i hate that your empurata windblade looks prettier than actual windblade. do you know how hard that is.
I’m not a huge fan of her design, there’s a kernel of something cool there but it’s covered by glitter and standardization. I think the reason it looks better is because it’s not as busy, her whole head and face have way too much details so it looks uninteresting since the only thing separating the face is different color. Designs need contrast and not only color one, and there’s little of that in hers. She needs either a more plain helmet, which I would personally prefer, or removal of face paint.
Okay, it’s acceptable to use body paint when cosplaying a Silurian, Orion girl, Twi’lek, Togruta, etc.
Is it racist or just in very poor taste for white people to cosplay black characters? And why is it acceptable to use body paint when cosplaying aliens of color, as opposed to humans of color? (I know the answer is tied up somewhere in blackface and other ugliness, but shouldn’t we have just one standard for everyone?)
(I love Finn and Martha Jones and would like to cospay them, but I dread the inevitable hate.)
