Humiliated At SE:NYC – A Cosplayer’s Story
Thin privilege is being able to cosplay in a skimpy costume and not being threatened to be thrown of the premises because of what you are wearing.
This WOC decided to cosplay wearing a Deadpool shirt, a black miniskirt and fishnet stockings. 5 minutes after her arrival she was approached by staff who told her that she had complaints about her attire and if they received any more complaints that she would be escorted off the premises. They told her that the convention was a “family friendly event.”
The kicker? There were other cosplayers (read: thin women) that were far more revealing and “inappropriate.”
She tweeted about her experience on Twitter and it spread to the point that the staff felt that they should “apologize” by giving her a coupon for a free t-shirt, as she puts it “a bandaid solution.”
Con Bravo is in less than two days and I only just finished my mock-up for Moxxi and I mostly just want to sleep.
Super Sailor Saturn is ready to go though, so I’ll at least have one new thing. Who knows maybe I’ll still finish Moxxi enough to wear it idk
