puellamagiryan asked: I just saw a post reblogged on my dash about someone from Homestuck doing this, and I feel I have to ask you and your intelligent followers: can one cosplay a character with a physical disability without making it seem like the physical disability itself is the costume? For example, the post I saw, buying a wheelchair and using it in a cosplay?

to me it seems really fucked up to buy a wheelchair for a cosplay. like, there are people who require a wheelchair to live their life and someone’s just gonna be like “I need this wheelchair for dress-up!”

I’d say if they donated the wheelchair to someone who needs it after the convention, but overall, I don’t think it’s appropriate at all

what do my disabled followers thing about this?

I asked a disabled friend about this when I was considering cosplaying Bennet from Dollhouse. This is what she said:
I think when people use wheelchairs, canes, slings, and costume prosthetics… I think they fictionalize disability. The character is canonically disabled (and played by an able bodied woman), true. But placing mobility aids and injury aids into a real life context on an able body creates a fictionaliization issue. We already live in a world where people don’t believe I’m blind or deaf. 

For me, I don’t mind. At least if the character is disabled. I almost encourage it, In my mind it would move people away from the lame and frustrating jokes about me only being Professor X from X-Men.

I think that if there were more characters or cosplayers that did disabled characters, it would help me feel better about cosplaying characters that aren’t disabled.

Surely if doing a disabled cosplay fictionalises the disability, then doing a Batman cosplay fictionalises orphans?

"hi im tumblr user k1ckst4rt and I can’t tell the difference between the way society treats/sometimes romanticizes the concept of orphans and the way society mistreats and stigmatizes disabled people at every level of their existence."

shut up

That’s a ridiculously presumptuous response, of course I can tell the difference, but in terms of cosplay, I don’t think one should be acceptable and one shouldn’t.. I’m no cosplay expert so I’m looking at this from an outside perspective, but I see cosplays of disabled characters as a positive thing…

It’s not the disability that defines them, it’s their character, hence I don’t feel it would be ‘inappropriate’ for someone to use a wheelchair for example in a cosplay, it’s not like they’d be saying ‘look I’m disabled’, more like ‘I’m such and such character, who just happens to be disabled.’

There was no need to jump on my back about my comment, I don’t even know how this debate appeared on my feed in all honesty as cosplay isn’t really an interest of mine..

But I wasn’t deliberately offensive, if you had a problem with my comment then address me like a person and explain why, I’m always open to people’s views and ideas, not so much to being misquoted and told to shut up..
