Have you been in a situation when a "friend" someone super lagkit kung makadikit, wants to cosplay someone you also want to cosplay? I just mentioned kasi sa facebook na I wanted to cosplay Shion from No.6 then she goes "Oh I'm cosplaying it too! Dapat di tayo sabay." She did this to me twice now. What would you do ate cath if you were in this situation.
Natawa naman ako sa description mo XD Kakanin ba yang friend mo?
Anyway, first I will rid myself of this super lagkit person. I don’t keep a lot of friends. I have learned that to be happy in life you must try to be genuinely kind and understanding to all, and stay away from toxic relationships. There’s no point being “friends” or close friends with someone you do not enjoy being with. You will only hurt this person and cause yourself stress.
Second, cosplay is open to everybody who is a fan of a certain fandom. No one has the right to tell anyone “you can’t cosplay this because I’m cosplaying that”. YOU DO NOT OWN THE FANDOM. Only the creators, IMO can say something like that. Now if this person is cosplaying for other than “giving homage to the fandom and because I fukkin want to” that’s no longer your business. The world wouldn’t end if you both go as Shion at the same time.
A lot of my friends enjoy the same series/game/whatever. For example, Luie and I both love Sheryl Nome. We both want to cosplay her (she already did). But I don’t think there’d be a problem between us if I cosplay her too. My rendition will always be different from her, even if we got the same Sheryl Nome costume. There won’t be a problem between us because we’re not competing, we’re just showing the world how much we love Macross’ Galactic Fairy. Isn’t that the point of the whole thing?
Cosplay for the love of it. Keep this hobby as drama free as possible.
You should get more patience and understanding and this friend of yours should grow up.
