And THIS is why I don’t do interviews!!!! Yaya Han and Jnig aren’t ruining this hobby, creeps like this are! Not to sound like a narcissist, but I know I have a small following of “new” cosplayers on my page and I just wanted to warn you all about STRANGER DANGER! A REAL interviewer will NEVER ask you to take your clothes off! This is what Cosplay is NOT Consent was made for!!!!!
I would like to make it a point to say that this is not me MALE SHAMING! Girls can be creepers too! Actually, I have had more run ins with female creepers at cons than male! So please stop “apologizing for your gender”. This asshole does NOT represent you or anyone else but himself!
"HEY SO. Just thought I’d throw a warning out there, because it looks like he’s contacted a few other deviants. If you get a message from a guy named Sean Morales, or a request to do a cosplay interview for this group https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cosplay-Interviews/364194950380432 Be super cautious. He said he wanted to interview me as a cosplayer (not about Cosplay Deviants), and then spent most of his time in the Skype call trying to get me to remove my panties for him, or do “fanservice” for him stating not to worry if “something slips”. When I (very politely) told him I wasn’t going to do that, he told me “to just lift the skirt. It’s a situation that the cosplayer do”. Just in case he does reach out to any more of you”
Be careful when accepting interviews, ladies ‘n’ gents.
It’s been more than a week after the con and I still haven’t posted much about it anywhere at all. Over all I had a great time, bar a little drama here and there as there always is with cosplay. Unfortunately though, I had to deal with quite a bit more hate from my fellow con-goers than usual on Saturday while I was dressed as Jane Foster from Thor: the Dark World.
I really liked TDW for reasons I’m not going to fully spell out here, but I felt like they did a better job with the women, particularly Jane, than in the first film. She was clever and funny and still feminine. When the big strong man couldn’t save the day on his own, she fixed it with science. Between that and really liking her Asgardian dress/armour, I decided to cosplay her with my friend Mo as Lady Sif.
We knew the movie was only released in late fall, so we kind of expected to still be relevant/interesting on the con floor, and thought maybe we’d meet some other MCU folks for photos or something. What happened was people coming up to me just to tell me how much they hated Jane Foster.
