I want to start cosplaying, but im afraid of being judged because I have dark skin and want to be cosplaying as light skinned characters. Im not really sure what to do...

Dear EVERYONE,

As someone who runs this blog but is also a cosplayer, I hope to set some things straight. It’s sad this is still a fear people have about cosplaying because it’s not something you should be afraid of.

You should feel free to cosplay as anyone you want, because what matters more than any skin tone someone decided to color a character as in some comic book is the fact you love that character enough to want to dress up as them. For that day, you are that character. You’re the closest that character gets to being real. No one can take that away from you or judge you for anything. Lighter skin, darker skin, it doesn’t matter as long as you are having fun in your costume.

The people that do judge or try force the idea that you shouldn’t dress up as that character are wrong. Simple as that. Cosplay to have fun and to show your appreciation and love for a character. Nothing else matters.

I hope you do pursue cosplaying. It’s a fantastic thing to do and you will always be supported by your peers.

RoboFist's Spoiler-Free Review: "Guardians of the Galaxy"

Well, here it is, folks. The movie that nobody thought would work, the movie that really shouldn’t have worked, and the movie that comic book fans around the world never thought would ever happen.

Yet here we are, 2014, with a freaking Guardians of the Galaxy movie. And you know what? It’s not…

Today I went to Subway.

There were these 12 year old boys hanging around. As I got my food and left they were all checking me out like little prepubescent lemurs and one of them said “Can I get your number?” And I turned around and said “Why, you need a babysitter?”

One time we had missionaries over at our house, and my Mom mentioned the fact that there is a Star Wars religion. One of them got so excited that he clapped his hands together and blurted out:

"I WANT TO JOIN!!!!!!!!!!" 

The other missionary gave him a surprised look, and then, I kid you not, two seconds later it started pouring and hailing outside. 

The other missionary just glared at him and went: “Look at what you’ve done.”

Into the Woods Official Teaser Trailer

I’ll admit, as much as this film already rubs me the wrong way as a fan, the cinematography and the cast makes me frustratingly curious…
