i'd love to hear the jake cosplayer story, i've been seeing references to it all week and my degree in meme archaeology only goes so far

OKAY SO

once upon a time in April 2013 I believe, not horribly long after the Alphas got new outfits upon their entry to the medium, this cosplayer by the name of whatevachild posted a Jake English cosplay, seen here:

It got a lot of notoriety and fame because well, he looked pretty snappy. Naturally he got a lot of followers and quickly started being bombarded with questions about his next cosplay and whatnot. As it turns out, this guy had an ego the size of Jupiter, and decided he was now the God Of Cosplay and got to pass judgement on who cosplayed what. Naturally this lead to some pretty racist and sexist conversations since a bunch of the debates were about having the ‘right skin tone, body type, gender ect for  a certain costume. BUT, eventually people started asking him to cosplay certain things and his most famous rant came out (I can’t find a screencap of it bc this is so old now but I found the text from old meme jokes):

“im sorry, you must not know who i am. im joey. the cosplay elitest. and i dont have time for talk of cosplay that isnt canon. i cosplay hard. i cosplay with passion. and i cosplay correctly. this is a passion. this is a talent. and this is somthing i do not have shit-heads suggest for me to “hey dude do this” casually with no reasoning behind it.” 

I swear to god I’m not even fucking with you

this naturally started a huge meme, some of it can still be found under the 'whatevachild the cosplay elitist’ tumblr tag (warning for flashing lights in a gif found there; to find all the posts, check search, not tagged as). And it went on for about two weeks until he deleted his blog and it faded into obscurity.

But wow was it funny while it lasted.

That’s not canon!” fans scream as I draw trolls with colored skin and floppy ears

nO NO YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG!" they continue, as I add freckles and put them in flashy outfits

You can’t change them like that!!!“ they groan in agony as I drastically change the character’s body sizes and facial features to add some well needed diversity

I laugh, as I read through my old asks where people’d tell me that my art wasn’t "interesting enough” back when I drew them “canon”
