Peoples stance on blackface confuses me. If its for halloween, but still considered a cosplay is it a problem? Because this is kinda the same thing but with care put into the costume for a contest. She painted her whole body brown to match the tone of the character. Some people have done the same i'd imagine without malicious intent(obviously there are those that do do it in malicious intent, not excusing that) and it comes off totally different to people. This just comes off as a "play it safe" situation.
