Today, the AC community is ashamed of some people's behaviour. Not only this people created an account today obviously to comment on Vela's pictures, but she also impersonating Alsoome, the native multiplayer from AC3 (see the screenshot for more :p)
Here is the person :iconacalsoomse:

I don't know why, but since AC3 we got an increase of trolls, even on sites like DeviantArt, and it will poison our community for sure, if it's not already the case with the "racist" accusations RBF had to deal with some months ago.

We all have our opinions on costumes, especially when you love a character, but here, creating an account to directly provoke someone is a serious matter (like short, skinny and other shit like this on youtube/fb in my case).

Marvellous screenshot : fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net…

Is that really what we want to show to other people ? The games extols liberty, freedom, free will, and we cosplayers, who do costumes, have to go under trolls who call themselves "fans" because we don't fit their eyes and they want "justice" done for the sake of the original character ? (That's also one of the reasons I have not uploaded the AC3 E3 trailer in costume yet).

Are we really going in a direction where we will soon see "extreme" groups pop up on facebook like the famous "ONLY ASIANS CAN COSPLAY" ?

I have seen many comments (even on my work) saying "you disrespect the creed by doing that shit". I really wish those people could think a bit after these words from Alta´r :

"Men must be free to do what they believe. It is not our right to punish one for thinking what they do, no matter how much we disagree!"

The words of Altair has never rung more true. It is sad that such an easy going fandom such as the AC one has fallen so. This seems so like the hate that Orochimarisu got for her AMAZING Yusuf costume. So many amazing people put down by trolls. Cosplay is turning into a bloodsport.

she created another account just to comment again, because I blocked her, and she pretends it's not the same person. This girl have a serious problem, not to mention her low RP references.

i notice people who say the most horrible things about cosplay i general dont even cosplay. they dont understand the time and effort that goes into others costumes. In reality their bitter and jealous and they want the world to know.

... Are you serious?.. I mean... "I have seen many comments (even on my work) saying "you disrespect the creed by doing that shit"" ...What the... Seriously? =_='' So. There is:
1. Personally, I think you're the one of the most awesome AC cosplayers. Such words as "you disrespect the creed..." should mean nothing to you.
2. In my opinion, the one who "disrespect the creed" are...women, who make "slut version of Alta´r/Ezio/Connor".. Just no. Did Assassins were like b*tches? But this is only my opinion.
3. I can't wait for another photo/film you'll make.

It inst just a problem with the fandom of AC, but with the cosplay community as a whole.

Some of my friends had trolls comment on their cosplay as well: she is too light skinned to do Korra, she is too fat ( and believe me, my friend is not fat at all, she is rather athletic!) that sort of things. I had one or two bad comments myself on 1 Riku picture.

It is a shame really!


I really hope to see your ACIII trailer! :D
