The creepy admin who made a whole cosplay community crash and burn
When I was in high school, I joined my one of my state’s cosplay communities. Interestingly enough, I was at the end of my weeaboo phase when I joined, but I still loved my anime (and still do) and wanted to give cosplaying a shot.
The admin of the group was, eccentric, to say the least. He had a near religious obsession with 80’s mecha anime and he tried to push this onto other people as well and would make people donate money to him so he could buy more cosplays. I also found out that he had a “love quest” similar to Chris Chan, but since I was young and stupid at the time, I thought nothing of it.
