Ever since I can remember I have always dressed up as characters from movies I had watched or books I had read. When I was much smaller I would go for days being in character and would have the greatest times pretending. As I became older I had to keep that part of me a secret because no one around me could understand it.
I had always wished there to be groups of ppl that dressed up into characters and performed skits and stuff together. About 6 months ago I was talking to someone about how I wished that, (I don't remember who) and they mentioned this word cosplay. After that I found that there are tons of anime and comic conventions in my area, and tons of ppl who do exactly what I thought was just a weird thing I did!
I am going to my first convention next year and am working on a cosplay! I am looking forward to creating, expressing, and learning in this where I thought I was alone I actually have a whole community here that is in this love with me! Please take care of me
