When I decided to cosplay, the hardest part was deciding who to go as. I narrowed it down to the 10th Doctor and Alucard from Hellsing. I love both, but the final decision came down to weapons and which would be more fun: A sonic screwdriver or two very large guns. The guns won out and the batshit crazy vampire Alucard was it.
So how did that first con go? In a word, AWESOME. I've never had more fun. And I've already planned next year's vacation around next year's Wizard World con in May.
So why do I cosplay? Here are my top three reasons.
If you’ve been thinking of trying cosplay, but still unsure of taking the plunge, just remember that you’re going to be with a group of people that'll enthusiastically welcome you. Just try it once, you won’t regret it - and don’t be surprised if you get hooked too.
Cosplay isn’t just about dressing up; it’s also about having fun and being part of a pretty great community.
So if you’re not doing anything better next month, come cosplay with me.
