Cosplay is for fun. It’s a misunderstood hobby with a good and bad side. If everything is going good in your cosplay, keep it up just don’t lose your head in its fictional world. Keep priorities like family and school in order. If things aren’t great, do not be disheartened from doing what you love. As long as you are having fun, keep going!
It’s a different kind of happy-high when you are among fellow cosplayers but at the end of the day, it only matters if you enjoyed yourself or not. It’s not about popularity or pageviews, having fans or not, being better than others… no. It’s about expressing yourself through a character you love and sharing it with others.
Hopefully, you’ll make friendships that will last even when the costumes are faded, wigs worn out and cameras stop flashing.
