These are several shots of cosplayer June Rivas' recent work attire. The first was ruled by Rivas' boss to be in violation of the dress code due to her "cultural head wrap." Although apparently the cultural head wrap ban has since been removed from the list because it made the dress code sound super racist. The other five outfits? Totally fine.
Yahoo reports that Rivas' employer told her that "wearing her hair in a ponytail or donning a head scarf was unprofessional", despite the unnamed company's dress code simply stating that employee's clothing needed to be "clean and pressed".
The Yahoo story says she has since reported her boss (who is female) to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, though in the meantime has found a workaround: cosplaying to work.
Heck yeah, cosplaying to work. Great way to stick it to the woman! You know I think that boss of yours is probably suffering from a case of what I and other practitioners in the medical field commonly refer to as 'a giant stick up her ass.' If you asked all of us on our lunch break somebody would probably suggest it's a yardstick before my colleague Dr. Stradler insists its a canoe paddle inserted paddle end up while we all sit back and think, "Wow, she went there," and close our eyes to visualize her imagery.
Thanks to Tina, who agrees it's about time employers rebranded Casual Fridays into Cosplay Fridays to boost worker morale and foam swordfights.
