The Best Figure Skaters in the World:
Yuzuru Hanyu x Mao Asada
I made this gifset because Yuzuru and Mao are two of my favourite skaters ever and I see a lot of parallels between the two of them. The amount of effort and sacrifice that the both of them put into skating is just incredible and amazing. Mao started skating since she was 5 years old and Yuzuru, when he was 4 years old. Mao won the Olympic FS Silver Medal when she was 19, and Yuzuru won his Gold medal when he is 19. And the both of them are my source of motivation :)

This needs to stop. Like, seriously. I am so disgusted right now I don’t even know where to start. It’s people like this that just butcher the fun out of cosplaying. There are probably hundreds of “bad cosplay” blogs out there and I just don’t understand why people do this kind of shit. I scrolled through their posts of lovely cosplayers whose main objective was to have fun with something they enjoyed. It just hurt me seeing photos of cosplayers smiling and being in character and then this blog from the pit of hell brings it on here and insults them.
Let me make something clear: This is cyberbullying. I don’t want to hear anyone say “No, it’s criticism!” because that’s bullshit. This is not the kind of criticism cosplayers are supposed to get. Haven’t you ever heard of constructive criticism? This is not anywhere near that. This is bullying. You’re not helping the cosplayer at all. Don’t try to say “It will help them improve.” Um, no. The only thing it will help them do is make them feel like shit.
I know we can’t end this permanently, because it’s the internet, and some people just don’t care. But what you can do is find the most active “bad cosplay” blogs and report them to the tumblr staff. Make this shit aware. And this doesn’t just happen on tumblr. It happens on other sites like 4chan, reddit, Facebook… everywhere! Even IN REAL LIFE. You know how many people I’ve seen at conventions make fun of other cosplayers like we’re back in middle school? If you’re a con-goer, and you see that shit happening, confront them! Also, giving nice compliments at a convention, no matter how small it is, can really make someone’s day. Seriously, just saying something like “I love your makeup!” “I love that dress!” “Your cosplay is amazing!” can really make someone’s day. You never know if they’re starting out or if they’ve been doing it for a long time. Either way, it makes them feel good. And it motivates them to keep moving forward in such a fun hobby.
Cosplay is for fun and good memories, not to insult. Let’s keep it that way.
This has pretty too less notesAll of my followers should reblog this because this needs to stop. No one makes blogs about making fun of extreme sports fans that dress up for their teams or anything like that. Quit targeting people who are just trying to have fun and are passionate about the things they love.
And the nominees are…
