Ok so I went to metrocon 2014 with my girlfriend and best friends this weekend, and I met Jack and Kelly! Now I’ve gone to metro a few times and seen them there, but my cosplay had never been so much of a show stopper before, but in the last year my cosplay have really taken off.
But Peter is one of those cosplay I love and hate. I am fat, I know it. There is no denying I am fat yes it is a descriptive word for me, but I love cosplay. My girlfriend also does Harry Osborne and I love it because we’re such a cute couple as them. But as Peter, because I have seen how some people have been treated and how I have been treated as before in cosplay I was very nervous. I could feel the butterflies in my stomach as I got my suit on. I was really tempted to change back to my Sailor Uranus cosplay and just go as her all day, but luckily my girlfriend and friends convinced me otherwise.
Thanks to them I kept my suit on and got so many compliments, and Jack noticed me in his Loki and pointed me out. I was freaking out at this point and my girlfriend just kinda shoved me at them and was like take a photo now you know you want to.
So while we were waiting for Kelly to finish something I was thanking Jack for complimenting me and I was telling him how hard it was for me to wear that cosplay and feel so confident. Then what happened next almost sent me into tears.
Jack just looked and me and said why are you so nervous? You look amazing! I wanted to start bawling because Jack said one of my cosplay, me plus size cosplayer in a zentai I looked amazing!
Jack gave me such a confidence boost that I was able to stay in Peter all day, take a lot of photos, and have a great time because if my girlfriend and Jack and Kelly think I do an amazing Peter it must me true!
So all in all amazing con, and thank you Jack for the confidence boost. I look forward to finishing Mystique because now I will feel amazing as her and not worry what other people say about it!
Plus Jack sempai noticed me!!!!!
