Why Do I Cosplay?

I’ve written about why I blog, so this time I’ll write about why I cosplay.

  1. It’s fun. I like fashion and clothes.
  2. It’s a way to show my love of anime.
  3. It’s cool to own things from anime. For example, I have Luffy’s straw hat from One Piece, Kaneki’s mask from Tokyo Ghoul, a No Face mask from Spirited Away, Mitsuha’s hair tie/bracelet from Your Name, and a lot more stuff. I don’t care much about expensive, brand name things but I like to own things from anime because I think it’s cool.
  4. Cosplay is a creative outlet.
  5. I get to look different anytime I want. For example, I’ve cosplayed as Nana Osaki from Nana (punk look) and I’ve cosplayed as several boy characters. I’ve cosplayed as child characters and as mother characters too. Even my day-to-day style changes all the time. I don’t like to be restricted to one style because I like to feel free and fluid.
  6. Cosplay has helped improve my self-confidence. I cosplay for myself. I am happy when people tell me that they like my cosplays, but my own self-perception is really important. When you see photos that you feel proud about, there is a feeling of self-satisfaction which ultimately boosts your self-esteem.
  7. I’ve met cool people through cosplay and it has also reaffirmed my friendships because it feels so good when you are supported by friends.
  8. It’s a way to spend time. I spend most of my free watching shows but cosplay is a break from watching something.
  9. It’s fun to cosplay at conventions.

In Case You Missed It: My Favourite Posts of 2019

Here are my favourite posts of 2019. I’m thinking of writing a post for each year but we shall see.

Leaving Twitter

Deleting my Twitter account was a huge change for me. I do miss my friends but it was not a good place for me (due to reasons outlined in the post).

Finding Inspiration in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer)

This was my submission for Jon’s Creator Showcase- November 2019 Edition. The Infinite Zenith did a fabulous job with hosting!

The Rising of the Shield Hero Impressions: Episodes 1-7

I had fun writing episodic mini reviews.

Beautiful Hydrangeas

These are the first shots I took with my DSLR. I love hydrangeas.

My friends and I went to a sunflower festival and we had fun taking pictures. I like the wildflower photos the most.

I borrowed a cosplay from a fellow Anime Club exec. These photos are from a cos test the day before Clubs day at the university.

Inktober 2019 – Days 1-3 

This was my first time participating in Inktober. It pushed me to draw a lot.

Steam Clock in Gastown, Vancouver 

A lot of you guys liked my photos of the steam clock in Vancouver. Some of you thought it was a screenshot from an anime, which I thought was quite amusing.

Umaru-chan Cosplay

I’ve cosplayed as Umaru from Himouto! Umaru-chan before:

I love cosplaying as Umaru because it feels very natural… I can relate to her character really well.
