I did this photo yesterday, yet took it down as people asked not to do the operator symbol, so I have remade the picture without the use of the symbol. The ribbon I’ve attempted to draw is not very good, I’m aware, but I have tried. Here is what I wrote yesterday to explain the picture.
"Here is my picture, half cosplay, saying behind every character there is a creator, behind every story there is an author, behind every fanart there is an artist and behind every cosplay there is an ordinary person. Every fandom gets obsessives, people who can’t wait for the next story, people who love the characters, and unfortunately people who take it all too far. Today it has been reported that two girls attempted to kill their friend to try and summon the Slenderman. This is a perfect example of taking things too far, luckily the little girl who was victim of the girls is in a stable condition and the girls are looking at a lengthy sentence in prison. Unfortunately now everyone thinks creepypasta has bad influence on people, and that is is an occult. It isn’t I’m part of this fandom and I know its not evil. Parents should monitor what their kids do online, and should check in with how their social lives are going, so they can prevent them from doing something this horrendous. They’re just stories. Nothing more. Which is why I did this photo, showing that you can be a part of something and not take it too far. This is how I will express my creativity and reality. Sending love and hope to that poor little girl and her family during this horrible ordeal. It’s creativity not reality"
