  • League Of Black Cosplayers

    Since there aren't many black characters in anime, African Americans, much like myself, are challenged with thinking outside of racially correct cosplaying. Those that aren't afraid i have deemed "The League of Black Cosplayers". I soonwill be joining this and i am wondering, who else is out there?

    Not me, since I am not black. But good luck anyway.

      To be fair, most Asians doing cosplay look nothing like the characters from a racial perspective either.

        Dude just cosplay whatever characters you like, don't let your skin colour dictate it for you

        Examples of such:







        All of these look great. Cosplaying is about having fun! So just cosplay as the characters you like the best.

            I'm not certain why race matters in cosplay unless the character's core characteristics are somehow related to their skin tone.

            I don't know of many characters that would be awkward to cosplay as a member of another race, to be honest. Heck, if GENDER isn't much of an issue in the cosplay community, I can't see why race would even be a blip on the RADAR.
            ...there is no good reason for smart people to subject themselves to barrages of epithets, delivered by people who have not yet been taught to think critically.

              I'm not saying it matters but i respect all other black people that do this. It ranges from really epic, to hilarious.

                    Google Captain America Isaiah Bradley.

                    Most anime characters are Japanese and most cosplayers I see don't look even a little Japanese so I wouldn't worry too much about cosplaying as a character from a different ethnic background. Most people I see are doing it most of the time.

                        I think it was on some other site, someone who was Japanese complained about cosplayers who weren't. He considered it racist that Westerners would portray Japanese characters. My reaction would have been to ask how many Japanese anime characters actually look Japanese, but someone beat me to it.

                        Plus not all anime characters are Japanese. Gunslinger Girl, Bacanno!, Hellsing and a few others do not have a single Japanese character.

                          There is always some jackass ready to jump up and call everything racist.

                              Ok, time for a basic reading lesson.

                              most
                              [mohst]
                              adjective superl. of much or many with more as compar.
                              1. in the greatest quantity, amount, measure, degree, or number: to win the most votes.


                              all
                              [awl]
                              adjective
                              1.the whole of (used in referring to quantity, extent, or duration): all the cake; all the way; all year.

                              Most means in the greatest quantity. Most anime characters are Japanese means that Japanese characters are in the greatest quantity. This is what I posted.

                              All means the whole of. All anime characters are Japanese would mean that the whole of anime characters are Japanese. This is what you responded to.

                              Seriously, learn to read.
