"Oh nice. You do look like Aerith. Except with tan skin." Needless to say, the friendship did not last due to this and many other reasons.
It literally makes me laugh and shake my head when I think that people have told me that Latinas Can't Cosplay. Here's a big, fat middle finger to all the racists. Don't let anyone ever tell you, you can't cosplay because of the color of your skin and know that even though we may not know each other or ever meet, you have my full support. This Latina proved that you can become whatever character you want to be.
