pants glory."
