This is the audio track I built for our SDCC 2014 Masquerade entry entitled “Be a Fan.” A few members of our group sang their character parts, my wife and I recorded the rest of the solo parts, along with the chorus, and I layered multiple versions of all our singers for the different chorus bits to fill out the sound depth. All of it is layered over a karaoke track of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from the film Mulan.

Here are the opening dialogue lines and subsequent lyrics:

FANBOY:
Man, I can’t believe I got dragged to this nerdfest! If I ever find those guys, I’ll make them pay for ditching—-

(bumps into MAL COSPLAYER)

MALCOLM REYNOLDS:
Oh, pardon.

FANBOY:
What are you supposed to be, some kind of…space cowboy?

MAL:
Malcolm Reynolds. (beat) Firefly? (waits for reaction) You HAVE seen the show, right?

FANBOY:
I haven’t seen ANY of this stuff. Why would I?

(music starts)

MAL:
Let’s get down to business
I tell you no lie
No show past or present
Can beat Fi-refly

Take a cowboy trip into the black
And you can bet before we’re through
Mister, I’ll make a fan
Out of you.

GALADRIEL:
Toss the Ring in Mordor
To the fires within.
Elves and dwarves will aid you
So we’re sure to win.

DOCTOR:
If you need help—any time or place—
You can call the Doctor.

FANBOY:
Who?

DOCTOR:
Come now, I’ll make a fan
Out of you.

TOPH:
Watch Aang become the Avatar
Water and Earth and Fire
Bending air that Twinkle Toes can really fly

HERMIONE:
Come live at a Wizard school
Learning spells with Harry Potter

DANERYS:
When you play the Game of Thrones you win or die…

ALL:
BE A FAN
You must be swift as the League of Justice
BE A FAN
Keep Battlestar on its Earth-bound course
BE A FAN
Obey the heart of the Prime Directive
Mysterious as the Dark Side of the Force

BE A FAN
You must be swift as the League of Justice
BE A FAN
Keep Battlestar on its Earth-bound course
BE A FAN
Obey the heart of the Prime Directive
Mysterious as the Dark Side of the Force
Hoo-ah!

We had a fantastic time at SDCC Masquerade this year. Here is our entry, called “Be a Fan.” We won the Sideshow Favorite company award and the trophy medals for Most Humorous. And more importantly, the crowd got all of the jokes, and generally seemed to love it, which is the best reward!

“For a black cosplayer (not to be racist) she did an amazing job!” the original Tumblr post read. It was later was edited to include “I love her skin tone” after all hell broke loose.

Personally, I’ve always been stuck on those first few words: “for a black cosplayer.” As if the bar was set lower for us, as if we weren’t expected to perform on the same level as white cosplayers.

I lost track of how many times the post was liked, reblogged, linked to other websites — even now, nearly three years after the picture was taken, complete strangers will come up and reference it to me at cons, and it’s even come up in job interviews. My Venus became the unintentional face of the cosplay race debate online, an unwitting example of “Black cosplayers doing it right,” as if 9 times out of 10, black cosplayers were doing it wrong by default.

What kills me is that in person, nobody has the balls to say a word about whether or not they think darker-skinned people should cosplay lighter skinned characters — but online is a completely different animal. Online, I was “Nigger Venus,” and “Sailor Venus Williams” because I am black.

My nose was too wide, lips were too big, I had a “face like a gorilla” and wasn’t suited for such a cute character, because I am black. My wig was too blonde, my wig wasn’t blonde enough, or, my wig was ghetto because I was making it ghetto, by being black and having it on my head.

And furthermore, if I was going to insist on “ruining characters,” I could have at least picked one with black hair so it looked more “natural.” I should have worn blue contacts — but if I had, it would have looked ghetto. Because I am black.

Always reblog my Chaka. She’s the baddest bitch I know and an amazing cosplayer. That she’s had to deal with all this is ridiculous.

"you’re not even that Chinese; you don’t speak the language and you don’t have an accent"

lightspeedsound:

actually, the reason why I don’t speak Chinese or have an accent is because I am, in fact Chinese, and my parents wanted me to speak like a native English speaker, without any of the bullshit countless other Chinese kids faced because of their Chinese accent and the fact that Chinese was their first language. SO fuck you, white asshole: The fact that you CAN speak Chinese and nobody is ever going to question your nationality, your loyalty, or your educational level is a privilege because my parents had to cut me off from that part of my ancestry just so that I could be treated a little bit better by your fucking society.
