Starfire cosplay by CutiePieSensei

This Starfire cosplay by CutiePieSensei may be the best one we’ve seen on Earth. Or Tamaran.

“I am sorry to disappoint you, but I am stronger than I look.”

If our CutiePieSensei Cosplay Collection wasn’t proof enough, we’re big CutiePieSensei stans here at AiPT. Which is why we had to feature her Starfire cosplay (both fully-suited up and in casual mode), AKA Princess Koriand’r of Teen Titans and Titans fame as soon as we caught wind of her inimitable energy signature:

Let’s talk Titans. I felt compelled to do this makeup test in response to the blatant anti blackness masquerading as “fandom” after the Titans trailer release. I don’t have my full suit done but I really wanted to speak my mind and sorta prove a point. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ You can complain about her wig, complain about her not being orange, or even complain about her powers not being green. I’ve seen all of these complaints which are very fair. But what you not gonna do is sit here and say it’s bad casting because she is a black woman. I’ve seen too many a post, even from other fellow POC, saying that it would’ve looked so much better if she was Latina or White. Basically insinuating that even if she was orange, Anna Diop’s blackness disqualifies her from ever looking good in the role. Now I personally dislike how they have pretty much all of the characters styled (and don’t get me started on Robin’s “f--k batman” comment) but I just wanted to show that Starfire CAN BE A BLACK WOMAN. As a cosplayer, we know that styling is everything. While I had to edit my eyes green due to lack of sclera lenses, the rest is practical, just a wig and body paint. It’s not that hard y’all. Times like these further cements in my mind the reason why we have #blackcosplayerhere and #28daysofblackcosplay. Too many people trying to invalidate others purely based on what race they are smh *steps off soapbox*⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Wig: @babalahair ⠀⠀ Coupon Code ‘CutiePie’ at checkout for 20% off⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #starfire #titans #teentitans #titanscosplay #bodypaint #cosplay #starfirecosplay #closetcosplay #cosplaymakeup #blackcosplayer #blackcosplay ⠀⠀
