I want to reach through the screen and beat this dude with a baseball bat.  Speaking as a person who is, in fact, very very poor… I am not a radical, but there are days when getting people like this, tying them all round a big pile of kindling, and setting them on fire seems like a very good idea.

officialkurtwagner said: Heroes Of Cosplay: New Orleans"The winners’ reactions were filmed BEFORE making their appearance on stage." How do you explain this?? You'll probably ignore me. The entire show disgusts me, you guys may not have known from the beginning but you have to know by now. If you stay in this show, you're just as much a liar and a cheat as everyone else involved. I can't BELIEVE I used to look up to you guys. I hope I'm never at the same con as any of you so called "heroes"



Actually, we were filmed after we won. Jessica actually started crying because she was so excited. If you don’t believe that, you are a bully. You don’t have to look up to us, but it would be nice if you understood that myself and my friends would never be part of a rigged contest, and would never ever want people to suffer because of us. That’s the truth, but if you feel like continuing to hate-monger and believe nonsense, then be my guest, but I’ll be here continuing to try to bring positivity to the community. 

Also we donate all of the money we win in these contests to charity. But no one wants to reblog that information. 

The winnings for our Best in Show in NOLA ($700) are being 100% donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity - JM Barrie willed the rights to Peter Pan to them so we thought it was perfect :) So for those who have said we should give the money back, sorry?

There’s a thing called the cycle of abuse. People who have been victimized sometimes do it to others as a coping mechanism. For those of you who see this stuff and worry that this negativity should keep you from dressing up and pretending to step in someone else’s shoes, just remember that in some cases you’re dealing with people who are lashing out because that’s all they know.

It’s ok to not prescribe to a giant community. It certainly feels foreign to me. Find your safe niche with non-judgmental people (e.g. Crabcateers are pretty cool lol) and have fun.

To OP, sorry you feel the way you do.

I'm done.


I wrote something with rationalizations, justifications, and defenses against misinformation but deleted it, because I realized it doesn’t really matter. What does is how I feel: my perspective has changed after this week on the world of cosplay. I will keep doing “make believe” costumes and…

"A FEMALE Assassin? How does she kill? With a BOOB!?"
- someone at Ubisoft, probably (via aegislash)

Who wants to join the Inquisition? :D This is the sexy Facebook Giveaway that Allen Amis Creations is doing for a ready-to-wear Dragon Age: Inquisition helmet.

Check it out! :) 




A reminder that “male” armour usually works just as well with female bodies. If you’re trying to design something practical, useful and historical looking (or even just something the follows the laws of physics), never ever put in boob cups. Aside from the fact they give the armour a sort of “focus point” for swords, falling down on them would send the shock right into the sternum. Regular plate armour leaves enough space between the chest for small to medium sized boobs anyway. But say the girl underneath is a buxom lass, you can still avoid that cleavage, boob cup shape while leaving enough space for her melons.

But aside from plate, things like the top picture, chainmail and all sorts of leather armour are unisex. I know you might be thinking that the feminine thing to do when designing a female warrior is to show off a bit of thigh or neck or cleavage or something, but really, understand that if the goal of that armour is to protect completely, putting an obvious gap in it is a terrible idea and she’ll surely get stabbed very quickly.

And don’t feed me the “it’s magic, I don’t got to explain shit” line. Bollox. Magic armour and forcefields need to make some sense too. Show me something that LOOKS like it’s generating a barrier over the character instead of just saying “Oh the G-string of Invulnerability is just as good as wearing full plate anyway”. If that’s the case, everyone would wear it. And why can’t they just tie it around their belt? Make me believe that your magic armour and spells have logic to them. If not, please don’t play your world straight. I’m all for super stylised designs as long as they’re sold as such, but if you’re trying to make a world that feels real enough for people to believe and get immersed in, think this stuff out. If you’ve designed someone with sparse, gapped armour that shows skin, give your character a reason to wear it.

Just going to add that armor with major gaps in the defense (like arms, legs, and neck) did exist historically, and it was either a matter of economics or technological advancement, and, in some cases, personal preference.

The above is a good general place to start from, though I will go into possibilities for appropriate and sensible sexing of armors in a future post.

i have a lot of feelings about female armor
