We very well could! I haven’t been able to play in a while because of hectic schedules and the fact that my own laptop doesn’t work all that well. But my name on there is Princess Cay! Add me!
I mean even on League most of the people are trolls (sadly) but he was probably threatened somehow by your almighty female powers, dont let them get to you, you looked wonderful and you gave Katarina a good name.
It is pretty sad that people enjoy degrading others all for the sake of a good laugh if anything. It’s just one of the few things that get me fired up to the point where I’m shaking ha. That doesn’t happen often. But I’m glad you think it looks like Katarina, and hopefully it’ll start coming together here nicely.
Well thank you! I appreciate it. This whole thing goes beyond my cosplay though. I’m really hoping this guy is some sort of troll, because if he’s serious about what he said, the he has a pretty poor view of women in general.
Okay, this is going to be a quick rant time. So since I started playing league, I’d go on the LOL forums every once in a while and poke around making small chat when I could. Now since my cosplay is starting to form, I decided to post a WIP topic about my costume which I’d update as I progressed. Now I figured I’d get the typical “oh my gosh you’re a girl and your cleavage is showing that’s the only reason you posted this on here, you’re just doing this for the attention”, and I got plenty of it. I also got a ton of people being white knights or people who felt that my costume looked nothing like Bilgewater Katarina. I honestly don’t think some people understood what WIP means. But that’s whatever.
I think the one major thing that got under my skin was some person started ranting about how overweight I looked and that if one part of me looked bad, then the rest of my body must look hideous. Or worse, I’d have cellulite (DUN DUN DUN). Now this is where my past of being bullied and being called fat fires me up. Heaven forbid a woman has stretchmarks, because seeing stripes on a body is a total turn off to a person. Ever since I was in middle school I remember having them. And they don’t really ever go away. Even when I was pretty underweight. They’re just a part of life that really shouldn’t matter at all. I mean if a chick at my age doesn’t have them already, they’ll more than likely get them when they’re pregnant.
But I’m not just personally offended. I’m just really frustrated with people who have this view that a woman should be without flaw, that she shouldn’t have any extra fat hanging around her, and if she does she’s considered no good. This is the kind of image that gets ingrained into so many minds and causes so much defeat in a young lady. I can say personally that it’s incredibly disheartening to be called fat or ugly or just viewed as someone not beautiful. As I’ve grown I’ve come to accept and love who I am. I’m not perfect, I’m not photoshopped, I’m me. And every girl out their is their own beautiful piece of art and has been made just right.
AHHHH I have over 300 followers now! Thank you all for thinking my stuff is neat! It means a lot. c:
