CINEMATIC MILES MORALES COSPLAY

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)

Perfect.

love.

The Costume Institute of the African Diaspora presents first major exhibit 



The Costume of African Diaspora (CIAD) presents its biggest exhibit to date with Tartan: Its Journey Through the African Diaspora – uncovers historic tartan pieces that has traveled from Africa, Europe and India.
From CIAD:

Costume Institute of the African Diaspora has been established to advance the study of costume, clothing and textiles from the African Diaspora.
We define the African Diaspora as being where African people and people of African heritage reside in significant numbers and have developed cultural practices and customs.
CIAD aims to promote access to costume history and developments in contemporary fashion. We hope to provide the best and most varied opportunities to understanding and studying every aspect of costume and dress from the African Diaspora.

The project looks at how these cultures adapted, adopted or absorbed this influence to bring significance to fabrics such as madras cloth.
The exhibit took place in London.

Because it is a systematic negation of the other person and a furious determination to deny the other person all attributes of humanity, colonialism forces the people it dominates to ask themselves the question constantly: “In reality, who am I?”
