Hey I'm Liz, I'm 21 and an Illustration major [my art blog is painted-lizard.] I live in the midwest and whenever I'm not drawing I'm on here...
I Love art, music, interiors, product design, old cars, food, cosplay, Dr Who, Grimm, Batman, Star Trek, Supernatural, Sherlock, Avengers, Adventure Time, frozen yogurt, the Colbert report and Daily Show, Monster High, Daria, reading, dancing, monsters [zombies, werewolves, vampires], movies, animals, the beach, summer, lakes or being near any big pool of water really, HIMYM, about 10,000 other tv shows, games, comics and fro yo. Really any food in general is pretty great.
john quincy adams was the first US president to grant a personal interview to a female reporter, and the only reason he allowed it was because the reporter (anne royall) caught him skinny dipping in the potomac, sat on his clothes, and refused to let him get dressed until he answered her questions and if you dont think that’s one of the coolest stories of early US society then idk what to tell you
these two have stopped the apocalypse like 4 times and it is this easy to casually sneak up behind and taze them
Okay, but like, the more you watch it, the funnier it gets. Like there’s the obivous: their fucking faces. But then Sam’s gunshot? Like what were you trying to shoot, Sam? And then he just collapses dramatically like, ‘Why, gun?? You have failed me.’
and then there’s dean who’s just like “neeghhh I have accepted my fate”
Guys this picture is so important to me. Sometimes i back out of cosplaying a character because im worried people will judge me or shame me for doing it because im black. Im constantly worried people wont take my cosplays seriously because im just a black girl dressing up as iconic white characters. And sometimes that fear makes me feel like I shouldnt do it, like cosplaying isnt for me and I shouldnt go to cons.
But meeting this little girl made me understand how important it is to show my love for characters even if they arent my race. This little girl came up to me and asked for a picture at LexCon, and I almost cried. She came up to me the ONLY black Harley in a sea of perfectly “accurate” white Harleys. And I was so happy she did, and so happy I was there. Im glad I chose to cosplay a character I love, and to be there representing black cosplayers, because now this little girl might have a little bit more confidence in herself. Maybe my being there helped this little girl see that even girls like her can be geeky and cosplay whoever they want.
I really hope so. I know this made me feel more confident. And this is a picture im gonna treasure forever!
what the fuck are you talking about “white girls” she’s 100% right take your misogynistic bullshit out of here
nothings worse than passing up an opportunity you know you would’ve enjoyed because of the fear of being judged

These dudes are legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
