Hacer cosplay vs. Ser cosplayer
Hace ya más de un año escribí en esta misma columna sobre el tema del cosplay. En aquel entonces sólo había hecho uno, y además de la poca experiencia tenía también poco conocimiento sobre este arte-pasatiempo-actividad (escojan ustedes su propia definición).
Últimamente por motivos profesionales he estado zambulléndome en este tema de nuevo, y aunque lo que dije en ese momento sigue teniendo validez, creo que es hora de hacer un remake.
Para retomar, la palabra cosplay deriva del inglés "costume play". Literalmente significa "juego de disfraces", pero como en toda traducción no debemos tomarlo literal, porque se perdería mucho de su significado. El cosplay va más allá de ponerse un traje e incluye la representación del personaje. Para los fans el cosplay se ha convertido en una de las representaciones máximas de su fanatismo, y prácticamente en

I sat on my knees in class, watching as Master Kiku demonstrate a new technique to the entire class.
"Then... you move out rike this..." He enthused, continuing on to move his foot around his partners ankle. "And purr." He yanked his foot back, causing the other to loose her footing mid-punch and fall to her knees. "Do you see now?"
"Yes, master Kiku." The class nodded enthusiastically.
"Who wourd rike to try it?" Everyone but me raises their hands. "How about you, _________-san?"
"Oh uh...hai Master." I nodded, standing up from my kneeling position.
"Now. We're going to stage this rike a sparring session. Your task is to tie it in."

When you calmed down some, enough to be able to see where you were going and to walk, Arthur stood you up and ushered you into his dorm room. He sat you down on the bed and shooed Alfred out, telling him to go with Matthew. Alfred would have made a joke about make-up sex, except he saw your red puffy eyes and a glare from Arthur saying "If you crack any jokes or tell anyone she's here, I'll personally kill you." Alfred, before he left, gave you a hug, which you graciously returned. Then he was gone, leaving you alone with Arthur.
You kicked off your boots and moved up on the bed so your back rested against the wall. You pulled your knees up to your chest and wrapped your arms around your legs. Arthur sat next to you and put his arms around your shoulders, pulling you into his bare chest. If you weren’t so distraught, you would have blushed.
"Talk to me, love." Arthur said.
You almost started crying again. After you had ignored him, gave him the cold shoulder, even took Eliz

“Well, that is it for today. We will meet again in a couple days.” Alfred, the American at the front of the room said, pulling her attention away from the outside world. Everyone stood, as well as herself, and she was about to go towards her friend when a voice called her back.
“_____, could you help me with something?” She turned to see Yao, the man from China. He also sat next to her during meetings, since they were close friends and he wouldn’t have to sit next to anyone else.

He and Prussia returned to the school about two hours after the girls did. The first thing England wanted to do was to find you and Hungary and apologize. Apologize to Hungary for almost killing her and to apologize to you for keeping secrets after he promised no more of them. He felt absolutely terrible for the whole ordeal. He should have just told you like Hungary told him to do in the first place.
He screwed this up more than he did the first time when France had gotten in the way. He was such a bloody idiot. The first time since the revolutionary war, he despised himself. He ruined something, again, with someone he cared for deeply. Why does he always so these things?!
He left Prussia at the front gates of the school and rushed to your dorm, knocking on your door with the side of his fist, calling out your name. You didn’t answer. Hungary didn’t even come to the door either.
First it was neglecting America. Then it was lying to you about what you are. Wha

You set your fork down, rolled your hair into a bun, and stood, setting your napkin on the table. The restaurant wasn’t busy, and normally you wouldn’t do something like this, but you were a regular. The small French bistro was where you spent most of your waking hours, and most of the staff knew you well.
Picking up the omelet on its clean, white plate, you made your way to the kitchen. You pushed the door open, and emerged into a very homey kitchen. The walls were baby blue, chrome appliances sparkling in the light of the numerous windows. The kitchen was quiet, but for a golden-haired man at the stove.
You marched over, set your plate on the island, and began to look through the cabinets. The man turned towards you, his mouth open as if he was going to say something. Then he

You turned towards the voice. "Oh. Hey, America."
He ran up to you and grinned widely, his eyes shining behind his glasses. "What are you doing tonight? Want to go out?"
You checked the date on your phone. It was Friday. There was no school tomorrow… you really weren’t doing anything but part of you didn’t want to do out. Your chest and heart still hurt.
"I don’t know…" You replied.
"Come on." America said. "It'll be fun. Trust me."
He gave you a small smile, pleading with you to go. You stood your ground. Then America shot you the puppy dog eyes. You caved. I mean, how couldn’t you?
"All right, fine. I'll go out with you." You said.
He smiled at you. "Sweet, dude! Thanks!"
You tried to smile back, but you couldn’t. You started walking to your first class. America followed you and took your hand. You didn’t care enough to take it back, so you just let him hold it. After class, America took you to the next class, holding y

He decides to look for you first, and try to apologize. He lets out a frustrated puff of air and shoves his hands in his pockets. He feels like a stranger in an unknown land, for he came back after 11 years. There were slight changes in the neighborhood; a few houses have new tenants or maybe got a color change.
Overhead, the sunny afternoon sky turns quickly overcast, and he feels the rain lightly dripping down on him. He makes no effort to shield himself or wipe himself off. With eyes on the ground and head buried in thoughts, he doesn't notice the light jingle of wind chimes and your voice.

You and Arthur stared at Romania in shock. Wasn't he just dead a second ago?
Nobody moved a muscle. You couldn't help but wonder if you were dreaming, hallucination, or going crazy. Was he going to dissapear if you moved closer?
"Really? No "Welcome back Romania", or "We missed you dearly"? Not even a hug, or a few tears?" As soon as Romania finished his question, Arthur jumped onto him, and started sobbing into his chest.
"Now, now, Artie. I missed you as well." Romania patted Arthur on the back.
That got you out of your shock. "....But...how?" You asked.
"I'll explain that immediately, please take a seat." He gestured towards some chairs in the room.
Arthur untangled himself from Romania, and the three of you took your seats. You never once took your eyes off of Romania.
"You see," He started, "I knew that Artie was unhappy for a long while, ever since I accidentally cursed him when we were both children."

“Damn it Ludwig, stop walking so fast! I’m tired, and if you keep walking fast then I’m going to make you carry me! This whole idea was your stupid plan anyway!”
I turned around to see Romano slowly walking behind me, struggling to keep up with me as I ran. As much as I wanted Romano to hurry up and stop walking so slow, I didn’t want to have to carry him, so I waited for him to catch up with me.
Once he was standing beside me, I continued walking at the same pace he was. I could hear him breathing heavily from the running we’d been doing, and I could see our breath puffing up into misty clouds in the air. It was freezing outside, and we’d been walking for days.
“We should be getting close to King Ivan’s castle now. Hopefully your parents, Gilbert, and my parents will be there.” I said.
I heard Romano angrily grumble, “You better hope they’re there

Alfred just sighed in boredom. “I told you I was going to do this, so just go with it,” he rolled off in a bored tone.
Vash muttered in an irritated way as he moved over for you to sit next to him. You did so with a little blush of your own. You’d never tell anyone, but you had a pretty big crush on the Swiss man.

"You're Arthur Kirkland?" You murmered, not sure what else to say.
The man released his grip around you, took off his hat, and held it across his chest. He then followed it by bowing slightly.
"The one and only." He said looking up to you and flashing a toothy grin. "I heard you were having troubles."
At that moment, you were sure that this was all just a hallucination. You had just dreamed about the mint colored bunny, the dark forest, and the man that stould infront of you now. In fact, you were probably still under your tree, having fallen asleep under its cozy shaded resting spot. You were dead set that's what had happened.
