When I go to cons for cosplaying, I don't necessarily expect many people to know my character, but I still cosplay as that character for the fun of cosplaying. Besides, even if not many people might know my character I'm fine as long as there are some who like to take pictures of me.
That said, my cosplay experience at Kawa kon yesterday was quite an interesting one. Despite that nobody (save for one or two people I met at the con) knew whom I was cosplaying as, many seemed to like my costume and wanted to take pictures with me.
That one lifeboat which keeps a kanmusu afloat
That one party which keeps a touhou hearty
That one warzone you take upon your own
That one big jive that keeps you alive
When the lights go on where you stand upon,
Colors intertwine and it's your time to shine
The mic on the stage and listeners engage
In the great rapport of what we all adore
The march through the town from the doors of Crowne
Come one come all, let's have a merry time y'all!
