[Pics] Meet Instagram’s Black Cosplay Queens

Avatar • Mar 24, 2017

For some people cosplay — dressing up as characters from books, movies and video games — is a lifestyle, and on Instagram there is an entire world of black women who cosplay. The detail that goes into their looks is tremendous, with many doing their own makeup, costume design and creation, and photography. There are dozens of black women cosplaying on Instagram, but here are a few of the definite standouts.

Oh sorry 🙁 Maybe, you can suggest one and ask BGLH to update the article afterwards? It’s just a randam idea, I really don’t know if that’s possible but that would be nice 🙂

AMAZING!!! I love seeing cosplayers with great costumes and makeup 🙂 It’s even more interesting when they don’t limit themselves to characters with the same skin complexion and/or ethnicity 😀 . I’m not a cosplayer but I think it would be super fun to try 😉

I love all of these–except for Moana. As the cosplayer is not Polynesian, she shouldn’t be cosplaying a Polynesian character in cultural garments, and many Polynesians have said that non-Polynesians should not as it’s disrespectful to their culture. Just last year you wrote an article on why non-Native POC/black women should not dress up as Native Americans/Pocahontas/etc, why is Moana/Indigenous/Polynesian culture any different?
