Ask me anything   Hallo! I write sometimes, and make some art, and spend way too much time daydreaming about fannish nonsense. This is stuff I like.

I believed this would be beneficial for people researching for school papers, in college, for writing, and so on. This guide is mainly directed towards people who can access a College or University’s library systems because that is what I am most familiar with. However, this should help other people in a few places. 

The basic steps of research are:

  • choose a topic
  • narrow your focus within that topic
  • choose your thesis (if your thesis was not given as part of your assignment)

When you have a subject to research, then you can begin.

The above images describe how to run an efficient google search, and how to read Library of Congress system call numbers. When attempting to find a book within a research or university library in the United States, knowing the general set-up of the LOC system is invaluable.

When in doubt: Ask a Librarian. Having worked within a Library’s special collections & archives, I’ve both helped people find some pretty obscure things, and asked other librarians for help on equally obscure research. Librarians are trained to be able to help people research, find, and retrieve information. Their degrees are library and information sciences — and many academic librarians are specialized. They are familiar with things you may not be — finding things on microfilm, or special collections works, finding obscure keywords, running a variety of database searches, etc. 

If something cannot be found through your institution’s library, check the ILL (Interlibrary Loan - info here)

This is an incomplete guide, but a nice starting point.

"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

I really like you C:

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.
