I recently discovered that my good friend, Tabitha, just happens to be the events director of the con I'm going to in November. Talk about luck! I revealed to my parents (remember, they are cool people. I don't know how they deal with having a nerd for a daughter) that I would be cosplaying. My mom really surprised me, saying she'd be willing to help me put together the costume! Her exact words were "Go big or go home." 
I was SHOCKED!
My mother is normally opposed to nerd stuff. I'm so thrilled she's onboard! I think I've managed to convince my 'rents that nerd can really be cool! My dad even wants to cosplay now! Since he is a rancher in real life and already has the natural cowboy look, I recommended going with a character like John from Red Dead Redemption or Indiana Jones even. I think he'd make a great Indie Jones!
As I've mentioned before, I will be cosplaying Asami Sato this year. I'm going to try to learn to sew next summer so I can really expand my range of options. Technically, I'm built more like Korra. I've been working out a lot and doubled my martial arts training, as I do every summer. I've never gotten a slim, elegant, feminine build out of it (I still have a figure, I'm not mannish, but I'm very muscular). I've always automatically put on muscle weight, actually getting bigger rather than smaller. I'm just so white though, and I already have some things that would work for Asami's outfit. Plus, I adore Asami and there's nothing wrong with cosplaying her!
I'm really excited about this con, can you tell?
