I'm mad cuz the first time I tried this I chug off the picture. Let's try this again! ****** You have no idea how amazing it was to participate in this project! When I saw @americanwomanproject was coming to Atlanta, I immediately threw my hat in the ring. And when I had to pick a location, of course I chose @costumesetc because that place always helps me make my cosplay dreams come true.
I went with a Black power Storm look for this shoot, because being a Black woman in america means fighting. It means struggling. It means surviving against incredible odds that take a horrendous toll on our psyche. None of us are strong by choice. We learn to be battle ready IN battle...and that shit starts young.
So I stand in my power. In my defiance of what america tells me represents this country...cuz that representation, that "normal" is a lie.
Thank you @hunyrocks for allowing me to participate in your project.
If you haven't checked out @americanwomanproject, do it NOW! I'm an ant among giants!
