Who in the fuck told you such ableist and fucked up shit? Sorry for my language there but there is NO ONE who SHOULDN’T cosplay ANYTHING that they want to.
If cosplay for strictly confined to people cosplaying what they “matched” to a T then there’d be not crossplayers, no white cosplayers cosplaying asian characters (aka most animes) and no asian cosplayers cosplaying from series like Harry Potter. There’d be NO ONE able to cosplay DBZ and Code Geass because the bodies in those animes are anatomically impossible. And Avatar would be out of the question because no one is of the Fire Nation because they are a fictional culture.
We all, not matter what we cosplay, alter out cosplays to make them work for us. For example, I just wore Dante for the first time. I’m not his build, but I tailored the coat so it makes me look a little broader on top. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you doing the same for anything you want to cosplay.
I actually know a local(ish) cosplayer who cosplays Ariel (the Little Mermaid) in a wheelchair. Mind you I don’t know if she is disabled, but she looks amazing and is THE Ariel cosplayer in my eyes. I’ve also met a Tony Stark cosplayer in a wheelchair and they looked amazing.
There are characters who use wheelchairs, if you are interested, but my advice is to cosplay your favourite character and not feel constrained to this category or that. Most cosplayers freely transcend categories regularly, and to say that one population of people can’t do the same is hypocritical.
I look forward to seeing your cosplays and hope to meet you at a con sometime ;)
So let me get this straight: the Ferguson PD took the time to write an overly detailed, 18 page police report for the ALLEGED petty theft of $49 dollars worth of cigars, but they didn’t even fill out an incident report for Darren Wilson shooting Mike Brown dead? A two page (mostly blank) report for a shooting death, and an 18 page report for cigars??? The Ferguson PD didn’t cover Mike Brown’s body, they left Mike Brown’s body out on the street for nearly four hours, they didn’t write a police report at the scene, they immediately launched a campaign to smear Mike Brown posthumously…does any of that sound even remotely legit?
2. when they finally got around to filling out the police report, the ONLY info they completed was the name of the victim, the shooter, and the date they filled out the “report”. that’s it. that’s all
3. Missouri has an open “sunshine law” that requires them to make nearly any police reports publicly available immediately, so for over ten days they violated that law too
4. [EDIT] Most importantly let’s never forget what caused this needless
deathmurder - Darren Wilson racially profiled, then stopped, then harassed, then fatally shot Mike Brown 6 times for the “crime” of walking-while-Black, aka jay walking, NOT for alleged petty theft, because at the time Wilson had no idea about any cigars or any alleged theft
Ferguson is a perfect example of a sundown town, and from beating up innocent Black drivers, to repeatedly tear gassing and threatening unarmed protesters to routinely racially profiling and profiting off of Black drivers, Ferguson is showing over and over just how little they truly value Black lives
If…IF there’s even just one honest cop in the Ferguson PD, now is the time to step up

I miss ballet folklorico.
If there was one thing I had fun doing while in school it was dance.
I regret not continuing to dance.
Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
one time when my dad was in college these guys found a carpet on the sidewalk and they needed furniture for their dorm so they were like “hell yeah free carpet” and they carried the carpet upstairs and it was really wet and heavy so they unrolled it to let it dry and a dead body fell out

my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men.
and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls.
girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.
