13th March 2018: Motivation I need some stealth cosplays that aren't strictly speaking cosplays (but also they totally are still cosplays). Going to cons out of cosplay is something I need to do sometimes if my skin is too sore to deal with makeup and wigs or if I'm too tired and in too much pain to wear anything that isn't fundamentally a tshirt or tunic and leggings. But it makes me unhappy when I'm forced to not cosplay because I'm too ill to. One of my BFF's, Zomboi, used to wear a Nightvale Intern cosplay when we were still doing stalls at cons with Blood/Sugar Cosplay and I've sort of nicked that idea a few times by wearing a nerdy t-shirt and calling myself a "Capsule Corp. Intern" or worn a Red Room Academy t-shirt with black leggings and a ginger wig and called myself a "Trainee Black Widow". So, it's about making a tshirt cosplay that requires no wigs or makeup and basically, unless you know I'm cosplaying because I've explained myself in person, or you recognise my stupid in-joke from my social media pages or because you've bumped into me in one of my Intern cosplays before, I'd pass for being in my street clothes. Sometimes I need to be comfortable and out of full cosplay to practice good self care when my health isn't as good; but that doesn't mean I can't low-key cosplay in a Stark Industries Tee or an Arkham Asylum Lab Coat and knock up an Intern pass card for any imaginary corporation I wish to pretend to work for on photoshop. It also plays big time into my constant, burning need to cosplay as obscure NPC's and background characters that often aren't even actually named in the credits of their media of origin; second only to my love of cosplaying as inanimate objects.
