Over recent years, bullying and body shaming have become a huge issue. Really, it's not just in the cosplay world but life in general. It seems like every time you, me, or whoever, turns around, negative and hurtful words are being thrown up in the air like deadly spears. Those things hurt! They hurt a lot. And it takes a lot of energy and courage to go outside in the big wide world with a costume on, that you may, or may not, have made yourself.
