here’s my new and improved amethyst. tbh i don’t even cosplay her i just am her lmao
why do white people cosplay characters of color
because the creators of poc characters usually don’t care as much as you do about that
because they know white fans cosplaying characters of color means they can make an identifiable character regardless of culture/race, making the already weak “it won’t sell well/won’t appeal well” argument against poc characters absolutely worthless
because they know white fans liking a character doesn’t actually make it unsafe/take away the character from other characters
because this has nothing to do with racism
or maybe. just maybe. because they like the character and don’t need your approval to like them.
thanks white tumblr user gymleaderkarkat
I’m Hispanic, you racist piece of trash.
Anyone can cosplay anyone, regardless of race. Jeez
Also, this Amethyst is FANTASTIC! <3
I think (especially) in this case the race of the cosplayer is irrelevant.
