"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

The unnecessary shrinking of Amanda ‘The Wall’ Waller frightens me. That’s right, it doesn’t just annoy me, doesn’t just make me roll my eyes, it frightens the hell out of me. Because it clearly means that if some real comic book fan – some boy, somewhere – doesn’t get a boner every time he sees a female in a panel, the world will end. Like something out of The Twilight Zone. Clearly. Because… what other excuse could there be? Why else would you have to go and eff with one of the only female (not to mention WoC) characters in the whole DC universe who isn’t 38-24-32?
ALSO, if you are going to cast an actress in the role who is under 200 lbs, at least make it the obvious choice – S. Epatha Effing Merkerson. Duh.

Monroe and Presley.

This is the most perfect picture I have ever seen ok.

Okay

And notice how he doesn’t have a six pack and she isn’t bone thin. Beautiful.

^ no.

Yes

Both these people had deep self destructive behaviors based on self-loathing.  These are images of people, not real people.  The real people struggled to maintain this hollywood image with drugs and food.
The standards of hollywood are even worse now, but even then many talented people &#8220;managed&#8221; by the studios and record companies took &#8220;diet pills&#8221; that were cheap speed and destroyed their bodies and mental health.
Both these people died of drug abuse, and in Elvis&#8217;s case, his physical decline was fraught with chronic constipation, and constant pain which he battled with prescription drugs.
Monroe&#8217;s abondonment issues created a dependence on barbiturates that would eventually kill her.
When you see these people, honor them by realising &#8220;the perfect picture&#8221; is false, both literally(photoshop) and figuratively.  These were real, complex, sad people, whose live&#8217;s were not made happy, despite having everything America values: money, beauty and talent.
These things were not enough to get them to love themselves.  Self care is the most important thing you can do.  Take care of your body, your mind and forgive yourself for those transgressions you take yourself to task for.  After all, if being &#8220;perfect&#8221; didn&#8217;t make these people happy, what makes you think it will make you happy?
