So I’m pissed and my computer is broken so I can’t vlog about this so I am going to try and use my words.

There was a SDCC “Who wore it better” ‘article’ in which they put pictures of two people cosplaying the same character side by side. LIKE A FUCK ING VOTE.

This is gross, exploitative and wrong.

They didn’t ask for this. It not a competition.

Oh, but wait Mae. Aren’t you getting a little ahead of yourself? Aren’t there contests? Isn’t it in fact all about competition? Didn’t they ask for it?

No. Everyone gets to be treated like a human being. Even if you enter a contest, thereby granting your consent you still don’t deserve to be singled out a pittied against other players. You can have a healthy competitive streak to push yourself without throwing others under the bus.

And finally, it’s not about being better. Let your freak flag fly and be your own hero. Ignore the asshats and spread love and awareness in the community. Fuck these guys.

One of the things I’m loving about making this costume is the clean lines and elegant design. 
Really sad they lost the ponytail, though. I really loath long flow -y haired superheros. I mean, I had long hair and that shit was ALWAYS tied up. Especially for anything athletic.

That time I met Luciano Costa and I temporarily forgot how to breath.

Picture is worth 1000 words.
