I know I've blathered about this before, but it's really hit me recently (again) how none of my friends (with the exception of one who lives the next state up and who I rarely, if ever, get to see) really enjoy cosplaying. Yeah, they like going to conventions. Yeah, they enjoy seeing the cool costumes and, yeah, they accept and support my addiction. But none of them have any desire to make, create, or really be a part of it. Taber will join in but he's really not into making the costumes, and my other friends would rather buy than try to do it themselves, if they join in at all.
People who have cosplay groups and friends are so lucky and they don't even realize.
