Fan conventions are a time for fun. Plenty of people dress up as their favourite characters and pose for tons of photos with other fans who love the said character. Think of it as being dressed as a sports team mascot and everyone at the stadium wants to take a photo with you, pretty awesome, right? Not to mention, cosplaying allows people to let out their inner creativity.
Tons of people make their own cosplays from scratch or will make a whole living out of it. Don’t believe us? Just check out Instagram. There are tons of cosplayers making a killing as models dressed up as their favourite characters. These cosplayers are even sent wigs, costumes, and makeup all for free in hopes of getting good reviews. It’s a cool industry to get into and one that’s exponentially growing.
Nevertheless, not all cosplayers make a living out of it, some really do just want to have fun. Take Liev Schreiber’s children for example. Schreiber recently took his two sons to San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) but he’s gotten a mixed response from social media users. One of Schreiber’s sons, Sasha, was simply dressed up as a Jedi and people felt no way about that, but his other son, Kai, was dressed as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad.
Overall, fans are pretty upset about it for a variety of reasons. Some people think it’s ridiculous that Schreiber let his son dress up like a female character. Others are upset that he let his son dress up as Harley Quinn who wears a ‘slutty outfit.’ And of course, there are some who aren’t upset at all and actually find Schreiber pretty admirable.
As of now, Schreiber hasn’t said anything on the matter though his fans would love to hear an official statement. In recent years, there has been more talk of letting boys be free to be who they are and dress the way they please. No one knows if Kai just loves Harley Quinn or if there’s something more to the choice, but that’s no one’s business either way.
Schreiber and his ex, Naomi Watts, share custody of their children and are very serious about co-parenting despite splitting up after an 11-year relationship. It’s clear that Kai’s outfit didn’t bother his dad as the two walked around comic-con holding hands without a care in the world.
Liev was at comic-con promoting his new film My Little Pony, which is a modern-day reboot of the classic 1980s cartoon. In it, he plays Storm King opposite Zoe Saldana, Kristin Chenoweth, Sia, and Emily Blunt. Maybe little Kai and Sasha will be dressed up as a character from their dad’s film next year!
