Firstly, my names Jamie and I’m studying tourism in Kamloops at TRU. I’m writing a cultural phenomenon paper related to tourism (basically I get to pick any topic and write 10 pages about it) and I want to write about superheroes, and conventions, but most importantly if its given people a voice that they’ve previously never had. So many people, especially on Tumblr, are finding so many like minded people, and families in their fandoms. So my question and request to all of you is this:
Has becoming involved in the world of cosplay and conventions changed your life in any way?
Has it given you a voice that you previously thought you never had?
If it has, or even if it hasn’t and you have something to say I would LOVE to hear from you.
I’m honestly just do some preliminary research for this paper and I would love to get some real life stories from basically anyone!
Today I got a pretty unusual (comparing to other ones) request in Cosplay Blog ask box. tl;dr, ninety-nine-reasons is writing cultural phenomenon paper about conventions and cosplay and how that community has given a voice to people who’ve previously felt that they didn’t have one. She’s looking for stories from cosplay community people, so if you have some, just send ‘em to her (to her, please don’t send ‘em to our ask/fanmail box, we’ll be unable to resend it to the author).
