Why do people get so bent up out of shape about people “not being the same” as the people they’re cosplaying? No one will ever be the same as the character they’re cosplaying, so let them cosplay who they want and do the best they can with it.
Not like there are many skinny, light-skinned black guys with dreadlocks in fiction anyway. If I had to follow the whole “You have to be the same body type as your character” garbage, I’d never be able to cosplay ANYONE.
Do your best with your cosplay, wear it with pride.
