why not? I never think skintone should be a problem in those cases, sure he might be prepared for people disaproving, but cosplay is something you do for love to the character, and no one should be able to deny that. Cause someone will always dissaprove of you, I havent got only roses for my cosplays, I often hear things that make me sad or let me down, but then I remember myself of why I do it, and give the shit a bout what other people think, so If your friend want to do Ichigo, I should say tell him to
There is not enough Lady cosplay, so it's nice to see such an amazing one. I think most people think Lady is easy to cosplay, so they do sloppy outfits. Yours is good. Besides, you've got the attitude.
