Do what you feel comfortable doing.
You don’t have to go to a con in cosplay the first time. You can just go in normal clothes, meet some new friends, enjoy the con.
Later on, you can try out casual or closet cosplay. Go to more cons, make friends, be more confident, do a little bit more and so on.
Start smaller and give it time. You may find out cosplay isn’t really for you - and if so, no big deal. You’re not required to like to cosplay. Also remember some of the props and costumes of the more well-known cosplayer may come from years of experience so don’t expect to reach their level within your first try. It’s okay to make mistakes. That’s how we learn.
You will find out in the real world - offline - that most people will be cool with what you are doing. Some may not. That is just life. You can’t pleased everyone. The Chance of someone coming up and saying something is a small percentage. Just remember - your self worth isn’t based on what a random person at a con says.
Hope this helps ! Good luck !
