Look, I know you don’t know me, and I’m new to this whole writing thing. Regardless, we’re going to learn about this together. This is the thing, I’m a cosplayer. When I say I love to cosplay, I mean I really LOVE to cosplay. I’ve been doing it for some time now, and I’ve seen that the community has a problem. Being a bi-racial person (black/Asian) and cosplaying someone who isn’t my skin color, I’ve been called the black version of [insert character]. It happens a lot. It’s sad and off-putting, but it happens. I’ve seen a black cosplayer dress up as a well-done Link, and this guy continuously called him Black Link and Dark link.  The PoC cosplayer corrects him, but he continued to do it until the cosplayer stalked away. This is one of the problems black people face as cosplayers. Now, let’s look up the definition of Cosplay.

Felt the need to do two interviews this month one being that this special lady was far overdue for the spotlight. I once again am at a loss for how I officially met, but I do remember the circumstances of how I helped her back in the day which I will not go into. Thankfully Victoria Dobiyah a.k.a Miss Kanzuki was kind enough to remind me of our first meeting and our long time friendship. It was when Injustice came out and streamers had made their own lobbies for people to come into to play. I joined yours close to when it was over for the night but I sent you a friend request to say next time you all were streaming, let me know because I wanna join. And from there we became friends!

NYCC was fun, but that Sexy Nerds After Party was off the Hook

This weekend was more than just New York Comic Con, because once the doors close what are you going to do next? After parties that’s what and lucky enough I help out Video Games New York with their Sexy Nerds parties that bounce around, but the best part is the interaction with fellow gamers, geeks, nerds and cosplayers. Nothing like taking the time to unwind, get your drink on and play some new and classic video games. This time around the party was located at Frames NYC, That is right a bowling alley took us in and it was a blast.
