So I just got another comment explaining to me how someone's friends are really mean and evil- and how only their cosplay friends act this way, and it's always just in the community… how the community is really horrible and twisted- and people are so friggin mean- and I just want to point out something of relevance and address this because it's really starting to confuse me… just because of this-

It's not 'just your cosplay friends' or 'just the community' it's everyone.

Humans act this way.

People want validation for their work, time, effort, and artists are one of the biggest roles in which the only validation you generally get only that, and sometimes people don't even get that pat on the back.



It's really tough out there.

So yes- human beings may attempt to out shine you, or put you down- or accuse you of things- it's habit. This would not apply just to the cosplay community- have you ever had to put your art in a gallery? Trust me- not everyone is going to be all thumbs up if your work is sub par to theirs and if you're peers with people it's even worse. Everyone is a shining miracle of ability- the work environment and job environment in that field is tense…because praise is so rare, getting paid? You can almost forget that. It's tough out there in the world, but that's just it- that's what it is, and it's not limited to "just this group of friends" or "just this community" and I'm sick of hearing bad shit about cosplayers in general, I'm sick to death of it because it's normal,and it's not limited to just this community.


(Not to confuse my meaning or point to be "everyone is just a bunch of jerks lol")

I dunno I think it's just a matter of competition. You can say "cosplay is for fun" all you like, and other people can call it "just a hobby" but people are spending HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS, and hours and HOURS of work- in order to just do something for fun. Sometimes they may attempt to validate this with praise-sometimes they attempt to get their money out of it by selling it after- but however you attempt to validate the time and money and energy you get out of making a costume, make sure that validation does not depend upon others. It's when the concept of their version of "HAVING FUN" relies upon others that people end up hurting their friends. Don't ever be co-dependent upon your friends never messing up, never being competitive, and never being HUMAN. Drive to only compete with YOURSELF, and make costumes ONLY FOR YOURSELF, do things to be BETTER THAN the you of yesterday, not better than others, or to put yourself above someone else. These are mistakes - and pit holes, that we fall underneath. We compare ourselves to others, and if we feel inadequate, we have to bring them down. We have to FIND SOMETHING we don't like...and then we can't let it go. They just can't NATURALLY be enjoyed by us, because we are human...it is what we do. It is who we are.

I'm normal just like any other human being- and sometimes if I know I worked really hard on something, and it bombs, and gets like 2 views, sure, I get a little upset…just like anyone else. I wouldn't attempt to compete with someone else, or put someone else down, but I do feel the sting of it. Or if someone complained about me when I was in costume, or started rumors I was in it for the attention- - it kind of hurts, makes it harder for me to enjoy it- but I have to remember that gives them power over what I do, and if I am in the mindset that I am going to have a good time, there's not a thing anyone can do about it. Free will and all. Hence I give myself down to Earth attitude by saying this: "Shit will happen, people WILL talk shit, others WILL hate on me, my costume WILL probably fall apart, I WILL probably sew this sleeve on backwards again at some point, and there's really nothing I can do about it." Right- "Except, how I REACT to it."

Because that's the world- that's what we live in- if we expect something, then when it doesn't come, we can't be stressed about that- sometimes we think things will happen, and something else does.



Expect the expected, expect the unexpected, but never THINK something will go THIS CERTAIN WAY and hold onto that as truth, that way you don't hold anyone to some sort of perfect standard, and then you will be able to control your reaction so much easier.



Just think of the megaphone as your own personal ability to control how you react to something xD and suddenly you can do whatever you want.

What's more important:

YOU DO IT TOO.

I don't know a single person out there who is a saint, this goes for everyone again, not just in the cosplay community. If you have never said anything out loud- good for you, but you thought it. YOU got jealous of someone with an infinite amount of pageviews- YOU got upset that someone on DA/FB/TWITTER/whatever got more views than you on a costume or got more props at con or la de da /reasons. Or you got upset ABOUT someone - or nit picked them, or FOUND something- to hold them hostage from enjoying them.

It happens to all of us- just some of us are more vocal about it.

It's called "jealousy"

We're HUMANS. We're ARTISTS, we're WRONG sometimes.

And i'll tell you what feeling wrong feels like when you don't know you're wrong- it feels like BEING RIGHT.



Sometimes we feel right, and we feel validated about what we are doing, when we are very wrong. To me, some of the most important people in my life are not people who are always right- they are not perfect, they are far from it...I may call them "perfect" but it's only because they are my heroes, and I love them...because they admit when they are wrong. - They realize, and take the time to listen when people explain to them how their actions have hurt others, and they make up for it. To me, this is what it is to be perfect, to me, this is what I want in my life. When I see someone who cannot realize it, who won't admit to it- and is just always such a victim, and is always so justified in their own actions, I cannot trust them...and I don't want them in my life anymore. It's HARD to admit and realize you're wrong, and it's even harder to live up to the mistakes you've made once you see them- but to me, that is so much more important, and I would freely forgive someone who had the strength to do that. I would want that in my life over someone perfectly inhuman any day of the week.

I've thought the whole nine yards of bad things- but what made it work for me was that I -realized- I was -WRONG- before I got upset. Before I said / did ANYTHING about this, I understood I was jealous- and I stopped it. That way I didn't say some unwarranted messed up comment, or posted on some anon forum to ream someone from the shadows, that way I never hated anyone, and respected and admired people- because that's what I really want to do - giving face is one of the MOST important aspects of my existence. I say more positive things about other people than I could ever care to say for myself... and it's because I know myself. I know when I'm jealous- and I stifle it before it becomes a problem for someone else, before my WRONG feelings become a burden to others. I have to live with myself, and my mistakes, and so I have to make sure I stop them before I make them. If I make them- I have to make up for it.



That's how it works.

The point is to be HONEST with yourself, everyone. Why are you saying these things? Why are you being vocal? Why are you putting people down? And if the answer is because you're jealous, or competitive, then just switch it up. Look at all the good there is out there, and let it go. Why waste any time being upset at anyone, when you can enjoy them? It's gonna happen- you're going to look down on your friends once and a while, be judgmental, and you're … going to be wrong.

Just realize yourself, and that way you can avoid turning other people into these horrible malevolent jerks. Because if you're this beautiful wonderful person, who's never been wrong, you lose what it is to be human, and then you never learn what it is to really appreciate your flaws. To be human is to make mistakes, to be wrong, and if you're always perfect——then what room does that leave for you to make mistakes? To learn? To improve?

It only leaves room for other people to make all the mistakes for you. You won't ever learn because you won't ever take responsibility- you will keep making the same mistakes, and you will keep throwing people under the bus you made and you will keep jumping from friends group to friends group until you either learn and improve, or just find someone who will put up with your abuse. Find someone who will burden themselves with all of your mistakes, and you will hurt them, and you will make them wrong for you- and you will keep it up. Just become abusive? For the rest of your life? That's no way to live.

If you are wrong- there is nothing wrong with YOU- that's what we are. If you are unable to see it...well then...



You can make everyone else evil, and that's just no good.

And if someone else is being jealous/competative/angry at you- it's human nature, they will get over it, or they won't…but the best way you can take it is to move along and consider it flattery- after all- a goal of happiness is measured by how we choose to take things.

So please- take things with a grain of salt, react well, and BE WELL. <3

With all the earnest sincerity I can give XD <3 Cyril <3

I know I have been jealous in the past for a lot of things. My best friend got better grades than me, she had a brother who cares about her and helps her, and she sees her parents often. I now am much more mature and am happy for her instead of being jealous.

We can be jealous over anything really. I used to be upset I had no family, and got confused and jealous of other kids who had the nightly dinner. The first time I had one I was with a friend of mine, and her family was so gorgeous...but for them it was a normal thing. They had invited me as a guest, and I never wanted to leave. I was afraid to ask what to do- how to pass the salt, give butter, and I spent the better deal of my young life staying at her house since. <3 So it was a GOOD thing in the end that she had such a great family, because it really shaped who I am.

I know we humans can't control our jealousy, but i feel that the one thing we humans make mistakes with is greed. People are so greedy nowadays with money and the quantity of stuff. This is why there are so many problems in the world with war. I don't judge people, but I really hate war!! I can't accept the fact that people's lives are at state for stupid arguments

I am not sure if greed is responsible for war, you'd have to know a lot to know the root causes for a lot of wars, and I'm not that researched, but I do think that greed can be very dangerous.

I try to be nice to everyone but know not everyone is the same way unfortunately. I just try not to associate myself with
people who are narrow minded or hateful. As with my fanart and other art, I basically do it for myself first and not to please
someone else. If I post something and someone likes it, then that's just a bonus. Of course if it's a drawing for someone, then I do care
whether they like it or not. I think I agree with most of what you said and you must have been in deep thought when you wrote this journal. :love:
As for cosplays, since I don't cosplay, I don't know how competitive or jealous
cosplayers are to each other irl or on dA. All I know is I fave and comment/compliment on cosplayers all over the world whether
they are beginners or veteran cosplayers. But then again, I don't know if there are cosplayers that I fave and it might be a cosplayer
that another cosplayer on dA doesn't like. I just hope they don't hold it against me if I fave someone that some other cosplayer doesn't
like. I just try to be kind to all cosplayers!! :heart: Great journal and look forward to more photoshoots of you and :iconantiquity-dreams: together. :rose: :iconmonkeyloveplz:

I always appreciate views for my costumes- but sometimes if I get like next to nothing on something I can feel a little down. I try to avoid feeling that way though because I know that that's not why I should feel motivated about something and move on.

I know some people have actually gotten mad at me before legitimately because of the amount of attention that can sometimes flood my online sites. So they lash out at me in weird ways and then if I handle how I respond to them, and ask them why- it has sometimes been confessed that it's because of jealousy and competitive natures. I've always forgiven the source but it's sad to me that it happens because in the end I would trade all the attention in the world for an honest stable relationship with all of my friends. I can only try to make them feel better by being calm about it- but I've never really needed that in my life so it's difficult and stressful sometimes when it happens.

I think it would be nice, but also very boring, but at the same time some disagreements we could do without... if only certain people would think back and reflect on those times, they could have changed those things they did as they did them.

I hope that people never make a mistake that they never regret because they never learned they had made it and never realized to learn from it. Knowledge is important...the knowledge of self is more important than anything else.

Which makes me feel a deep sadness.

Or learn the wrong way, rather than accepting it humbly and attempting to correct it- they sit it in and continue to deprive those they have wronged the justice of healing and resolve. They continually hurt other people and crowd themselves with those that would approve or enable it. I dislike this mentality greatly. I hope I never come in contact with it.

Though I agree with what you're saying, I think there's another issue of anonymity. Maybe my perception is skewed, but people can talk so much trash on 4-chan and some people believe it, even though you can post anonymously. I don't see any anonymous soap boxes at works or in any sports. Every word can be traced back to a person and they're responsible for what they say or do. I think people in general are just as mean and even more so when money is involved, but I think with cosplay, there are more tools to slander another person. I also think that with a younger crowd, there's a higher sense of entitlement or need for validation as you say.

Anyway thanks for sharing your views. It really shows that you put alot of thought into it.

Firstly, I love the poignancy of using Feeny to underscore what you're saying. Just proves how true your words really are. The first step in making the most of life is understanding yourself, which definitely includes your flaws. I couldn't agree more when you say that we're all just human, we all get jealous. Because it's true. Everyone has been jealous of someone else at one point or another, whether they want to admit it or not, even whether they know it or not. But accepting that you're only human (which includes all the pitfalls of emotions) makes you better for it.

Secondly, this is one of the main reasons why I think you are absolutely amazing and why you're one of my idols. Not many people will sit there, and truly think about the world and the way people react to it and things in it, then share their ideas/knowledge/realizations/experience with others in such a profound, awe inspiring and thoughtful way.

I know from the time I was in elementary school right up until my early high school years I always wanted the other kids to like me, but I was always the one that got picked on and teased. Looking back on it now, I realize I was jealous of how easily they made friends with each other, who for me (being as shy as I was, and generally still am) it was much harder. Of course, by the time I got to 10th grade I didn't really care what anyone thought of me anymore. If I made friends, great, if not then so be it. I didn't need to be jealous of everyone else to try explain why I wasn't happy with my life and myself. Once I figured that part out my life got better. I didn't need to put myself down as the reaction to my own jealousy.

I think it's not so much that people don't really think of it- I think that a lot of people are afraid to talk about it- and I don't necessarily blame them. I feel like the moment I put this out there, that I will be crit for it. I don't mind so long as people can share clashing opinions in a mature manner, but I fear the unintelligent response.

I just wish someone had said this to me, so I say this to everyone. This is the only reason. I personally don't want anyone to have to feed into the jealousy like I did. Or respond to the competitive nature of others like I did. It's best to just ignore it - and you can feel so much better for it.

I think it might be a combination of the two. Like I said, they might not even realize that that's what they're doing/feeling. I agree though, a lot of people that do realize it are probably afraid to say it because they're afraid of being criticized in a negative way. Unfortunately the unintelligent response is the more common one.

I don't like speaking on behalf of more serious issues- because it is more common for people to put people down and nit pick - and avoid the point of the matter.

I don't like to get caught in crossfire.

Unfortunately "being competative and being jealous, I mean seriously- those are first world issues I imagine I'm typing about. The fact that I have internet, a roof over my head, and the ability to really eat, sleep, and live comfortably means the world to me. This kind of stuff comes secondary, but I do think a lot of it is sad, but not necessary in some ways to say.

I just wish someone had told me this when I was younger, perhaps so I wouldn't feel so bad if something like this had happened to me.

Yes there is so much to be thankful for. Cosplay is a wonderful hobby to have but it shouldn't consume your life or anything. If cosplay stops being fun, then something needs to be done because this is a fun hobby.

It would have been nice to have learned this at a younger age but the fact that you learned it now is pretty valuable. It's no fun to learn it this way but now you have it down and can learn from the lesson.

This..is exactly what I needed in my life. A few weeks ago, I got kicked out of my cosplay group/shunned by my friends/etc. because of some very stupid comments I made while angry at one of them. I had been appalled they'd taken it to such a level, since I had apologized as many times as possible and admitted I was VERY wrong and, quite simply, a bitch to them. It had been over cosplay, but it leaked over into how close my friends and I were.
I suppose, looking back at it now, it was only fair this happened. I really hadn't learned any type of lesson from it, and I suppose this is how I'm paying back what I did wrong. It does still annoy me a bit, seeing as I tried to admit that I knew I was wrong and would try to learn and just be friends with them from then on and they refused, but I guess it's really for the better. We had grown distant anyways, and the friend I have given so much shit to without realizing it is still by me loyally..and I never realized just how much I had hurt him until then. It's really made me watch myself instead of letting my anger take over me, and hugely appreciate him to a new level...so, I suppose, if the rest of them aren't going to give me a chance, at least he always has..and I'm starting to work on how to pay him back after all the times I've hurt him with my comments without realizing it. It's going to take a while, but it'll be worth it. :')

Knowing what you did wrong and realizing it should be more than enough for now- and if they do decide to take you back in take that opportunity. Sometimes things can be fixed and sometimes things need time to cool down. They may need a minute to remember the you that they enjoyed- and they may need a longer minute to be able to trust you again- but as long as you have continuity in the fact that you've learned and don't make the same mistakes, it should be okay honey bun. <3

D'aw well put! ^^ I've actually found -in my life as far- I've met these actively jealous types more often outside of my cosplay circle. Heck, it was probably back in high school was the last time I've seen people being outright rude and deceptive. Back then, I've seen people being mean-spirited and people being victimized, especially within my group of friends. It was terrible and something I would never wish upon others. I've learned to eat my jealous feelings and turn it into admiration long ago. I have to admit that my life is pretty wonderful like that ^^

You're right that it's a human reaction and everyone is susceptible to it. I do feel it when I'm at my weak moments. But it is definitely how you use it is what matter ^^ Obviously treat people with respect, the way you want to be treated. If they treat you otherwise, don't fret~

Yea no I can see all these things as true. It can happen anywhere- plus I hate to say this, but the cosplay world is comprised of people who are very young and sometimes haven't fully fleshed their personalities out yet.

I wish we had a Mr. Feeny in every school <3 maybe that would have never happened then xD

^^ I remember seeing it on tv, but it wasn't for me. I think I was so wrapped up in Power Rangers at the time OTL

Well said! I wonder what the world would be like if others would just respect and accept others around them. Like you said, we are all artist, humans, and sometimes wrong. You would think we would remember the rules we learned in Kindergarten:

Share.
Be Nice.
No hitting.
And Make friends.

And the Boy Meets World/Mr. Feeny wisdom brought back my childhood and my inner dork.
