I finished my God Tier Roxy cosplay, and I’m so happy! Me and my alpha nerds group got to have this really cool photoshoot at the con last weekend and the pics ended up great! All thanks to our fantastic photographer! Go follow her for some more of her talent!
I was gonna make a big post with some cool pics later on, but I just got so excited to show you guys, so I’m posting this little gem now!
Swapped cosplays with my moirail during a visit so have an impromptu Jake! Officially have cosplayed all the Alpha kids now, and Jake is one I’m working on for myself!

In other news, I’m desperate for more Homestucks near me, or in Arkansas in general bc I stg there are none that I know of, or they’re hella far away on the opposite side of the state. Tagging Arkansastuck pls talk to me if you live in this shitty state
You guyys, i want to thank everyone for the support and love you gave me from my last rant post pertaining to my roxy cosplay. Before, when I used a black wig for Roxy, I was told I wasn’t being canon enough. I didn’t change wigs for that. The black one is in storage with most of the rest of my cosplays. And I can’t very well change my skin color, which is apparently the issue people have with me now.
Problem is, even with the white wig, I have been getting hate, and have been told things no person, black or white, should ever hear. I have been called outdated racial slurs, and told on several occasions to end my own life. I have even gotten a single incredibly racist stalker set on being known as nothing other than “Master”. I’ve tried blocking them many times only for them to show back up.
It isn’t the wig, I realized, so much as general hatefulness of people who wouldn’t be able to tell shaving foam from Styrofoam and vice versa. So just like last time, I’m gonna keep cosplaying my voidy babe how I want to. I’m black, I was born black, and I’ll be black til I die and no one is going to tell me I’m ugly because of it. No one is going to make fun of my nose because of its shape, something I can’t control. No one is going to tell me they’re better than me.
