Why Halloween and Cosplay Just Doesn’t Mix With Me

Posted on

Man, as someone who likes dressing up in strange costumes and wearing them in public, one would think that I would use Halloween, a chance to do this and have it seem normal, to the full potential. But I don’t. I just don’t see the point. Not that I’m knocking people who go all out for Halloween. You guys are awesome, and I wish I had that dedication. I make and wear costumes to conventions because I enjoy interacting with people who have the same interests as me: video games and sewing. I like to talk to these people. Halloween, to me, feels like a diluted version of this. It almost seems like a tradition to put on that factory made, costume satin, generic costume. But mostly. I think Halloween is a cosplay waste of time because it is not a forum for interacting with those I have similar interests in. It is the time for photos in crowded apartments with friends, not elaborate photoshoots in elaborate locations with photographers who have elaborate cameras.

I wish I could bring myself to go all out for Halloween, but it just isn’t the same for me.

This is a lame excuse for a post. Truth is, I have not worked on anything for conventions yet because I suck.  Arisia (http://2012.arisia.org/) is happening soon, and I am probably (definitely) going. Students, please check out the price of your pass and ask yourselves why you are not going to this! I don’t really have a costume yet (thinking about Amy Pond from Doctor Who) but I doubt it will be anything fancy because if it is January, I am already panicking about Anime Boston.
