Scooby-Doo On Zombie Island (1998)
"We wanted a curse on the pirates. To destroy them as we destroyed our island. Our wish was granted. We became cat creatures and destroyed the pirates! Only afterwards did we discover that invoking the Cat God’s power had cursed us as well."
Guh, flawless. Non-Westernised interpretations of the steampunk genre FTW.

I’m cutting off my hair, and going 100% natural in December / New Years. If you don’t know what natural is, it’s basically where you stop perming your hair, and let your original hair texture grow out.
My mom hated the idea at first of me going natural (back in January) but now, she doesn’t…
Don’t worry if people don’t like your natural hair. The belief that it will look unattractive or less feminine comes from years of euro centric beauty standards being forced on ethic people. It also comes from a lot of other stuff two but the easiest way to put it is generations of brainwashing. Though I am a bit biased since I was only not natural for like a month or two when I was little. I’m sure you will look great no matter what you do with your hair and no matter what length it is! Plus your hair will be healthy too from a break from chemicals.

I think that Renaissance festivals, as one of the most pervasive ways Medieval and Renaissance European culture is enjoyed today, can be at the leading edge of changing our perceptions of racial homogeneity during that time.
I know far too many people of color who’ve been harassed for participating, or told they “couldn’t” for one reason or another.
I think more than anything, the “historical accuracy” argument harms here in a way that impacts a lot of history and fantasy fans.
Thank you for sharing this information with the people you work with, in hopes of creating a more supportive and inclusive environment for the current generation of Medieval/Renaissance fans and cosplayers.
This definitely needed to be addressed. Some people’s inner bigot comes out at Faires, Conventions, etc. and it can be disheartening.
I have been a part of a Renaissance Fair group for about 6 years now
I just came back from one today and let me tell you
There was a group of kids walking through the fair on the first day, a good number of them were Black. They all stopped and stared and me when they saw me standing there in a corset and peasant skirt.
They stopped and stared and whispered “is she a princess?” even though I was wearing simple clothing and not anything close to nobility garb, And they smiled and took pictures and were so excited to see me because I finally gave them a glimpse of themselves in a time period that they’ve been told we don’t exist in.
Because there are no depictions of Black people in Medieval times and Renaissance times that are easily accessible.
The last time I saw a Black person in a Medieval setting on television was back when “Mystik Knights of Tyr Na Nog” was still on Fox Kids.
This shit is so important.
haha man. I remember the one and only time i broke out my Moorish alchemist persona at the NY Ren Faire and somebody straight up asked me if I was a slave
why i only ever do pirates and noblewomen anymore
I go to the local Faire in Tudor noblewoman’s garb complete with jeweled French Hood, brooches, jeweled girdle and farthingale hoop.
Here’s a pic of me in some of my garb:
And yes, I get looks. I even got one White dude who asked if there were Black folks in the 1500s. I asked him, “Do you mean in England or on the planet?” He replied “Both.” I gave him a “you canNOT be serious look and said, “Yes.” “Yes, to which one?” “BOTH!” But mostly, I get folks thinking I work there (I don’t. I’m a playtron) and folks requesting pictures. When I first started dressing up, I’m sure I was the weird Black chick dressing in Ren clothes. Now, I’m the chick with the awesome garb.
Those are AMAZING costumes.
