I have been a cosplayer for 7+ years, a dancer for 10+ years, a burlesque dancer for a little over a year, and I've had a history of acting and singing experience. I have a stable lifestyle and go to conventions frequently as well as keeping up on my college work. I was born and raised a Finnish citizen but I am currently living in Texas. I am transgendered, female-to-male, but I make sure that it does not affect my work. (Please use he/him/his) I'm primarily a gamer and anime cosplayer, but I also cosplay quite a bit from various horror movies and regular movies.

I'm a huge horror movie buff and I love both classic and international horror films. Vincent Price is my horror idol. To be honest, I have a little game that I play with every series I get into: What is everyone's fetish?

So, I got an email from CD about my Nagisa Shiota set saying that "Overall, the cosplay was great, the underwear choice was confusing. Mostly, this set just didn't hit the mark. We would love to see it reshot though." I feel like the whole underwear bit is due to the fact that I have a bulge in the pants while still having the chest and genitalia of a female. So, right now, I'm feeling quite distressed because I want to do male characters as authentic as possible, but I currently don't have the resources to do that at this moment. Do I have to wait to submit a set until I've transitioned? Am I really being restricted because I'm pre-operation? I really don't know what to think of this. I can't tell if it's transphobia or being seriously misinterpreted.
