Ooh, a fairy! by RuJa4EVAThe Sun Never Sets by RuJa4EVABritish Empire by RuJa4EVA

Hello friend, watcher, or follower! If you're reading this, it means I value your opinion in helping me make a decision!


The pictures above (or below, depending what site you're viewing this on) are of me in my England cosplay. 

Recently, due to lack of funds, use of the cosplay, and other reasons I have considered fixing the cosplay up and selling it.

(Feel free to skip this part if you have no interest in a little backstory and reasons why I am considering this: I cosplayed as England when I first got into Hetalia because I love the character and wanted to see and interact with an England cosplayer knew none. Coincidentally, the four Hetalians I knew at the time cosplayed France, Canada, and America perfectly set up to potentially become a FACE family. Thus I took it upon myself to cosplay England, expecting fully not to meet anyone who would cosplay England for my remaining time in the fandom.

That was back when I was terribly shy and had yet to make any friends at conventions or meetups. However, as I grew my confidence expanded (a teeny itsy bit, but it did!) and I've suddenly found myself with what I like to affectionately refer to as my "collection of Englands". In other words, I am now friends with at least 9 bloody brilliant England cosplayers.

Thus, this with this "collection", I no longer feel the need to be him anymore. Even more than that, I think those in the collection cosplay him so well I wouldn't do him as much justice as they do. I would prefer to be around them as a different character, laughing and smiling at what an amazing England they are rather than constantly comparing myself to them.

However, some teeny tiny part of myself doesn't want to give him up. He's a beloved character to me, and my first semi-successful cosplay.)

In making this decision, I would like to take into consideration how others view me as Arthur. It'll be easier to give him up if I know others feel the same and see me as "just another England cosplayer" rather than "Your England cosplay really stands out to me!" 

I'm happy to retire it if it will not be missed, but I'm more inclined to keep it if those whose opinions I respect would prefer I didn't.

I would love to hear your opinion on this matter.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Got back from an anime con last weekend. Nothing to do now. I really have no idea about any cosplay events happening over the summer. You have any events happening over the summer?
