This is the 3rd time The Cosplay Chronicles have been a finalist for the award and I must admit, this year I feel a lot more apprehensive than previous years. I feel like I’m going to walk home empty handed again and while I genuinely think the winners deserves their win. It’s still hard to fight that small feeling of disappointment.
But regardless of the result, I’m still thankful for everything that has happened to me because of the blog.
I started the blog because of my innate nature to share and expression my opinions. I wanted a platform to talk about a hobby that I held close to my heart, I wanted a place to clear up any misunderstanding non-cosplayers might have for Cosplayers, I wanted a place to share my crafting tips and showcase awesome Cosplays.
I wanted to have an excuse to sabo (translate: troll) my cosplayer friends , force them to play difficult games and watch them make a fool of themselves
…I like to dig into their bags and force them to show me their intimate belongings.
I even go as far as bashing into their rooms to uncover their crafting secrets.
Yes, I had a lot of fun =) It was all hard work but I had fun too. Never did I expect the blog to gain as much exposure as it did and influence so many people around the world. I lost track of the amount of people who told me my blog inspired them to start cosplaying and the people who became friends because of my WWCPJ project.
Long ago, before I started the blog, a non-cosplayer friend told me he heard about me through other friends who are in the Animanga community. And the very first thing they said about me, was that I was a very ‘Dao’ (translate: proud, snobbish) person. I also have Cosplayer friends tell me that other cosplayers have commented casually about how they didn’t like how I “always only cosplays with people she knows”. I’ll leave you to guess how I felt hearing those words.
Nothing much have changed in the way I communicate with people. I still only cosplay with people I know or are friends of friends. But I like to think, because of the blog and YouTube channel, people now have a better understanding of who “Kaika” the cosplayer is. I guess on a very personal level, this blog have changed my life too.
So thank you for reading and supporting The Cosplay Chronicles.
