Hey there its Ash! If your new I am a pretty well respected around our CL Community. Its been a good while since I have posted here for everyone. If we have yet to meet and your only a year or two old to ClaireLovers I would love a "Hi" and "My name is" Intro from each of you. I am into meeting fellow Claire lovers.
Aside from that I recently started to stumble across some saddening news concerning Claire Cosplayers at eachothers throats due to fandom pinning them against one another.
Such comments like" Another thing,
name, this girl is age years old (OMG so old messing up with younger girls). Go to her twitter and you’ll see a lot of bullshit against a lot of cosplayers of Claire cause she has too much issues with herself cause she wants to be the only Claire in the whole world (is too damn funny XD)"
Or "Some cosplayers have badly cropped Claire pics with boring backgrounds and poses The most stupid and yet They are super popular"
Or "This person is the actual Claire Redfield and that's all you bunch of jealous psychos"
I do not care who started this but it has to stop. Exposing such drama doesn't make you the better person and this is just ugly behavior. If you have a problem with eachother lets please be more mature than high school locker room drama and address this issue as adults. Even if your not an adult (18 or younger for USA).
This kind of Gossip will do the following damage.
- Associates Claire fans with a nasty reputation.(Much like the console war)
- Makes future Claire cosplayers self conscious and maybe turn them away from it completely.
- People will Associate Claire with this ugly fan base.
- Ruin our intentions.
Let us be reminded that we cosplay Claire not to "be" Claire but to support her. Claire is Claire. There will never be a "real" Claire. Even Allyson herself just plays her voice. Thats the beauty of loving this fictional character. She can not disappoint or fail to please us.
We have some awesome Claire Lovers out there. Fat/thin /Black/white/Asian/short/tall/pot a dots....You can be a beautiful Claire. Cosplay her without judgment. Try on that awesome vest and become her for the day but remember Claire is Claire.
So let Claire Lovers be the first to Apologize to the community. We are sorry for this fire, if we had put any twigs into this flame, we are sincerely regretful.
If you agree with me please copy and paste this to your Tumblr and DA journals and show support for our move to START THE LOVE.
Because I strongly believe we can stop this before it starts.
So yeah, why not sharing all our love for Claire?
