As well all know, February is probably the best month of the year. Especially in 2018. Black History Month. The long awaited coming of Wakanda and delicious liquid gold that is going be seeping through that screen. BUT IT’S ALSO #28DAYOFBLACKCOSPLAY! I have scrolled, shared and retweeted for the past few days until my fingers have bled, for the love of melanin. I’ve compiled a list of 10+ black cosplayers that you SHOULD be following! <3

If you love the work of the creators below, be sure to give their names a click to find them on social media! Like, follow and subscribe to them. Honestly, cosplay takes so much effort and time and being a POC can make it even more difficult. If your favorite cosplayer or content creator didn’t make my list, go the extra mile. Message them! Tweet them! Let them know how much you appreciate what they do, especially in a month filled with pride and excitement in our skin.

Happy #28daysofcosplay!

Hey there! I'm Francais, otherwise known as Izzy Saeko in the land of the internet. I'm a 25 year old cosplayer, personal stylist and blerd. I love anime and anything Sailor Moon related and I can probably out eat you when it comes to Domino's pizza at 4am. I'm all for POC equality, women's rights and equality in gaming and the growth of women in male-dominated fields. Talk nerdy to me on Twitter! @deadassfactsbby
