Anonymous asked: Nina Davuluri is a huge nerd (as she's said in interviews and such), but that photo of her is a really terrible fake. I keep seeing that post going around and people are freaking out that she cosplays but as far as I can tell she never has.

Well, what do you know - you’re right, Anon. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. We like to be factual, if we can. After your message, I did a little searching and found this image, which seems to serve as the basis for the manipulated one:

But clearly, there is a reason lots of people are excited about that ‘shopped photo going around: a high profile WOC dressing up in a geeky costume? Yes please! More of that. Maybe she’ll actually cosplay Star Wars for real!
