Hiya um hmm well I love to cosplay but the past few years I have sub-cum to tremors and sporadic involuntary movements as part of a disease I have. I have been chrona from Soul Eater in the past so my spasms look like I am in character by being possessed by black blood. But this year I'd like to do a pretty long flowy dress from cardcaptor sakura. My spasms cause me to fall and accidentally hit people, I don't mean too I have no control. I am weary about my condition and i have great friends at anime expo to support me, physically and emotionally. I do admit I am bit self contentious about my condition. you think it would be wise for me to be in a dress that Icould potentially hurt my self in or even carry a staff?

I get them about 20- 50 times a day. I am weary about my condition and I have great friends at anime expo to support me, physically and emotionally.

Fair warning: This may sound harsh. I don't mean it in that way. Ehem..

Stop. Just stop. Don't you EVER let any kind of condition that you can't help stop you from doing anything. EVER. I've my own issue I have to deal with, granted it's far less severe than yours, but I will NEVER let that stop me from cosplaying any character. Neither should you. I say go for it! Cosplay whatever you please. If someone says ANYTHING at all, that just shows how disgusting of a person they are. Cardcaptor Sakura is a great series to cosplay from, as Sakura herself has a TON of outfits to choose from! In all honesty, I say do it and do it proudly! You have me backing you uo 10000% on this! Go for it and cosplay proud, spasms and all!

Thank you so much! and no you aren't harsh at all. Thank you for your support I'll definitely cosplay her then. I shouldn't let my health get in the way of something I love so thank you. yeah people can be very harsh and judgmental. Yeah its a great series! Yes she has tons of outfits so I am sure I can alter it or change my choice if need be. Thank you so much, seriously thanks *HUGS*

I say go for it. Especially if you have supportive friends with you that understand your condition and can help you out if needed. Just remember to take it easy while your having fun in your beautiful flowing dress.

My mother has MS and she has to be careful because she's prone to seizures. But she doesn't let that stop her from doing what she loves and dragging me along for the ride XD

I recorded a few voice over auditions this evening and used one of my cosplay wig caps as a pop screen. I'll be a monkey's uncle if it didn't get rid of the majority of the plosive sounds. Yay, being poor!

If you have your trusty friends there to help you and support you, I say do it. Have fun, and just do it because you love it. The majority of people in cosplay you'll encounter are good folks who will appreciate you because of the work and love you put into your outfit.

Found the perfect pattern for my newest costume idea, and now to order some swatches... and to figure out how much of each fabric I need (I'm splitting the dress pattern from one colour as pictured, into four colours) I guess I have to do a quick mockup first. I think I can only order in whole metres from where I'm planning to get the fabric from, but I sure don't want to not have enough. And I need chiffon swatches. And organza, or tulle? So much to decide on...

Made some progress with the Hylian Shield last night - just need to trim some of the edges since the pieces didn't line up exactly (probably due to the paint warping the foam core). Next up will be building the scabbard (the foam Master Sword was a purchased item). Hopefully I'll be able to finish it next weekend, as long as I work on it bit by bit each night after I get home from work.


Hopefully CosCom can figure out what happened with the wig I pre-ordered back in mid-January. It may have been lost in the shuffle due to the supplier being closed for Chinese New Year. Glad I ordered super early just in case things like this happened.

Something else that's been on my mind lately is the aspect of crossplaying. One of my "Possible Cosplays" is a VERY well known character that would typically fall into this category, but the character is in fact MALE. That being said, should this be a thing that I should attempt? Crossplaying, that is. I'm pretty thin, so I could probably get away with some characters, but I'm not sure if I should even bother.

Also, some outfits I wear require the wearing of shorts or short sleeves. Normally I wouldn't care, but I've scarring on my body(let's just say people can get really nasty when you don't conform to what they see as normal...), and I'm not sure how to hide it aside from wearing black underarmor. I don't mind wearing the stuff, as shown in a few of my cosplay already during Otakon. Yeah, I'm crazy enough to wear underarmor in Baltimore City mid July heat. I'm Awesome! That said, I'm not sure how else to hide the scarring aside from that, and that also plays into the aspect of me wondering about crossplaying. Would this even look right?

Got my Funtom Rabbit yesterday, still need to get off my butt and take some pictures with it.

That being said, I won't know my plans for Momocon until the last minute It totally slipped our minds to let grandma come and look at Ririchiyo Friday, so she'll have to do it Monday, and I'm not really sure if she'll have it done by Friday. I really don't want to stress her, or me, out by trying to rush at the last minute, so I'm considering throwing my old Ciel cosplay on for another spin if I can. (My parents might get angry at that, but I'll find some time to wear her. After all, I bought it with my money so it is technically my possession, and I can choose to do what I want to do with it.)

...I also love-hate TERA's designs. I love the high elf male cloth armor to death and would love to cosplay it, but damn if I'll have the body (or budget) to fit that any time soon. The only thing I could possibly cosplay is the Elin, and then the cloth armors at that since the leather and heavy are all so intricate or otherwise odd. Ughafgagfdsf
