Greetings, Vocal readers. I'm back with another cosplayer interview. I love interviewing different cosplayers and getting to know more about them. Between the summer of 2018 and now, I've interviewed over two dozen cosplayers. Cosplayers from other countries to here in the United States, every one of them were amazing. The next cosplayer that I got to interview recently is Wesley Jermaine Thompson, a Steam/Dieselpunk cosplayer from Florida. Before I get started, I want to remind everyone that if you like any of my articles, including the cosplayers I interviewed earlier this year, please feel free to send me a one-off tip, which is located at the end of every article. No tip is ever too big or small, because it helps me and other Vocal creators write better stories. Also, be sure to join Vocal+, a premium membership with new features and benefits. Thank you in advance for the support you have shown to me in 2019. As I've stated in my last article, I'll have more cosplayer interviews posted here on Vocal in the coming days, so please check them out, once they are posted. In the meantime, please enjoy my interview with Wesley.
Greetings, Vocal readers. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The month of December has finally arrived and we are weeks away from saying goodbye to 2019 and hello to 2020. To end the year on a positive note, I've had several cosplayers who have recently contacted me to be interviewed and a few of them are coming in the coming days. Recently, I had a chance to interview cosplayer Key Jones. Before I get started, I want to remind everyone that if you like any of my articles, including the previous cosplayer interviews I've done earlier this year, please feel free to send me a one-off tip, which can be located at the end of every article. No tip is ever too big or small. Your tip helps me and other Vocal creators write better stories. Other than that, I hope you enjoy my interview with Key.
The holidays: it’s supposed to be a joyous time to spend with family and friends. However, for an introvert like me, it’s easier said than done. With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas weeks away, my opinion about holidays in general have drastically changed over the years. What’s the point of celebrating them if you’re always alone and have no one to spend them with? I have a story to share with everyone and you’ll see why I don’t really get into them that much.
Hello, neighbor. The moment you’ve been waiting for is finally here: my thoughts about A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. I’ll be sharing parts of the movie that stood out to me. Before I go any further, I want to remind everyone of a few things. The first is that if you love any articles I’ve written so far, please feel free to send me a one-off tip, which is at the end of every article. No tip is ever too big or small. It helps me and other Vocal creators write better stories. Also, in case you’re keeping count, this is the second movie I’m reviewing. I rarely review movies, but will do so if a trailer or trailers of an upcoming movie capture my attention. Last but not least, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might not want to read my review because it will have spoilers. So go ahead, see it, come back here, and then read my thoughts about it. As for everyone else who has already seen it, I hope you enjoy my review.
Greetings, Vocal readers. This article is for all the Spider-Man fans out there. On this day a year ago, the most amazing thing happened to me that it almost didn’t become a reality. I’m talking about one of my cosplays: Captain Spidey. On November 21, 2018, I got my very first Spider-Man suit from Zentaizone, which sells different kinds of suits, including Spider-Man suits. It took me a while to customize my suit and choose my measurements, such as the size of my waist, feet, and arms. Luckily, I got the hang of it and ordered it. I had to wait a few weeks for my suit to arrive. On the day it was supposed to arrive to me, there was a problem. It was sent to my old address as opposed to my new address. So I had to go to the leasing office of my old apartment complex and pick up my package. I opened my package and when I tell you, my eyes lit up. I couldn’t believe that I now owned a Spider-Man suit. I posted pics of it on my social media pages and did a live stream, receiving positive feedback.
Today is a day of remembrance of transgender people who have lost their lives. Every year on November 20, Transgender Day of Remembrance is held for that purpose and also, it's because these crimes are not reported and often misgendered by the media. This day was first held on November 20, 1998, following the murder of Rita Hester, a black trans woman. Nearly two dozen transpeople have been murdered so far in 2019 and it's important that they deserve to be protected and free from discrimination. Unfortunately, there aren't many states that have protections for transgender people, which can pose a risk of them being murdered or taking their own lives. Here are some more shocking and disturbing stats about the killings of transgender people worldwide:
