Is black face
If you REALLY think about it. Someone putting the time and effort into using makeup to appear a proper tanned shows a lot of respect to the character and the race.
These people realize that getting a ‘fake-tan’ done at the average salon can look REALLY BAD (see: oompa-loompa) (why dont we get up in arms about this too?? if anything BAD fake-tans are FAR more offensive than what these girls have done)
Also actually tanning for a character? Really bad for the skin.
I’ve never seen any darker skinned people get called out for using foundation to make themselves lighter for a cosplay. (maybe it happens but I dont see it?) Why harass those of lighter skin tones?
These people possibly spend an hour just making sure their foundation is right. They put the utmost respect in the the skin tone so I give them mine.
On another point: sure they don’t NEED to use the foundation to make themselves the right skin tone but if they want to be more ‘accurate’ let them.
Just please stop harassing these poor people and calling them racists when they’re very far from it.
TL;DR USING A DARKER FOUNDATION TO BE THE RIGHT SKIN TONE FOR A COSTUME IS NOT RACIST OR BLACK FACE. IT’S FAKE TANNING. SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE HAVE DONE FOR YEARS NOW.
