So I’ve been watching this transaction develop on my dash for quite some time now, and instead of messaging the person who these comments are directed at, I decided my point would be better illustrated in a form of a post.
The receiver of this hate is the marvelous Tipsybutt. For you to better picture her, here are some pictures of her in cosplay:
Full size is here.
She’s a really cute girl isn’t she? Not only is she cute but you can see two other things in these pictures.
The first would be that her cosplays are well made and that she clearly puts forth a lot of effort into them.
I can’t stress that enough. You could be a size 00 and your cosplays could be shit. You could be prancing around the con in a ratted wig, a closet cosplay, and a makeup job that would make even a blind person cringe. And still be a size 00.
And no, those photos are not deceiving. I have personally seen two out of three of those cosplays in real life and they’re fantastic.
The last thing you see when you look at her is her weight. It’s irrelevant.
I personally notice the workmanship, the handmade skirt, top, the styled wigs, the flawless makeup, the chainsaw prop. They’re all wonderful.
If you can’t see those things, or cannot look past something so meaningless as weight then you obviously do not have the sane judgement of whether or not a cosplay is a decent quality.
You think you do, but in reality you don’t. You’re just too caught up in the fact your opinion is the right one to realize that.
The second thing that you notice in Tipsybutt’s photos is that she is enjoying herself.
And guess what. That is what cosplay is about. When it comes down to it isn’t about whether you buy or make the costume, or your skin color, or whether you’re underweight or over it. It’s about having fun.
If you like making the costumes that’s awesome. If you enjoy only going to the meetups and just buy it that’s fine too. If you just wanna cosplay your OC. It’s all fine. However, if you need to bash someone for the fact they are having fun, degrade them and tell them they’re trash, they’re worthless, then guess what.
You’re cosplaying wrong.
You could have the most elaborate dress or armor suite or prop and I would not give a flying shit. If you cannot have fun without putting everyone else around you down, then this hobby is obviously not for you. Why? Because all of us who are doing this are part of a sub culture. We are all judged for dressing up in a costume, overweight or not. To mainstream society we’re all just a bunch of losers in costumes.
But hey, we’re happy losers so that’s all that matters.
Except for you it seems. It seems you get your kicks out of making everyone else feel like shit, or attempting to. And as a result, you’re cosplaying wrong, not Tipsybutt. She isn’t gonna stop anytime soon and you’re getting no where with your goal of degrading her. You’re only making yourself unhappy.
As a result, you need to stop. Both sending messages that go against Tumblr’s community policy and cosplaying.
You’re only hurting yourself in the long run.
this this this a million times this.
and the same goes for people underweight or any weight really.
remember, kids, your mouth and your asshole should remain two separate things, don’t spew shit from both ends.
Wow, this girl is absolutely beautiful, and I personally think it would be a blast running into her at any con. I may not know her, but her cosplays are wonderfully done, and I admire the amount of effort she has put into them. I simply cannot see why any anon or anyone for that matter would even want to waste their cruel words and send them to someone who is doing what they love and looking good doing it.
Thank you OP. I’m really happy you made this post because honestly, I feel self-conscious all the dang time about my cosplays but I always try to have as much fun as possible in them. It isn’t about size or quality. It’s about making the best with what you’ve done.
Reblogging to let people see this. This is why a lot of people think they can’t cosplay.
