Sad and happy?
So people have been sending me a couple articles floating around that I’m featured in. It’s so kind and flattering to know that people think what I’m doing is cool, but I’m not “queen of cosplay” or innovative or even the best at it. Like I’m grateful and happy people like it but also feel guilty that people do? I just started this maybe a year ago? If even that. I don’t want anyone to think that I think I’m hot stuff. I know that my outfits could be WAY better and that there are FAR more talented people doing the same thing that should receive the attention I’m getting and then some. I know many of mine have been simple. Like I feel bad that my rag tag outfits are being shared as opposed to someone that has a completely amazing cosplay that looks way more complex and bad@ss. I just thought it would be cool to do some cosplays of people from our childhood, ya know? Bring some nostalgia to your TL I thought. I didn’t think people would really think much of it.
I also feel uneasy that ppl are getting upset bc they feel ppl would call cultural appropriation if it were someone of a different race. Which you know, maybe they would. It wouldn’t be right and I wouldn’t agree with it if they’re just dressing up as a normal character with nothing to even do or connected with the actual culture and not doing anything offensive. Idk I just feel kind of weird and bad but excited and shocked? Idk I know it’s not that serious, but I still feel uneasy :(
