When is "black-facing" okay? Personally, as a POC cosplayer, I go out of my way to find characters of color such as Static Shock, Yoruichi, Esmeralda, etc—to cosplay so I can potentially be "cannon" in my cosplay but I also cosplay fun characters like Natsu, Mizore, Raven, and others because my skin color doesn't dictate what I can and cannot cosplay. Not once have I ever thought, "I should lighten my skin" for a non-POC character, so why is the cosplay community suddenly a breeding ground for "black-face" cosplayers?
It was the chemistry between us, I laughed with you. You became my best friend, then you were my boo. It was so magnetic the way I was drawn to you. The way that your hands connect to my body when you touched me, ooh. A feeling of comfort as if I already knew you. I was speaking to me and you were speaking to you, while in a room full of people, but it seemed as if it was just us two.
