Can I just tell you how proud I am of this girl?
It was 3 days away from Comic-Con 2014 and she still didn’t have a costume. So she racked her brain and realized she looks exactly like the most sexist bullshit excuse for combat fatigues ever, Quiet from Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain.
Originally she wasn’t going to do it, unsure if her body was good enough to “pull off” the cosplay. Even though she’s been working out like an animal for the past two years and had lost 25 pounds from the time that I met her, she still didn’t think she was “skinny” enough.
I sat her down and told her, “You look amazing. No one is going to look at you and say, ‘She looks awful’ because you don’t. Do it.”
In a world of over judgmental bullshit, she faced her fears, looked at me and said, “Fuck it.”
AND LOOK AT HOW AWESOME SHE LOOKS. FUCK. IT’S LIKE YOU TOOK HER RIGHT OUT OF THE VIDEO GAME AND PUT HER IN REAL LIFE WRECK IT RALPH STATUS.
