In a post written in Portuguese, she explained, “A very annoying situation happened this weekend. I tried to board at Navegantes airport dressed as Rebecca’s Cosplay for an event. I already knew that I could be late, so I was dressed so as not to waste time and could go straight to my room. But I was told to go home and change clothes because the one I was wearing was not ’appropriate’.” She expressed her disappointment over the unexpected turn of events.
Kine-Chan’s experience at Navegantes Airport sparked varied reactions from her followers on Instagram. While some sided with the airline’s decision, many showed sympathy towards the cosplayer.
