Poptop has been kind enough to send in photos from Friday night in Garema Place.

In the course of a weird night the cosplay contest collided with reclaim the night.

I leave you, dear reader, to draw your own conclusions.

It’s because she is black.

Granny said :

Well, I didn’t have that right in Los Angeles and I will never forget that.

What’s the story?

Granny 12:06 pm 03 Nov 08

Well, I didn’t have that right in Los Angeles and I will never forget that.

As a woman, I completely agree.

It’s never going to be totally safe for either a man or a woman to be out alone, whatever time of day or night. The main difference is that men don’t get blamed for it if they are assaulted.

Whilst common sense is important, I feel strongly as a woman that I should have the right to walk alone if I choose.

I remember one night walking my dog and this drunk guy swerved right off the road towards my dog to give me a fright. I was really angry and I started yelling at him WTF!

His wife came out of the house and said what’s this all about, and I said I reckoned that as a woman I should have the right to go for an evening walk down my street with my dog if I wanted. She was basically like, hell yeah, get inside, and boy was he in trouble!!

I had no idea what cosplay was until I just read the wikipeadia article (ok, I had a pretty good idea). I love it when weird fetishes reach the status of sub-culture and get their own name.

i always thought that ‘reclaiming’ the night was bit far fetched – when was it last ‘claimed’? has it ever really been safe for women to wander about all the same places with the same blitheness as men?

good sentiment, a linguistic hump for mine for the name…

ah, truly a sign that gone are the days of LJ.

Reclaim the Night was a bit of a surprise, but a pleasant one.

If you’re interested in following Cosplay in Canberra you will need to be a Facebook member and then keep an eye on Cos I Can.
