I don’t really post cosplay here, but I made an exception since I heard about Monty Oum. It breaks my heart. I’ve always been a Roosterteeth fan, but about two years ago, my best friend Nancy showed me the amazing series that is RWBY. We planned to cosplay Weiss and Ruby together, then Yang and Blake. However, before we could even start our cosplays, Nancy passed away and I was left feeling alone in the world. I missed her more than words can say and I still do. For a while, anything RWBY related made me sob. I couldn’t even fathom the fandom. Then one day, I was scrolling through some messages Nancy sent me on my phone. I don’t remember the exact words, but it was something along the lines of “I can’t wait to do White Rose together! You’re going to be the cutest Weiss ever!” And I knew I still had to do it. I had to cosplay Weiss for her, no matter what. So I did. This is for her and now, this is for Monty.
I send out all my prayers and wishes to you, Monty, because you were there for me when I was at my lowest point, and now, I want to do the same. I want everyone to know how much Monty means to me. How much RWBY means to me.
Get well soon! Don’t worry about anything. Take it easy. No rush to get back into anything because in the end, there’s nothing more important than your health.
