can someone explain to me why people cosplay? i get that if youre a fan of something, you would want to imitate them, but hours of make-up and more hours of developing your outfit, just to bump and mingle with people on these hot and crowded events and you dont even get paid for taking pictures with them. it just feels like its such a drag and youd get sick of smiling and taking pictures with so many people throughout the day. Some of these dont even have comics and ppl still cosplay it? can you basically be anything you want? the box from Metal Gear Solid?
