How have I never uploaded photos from this dream cosplay group of mine from 3 years ago?!

The Spice Girls (worn at Dragoncon 2009) are:
Ginger Spice - Yaya (me)
Sporty Spice - Shea Standefer [link]
Posh Spice - Scruffyrebel [link]
Scary Spice - Blikku [link]
Baby Spice - Pixiekitty [link]

I absolutely love my friends who indulged me in this cosplay idea - we did it for fun one night at Dragoncon and it was a hit! Seems everyone got a kick out of seeing the most Iconic girl pop group the 90's produced. Thank you, Darkain, for shooting with us!

My Ginger costume was a Halloween Union Jack flag dress altered to fit, and I sewed sequins all over the lines for extra bling. I already had the glitter red Mary Jane shoes (don't ask me why..) and just sewed a blond weft into my Dawn wig.

I feel like I should preemptively comment on the fact that I am aware that I'm not Caucasian as Ginger should be. Indeed, I am the only one in the photos NOT of the "correct" racial heritage of the people we were cosplaying.
I just want to say for the record: Race shouldn't matter in cosplay. Those of us choosing to cosplay outside our race realize do it because we love the characters and people we dress up as, and cosplay is ultimately an expression of fandom and what you adore. Sure, cosplay has evolved into an artform and a form of entertainment, and a large percentage of viewers evaluate the people in the costumes as much as the quality of the actual costumes themselves. Some even come to expect a certain sense of perfectionism in how their favorite characters are portrayed by cosplayers, which includes the race of the person in the costume. But no matter how much cosplay is appreciated, we shouldn't forget that it's at the core about FUN for everyone, and limitless creativity of individuals. Anyone should be able to dress up as anyone, no matter their gender or heritage. If each cosplayer only dressed as characters within their racial heritage, it would be extremely limiting and kind of wrong. Hope that's something worthy to think about.

That being said - Spice Up Your Life!!

Ah no worries on the whole 'correct racial heritage', having fun is what it's all about. There always be some idiot who feels otherwise. They're a lot like bad weather, they're best left outside. You guys look awesome btw.
