In the beginning I was a bit quarrel (independently if it´s a gift or not), because I was afraid that it would not work correctly. A lot of people complain of the small and comparatively cheap airbrush beginner sets you can get in the web. I´ve been thinking a bit longer about it and wanted to give it a try.

Last year at Epic con I had my first cosplay contest ever. The last stage performance was in the kindergarten or maybe primary school, it´s even so long ago, that I can´t remember.

The last weeks before the convention I watched out for some youtube videos, forum entries and blogs about the “cosplay contest topic”, but felt a bit overwhelmed and scared about it. There are so many different types of conventions, conditions and implementations with different rules and severity and the more I read or watch, the more uncertain I got. So I decided to stop doing this and also making myself crazy about the effort I´d be “meant to”.
