I think all the people proclaiming how we should only care about how good and well-written a character is and not their gender are full of it. If that’s all they really cared about, they wouldn’t be so bothered by the very idea of another female Assassin protagonist.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will have women, just not a playable one. AC has always had a track record of badass women in the supporting cast (outnumbering the male protagonists, no less). Charlotte Corday is the most famous assassin of the French Revolution, if Ubisoft doesn’t include her (and they’ll have her in game, mark my words), I’ll eat my hat.
Lots of ppl are pissed Thor will now be female yet even more were mad that the next AC has no women, make up your minds!
Did Ubisoft a solid and named the backup dancers. L+R: Jean-François, Arno/Arnaud, Théo, Michel.
Jean-François is married with two daughters, he and his wife were bakers before the Revolution. Théo and Michel are brothers, much higher class than Jean-François.
Fanart imminent jsyk. Don’t care if they’re just palette swaps in the end, dad!Assassins make me obnoxiously happy.
Desmond miles cosplay
Anonymous asked: no, it's a huge detail. why even bother cosplaying the character if you don't want to "try"? it's not even recognizable.
Oh, oh okay, so the whispy facial hair they used in Thor 2 is a bigger detail than the actual costume.
FORGIVE ME, FANDOM, FOR I HAVE SINNED.
Look. Cosplay means different things to different people. Some people act ICly, some don’t. Some wear it for socializing, some wear it for photoshoots. Some buy their costumes, some are detail meticulous, some just like the challenge of making it. If you don’t get at this point that it’s a hobby that you do FOR YOURSELF and for your OWN REASONS, I’m going to need you to back off.
I’m not willing to let 4 months of work be negated over the fact that I don’t feel comfortable in certain makeup. It IS a minute detail the way it was done in the film, people cosplay variants of costumes ALL THE TIME and no one bats an eyelash, and the costume worked FOR ME the way that I wanted it to.
Why bother if I’m not willing to “try?” Forgo one step, and all the other effort is for naught? If I feel good about myself doing it, feel good about the challenge I brought to myself and how I overcame it, THAT’S why I bother. And that’s all that should matter. Hell, that’s all that should matter, had I bought or commissioned the thing instead.
