And For Something Somewhat Completely New

Ranma Saotome - Content

I would have thought that my first blog post back from my lazy hiatus would be about an interesting storyline I was in back in February, not that Hioshi Jackson fucker.  What I am going to discuss is how my opinion on something that was hotly discussed in the black cosplay community, got me called out, lost friends, and in the end, I stopped caring because it’s less toxic people in my life.  Plus I want to address the situation too.  Normally I’d just ignore it and move on with more important things in my life, but I just want to say a few things and move on.  I’m also shutting off comments, because I feel this will be last I speak on this subject.

And now, let’s talk 28 Days of Black Cosplay, Part Deux!

BTW, the main reason as to why I’m bringing this up is because of a couple of Facebook groups I was in wanted to know why.

I originally opened up this blog as a place to post my frustrations.  At the time, LiveJournal wasn’t cutting it.  Some stuff I would talk about would come back and bite me in the ass because there are people on my friends list that would attack me for it, when I wasn’t asking to be attacked.  After opening up this blog, I dropped so much heavy stuff, and I didn’t care.  Eventually I felt that I needed to vent on what’s I thought was wrong with cosplay and how to fix it.  But all that stopped when I met someone.  Someone really chill.

Event Photos: Crissy and Friends

Crissy and Friends

28 Days of Black Cosplay… The Addendum

Ranma Saotome

So about a few weeks ago, I made this long post about my thoughts on this notion of 28 days on black cosplay.  Many people asked me why I spoke about it.  Simple really… Noone else would.  I knew that right after I opened my mouth and kicked over that wasp nest that there would be people who would respond, not in a good way.  I am thankful that people of all races and creeds agreed with what I said.  I also discovered that there were other black cosplayers out there who felt the same way as I did.  But that isn’t why I’m writing this.  Let me tell you what happened when I met and sat down with Harry… Or as I like to call him, Black Panther.
