2013 - A Year In Review as told by Cosplay

I don’t even know where to start with 2013, so I’ll go from the beginning and just roll with it.
I had just decided college wasn’t the right place for me, and came back home to try and put myself back together again.
Where do I go from here? Where is my life going now if I’m not in school like everyone else is? Am I doing the right thing? (All those existential crisis questions you have when you’re 20)

Fast forwarding to where I am now, I don’t think I’d be where I am without cosplay.
It built up my confidence. It allowed me to meet so many amazing people. It makes me look forward to everyday because I’m just that much closer to the next convention, or paycheck to make something new.

You’ve seen my highs, my lows, and my… Low lows. I don’t think I would have rebounded back from everything if I didn’t have this little,tight-knit community around me that all started from me wanting to dress up as a character I loved and go out into the world to show everyone else.

It really changes your perspective on things when you think of it that way. Here’s looking forward to 2014!
