Hello, Galar customs department. I am here to declare that I am returning from the Hoenn region with my completely normal and otherwise boring Wooloo.

I fully support your efforts to keep unauthorized pokemon out of the region! Keep up the good work!

Well this seems legit, go on through.

I also have this completely normal and otherwise boring Pikachu with me. His name is "Screwball".


"Man, your wife is ugly."


Nah it keeps covering 'em up!


I'm pretty sure those aren't breasts. I think the red "dress" thing is part of it's body.

Oh Hey Sherlock. I was just thinking about how I haven't seen you around lately.

Wait, what happened to this post?


Probably got censored because of that racially insensitive Jinx!

Hey, I've been having a rough time and needed to step away for a while. How've you been?

Ok, let me break this down.

Jynx was not "censored". Japan has a long history drawing black characters in a racially insensitive "blackface" style. One they inherited from American media, but while in America blackface has become taboo and unacceptable, this issue still pops up in anime and manga. One of the bosses from Mega Man had to be redesigned to look less like this stereotype, in 2006. So in 2000, A person named Carole Boston Weatherford wrote one article about the history of racial stereotypes in anime and manga, and used Jynx as an example of what those kinds of characters looked like. Jynx specifically has been said to actually NOT be a caricature of blackface, but instead a reference to Japan's "ganguro" subculture. But given Japan's history on the subject, I don't think it was unreasonable thing to question or examine. So one person in one article said "Hey, Japan has a history of doing thing, Jynx kinda looks like thing." And Game Freak said "No, Jynx is not thing. This is just a cultural misunderstanding and we apologize. We will change Jynx's design a little to make it clear that it is NOT thing." That is NOT censorship. No one forced them to change anything or remove anything against their will. They chose to change it themselves of their own accord when they realized something about their creation was unintentionally problematic. To make pokemon more inclusive. That's all. This trend of calling any change in a medium "censorship" regardless of the reasons for or motivations behind the change isn't a good thing for two reasons. One, because it risks dismissing genuine concerns from marginalized groups of people and two because it diminishes the actual importance of stopping REAL censorship.


I'm doing ok! It was my birthday yesterday. Sorry you're having a rough time. Make any new cosplays lately?

Not lately, outside of the Collector I did for ACen. It's still technically unfinished, but I haven't been able to get the LEDs for it yet.

And happy belated birthday!

I'm not sure what the collector is. I've been watching a show on Youtube called "Odin Makes", where he makes low-budget cosplay items and props that look pretty convincing!

I've always wanted to make a syringe Freddy glove from the Arkham games for my Scarecrow costume.

>The Collector

I don't have a photo of my costume on the laptop, but it was really good. The actual designer and co-founder of Red Hook Studios saw it and was blown away. High point of my ACen for sure.


Hmm, sounds kinda neat
