I am so not interested in Homestuck at all but seriously this is ridiculous. I wish I was exaggerating but some people seriously believe that because there are a lot of HS cosplayers, they are going to overthrow anime cons and turn them into Homestuck cons. This attitude is actually pretty common anymore— “I’m so sick of HS cosplays!” “There are so many of them, ugh, be original!” “they’re so obsessed!”
Let’s back that shit up. People can cosplay whatever the hell they want. Just because someone is wearing a popular costume does not mean they are a cult taking over, or that that is their ONLY interest in life. I’m pretty sure Homestuck fans go to anime conventions because (GASP) they like anime too.
Even though that fandom has its share of crazies, especially online, let me remind you of Naruto, Hetalia… Every cosplay phase passes eventually, and although you may want to see a bigger variety of cosplayers at cons, I’d like to remind you that no cosplayer dresses for YOU. It’s for themselves and fun!
