I have only had experience of cosplay by watching v-logs of the american conventions, hopefully I can change that soon.
The bit about cosplay that I really like is that whilst in cosplay I'm not me I'm someone else, I'm someone who is confident enough to stand in front of a camera whith out covering my face (I'm quite camera shy). Also the problems that I have faced in life, no longer seem to be mine.
I think that what got me started was that I wanted to escape from being me, even if it was just for an hour. And probably what I could aslo say is that I have always liked dressing up and making my own stuff that is personal to me.
