Cosplaying it Up
In my last post I mentioned Cosplaying at the con. Cosplaying is a huge part of just about every kind of convention now and one of the best aspects of going to a con is seeing the effort and work participants put into their costumes and the terrific creativity on display.
Everyone is appreciated no matter the skill and everyone is there to enjoy and not judge. it a great atmosphere, especially for new cosplayers. This was my first year in costume to a con like this and I found it to be an amazing experience. I was stopped for pictures with con-goers and other cosplayers. Mad Max and Nux stopped me to ask me how I made some of the material. I got fist bumps from random strangers out of appreciation. And most of my costume was done on the cheap!
Here are some of my favorites from the Con:
Cosplaying is so much fun and so empowering I highly recommend it. Even if you’re an obsessive introvert like me who obsesses about accuracy and details, you’ll be surprised how many people just love that you’re there in costume. No one sees the missing details, trust me! It’s all about fun and for me it was the most enjoyable part of the con.
