carolinesavictim asked: Ms Simone, can I ask what you think about able-bodied people using wheelchairs in their cosplay? I really badly want to cosplay Oracle one day, but I don't know if using a wheelchair would be considered offensive or not, (because I don't actually need it.) Thoughts?
Well, I’ve seen this a lot, obviously, with Oracle. But I confess I don’t have an answer. I THINK most people would be fine with it, cosplay is fantasy, right?
But I may be wrong, I have no authority whatsoever to answer.
Can we hear from PWD on this, maybe? Is it cool for able-bodied cosplayers to play characters with disabilities, in your opinion?
I’ve not seen anyone complain but that certainly doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.
