I've always been teased when I was younger because I was always the one that would come to school in my outfits and stuff. I would get teased for it but it just made me want to do it more because it got me attention. Even though it was negative, half the time, it was positive because more people started to notice me when I was doing it because of the negative attention. So it built my confidence up. I have really bad social anxiety and it helps me just doing this stuff to make me better at all the things I do. Just coming and being around other people like me makes me feel more accepted. I'm autistic too and it helps me with that too.
I have a stuffed animal his name is Mokona. He is a character from anime that I have loved since I was little. I've had him since I was nine. He was the last thing my dad gave me before he left and he told me never stop being myself. Mocaba usually comes with me in my cosplays. He's usually dressed up with me. He's a memory that inspires me to not be afraid of who I am.
