I made a judgement call to not hide the names in this. Because of how truly disgusted this made me.
This is the underbelly of the Cosplay community.
If you live go to conventions on the east coast, specifically in Georgia, you should know who these people are and why to avoid them.
People like this, thinking that because I’m wearing a costume makes me ok with harassment, or that “I’m asking for it” because of the choice of costume are SPECIFICALLY why I will not do a lot of costumes of characters that I love.
This is why I don’t think I’ll EVER fix Power Girl and wear it again. I didn’t like the type of staring that i did get, even if my best convention experience ever was in that costume.
This is why I don’t really walk around conventions alone.
This is partially why I like costumes that are “scary”.
This is why I don’t or do a lot of things. Maybe I’m not consciously thinking about “hey dudes don’t care that I’m a human being, and they think clothes = consent to rude comments!” But it’s a behavior I’ve learned to protect myself, and perform it automatically.
It shouldn’t have to be this way, but until the majority of these knuckleheads get it through their thick skulls that girls aren’t whores just because they wear certain costumes, I will continue to assume that many males are creeps, thank you.
That moment when you know a few of these people.
Ugh gross, so if I wear lolita, men should treat me like a princess
but they fucking don’t, they’re still gross and rude. I even got mugged in lolita, I guess I was “asking for it”
Many guys and gals in the cosplay community are saying “If you dress like a whore you get treated like one”….Oh…so you would grab, sexually harrass, or make lewd comments to Power Girl or She Hulk, no….because they’d rip your arms off and beat your face in with them. So, the next time you decide to do this to a cosplayer, imagine them, ripping your arms off and smacking you in the face with them to help restrain your clearly disgusting animal like tendencies.

When the girls dress like the boys x white tie and tails VIII. Marlene Dietrich understood men’s clothes better than most men. And style wise she was far ahead of her time. In a time in which women were more or less stuck to skirts and dresses, she started raiding the male wardrobe to add to her collection of dresses and gowns. She had her men’s tailors, shirtmakers and cobblers (she frequented quite a few) make her suits, blazers, sports coats, shirts and custom made trousers. But only Knize in Vienna and Eddie Schmidt in Hollywood made her many tails. Fun trivia: Dietrich’s starched shirt cuffs were directly attached with a hidden buttoned fastening in the sleeve of her dress suits. So she wore sleeveless shirts with her tailcoat, that allowed for quick costume changes and slimmer, more feminely cut jacket sleeves. And while costume jewelry was always worn with stage costumes, for Marlene’s favorite white tie and tails, the cuff links were always her own- from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Trabert & Hoeffer.
Are we really so different that we must be horrified of one of them uncovered, and completely okay with the other?
I fucking love this
i am so horrified with the man uncovered, like have some self respect please
Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.

I have no control over what comes out of my mouth. I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said.
