Cosplaying and dating. That’s right were talking about a very
interesting topic today one im sure many have asked about and are
currently debating. There are many advantages and disadvantages
to dating a cosplayer and today we will discuss a few of them. So,
sit back and strap in, do whatever you need to do because were
about to dive into it.
Lets kick this off with the most obvious reason to date a fellow
cosplayer, they watch anime. Lots of people love language involves
spending quality time. Well if your one of those people then you
definitely want to date a fellow cosplayer. Friday and Saturday
nights can be spent cuddling on the couch and getting acquainted
with each other’s favorite anime. Its also brings the added benefit
of given you both new cosplay ideas, and who doesn’t like cosplay
couples? FYI the answer is Nobody!
Next up we have Gifts. Everyone likes gifts! If you say you do not
you just haven’t received a great gift yet. Because contrary to
popular belief, receiving is better if just not as good as giving.
Never in the history of humanity has someone received a brand
-new Ferrari and thought, “wouldn’t it be much better to give one
of these away than receive one”. But I digress, sharing a similar
interest with your significant others gives you a huge clue as to
what to get them for those special days.
Maybe a Chanel hand bag filled with their favorite animes or
anime paraphernalia. You are definitely going to win BF of the
year with this combo. Similarly ladies, you can get your man that
awesome sword replica he has been wanting. The one that’s
actually sharpened, because dull swords are for losers. Well,
unless your at a con, then its just simple safety.
Now onto something less superficial, at the brings us to
understanding. Understanding someone is a MAJOR part of any
relationship. Obviously the goal is to get that point where you
know each other’s thoughts without saying anything. Well
that’s gonna be very difficult if they don’t get your jokes and
innuendoes. If you tell you lover her cooking is over 9000 and she
looks at you with utter confusion, she aint the one bra lol.
Similarly, ladies, if you get mad at him and throw something and
he dodges without looking and you say this must be “the power
of ultra instinct” and he looks confused, I got some bad news for
Lets be honest cosplayers can be a bit different from main stream
society. Our thoughts and actions are awesome and far better than
your average member of society’s but I guess its all a matter of
perception. Cosplay is a passion for many of us and our significant
others has to understand this. Attending cons and adding that
extra bit of detail to the costume to get it just right is crucial. With
that being said, creating costumes takes a significant portion of
time. Meaning, there’s likely to be some physical and emotional
neglect, especially if you do not do cosplay for a living.
All of this can be avoided if your partner is a cosplayer also. Not
only will he/she understand but they will also be working on their
cosplay’s. So time that was potentially viewed as neglect is now
quality time spent together. See win, win scenario.
