Question Cosplaying Blonde Characters

Hello all you sexy people,
I am currently working on my Briar Rose (Peasant Aurora) and Black Canary cosplays. I am still new to cosplay and normally use my hair, but for next year, I decided to step it up with wigs.
Now my issue is blonde wigs. Lately, the media has gone ham on black women wearing blonde wigs, calling it trashy and blah blah . I think we all remember the "Chaka Cumberbatch" incident; and if you don't know, educate yourself: http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2013/...eople-hate-it/
And even I can't help but notice it doesn't look good one everyone. However, I want to stay true to the characters . If anyone can help me figure out this whole blonde hair, dark skin thing, please reply here or in a pm.
Much love,
Bella

Ppl say to go with Golden/Honey blonde colors instead of the lighter blondes. I'm worn wigs in mostly all blonde colors and never thought "this wig is too light for me" since I was a child I've put on a blonde wig and ppl never once mentioned it was too light for me. If the character has platinum blonde hair I will not change the color unless it's something I want to change and not cause some ppl said it don't look good on our dark skin.

I'm an athlete that plays basketball overseas, and i'm proud to be a black cosplayer! I do it every chance I get. I also do a lot of charity fundraisers as my characters. Though my username should give away my character, i'm also known as the "Chicago Darkkest Knight". I will be showcasing my new suits at ANIME IOWA "14" this year....so come out and kick it with me...Mikey "the party turtle". P.S. stop by my page and drop me a message as I am new here.

@Bella They say its trashy, but what do they know. Fads change all the time. Their not experts usually they are there to tell the news. Whatever source that may be. So I wouldn't depend on the news for "advice". See for yourself if you like the style or not.

I'm a black cosplayer located in the Antelope Valley (Quartz Hill, CA). I've always dreamed of creating and wearing amazing costumes since I was a little girl, but didn't start cosplaying until 2012 with my debut of Catwoman.

I am always up for meeting new people and gaining new friends!

As for the blonde hair query I read earlier, I say go for what you really want. If you want to stay true to the character, then do that. Don't let naysayers bring you down! I just ordered a blonde pigtail wig for my Harley Quinn cosplay and I'm excited! I'd be lying if I said I'm not nervous and don't care what others will say, but my love and excitement for this costume outweighs any nerves/fear I may have.

I'm excited to see everyone's costumes, no matter what you choose to do with them

I count?

I'm Puerto Rican and Jamaican, I count I think. I'll be at CTcon on Sunday! ^_^


Week 1. How did you get into cosplay?
I've always been into it but 2011 was my first failed attempt. This year I challenged myself more.

Week 2. What is your favorite/least favorite convention and why?
I didn't really enjoy Hartford ComicCon except the Cosplays. There was nothing to really "Do" like at CTcon. Which are the only two Cons I've been too. I did however LOVE seeing the Breaking Bad Panel with Esposito.

Week 3. What is your main pet peeve for cosplay and/or conventions? Life?
Nothing yet. We'll see how Con goes this sunday lol
