Bringing you the very best in comics art and cosplay - 10,000 posts and still going strong! KoC has been linked to/reblogged by the likes of Neil Gaiman, Brian Michael Bendis, Dave Gibbons, Gail Simone, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Kieron Gillen, Mike Deodato Jr, Marcio Takara, Adam Hughes, Paolo Rivera, and Ty Templeton. KoC has also been mentioned on Comics Alliance & The Mary Sue. (I'm not one to brag, though.)
My personal blog is here, FWIW.
After reading this ignorant post, I felt the need to make a response post:
If your cosplay looks
You can indeed be a geek.
You can indeed be cute.
You can indeed be creative.
You are always worthy of respect, no matter what you wear.
Clothing is not an indicator of self worth. A person is a person, no matter what they wear. Cosplay in itself can be an art form, but it can also be just for pleasure; shits and giggles and all that. Fuck anyone who tells you your self worth and “level of geekiness” is low due to this. Fuck that noise.
You are not an attention-whore. You are simply enjoying what makes you happy.
Yay for positive posts about positive attitudes!
