so is there a certain age you have to be at to cosplay? i started when i was 12 and im 13 now but i feel like i shouldnt do it until im atleast 16. when i go to conventions a lot of people take my pictures and i get loads of compliments but at home my family makes me feel like im jst wasting my time. i really like to cosplay but my parents just think all cosplayers are just poor and hungry college or high school kids that have way too much free time. i know that when it comes down to conventions we are all just nerds in cosplay, but my parents dont realize that its just a hobby.
cosplay is has helped me because it makes me feel useful and it has made me the tops of my sewing class for the last 3 years. its cheered me up when im down by getting me excited about stuff that would just be lame to regular people.
at conventions i feel like i belong but when i go home all my family do is criticize me and its no even good criticism. its the criticism that bad cosplay blogs give out to good cosplayers.
halloween is coming up and even though its illegal to go trick or treating at my age where i live, i cant help but get excited about making a halloween costume.
sorry for just going on and on but i justed needed to get someones opinion cause im still confused about if im wasting my time
