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.

Discussions, conversations, arguments, debates will mostly have two sides to it. It’s not often that one side will agree with the other. We all have our reasons for believing and/or standing behind a statement. At one time, I would stand behind my point and not give up until that person would concede, because I would verbally berate my view is the correct one. In my field of work, you really can’t do that. You have to see what you’re looking at, be reasonable, understand the points and then decide if you agree or not. Key word being understand. I think that’s something a lot of people forgotten about.
It’s not often I get praise for the things that I do. When it does happen, I get all odd and awkward about it, for I am not used to it. And I feel humbled. I always say that I am doing my job. Early this year when I uploaded my con photos, I saw a spike in the number of likes and comments. Seeing that made me smile. I knew that people out there enjoyed the work that I love doing. I don’t cherry pick when it comes to cosplayers. I try to hit as many I can for photos if they’re not in a rush or inconvenienced. If I am inspired, I’ll do an impromptu photoshoot (it has happened a few times).
