Thoughts about cosplay

Being bored at home and left to wonder on about cosplay makes me think.
A lot of the time, I focus on what people will think of me in my cosplay, or how many people are going to comment this page. But that isn't the right mindset.

Dressing up is for fun! It's a hobby that brings people together and unites them through their guilty pleasure: Cosplay.

Instead of constantly checking deviantart to see how many pageviews we have gained from 5 seconds ago, we should be using that time to cherish the relationship we have with our friends, and how lucky we are to have friends that are happy to cosplay with us! :>
Before we get started, I should let you know that we all update our tumblrs/facebook/youtube MUCH more frequently than this journal (you'll find a lot of cosplay shenanigans/makeup tests/WIPs/general cosplay things there if you're interested). ALSO PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR YOUTUBE. We have a lot of cool videos we recently uploaded on there, including Kitt's Legend of Korra Bending Prop Tutorial, which has been super highly requested.

Individual Tumblrs:


We haven't updated our journal at all with con reports, so we figured we'd upload some bloopers and random pictures from our 2013 cons + SacAnime Winter 2014!

We met a lot of interesting characters:

We even saw some old friends and made new ones:

We had so many serious photos uploaded here, so we thought it best to bring balance to our page (;
Congrats if you made it this far!

Excellent gallery. I love the idea of a collective of artists and cosplayers working together to produce something greater than the sum of its parts.

It's amazing that you guys/gals get to go to so many cons. I've only been able to attend one and it was an absolute blast for me.

It used to be the same way for us! For a long time, we only consistently attended Fanime altogether. We've only started going to new cons this past year, actually! (well, last year)
So, I guess it's just one of those things that might take time (and lots of planning!)

Going to DragonCon last year was also pretty expensive for me. That is the major issue. I work as a rafting guide on a small whitewater river for 8 months so I usually have some free time for four, just not the funds to do much. It is a small issue as I love my life. I'm going to try and plan/make some others in the future.
