Sad fact that this cosplay of mine…
Gets more likes and attention than this cosplay of mine…
((I have received the approval for my Welcome to Night Vale Listening Party at San-Japan Samurai 7 this year. Tentatively, it’ll be late night Friday, but time/date may be due to change.
I’ll be hosting this in complete Kevin cosplay and I invite all attending San-Japan to join other fans in a safe environment of listening to some Night Vale episodes with other fans. There will be quick quizzes at the start of the panel with WTNV related prizes as well.
There are a few rules when attending this panel.
- Keep talk to a minimum and be respectful to those trying to enjoy listening to the show.
- No loud talking/shouting.
- NO ARGUING/HEATED DEBATING (As in, no arguing about head canons and other such things. If you want to debate about such things, take it outside of the panel room.)
- If someone is making you feel uncomfortable, come to me or a con staffer just outside the room. We will take care of it for you.
- Sit back, relax, and enjoy some good old WTNV.
Please message me if you have any questions.))
do you ever see someone cosplaying a character you’re about to cosplay to a con but they look 10x hotter and you just
This actually gives me serious anxiety about cosplay, especially since I have very poor view of myself bodily wise. I actually had instances where I made every bit of a cosplay, did some prosthetics, latex stuff, made the weapons out of wood, sewn wigs together. All of that and I was proud and took it to a convention. Someone else, cosplaying the same character who was thinner and more attractive in my opinion was getting all the attention all the photos taken and no one ever even said anything to me once.
Second instance I was actually cosplaying a character I love and other people cosplay them too. I was comfortable because I just love being the character, but then some con goer came up to me. For some reason, they started to talk about someone else there who was wearing the same cosplay saying how much better that person’s cosplay of the character is than everyone else’s. This made me leave and cry for a long time in my hotel room.
To me, it seems cosplay is turning into “If you don’t meet these standards another person has set, then you’ll be ignored or put down.” It’s gotten so bad that I practically beg a number of friends or my beautiful sister to let me make cosplays for them. So then, my craft can finally be appreciated. Even if one day it turns into me never wearing my own creations ever again.
I’ve literally bleed for cosplay, cried for cosplay, and starved for cosplay. It’s getting harder and harder for me to stay in cosplay when you feel ignored for ten years of it.
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.
