WHY I LOVE COSPLAYING
Freedom. This aspect always and still does push me to cosplay. You can be whoever you want to be when cosplaying and this was very freeing for me early on when I did not feel liked I belonged in most circles. Expressing myself through cosplay and having the freedom to create what I want has really helped me overcome a lot of life's challenges.
Next time the world tells you no, step onto the convention floor. As a superhero, video game character or meme, someone will admire that YOU chose that cosplay - that YOU are awesome!
