Probably in one of the better possible ways.

So [ profile] ardaniel mentioned to me about one of the latest "OMG women are getting cooties in my fandom" explosions, and Scalzi commented on it today, and now I'm pondering that some time in the future I might actually go to cons where cosplay happens once more. (I mean, it's been an age since I visited [ profile] erispope and we used to do Dragon*Con.)

And so, in honor of all the misogynistic twitbrains who are deeply disturbed by those sexy sexy womens in their revealing costumes, I have a desire ...

... to cosplay a topless woman who wears a lot of jewelry.

By which I mean...

Pyanfar Chanur.

I know nothing of this book, but support this action.

(Also, should I know something of this book?)

"Opaque" isn't quite the right word. I'm quite capable of getting meaning from it; it's just that doing so is a joyless slog. She has for me the opposite of what Jo calls "I-want-to-read-itosity".

I have to admit that I haven't tried The Pride of Chanur specifically.

I support this idea and would love to see pictures. :D

Expensive, lots of trouble, made entirely of awesome? Sounds like good cosplay to me!

I love Pyanfar and all her crew SO MUCH. That would be an awesome cosplay. ^_^

I wish to subscribe to this newsletter, should it ever get published.

I didn't much care for the Chanur series, but I love the idea. I could also see going as a Caliban-rider, and dropping all stones if anyone brought up the topic. ;)

I realized recently that both the costumes I've considered doing in the next year for conventions are full body leather catsuits. Some combination of modesty, armor, and I-will-kill-you-if-you-look-at-me. Only one of them is *actually* covered in spikes... but if I do DragonCon again (as I've been meaning to for years), I am so going as Scarab.
