Of course they asked why and I told them the truth of what I felt; that I was too ugly and fat to cosplay. My friends couldn't believe that I would say that about myself but they saw how genuine I believe the words to be.
They told me about how much fun they have at cons when they dress up and that it doesn't have to be anything serious as sometimes they go in casual cosplay like homestuck or MLP:FIM characters. They really encouraged me to try cosplay as they said they'd be there to support me.
When I look back on it, it seems a bit funny that my friends who are a few years younger than me, had to encourage me to try cosplaying. But without them I don't think I'd ever try.
Well enough about that part, onto what I've decided to cosplay as.
I'm actually going as two characters from the Madoka Movie:Rebellion
|Nagisa Momoe and Bebe|
My mom even wants me to cosplay something else as well. We watched the first season of RWBY together and she wants me to cosplay Ruby Rose
I think for me the most fun would be in constructed the Crescent Rose scythe as I always loved making sculptures and helping out making props for people.
Looks like the next couple of months I will be super busy for the con, hopefully though all the hard work I will be doing won't be wasted.
I'm still nervous about this whole cosplaying ordeal, but I also am excited. As time goes on I hope the nervousness and doubt goes away.
