One of the nicest compliments I received was Alpha telling me, awestruck, that I looked like a professional cosplayer.
And like. I laughed a lite and told her I actually am! (not as impressive as it sounds), so no matter how I look, I look like one, since yknow I am, but aaAHHHHH no one has ever said anything like that to me before?? ;U; ♡♡♡♡
She also said I looked handsome as Adachi and I was like OH SHIT NO MY COSPLAY IS BAD THIS CHARACTER IS SUPPOSED TO BE UGLY lol. I never feel like doing all my makeup and contouring for Adachi bc I only ever cosplay him to midnight shoots tho. I did spend $100 on a replica of his revolver, though. Go figure.
I’ve legit stopped total strangers cosplaying from Hell If I Know to say something about their makeup or construction or just that they look good and it’s not often I hear things like that bc I tend to cosplay very Boring things these days that don’t get a lot of attention but it was just!! Really nice! To hear! And it was right after I spent a while on my makeup so yknow it wasn’t an empty generic you-look-nice compliment it was so specific and sincere and it made me so happy thank u Alpha
