Hi, my name is Grant and I am kind of an aspiring cosplayer. The thing is, I have huge builds for cosplays that I don't think anyone will really like and I'm not sure what people will think of me. Currently I've finished a big Braum shield build but I'm really all irl, it just kinda scared me at first because I wanna cosplay someone so giant and muscular.. Any tips on keeping calm?
Hi, Grant! :D Really the main thing here is to just chill and realize that it’s only up to you to decide whether or not what other people think matter to you :) Because even the greatest cosplayers still have their haters, but they don’t let that get them down :D
You can cosplay whoever you want, and if it’s a character that seems out of type, you can either adapt it, or use other means (like altering the fit or cut of a costume, make-up, etc.); and of course, it’s also absolutely okay to cosplay that character in whatever way makes you feel comfortable :D Cosplay may sometimes be a competition, but first and foremost, it’s a hobby to enjoy :D
Hope this helps you out! :D Feel free to drop more asks in my inbox if you want! X3
