This is important.
Even though I *do* choose to cosplay a ""sexy"" version of my Winter Soldier, others may not choose that and that is fine by them.
Their opinion on that is their opinion. No arguments, no exceptions.
People deserve to feel comfortable, happy, and safe in their costumes— No matter what kind it is!
Some people find their confidence through tight clothes, some don't. If someone expresses their displeasure for girls flaunting their bodies, that's their opinion.
Now, what I'm also tired of (and this is a similarly related, but not totally off-topic thing), is what I experience a lot of.
Just because I decide to be ""sexy"" and show skin does not give anyone the right to make comments or send messages.
•No, I don't want to cosplay that version of fem!Edward Elric, her breasts are actually exposed. It's literally JUST a scrap of fabric!
•No, I won't do that version of that loli you really like. She's like 12 and I'm *pretty* sure that's illegal…
•If your hand goes south, because I can feel it creeping lower on my back, I will put my boot through your kneecap.
•Look, you're at least a foot taller than me and outweigh me by 30-50lbs, please don't back me into this corner.
•Don't ask me what's under the jacket.
It's t-shirt and a bodysuit.
There, now you know.
*I've had these kinda of things happen when I was in full clothing too, these aren't isolated incidents*
It takes $0.00 not to assault someone. It takes $0.00 to be a good person.
