I made a video, it has some cosplayers in it.

oh my gosh this is so good


oh wow

If anyone thinks cosplaying is childish and dumb, please watch this.

It’s so much more than that.  This video is beyond words…at several parts I actually started crying because everyone is just having fun and not caring whether or not people think they’re weird or strange or anything.  Every person here is beautiful and fantastic and hilarious and just…oh god…

I’m sorry gosh I’m crying so hard right now I can’t believe I almost gave this up because I felt awkward and stupid and isolated and I desperately wanted to fit in with everybody else.  But because of this video…I don’t feel so alone anymore.

Cosplaying has become a huge part of my life, and I don’t think I could stop even if I wanted to.  I’ve never met such nice, happy people who are comfortable in their own skin and in their interests.  This community has changed the way I live and the way I view myself.

I don’t care that I may be judged or defined by what I like and what I do.

Thank you to who made this video.  I’ve been struggling with parents and family looking down on me because I’m interested in cosplaying, and this has convinced me not to give up on what I love.

(now excuse me while i go get some tissues…)

((btw my favorites in here are the el dorado guys, the jade/dave/john, the dad/vriska scene, the girl with the huge claws, shiek and zelda, tinkerbell and peter pan, and……everything))

Happy to hear it’s made someone’s day XD  This post made mine!

reblogging again just for that text comment ;_;

i love this omg nvjdkvfngdr omg the dad vriska part made me laugh

Beyond all the drama and stupid fandom fights, this is what it’s all about guys.

You see, I went through this telling myself not to cry, that over the course of my life I have made at least one cosplay as good as some of the lesser ones featured here.

And they’re only going to get better.

My camera work, however, will never in a thousand years with very expensive cameras and jibs be that good, so I should just focus on the costuming.
