I just saw a post about a white cosplayer making themselves as Garnet (which is a black character) and I don't really understand why people went 'omg, blackface, blackface!'

It's a cosplay, the point is to play characters that you love, even if they are black skinned, lizard skinned, red and black skinned, blue skinned...

That they scream blackface about fashion models or shows or movies or even real life 'helping', okay, I'm all with you. I saw an article about model being painted rather than getting actual black people and I find that disgusting.

But cosplaying? That's the whole point, being someone you aren't. Black people cosplay white characters too, black people cosplay asian characters, asian people cosplay caucasian characters, you cosplay a character because you love it, regardless of skin tone.

If we could only cosplay characters from our own ethnicity, there should be a warning.

And asking someone to off themselves is just beyond the pale.
