[I mayyyyy be doing a WIP on lesmoules' fantastic fanart. I just love their work so much and fighter!Levi has been on my list for a while. My face is obscured because I didn’t have time to put it on, BUT ONE DAY THE CIRCLE SHALL BE COMPLETED.
PS. It is really difficult to look built when you’re not. This was an exercise in contortionism.
Stay tuned for me in a skirt. More on that later.]
I was thinking about the proper way to thank you all for the good vibes and support I received during the last couple of days, so I decided to bring you one of the outtakes from my #nude #Erwin photoshoot. Once more again… Thank you, Tumblr! #SNK #AttackOnTitan #ShingekiNoKyojin
OH MY ERWIN

I didn’t post this, but thanks to OP for crediting me! And wow at all the comments & tags! Most of them had me cracking up but this one was not so good:
"you can really overlook skin color on how f*cking fantastic the cosplay is"
Skin color is not something negative you have to overlook to appreciate the ‘rest of’ the person you are looking at. It is not a flaw that you have to ignore in order to admire someone’s work. The person who said this was not complimenting me but exposing their own racial bias.
My skin color is not something ‘wrong’ with my costumes. Being a black woman enhances my costumes. Black women are the beautiful flowers that white supremacy tried to kill but we kept growing anyway. They try to tell us we’re ugly and dirty and sadly some of us start to believe it. They sell us skin bleach & hair straighteners, and white wash our characters and expect us to be complacent. When we speak out we’re told we’re too loud and angry and unfeminine.
I appreciate all the kind words on this post but I want to say that it’s not a compliment to express approval of someone ‘in spite of’ that person’s race. If you can’t appreciate my work without a negative remark about my skin color, the problem most certainly is not with me but within you.
Boo for people who need to be dicks to black cosplayers.
And yay for Jay Justice for being amazing and awesome.
