Hey guys, just did some real talk on my stories about something that’s going on in the cosplay community and expressing my feelings around that...(this will be saved to my highlights as well)
There are people in our community that need our support and love right now ❤️ and there are people that just need to get the F outta here with their creepy and completely inappropriate behavior ✌️ I’m so sorry to those who have suffered from this....you’re not alone, we are here for you. Don’t let this bring you down! ❤️ Abuse & harassment is not OK in ANY form to ANYONE. Let’s wake up people... enough is enough. Unfortunately, we have to look out for ourselves & each other to stay safe.
The problem is two fold...there are “expectations” of female cosplayers and the pressure of being popular on social media that are influencing this community...so to keep up with this, cosplayers are putting themselves in unsafe situations to get photos and people are taking advantage of that.
The true meaning of cosplay is being lost here....to me, cosplay is about embodying your favorite characters to empower yourself & inspire others. It’s not about likes or getting attention in the wrong ways. I’ll always stay true to that ❤️
