These are a few of my cosplays that I’ve done through the years. I felt I should make this post because of all the negativity that has been surrounding the Homestuck fandom and cosplayers in general due to posts made by Whatevachild.
Cosplay is a hobby. Whether you consider yourself good, bad, or somewhere in between, we do it because it’s fun. It’s something that gives nerds and those alike a reason to come together in a form of artistic expression and admiration for a character or series. Nobody starts off being good at cosplay. Nobody. I technically don’t even have pictures of my first cosplay due to a night filled with rage quitting, which everyone goes through.
But please, please, please don’t let yourself get discouraged by those around you who try to bring you down, even yourself. Cosplay is a progression. You learn new things all the time and discover whether or not they work for you. Even if you feel your cosplay isn’t up to par with another one that you’ve seen, it is a landmark for you.
You cosplay for yourself, and no one else. Make the best of it, enjoy what you are doing, and be proud of your progress. <3
