"Darkening" Skin with Makeup Opinions
I am faced with a problem.
I am cosplaying Aveline from Assassin's Creed. The problem is, I am white. I've looked at some of the other cosplays, and people are okay with "blackfacing" but I've seen such negative opinions towards it. I'd like to make my skin look a little more bronze, but not black face.
My question is, what is your opinion on darkening skin with makeup for a costume? Is it bad for me to cosplay this character if she is black? The last thing I want to do is disrespect anyone.
