It's awful.
the worst part being like my main cosplay is a humanized sonic, and I got called buy some kid (by kid I mean like a 13 year old boy) who was like "Sonic is white" I was so mad like not he isn't he's a hedgehog he doesn't have a race, kid. It's just like the little things like that, they just make me feel bad for even trying. not enough to stop be I have def. thought about it

I'm black. I like to cosplay dark skinned characters but I am going all out this time.
To those who say that it's not realistic I just sit there thinking: of course, I mean you're totally a ninja/demon/mystical creature with purple eyes and blue hair...totally....totally.
Besides, there are plenty of white people who cosplay dark skinned characters. I've seen plenty of caucasian michiko malandros or urd from Ah my goddess, or Fran from FFXII.
edit: http://www.colorq.org/petsins/2005/9/charas.aspx?x=ag This site has a list of many manga and anime characters with dark skin if that's what some of you are interested in.

It's annoying how ignorant people can be especially within the cosplay community. It's supposed to be about having fun be the moment you're not the same "race" it's like "....Well, that character is lighter... why did you want to cosplay them?" If that's the case NO ONE can cosplay Sonic only hedgehogs can. Stupid people. I would feel more comfortable if I had black friends who cosplayed with me at cons but I don't have any that are into anime/cosplaying -_-

BRAND new black cosplayer here.

I've wanted to cosplay since I went to my first AX in 7th grade, but have never met ANYONE irl who cosplays. Cold world lol
I finally found one friend who's really into anime so she and I are going to go to AX together this summer, but I really wanna start going to some cons like asap / don't want to wait til July. I'm so excited to finally get into this stuff

I'm going to start with a Homestuck cosplay for my first one because it's generally simple (humanstuck!Meenah) and then from there I want to do some Legend of Zelda stuff.
