Narcisse did write a wonderful journals about her opinion on cosplay it is aslo why I write this one.
Why do I cosplay?
My reason is that I get to do a awesome character I really like and make the clothing and show my appreciation for them. Also meet new people and become their friends and have a really good time.
Also put myself in uncomfortable position and try to grow as a person and get out to do things. I don’t do ting outside my comfort zone really.
Even if I feel like most of the time when I am on a con like a bitch and grumpy and just darn annoying that my feeling on how I am at a con. Not good thing to annoying you self like that really. And no one seem to see this side of me just me. And if you do see this side, don’t take any of that personal I am a idiot most of the time say stuff before I think. And I am sorry if I have ever hurt you in any way. I really hate that part of me.
Also I may be jealous, yes right just darn jealous of you and you awesome cosplay
What I don’t like about it?
Well the thing that call trash talking. It seem to be everywhere, and to be honest I never seen it or hear it myself but I know it is there. Maybe I live in my own bubble and never notes it or I just don´t care.
The ting is for me cosplay it about to have fun it do not matter what sex, skin color or weight or height you are, you can cosplay anyone you want.
You should do anyone you like if you are comfortable in that costumes do it. Also it dose not matter to me if you buy the costume, and most of the time I say to some do it. Is not cheaper to make them you self really is not. But you may get out of other feelings for making one you self and you are proud when you have sewn it, even if it turn not out to be the way you want.
Someone see the part you don´t in the cosplay that they like. I have many cospaly I have make that I feel like I could just burn them up and I don´t know what. But someone always seem to like them any way.
Do as you wish is only thing I will say cosplay who every you want and don let anyone get in you way. But also be a were that there are people that feel otherwise but don’t listen to them really don´t.
I am far away from being a good cosplayer yes I have got some prizes in competition but still that are so many good cosplayer out there. I have seen them those who think outside of the box create amazing thing out of nothing and I am just speechless and some may say they are bad but really they are not.
Cosplay is about having fun and a good time find new friends that like the same anime comic manga as you do. Not about a darn competition that they are not in it. Don´t say anything bad at all if you dont have anything nice to say, keep it to you self so no one get hurts.
I hope this trash talking I hear so much about stop at ones I get too me to see other getting hurt in something that is a part of their life and as manny see them as their home.
But keep that in mind you are amazing in every way and never forget that every, and cosplay is for everyone.
I am so sorry for the bad english and that stuff.
