Cosplay for me by YurikoTiger
Cosplay for me
''Cosplay'' an English word that mean Costume & Play, an Hobby born (theoretically) in Japan.
i'm here to talk of what this hobby means to me.
Do you see that ugly, fatty, without makeup and with the expressiveness of a boiled fish? That was me, certainly the worst person to take pictures or to stay in a stage.
I started to do cosplay in the 2008 after being for the first time at Lucca Comics 2007.
I was a very awkward girl, a little unsociable and with a lot of defects, like i think whatever teenager.
The cosplay help me to open up and improve myself, to make new knowledge and have fun, but i'm not a ""good"" cosplayer because i'm terrible to sew; instead i love interpret the characters of my favourite series, make photoset, performance and have fun with my firends at the expos. A little more than one years i live in Tokyo for learn the Japanese language, work and try to realize my greatest dream, orelse become an artist\idol\original character (a little hard to explain) and a lot of little wishies that gradually are being realize. (join in an artistic agency, go on TV, perform with other Japanese cosplayers, dance with some dancers of NicoNicoDouga, meet people that i followed. )
I'm a model in Tokyo for events and often in cosplay and that is the best side, but i'm not here for symbolize "the Italian cosplay", i never enjoy the Wcs and i don't think of be a "particular race" just because i practice cosplay.
i continue this hobby because i love it and maybe i'm fanatic of it.
Like i say often in my videos, i don't have particular talents neither a particular beauty or an amazing body. I like do what i like, share it and often, although my self-esteem is in the bottom, i try to focus to realize my goal. When i talk of the 'cosplay' i'm immediately excited, from the teens at nowadays i have a lot of memories yet..
The first event, my first firends, the first friends, The Lucca Comics (where every year coincided with the train strike </3) and the first exciting performance.
Why practice cosplay? That was my dream since i was a kid, "i would become..."
Linving in a country like Japan, where the "COSPLAY" means much more than "have fun", but be popularity, naked, money and shops, initially i was a little bewildered from that, but i never go "against" and i started to interested anyway.
uncertain fate, i don't see me beatiful, neither i did nice cosplay but i grow up and i improve. Do you want to do what you like? You got only one life to do it. A lot of people see me and tell me "Why waste you your time like that? Maybe in a few years you'll tell to you "what did i until now? My answer is: MY TIME (with MY WALLET), i can live how and how much, in the respect for others and when i'll be adult i not'll think to having wasted my time, but i'll remember how much i enjoyed it and how much i grow up whit it.
I hope this is the same for you.
You will be always an "idiot" for many.. maybe you'll be a super-hero or a character that you love, but especially you'll be for you.''

*sorry for my english ><

My story with Cosplay

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 21, 2013, 3:00 PM
"When did you start doing Cosplay?"
I've doing cosplay since 2008.
At that time i didn't want to be myself because i didn't like me so i tried to be someone else that i could admire. Then i realized that cosplayin' is what i was searching for.
"Did something changed since then?"
Since then, my life is completely changed.
Cosplaying is helping me being more creative even if i don't really like sewing clothes and modeling armors and weapons.
I'm not really good at it, i can't do perfect cosplays and even if my dream is to become a cosplay model in Japan it doesn't mean that i'm taking advantage of this passion of mine.
I, for sure, enjoy myself with cosplay and i think that if i could change it into a job then i would be really happy because this is my dream.
"Did something changed in your private life?"
When i started i had no friends at all, i was nobody and people always were bulliyng me at school.
For years i only met persons that pretented to misjudge me, to make a fool of me and nothing of what i said was taken seriously.
I always defendend my dream going ahead and never turning back. Today, finally, i found a lot of friends. With them i starting to be happy. They make me feel special and loved.
I have a lot of fans (and haters) and it's ok like this because now is starting my new life.
I have a dream and i like to share it with whom i love.
I do cosplay because i love it, that's it.
