Let me elaborate on a post I made recently involving one cosplay getting more notes than another.

I’ve been receiving anon hate/harsh criticism for it.

"You should be just happy to get any attention."

"You’re just looking for attention."

"Your post is discouraging to others starting out in cosplay."

There were a few more lines with more vulgar and/or bitter choices of wording, but I’ve already set those on ignore.

My Kevin cosplay is thrifted and the only thing I did was make-up and altered it to my size. Few hours of effort, that’s it.

My Thorin cosplay (second photo) was endless hours/days of sleepless nights. Blisters, bleeding, crying, sweating. Every free moment was working on it. After work, went straight to working on it. Everything is made from scratch (save for the key I wore around my neck.)

For someone who’s been in the cosplay community for nearly twelve years and competed competitively for five, it is heart breaking for me to have a cosplay completely overlooked by another that took so little effort. Yes I am bitter. Yes I am looking for attention, but for a cosplay I poured my heart and soul into.

It’s like, you’re an artist. You draw something that you half traced or nearly copied from some show or something. Then you make something completely from your own mind on your own that’s elaborate and gorgeous. Now, say you post both on tumblr and the one you spent little effort on gets more praise than the latter. It’s a terrible feeling.

"Cecil and Kevin are bonding quite nicely after a recent broadcast event."

OOC: There’s a story behind this. That Cecil is actually a good friend of mine I had lost contact with for some years. It wasn’t for any reason, we both just sort of faded. Well, we recently ran into each other briefly at a previous convention and met up again at this one. We had a blast and I am so glad to know that we can still be epic friends and rekindle out friendship after a few years of no contact.
Night Vale. Reuniting friends all over.

Kevin and Carlos would like to thank everyone who attended the Welcome to Night Vale Listening Panel this past Friday night of San-Japan 7. We hoped you all enjoyed yourselves and hopefully we’ll be able to bring it back again next year. Thanks for tuning in, listeners.

Before I got into WTNV, I had only heard things from friends about it and seemed slightly confused. Was it a horror show? It’s a radio show right? No? Yes? Sort of? I was a bit confused, but amused by the fanart my friends would post on their dash of it.

Then I came across this fanart one day and I was blown away. I ask my friend what the fanart meant and she told me one was of Cecil, the radio host of Night Vale and the other was Kevin of Desert Bluffs. She wouldn’t tell me more, for she didn’t want to spoil anything for me. I knew very small tibits of the show, so I had pictured what the show was about in my own head based off of that fanart and what I assumed about the show.

Anonymous said: I bet you could hide out in Desert Bluffs. I don't think they'll be able to follow you there.

Seems I’m running out of options of places to hide anyways…

Fuck it. I’ll take a chance.

Decided to come to the Bluffs, then?  It’s so good to have You home.

…Second thought. I don’t trust people in fancy suits no more…Bluffs may not be the smartest choice.

Oh yeah, I remember. Back in January, we found Hiram Mcdaniels.
