How do you unplug yourself?
Cosplay: making the virtual world real
I'm an online gamer and a manga and anime addict. I spend most of my time online playing games, reading mangas and watching my favorite animes. Unplugging my self online is really hard and I can't imagine life without the internet.
Cosplaying is a very good activity for me to sever myself with my computer and the internet. Imitating my favorite characters is just like playing online games and updating myself with my favorite animes and mangas. It's like the real world with a touch of the virtual world. Aside from that you will meet a lot of people and share interests with them, it's like logging in on social networking sites. Also, Cosplay helps me to improve my self confidence and My craft as an artist.
Yesterday I attended a cosplay event, It is called "Everything Anime and Manga Exhibit with Ms. Alodia Gosiengfiao" and It's really fun and excitng and I was amazed that there are so many people that supports Cosplay.
Cosplaying is a fun and wonderful way to unplug our selves and connect with our own creative world.
