Over excited monkey auditions for Project Runway. 

I’m continuing my research into medieval textiles and fashion, and there’s all this fascinating etiquette about wearing gloves in the middle ages:

  • Gloves were never worn when taking the hand of your dancing partner
  • The act of picking up the glove of one’s lady love was a sign of deep devotion. Men sought permission to pick up their lady love’s glove and return or retain it. 
  • The manner in which a man wore gloves and the way he removed them had to be given careful attention while he was paying court to his beloved. “There were subtle meanings in the manipulation of the glove, which might have serious consequences.”
  • Giving someone a gift of gloves was a special way to recognize one’s indebtedness to the recipient, or to acknowledge the receipt of a favor. Gloves were also given to guests by the host at a banquet or ceremony. 
  • If you were a fashionable noble in the 1400s, you carried your gloves slung in a belt around your waist, or in a pouch at your waist.
  • It was considered a great insult to address a high personage, or to greet a friend, without first removing the glove of the right hand. 
  • Gloves treated with poison were favorite gifts to send to your greatest enemy.

One thing about cosplay and blackface is that, whenever the theme -blackface- is discussed, there are always white cosplayers saying things like:

“What if I want to paint my skin green? Am I being offensive towards green fictional people?” And like… How fucking clueless can white people be?

Here’s the living proof that they still see us as THINGS and not ashumans. As if out skin tone didn’t actually exist in real life.

They love to compare our skin with fictional colours because that’s what we are for them: “not human”, which was something very common for white people to think back in the vitorian days when they said “black people have no soul”. That was the excuse they used to torture and kill us and that’s still the excuse they use whenever they kill our brothers and sisters.

There’s nothing more humiliating than being compared to a thing that is not real (green, blue,redish pink skin). We are humans, we exist!

Don’t you dare use our pain as a costume, don’t you dare use our skin tone just for fun, knowing that once you get home, all you’ll need to do is wipe it all out.

We, black people do not have this choice, we’ll live and die in this skin.

The next day you’ll be praised by professional cosplay blogs all over the world and by fellow cosplayers, the next day,
black cosplayers will be mocked, hit, or made into a thread on anonymous boards saying:

“Looks like Goku went to the beach the whole day” or stuff like “Sorry, I’m not racist but your skin tone doesn’t match character ‘x’, why don’t you cosplay a 'y” black character instead?“. Or thins like "He looks like a monkey”, “Why are her lips so big? She should make them smaller”.

jake's wonderful wardrobe

autisticandroids: We have three distinct Jake Fashion Eras first “solid color onesie”, then “bus seat”, and finally “adorably pretentious hipster”… anyway so my theory is that Jake Sisko doesn’t dress himself until he turns eighteen.
