It seems like a lot of female cosplayers have been getting some flack recently, and they’ve had to justify their “geek credibility” to their fanbase to prove they’re not just another pretty face trying to cash in on the popularity of nerd culture.
With that in mind, here are some interesting facts about me, Volpin Props:
I have never owned a Playstation 1. In highschool, I played three sports and built cars; I rarely played videogames unless it was with friends. I have never purchased a comic book. I have never beaten a single Mario game. Twilight Princess was my first Zelda, FFXI was my first Final Fantasy. I made my Big Daddy costume before I had beaten Bioshock. I have never played OoT or FFVII and I have no intention to ever do so.
I could go on, but the funny thing is nobody has ever leveled any of these things towards me, likely as a result of my gender. Do any of these things detract from my credibility? Should they? In the end, aren’t we all just trying to have fun with the things that amuse us?
i really do like it when people tell me about themselves. it doesn’t matter what. it can be about their day, what they did that they found amazing, what their hobbies are, etc. i like knowing about people. in a way, it makes me feel like they trust me. you’re not bothering me with your rambling. i actually prefer to listen.
earlier i was in the bathroom and jon like crept up outside the door and when i opened it he was like ‘U OK NEPETA’ in a really loud voice (inside joke) and scared the hell out of me and i screamed a little
so as vengeance when he next went to the bathroom and had forgotten about the incident I held my lil cal doll around the corner of the bathroom door and he saw it when he opened the door and he screamed louder than i did
