Progress pic of my Moana cosplay! A few things left to do but I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. Finding the right fabrics and doing everything from scratch and by hand was exhausting! I’ll definitely look to do a post about how I made the costume. ♥
Hey everyone, we worked really hard this weekend on filming some amazing cosplays and the end result is pretty dang awesome. A lot of love was put into this from both our end and the fantastic cosplayers, so please give it a watch if you can! It’d mean a lot :)
Marvel was showing off clips and pieces of Ryan Coogler’s Blank Panther to
the press Monday. The film takes place in a futuristic Utopian African
nation of Wakanda (it looks stunning), and it wouldn’t come as a
surprise if we see more footage down in San Diego. Black Panther finishes
shooting tomorrow and goes into the editing bay. Nothing official from
Marvel as they decide at the last minute what pic clips they’ll take to
Comic-Con. Black Panther comes out February 16.
In addition, there’s Thor: Ragnarok, which
is being released November 3. A smart bet that clips from the Taika
Waititi-directed movie will be revealed at Comic-Con. Feige mentioned
yesterday the threequel is in the midst of being edited.
Marvel is currently prepping on Ant-Man And The Wasp, due
out next summer on July 6. Again at 2014 Comic-Con, they showed off a
polished action sequence with plenty of CGI of Paul Rudd flying around. A
coin toss whether we’ll see something similar in July. It’s likely we
won’t see anything from Captain Marvel (maybe lead star Brie
Larson), as Feige mentioned that film is slotted to go before cameras in
February. Its release date is March 8, 2019.
Whenever there is a year with a Disney D23 fan convention, there’s
concern that their Marvel label will skip the summer comic-book confab.
Such was the case in 2011 and 2015; for that latter year, Disney opted
to trot out Star Wars: The Force Awakens in San Diego. No word if Star Wars: The Last Jedi will have any presence at this year’s Comic-Con.
The Trouble with Pocahontas/Connor Kenway Cosplays
Halloween isn’t the only time that I see people dressing up as Native Americans. No, I’m not talking about various sports team events, or Coachella. I’m talking about Conventions.
It irks me and I silently judge when I see a Pocahontas or Sexy Fem. Connors (Assassin’s Creed 3) . Yes, you look beautiful, Yes you may have put tons of hours into your beautiful cosplay, that is amazing and I commend you for it, but that’s the thing. To you, it’s a cosplay, a costume, one you wear for a couple hours until YOU decide to take it off. To me, that’s my culture, and I just CAN’T take my “costume” off.
Do you really understand how problematic Disney’s Pocahontas is? Yes, they did get Native actress, Irene Bedard , to voice her, they did some research, they did visit the Pamunkey Reservation. Yes! The animation was beautiful and it did break some boundaries for it’s time, but despite all this….she still remains a stereotype (POCAHONTAS WASN’T EVEN HER REAL NAME! It was
Matoaka ). Look at her clothes, take away the name “Pocahontas” and tell me, what do you see? I see, just another generic Native costume that we see year after year in Halloween stores.
Now Fem.Connors, I don’t really have a problem with, the ones I DO is the ones who feel they need to…sex it up. I’m all for sexy cosplay, do you boo, but just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. In this case, sexy Connors irks me, because it just reinforces the sexualization of Native Women. Which statistics have shown, that Native Women are at the highest rate of any ethnicity to be sexually assaulted, raped, or murdered. You can still be a gorgeous, bomb ass Fem.Connor, without showing the boobs (which I’m sure are lovely) and a bare midriff (Lovely as well),and without reinforcing a harmful stereotype. (Seriously, you can! I’ve seen some amazing Fem.Connors!!)
Yes, you look beautiful, you look gorgeous, hot, sexy whatever it maybe, at the end of the day, you’re still portraying a character that is Native American, and by applying rule 63 to Connor, and making it sexy, using obvious Native motifs, your “costume” is no different than the Pocahottie costume on the rack in the Spirit Halloween store, except for the fact it’s made better.
p.s. to the Connor cosplayer I saw a few years ago at Otakon, who wore a stereotypical Headdress with it. Fuck you.
