Original “sailor melanin” posted months ago

>> No.10049188

This so much.
Also there’s been hella people on my timeline clearly stealing hee hee’s wig styling method of flipping the wig upside down and steaming it and not giving credit

>> No.10049190

.....That's a styling technique, not stealing a unique idea. Flipping upside down is a very common way to fluff up wigs, and I really doubt Hee Hee would claim it's stolen.

>> No.10049217


Nothing about this reeks of stolen idea to me. Sailor Moon pattern swapout are an insanely common idea, as is racebending popular characters, and the executions are totally different.

Hell, I was one of three people who ran into each other at Dragoncon this year all dressed as Sailor Mariott with the carpet print, and we each thought we were the first one to think of it.

>> No.10049218

That's been a styling method for as long as synthetic wigs have been a thing. This is why 99 percent of "stole my idea!" crying is bullshit

>> No.10049242

This is such an obvious selfpost i feel so much cringe

No one cares about your special sailor moon variants, it’s ALWAYS sailor moon

That's adorable and I love you

lol unless youre literally mass producing exact copies of a cosplay to sell for megabux, there is no such thing as cosplay idea theft

I absolutely love how that carpet is a meme. I have never been before but man for sure I’d make something based off it if I did go. Maybe like a King of All Cosmos or something.

>> No.10049422

this. Hell I do it too and I didn't know about hee hee

i love it

>> No.10049456

It's possible to steal an obviously original design like how Momokun operates, but OP's post is just about a concept. It's only a problem if someone wholesale copies a cosplay or art design and then refuses to credit.

>> No.10049462

I agree, there is no cosplay theft, only homage that the cosplayer should be grateful for. Too many cosplayers give the bad attitude when really he should be happy to see it and receive more exposure.

>> No.10049521

Thats like saying everyone that's used worbla stole it from Kamui because she helped popularize it...

>> No.10049705

I've been out of the cosplay scene for a while finishing school, but I'm looking to get back into it and this method sounds super interesting. I found a post on instagram where HeeHee talks about a Deku wig they steamed but does anyone have a tutorial to share?

>> No.10050786

didn't know styling a wig a certain way can only be done by one person. are you that pathetic and self-entitled?

>> No.10053726

Can't you just cosplay like a normal person instead of making your entire existence revolve around being back

>> No.10053799

You can’t steal a style of stitching/ironing or whatever the fuck.Am I stealing someone else’s style of sewing because I did a back stitch? Is it stealing an idea when someone dresses up in Lolita? This is a vendetta thread.
Because right wingers can’t into cosplay so they have to appeal to the “yaaaaas queen slay *gif of black woman sipping tea*”market.

>> No.10053830

That's a stupid argument, do you comment on people doing "captain canada" type costumes with "you're making your entire existence revolve around being canadian"? People wanting to pay homage to their heritage is only playing on one aspect of their identity, not making their entire identity revolve around it.

I’m not gonna act like wh*teoids don’t do it too,but they always have to make everything about black people.Like black history month even though whites have a better culture or that “black woman smiling” hashtag.They were so offended by the “white woman smiling” hashtag even though it had nothing to do with them.It’s pretty obvious that anyone who makes melanin their selling point has nothing else going for them

>> No.10053925

>whites have a better culture
haha ok dude bye

>> No.10053967

She's combing her heritage and a show she loves into a design that honours both, why does that mean she's revolving her existance around being black? Plus, the end product is stunning imo

>whites have better culture
before you sounded bitter and now you just sound like a racist

>> No.10062907

The Kinte? cloth is literally black culture in that its such a cultural thing as black people get more and more into cosplay (and now that Black Panther made 800? million), I unironically expect to see loads of that),

Sailor Moon is kinda baby's first magical girl (now second, thanks Madoka), so I expect that.

>> No.10062916

I thought this was just another disguised racebait thread.
