A Nerdy Hobby: Cosplay / Crossplay


I am quite the loser when it comes to most of my hobbies. I got teased for liking anime and manga all the way through middle school and I understand why. I was one of those greasy, obsessed, pimply people who nobody wanted to talk to.
 But, now that I have grown into myself a bit, I started to become more comfortable with what I like and who I am! So I am going to share a bit of what I'm into, specifically : Cosplay.
For those who are not familiar with that term, It is used to describe the act of dressing up as a certain cartoon character. If you want more detail, a Wikipedia search should give you a more through rundown.

So why do I do this?
I simply think it is fun because the cosplay community is surprisingly full of talented, beautiful people who are all open to talk and become friends. I met a lot of my close friends through this hobby and even though we might be scattered all around the world, we still stay in a tight community and plan meetups yearly.
I also like to cross dress as a guy. I know that's weird but hell I think its super fun. I gotta admit, I look pretty damn good as a guy don't you think?
Yes that is me. Aren't I super handsome? Did you fall for me? *shot*
I'm Rin Okumura from Ao no Exorcist.

I also went to the biggest anime convention last year for the first time, Anime Expo Los Angeles, and I seriously cosplayed seriously for the first time there. I felt super vain because my friend and I were very pretty and we attracted those photographers like bees to honey.
Here are some pics of us from last year:
Panty & Stocking: I'm Stocking the one with the blue hair.
That was the most risque outfit I have ever worn. But we are proper ladies so its ok.

So do you cosplay? If you do, speak up! We could be nerdy together!

Random life update: 
I'm so stressed from school that I ruptured a blood vessel in my eye. Therefore, I can't wear contact lenses for two weeks. NO CAMHO FOR 2 WEEKS? *sigh*
It was so red and scary but now it's a lot better. It's a big relief because I love my eyes ok? But now I'm stuck with my no lenses face and I'm not used to it. I'm a lot less dolly without them.
Look how red it is now. ewwww

I want my contacts back. I look so old without them.

That's all for today guys. I need to go back to studying chemistry. Ahhh I'm such a slacker.
