hey berndor, i've only skimmed through the skin color issue posts u blogged about and it's quite sad how these arguments come up. i personally support anyone who can make an amazing cosplay and be the character no matter what the skin color is. skin color can also be affected by scene lighting. i couldn't help but notice no one mentioned non-asians cosplaying asian characters (example: mulan cosplayed by non-asian) and no one is making a huge issue of that. quite ironic. any thoughts?

this basically sums up my thoughts on the matter: http://berndor.tumblr.com/post/30143138285/and-one-more-post-not-necessarily-about-skin

i’m not personally offended by nonasians who cosplay asian characters, but i’m just trying to point out the hypocrisy in the argument
