OK SO HERE IS THE DEAL.
We were in pre-production for STC Ep4 and I got tired of making Star Trek stuff and needed a break, so I made Vic the Rin hoodie from the manga for Christmas, (BECAUSE I AM AN AWESOME FRIEND OKAY) and then on the shoot when I gave it to him, we were like ‘lol we should take pics because pool.’ (The pool has Haru dolphins in it HOLLA) So I borrowed a wig from somebody in the next town over and this happened. We were literally just playing around with a 5 minute cosplay shoot at like 1 am, in the middle of a super-pro Star Trek shoot for fun because we are otaku trash dork-nerds. I take full responsibility, and I regret nothing. :)
HOWEVER. Now I’m hearing that people are actually bitching about this?? To those people I would love to extend an extremely genuine go-screw-yourself. This was not some professional attempt at turning Vic into Rin in real life. This was me and my friend being dorks because we felt like having some fun. Which last time I checked, oh online community of mine, was what cosplay is all about.
So instead of harassing/sending hate mail/saying someone is too old to be cosplaying (WTF) because you don’t like a thing, how about DON’T do that? And if you have an issue with these photos, come at me bro, because I made them happen and I took them and I’m not even remotely sorry.
Besides, screw you guys, this hoodie is adorable. ^^
(just to preface, I am asking out of genuine curiosity and a desire to learn your side of things and have no intent of degrading or mocking you regardless of your answer) May I ask why/in what ways you feel the "tumblr kemetic community" needs to grow up? If you want to know the reasons why I am curious it's because I want to hear another side of the argument. Because so far the only reason I hear is non-kemetics yelling how they don't like it.
