It’s Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, and at elope, we condemn bullying in all forms.
Diversity is at the core of the elope spirit. We embrace being different than the norm, and use costuming to allow our creativity to shine. translate Bullying in the costume and cosplay worlds is increasing, and can sometimes have subtle, yet damaging, manifestations.
Bullying takes many forms such as verbal, cyber, physical, or exclusion. People often resort to bullying as a way to cope with things that they don’t understand. Too often, these individuals have been victims of abuse themselves, and are acting out in the same way they were mistreated. It is important to stand up against bullying whether we are a witness or a victim.
Be different. Be kind.
Let’s stick together to have compassion for those who lash out, and work to create a culture in which bullying is transformed into the fun and play of costuming and self-expression.
