Pushpop, I think you're overreacting a little bit. The AP awards aren't by any means a proper judge of cosplay ability, or any ability, just a glorified popularity contest.
You once asked me why people keep lashing out at you. Here's the perfect opportunity to express yourself with dignity and, if it comes to it, bow out with grace. You might not win some gay contest, but you can at least win back some respect that you've lost over the years.
Alright, I'll reply this once…
Thanks for the words, taboo. I know I don't need some online forum contest to prove to the world that I'm a master of cosplay. I've already accomplished that a dozen times over. It's the point of having numberous efforts of redemption shot back in my face as if I never made them. I don't give a reindeer's ass of what 6 or 7 loser users (like ones seen above) think about me. What upsets me most is that there is another mod on AP that I long considered to be an online friend. Someone I really liked and respected well before he got a mod internship. Today, this person lashed out at me and I totally saw a new side of him. And when I tried to set things right and took the time fill in the "plot holes" for him so he could know the whole story from all points of view, he still persisted on hating me.
I apprieciate your encouragement, but there will never be any redemption. Any further efforts are futile. Everyone is already set in their ways. It's over. The end. Done. El fin.
However, I'm glad I could leave here on a positive note with you. Taboo, you're my nakama too.
Now, Sunny-Go, set sail for new horizens!
There is no limit! Fuck the sky!
