I had a super fun time at SacAnime. I was feeling a bit bummed about my cosplaying lately, let me tell you why. I set a certain standard for myself. I am VERY meticulous when it comes to me cosplay technique and construction and after my Black Rock Shooter cosplay I felt I wasn't as good as I had been lead to believe. I had decided after my Simca cosplay that I would 'take a break' (contemplated quitting altogether) and focus more on my studies and life things. I had so much fun at my last convention as Simca. I feel, at least, like I looked just like her. I am so proud of myself, and did an amazing job. The point of this isn't to be cocky, I'm hopefully being as humble as possible. I feel good now though. I've overcome my emotional obstacle in cosplay, I can't wait for next con, and I can wait to see what i can sew up next. Thank you everyone who has supported me through these highs and lows. I know that not many people read DA journals, but if you got this far, thank you for listening (or i guess reading) to what I have to say. I don't want cosplay to be stressful for anyone, and I hope no one will give up on it.
