356 days or more, or less in the World of COSPLAY

Hello everyone and everybody. Hopefully the world is doing well, and Mother Earth is..doing fine. But anyways, hope all is well. So, I'm back again with a new post.

A year ago, or maybe slightly more (I can't really remember, blame my poor memory), I joined the Cosplay world. Yes, I am a cosplayer. Little did I know, a year has already passed since that day. And so today, here I am with a little something of something. And that something would be cosplay (obviously -_-). 

I've learnt plenty of things during my time cosplaying. I've also met a number of people during that period. Some were friends for the moment, and some other for longer period. Then there were those whom were friends for life. The journey so far was indeed, a great ride, bumpy and full of road blocks and potholes but nevertheless, a joy.

I remember the first time dressing up, putting on a wig, and contact lenses. How nervous I was of walking out of the changing room. How awkwardly I posed when taking photographs. How nervous I was to pose with other people.

What was most important to me though , is the values that I learnt from the cosplay world. Although many of the older generation think that cosplay is a waste of time, money and energy. It is not necessarily so. There are a lot of of things that I have gained and still many more to come. Here is what cosplay means to me.

It is not just that 7 things that cosplay taught me. There are plenty others such as responsibility, confidence, love, achievement, courage, originality, social, skills, and much much more.

All in all, it was a great year, and hope for a greater one to come. =)

I Cosplay To Express, Not Impress.



  1. Hey Vincent,
    I'm new in cosplay
    and i wanna be a cosplayer too

    but I have no idea where to get all those costumes.
    So, sorry to ask you, did you buy the costume or you rent it from somewhere else?

    1. Hey =)
      If you understand or can read chinese, has a variety of costumes and props you can get varying from cheap to average and pricey. Quality wise follows the pricing.
      Or you can search around in
      There's a bunch of people selling things there.
      OR, you can always go to cloth and textile shops, buy your own material, and look for a tailor who does costumes.

      Where there's a will there's always definitely no doubt about it, a way. =)

  2. Thank you so much!! Cosplay sounds so much fun and i can't wait to experience it !! =)

    1. Cosplay is fun, and what's even more fun is when you cosplay a character you love and carry it out to perfection. Doesn't really matter what people critic about you, just take it as constructive criticism and improve.

      There really isn't a right or wrong, it's just how people think. =)
