Hey my Sins, how’s it going?
I have a wee bit of a topic to cover, and that’s how I choose my cosplay costumes. Folks have been requesting me do specific costumes, and I thought I’d address how that goes down.
1. Do I know who they are?
-If I do not know of the character, the chance of me doing it is .69% (because 69 is still funny to me)…
2. Am I passionate about the show/game/movie/etc
-This is where it gets tricky and lengthy in verbage. Even if I’m not entirely passionate/care for the series… a very close friend is pretty much my only means of convincing. For example: “Hey, I’m doing this character, you should do ‘x’ character to match me!”. I love cosplay for many reasons (I won’t go into that now), but a big one is the friends and people I’ve met. If that means I get to hang out with this person more and have an excuse to squee on the inside, knowing that they asked me to hang out with them… sure. I’ll do it. But it really depends on how much time and money I’ll be putting into this, since I know what it is, but am not necessarily in LOVE with whatever I’m cosplaying from.
And that’s the majority of it. I’ll add more if I think of other things to write, but that’s all at the moment. Have a good night folks.
