#little dove #because she’s a beautiful thing kept in a cage#little bird #because sandor sees her as someone he can only admire from afar#little flamingo #because flamingos are pink and she’s a redhead #little american bald eagle #because she’s a stark and starks are an endangered species by now#little preying mantis #because she seems relatively harmless until she does kung-fu #little flying squirrel #because she doesn’t seem to be capable of flight until whoah mothafukka she leaps from one tree and is airborne #sansa for all the avian metaphors

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.
Reblogging for the eternally awesome cosplay and the eternally awesome commentary.
