Just because PuccaloveU2 is offended by this doesn't make it racist. 

PuccaloveU2 makes a good point tho. Your skin color is not your costume.

Some people look at their body as a canvas to work with. I know Hope and her sister have repeatedly transformed their bodies to try and accurately portray their characters. They do it for many reasons but defiantly not to offend, dismiss, hurt, or pain other people for the way they were born. 

There are many fights out there to be fought over race but in this instance it is not the case. 

It is truly sad that people still feel so much pain over something, in this case, so completely innocent. I think with some love and understanding from both sides here we can move forward as kinder and more thoughtful humans.

Brown facing ring a bell?

Keep in mind that's ryo-ki's human form

Skin color isn't a costume

Except when it is an alien who is brown.
The thing about black face is that it's supposed to be an offensive representation another person's race.

She isn't cosplaying someone of a different race.  She is cosplaying a cabbit in human form, who just happens to be brown.

Except when the character is a completely made up alien and is in no way offensive.  I'm not offended by this, I really don't know why you are unless you're trolling.  Not everything is race related.

"Black face" is the technical term you are looking for. I suggest you research your terminology and the character before you try and point fingers about who is doing what.

Keep in mind, this is her humanoid form. Which is completely a lose term that could represent a cross-breed likeness of an animal and a human or even human and technology. She also has a human form so that rules out it actually being a full human. There are also obviously screen shots of this character having fur.

There's Black face, Brown Face (Towards Latinos and Indians), Red Face (Native Americans), and Yellow face (Asians)

All have a painful history so read about that.

Ryo-oki in her human fur has no fur

Yeah while were at it, if youre cosplaying as avatar characters dont "blue face" everyone knows who youre cosplaying as, blue face people have it hard too. Imagine if you were blue, would you want people to do that cosplay? This is literally how you sound. Latinos, indians or whoever you think would be offended by this are not. Youre the reason political correctness has its eyes rolled at it lately

This isn't the case of a White person cosplaying a Black person/character. Ryo-ohki is an alien... who is brown an furry. Quite honestly, I thought her make-up was nicely done-- not over exaggerated and rather tasteful.

I don't see why? Ryo-ohki is a brown-furred alien. I fail to see the need to take precautions. Besides, it's all about the intent. Do you honestly think that she intended on painting herself dark, as a racial slur? I certainly don't and I wouldn't gather it from this picture. It's a costume. Not a satire, or a comedy, meant to demean people of color. I have faith that she knows the difference between blackface and theatrical make-up.

Guess what smooth skin isn't fur

Brown and Dark skin isn't a costume point blank

Miss-Marquin Featured By Owner May 25, 2014
Gah, taking this so seriously. Like I said, it's the intent behind it. This isn't a racial slur. She's not demeaning a minority. It's a costume, in which she wore make-up to portray a character, because she doesn't have a naturally brown (furry) body. Honestly, I'm curious, what would YOU do? Wear a fursuit? Do you get offended when people paint themselves orange? Or white? It's the same thing. She's not hurting anyone here. It's a costume, which apparently means absolutely nothing anymore.

She's actually furry and brown, even when she takes the form of a human so... sorry, it's not "black/brown face." Thanks though!

Still doesn't excuse the skin coloring because everyone knows who you're cosplaying as. You should just leave the skin part alone.

That wasn't fur
