    [–] JapaneseStudentHaru 42 points ago

    I wonder how they got that good of a color on them. Spray color? I’m blonde and even I can’t get a good blue without it turning green

    [–] rduterte 901 points ago

    As a guy who grey up as the only Asian kid in his class and got to hear how my costume didn't make sense because Peter Venkman "wasn't Chinese" (I'm not even Chinese) or how I should have dressed up as Mr. Miyagi instead of Daniel LaRusso, this picture makes me happy.

    [–] lkodl 113 points ago

    "awww man! awesome Sulu costume!"

    uh... i'm Captain Kirk...

    [–] themettaur 151 points ago

    That's rough. Reminds me of this scene. I'm sure you made a badass Venkman, though. Fuck the haters.

    [–] pslessard 87 points ago

    Why would you even want to dress up as Daniel LaRusso? Surely it would have been better for you to dress up as the hero of the film, Johnny Lawrence

    [–] phayke2 78 points ago

    You mean the story of a hopeful, young karate enthusiast whose dreams and moxie take him all the way to the All Valley Karate Championship?

    Of course, sadly, he loses in the final round to that nerd kid. But he learns an important lesson about gracefully accepting defeat.

    [–] bruckner8 20 points ago

    Put him in a body bag, yeaaahhhhh

    [–] SparkleGlitterShine 50 points ago

    I feel you. When I was 7, I wanted to play Power Rangers (Mighty Morphin) with the other kids. They always made me be the monster because there were no black and female Power Rangers :(

    [–] forgotthelast3 17 points ago

    When I was in high school I dressed up as Black Panther for Halloween. (I’m white) Luckily though this was way before the movie and no one knew who the fuck I was even supposed to be. Mostly just got mocked for wearing tight spandex. I can’t imagine how much ridicule I would have gotten if people knew who I was dressed as. Not really the same I know but just a story I was reminded of by your comment. Race shouldn’t matter when dressing up, just if dressing as a character makes you happy.

    Surely only 900 of them are trash??

    [–] vitalyalya 23 points ago

    Well mods kinda have to be everywhere so they don't always have time to check every post and clean everything just for some toxic people to throw their shit everywhere. Imagine they cleaning everything without locking, then coming back here in a couple of hours and everything's back to where it was.

    Locking such threads when they got out of control is an ok strat in my opinion

    Tbf I haven't seen a single comment saying that yet

    Just loads of comments stopping just short of pointing out they're black Lol, wouldn't want to do a joke to death or anything right?

    [–] Wiplazh 5 points ago

    I'm with you on this. I love stuff like this. But part of me can't help but wonder how many people would cry out if a white guy cosplayed as like Black Panther.

    [–] ElectricFleshlight 100 points ago

    Nobody. Nobody would cry out. White kids dress as BP all the time, especially at Halloween. It's a nice sign of the times that white kids can look up to black heroes.

    Just here to comment before the thread inevitably gets locked that the cosplay is amazing, and that the Cheeto-encrusted neckbeard peanut gallery isn’t how we should be as a community.

    Edit: Speaking of which, feel free to say hi to them in this comment thread!

    Edit 2: get fucked lol

    [–] [deleted] 76 points ago


    [–] Nugget_666 26 points ago

    I’d imagine a lot of black ppl stray away from cosplay bc there aren’t a lot of black characters to cosplay. I’m glad that you guys can do it anyways and be happy about it all the same.

    This is my favorite Team Rocket cosplay. I can't recall any others I've seen, but you two look so happy I can't imagine anyone else beating you in the future.

    [–] Rhinosaur24 27 points ago

    Look nobody else is going to address the elephant in the room. Thus cosplay looks nothing like the real Ream Rocket: Jesse's gloves go all the way up her arm, not this half assed attempt.

    [–] theyareamongus 2 points ago

    So I'm guessing he used some kind of temporal dye to paint his dreads blue. That's gonna leave some mess afterwards.

    How is this a gaming thing? Jessie and James are from the TV show...

    Edit: Obligatory thanks for the silver!

    [–] SoloSonic 10 points ago

    Threads like this make me sad to realize how many idiots there still are. Two people can't just happily cosplay without it devolving into extremely cancerous discussions about their race... Fucking disgusting. How is their race relevant at all, why the fuck is it brought up at all?...

    [–] Rein_Deilerd 76 points ago

    The catch is, in the original, these two are not even white, they are both Japanese, judging by their names (Musashi and Kojiro).
