Women cosplayers share the creepiest things that have been said to them in costume
I love this piece from BuzzFeed, because it rams home one very specific point about the interactions these people are having with creeps on the convention show floor: The cosplayers don't forget.
It's difficult to even know what to say about this sort of thing. It's sad reminder that the sick comments made at cosplayers during conventions don't fade away. They're stuck with the memory of those creepy, creepy words. They're not just throwaway comments.
But what's the solution? I haven't even the faintest idea where to begin. It's sad that so far the only real solution to the problem of cosplayer harassment is the resilience of the cosplay community.
