It’s made a big difference. I spend more time on my projects and am overall less motivated to crunch. I build less for other people than I used to. I go to less cons than I used to, but am starting to up that again. My partner and I still mask indoors at conventions even tho it’s not required. It’s kept us from getting COVID multiple times while the rest of the friend group gets it. I still make cosplay and love the hobby, but the drive to keep on trend and make a huge amount of cosplay every year has become less of a thing. I’ve seen a lot of friends drop out of the hobby all together too.
