No problem! Thank you all for sending these, and I hope you don’t mind that I meshed them together. Enjoy!
Note: I’ll be writing this in second person if that’s all right!
Akira would hold you really close and gently trace circles on your back.
He’d whisper all of the things he loves about you in between kissing your forehead.
In addition, he’ll express that he wants to remain by your side and help you find your confidence because he wants you to realize how incredible you truly are.
Akira will cuddle you in a blanket for the rest of the day, kissing the back of your head as he wraps his arms around you while you two watch TV and slowly drift to sleep.
It breaks Ryuji’s heart to see you cry, so he’ll hug you into his warmth and caress the back of your head with his hand.
He’ll frequently whisper “it’s okay, let it out” and “I’m here”.
Then he’ll retract a bit to look you in the eye as he wipes your tears with his thumbs, reiterating how special you are.
Once you’ve calmed down, he’ll shower you in numerous kisses to make you laugh and snuggle on with you.
Ryuji won’t leave your side for the rest of the day unless he’s going to get hot chocolate or snacks for you.
Ann would definitely hug you, and the softness of her hair is actually quite comforting.
She’s sorry that you feel this way, and she’ll tell you that you don’t need to love your flaws right away; recognizing and understanding them is the first step.
She’ll suggest doing some at-home activities such as baking to prevent you from dwelling, since it will do more harm than good, and sweets are known for making people happy; although, she might make you something else if you don’t like sweets.
Ann will cheer you up by simply talking you as she embraces you, reminiscing on all the wonderful memories you’ve made together.
She comments that the best memories involve the most wonderful people, like you.
Yusuke would hold your hands and kiss the backs of them as he listens to you.
On one hand, he’s glad you’re being open with your feelings, but on the hand, he doesn’t understand why you feel this way about yourself; you’re absolutely enchanting in his eyes, so what’s not to love?
He’ll trace your skin with his fingertips because he knows it soothes you, and he’ll tell you that even the most famous works of art have flaws, yet they’re still loved and considered magnificent to this day.
Yusuke’s so genuine with his consolations and compliments that it’s impossible to feel sad anymore, but if you still do, he’ll have you sit in his lap as he wraps his lithe arms around you, allowing you a first-hand view as he sketches his own rendition of your beauty.
It’s one of his most breathtaking illustrations.
Makoto will brush your hair out of your face and brush your cheeks with her fingertips.
She can certainly empathize with how you feel, and she tell you that it’s all right to feel sad or insecure every once in a while.
She’ll use the diamond analogy, saying that even diamonds go through a lot of pressure before they can truly shine.
Moreover, she’ll confirm that she’ll be there for you; even when the stress feels like it’s crushing you, she’ll be there cheering for you as you overcome it.
Makoto will make you a batch of warm, refreshing miso soup and spontaneously kiss you or tell you she loves you throughout the day.
Futaba easily sympathizes with you, and she’ll hug you as she tells you it’s okay.
Her hugs are so cathartic and inviting, so it helps you calm down a little.
She knows that she’s not the best with words, but she’ll try to encourage you anyway by listing all the best things about you.
She’ll definitely lend an ear if just need someone to talk to, and her attention doesn’t waver once.
Additionally she’ll either try to make you laugh by doing silly impressions of her friends, or she’ll watch your favorite show / movie with you as she rakes her fingers through your hair.
Haru will ask you what’s wrong and listen to you attentively as she holds your hands, gently caressing them with her thumbs.
She’s slightly surprised that you feel that way about yourself since you’re so full of love and warmth, but she understands how you feel.
She’ll hold your face with her soft hands and kiss your forehead, stating that only the most remarkable people are able to recognize and face their faults.
Furthermore, she’ll remind you that you’re loved dearly in spite of your insecurities, and she’ll be there if you ever need to talk, or if you simply need a hug.
here are a few of the awesome @officialskullgirls and @indivisiblerpg cosplayers I saw at AX this year! there were so many others that I didn’t get to catch on camera but they were all so great!!! btw if anyone knows the cosplayers pictured please let me know!
Got my “Divas” shirt from @eightysixedclothing and have spammed it just about everywhere on the internet- except tumblr! So I had to do what was necessary.
I like supporting unique brands, and Eighty Sixed has an awesome collection of licensed gaming merchandise from series like Skullgirls, Street Fighter, and many others. I highly recommend their products!
I always forget to get pictures of my own cosplay, so I had a friend take a couple pictures of me before the con was over (if you saw me and took pics, please feel free to tag me or message me I want to see them!!)
I love cosplaying Parasoul so much. The little sight on my gun broke off, shhhh.
