People are just being ignorant. People who don't understand cultural appropriation are the loudest and the ones who are the first to call it out when it's not even there. I feel like your cosplay is more representative and creative than cultural appropriation. Now if you denied Nani's race/ ethnicity or were disrespectful towards her character or her culture that'd be another story, but clearly you didn't do that. You're Nani cosplay is wonderful!
Thank you, I wasn’t trying to deny her background.. some people are saying if a non black person dressed as a black character it would get called out and I’m like huh? If someone that is not black wanted to dress like for example: Suzie from the rugrats.. by all means wear her yellow and purple dress, as long as youre not doing blackface, yellowface, etc then there should be no problem cosplaying another character. but idk i’m just trying to see the other side and why it offended people so i can better understand and learn
