Forced to stay at home due to coronavirus concerns, people at home are finding fresh and creative ways to spend their time. While it can be tempting to lounge around all day in one's most comfortable clothes, making an effort into one's appearance — despite having nowhere to go — can make all the difference in the world. Cosplayers, however, always go just that extra mile to look incredible, even while stuck at home under quarantine.

Recently, the #DontRushChallenge has been making the rounds on Twitter, featuring women of color transforming themselves while using creative edits to appear to be passing objects around to each other. The message seems to be that being forced to stay at home is no reason not to glam it up, every once in a while. 

Cosplayer AllieCat has shared a video featuring several cosplayers taking part in the challenge, as they pass a transformative air brush back and forth between each other, using it to transform from their at-home looks to their more glamorous selves. The video features cosplays of Moxxi from the 'Borderlands' franchise, Princess Jasmine from 'Aladdin,' Sailor Moon and many others. It's a three-part video, set to Doja Cat's 'Boss B*tch,' posted with an important reminder from AllieCat "We come in all shades of Brown, all shapes and sizes! Another #DontRushChallenege cosplay edition." You can watch the video here.

The video features cosplayers Hey Jay, Krissy Victory, CutiePieSensei, baby bee, Phillicia Deanell and others, with a full list in order of appearance at the bottom of the threat. The video has already accumulated over 20,000 views at the time of publishing this article. 

The #DontRushChallenge reportedly started on March 22, in a video shared by Lase Asolo. "Basically I had called my friends, and I was like, 'Hey, there’s this challenge I see going around. Is this something you’d want to do?'" Raji told BuzzFeed News, and the trend has caught on. There have been various spins on the challenge, such as the black women military edition, the "Grandpa Edition", and a black woman in STEM edition. Keep an eye on the hashtag for some of the most creative, fun videos to come out of the coronavirus' necessary social distancing!
