Yes, when cosplayers decide to dress as a certain character and do their best to act as that character would, they are in a sense, trying to become someone else. But the truth is that you bring some of yourself to everything that you do. One person's characterization of Sailor Moon is not the same as someone else's. Even if two people stick to a basic Sailor Moon costume, they will differ in accessories or stance or even in the way they interpret the character.
And going to a cosplay convention is a great opportunity to get insight into the ways that other people view the character. Seeing other interpretations and getting to interact with others while in character can enhance your appreciation for that character's story.
But really, do you need more reasons to go to a cosplay convention? After all, aren't all of us looking for more ways to have fun? Those of you who have already been in on the fun know how what a great time you can have. For those of you who are thinking about it, but are a little hesitant, why not give it a try?
