Father and Son by SoloGrayson Father and Son by SoloGrayson
Sometimes people call out the cosplay community for being judgmental, rude and so full of drama it's completely toxic and up until a last Monday I probably would have agreed. Besides the close group of friends I have I was pretty keen on keeping mostly to myself for the fear of the, very false, reputation cosplayers have as a whole.

But this Monday I was not only surprised but shocked to my very core. I asked for help from the cosplay community via an indiegogo page. I asked for help to afford medical bills and the community responded leaps and bounds beyond what I ever thought was possible. Cosplays I had never interacted with but I had looked up to were suddenly sharing my link on their pages. Fans were getting their family to donate to help me...I couldn't believe how fast everything spread and how eager everyone was to help.

I'm so thankful for this community, not only because of the wonderful friends it has blessed me with but for everything it's ever done for me. It's given me the tools I need to grow from the camera shy, antisocial girl I was in high school to a woman I feel is starting to truly understand herself. I may still be working out my place in the world but with everyone's love and support I'm sure I'll figure that out soon enough.

I'm proud to call this community my family--no matter what kind of reputation it has to outsiders.

Thank you, everyone. For every favorite, for every comment, for every watch. For anything you've ever done to help me along my journey.

Family Themed picture for all my feels. Don't you judge me.

the one thing that would tear away from this pretty awesome balance is what would happen if one of them slipped....but this is still awesome
