"Cosplay is getting to be more corrupt as it becomes more mainstream. It's becoming more about looking like a Victoria's Secret model and being bullied if you don't. I, for one, am tired of it. Cosplayers are being told, verbally or otherwise, that they need to look a certain way to do what they love. Cosplay is not a beauty contest. Society has done enough harm to the issue of body image. Lets keep it out of the cosplay community."
Going to small Doctor Who themed party this Saturday.
Duct Tape? Check
Leather spanking paddle? Check
Liability forms for people to sign to cover my ass? Check
today I learned thar Martha was whiny and pathetic and left her family for the Doctor, River was clingy and her whole life was just about the Doctor and Clara is no real character but a mere plot device.. i wonder, are we watching the same show?
I’M JUST…if I were you I wouldn’t take any of that criticism seriously
It’s pointed out a billion times in series three that Martha’s affection for the Doctor is unhealthy, and she literally did the opposite at the end? like she literally left the Doctor for her family. If anyone left their family for the Doctor it was Rose
River: Leads a fucking archeologist expedition on her own, does covert investigation, on her own, made her own detective agency, visits her parents without the Doctor, says no to travel with him(on at least two occasions), deals much better with losing the love of her life than Rose ever did, dated other people than the doctor, makes her own choices because she can be selfish. I could go on and on about how River’s life literally does the opposite than revolving around the Doctor’s.
We know about Clara’s parents, we know about her grandparents, we know she is bossy, she is bubbly, she can be compassionate, we know she loves kids, she work hard to prove herself, she had always wanted to travel, she is a teacher, she hates history - I’ve learnt more about Clara (and amy) than I ever learned about Rose, Martha or Donna. She is real fucking person with flaws and a detailed personality. Man I adore Clara and she deserves better than this fandom
Wonderful wonderful blog!!! I cross play as a guy, which seems to be common, but it's sooooo nice to see more blogs that feature guys cross playing. Woo hoo!!!!
I want to feature both. Any, really. I noticed, though, that although seeing women crossplaying as men at cons, it’s very rare seeing anyone praising them. I’m the one in the URL pic. I crossplay almost exclusively.
I try to balance genders as much as I can, but if you want to see a blog dedicated entirely to male-to-female crossplay, check out Men of Crossplay. It’s excellent!
