ikilledtherpc’s alternate fc suggestions

Don’t like playing racists and abusers* but are somehow hard set in belief that Cold Sprouts (24) is the only waify brooding male faceclaim out there and feel like you have no choice but to play him because he’s ~just so perfect~ for your gary stu loner oc? Congrats, you’re incorrect and all of the above are better choices than him. Names below link to their gif hunt tags.

— AMADEUS SERAFINI (25) Kieran from Scream is a little more rugged with that I’m a 20-Something Playing A High Schooler Stubble, but he’s still a great alternative. His gifpacknetwork tag can be found here.

— DAVID LAMBERT (23) best known for playing Brandon on The Fosters. He has plenty of resources and his gifpacknetwork tag can be found here.

— RYAN POTTER (21) the ultimate Robin and the voice of Hiro Hamada from Big Hero 6, Ryan has a killer instagram that’ll satisfy all your artsy needs.

ELIAS BENDER RØNNENFELT (25) lead singer of a Danish band called Iceage. He’s on thin ice (ba-dum-tsss) because I can almost see the racist in his eyes and I don’t trust him. Nevertheless he looks like a great alt. 

FRANCISCO LACHOWSKI (26) not as popular as he used to be but still a viable option for an alt! His gifpacknetwork tag can be found here.

*this isn’t an invitation for you to try and defend your white fave. act a fool on this post and you’ll catch a swift block, thanks.

WOC MODELS TO USE BESIDES GIGI AND BELLA: a (partial) masterlist

I dislike the Hadids for a variety of reasons (Google “Hadid problematic” and you’ll see), and even if you ignore the problematic-ness, they’re just seriously overused. There are so many other models of color who get little to no love from the RPC. This is by no means a complete list – just some of my personal favorites.

after running a poc rp, i’ve realized how many underused faceclaims there are out there. under the cut you’ll find a list of 150+ underused poc faceclaims with resources in the tags. ALL of the faceclaims have at least one roleplayable gif hunt in the tags. this list was put together in hopes of bringing more diversity and different faces to the rpc rather than some of the more overused ones. because i focused on more underused ones, you won’t find the popular poc faceclaims in the rpc on the list, i.e. avan jogia, tyler posey, emeraude toubia, shay mitchell, etc. this was made just to make a point tbh and show how there’s no excuse for not including lots of pocs in your roleplay, but if this was helpful, give it a like or a reblog!

INTRODUCING: the fool’s fc directory!

this is a personal fc directory and more for my moments of “okay so which fc do i use, i remember loving one but who were they again…?” but i thought this would be useful to people for some quick fc ideas ( this is by no means a definitive list, and my sorting of ethnicities may not be perfect – if there’s anything i should amend/change, please let me know!! )

there’s a good mix of fc’s in their teens-twenties-thirties, lots of poc, some underused whites. not all of my favourites are up there yet, but the directory is always growing!

just so we’re clear, the following white-passing fcs are not actually white. some of them have a white parent or grandparent. some just have light skin. but they’re at least partially poc, and are not white.

  • selena gomez (can’t believe i have to say this, considering she’s never made a secret of it, but i’ve actually seen people claim she was white or not latina “enough”, whatever that means)
  • demi lovato
  • halsey
  • oscar isaac (who wouldn’t even look very light skinned if psds wouldn’t keep whitewashing him)
  • troian bellisario
  • victoria justice
  • katie findlay
  • lana parilla
  • tyler posey
  • tyler blackburn
  • ally brooke
  • hailee steinfeld
  • shay mitchell
  • sky ferreria
  • lauren jauregui
  • bella and gigi hadid
  • karla souza
  • taylor lautner
  • bob morley
  • bianca santos
  • darren criss
  • camila belle

tl;dr: light skin doesn’t equal white.

Just a reminder:

Tommy Oliver is said to be NATIVE AMERICAN in the original series. Do NOT use a white faceclaim for him!!!!!!! There are several actors out there of Native American descent, including B/oo/bo/o Ste/wart (a popular Tommy fancast) and Tyler Blackburn (who I use for my reboot Tommy). Plus, there are several helpers with lists that tell you an actor’s ethnicity and some even link to resources!

DO NOT WHITEWASH TOMMY OLIVER!!!!!
