Sorry if I'm being stupid
Okay, first things first:
Never ever, EVER
base your want to cosplay someone from how it's responded to by people on Facebook
. No one liking it shouldn't even matter to you.
Facebook is the absolute worst thing to try and base your want to do something on, it's a garbage social media platform!
There have been many posts like yours in the past and everyone's response is always the same:
Stop caring about what people "like" on social media or whether or not your post got more than 5 like's on Instagram. Cosplay and work on stuff because you want to, not because it's what everyone wants you to do.
You're not being "stupid" but you're being painfully impressionable by things that you've no need to care about. If you base everything you do on whether or not people on Facebook like something or even care, you're not going to do much with your hobby.
Cosplay because you want to, not because everyone on your social media feed is drooling over it.
You not having the "confidence to cosplay your favorite character" is no one's issue but your own and you've got to get over that hump yourself and just do it.
I hope you get over your personal speed bumps here and cosplay whomever it is that you're wanting to!
Good luck! <3
